Task List Templates in Service Delivery

We will use the QuickBooks’ “Sample Larry’s Landscape & Garden Supply” to illustrate setting up a SharePoint Task template to ensure service delivery consistency and quality.  Using multiple posts, we will use this template from bidding through to job/project completion.

Let’s assume that Larry’s provides irrigation planning and installation services. The scope, elapsed time, and pricing for each project is going to vary due to differences in a client’s lot characteristics.  So Larry’s has set up a standard set of tasks using a SharePoint’s Task List for bidding and undertaking such projects.  This list is on the Larry’s SharePoint Service & Delivery subsite underneath the main site.

A screen shot of the 8 steps that make up the irrigation planning phase for such a project is shown below.  There are 4 columns:

  1. Task #
  2. Title
  3. Task Description
  4. Predecessor Tasks.

This is the standard irrigation task list that we will use in subsequent posts.
