More granular than the Dashboard, the Checklist allows you to track ownership and the actual components of a single launch

To guarantee a successful launch, the Checklist allows you to build a launch checklist that aligns everyone around the launch campaigns, internal enablement and required customer support initiatives. Ideally, this component keeps you from wasting time on duplicative work and chasing down deliverables.

The Checklist is made up of two components – Tasks, Due (Date) and Owner. Tasks should include all items needed to launch the product. This extends beyond the build of the product and includes all customer touch points. You’ll want to include the full lifecycle of the launch from inception to internal enablement and beyond.

To begin, you’ll click + Add a Task and Owner. The task owners will need to be licensed ProductPlan users. You’re able to assign who is responsible for what during this step. The task owners can be either an editor or viewer. Even with the viewer permission, the task owner will be able to update the status of the tasks they own. We want all deliverable owners to share responsibility for keeping the Checklist up to date.

You’ll want to keep tasks at a level that is fully deliverable. For example, a blog post title or image is not a full task. The totality of the blog post is a proper task. This also gives the responsible party an ownership and discernment to determine what is necessary for that deliverable to be successful.

Once the task is completed, you’ll be able to mark it complete by clicking the box to the left of the Task. If you need to delete a Task, click the three ellipses at the right hand side of the line.

Checklist enables you to manage the launch strategy rather than the minutia. You can keep stakeholders in the loop while assigning deliverable responsibilities to the correct party. This lives alongside your roadmap and feature details.

On this page, you’ll notice two additional components of Launch Management – About the Launch and Features in the Launch. About the Launch gives an overview of the launch with the Description, Launch Date and Status. Features in the Launch will show the roadmap and Feature connection.

As Launch Management is currently in beta, please share your feedback and thoughts.
