The days where we would spend hours pondering the simple choice of using a pad of sticky notes or notepad are long gone. Now we’re spoiled for choice with task management apps offering us more than a pen and paper ever could. If you’re wondering what the fuss is all about with task management apps and how you may benefit from using one, then we’re here to give you the low down.
Task management apps help us to stay organized, work efficiently, hit deadlines and communicate with others. But why is 2018 the year to start using a task management app? Read on to discover how a tool like DropTask will help you to achieve a better work-life balance and hit your goals in 2018.
Plus, find out below why this year will be especially exciting for this task management tool…
Balance your work-life
Life can get hectic. If you’re struggling to achieve a healthy work-life balance, you’re not alone. To-do lists may start out effective, but can quickly become messy and outdated. It’s difficult to pool together every priority, from both work and home, without feeling overwhelmed. DropTask makes all of that stuff easy. With features such as a built-in Calendar, DropTask helps you balance all the things that are important to what you do and achieve.
DropTask gives you the option to create an unlimited amount of projects. For example, create a project called ‘Groceries,’ ‘KPI Report’ or even ‘Toby’s Schoolwork’. You can create a project for anything. DropTask’s workspace is infinite, which means no matter how many to-dos you’re currently juggling, they will always have a home.
Assessing priorities helps to identify where your time is best spent. By assigning deadlines to each of your tasks, they’ll automatically schedule in your calendar. Task management tools help us to prioritize and focus on what’s important. And, when the majority of us are trying to work full time, build a social life and work on our goals, we could all do with an app that enhances our organization.
Keep up to date – wherever you are
With more and more organizations allowing their teams to work remotely, it’s more important than ever to stay connected. Task management apps are ideal for remote workers. If you’re a remote worker, you’ll know that it’s not always laptop-on-deck chair type of working, you’ll know that maintaining communication is key. It takes a lot of planning for a remote team to work effectively together, and a task management app like DropTask can help.
DropTask streamlines team communication, ensuring you’re always in the loop and still feel a part of the office wherever you are. In the app, you’re able to Comment and Message team members, so there’s no need to worry about missing out on important information. Instant notifications within the app inform you of any new updates that have been made within any team project.
With remote working on the rise, it’s a fact that the way that teams are working together is dramatically changing. With advancements in technology allowing us to stay connected 24/7, we’re able to respond, like, share or comment from our chosen location. The same goes for projects in DropTask. With online and offline capabilities, you’re able to update the progress of shared projects with the tap of a button. Even when a project crosses the finish line, you’ll be able to share a sense of team accomplishment in knowing that you helped get the project across the finish line, together.
Track your goals
According to studies, 92% of people who set goals in the new year never actually achieve them. This shocking statistic proves now more than ever we need task management apps to help us track, manage and achieve our goals. That’s where DropTask comes in. DropTask provides you with a clean slate where you can jot down your goals and achieve them. Writing down your goals is important. Why? It motivates you to take action and enables you to see what you need to work towards.
By defining steps you need to take, you’ll be able to reach your goals at a faster pace. Assign yourself to your goal in DropTask by dragging and dropping your picture onto the vibrant circle. Once you’re assigned to it, it’s time to take action. When you get to work, slide the Progress Bar along to show you’re on the road to completion. This will give you a boost of motivation to keep on moving forward. A quick check of your DropTask Canvas will give you a clear overview of your progress and next steps, keeping you on track to achieve this year’s goals.
For us, 2018 is going to be an exciting year. Over the years, we’ve gained incredible insight into the way teams and individuals work all around the world. We know that the modern workplace is changing and we are ready to evolve with it. We’re looking forward to an exciting year of new feature releases that will help you work smarter than ever, wherever you are and whatever you do. We know you’re going to love them.
