DropTask | Got deadlines? We’ve got it covered
When we plan to meet deadlines we imagine the best-case scenario; involving no hiccups or bumps along the way. But the reality is, deadlines often get missed and before you know it, you’re already two steps behind on next week’s work. At DropTask, we want to eliminate the risk of missing important deadlines. We’ve made note of just some of the ways that DropTask can help you to plan, manage and achieve anything that you put your mind to. Don’t believe us? See for yourself below. Plan thoroughly Imagine this. You’ve just arrived at work and before you’ve even had a chance to sit down, your manager has unexpectedly thrown you a bundle of urgent deadlines to meet. Already juggling your current workload, the thought of adding more tasks into the mix, seems almost impossible. First things first – don’t panic. We suggest making each deadline a task in DropTask to make getting your head around your impending work that little bit easier. And the best thing about tasks? Creating them is simple. Now you’ve made a visual note of everything you need to do, the next stage is making each task more desirable to tackle. Next up are Checklists: Ready to break it down? Learn more about Checklists here. Manage accordingly So now that you’ve jotted down your action steps for the coming weeks, it’s time to cement those deadlines in place. We suggest selecting a date before the actual deadline is due. Confused? Don’t worry, we’re here to give you the low-down. Welcome to ‘self-imposed deadlines‘. If you’re unfamiliar with this method, self-imposed deadlines simply encourage you to work harder. By setting them days or even weeks before a deadline is due, you’ll give yourself extra time to perfect those finishing touches. Set and manage these deadlines by assigning Due Dates to tasks. Once Due Dates have been set in place they’ll automatically be slotted into the built-in Calendar, carefully displaying your schedule for the coming weeks and months ahead, helping you to remain on track to meet all of those deadlines. (Top tip: Want to rearrange a date? Simply drag and drop your task into its new date and let DropTask rejig your schedule accordingly.) Achieve consistently Last, but certainly not least, is achieve. You’ve planned your steps and created a personal Calendar, now all that’s left is to meet those deadlines. From the very start of creating your tasks, to sliding the Progress bar to 100% complete; DropTask is there to help you work more efficiently towards reaching that end goal. With its unique capabilities helping to boost performance and maximize your potential, you’ll never miss a deadline again. Now, you’ll be able to keep track of everything (including the important details) all in one, organized workspace. Never miss a deadline again with DropTask. Sign up today – it’s free.
