Has your assistant finished scanning the important stack of documents you gave her yesterday? Has your associate finished his part of the major project you’re working on as a team? If you used TaskAnt, you’d know the answers to those questions right now. The group to-do list web-app was developed to make life easier for people who frequently work in teams.
When you and your teammates sign up for TaskAnt, you can get started creating new tasks and setting deadlines right away. Assign specific jobs to other members of your team and determine the priority for each, knowing that any person working on the project can see and edit any task that’s listed. When you’ve been assigned a task by another teammate, it will show up in your TaskAnt inbox. Get to work on the task, or take it off your plate by assigning it to someone else. When you’ve completed the job at hand, click “Done” to let the whole group know. Certain tasks can also be assigned to “All project members,” allowing anyone to step up and get the job done. To get a broader view of everything that’s going on, browse all the tasks that have been assigned within a project. You can search by the creator, the status, or the person who has been assigned to get the task done.
One thing that makes TaskAnt different from other project management web-apps is that all project members are equal under the TaskAnt system. Although admins are the only users allowed to create new projects or invite project contributors, anyone who has been invited can create tasks, edit tasks, and complete tasks. Once a project is complete, an admin can mark the project as “Inactive” to signal its end.
