Better of 2021 – Interactive Checklists in Google Docs

As I do yearly, I am taking this week as a break from publishing new weblog posts and might be republishing a number of the hottest posts of the 12 months. New weblog posts will resume on January 1st. 

This week Google introduced
more than a dozen updates to Google Workspace products. Included in these updates is a brand new textual content field function in Google Paperwork. The brand new textual content field choice can be utilized to create interactive checklists. These checklists, identical to another Google Doc, might be shared with colleagues and college students who can then cross off gadgets as they’re accomplished. 

In this short video I display how one can create interactive checklists in Google Paperwork. One of many neat issues that you will see within the video is that you could modify the scale and magnificence of the checkboxes by utilizing the font menus in Google Docs.  

Purposes for Training

My first thought when seeing the brand new guidelines choice in Google Docs was that it might be nice for college students to make use of when planning group initiatives. The group can have their to-do record and all the particulars of their plans on the identical doc as a substitute of getting to make use of a separate job administration instrument or having to put in writing/re-write feedback when a job is accomplished.
