I’m sure you’ll agree that when it comes to collaboration and working with others, communication is key.
A team with various responsibilities, projects, and priorities to handle can be difficult to manage if you’re not always on the same page as each other, and it can be made worse when you throw an increased workload into the mix.
But requesting an update on progress or delegating a new task can be counter productive if your message is lost in a sea of emails, which is why DropTask is a really great tool for driving team effort.
In August 2013, we introduced our new Request Update feature. With its self-explanatory function in mind, we wanted to design it to help you monitor progress on a task that you’re overseeing, and get you one step closer to the finishing post.
We felt that this feature – designed specifically for collaboration – would further improve the way DropTask is already supporting and promoting teamwork, and judging by your feedback, it’s done just that.
Within each project is the option to invite friends, family members, colleagues or acquaintances to share a space with. Whether you’re managing a project, overseeing a team’s effort or simply looking to improve the way you work with others – gaining access to a shared project means you can create unlimited tasks, assign people to them, and even categorise the to-dos by organising them within groups.
Everything in one shared place not only makes it easier for everyone to ask questions, send files, and update progress, but it also allows you and your team keep up to date with deadlines and provides you with the confidence that your day to day schedule is being maintained and managed well.
The overall impact of using DropTask to improve team effort at home, in the work place or within academic institutions has been seen by thousands of people worldwide. We receive a tremendous amount of support and feedback from our users who tell us how DropTask has boosted their productivity, and allowed them to work with others like never before.
So, if you find yourself juggling your workload across various different mediums whilst collaboratively working towards one common goal, try inviting a few people to work with on DropTask. You’ll soon notice how straightforward and manageable teamwork can really be.
