What Is A Checklist?
A checklist is a precise list of all the things that are to be done in a particular order, so that nothing is missed out. A checklist is made to reduce any chance of error that might be caused due to lack of attention or limits of human memory. When doing a project, a checklist makes sure that all the things have been done with integrity and in an organized way. Checklists also arrange the things which were done and how they were done at every step of a project. A checklist should be well-defined, easy to read, to the point and easy to follow. Checklists are used in almost every field. The examples of checklists include: to do list, project checklist, shopping checklist, schedule, time table, course outlines, personal checklist, diet list etc.
How To Edit A Checklist?
When working on something, you may need to edit the checklist. A checklist can be edited to add new steps that were missed out or were considered unnecessary and it can be edited to make improvement in the already written steps. It can also be edited to skip a step which has no effect on the overall project. Grammar and punctuation check can also be included.
Now, when you need to edit the checklist, make sure that the editing is precise and also consider the effects of the edited steps on the whole checklist, like, sometimes two steps are co-related and in order to complete one, the other one should also be completed.
For example, you were working on an thesis and you had made yourself a checklist for that. While working on the thesis, you realized that one of the topic was overlapping with the other and the content of both were almost the same. So, you edited your checklist to skip one of the steps which was lesser important and it didn’t affect your whole checklist.
