We came across this great review of our apps by Severe Weather Roofing and Restoration from Denver, CO. They are a roofing company serving area in Colorado including Denver, Fort Collins, Boulder, Loveland and Longmont.

The major benefits that the Marcucio product line brings to many of our construction projects is the ability to get organized. Many times clutter, disorganization, and disarray is the single most reason why a project fails either because workers are unsure of what to do, project changes don’t get documented, or any of the other countless reasons which can occur within the lifespan of a construction build and Marcucio has certainly helped us prevent these type of problems.

The three main aspects that we like about Marcucio is that it was built upon organizing yourself as the project manager, organizing your team, and organizing passwords and protective information securely.

The self-management tool built into Marcucio which is called ‘Get It Done‘ is just amazing. At the very least it is a to-do list and a task manager but with many more features than just writing a note on a piece of paper. The app lets us organize various tasks and delegate them, ultimately tracking the progress of each even on a mobile platform. Emails associated with tasks are all saved in dedicated folders and the tasks themselves can be ‘tagged’ for easier access and sorting. The tasks can be dropped into a calendar, prioritized, postponed, or outfitted with a reminder.

Another app of Marcucio that we really appreciate having is the ‘Manage It‘ app. What it basically does is enable members of our team to be added to a project for collaboration, delegation, and communication. Everyone included on the team is kept up to date on where each member is with their task and if resources need to be allocated to make sure the project flies smoothly.

Finally, ‘Remember It‘ serves as a safeguard not only so team managers will always have access to their important information, but so that others will not. The program features bank-level security and data back-up for those ‘just in case’ moments. There is a mobile app or a website platform to use so nothing needs to be downloaded and thus at risk for compromise.
Marcucio is a fine blend of products that are easy to access on the web or in mobile and are very visually friendly. The apps involved with the family of products are very versatile for construction and other products. We’re excited to see more features soon!

Manage It March News

March 10, 2016

February was another busy month for the Manage It app and March is shaping up to be a great month as well.

Here are some of the new things we’ve added to help you be more productive:

  • New Mac OSX app
  • Add tasks to the bottom of the list
  • Add tasks using your voice
  • Speed improvements

 

New app for Mac OS X

After over a year of going back and forth with Apple, we finally got approval for our Mac OS X app. Here are some of the advantages of using the Mac app over the app in your web browser:

  • You can use the app even if you do not have an internet connection.
  • You can put the app icon on your desktop or your dock
  • More keyboard shortcuts
  • Notification badge in the dock (if you put the app there)
You can find the app in the app store on your computer or by clicking here:

Add tasks to the bottom of the list

You might not have even noticed a small feature we added, but it will surely make your life easier. You can now choose to add new tasks to the top or bottom of the list by toggling the arrow to the left of the “Add Task” text field. Click this arrow to set whether tasks get added to the top or bottom of the task list. This will save you from having to manually move tasks to the bottom of the list when adding a group of tasks.

Add tasks using your voice

If you are using the Chrome web browser, you can now add tasks by just talking to your computer. To add tasks using voice, click the microphone icon in the “Add Task” field, then just say the name your task. Please note, the first time you use this feature you may have to give us permissions to use your microphone.

Speed improvements

We are always looking to make the app faster. Last month we made some improvements that made sorting and adding tasks faster. If you have a small list of tasks you might not notice an improvement, but if you have thousands of tasks in a project you will definitely see a marked improvement in performance.

We hope everyone is having a productive March. As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions!

New Calendar Improvements and Task Effort

February 22, 2016

Hello Everybody,

Last month our apps passed the 3,000,000 tasks mark. This month we are adding a feature to Manage It that will help you be more productive.

Last week we pushed a new version of the Manage It app where you can add “effort” (duration) to a task. Tasks can now span multiple days in the calendar and also show their effort right on the task list. You can resize tasks on the calendar or change their effort through the task list.

To view your company calendar

  • Go to https://app.manageitapp.com/ or open the app on your device.
  • On desktop or tablet: Click the “Schedule” button in the left column of the app.
  • On mobile devices: Click the button in the upper left corner of the app to open the left drawer then click the “Schedule” button in the left column of the app.

Your tasks will now span multiple days if you specified effort for the task. You can resize tasks to change the due date and task effort.

Adding new tasks

To add a task to the calendar all you need to do is add a due date to the task. If you would like to create a new task on the calendar, just click on the day you would like to add the task to. You can also select multiple days on the calendar to add a task that spans multiple days.

Adding effort or duration to your existing tasks

You can add the amount of effort it will take to complete a task from your task list. If you add effort to a task, the task will span multiple days on your calendar. To add effort to the task, click the task menu (the 3 dots to the right of the task) then click “Effort…”.

Editing and viewing tasks

To edit or view a task that is on the calendar just click on the task. The amount of effort estimated to complete the task will show right on it, in this case it is 5 days:

A few other things you can do in the calendar:

  • Drag and drop tasks to change their due date.
  • Show or hide tasks by clicking their project name on the right side of the page.
  • Resize a task to change the due date and effort.

The new version of the app is in the app store for all devices except for iOS. We are expecting Apple to approve the update sometime this week, keep a eye out for it.

We hope everyone is having a productive February, we always look forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions!

Thanks,

The Manage It Team

Manage It v4 is out, get it now!

February 2, 2016

Hello everyone,

We hope everybody had a productive January. This past month we hit a major milestone, you’ve now managed over 3 million tasks with our apps! We hope that we make your life just a little easier and we work hard to keep your data safe and secure.

Last week we released the 4th major change to the Manage It app (https://manageitapp.com). On the surface it might look the same, but behind the scenes there were major changes. We redesigned our entire back-end so that we can make the app faster and more stable. This release also allows us to add a lot of helpful functionality to both Manage It and Get It Done in the future. Keep an eye on us because we have many new features planned for the next few months.

So how do you get the new app? If you access the app through the web browser you are probably already using it, we automatically direct you to the new app when you reload the webpage.

If you downloaded the app from an app store you may already be up to date as well. If not, just head to the app store and click the update button. Here are links to the different app stores depending on what device you have:

Thanks for trusting us with your personal and business tasks, we are working hard to make you more productive and organized.

Have a great February!

Manage It November News

November 9, 2015

Hello everybody! The past month has been a busy one for the Manage It app. Here are some of the new features we’ve added to Manage It:

 

  • Improved My Tasks view – See the context of your tasks and sort your tasks from this view
  • Activity feed improvements – Know when new activity has come in
  • iPad split screen and slide over – Use the app in split screen mode or slide over mode on the iPad
  • Lower pricing – Archived projects no longer count toward your total project count

 

Improved My Tasks view

We made 2 big improvements to the My Tasks and People views in the app.

1) You can now sort all of your tasks that are in your My Tasks or People views. Previously you were only able to sort tasks if they had a parent task in the list but now your parent tasks are sortable too. Your Starred and Assigned lists are also listed in the same order as they are in the project, this means if you sort in your Starred or Assigned lists, your changes are reflected in the main project.

2) You now see the context of tasks in your Assigned and Starred lists. This is very useful if you use sub-tasks in the app. If you are assigned a sub task, you will now also see the name of the parent task in the list. For example, if you were assigned the task “Finish the landing page” under the main task “The Big Jones Project” it would show up in your Assigned task list like this:

 

context view

 

Activity feed improvements

In your company activity feed we no longer auto load new activity for you. We noticed that when a lot of changes were happening, the activity feed would be difficult to read because it would keep adding the new items as they come in. We took a cue from Facebook and added an indicator letting you know that there were new changes and how many new changes are coming in:

 

new changes indicator

 

iPad split screen and slide over

If you own a newer iPad and have the latest iOS 9 update for it, you can use Manage It in both Slide Over and Split Screen mode. Split Screen mode lets you see 2 different apps side by side on your screen and Slide Over mode lets you quickly access your Manage It task list with the quick swipe of the screen. This is great if you are using another app and you would like to quickly add a task to Manage It but you do not want to lose your place in the app that is open. For more information on how to use Slide Over and Split Screen you can check out this overview:

http://www.macrumors.com/2015/09/16/ios-9-split-screen-multitasking-ipad/

 

Lower pricing

As promised, we will continue to lower prices or give you more for your money. Starting this month your archived projects no longer count toward your total project count. Many companies create a new project for each customer and when the project is complete they archive it. This helps keep the app uncluttered but still gives you the ability to reference old projects. Previously these archived projects counted toward your total number of projects but now we only bill you for the projects that are active.

We hope to continue lowering pricing and giving you more value for your money as we continue to grow.

 

We hope all of you had a great month. As always, please send any feedback our way!
