Good day

I may be doing this completely wrong, but I am trying to learn to write a form of process/workflow/framework. I am using a three-column page format, trying to keep the same section per page where:

  1. left/0 column has a section, subsection, and subsubsection with a continuous numbering scheme.
  2. center/1 column a graphic workflow.
  3. right/2 column has subsection, subsubsection, and items. (here the numbering scheme is not subsequent from "left/0 column")

What could I be missing or doing wrong?

Any help to help me understand what I am doing wrong or what package I should look into to figure out my mistake will be appreciated.

Thank you.

\subsection{Quick Change Task Overview}
\item Task is created from a closed ETSR
\item Alternatively, Standards team members can submit a request.
\item Also automatically created as part of a Project if the “Create Quick Change” checkbox is checked when creating development tasks during Planning.
\item Status = Submitted.
\item Standards Manager sets Assigned To, approver, and publisher, as well as other assignment details.
\item RTL is responsible for defining assignment details for quick-change tasks that are part of a project.
\item Status changes to assigned
\item Alternatively, standards manager can close right away
\item Assigned to drafts the deliverables to meet the scope of the request.
\item Assigned to resolves the quick-change tasks and adds resolution details
\item If development, status changes to under review
\item Other resolution options include moved to dashboard, deferred, duplicate, not accepted, and no longer needed; status changes to closed.
\item The quick-change tasks process does not include a peer review.
\item If approval is required (decided by standards manager during assignment), the approver reviews the quick-change task and adds approval details.
\item If not approved, quick-change task is assigned to, status changed to assigned, and the process repeats.
\item If approved, status changes to awaiting publishing.
\item Publisher moves the completed deliverables to the appropriate publication location and adds publishing details.
\item Status changes to published.
