Creating a checklist now takes 3 clicks!? There's an easy way to fix it...
- Add a button next to "Add Checklist" that says "Add Checklist From Template".
- Also, don't ask me to name the checklist before creating it (it's obvious you can edit it after creating it).
That way, it's only one click to create a new checklist.

Ivan Villa: thanks
Why does this still say planned? I'm pretty sure this issue is fixed now. One click to make a blank checklist, two clicks to create from template.

Too many clicks to do anything and everything in this software. Maybe they should invest in hiring top talent UI / UX professionals.
Merged in a post:
Fewer keystrokes to add a checklist
Reduce the keystrokes needed to add a checklist in the task modal.
- Sometimes the checklist is renamed but not always.
- When a checklist is added the next action is adding checklist items unless it's a templated checklist.
I suggest adding a control like 'Quick Add Checklist' next to the Add Checklist control.
The new control will create a checklist with the default 'Checklist' name, and move the cursor to the new checklist item.

Nick: Seriously when will checklists be global too? So when you update checklist in one place it updates everywhere else.
Benjamin: Do you mean something like being able to mention a checklist (similar to how you can mention tasks, docs, people)?
Nick: No, so if you edit a checklist template now & it’s saved in a task that checklist does not update. They are static & you have to remember to update them everywhere.
Nick: Is this in the works?
Benjamin: Yeah, that's incredibly annoying.
Nick: Just a popup that asks "Update template?" when you click save.
I agree - the default name "Checklist" is fine for 100% of my uses. If I want to use a template I could do that after creating the checklist.
Jake Spirek: Yeah this change annoyed me today... change it back :)
Ian Warner: How was it before? I feel like it's always been a tedious 3-step process?
Luis Ramirez: I agree that I don't remember it ever being 1 step lol But yeah please make it one! :P
Kimberley Shepherd: haha yeah I don't think it was ever one step! It's why I rarely use checklists, TBH!
Luis Ramirez: Yeah, it's always been several steps, but this just added onto it :(
