Eager to work more effectively as a team, but tired of the endless to-do lists that often come with group collaboration? Teamly is a productivity tool that simplifies things by encouraging groups to prioritize and focus on the tasks that really matter most. Rather than creating mile-long to-do lists and task sheets each day, groups that use Teamly are asked to write down a list of the five most important things they need to get done this day, week, and month. That’s it.
Whether you’re a manager, entrepreneur, or investor, or simply an employee at a company with a Teamly account, there’s little doubt that you’ll be able to get more done once you start using the application. Begin each morning by setting your five main priorities for the day, then get to work accomplishing those important tasks. Your manager can log in to his or her account to view what you and your colleagues are working on at any time. Not only that, but managers who use the site can also see how each employee is progressing in his tasks, lessening the number of times your boss is likely tap on your shoulder and ask how your assignments are coming along. Colleagues and bosses can also leave comments underneath any task, and you can print out reports that document all the work you’ve gotten done to hand over to your manager at any given time.
Teamly sends out daily progress report emails, prompting you to log in to the site to update the status of any projects you’ve recently finished. You can also mark certain tasks as private, to lessen the chances of sensitive information getting into the wrong hands. For managers, Teamly is a great way to give your employees autonomy while still being able to watch over all that’s going on. Employees and collaborators, meanwhile, will enjoy Teamly’s streamlined approach to getting things done.
