Manage It July News

July Newsletter

Hello, everybody! The past month has been a busy one for the Manage It app. Here are some of the new things we added to Manage It to help make you more productive:

  • Subscribing to calendars – See your tasks in Outlook, Google Calendar, or your favorite calendar application
  • Profile Photos – Quickly see who’s assigned to which tasks
  • Apple Watch – Access your tasks from your shiny new watch
  • Project dashboard – Get a birds-eye view of your projects

 

Subscribing to calendars

Fresh off the press… Yesterday, we added ics calendar sharing for Premium customers. What this means is that you can see your tasks in Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, or your favorite calendar application. This will allow you to easily see your tasks without even opening Manage It. This was one of your top 10 most-requested features so we are very excited about this. For more information, see this page:

(Please note that the mobile app version for this feature will roll out to all devices sometime this week. Make sure you have the latest app by going to the app store on your device.)

 

Profile photos

It is now easier for you to see the photo of the person or people who are assigned a task. This will save you even more time by not having to click around the app just to see who is working which tasks:

Apple Watch

A few weeks ago we added support for the Apple Watch. We know this is a very new device and if you are one of the lucky ones, then we got you covered. You can now get a quick glance of the tasks that you should be working on without going to your phone or your computer.

 

Project dashboard

You now have a new dashboard for your projects when you click the “Projects” button in the left pane of the app. This gives you a quick birds-eye view of all of your projects, including photos of who is part of the project, and also the number of tasks that are due. You can also switch from “card view” or “list view” by clicking the button at the top right of the window:

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

Manage It June News

June 2, 2015

Manage It

 

Hello everybody! We’ve made some changes this month to the Manage It app that should help you and your team be even more productive.

 

More projects for free.

As more people use the app we are able to bring down the pricing and are able to give away more features to you for free. A few months ago we lowered pricing on our top plans and last week we added another project to the free plan. For all companies just trying out the app and are on the free plan you are now able to create 2 projects for no cost. As more people use the Manage It app we hope to lower prices many more time in the future. 

 

Undo completing a task.

If you are like me and have fat fingers, you sometimes check off tasks by mistake. Now there is an easy way for you to undo when you mistakenly complete a task. When you complete a task you will see a message at the bottom of your window, just click the UNDO button to roll back your last change:

Undo task completion

 

Archiving projects. 

We recently made it easier for you to archive your old projects. This is helpful if you have an old project that you do not want to delete but you also don’t want it cluttering up the app. To Archive a project just go into the “Edit Projects” dialog, click on the project you would like to archive, then click “Archive Project”:

Archive Project

 

New “My Tasks” calendar and activity dashboards.

A few months ago we added the “My Tasks” dashboard that is found in the left navigation menu. This dashboard is a quick way to see tasks that you starred or are assigned to you. A few weeks ago we added 2 new additions to this dashboard: My Calendar and My Activity. The “My Calendar” dashboard is a nice way for you to see all the tasks that are assigned to you and when they are due in a month, week, or list view. This is great if you find it easier to see your tasks on a calendar instead of just in a list. The “My Activity” dashboard is a way to see everything you have done in the past, this is useful if you need to know what you accomplished on a particular day.

 

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

Introducing the People Dashboard

May 6, 2015

Manage It

Our goal with Manage It is to make an app so valuable to you that you depend on it every day. We strive for Manage It to make your team much more productive. Today we’ve released a new update that will allow you and your team to be even more productive.

Important: make sure you have the latest version of the app by going to the app store on your device and clicking update! (iOS devices can take up to 2 weeks to get the update)

Say hi to the People Dashboard.

Today we’re introducing a new dashboard that shows you what everyone in your company is working on. The People Dashboard shows you what everybody is doing across all of your projects. This new dashboard allows you to:

  • See what tasks are assigned to a person
  • See someone’s past activity
  • View their schedule

To see your new dashboard, just click on the People button in the left menu:

Once you choose a person you can see their Tasks, Schedule, Activity, or change their permissions. You can do any of these actions by using the buttons on top of the page:

Person View

 

 

We hope this helps save you time while improving the communication between everyone in your company.

View your completed tasks in your calendar.

From your calendar, you can now see what day a task was completed. This is very helpful when you want to go back and see what was accomplished on a particular day.  All of your completed tasks will show up in a lighter color on the day they were completed:

A cleaner look.

We’ve also cleaned up the look of the left navigation window. The new cleaner look will allow you to see more of your projects and it will also give you one central place to edit your projects and workspaces:

Manage It 3 is Here!

April 3, 2015

Manage It

We just released the 3rd major version of the Manage It app. Here are some of the things that we added for you.

 

Important, make sure you have the latest version of the app by going to manageitapp.com then clicking on the link for your device at the bottom of the page. If  it tells you there is an update please do so.

 

New way to see all your tasks

You can now see all your starred tasks and tasks assigned to you across ALL of your projects from one easy to read dashboard. This will allow you to get a better overview of everything you need to do without opening each of your projects.

To see all of your tasks, open the left menu by clicking the button in the upper left corner of the app, then click “My Tasks”. If you do not see the “My Tasks” button above the Schedule button you might not have the latest version of the app. Just update the app on your device to get the latest.

Add a task from anywhere in the app

We added a new + button to the top of the app where you can quickly add a task to any project from anywhere in the app. From this screen you can also add a due date to your tasks and assign the task to people in your company. We hope that if this button makes you even a few seconds more productive we have done our job!

BlackBerry Classic Support

Many of our enterprise customers love their BlackBerry phones and we continue to support all of the new devices that come out. The latest BlackBerry to be released is called the “Classic” which looks a lot like the older devices but has the most up up to date OS. Manage It version 3 is optimized for the screen size of this device and we made many speed improvements to make it work great on this device.

 

Faster app, less bugs

A big focus for Manage It version 3 was to make the app faster to open and use. Some people will see over 100% speed improvement over the previous version of the app! We also squashed many bugs thanks to your reports, as always if something is not working for you please let us know so that we can fix it.

Make sure you have our latest app! Go to your device’s app store and click update to keep Manage It up to date.

Thanks,
