Collaboration, especially remote collaboration, can be difficult without the right tools. Communication can get garbled and tasks may be overlooked because emails start to pile up, making everyone frustrated. But with Taskworld, an app developed by TaskWorld Inc., you’ll never have to worry about another group project again.
Concept and Functionality:
Though Taskworld can be used for individual tasks, the features that this app boasts makes collaborative tasks much easier. Since Taskworld also has a web app, you’ll need to create a registration, which helps in that as long as you’re logged in on both platforms, you can switch from web app to mobile app seamlessly and without losing any information by doing so.
To start collaborating, all you have to do is swipe to the side bar, which shows your profile along with your tasks, projects and your network. To invite people, go to your network and send out emails to your fellow contributors.
When the tasks pile up, Taskworld can organize and sort them in a way that will ensure that no task gets left behind. At the top right hand corner, there is a key for work progress based on color. When a task is in progress, it’s green. If it’s been completed, the task is blue. Overdue? The task is red. If there are members actively contributing to a task, then all three colors show.
Based on these colors and what you set as your deadline, the tasks will move up or down depending on how urgently they need to get finished. If you’re looking for a specific task and don’t feel like sorting through everything, you can always search for it. If you can’t remember a task you finished in the past, you can visit the archives, where you’ll find a list of all your completed tasks.
Unlike a lot of task apps, Taskworld has a very clean interface. It’s easy to locate the different buttons on the page, and there’s no clutter that makes navigating the app difficult. When members change the status of various tasks, like a social network, Taskworld will send members of the group notifications. Members in a project can also comment on various tasks.
And there aren’t many limitations when it comes to Taskworld. Sure, you can say you send out a document, but wouldn’t it be better if you could attach the document to one of your comments? With Taskworld, you can attach files from Dropbox or Google Drive.
Taskworld is a really great tool for people who partake in collaborative projects. When communication gets the best of us, Taskworld is there to help. Interestingly enough, this app, once you get the hang of it, isn’t something you can just use once and put away.
The more you use Taskworld, the better the experience gets, especially when you have more than a handful of fellow Taskworld users.
Collaboration can be a pain sometimes, but Taskworld eases that pain, and makes working with others fun again. Since Taskworld is both a mobile app and a web app, you’ll never have any issues with not being able to check progress on-the-go.
Whether you’re a student or a CEO, Taskworld is an app that you should definitely try out.
