Marking Items Done & Topics

When you are trying to get a project done getting your stakeholders to focus is key. The design has been approved and the last thing you want is to introduce the ability to change something that is baked. One of the key aspects of any review is to focus in on what you actually want to be reviewed. Once you have that focused feedback, checking that off a list is key to keeping track of everything. This helps keep everyone on the same page for what is left so nothing slips through the cracks.

I built setting a Topic and Marking Items done directly into Punchli.st.

Now when you create a project in Punchli.st you can set a topic: Need just copy feedback or how do the new images look? Tell your stakeholders to focus on that and when they load the project they will get a popup (like below) giving them a heads up.

Marking Items Done

To complete the loop I wanted to make sure that you can stay on top of what things were done. Now you can simply hover of card and click the checkmark. If you want to review all the items that are done you can simply toggle “Show Done” at the top and bring them all back for review.

Two little features to hopefully help you get your project done sooner with happier stakeholders.

Excited about this little feature since it came directly through customer feedback. Design Extensions in St. Augustine has been using Punchli.st to help get their client and team feedback. One thing they kept running into was feedback coming into late, so they wanted to be able to lock in all the feedback. We built a...

First pass at video onboarding
May 24, 2019

tl;dr; I have a feeling you are going to see more video onboarding within apps soon; people don’t like to read. It is pretty easy to get up and running with a video onboarding, but if you don’t want to read and just want to watch you can skip to the end of the post...

Where am I heading?
April 2, 2019

For the last 20 years, I have been talking to clients about getting their projects launched. Starting in 1999, my neighbor asked me if I knew how to build a website. I didn’t, but within a few days, I had something running on Homestead (I think that is what it was called, o.g. Webflow 🙂...

My frictionless getting started
March 29, 2019

Until recently I had a pretty standard flow within my app. You sign up, create a project, share it out, and wait for feedback. I’ve talked previously about sticking to the critical path. I took a step back and consider how could I get a user to start collaborating on a project as quickly as...

Critical Path

Often times we can get caught up with the hundreds of other things we think we need in our products but you forget to take that step back and ask if my core product flow is working. ...

I am learning the hard way that demos and on-boarding are two separate beasts. Sometimes it's hard not to confuse success in one for success in the other....

Why Solo?

Previously I wrote about what I knew I needed to learn in order to build a product. Occasionally I’ll get asked if I had so much to learn why was important to me to build Punchli.st alone. I’m sure there is some deeper psychological reasoning but the easiest way to explain it is I don’t...

How and what did you need to learn?
January 16, 2019

tl;dr Everything. One of the thing that surprises people when I talk to them about building Punchli.st is the fact that I had never written software before. I’ve always had a technical slant to my work, but I always leaned toward design and strategy. So one of my fundamental goals with Punchli.st was to learn...

What's Punchli.st

I built Punchli.st because keeping track of what is still not done and what issues everyone is running into is hard especially when you are racing to launch....

I've been meaning to start this blog about my experiences building Punchlist, but it requires writing and putting myself out there, so I decided that was not fun and put it off... till now....
