Adding a Task List to a Project

Version 10


All projects in Domo, including your "Personal Tasks" project, start out with these basic task lists—"To Do," "Working On," and "Completed." These lists are all part of a general chronological workflow. Generally speaking, tasks that work hasn't yet started on would be placed in the "To Do" list. You would then move them into the next column, "Working On," when work actually began on them. Finally, you would move them into "Completed" when the work was finished. For more information about moving tasks, see Moving Tasks Through a Project Workflow.

However, you may want additional lists in your workflow. The basic workflow stages that appear by default in Domo may not be specific enough for your project. For example, you may want to add stages such as "Ideas," "Customer requests," "Won't fix," etc. Domo lets you add as many new workflow lists as you want. All new lists must conform to one of three basic types—"To-Do," "In Progress," and "Completed."

You can add a new list using the New List button, which is located in the top right corner of a project page.

To add new task lists to a project,

  1. Open the Projects & Tasks page by selecting Projects and Tasks in the More menu at the top of the screen.

  2. Click the name of the project you want to add lists to.

  3. Click New List.
    A dialog appears.
