How difficult it gets for Project Managers to keep up with tasks for the day? Besides a Work Breakdown Structure and a project schedule built into Microsoft Project or Excel focusing on project tasks, Project Managers still carry on unscheduled tasks daily that support project and non-project activities. Where are such tasks recorded and how do Project Managers keep track of their daily activities and prioritize their actions? Some project managers choose to include them in the Project Schedule while others record them on a personal notepad. Others keep them on an electronic To-Do-List saved on different digital media (flash drive, PC at work, PC at home, others) of which certain instances are not updated as time progresses leaving the Project Manager with various versions of the information spread without any conformity.
1. Create New Tasks
2. Search for Tasks
3. Organize Tasks for different activities by categorizing them under ‘Lists’.
4. Check Tasks to mark completion.
5. Share Tasks or Lists with your staff or Project members for better collaboration on activities.
6. Receive daily reminders (by email) of tasks that are outstanding for the day/week/month/year.
This is only a subset of what this great tool has to offer. The best advantage to all this is you can view these tasks anywhere using many digital media. You can download ‘Wunderlist’ on your iPhone, iPad, Android-based phones, Blackberry, and even Windows powered phones. And with a basic Internet connection, you can monitor or assign tasks on the road, in meetings, or anywhere you are.
This is not just another Project Management tool. It is rather a great free tool for Project Managers to better monitor, manage, and control project management activities.
