Checklists in ConstructionOnline™ have the flexibility to be structured in whatever manner may best address the scale, scope, and requirements of your projects. As an additional level of organization, ConstructionOnline™ Checklists can also be organized into an unlimited number of convenient Folders & Sub-Folders to support a superior level of detail.

By grouping construction Checklists within clearly labeled Folders, construction companies can: 

  • Find & manage their Checklists easily and efficiently—reducing the risk of project tasks being forgotten or overlooked 
  • Share & update task lists across project teams—decreasing the possibility of miscommunication and incomplete information 
  • Improve the management of construction Checklists overall 
Construction companies can also standardize Checklists company-wide by duplicating Folders with Checklists to other Projects or building out a detailed Folder & Checklist structure in a Project Template for future re-use.
