Checklists are easy ways to keep track of a schedule or instructions that we have to follow to complete a certain task. Earlier, checklists were generally written by hand into a notebook, but the drawback was that these checklists could be misplaced and as such, the task was left incomplete.

Microsoft Word is an amazing tool that can help you make a professional checklist, which you can use for your personal needs, or even share with friends, family, or even colleagues.
