Seeing things go forward sometimes can be just an old-fashioned list of tasks. And being able to see your list of tasks in WordPress will enhance your productivity.
In this article we will show you how to easily create a task list in WordPress.
Why build a task list in WordPress?Task Lists are the ultimate productivity tool. You should use a basic notepad to manage your daily task lists.
However, when you try to stay productive at work, you should look at more advanced and more efficient task list software. This allows you to stay up-to-date and make sure nothing is happening between the net stitches.
For WordPress site owners, task lists may be used to manage an editorial calendar, website design tasks, managing Web site conversions, and almost all other tasks that you want to follow.
We will show you how to create an in WordPress with a plugin, then a more portable approach by using one of our favorite productivity tools that we use in our business.
Ready, let’s go.
Method 1. How to build a task list in WordPress.
For this method, we will use a WordPress plugin to create and manage your task list directly from the WordPress administrative area.
It basically allows you to build an array of Trello type tasks in the WordPress admin.
First of all, you must install and enable the Kanban Boards for WordPress plugin. For more info, check out our guide on how to create a WordPress plugin.
After download, access Kanban’s ‘Tables in your WordPress dashboard and click on the ” Add another array” button to create your new array. You can see that there is a default “Kanban Table.” You need. to click on the “Save your arrays” button before proceeding.
Then you want to visit the Kanban »Page Settings. You will land on the “General” tab immediately. Go ahead and click on the name of the array and select the array you just created.
You have to make sure that you choose “Yes” from the “Display All columns” option to see the whole array on a single screen in the next step. Do not forget to save your settings. Then click on the “Statutes” tab to set the columns of your chart. It is here where you can build up your list of things to do. Since it’s a whole new chart, we’ll create 3 statutes, which show how much you’re when you’re working on a task.
These three statutes will be called “Job,” “On-going,” and “Completed.”
To do so, click on the “Add another status” button, then call it “Task.” Repeat this step twice as often to create the three statutes. Now that you’ve created all your status, click on the “Save Settings” button.
If that is done, it’s time to go to your chart and build your list of things to do. Only click on the “Access your chart” button at the top of your screen. Now you will see your array and it is time to create tasks.
When you pass the mouse on one of the state columns, the blue button appears. Click the “+” to create the first task.
You have two fields to fill.
- Add a project.
- Add a title.
When you click on these fields, you will fill in them. For our example, we created a project called “Speedy Repeats,” then we added blog post titles. Within these Articles, you can set a time limit for their results. Then you can also choose the users to whom you assign the task.
If you have created the task, you will move it in “On-going” and “Finished” columns to mark it as either on-going or finished.
Finally, to get out of your array and come back to your WordPress dashboard, you can click the “settings” button at the bottom of the screen, and then click “Admin.” Kanban for WordPress is a great way to manage task lists in your WordPress management area.
However, if you need more features or do not want to provide team members access to the WordPress administration area, the following method is for you.
Method 2. Build the task list with Asana.
At EduCode and Great Motivation, we use Asana to manage all our tasks. It is the best project management tool that enables you to track your work and to track your progress along the way.
It is more scalable and offers much more features. You will share access to your Asana project with your team without sharing access to your WordPress management area.

Having said that, let’s see how to set up and use Asana to build a task list for your WordPress website. First, go to the Asana website and click the “Try Free” button and submit your email to create your account.
Now check your professional e-mail for a verification connection. You need to click on this link and follow the instructions to complete your account development.
If you’re done this will lead you directly to your instrument panel, which looks like this. Since we are creating a task list for the first time, click the “New Project” button to start. Now click the “Empty Project” button to start creating your task list. Go there and give your project a name. We called our “My Task List” for this example.
Press “Create a Project” and it is now time to add tasks to the list.
To create new tasks, you must follow the instructions by clicking the area that reads “Click here to add a task.” If you need to create more tasks, simply click the “+ Add Task” button at the top of your dashboard.
Here’s what yours can look like after adding a few tasks. When you finish a task and want to tick it as done, just click on the round circle along with a tick.
Adding team members to the project.
Asana allows someone to invite to join the team very easily. Only click the sharing button at the top of a project to allow users to join your team.
You may then include the email addresses of the users that you would like to invite to join your team. You can still exclude them from the team at any time to control the projects they can change. Once these team members have joined you, you can assign them items from your list of tasks on which to work.
Asana is a powerful tool for project management. If you start using it, you’ll be delighted to discover new features such as powerful searching, team management, task management and other integrated tools.
