Emoji Reactions in DropTask

Like it, love it or even hate it? Share your thoughts with Emoji Reactions

When it comes to teamwork, effective communication is key. Emoji Reactions* are a quick and fun way for the whole team to have their say, without really saying anything. Agree with a comment a team member has made? Now you have the ability to give it a ‘thumbs up’ or maybe even a ‘trophy’. With a huge library of familiar emojis, you can react to comments in any way you see fit. Emojis are more than just smiley faces and hearts. They help teams communicate better and enable people to make more personal connections at work. They make our thoughts and feedback more engaging and can even soften the blow of critique. Some team members are quieter than others, and may not give their opinion in words or person. Emoji Reactions are a laid back way to get thoughts from everyone on the team. With a wider range of options inputted into the project, you’re bound to see exciting improvements in end results. Set a more friendly tone in your workplace and let your true company culture shine through with DropTask Emoji Reactions. Change your workplace the tone from stuffy to friendly and help your team members feel good about the message you’re sending out. So what’re you waiting for?

When you and your team are working hard on a project, it’s important to keep motivation high by celebrating even small wins. Now available in DropTask, celebrate Completed Tasks with the all-new Congratulations feature. If you’ve been working on a task with others or assigned a task to a team member, you’ll get a notification when it’s been carried over the final hurdle. Send an instant Congratulations straight through to your hard-working colleagues. By doing this, they’ll be greeted with a feel-good animation which will be sure to motivate them for their next task.

Looking for some end of week motivation? You’ve come to the right place

Well done, you’ve conquered the mid-week hump. Not only is the weekend within touching distance, but Monday has already been long forgotten about. So, how do you remain positive and productive for the final few days of the week? DropTask is on hand to give you a little boost of motivation to help end this week on a productive note and put you in a better position for the following week.

To help you make the most of your Thursday, we’ve noted down our top tips for remaining motivated to get you through to the end of this week.

Do something different

Do something different
Sometimes, when we get stuck in the same routine, our motivation takes a serious hit. The same goes for our work too. Instead of structuring your work in a mundane fashion, use DropTask’s visual and intuitive Canvas to help brighten your workload and make everyday information more enticing . Inject some color into your working day and personalize tasks with Cover Images. Did you know visuals act as a motivational tool? Our brains are more inclined to absorb the information that’s being displayed when they’re used. Plus, even when you switch to block-shaped tasks in the Workflow, Calendar and Urgency Lists views, your Cover Images remain right where you left them. Try it for yourself, and reignite your interest in whatever you’ve got left to do.

Take a break with DropTask

Take a break
It really is that simple. If you’ve hit a slump, take 5 minutes away from your desk to recharge your energy levels. The great thing about taking breaks is that they help restore your productivity. When you work for long periods of time without taking the time to pause, you are more likely to burnout from exhaustion – and that will do nothing for your long-term goals. Grab a coffee, go for a walk outside or catch-up with a colleague. Whatever you need to do to renew your focus, do it! And don’t worry about your work disappearing while you’re away. Before you head off, add a Progress indicator to your task so that when you return, you can pick up exactly where you left off. DropTask keeps all important files, dates and conversations in one secure place, so they can be easily retrieved wherever you are and whenever you need it.

Regain your focus

When our motivation is wavering, we’re more likely to become distracted from our work. We’ve all been there. Jumping between tasks, getting lost in email threads and not really getting anywhere. No matter how busy we feel, in reality, this only makes us less productive. In DropTask, cut through the noise and use Filters to hone in on your priorities. See only the things you need to see and Filter by Urgency Level to see what requires your attention right now.
