Advantages of smart lists for follow up vs task action plans
- Dynamically generated e.g. last contacted more than 3 days ago, so someone you emailed with yesterday won't appear in todays follow up smart list.
- Not overwhelming like a backlog of tasks and quick to work through
- Share lists with team
- More filtering options
- Schedule time in your calendar to go through specific lists
Task action plans are good for when you have a specific set of actions that need to happen e.g. a closing sequence
