Task Management Software

"This software rocks golden. Have been looking for this thingy a long time now. My search is over."
Tommy Hofton -

" Although I use Microsoft Outlook I found that the task tracking in your software has a better view and layout than Outlook. I like the way that icons can be used for different categories, and the different colours that are used in the main task list make it easier to get an overall picture of outstanding issues."
Christopher Jones -

Make your goals SMART

address book program. Main view of address book program.

All companies and organizations have different kinds of goals. Goals can be long-term and short-term, specific and undefined, easy and difficult, etc. However, the point of goal setting is to achieve them. That is why your goals must be SMART if you want to succeed within your company or organization. SMART goals must include the following characteristics:

  • Specific: Goals must be clear and specific. If you set such kind of goal to the employees then they have a clear picture of things you expect from them.
  • Measurable: If the goals are not measurable, then you can't control whether your employees make any progress towards the goals accomplishment.
  • Achievable: Goals must be achievable and the time frame of their accomplishment must be realistic, so your employees can accomplish them in estimated time frame.
  • Relevant: By Pareto's 80/20 rule, 80% of employees' productivity comes from 20% of their activities. So, the goals must be relevant as they impact on employee's activities and get your company closer to your aim.
  • Time-bound: Goals must have start, finish and due date. When you set deadlines to goals, you help your employees to avoid procrastination and motivate them to accomplish their goal before the due date.

By developing SMART goals with your employees you can avoid procrastination and reach the success in your work.

However, you need a tool where you can keep your goals and tasks with details. Such tool is VIP Team To Do List. It allows creating a task list, setting priorities, setting deadlines, adding notes to the tasks, setting reminder, so you won't forget about the task or goal you need to accomplish first. Also, if you need to send notifications or tasks to the employees, you can do it via e-mail by the help of VIP Team To Do List and save your time.
