"...This is an excellent program. I'm so glad that I stumbled on to this when researching for task management programs. Very low learning curv, quite flexible, and the price is right. Tried at least 20 other programs, either too complicated, too expensive, or poor documentation..."

Journalist's solution to do list for journalist


All Travel Checklists

Journalists write and edit news, articles, reports, commentaries, briefs and issues for newspapers, magazines and for radio or television. In other words they manage a lot of tasks associated with gathering, processing and interpreting the information about persons and events to create the "product" which can be presented to public. How can journalist handle all these tasks in order to make the "product" on time and according to the media requirements?

To be a good journalist means to be not only a creative person but also an organized person. Journalist should organize his various tasks if he doesn't want to procrastinate them and fail his editor. But what task management methods and tools can be used by a journalist to be professional in his job?

Let's take the typical journalist's to do list:

  • To make exclusive interview with Mr. J. Johnson, CEO of the "Company"
  • Visit the European state leaders summit dedicated to Economic crisis and make a report
  • Make research of the information about the Greenhouse effect within libraries and internet
  • Studying of documents from state organizations about increasing of rates for public utilities
  • Learning documents in archive about soldiers lost in second World War
  • Finalize articles and reports on materials gathered during the week

Task and Time planning

Journalist appoints meetings with interviewees, plans and schedules travels to locations where some interesting events took place in the past or will take place in nearest future, schedules appointments with authorities to obtain accreditation for work in archives and so on. For example making exclusive interview with J. Johnson can be scheduled on certain date, but the date and time need to be confirmed when three days left before this date, so journalist can plan task and set reminder to work when three days left before interview.

Prioritizing journalist's tasks

The specificity of journalist's work means that necessity to prepare some publications can appear suddenly and should be performed very quickly, because news can lose their topicality. Journalist needs to put different priorities for tasks according to time left before due date or to the importance of the publication. For example the publications which are related with political summit can change their priority to urgent at any moment if some loud statements are made.

Categorizing journalist's tasks and performance tracking

Distribution of tasks to different categories according to topics, events, persons, articles etc. is an essential part of proper work organizing, because it will facilitate tracking the progress of job execution within each category. For example journalist can keep tracking on how many sites and articles were learned in the context of the Greenhouse effect study or what arrangements has to be done for exclusive interview.

Notes, contacts, comments, files management within journalist's workflow

The workflow of journalists requires making a big number of notes and comments to tasks. Majority of journalist's tasks are related directly to gathering of information and writing of various publications, so it is obvious that management of text files is an essential part of journalist's profession. Journalist needs the software which can facilitate the management of files (articles, documents and so on), contacts of interviewees, comments, notes etc.
