How creations work
Welcome to the section that will have you put all the knowledge from your lessons into action! Working on the creation—with your team, too—will pay off in the form of a complete, actionable document that can be put to use, or sent across to your partners.

You unlock creations in a module once you finish off the lessons and the recap section. Head back to the module overview page, click on start creating, and get to work on the state-of-the-art markdown editing space.

Tasks have been designed by worldwide industry experts to not just help put your knowledge to the test, but to also put your startup's plans into action. Each task is designed to be either test-based, database-centric, or Kanbad Board style. All tasks can be accomplished—with your team—within Sketchnote's editor itself. Assign tasks to your colleagues or to yourself, and mark it as done by checking off the box in the beginning of the task.

Our full-loaded markdown editor comes with 10+ block content types that you can use to enhance the formatting and styling of your content. From text blocks, to tables, image pasting, and embeds—get working on your tasks, hassle free! Also find support to add emojis to your editor, and use quick-search custom tags to brand your content and look for it easier. Read more about the various types of weapons available to you here.
Tip: You can either choose a weapon from the explore menu on the right-hand corner, or bring it up quickly by typing "/" in the workspace.

Default tasks not enough? Add your own tasks to the creation page by bringing up the menu and choosing the Task option. You can turn anything into a task checklist using the option.
Tip: When you add more tasks, the count on the progress bar on the bottom of the screen increases too.

The explore menu is packed with all the tools you may need while working on your creations. These are:
  • Restore tasks: Want to restart your creation with a clean slate? Or just want an old task you deleted back? Choose the Restore task option to put back one or all original tasks in place.
  • Refer lessons: Unsure of what a particular task needs of you? Or need a refresher on certain terms? The Refer lessons option quickly lets you go through the lesson cards, and check out what you learnt.
  • Tags: Use this feature to catalog certain creations under one, custom category visible to just you and your colleagues. Use the tag feature to classify a particular creation under #SeriesA, #marketing, #growth... the sky's the limit!
  • Recommended modules: Quickly find a new module to work on, and a relevant lesson to learn based on the current tasks you're finishing. The recommended modules tab will let you see new modules at a glance, and save them to your list for later.
  • Markdown tools: Find the relevant weapon for your creation from the list, and get to creating your perfect document. Read more about the tools and their functions here. Tip: Use the "/" command within the editor to find a tool faster.
  • Search: Use the quick search function to find relevant results from within the current creation.

The default view of a creation is in the docs mode—here's where you see the task, the content, and jot your thoughts down. However, you can switch the view to Kanban and calendar to quickly keep a tab on your progress, assign tasks to yourselves or your colleagues, and put start and end dates to it.
  • Kanban view: Assign tasks to your team. Drag and drop tasks in columns indicating the progress.
  • Calendar view: Quickly add dates to the start and end of a particular task, and instantly find what's due when.

Once you've ticked off all tasks from your list and your file is ready, you can add it to your docs for faster access. Carry it anywhere and access it from the cloud at your convenience. Read more about docs and storage here.

More often than not, you may need to share your documents with clients, vendors, or freelancers not on the platform. Use the export option to generate a PDF document of your Sketchnote doc, and send it away.

Easily revert to a previous version of your current document with the version history tool. Find it on the top right of your screen and click the time stamp to bring up available versions. Click on any one you wish to work on, and bring it back to your editor.

Quickly find the names of team members who created and shared the document you're currently working on by taking a peek at the top left corner of the screen.
