Avoid information overload with our new-look notification centerIn today’s digital world, the internet has made it possible to source and deliver information in an instant and connect with others from all around the world. However, as soon as you turn on your device and log online you’re bombarded with emails, messages, news, social networks and reminders which can actually have an adverse effect on your productivity.
Too much information – or ‘information overload’ as it’s commonly known – can lead to interruptions, become unmanageable, create confusion and if nothing else, can drive us mad!
That’s why in the new version of DropTask, we’re transforming our notification center so you can effortlessly manage all task-related information and updates – without getting bogged down! Let’s take a closer look…
See what matters most
To ensure no important information is lost amongst the abundance of activity that takes place within DropTask, you’ll only be alerted of key changes or updates to your tasks – such as reminders and comments. By reducing the number of notifications received, you’ll find it easy to take necessary action and respond to changes.
Though some notifications are required and determine next action steps, in many cases you probably don’t need them. So in the new release, notifications for smaller task updates (such as the addition of a subtask or importance flag to a task), will be hidden – reducing distraction and giving you the ability to focus.
Never miss a thing
In our new release, notifications will wait for as long as you need them to – they’ll only disappear once you’ve seen and actioned them. Even after a notification is cleared, it can still be viewed in the ‘Dismissed‘ section of the app at a later time.
