A warm welcome to due.work blog. We are delighted with how due.work has been going till now. Our users are delighted as due.work has improved their productivity by 200%. It is very thrilling to see how we have come to where we stand today. All the credits, efforts, and creation goes to the team! A big hurray!
It has not been long since our project management tool has hit the internet. After we have launched the product, it has been a successful replacement for multiple files, bookmarks, board works and the basic desk jobs. Due.work has helped our users in creating a better work-life since the first day.
But that is not what we're going to talk today. Despite our pricing, features, and user-friendly access, we have something more to announce today. As the title suggests, it is a bit and a little bit more about your favourite due.work.
We are getting positive responses from our users; we thought of doing something that does justice to the application and benefits our users. With the sole motive of making life better and increase productivity, we thought of taking a deep dive into due.work.
Thereby, we are going to introduce you to a blog series all about due.work and its features.
What's the plan?
The idea is simple! We are making a series of five blogs. each of these five blogs will demonstrate the features and uses of the application. We will tell you every detail about the usage and methods so that you can improve your daily work schedule. The entire series will be by parts.
Are you ready to dive in? Let's begin.
Start fresh by building your workspace.
Previously you have known about the basics of our work management tool. It is now time that we dig deeper into the functionalities of due.work.
Like the other web management tools, you have to create your account initially, to be directed to the Workspace area. You can create several workspaces, and add multiple projects in each of the workspaces.
Before starting the new plan
Once you 'Add a new project', due.work will give you two options:
- start from scratch, and
- begin with a template
The first implies the user to create a workspace choosing the header colour, and a project name. The latter, on the other hand, has templates for categories like Sales and Marketing, Social media and Software development. You can choose anyone depending on the type of workspace you are creating.
Now that you know the little details of creating a workspace, let's dig further into Due.work.
This particular section falls under the category where you can track tasks and record the progress. In Today's Task, you can list the things which are planned for today. For instance, let's say you have assignments to complete, save the date for the next meeting, visit clients and a lot which is hard to remember. With due.work, you list them down in today's task and complete them as per plan.
My task brings all of your tasks in one place. The tasks you wish to fulfil today or have planned for the next day, My Task keeps all of them in a track.
Next 7 days Tasks
Due.work has a fantastic feature that pays full attention to every task. After creating a task, you can set the time by which you want to complete the task. Or, more correctly, you can pre-plan your task schedules for the next seven days. Due.work will remind you every day about the pending tasks which you have set.
To edit the tasks with more details, we have the subtask option for you. After creating the task, click on it to see a dialogue box appearing on the screen. It is the part where you can edit and add information to the task which you have priorly added in the list.
You can select the task details, assign members, add flags, set duration period along with the start and end dates. If the task is very urgent, you can set it to the high priority section. Why? Once configured with a high priority, your task will have a red flag which reflects in your workspace and as a quick reminder.
You will see a section called ''add a subtask'' once you click on the task created. The subtask is the minute detailing of your task. For instance, if you have set a task about your new project, subtasks will hold the topics that you want to cover. The important part is, it will keep more details in one task, which means, less space with more information in your workspace.
How can you view the tasks?
There are three modes which you can use to see your tasks.
The List View
The tasks that you have already planned will appear in listed order under the List view in your workspace. If you are comfortable with the List view, you can surely use that.
The Board View
The board view helps you in a better glance at all your pending and on-going work schedules. No matter what role you're playing in your team, with the Kanban Board view, you can enhance your performance effortlessly. With our three default statuses, 'Pending', 'In Progress' and 'Completed', you can initialise your tasks and arrange them according to your need. If not happy with these three, you can create your board status and continue working.
Yeah, all the above facilities are quite similar to the other tools on the internet. But no, Due.work supports full customisation. Let me explain.
Once you have created the tasks individually, you can edit them as per your need. Each assignment, irrespective of their statuses, holds the permission of editing. You can open each task in a detail view and assign labels and members, add start and end date along with a specific duration.
The Timeline View
In the timeline view, you will get every task of yours in a list form, but with time durations on the left side. You can access the calendar and set durations as per your tasks.
Our first blog of the 'Deep Dive:' series comes to an end. Now that you know the basic functionalities of due.work create your workspace and proceed effortlessly in your life.
