Todoist lets you manage your tasks anywhere: at home, at school, at work, online, offline, and on 13 platforms and devices.
Todoist is a comprehensive task management system that helps users keep track of what they need to do, with whom they need to do it and how they can accomplish those tasks. The site could be useful for companies attempting to manage a large list of responsibilities, as well as for individuals wishing to more efficiently manage their time. Todoist’s best quality is that it can be synced across a total of 13 platforms and devices, including the web, iOS/Android, Chrome, Firefox, Windows, Mac OS, and even Gmail. Tasks and updates are automatically synced across all platforms, so users can be constantly reminded of their tasks no matter what device, browser or website they’re using. Just as the management system is available across several platforms, Todoist can be used in a variety of ways. The company simply provides the tool set that makes managing tasks easier, and it’s up to the user to apply that tool set to a real life application.
Todolist is comparable to task management systems such as Google Drive or Asana, but it’s much better than those companies because it’s organized and designed in a manner that’s much easier to use and understand. Part of Todoist’s superior efficiency stems from its ability to allow users to collaborate on shared tasks (also a feature of Google Drive and Asana, but not implemented quite as well on those platforms). This makes it especially useful for businesses that want multiple employees to be able to work on tasks together (or mark them as finished so the entire team is aware). Employers can set priority levels, due dates, and upload files that can be viewed by anyone with access to the list. There’s also an option to set recurring dates for a particular task that needs to be completed at regular intervals (such as a daily email or a monthly website update). Todolist is available for free with limited features, and the premium option is only $29/year. Todolist for Business, which includes additional team management functions, is $29/user/year or $3/user/month, a relatively cheap price for the effective services provided.
