How full-stack marketer, Gerald Froehlich, created a simple and seamless workflow

Case Study GF Having worked in marketing for over 25 years, Gerald Froehlich was in search of a tool that could combine all of the different aspects of his work into one task management system. After trying out multiple project management and tasking tools during his lengthy career, Gerald’s approach was different to others in his sector. Searching for a tool that offered creativity, visualization, integration and a seamless flow, Gerald was relieved when he came across DropTask, as he had found an app that worked exactly in the way that he wanted it to.

‘As a Full-Stack Marketer and the Director of Froehlich Kreatives Marketing, I advise, accompany, and inspire entrepreneurs in marketing and communications. Having stood by essential keywords in marketing throughout the duration of my career, e.g. ‘understandable’, ‘ordered’ and ‘well structured’, I’d been unable to translate this method of planning into any task management tool that I’d come across. Even back in the mid-90’s when I first began transferring all of my project management approaches onto the computer (and I think you’ll agree, those times were tough), I always wanted my tasks to be displayed and managed in an intuitive and engaging way. And after trialing almost every task management tool on the market, my hopes of finding a tool that worked the way my mind did was slim, but I didn’t give up – and I’m so glad I didn’t. After a long road I came across DropTask, which provided me with a creative space and a clear way of managing key information in a way that worked for me.

‘I gained a seamless workflow experience’


I use DropTask in a very simple way, as it’s so easy to use from the beginning right through until the project’s completion. As DropTask is used solely for my work needs, I’ve been able to say goodbye to wasteful hours spent buried in my inbox because I can manage all of my incoming and outgoing work in DropTask for Business. I do this by using the Emailing Tasks In feature (a really handy one if you’re constantly on the go). No matter where I am, whether that be on the bus, in the office, or at home, I can transport all of my emails into my DropTask account, and this is where they’ll turn into actionable tasks. When I then return to my DropTask, a Notification is there reminding me of the project that I transported my email into.

DropTask-aficionado

I can do this whenever and wherever I am, via the iPad, iPhone and Desktop apps, as I know that my DropTask will automatically update while alternating between all of these devices. My usual routine is managing and sorting my tasks on the iPhone app, and when I return to the office I control the finer details such as Status, Progress and Due Dates, on my desktop computer.

DropTask-aficionado

‘I’m proud to say I’m a DropTask aficionado’

I can fluently use DropTask while balancing countless errands, and I’ve found that one of the most useful features to help me is the Evernote Integration that comes with the Business account. This integration allows a highly powerful two-way sync that let’s me syncronize my notes made in Evernote into any of my DropTask projects. In practice, I use Evernote to take notes during meetings with my clients, and then sync with DropTask to view my workload and to reschedule any conflicting dates. The advantage DropTask has in favor of other tools is that it allows you to dive deeper into the tasks that are first displayed on the Canvas. Whether that be by syncing back to Evernote, opening Files, or ticking off Checklist items – I have all of my necessary items in one place, without the stress of managing huge amounts of data.

‘The UI is pretty unbeatable’

As I am currently self-employed, I use DropTask to help plan and manage my workload, depending on my client’s personal needs. Even though I’m using DropTask for a single user purpose, I can see teams benefiting from the collaborative features available. With that being said, I do use DropTask for meetings with clients e.g. when screen-sharing. Whenever I bring up DropTask on an interactive screen, the audience are impressed by its truly stunning interface and way of turning mundane tasks into a visual masterpiece. It’s a fantastic way to present a crisp and clear visualization of the status of a project, and really is an excellent tool that makes visualizing task organization a stimulating and enjoyable experience.

Bring life to your notes and get things done like never before with DropTask and Evernote!

Note taking has long been a part of our history, leveraged to capture historic events and to support us in scientific discoveries.  Taking notes is key to getting ideas and thoughts out of your mind and onto some material that will allow you to both clear your mind, and retain the thoughts and ideas for a later date. Most of us will have experienced that moment in time where you have an amazing idea or thought, but you know all too well that if you do not capture it quickly it will escape you possibly forever.  Have you ever found yourself panic stricken by the pure thought of losing that idea in the moment?

Well I know I have, that’s why I leverage DropTask to capture those ideas and put them someplace I know I will not forget to revisit and expand on when the time presents itself. With DropTask’s visual interface it allows for creative thoughts to develop in a fun and exciting way.  Having the DropTask app on my cell phone, which is almost always with me, is a way to capture my thoughts and ideas and set them aside for rediscovery when I have more time to expand on them.  Visually capturing my ideas and thoughts has never been more energizing and productive.

If I were to ask an audience of note takers what tool they utilized to take notes and capture their ideas, they would surely respond with many different answers.  Some might say they keep a traditional note pad and pencil on their nightstand, whereas others may use the voice recorder on their cell phone, or send a text to themselves so they don’t forget. It is likely some will even use the whiteboard in their office, but many would say they use a tool such as Evernote.

At DropTask we know how important it is to our users to be comfortable and effective in capturing information in your preferred tools. So, today we are announcing an exciting new integration with Evernote. Our integration with Evernote feature is currently being beta tested by some of our DropTask PRO users and will be publicly launched over the coming weeks.

en to dtHaving the ability to capture notes and to track actionable next steps within your preferred note taking tool is essential for getting things done. Whether you’re in a meeting taking notes or you simply have an interesting thought during a note taking session, you want to be able to push your tasks to one central place.  You want a workspace where you can easily monitor and manage next steps, and even delegate tasks to a team member if a little help is required.  Now, with the integration between DropTask and Evernote you can do just that.  Through our seamless integration with Evernote you can see your notes come alive and put them to action by sending them straight to DropTask’s visual and intuitive workspace, where you can manage your tasks and get things done.results

Remember, a great idea is just a great idea unless you share it with others and execute on it.  That’s why sending your notes to DropTask is the perfect solution to bringing your thoughts to life and watching your amazing ideas become reality, for both individuals and teams. What’s more, with a two-way integration, if you’ve started work on a task, but later decide you need to do a little more planning, you can gather your thoughts by viewing your task in Evernote – before sending it back to DropTask to continue making progress.

The integration between DropTask and Evernote, is just one of many new and exciting features our team is delivering to users over the coming months. If you have your own story on note taking or using DropTask to capture those all-important ideas, then share them with me in the comments below.

All the best
