How to Plan and Manage Events

Create a Static Project Board

 

Whether it’s a small wedding or a grand award ceremony, a good overview of your tasks is extremely important when it comes to organizing an event. 

We recommend using a static board. With this setup, the sections in your project are used to organize tasks by type rather than to show their status in a workflow. Once you have created your project:

 

  1. Create sections that divide the tasks by type (Marketing, Entertainment, Location etc.)
  2. Create tasks that clearly show the activity to be performed. Use checklists to split larger tasks into smaller to-dos.
  3. Set due dates that show when the task must be completed by. 
  4. Assign tasks to the relevant people for completion.

 

Manage Tags

 

In event management projects, you can use tags to indicate the type of task that will be performed. These are easily visible on the task tiles on the project board. Examples include:

 

  1. Organize: A general description that includes research, communication and making appointments.
  2. Order: Includes all types of purchases.
  3. Meeting: Meetings with both team members and external entities.
  4. Design: All (graphic) design related tasks.
