UI Copy Change Request Template

If your organization has an application or software product, it’s probably full of copy. Keeping track of that copy is a full-time job in itself, let alone writing it. If you want people across the organization to let you know when they spot copy that needs changing, make this task available to them.

Tips

  • Tools like Asana and Trello let you use automation to make sure new tasks land in a specific section. You can set this up so that a task duplicated from your template automatically get sent to a “Triage” or “New Requests” section
  • If this task needs to exist within a project that encompasses more than just copy requests, you can use tags/labels to mark copy request tasks and distinguish them from others.
