A well-structured workflow will seriously boost your productivity. It is a breakdown of the processes and tools you need to streamline your work activities. Whether you are managing a large team, planning a group project, or simply looking to organise daily tasks, a workflow showing the steps and tools required will transform chaos to clarity.
iMindMap 10 Ultimate’s Time Map View provides a unique take on the typical workflow diagram. Time Map View will help you keep track of every part of a process by creating a visual snapshot of responsibilities and actions along a vibrant timeline. Here’s how to bring clarity to a busy process using the Time Map View…
One of the most effective ways to create your workflow Time Map is to visualise it as completed, and work backwards to your starting point. Use brightly coloured tasks to represent every step, action, input and output needed to get there. Milestones can be used to group related tasks together, and break your workflow down into short-term, achievable chunks. Task start and due dates ensure every action is completed on time and in a logical order, and task Connectors define the order in which they should be carried out.
For a visual way to divide your workflow, use Time Map View’s colour coded Swimlanes. Alternatively, you can visually categorise your workflow and see who is responsible for what at a glance by adding Icons. Choose from the Icon Library, or import your own. Tags provide a discreet way to categorise your tasks and refine your focus. You can create Tags for anything and everything, including team members, topics, and performance metrics. No matter how large and complex your workflow, a powerful filtering system allows you to filter by Tag or Icon and find what you’re looking for quickly.
The Time Map View’s pop-up Navigation Menu will help you view and navigate between connected items in no time. As you progress through your workflow, keep track of how things are progressing with the Task Status System. Assign a bright, visual indicator to tasks to highlight what ones have been started, put on hold or completed. The Current Time Indicator will help you to manage your progress daily, and save you from falling behind by highlighting any incomplete tasks.
