From recruitment to the monthly school newsletter, for HR Specialist Jeffrey Loosli, DropTask manages it all…

school-blog-headerJeffrey Loosli is a Human Resources Specialist for the Blaine County School District #61. With over 500 full-time employees and an additional 300 part-time volunteers and coaches, trying to keep track of everything that needs to be completed – from the recruitment process to the monthly payroll, is a huge undertaking.

loosli-head“Before we discovered DropTask, things were often missed or dropped because one person did not communicate what needed to be done with others. We therefore required a tool that would allow us to organize tasks and thoughts and share these with one another to keep everyone in the department working from the same page – so nothing was missed.

We considered some of the other top apps and read the reviews before coming back with two potentials to use – DropTask being one of them. After trialing the free version of DropTask with my colleagues, we instantly fell in love and purchased DropTask PRO for our department.school-ext

We now use DropTask to keep track of all of the daily and monthly tasks we need to get done. For example, we have a project called ‘Newsletter’ and we create a task for each topic that will feature in the newsletter on a specified month of the year.

“After trialing the free version of DropTask with my colleagues, we instantly fell in love…”

We also use the daily summary email DropTask sends out and each morning we are reminded of what tasks we need to work on next, and what’s coming up on the horizon – meaning no tasks are forgotten.

“We now use DropTask to keep track of all of the daily and monthly tasks we need to get done.”

Using DropTask, we have successfully managed and completed the hiring process of 8 new coaches for the school. I effortlessly invited all of the colleagues from my department to the project, where I had created every task that needed to be completed and the deadlines for each one. Using drag and drop, I was able to delegate tasks to team members, and with the ability to add subtasks, it meant all aspects of a task were covered – from signing the contracts for the new coaches to printing the contracts out. I even took a day off, and with DropTask’s real-time collaboration, everyone in the department was able to see what had been done and what still had to be done, so there were no hold-ups in progressing with the project.

DropTask has allowed us to manage things that were normally done on paper (that often got lost in the shuffle), or tasks that were left in limbo because the employee took the day off. Now we can see the progress and know exactly what needs to get done.

“DropTask is leaps and bounds above a simple to-do list that has colors on it.”

My team really enjoy using DropTask and are constantly amazed at what new ideas the DropTask team are coming up with. I have downloaded the app on my smart phone so I can continually monitor, change, and add to tasks even when I’m out of the office. DropTask works great in all types of situations and I even use it for personal items at home – from paying monthly bills, to changing furnaces filters and even watering the plants.

We simply love the visuals of DropTask because you can instantly see where things are in relation to each other. It’s so easy to group common things together, and it allows you to follow the same process each time. When trying to organize and manage tasks, DropTask is leaps and bounds above a simple to-do list that has colors on it.”

Engage your team and bring value to your work through the power of visuals

boost-header

Have you ever felt that sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in a day to get things done? Do you feel the pressure as deadlines approach?boost-img1

Whether we’re completing tasks in the office, fulfilling responsibilities at home or even planning a vacation, without a clear method of planning and tracking tasks, time can easily go to waste. That’s why many of us turn to task management apps which allow us to manage our workloads effectively from creation through to completion.


Seeing is Believing 

boost-img2

Here at DropTask, we’re doing things differently and have taken a unique approach to task management. We’ve moved away from the traditional linear and non-creative displays, and have transformed a simple list into a colorful, shapely dashboard that lets you visually categorize your tasks, designate priorities, and collaborate with your team. But we’re more than just a pretty face; DropTask combines powerful task management features with the benefits of visual thinking to give meaning and purpose to your work. Here are just some of the benefits of using visuals with respect to task management…

boost-img_b_1-4

1. Visuals make for easy processing

Our brain finds it much easier to process visuals than it does large amounts of text-based information. Words are based on a symbol system which must be decoded before they can be interpreted. Visuals on the other hand, require virtually no effort to process, meaning with just a glance we can quickly establish what needs to be done.

2. Images attract and engage

Too much text can very quickly overload our cognitive capacity, and when this happens information is likely to be lost and our productivity will go down the drain. Visual displays lessen the load; they are more concise, clear and interesting – which is just what we need to keep us fully focused on our to-dos.

3. We remember what we see

Our ability to remember images is far better than our memory for words. Unlike words, which are processed by our short-term memory, images are directed through our long-term memory and so become deeply etched – making our plans and action items unforgettable.

4. Color pumps up productivity

Color is exciting and stirs up a response in us. It alters the level of alpha brain wave activity, which triggers human alertness – just the trick for getting us fired up to tackle our tasks!


We know that there’s no single means of perfecting organization and productivity, but there’s undeniably a strong argument to suggest that a visual approach to task management has the edge over the traditional to-do list, spreadsheet or linear drop-down menu because of the power to convey, conceptualize, and communicate meaning in literally a flash.

Go beyond the traditional to-do list, and ‘see’ things get done when you sign up to DropTask for free today.

Marketing consultant Chris Coney has only one app open all day, and it isn’t email…

Chris Coney

Having been in business for almost 10 years, Chris Coney is a UK based Marketing Consultant who helps and advises other businesses to maximize the lifetime value of their customers by implementing a variety of marketing and sales techniques.  Passionate about delivering great value to his clients, Chris explains how he uses the best technology to create the most leverage in his productivity and efficiency.

“I’ve been using the iMindMap software from ThinkBuzan for many years, and discovered DropTask when ThinkBuzan invited me to join it during its launch. I’ve been using DropTask ever since. I was primed for this since I’ve switched from one project management system to another over the years but never felt they worked the way I worked. I always felt I was having to adapt my natural work style to fit the software, and that created extra friction in my day that I really would rather be without.”

 “Most importantly for me there was no learning curve with DropTask.”Chris Coney Marketing Consultant

“The brain’s ability to process information visually outweighs the other senses massively, and I have verified this in my own experience. For me, I need to be able to display, understand, process and retrieve as much information as possible from one screen, without clicking through lots of tabs etc.

Because project management is such a business-critical task, a 1% improvement in effectiveness is multiplied many-fold. Not an hour goes by that I don’t refer to DropTask, and it remembers everything for me so I don’t have to work in a stressful state.

I use DropTask exclusively for work in my business. I have it open almost every moment I’m working and don’t even do this with my email anymore because it hinders my productivity. I also have it open during client meetings so that I can immediately create tasks as they crop up. This eliminates the need to take notes and spend valuable time picking out the action points later on.” 

Chris Coney with DropTask

“Having DropTask open all the time boosts my productivity.”

“One thing that Brian Tracy said – which I felt was so powerful, was that we need to stop asking “How can I catch up?” because no matter how much we get done, no matter how small our ‘to-do’ list gets, the next day it gets refilled. He said that we need to change the question to “Since I can only do a few things, what are the few things I can do that will make the most difference?” so what he’s ultimately talking about is priority. 

DropTask ultimately accomplishes what I mentioned about having one screen I can look at to see both the big picture and the detail, without clicking on anything. It’s incredible really.

I love cloud software because it minimizes risk of data loss and enables my virtual office. To that end I use Google Apps for Business to create word processor documents, spreadsheets, presentations etc. – all that run from my web browser. With DropTask I am able to link specific documents to specific tasks, open them from within DropTask in one click, and begin editing in seconds.”

DropTask and Google

 “…it feels like one big seamless flow”

“For me, DropTask’s integration with Google Drive is better than attaching a file because my Google documents are in the cloud and can be worked on by multiple people simultaneously. That means no downloading the file, editing it, and then uploading the latest version while wondering whether someone else has made a change in the meantime and thus created a version conflict.

The linking of cloud documents doesn’t stop there. Because I use Google Mail, each email message has its own URL and I often paste this URL into the task comment section as a mini audit trail for myself. And finally, because Google Apps integrates with other third party cloud applications, I am also able to link to my cloud based flow charts and website maps in DropTask via the Google Apps integration. This really blurs the lines between applications, as I feel less and less like I’m using multiple software systems, and instead it feels like one big seamless flow.

I’ve been in business for myself for almost 10 years now, and I’ve never worked for anyone as an employee. I don’t want a big business with huge offices and lots of staff to manage, I just want the big revenues that come from providing massive value to my clients. The only way to do that without the big business is to use the best technology to create the most leverage in my productivity, efficiency and effectiveness, and DropTask is my technology of choice. 

If someone reads this and they relate to anything I’ve said above, then they know they need to give DropTask a chance.”

How the award-winning architectural practice, Hudson Architects, replaced to-do lists and note-taking with DropTask to inspire efficiency and transparency throughout the business.

Hudson Architects Team

The Hudson Architects Team

Philip Durban is the Director of Technology at Hudson Architects; a twenty-person award-winning architectural practice designing contemporary buildings throughout the UK and worldwide. Since signing up in the summer of 2013, DropTask has not only improved the day to day internal running of the business, but has added a level of enthusiasm and engagement amongst staff exceeding anything he could have ever hoped for…

 “In 2012 we found ourselves overwhelmed with new projects at the tail-end of the recession. It was in this context that we became frustrated with our old-task management system where every employee was keeping a manual “to-do” list in an effectively private notebook.

Until 2 years ago, our normal business practice was to have a full team meeting every Monday where we would go round the room allowing each person to announce what they needed to do most urgently. We would then try to assimilate this information – and within the same meeting, find the best way to achieve and resource the task. It wasn’t the most perfect way of doing things at all, and tended to be knee-jerk reactive rather than properly planned.

“Every employee was keeping a manual “to-do” list in an effectively private notebook…We would go round the room allowing each person to announce what they needed to do most urgently”

We realized we needed a tool that would make task management more transparent, auditable and accessible to all. But being architects we’re slightly obtuse, and we instinctively respond better to very visual organizational tools – rather than just very long lists!

We scoured Google for a system that would work well for our needs and in the process we tried out quite a few fairly conventional systems across the world, most of which left us very unconvinced. However, as Director of Technology, I then stumbled across something called DropTask and it instantly “rocked my boat” from a visual point of view. It seemed to have startlingly good reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. Soon afterwards, we projected DropTask onto our meeting room wall and demonstrated it to everyone in the company. DropTask’s visual style not only made it very easy to explain to everyone how it worked and why we should have it, but it also made all our staff enthusiastic to start entering their own projects.

So for the last 2 years we’ve had a principle that if anything is being done in the company it needs to show up somewhere in a DropTask project. We divide our projects into fee-earning projects and overhead projects. Our overhead projects will be the same as everyone else’s (office management, PR, etc), but our fee-earning projects are all about designing buildings, large and small. DropTask has the flexibility to allow a project to be completely unique, or based on a well-refined template – but most of our projects are pretty much one-off. Having said that, we have fairly clear internal protocols for which DropTask “groups” will be used in building projects, although we’ve also found that these groups need to be dynamic over the course of a multi-year building contract. DropTask offers exactly that flexibility.

“…for the last 2 years we’ve had a principle that if anything is being done in the company, it needs to show up somewhere in a DropTask project.”

But apart from DropTask’s intuitive visual strengths, there are other essential features which make it very powerful, including the ability to very easily allocate a fully defined task to any person inside or outside of the organization.  As well as internal task delegation, we now require our IT contractor to respond to and update all our IT requests using DropTask. DropTask also makes it very easy to maintain a comprehensive audit trail for every event within the life of a task, and this audit trail semi-automatically tells us who did what, and when they did it.

DropTask has been powerful enough to inspire subtly new ways of working and has given us an intelligent overview of the totality of our workload – when that was otherwise very difficult to achieve!”

From team collaboration to sales acquisition: how DropTask made an impact for Kate Harthan

Kate Harthan works at a promotional products company specializing in personalized items for businesses, corporate awards and uniform programs with customers all over the United States. With general office management responsibilities and duties in marketing, before signing up to DropTask Kate found the lifecycle management of incoming projects to be challenging – especially when priorities were ever changing. For Kate, the use of spreadsheets to manage projects was insufficient as it lacked the ability for all users to edit it at once, and with employees having to keep track of smaller tasks on their own notepads and valuable time being spent ‘catching up’ in weekly office meetings, Kate’s company needed an alternative.

We needed a tool that would allow us to manage ongoing projects on a daily basis, one that would allow for all employees to view and change things at the same time. This way, my boss would be able to stay up-to-date with the status of individuals’ projects without stopping to ask them about it, and employees could keep track of all of their notes in one place. I read about DropTask in a magazine I received, and decided to try it out.

DropTask is used to manage all of our ongoing projects. Each employee has their own ‘bubble’, and the projects that they are working on are grouped within this. Employees are able to add notes to tasks, meaning projects are easily transferred to another employee to handle if someone is on vacation as they have access to everything regarding the project(s). We also have a ‘Projects not yet assigned’ bubble so when customers call in for quotes, whoever takes the call can create a task. Then, when an employee finishes their current project(s), they are able to see the tasks that have not yet been handled and can start working on them. Similarly, we have a ‘Projects Completed’ bubble, so when a task is completed (they have quoted the customer, prepared artwork, and taken an order) it can be moved into here.

At the end of every week, I print all of these ‘bubbles’ off; the Projects Completed, the Projects not yet assigned and each employee’s own. These printouts from DropTask are used as a guide in our office meetings.

Droptask printouts

We are currently using DropTask to manage every project in the company, regardless of size. DropTask allows us to create bubbles for each and every task to be done. For example, when someone calls in requesting a quote for 50 shirts, we can create a task and track it until completion when an order is placed.  We even use it for our sales rep – when he has deliveries to make, we create task bubbles for him so he knows where to go, who to see and what he is dropping off, all without asking.

“It is refreshing to have a visual representation of what is going on in the office that all employees are able to edit. It has helped reduce my boss’s time spent managing employee projects, and it has increased our response times and overall success of follow-up with customers.”

DropTask is extremely easy and convenient to work with. It is refreshing to have a visual representation of what is going on in the office that all employees are able to edit. It has helped reduce my boss’s time spent managing employee projects, and it has increased our response times and overall success of follow-up with customers. If we provide a quote, but the customer doesn’t make an immediate decision, the project bubble still exists. An employee could click on it, see the date of the last note that was made along with the customer contact information and they could then follow-up on the enquiry. If the customer tells us, for example, that they won’t be able to make a decision for 2 or 3 months, we can set that time as a due date to remind ourselves to follow up with this customer. It is a great system that keeps us from relying on individual employees’ post-it notes, emails, or memories, which makes it easier for employees to be away from work last minute and for closer monitoring of customer contact. I believe that this has led to higher sales numbers while reducing the amount of physical paper used weekly – all the information is available at a glance in DropTask.

Summer workplace productivity – how can visual task management help?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ah, the summer. The sun is shining, the air is warm and the days are longer. For many of us, these longer days will be spent in work dreaming of much anticipated holidays. Taking a break can be a great boost for both the worker and the workplace, with productivity often increasing after a well-deserved rest.

However, did you know that during the summer season, workplace productivity can actually decline?

A Captivate study found that summertime has a detrimental effect upon workplace productivity, with employees reporting a 20% drop in overall productivity. With worker’s minds drifting to thoughts of sandy beaches and sun loungers, almost half reported that they are more distracted during this period (45%). Not only that, but the projects that do get completed during the summer have a 13% increase in turnaround time. It would be logical to think that more flexible working hours during the summer may help boost productivity, however Captivate found that this actually exacerbates the problem. Of those employees whose companies offered increased hours Monday-Thursday in order for a shortened Friday, 52% reported a decrease in workplace productivity. It’s not all negative though – those employees whose employers allowed them to work from home reported a 26% rise in productivity levels. Perhaps they used DropTask?! I jest.  

So what can be done to beat the summer workplace productivity slump? Well implemented project management for a start, and that’s where DropTask comes in. Here are a few of the ways that visual task management can boost your workplace productivity this summer.

Keeping track of colleague’s holidays

One of the hardest parts of working during the summer is keeping track of everyone’s holidays and time out of the office. With Google Calendar Integration, tasks can be viewed alongside your colleague’s holidays, making it easier to manage tasks as a team.

Home and office become one 

With increased numbers of workers telecommuting during the summer, it’s easy to lose track of the tasks of those not in the office. DropTask enables you to see project updates in real time, giving you a clear idea of what all your workmates are doing, no matter where they are. Your tasks will be automatically synced across all your devices too, meaning you’ll never miss a beat. You can also chat to your collaborators and comment on your mutual projects, as well as sharing any handy files with each other.

Regain focus on the task at hand

Too busy thinking about what to pack in your suitcase or trying to work with colleagues whose minds are elsewhere? Having a visual to-do list like DropTask can provide a simple visual reminder of the tasks at hand, along with their current status, priority and effort level. Reminders when tasks are due will keep you on the ball, as well as visual notifications when any changes take place within a project.

Make the return to work less daunting

Sun block? Check. Holiday insurance? Check. Meeting pre-holiday deadlines at work? Check. By visualizing your workload everyday with DropTask, you can be sure to prioritize your workload in order to complete all necessary tasks before you take your break. Your colleagues will be able to see what you’ve completed and what you’re putting on hold until after you return – with just one glance.

Implement the smooth running of your holiday

If you’re too busy mentally planning your holiday whilst at your desk it’s obvious your productivity is going to take a dip. Clear your mind by using DropTask at home to create a holiday organization project and prevent a last minute rush to the passport office. Feeling ultra organized? Use DropTask as a suitcase check list to avoid forgetting anything vital.

Don’t let your productivity take a downturn in the workplace this summer, try utilizing DropTask instead. We promise those poolside cocktails will taste even sweeter knowing that your work commitments are dealt with, and the return to work will be a breeze.

How do you stay productive during the summer? We’d love to hear your thoughts – let us know below!

Get the most out of your team effort!

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.

Collaboration

Collaboration

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.

CollaborationEverything 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.

New Feature – Request an update!

DropTask is great for collaboration and task delegation, so our new Update Requests feature has been designed to support you with managing and monitoring task progress on any shared projects you may have.

The first thing you’ll notice is a new category in the left side menu of the application, called ‘Update Requests’. This is where you’ll find yourself looking if you’ve received or sent a request for an update on a task.

Update Requests

Sending a request is very straight forward – simply click the task and a button will appear in the task sidebar. You’ll have the additional option to add a comment if you wish, otherwise you can go straight ahead and click ‘Request Update’.

If you receive an update request, you’ll get notified through the application, and a visual indicator will appear in the left side panel. To provide an update and remove the notification, you’ll need to provide a comment in the task sidebar. Once you’ve done this, the person who has requested an update will receive a notification in the ‘Received’ section in the left side menu, along with your comment.

Request Update

When you start using this feature you’ll notice that it becomes very useful when you’re working with others and want to avoid any tasks becoming overdue, and it’s equally as useful if you’re just looking for a casual update to make sure things are running smoothly.

You can find a step by step support article for this feature here. As always, we endeavour to support you with the best possible features for task management and productivity, so if you have any feedback then please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

5 Ways in which DropTask encourages Academic Productivity

Being a student in today’s technologically advanced world brings forward endless opportunities for various educational techniques and teaching methods to be employed in the classroom. The diverse approaches that academic institutions employ almost always aim to achieve one sought after result – an increase in productivity and performance represented through better grades.

It could be argued that achieving this is down to several variable factors, and undoubtedly even a teacher or professor’s involvement can have a direct impact on the end result.  So in today’s blog, we’ll explore 5 different ways in which a visual task management application such as DropTask can encourage productivity in the classroom for both students and teachers.

1.   Manage all your notes in one place

Folders, files and notepads are fine if you’re in a hurry.  However, when it comes to your personal organisation and preparation, there’s always at least one mid-assignment moment where you find yourself looking for notes that you’d made months ago.  Whether you’re searching through emails or delving into your archives, valuable time that could be used to complete your assignment or prepare for an exam is instead being spent on a treasure hunt that may never pay off. So wouldn’t it be great to keep all of your notes in one easy-to-access place?

Manage all your notes in one place

With DropTask, you can create different projects that reflect your different classes, and then add different tasks to represent your assignments. How you use DropTask to suit your needs is your preference, but within your project you have the option to attach files and images from your Computer, Google Drive or even Dropbox, which really simplifies the way in which you can store and categorise all of your notes.


2. 
Communicate with your peers

Everyone knows the importance of communication, but when it comes to education whether you’re a student or a teacher, it can make all the difference to your overall classroom confidence.  Within DropTask, you are able to add comments and communicate with whoever you choose to share your project with. This feature provides you with a brilliant opportunity to ask questions and stay connected to those you are working closely with, whilst still maintaining a professional peer to peer relationship. You can also personalise DropTask by uploading your picture to represent you, or use your initials as an avatar.

Communicate with your peers

3.  Engage in your assignments 

When you use DropTask you have the option to create projects, groups and tasks and assign different colours to each of your areas of interest. When it comes to your studies, whether you’re an artist or an analytical thinker, DropTask provokes you to engage with what you’re doing by stimulating both sides of your brain. This helps turn even the most tiresome assignment into a thought provoking and visual embodiment.

Engage in your assignments


4.  
De-stress – Manage your deadlines

Juggling your deadlines can sometimes be a very difficult and stressful task, especially if you spend more time counting down the days rather than productively working towards your next step. Use the ‘set a due date’ feature on DropTask to manage your next deadline. It may even be a good idea to set your own personal deadlines to manage all of the different aspects of research you’ll need to carry out in completing an assignment, and tick them off as you go along so you can track your progress.

De-stress - Manage your deadlines


5.  
Don’t feel overwhelmed

DropTask has been designed to give you an opportunity to use a visual task management application that’s going to support and assist you with managing your productivity. Its user-friendly interface allows you to get stuck in straight away, and its versatility allows you to use it to manage various projects, presentations, assignments or even performance schedules. Using features to set status, priority and effort can simplify the steps you take to reach your end result (whether it’s an assignment or an exam). You’ll soon find that you can curb that overwhelming feeling of getting closer to a deadline, and instead give a boost to your confidence.

Don't Feel Overwhelmed

Combine Your Productivity with Creativity

It’s often said that we have the tendency to use one side of our brain more than the other, and that when it comes to rationalisation, logical thinking and creativity, we use opposite sides of our brain to control our thinking. The left side is said to be more analytical, with abilities in language and understanding, whereas the right side is supposed to control our intuition and imagination – not to mention our creativity. So in this post, we’re going to show you how DropTask can revolutionise the way in which you engage, manage, and take control of those neglected tasks.

In the general scheme of things, we often spend more time than we’d like to admit when it comes to getting back to people, updating progress on a current task or project, or even sifting through bits of paper to find out where that all-important document is. It could be argued that all of the above feel like tedious tasks, and what you’re actually achieving is far from effective project management because you don’t really feel fully engaged to what’s going on.

So here at DropTask, we try to be a very forward and creative-thinking team, with the understanding that in order to fully engage in what you’re doing, you need to stimulate the brain to achieve maximum amounts of productivity. When you take a look at DropTask, you’ll see that the primary view is the ‘Group View’.

Group View

Group View

Your blank canvas is there and waiting to be bursting with groups, tasks, ideas and research, and each time you attach a file, set a due date or add a tag, you’re presented with a visual to support it. Taking a simple glance at the app is all you need to stay informed and on top of things, and the aesthetics of the task management software compliments the fluidity and ‘fun’ nature of navigating through it.

DropTask successfully combines logic, language and communication, precision and creativity into one easily manageable online application, ensuring that a good working product is still at the heart of things. The innovative nature of the interface fails to draw away from its purpose to serve as an effective task management application, and we’re confident that once you start using it, you’ll agree!
