"To Do List" Overview
This Excel To Do List is where all the things you need to get done are organised in one place, taking the worry out of having to remember.
You simply create a To Do List (lets say Travel) add the tasks required to achieve your travel goal, give each a priority and estimated time of effort then use 'Auto-Schedule' to create an automated plan. You can have as many To Do Lists as you need, colour coded to make them easily recognisable.

To create a new To Do List, simply click on the "Add" button and enter the list Name, Description, which days of the week, and number of hours you will work on this To Do List then click "Add List" and the list is ready for tasks to be added.
