3 ways this template can help you manage projects

1. Delegate to-dos 

To keep your project moving forward, use the @mention function in a checklist to assign to-dos. This adds collaborators to your doc, so they can see what’s needed and when.

2. Gather feedback in one place

Emailing files back and forth can lead to confusion. This project management template lets your team work together in the same doc, add comments, and always view the most recent version.

3. Consolidate project assets

With this template, you can add context by embedding all kinds of content—code snippets, YouTube videos, Dropbox files, and more. Paste the URL in the doc and a preview automatically appears.
