Manage It News

July 8, 2014

Hello Everybody,

Over the past few weeks there have been a number of great improvements to Manage It. We hope these improvements help make you even more productive.

Find Tasks

You can now quickly find your tasks from within the app. Simply click the search button in the app then start typing.

Many people have started to use the new find feature to “Tag” their tasks. For example you can add a task called:

“Do TPS report #high”

And if you type in “#high” in to the find field, we will only show you tasks that have the tag #high in the task title. We hope this will help all of us find and filter our tasks.

 

Go to a Task from History Panel

We also added the ability for you to click on the task name in the history panel (the bottom right of the screen) and be taken directly to where the task is. This will help you quickly see what tasks are added or edited by other people in your project.

Export Project Tasks to a Spreadsheet

You can now download your project to your computer. Click on the wrench icon in the app then click “export project as csv” and your project will begin to download. You can then open this file in Microsoft Excel or any other spreadsheet application.

New Getting Started Help Pages


We added a number of pages to our website to help you get started with Manage It. If you do not understand how to use the app, maybe these pages can help:

Last week we added support for 4 new platforms: Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1, BlackBerry BB10, and BlackBerry PlayBook. See the links below to download:

Windows Phone 8.1

As always let us know if you have any suggestions or comments. Your comments help make the app better for everybody using it, thanks!

Manage It News

June 18, 2014

Hello Everybody,

We have been very busy since the last time we talked. Here are some of the new things we worked on to make Manage It (http://manageitapp.com) a great tool to help your team get organized.

Improved Printing

You can now print your tasks right from the web site (http://app.manageitapp.com).

To print simply:

  • Open the project that you would like to print
  • In the web browser click File->Print

We hope to bring printing to the mobile apps in a future update.

Attach web links to tasks

We now make it easy for you to attach any link to a task.

To attach a link to a task:

  • Click the paperclip icon on any task
  • Click the “Link” option
  • Add the website address you would like to attach to the task

Improved Google Drive Picker

We recently pushed a large update for the Google Drive file picker. You might not notice a change in the web browser but on mobile devices like your iPhone, the Google Drive picker is much easier to use and much faster. Android should already have the new picker and iOS users should see it in the next release.

Improved Windows Phone support

We are close to releasing our Window Phone native app but in the meantime we made a number of improvements so that the app works better on the phone when you use it through the web browser. Stay tuned for more to come for Windows and Windows Phone.

Attach Box.com files to tasks

If you use the Box.com file service you can now attach these files to your tasks.

To attach a Box.com file to a task:

  • Click the paperclip icon on any task
  • Click the “Box” option
  • Choose the file you would like to attach to the task

Currently this only works in the web browser but it should make it to our mobile apps in the next update.

New Evernote Picker

We recently improved our file picker for Evernote file types. You will now see the thumbnail and the date that the note was last edited.

To attach an Evernote file to a task:

  • Click the paperclip icon on any task
  • Click the “Evernote” option
  • Choose the file you would like to attach to the task

As always let us know if you have any suggestions or comments. Your comments help make the app better for everybody using it, thanks!

Manage It app Monthly News

Manage It App Monthly News

As you probably know we have 2 apps to help you get organized, Get It Done and Manage It. Here is some of the new things going on with the Manage It app:

 

Daily Email

You will now receive a daily email reminding you of:

- Tasks you have starred
- Tasks that are assigned to you
- Tasks that are due soon but nobody is assigned to them yet

The default is for you to receive the email Monday through Friday but you can change the days or turn off the emails completely from the settings in the app. If you are on iOS you may need to update your app before you see these settings.

 

Free Android App

Our first Android release is out, get it by clicking here:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.marcucio.manageitapp

You can now quickly access your projects from your Android phone or tablet when you are not near a computer. There is much more we would like to do on Android to make it a great experience for you. We hope this app is a good starting point.

 

iOS improvements

Our new iPhone and iPad apps have been very well received and we are continually working to make them better. Editing tasks and notes is much faster in our latest version. We also made improvements to syncing tasks when the app is not open, this helps make sure you don’t have to wait for the app to sync when you open it. The new version (1.2.1) should be in the App Store in the next few days. If you haven’t used the iOS app already you can get it here:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/manage-it-project-manager/id849077037

 

Evernote help page

Many of you use Manage It to attach and assign Evernote notes. We have written a help page for anyone who would like more information on how we integrate with Evernote and how it can be helpful to you:

Heartbleed

Like everyone else on the internet we took a close look at the security of our apps when the Heartbleed vulnerability was disclosed. We were happy to find that Manage It was not vulnerable to Heartbleed. Nonetheless, as a precaution, we took the time to update all of our servers, certificates, and rotated security keys where necessary. The security of your data is our highest priority.

 

As always let us know if you have any suggestions or comments,

New, Android widget for Get It Done Android

April 1, 2014

Get It Done Android

Get It Done Android

 

Today we released a new version of our Get It Done Android app which now includes a widget you can put on the home screen of your phone or tablet. This is one of our most heavily requested features and we are glad to bring it to you today.

A few things you can do with the new Android widget:

– View your tasks for any folder (Inbox, Today, Next, Scheduled, and Someday)
– Display multiple widgets at one time – Show more than one folder on your home screen

We are looking to build out this widget more in the future to offer more capabilities but we think this is a good start.

If anyone has any suggestions or comments please let us know!

 

Thanks,

Mike
