A checklist is an effective tool for keeping track of tasks or items that need to be completed. One of the advantages of creating a checklist on Google Slides is its accessibility and ease of sharing with others. Follow these steps to create your own custom checklist.
Step 1: Create a new slide
The first step is to create a new slide. If you already have a presentation open, you can add a new slide by clicking on Slide from the top menu, then select New Slide.
Step 2: Add a table
In order to create a checklist, you will need to add a table to your slide. Click on Table in the top menu, then select Insert table. For a simple checklist, a two-column table could suffice. The first column is for the check boxes, and the second column is for the tasks.
Step 3: Add checkboxes
To add checkboxes, you need to go to Insert in the top menu, then select Shape. From the drop-down options, select Shapes, and choose the square shape. Drag to draw the square in the first cell of your table. This will serve as your checkbox.
Step 4: Duplicate checkboxes
Once you have one checkbox, you can easily duplicate it for the rest of your checklist. Click on the checkbox, then press CTRL + D or Command + D for Mac users. Drag the duplicated checkbox to the next cell.
Step 5: Add tasks
Click on the cells in the second column to add your tasks. You can customize the text size, font, and color to suit your preferences.
Step 6: Customize your checklist
You can change the color of the checkboxes, adjust the size of the table, and add a title to your checklist. To change the color of the checkboxes, select the checkbox and click on Fill color in the top menu.
That’s it! You now know how to make a simple yet functional checklist in Google Slides. Remember, you can also share this checklist with others by clicking on the Share button at the top right corner of your screen.
