About Checkvist

Checkvist is an online outliner, similar to applications such as OmniOutliner on the Mac.

Fundamentally, you can use it to create hierarchical outlines. Checkvist has a lot of extra bells and whistles that facilitate its use for basic project management. Items can be assigned to other users, given due dates, and have annotations from members of your team. You can also tag an item with a hashtag.

None of those fetaures get in the way of straightforward outlining, however. Plentiful keyboard shortcuts mean you can use Checkvist to quickly set down your thoughts without having to pause to hunt and click with the mouse. The use of shortcuts is so extensive in fact that users of the vi editor will feel quite at home!

Crucially for a web app, Checkvist speaks the standard file format of its genre, in this case OPML. You can both import and export OPML. Other import formats include plain text and Confluence Wiki syntax. Those formats are supported for export, along with simple HTML.

Printing is also well supported through an HTML view that gives you the options of hiding or showing the checkboxes and notes.

Most of the functionality is available for free, but you need a Pro account to unlock the groupware features and advanced tag management. Along with that, Pro gives you HTTPS access, backups and UI customization.

Checkvist’s UI is clean and functional, though a little ugly to my eye. A Pro subscription lets you tweak the UI some, or you could install a browser extension similar to Stylebot and do it yourself.

  • Overall, I'm very impressed with this app. The pro account adds file attachments, read-only users, task assignment, UI customization and many more features. I've used the app on Safari, Firefox for Windows, iPad and iPhone. The web app works well on iOS and provides several touch based actions and tailored UI for the smaller screens. I'm sold.

  • CheckVist is a helpful tool for anyone who has to organize a group and get a project done. The features are relatively simple when compared to more sophisticated team management applications. This is actually a benefit for users who only need the basics and prefer to pay less for them rather than subscribing to features they do not need.

  • There’s the guy who outlined his novel on Checkvist. You can share a list and work with other people to compile the tasks – maybe a list of holiday “to dos”. It could be a handy tool for a brainstorming session, especially if the scribe is a wizard with the Checkvist shortcuts.

    I think Checkvist is pretty cool.
