This preference setting allows you to set new checklists to be automatically activated on all Projects and Phases or no Projects or Phases. Currently, all newly created checklists are automatically activated on all Projects and Phases. Companies that have a lot of Phases (aka Jobs or Lots) with preset Phase Checklists may find it easier to have checklists activated in no projects and phases, rather than deactivating them where they don't want them.
