  • Corporate task and Waiting For list technology or tools? Are there any?

    There really isn't any difference in workflow between a company and a person. Both collect various inputs, process and organize, do and review, right?

    I was wondering if anyone knows of good software for a small company that could handle this. People could throw emails, paper, etc into an inbox and also allow clients and customers in with phone calls, email, paper mail, etc. Then someone processes it and organizes: sends paper the correct place, puts things into task lists, waiting for list, etc. Anyone know of a good "list manager" for a corporation though? Does Outlook handle that--we use OUtlook for our internal email with an exchange server. Can you have a "corporate task list" in Outlook that lots of people would be able to work with? Can it track who put things in when and who checked them off?

    What I'd like is to be able to enter a more complex item into the system and have it hang there until someone checks it off. Ideally people along the path could leave notes. Due dates? Not sure but probably a good idea.

    I think you can try an Android app "Do it tomorrow" for all your task based tracking and lists. Living life by lists is something that you won't miss a thing ever to do. I read a book about CV writing once and there the time management is held as one of the key factors of being successful in life. This is the book that I read.
    On the other note, if you use Evernote to its full capacity it will serve all your needs, since it is the tool which is both mobile and desktop based and the synchronization between them is super smooth.

      Take a look at Wunderlist, particularly pro accounts.

        ...but be wary...?!

        The only caution I would add is to quote (paraphrase) David Allen by saying "Whenever two or more people are responsible for something, no one is..." If it were me, especially if it really is a small company, I'd get everyone to have their own task lists, etc. - but perhaps you're just talking more at a project management level so that people can share project milestones, etc. at a higher level.

        In that case, I'd vote for shared notebooks in Evernote...

          This is of course completely correct. Not only that, but there is a lot of inelegant software, some of it quite pricy, out there that doesn't make things better. Shared Evernote notebooks are a good alternative to Wunderlist, probably better for some things. Either way, you can fail forward fast on the cheap.
