3 cognitive biases that make Checklists so effective
Bias towards completion
Checklists let users see their path to completion.
Bias towards reward
Completing each item gives users a hit of dopamine to the brain.
Bias towards consistency
Checklists consistently inspire users to take another step towards their goals.
I am very often asked by people what onboarding design patterns I recommend, and there are very very few where I’m just like, “Total silver bullet, across the board, you can’t go wrong with—tooltip tours or whatever.” But this sort of design pattern is one that I do usually recommend in a vacuum. I’m a big believer in it.

The Appcues checklist was easy to set up and has been instrumental in helping us educate and guide our customers during the account setup process.

Checklist is going to help us address our number one issue for new users, they don't know where to start. Now they have a step-by-step guide that makes it simple to know what to do, where to go, and how to get it done. The checklist in combination with flows and hotspots is going to make it easy and enjoyable to get started with our software.
