Utilizing Process Checklists in Shape

Create and manage checklist items for your users to follow internally. This process checklist appears in the left hand sidebar of the record details page for your users to stay on track. This tool is a wonderful way to keep track of a process or processes in progress as well as a tool to bridge the gap between manual and fully automated processes. This feature can be as simple as a templated task list for internal use to keep track of a process or a robust automation tool by connecting triggers to checklist items.

Start by clicking “Settings” in the top gradient navigation bar. Then click the “Custom Configuration” dropdown to find the “Manage Checklists” settings page.

Trigger Automation off of Checklist Items

Create automation off of your checklist items by adding triggers.
