Activity Plans

This can save you time planning projects, reduce busy work, and help avoid mistakes.

Example: Interview process

Imagine you're hiring someone new. There might be several interview rounds.  

An Activity Plan can help you organize all these steps into one template. 

This way, you can easily see what needs to happen at each stage of the interview process, making it run smoother for everyone.

The "Activity Plans" window shows a list of all your custom templates (if you're using this feature).
