Trello is a free
This free Windows 8 task organizer lets you assign tasks to your team members and check the status accordingly. You can attach a file about the tasks or add descriptions along with a check list. As the assignee, to whom the task is assigned, completes one particular task, he can put a check on the respective task. The app sends a notification mail every time a task is completed, to keep you informed about the same. There’s also an Activity tab where you can see who is working on which task.
Trello is freely available in Productivity category of Windows Store. Let’s see how this app works.
Create, Organize tasks using this free Windows 8 Task Organizer app:
Trello is quite easy to use, however its various components and working will be better explained through an example. Once you launch the app you will be asked to create an account or use your Google account credentials to login to the app. Once you login, you will be presented with Boards and Cards. Let’s have a detailed look on this.
- Board: Here we can add a new project. In this example, I have taken a simple project of “Mom Dad’s Anniversary Planning” As shown below:
While creating a board, you can invite people you want to involve in the project. You can also pin this board on the Start screen as a tile and get notification updates.
- Once the board is created you can create Cards. Consider these cards as tasks, which will be assigned to various team members. A card contains a task description and attachments. Apart from that, you can also create a checklist in a card to keep track of the its progress.
- You can attach a document or image in the card, along with creating a checklist. Once the task is finished, you can click on Archive Card (the bottom flyout option) to mark it as done.
You can create as many cards as you want and assign tasks to multiple poeple. Likewise, you can create multiple Boards to accomplish various activities, either on your own or with the help of a team. This free Windows 8 task organizer tool gives an excellent way to organize your tasks, defining to-dos, and tracking the status via notifications. Try on your own to explore the app more.
