It can sometimes be a task in itself thinking about how to tackle a to-do list. Why are we less productive on certain days of the week? Everyone is different. Luckily, DropTask is on hand to ensure every day is a productive one. It will help you to make progress towards your goals, one step at a time. Plus, with brand-new features such as Emoji Reactions, Achievements and Congratulations injecting some fun into your work, it will feel less daunting to complete. See below how DropTask can help you to get the most out of your day.
Be strategic with your inbox
Emails can hinder us from getting stuff done. Whether we’re reading them, replying to them or writing them, how often do you get trapped in your inbox? Think about it, as you spend time writing responses, more emails are going to come your way. Instead of getting sucked into an endless amount of emails, you can create a DropTask Project for those tasks that need your urgent attention. If an email pops into your inbox that requires action, use the Email into DropTask feature. This will transform your emails into actionable to-do’s in your very own DropTask project. Wasting time in your inbox will be a thing of the past. With everything stored in one workspace, you’ll save time jumping back and forth and be able to concentrate on getting the job done.
Lift team spirit
Steve Jobs said “Great things in business are never done by one person; they are done by a team of people.” Teams who encourage one another accomplish great things. Being able to work alone is a must for most job roles. But the ability to be a team player and step up to the plate is a desired quality of any employee. If a team member has gone the extra mile to help you get stuff done, give them a digital high five with the Congratulations feature. With the click of a button, your colleague will be showered with confetti on their DropTask workspace. Pretty cool, right? This show of gratification will let them know that you’re appreciative of their work. This will lift their mood and make them more likely to give you a helping hand next time.
Set deadlines to work towards
Whether you want to achieve a personal goal or complete a project at work, it’s important to set deadlines. Why? Well, when deadlines are assigned to a goal or task, we’re more likely to act upon them. In DropTask, use the Start and Due Dates feature to assign important dates to your task. By doing this, a visual reminder will appear around the task circle. Tasks that have a date assigned to them will automatically be slotted into your Calendar, a great feature if you’re wanting to assess your schedule over the new few weeks or months. And, better yet, when a task falls overdue your set date will turn red. If you were lacking motivation before, you’ll soon be determined to get to work.
