Re-usable List Templates
For the new Lists feature, it would be good to have the ability to create and save a list template so that a list can be created with the same items again without recreating the list each time from scratch.
Example use: At the beginning of every project a list of preparatory steps or at the end of a project to close it out - sort of like a pilot's checklist before take-off / landing, or during emergency procedure.

How do you use this? Can't see any template features

Much of what I do is repetitive for different clients. So if I have to build a website I would have a daily target of 'Build website'. Then instead of creating sub-tasks each time, I would copy one of my lists into it.

MJ Dec 03 additional comment is perfect..other people's visions of how to get something done, if in a context that gives choice when ready to access other info than one's own course of planning (ie streamlining one's own process, the point of Simpleology at base) would be one of the jewels of this resource. "O yeah! I hadn't seen that, I could get this done much better\quicker\appropriately if I used THAT as a way to do it" will come out of such sharing possibilities.

There are tasks that I repeat often in a week and it would be nice that once completed on any given day, I wouldn't have to enter it again from scratch and just click it to repeat.

An nice possibility for this feature would be to incorporate it with the new "Elite Lists" (http://www.simpleology.com/blog/2011/12/what-people-really-want-for-christmas-and-3-other-sneaky-tricks-you-can-pull-with-lists.html) allowing people to create their own Elite Lists.
Additionally, as well as the ability to publish such Elite Lists to the web, I would like to have the ability to copy other people's Elite Lists directly into my own Simpleology account by just clicking a button on the public page (e.g. "Copy to my Simpleology account"). That would create an easy way for Simpleology users to share their own Elite Lists with each other, and would be a cool community feature.

Great idea. I'm a loan officer and every loan has a progression of steps that must be completed, both for compliance and to ensure proper submission and timely funding. Also, as I court new prospects and business partners there are several steps that I go through for on-boarding. Templates would make both of these extremely time saving and make me be more efficient. this would also allow companies to utilize Simpleology more efficiently and consistently. Great Product guys!!
