5 Ways the New, Free RACI Template is Better Than Ever

If you are looking for ways to increase accountability and streamline your team’s communication, using RACI responsibility charting will help.

The free RACI Template is one of our most popular resources, and we recently updated and improved it to better serve you.

5 Ways the New, Free RACI Template is Better Than Ever

Here are five ways that this interactive PDF is better than ever:
  1. Save, print, and update: This RACI template is reusable! Once your RACI is complete, you can save and print the pdf chart. To update your project’s RACI chart, you can enter the new information and save it as a new file, or replace the old one.

  2. Streamlined design: A user-friendly design—ready to print on standard letter-sized paper—makes this RACI template a pleasure to use.

  3. Longer notes: Instead of breaking up your thoughts into individual lines of text, now you can write a continuous memo in the notes field.

  4. Brand it: Using Adobe Acrobat, you can replace the RACI Solutions logo in the top left corner with your company’s. For step-by-step instructions on replacing images using Adobe Acrobat, click here.

  5. RACI resources: Help is at hand! If you want more resources for using RACI, click on the RACI Solutions logo in the top left corner of the template.


Bonus tip: Instead of clicking through the chart with your mouse, you can click in any field, then use the “tab” key to move from one field to the next. Doing so will walk you through filling out a RACI chart. Start by entering 1) your project information at the top. Then push “tab” to move through 2) the roles and functions fields, 3) decisions and tasks fields, 4) entering the RACI codes, and finally 5) the notes section.
