Time management refers to the process of managing the time spent on specific activities. This is practiced to enhance productivity or efficiency. Time management is promoted by implementation of skills, tools and techniques to execute a task in the stipulated time.
Time management may also include prioritizing tasks to increase efficiency. Effective time management includes planning, setting of goals, allocation, analysis, monitoring and scheduling. Often, all you may need to do is to create the right to do list. And that’s where todoist comes in.
Making to-do-lists is not as simple as it used to be. We now need something that supervises our activities while helping us tick off the tasks one by one. With several to-do-list apps now flooding the market, Todoist is one of the best apps out there.
You can organize as many tasks as the control-freak in you wants to, your productivity is monitored and this app is rather simple to use. It is a competitively priced app. There is a free version for those who are slightly apprehensive about spending their money when it comes to helping themselves with their daily to-do tasks, but this free version, will have some much needed features missing.
About the app
Here is a look at how todoist helps you in time management.
This task management tool has apps for several platforms, so you can use it on your Android smartphone, as well as use plugins for Thunderbird or Gmail. This is a cloud-based service, so whenever you update your to-do-list on one device, it gets updated on all the other devices where you have installed Todoist.
You can assign your tasks to different projects and they can be colour co-ordinated. Along with specifying your tasks, you can add sub-tasks, due dates, reminders and flag the urgent tasks and so on. Communicating with the app is simple as the input language is easy. Just type in the keywords like ‘every week’ or ‘every friday’ to get reminders accordingly. “#” and “@“ symbols can also be used to assign tasks to different projects.
On your android smartphone, swiping on any task will gave way to quick action options, which allow you to choose the due date for that particular task.
Assigning tasks to others is equally easy, but they will need to have the Todoist app. The good thing is that they can have the free version for this. While you can assign tasks to others, they can assign tasks to you too. Necessary files and comments can be added to any task, so that everyone in the collaboration has the information that he or she might need.
An amazing feature that you will love:
We all want to know how productive we have been. There is a feature in the Todoist, known as Karma, that shows you whether you have been spending your time completing the most important projects or not. Available only to the premium users, it helps point out which days you are the most productive and also lets you know if you have been wasting your time on assignments or tasks are not a priority. It is rare, but very helpful feature that you will rarely get on any other to-do-list apps.
This is, hands-down, one of the best apps that the market has seen so far and also much needed to live an organized and hassle free life. It has a simple user interface, supports all platforms, comes with location based reminders and can be used on so many platforms, so you will get all the help that you need to get on with your day.
The only drawback is that the free subscribers will not have access to all the interesting features that this app has, but then again, nothing good in this world comes for free, right?
