Almost all of us are snowed under with tasks every day and waste too much time on organizing them. Luckily for you, the Internet (and The Next Web) is a great source of tools that will help you manage your schedule easily. Check out this list of nine new tools that will boost your productivity on a daily basis:
1. Hiri – A desktop email app that improves your workday
Every day, your inbox gets stuffed with tons of emails. It really takes time to read and answer all of them, especially with a busy schedule. What if you had a tool that would help you separate what you need to do from what you just need to know about? Just imagine how much time you could save! Well, good news: there is a tool for that – Hiri.
The founders of Hiri say that it is “an email client that helps you master the art of email,” and when you try it out, you will surely agree with them! More than that, if you are an Outlook user, just install Hiri and it will automatically be synced with it.
With Hiri, you will not only divide your emails into different sections, but you will be able to actually deal with them easily: reply, delegate, archive, delete, add them to your to-do list or set a reminder. Helpful, right?
Moreover, Hiri has a dashboard that reminds you not to check your email too often. Since statistics show that people check their inbox around 96 times a day, this dashboard will help you save your precious time.
Since Hiri boasts a few more useful features and is FREE (the premium packages are very cheap, ranging from $2 to $5), it’s definitely worth giving this tool a try!
2. Taskworld – Visual task management with chat and performance analytics
Organizing, organizing, organizing…yup, if you master it, you will shine! …And if you don’t organize your tasks properly, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll get lost in them, forget important things and work overtime.
Visual task management, team messaging and project planning are packed into one tool.
Not only will you be able to manage your schedule, but you will also get your results immediately since Taskworld has a performance chart included.
