Prioritizing My Tasks

Tasks are streaming in endlessly, but your time is limited. To focus on a small and manageable amount of related works at a given time and devote to them with more attention will help save your time without sacrificing the quality of work. In Tasifier, tasks that have been assigned to you are by priority listed in the To do, New and Pending lists of the My Tasks page. Tasks that have been assigned to you lately are automatically put under the New list. By evaluating your own schedule and the complexity of task, you can move the task to the Pending list for future processing, or to the To do list if you managed to tackle it soon. With this good practice, both the tasks and your time are well-managed.

We recommend users review the tasks you have every morning, prioritize them and follow the prioritized task list to work throughout the day. In Tasifier, prioritizing of tasks can be done easily by drag-and-drop, or via the popup menu.
