Chklsty

Other Chklsty for checklists benefits

In addition to the main benefits listed on our front page, Chklsty for checklists has some other neat features, including:

No lock-in, easy edits

Especially when starting out, you’re not entirely sure how your business will use Chklsty. No problem, everything in Chklsty is easy to edit to suit your change needs (or increased understanding).

Customisable details

Each checklist item has the checklist task itself, for example:

Mop shop floor

But each item can also have details to help staff remember (and to help new staff do stuff right), for example:

Use red mop bucket (blue one is for windows only). Use 50ml of “Handy Andy” floor cleaner with 10 litres of water.

This feature is especially handy for occasional users, for example, sending out a monthly e-newsletter, where details can be forgotten in the long gaps between jobs.

Human-friendly web addresses

Each checklist a staffer works on has a unique web address (URL), based on the checklist. When making a checklist blueprint, Admins can select which key items of info should appear in the URL (along with the staffer’s name). For example:

https://www.chklsty.com/john-smith/close-up-store/july/2018/12/er515428/

In this example we can see that the employee is John Smith, he’s working on closing up the store, on July 12, 2018.

Accurate data, including user timezone

Each user has a timezone setting, so cross-zone interactions are sure to be clear and accurate.

Zero bandwidth costs

Employees can use Chklsty on any device (for example, their smartphone), and not worry about data usage – a typical checklist completion is under just 100Kb of data transfer.

Helping you succeed

Illustrated Walkthroughs for common tasks. Detailed FAQ’s (for both managers and staff). Practical in-line help. Meaningful Case Studies. Blog posts where we go meta on checklists.

And helpful customer support always a simple email away.

One checklist, multiple users

Some jobs are done by several people – concurrently, or one after the other – but only when all have done all their work, can the whole job be considered complete. For example:

Steve’s bookshop also has a small site where customers can order books online. When an order comes in, Steve’s bookkeeper needs to process the payment, then someone else needs to pick-and-pack the books, and it’s usually Josh who sends the package at the Post Office because it’s on his way home. But, because Steve knows that every order is important and rare books can be damaged in the mail, he wants to check the package is good before it’s sent.

In this case, the order of things matters – we should not send the book before payment has been verified. Each person has some tasks to do before this order is considered complete, and Chklsty helps ensure everyone has done their part. After the order is sent, the checklist is submitted by the last person in the chain, but can be easily found by the date, name of any of the staff, customer name, book title, and so on (if the customer never got the order, or got the wrong items, we can trace back where the process broke down).
