Checklist items are templates for Salesforce Tasks. If you have many small tasks to be performed by a single person, this can be inefficient.
Each item of a Tick-List converted to a Salesforce Task, will allocate about 2k of your Salesforce Storage.
With Micro-Tasks, you can now create tasks within a Salesforce task.
In the Comment, just add a checkbox placeholder: [ ] before the Micro Task:
or directly in the Salesforce Task:
In the Task Manager, you can just click in the checkbox for the Micro-Task.
... or in the Add Checklist component of any record:
You can also manually complete the micro-task by editing the comment and change the [ ] to [x].
When all micro-tasks are completed, the Task is marked as completed too.
For reporting, you can report the Task fields
- Micro-Task Count (= total number)
- Micro-Tasks Open
- Micro-Tasks Closed
