Automate Your Tasks On Sketchnote

August 18, 2023

Have you been spending a lot of time doing the same actions over and over every day? Do you too—like most of us—forget to start your task timer and stop it when you're working on a task?

If yes, you're going to LOVE this week's update!

Introducing, automations on Sketchnote boards, an attempt to increase your team's productivity by leaps and bounds. Let's dive in and tell you all about it:

Automate your tasks, easily

Two of the most amazing automations we've added to Sketchnote boards this week involve subtask creation and timers. Here's what they do:

  • Subtask magic: Sick of manually adding the same subtasks over and over again? We hear you! Our subtask automation feature allows you to automatically create specific subtasks whenever a task is created. Whether it's a series of steps, checklists, or any other subtask, add it without having to lift a finger!

  • Effortless and accurate time tracking: We get it, life happens. Sometimes you forget to start your timer correctly or forget to hit stop on it. With our new timer automation feature, you won't have to. When you now move a task between columns, you can set up an automation to start the timer. Or stop it! Just get to work on your tasks now, instead.

Setting up automations on your Sketchnote Kanban board is very simple. Look for the button on the top right of your screen that says Automation. Select from the available automation options and configure them to your liking. Once you're satisfied with your settings, hit Create automation and watch the magic unfold!

Bug fix: Pinning and unpinning of files

For a small number of Sketchnote users, pinning and unpinning files was a tad glitchy. We've fixed it! Now when you pin and unpin files, they'll stay that way. Never lose track of another file again!
