Many to-do apps do the identical factor similarly: Show an inventory of duties you examine off as every one is accomplished. Taskheat takes a unique method, permitting customers to modify between a standard list-based workflow and a flowchart the place comparable duties are linked in a visible manner to assist higher manage how issues get completed in actual life.
Obtainable on Mac, iPad, and iPhone for a one-time $10 in-app buy after a free 14-day trial, Taskheat contains a easy (if not solely intuitive) consumer interface. Initiatives are listed in a sidebar at left, whereas including a brand new activity is so simple as double-clicking within the right-hand space of the Flowchart or Checklist view. Identify the merchandise, then add non-compulsory notes, coloration coding, tags, due date, contact task, or location as desired.
After including two or extra duties, you may hyperlink them collectively by clicking the “connector outlet”—a small circle alongside the fitting fringe of the primary merchandise—and dragging it to another activity. (On cellular, that is completed by selecting from an inventory of dependent duties.) From this so-called “spaghetti” view, it’s simple to alter the course or solely take away a hyperlink in only a few clicks; duties can both allow or rely upon linked objects.
Two filters within the left-hand sidebar assist customers concentrate on crucial duties. Precise shows undelegated duties with no hyperlinks to incomplete objects at your present location—i.e., the stuff you may really do proper now—whereas At the moment reveals solely that which is at present in your plate.
An outline on the backside of the sidebar gives a chicken’s eye view of what number of duties are overdue, upcoming, don’t have any particular due date, and have been delegated to others.
Keep on activity with Taskheat
Though Taskheat works independently of different to-do checklist providers like Apple Reminders and Microsoft To Do, duties mechanically keep in sync as you progress between gadgets because of iCloud. The iPadOS model works roughly the identical as on macOS—apart from tapping the center proper edge to cover the sidebar—and the developer has completed job condensing the UI on iPhone as properly.
What actually holds Taskheat again in the meanwhile is the consumer interface, which is without delay too simplistic and never fairly intuitive sufficient. A great “getting began” tutorial at first launch would undoubtedly assist, if not a full walkthrough as a substitute of the iPad promo video at present on the developer’s web site.
Taskheat introduces a brand new method to activity administration, however there’s not sufficient steerage for these accustomed to conventional list-based to-do apps.
