Do you number tasks/questions?

Last updated by Brady Stroud [SSW] about 1 month ago.See history

It is good practice to be clear on what you want. One way you can make things clearer is to number tasks or questions.

Note: Receiving an email with just numbered items is cold - An email starting with a paragraph of context is much nicer

Bad example - Tasks/questions may be skipped if the reader does not read very carefully

Good example - Tasks/questions are clear

⚠️ Warning - Avoid numbered lists that aren't tasks

Bad example - Confusing! The second list above is unnecessary and obscures the tasks/questions
