BREAKING: Korgi adds a checklist board view AND Google Contacts to cards!

A Welsh Corgi sits on top of a desk in a newsroom with multiple monitors behind it.

Korgiville—We interrupt this programming with double headlines from the To Do Dogs themselves:

Boards now have a checklist view

Checklist cards feature checkboxes to immediately archive and unarchive completed items. They're also more compact to view more cards on your screen. You can still color-code, drag-and-drop, and, of course, use the mighty drawer to launch Google and Microsoft 365 apps straight from your board. Go to Board Settings/Board Type/Checklist to enable checklist view now - you're going to love it! (You can switch any checklist back to "Standard" view in Settings/Board Type, too.)

Call and email Google contacts from your cards

Project management includes calls and emails, so Korgi just added Google Contacts to the card drawer. This is a test feature, so you'll have to grant Korgi a new Google permission the first time you try it. (It's available in Sharing still, too!) In the drawer, select the Contact icon, search for your desired contact, then add them to your card. Select the card icon anytime to view their email (select it to open your default email client) and their phone number (select it if you're on mobile or have enabled web calls in your browser).

Now back to your regular programming.

Who are we kidding - go build some checklists and add some contacts to those cards!

How — and why — to start writing story from the inside out (Step 1)

When you're writing a television pilot, your goal isn't to create a completed script, but to create a complete, and resonant, character. The reader has to know in the first 10 pages how your main character enters a room, what trait they fall back on in daily moments, and what they long for most deeply in their hearts.

What to do (immediately!) when your story's lead character ISN'T your story's protagonist.

Quick! Who was the star of The Office, A Different World and The Big Bang Theory? If you said Steve Carrell, Lisa Bonet and Johnny Galecki, you're right (at least at the beginning of each series). Now, slower: who was the protagonist of those shows? If you said Michael, Denise or Leonard...well, and I think […]

The Single Quote that Changed My Life...and is about to Change Yours.

I spent my 20s jumping on planes to places I didn't tell my parents about until I got there. "Collect call from Taipei" remains my dad's favorite side-eye memory. I had an enormous vision for my life, astonishingly little street sense, and the limitless sense of possibility and agency that is the birthright of youngest […]
