What Happens When a Focused To-Do List Meets Powerful Project Management Tools?
You go from “Todoist” to saying, “Hello, Focus!”
Engaged, in-the-know, anticipating changes before they arise and seeing a clear road to “done”: can your “to-do” list do this?
When you’re ready to move from an ever-unfolding, never-ending task-list and find a solution that banishes procrastination, sparks your inherent productivity and helps you bring your team into the loop, you’ll need way more than just a list.
You’ll need to have a way to organize, plan and delegate that list. You’ll need to zoom out and literally be able to see and visualize how these “tasks” fit into a broader scope. And you’ll need to be able to keep communications about tasks in one spot, engaging only who it’s relevant to, without overwhelming the whole team.
Hello Focus is that alternative to Todoist that brings your whole team together to accomplish so much more than just a check-mark on a task. We move your project forward, with you in the driver’s seat.
Don’t Micro-Manage & Don’t Multi-Task – Strike a Balance Instead
Yes, tasks are important. They’re the building blocks that move a project forward. If you drop the ball on one, it can have a serious Domino chain reaction. Tasks don’t exist in silos, they’re always interdependent.
But isn’t that exactly why you need so much more than just a to-do list?
As an alternative to Todoist, Hello Focus maintains focus on more than just tasks. It responds to the humans behind that task. The truth is that we’re not robots and crossing tasks off our lists requires way more than “karma points” and gamification incentives.
Humans need a way to mitigate those annoying little behaviors that allow us to sabotage those Big Plans. And you need a way to zone in to just one thing – the most important things – that will help you make real progress.
Rather than overwhelming you and your team with a cascading list of items, Hello Focus lets you set up tasks, decide which are recurring, automate what you need and then takes over. Built “for your eyes only”, the Hello Focus app only brings to your attention relevant tasks, one a time.
Our “Do Not Disturb” feature makes sure you maintain focus, rather than jumping after the next shiny object or, worse still, putting off the big and meaningful things you need to get done in favour of “busywork”.
Task notes, SMS task reminders, task emails: granular control can be very useful – but only if you’re not wasting your time micro-managing the management of these tasks.
Map Your Way to “Done!”
With your focus pointing straight ahead – jumping from one task to the next – you’re prone to develop tunnel vision. Hello Focus only helps you zone in to specific tasks, blocking out all other distractions when you decide it’s time to get working.
Otherwise, the app helps you zoom out and place the stacking and completion of these tasks as part of a larger roadmap from the start to the finish of a project. Our powerful and time-tested Gantt Chart links tasks, resources and team members together so you can get a comprehensive visualization of where you are.
How valuable is this information when you’re trying to update a client, make a budget tighter and shift directions of a project, after the first round of revisions?
In a word: invaluable.
Gantt charts in Hello Focus deliver so much more than a snapshot. When you use them to check-in and review, they can be your compass, continually guiding you to a triumphant, “done!”, “going live!” and “getting paid!”
Productivity Tracking Meets Project Tracking
Todoist is all about task-tracking. But what about project tracking? How do you take stock, make sure your tasks align with the progress of your project and that the right team members are working on the right tasks?
Project management is about more than just assigning, delegating, automating and having recurring reminders. To truly be effective in getting things done, you need to know why you’re doing it and get a sense if your strategy is working or not.
That’s why Hello Focus allows you to see who is working on what at any given time. You can make sure that each of your team members are playing to their strengths. Generate insightful reports for team and project productivity, and tweak your resource and assigned tasks going forward.
