One of the hardest things to do when running your own business is staying organized. If you don’t have a process for this, you are likely to get swept away into meaningless (or unprofitable) tasks. Recently I have started using a cool issue tracking software called DoneDone and I thought you might enjoy a quick tour!
Originally it was built for programmers and project managers to keep tabs on large website projects but once they re-launched it, the app became both simpler and more robust. It is now a great aid to any business owner who is looking to stay organized.
I like to think if it as a giant checklist that can be used by multiple people. These would surely be your employees but in some instances could also be your vendors or even customers. It keeps track of tasks or issues and alerts the right people at the right times when they need to do something.
It integrates with regular email so seamlessly that often people don’t even know they’re using it. However, you as the business owner have the satisfaction of knowing that the entire history of a project is being kept (so that you can refer to historical data whenever you need).
In the past these kinds of tools were hopelessly complicated and you needed a degree in rocket science just to install them. This doesn’t make much sense for tools that were supposed to simplify your life.
I have been lucky enough to meet and work along side some of the team that put this application together and just wanted to express my enthusiasm for this software. Kudos to knocking this one out of the park.
If you have any projects coming up (and as a business owner or manager I am sure you do) make sure to check out DoneDone.
