DropTask | From visualizing processes to presenting; DropTask is more than just a task management tool for Product Manager, Dieter Karrer.

Dieter Karrer has been part of the team at Swiss technical security company, Securiton, for over 13 years. With roles spanning from Head of Development, to his current position as Product Manager, Dieter was in need of a solution to help manage his daily to-dos and projects.

Dieter Karrer - Project Manager at Securiton“Before discovering DropTask, I would keep track of all of my notes and to-dos by drawing sketches. To replace this method, I was seeking a graphical solution which would help organize my to-dos, projects and notices. After spending quite some time researching many different tools and solutions, I stumbled across DropTask in an article online about helpful tools for productivity. My first impressions of the app was that I loved the graphical interface. As my previous method of organization was very graphical, the unique visuals of DropTask were the key selling point for me; DropTask is predestined for me.

“My first impressions of the app was that I loved the graphical interface.”

DropTask is used for my own personal organization and management, and together with my email client, it is the most important tool that I work with. I use it as a type of ticket tool, where I create new task circles for all of my daily to-dos.

“…together with my email client, it is the most important tool that I work with.”

I have found DropTask very easy and intuitive to use, and I love the fact I am able to get a dynamic graphical overview of my work. The ability to add attributes such as importance, effort and status to a task, provides a clear structure of what should be actioned next. I am even able to personalize my work by using my own pictures as visualizations on tasks.

In addition to managing daily to-dos, or a particular project or study that I may be working on, I also use the app to brainstorm ideas and envisage processes. I once had to consider the different processes in a service organization and therefore I used DropTask to clearly visualize each step and action item that needed to be taken. I have even used the app to present information to others – the audience were delighted with the appealing, colorful design and visual display of information.

“…one of the big advantages of using DropTask is its availability across the web and other platforms, such as iOS.”

Of course it is always more efficient to use only one tool for managing numerous tasks, and therefore one of the big advantages of using DropTask is its availability across the web and other platforms, such as iOS. I’m able to access my projects through several browsers and on my tablet as well, with no restrictions.

Although at the moment I am using DropTask for personal management, I hope to use it with my colleagues soon, and I am excited to make full use of the collaboration features within the app.”
