With the holiday season in full swing, many of us will be taking time out to rest up and recharge our batteries after a busy year. So as 2015 draws to a close, it’s the perfect opportunity to reflect on everything that has been accomplished – before looking forward to the year ahead. Here’s a look back at just some of our most memorable moments at DropTask this year…
The DropTask Community
As we looked to find the right tool to engage with our users, we set up the DropTask Yammer Community – providing an engaging and collaborative environment for users and the DropTask team to connect with one another. By strengthening our connection to you – our incredible supporters, we’ve been able to gain valuable insight into your needs as well as deliver the support that you require – resulting in a product that brings great value in managing people’s tasks and lives, as well an invaluable user experience.
2015 saw the release of our plugin for Outlook – making the way emails are managed even easier. The ability to instantly transform emails into actionable tasks ensures that incoming to-dos don’t get lost or forgotten in an ever-increasing inbox.
Hot off the back of this release was the launch of our integration with popular note-taking tool, Evernote. A two-way sync makes it possible to bring notes to life by putting them into action in DropTask, or sending to-dos straight into Evernote to generate ideas and watch work take shape.
Native desktop apps
With DropTask available on the Web, as well as on iOS and Android devices, we were thoroughly excited for the much anticipated launch of our native desktop apps for Mac &Windows. Boasting lightening speed performance and offline capability, the apps give you the complete flexibility to be able to leverage DropTask from your chosen device at any time.
Powerful product enhancements
As part of our mission to continuously deliver value and improve user experience, we also made some small yet powerful enhancements to the app. From the ability to Transfer and Archive Projects, to improved Searching and Filtering functionalities, these small enhancements give even more freedom and flexibility – helping to reduce distractions and bring focus to the areas that need it the most.
How others are using DropTask
From large organizations and schools, to family-run businesses and sole traders, DropTask has been helping users from around the world to manage their to-dos. Amongst the stories we’ve shared, we’ve learnt how sales at Corporate Recognition have increased, working in remote teams has been made easy at HP, and how efficiency and transparency has been inspired at Hudson Architects – all as a result of implementing DropTask into the day-to-day running of the organizations.
Plus, a beautiful evolution…
Throughout the year we’ve been listening to what our users have been saying and as a result, we’ve been making some big changes to the app – including a beautiful new design and strengthened organization and management capabilities. The team were extremely excited to hit the road and head to London for TechCrunch Disrupt (one of the most anticipated tech events of the year), to unveil the upcoming release for the first time. Now, with the beta already under way, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be lifting the lid on our new release early next year. But in the meantime here’s a glimpse at some of the feedback we’ve received….
“First minute’s impression: WOW, both Schedule and Completed Tasks view are functional enhancements.”Jan Dvorak
“Great work guys. I wasn’t sure what you could do to tweak it and make it better. This is more than just a tweak!!! This is a whole new program.”
“Love it!! …Love the fact that one can view it in so many different ways.”
So there you have it, some of our favorite picks from 2015 – and what an amazing year it’s been. A big thank you to all our users for supporting us on our journey. Now, with the doors to 2016 to soon open, we’re excited about what’s in-store, so be sure to check in here and follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ for the latest news, tips and stories.
