They say that ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’. It’s a phrase that bears fruit – particularly in the workplace. Being a successful team is not about personal achievement or competency, but how individuals work together to improve their output. Team communication is the secret to success. With features that support project collaboration, DropTask for Business lets you build relationships and keep everyone on the same page. But why is it so fundamental for teams to communicate well?

Assign Tasks

Collaboration

All good ideas should be shared. That’s why it’s so important to establish and set up supportive environments where ‘no idea is a bad idea’. DropTask allows you to Assign Tasks and share the workload. In doing so, you are welcoming fresh approaches to tasks and promoting a communicative workforce where team collaboration prevails.

Receive App and Email Notifications to keep up to date with your team’s progress so that you know when an assignee has completed a task and is ready to be assigned to a new one. Even if they haven’t finished their task, the Progress Percentage bar gives you insight into how close they are to completion, allowing you to plan ahead. Without having to chase people for progress updates, you can focus on your own work and avoid wasting any unnecessary time.

Comments and Messaging

Cohesiveness

Productivity doesn’t stem from rushing through tasks. To be productive, it’s vital to foster a cohesive working space where strong relationships are prioritized. Office environments tend not to lend themselves to close-knit teams. DropTask’s Comments and Messaging features mean you can keep up to date on tasks, update team members, and most importantly, share positive feedback. It’s surprising how a quick morale boost can spur you on to be more productive.

Building strong relationships is all about trust. To build trust, encourage your team to use Checklists to make their task progression transparent. For larger tasks that need to be broken down into bitesize chunks, Checklists provide the whole team with a useful overview of the task, how it will be approached and how far it is from completion. Because they are visible to everyone on your project, they act as a practical way to produce a connected and united environment.

Project Permissions

Efficiency

A team that communicates well is more efficient as it increases the chances of getting work done quickly and accurately. With that in mind, DropTask’s Team Calendar is a constant form of communication which allows your whole team to see everyone’s workload and stay synchronized through the progression of a project. With all tasks visible on the Team Calendar, it will be crystal clear who’s doing what and when.

Communication is pivotal in creating productive workforces. DropTask allows you to be more communicative and stay connected both verbally and non-verbally. In doing so, you create a productive team environment where no task is too intimidating.
