I sent this to Monique privately at first, but here it is for the list as a whole.

In addition to In Progress and Done, I would recommend adding a Blocked status. This helps track those tasks that have dependencies on others that can't be done until those issues are resolved.

Good luck!

Theyâre enthusiastic for me to create a Tech Pubs board, and so Iâm looking for some best practices for managing doc tasks, which will range from high-level/complex items (âchoose an authoring toolâ) to low-level tasks (âRevise topic-A on the helpsiteâ).

Typical lists on many/most of their boards are Backlog, Roadmap, In progress, Recently Done, Done, ToDo, Shelved, Freezer (presumably means, âShelvedâ). I could see having lists for different priorities of ToDo (or is there a secondary property that would be good to use on items in the same list?), In-Progress, and Done. Not sure that I need much else?
