We believe that the best way to stay productive is to keep your to-dos visually appealing. When you have full visibility of your workload, the best route to your end goal becomes clearer. Read on to explore how DropTask for Business’ colorful interface helps you to be more productive when tackling projects and managing tasks at work. Plus, discover an exciting new product from the creators of DropTask!
Enjoy unique visuals
At DropTask, we do task management differently. Linear to-do lists are overwhelming and can quickly become untidy. The colorful task bubbles on the DropTask Canvas
provide a visual representation of what you’ve got to get done, so you can channel your focus appropriately. We all juggle an array of to-dos in one day. Create tasks to identify each one and add Checklists
to break the task down further into actions that you need to take. Your number of subtasks are identified on your task circle, so you can easily track its progress. Because of the way colorful visuals appeal to our brain, DropTask’s playful interface is far more enjoyable to work through than pen and paper. And when we enjoy things, we connect with them more.
Simply adding meaningful Cover Images
to your DropTask Canvas will do wonders for your productivity. By using them, you add a personal touch to your project. When you customize projects your own way, you’re more likely to engage with the tasks at hand. As a result, you increase your chances of getting more done.
Categorize workflows with colors
Originally coined in Japan, ‘Kanban’ is a simple method to track tasks that are in different stages of a process. Switch from your Canvas into Workflow View
and see your tasks spread out across vertical, color coordinated columns. As an example, for your blog you could set up Kanban columns for Writing, Editing and Published. During a recruitment drive, each column could visually represent every step of the hiring process from sifting through CVs to arranging final interviews. Click and drag tasks into the next column as they move through your process.
Being able to see each step of your workflow visually defined gives you a clear overview of your project’s progress. Don’t risk burnout in an effort to get everything done in one go. Instead, break your actions down into set stages and focus on working through processes more methodically with visuals in Workflow View.
Keep the ideas flowing
At any point throughout your project, you may need some extra inspiration. DropTask integrates
with Mind Mapping software, iMindMap. Switch seamlessly from your DropTask Canvas to iMindMap and watch as your tasks transform into a pre-built Mind Map. Powerful visuals will help brainstorm fresh ideas for your ongoing project. When you’re ready, switch back to your DropTask project to watch your fresh ideas turn into actionable tasks on your Canvas.
to DropTask to make work more appealing with greater visuals and the motivation to simply get stuff done.
