Tasks and priorities are always changing. Checkvist makes this SO simple

Checkvist is an elegant, lovingly-programmed, fun-touse dream of a solution if you need collaborative outlining. Nothing else comes close. Iʼm a big fan of OmniOutliner, and this is just as good (maybe better!), and works for groups. My large team built an ambitious project with CheckVist, and it never let us down (nor did the highly-responsive developer).

Love checkvist.com. Such an awesome organiser.

It's extremely useful for research, both gathering notes and outlining documents. What makes it great is that I can easily reconfigure notes as new ideas develop -- build new categories and regroup thoughts.

We needed a tool to maintain a complex software release procedure. Checkvist nailed it perfectly, with a clean and simple UI.

Checkvist is just perfect: I can quickly identify the various projects that I have, I can quickly insert new data and, most importantly, I can show the progress of my projects for the parents and school board at any time!

I keep smiling every time I try something and it works the way I think it should.
