Task Lists- Brings you a proper Task flow and planning.

Now inside Task page you can create Task lists, After creating Task lists you can create corresponding tasks inside that list. This makes your tasks more organised and offers a better task planning. Below I demonstrated  how I used this Task list feature for Organizing my tasks for creating this blog.

Task Status – To identify the progress of your tasks.

You can select different task status inside the task details window, which easily  indicates what’s happening to your tasks.

After selecting the task status, those status will be displayed with each task in the task page, which makes you pretty easy to note out the condition  of each tasks.

Overwhelmed employee

Employees are overwhelmed!!! And not productive?

09/05/2013

When we do more things our productivity will go high, however does it mean that an organization where all the employees are overwhelmed with work will result in high productivity? Definitely not ! It’s a real fact that when employees feel overwhelmed, their morale gets degraded and productivity goes down. There is no actual mechanism to find out how much an employee is flooded with tasks. The work has to be equally distributed among the employees and everyone should know about the load each one handles. For that there should be a good work management system inside the organization that helps you to organize your work with ease.

Lets see how a good work management system can improve the productivity:

  • Manage the tasks.

If you have 10 tasks to complete, you cannot perform all the tasks at a time. So it is necessary to prioritize the tasks and complete it in that order. For this the employees should be consistently clear about the priorities. Managers should be able to instruct and assign works to the team members based on priority.

  • Organize on a Calendar

Use a Calendar to organize your events so that you will never miss an event due to your busy schedule. It would be great if your calendar notifies you about your upcoming events.

  • Communicate effectively

Internal communication is the key in any organisation to manage the employees and their works. Emails are no more an effective medium for that any more. Unwanted emails eats a lot of your time and thereby reduces your productivity. What you need is a network within the organization that allows interactive communication.

  • Centralize your contents

Scattered contents are always annoying. Every time you need to search for contents in emails, your personal storage drives or in any other media is difficult and consumes a lot of your time.  You should have a centralized content management system where you can easily access, organize, manage and share your files.

  • Appreciate the hard work

Employees will be happy to work hard only if their work is appreciated. The achievements should be praised instantly, that will encourage and motivate the employees to put in more effort.

  • Reduce meetings

We belong to globalized workplace where our team members and clients can be dispersed anywhere in the world. Meetings kill most time of employees. Meetings are not always productive, frequent meetings will increase the overwhelmed feeling.

  • Give employees chance to express their opinion.

Employees should be allowed to provide constructive opinions. This can be done through opinion polls or discussion forums. Great ideas can come from anywhere as in the case of Post-It note, Band-Aid or the Traffic lights.

  • Work Collaboratively

Provide a more collaborative environment for the employees to work together. Collaboration will provide increased capacity and expertise to achieve more in less time.

Hence It is the high time to think about an awesome Work Management Application that can transform the way you work and keeps you on top of productivity.

Introducing Dotmach…!

07/05/2013

Hello Everybody…!

It’s our sincere pleasure to introduce “Dotmach”.  For the last six months we were working passionately on a  solution for a problem which is tried out by many companies over the years, the issue of managing team workflow.

So managing the workflow of a team working together and collaborate to achieve great things is always a pain. Nowadays, we use many tools to manage our work, Our data  is scattered on different services, another tool for communication, so bottom line is we are not in a single place  to manage our team and organize work. Going back and forth from one app to another to get things done kills productivity. People are frustrated using cumbersome applications and the pain point they face is the lack of simplicity. Also maintaining a work-life balance is not as easy as before due to the “busy-ness” in every one.

Even we also faced some challenges to manage the workflow during our last venture. So we thought about taking it. Numerous discussions and  brainstorming sessions  made our thoughts converged into taking a genuine attempt to do a simple work management tool “dotMach“, an unified application to perform internal communication and team collaboration in an effortless fashion.

The fire power behind Dotmach is a young, small and energetic team with a lot of passion to make a dent. Our team is bound with a vision to make an effortless and powerful work management tool.  Right now we are in the pipeline of a developer API and a simple yet agile mobile application. Probably within next couple of months we will deliver that too, as we know that mobile computing is far most important in today’s Work environment.

We are wholeheartedly thankful for our small list of beta users for their suggestions and  feedback which helped us to make the simplest UI. We’ve only Started to Scratch The Surface And we have a long journey ahead  the best way to make Dotmach better and better is with all of your feedback and we believe in that.

We invite you to join together in Dotmach and be a synergistically awesome team.
