rsidneysmith Q1: What’s your favorite Task Manager app? #prodchat https://t.co/Nf70dqyQ4d Thu May 11 00:10:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A1: Everyone know that! It’s @rememberthemilk! ;-) #prodchat Thu May 11 00:10:48 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A1: @Todoist has become my go to application #prodchat Thu May 11 00:11:04 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A1 That’s an easy one. My task management app of choice is @Toodledo #prodchat Thu May 11 00:11:08 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith *Everyone knows that! #correction #prodchat Thu May 11 00:11:48 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A1 The only task manager app we used in the office was Outlook tasks, and even that was a while ago. #ProdChat Thu May 11 00:11:53 +0000 2017
xianfox A1: @todoist is my choice. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:11:59 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A1a: Although, I do track some things in @trello @asana, and @habitica, for work and self-care respectively. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:13:02 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @JKatzaman So, how do you track your tasks today? #prodchat Thu May 11 00:13:22 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A1a: I have a client that uses Microsoft Planner for tasks and one that relies on SharePoint #prodchat Thu May 11 00:14:08 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @ArtGelwicks That sounds like an interesting setup! #prodchat Thu May 11 00:14:55 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q2: What is one feature you couldn’t work without in your task manager? #prodchat https://t.co/qOvjV3Cb6B Thu May 11 00:15:01 +0000 2017
FocusCopy A1: Re-discovering Evernote. Evaluating its task tracking capabiities. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:15:14 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2: In RTM, I couldn’t live without tags! It’s such a fundamental component of the way I slice-and-dice my tasks in diff. views. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:15:44 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @FocusCopy Good day, Stacey! Great to have you on #prodchat! Thu May 11 00:15:57 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks SharePoint has some solid task tracking capabilities and Office 365 with Planner is a nice Microsoft based kanban #prodchat Thu May 11 00:16:03 +0000 2017
xianfox A2: Todoist’s filters really make the app shine. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:16:12 +0000 2017

jayd_1992 RT @ArtGelwicks: SharePoint has some solid task tracking capabilities and Office 365 with Planner is a nice Microsoft based kanban #prodchat Thu May 11 00:16:20 +0000 2017
kjaymiller Right now it’s @Stay_Sorted but I’m an analog productivityist. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:16:37 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A2: The natural language capture of tasks and reminders has proved invaluable in @Todoist #prodchat Thu May 11 00:16:42 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A2 There are several deal breakers, but if a task app didn’t support repeating tasks, I would not consider it. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:17:34 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A2 There are several deal breakers, but if a task app didn’t support repeating tasks, I would not consider it. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:17:34 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks @kjaymiller @Stay_Sorted I keep my Midori Travelers notebook for offline tracking. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:17:52 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @FocusCopy I’ll be very interested to hear about your evaluation of Evernote as a task manager! :-) #prodchat Thu May 11 00:18:08 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DrFrankBuck You’re the king of repeating tasks, Frank! :-) #prodchat Thu May 11 00:18:37 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A2 If I couldn’t email into it, that would be another #prodchat Thu May 11 00:18:40 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A2a: @Todoist Karma has proven to be a great motivator for me. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:19:17 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck @rsidneysmith Ah, yes! Think it once and let the system take care of it from there. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:19:43 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q3: What platform/device(s) does your task manager support? #prodchat https://t.co/HkN2pN8f8s Thu May 11 00:20:01 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @ArtGelwicks @todoist For those who don’t know, explain @todoist Karma for the group. :) #prodchat Thu May 11 00:20:14 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A2 The need to set reminders is essential. That’s how I beat myself over the head to stay on track. #ProdChat Thu May 11 00:20:14 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A3: Windows 10, web, Android, and iOS for @Todoist #prodchat Thu May 11 00:20:27 +0000 2017
xianfox @ArtGelwicks @todoist I’m really learning to like the karma thing too. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:20:36 +0000 2017
ProSourcePrint A2: Alerts. And yet I’m using @asana so… #prodchat Thu May 11 00:20:53 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A3: All of them! @rememberthemilk has Web and then apps for all the major platforms, plus integrations with many other software. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:21:07 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks @Todoist karma is an accumulating score you gather as you complete tasks and lose as things slide. It’s a way of measuring #prodchat Thu May 11 00:21:08 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks your progress as you move through your list. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:21:19 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A3 @toodledo is web based, so it works on an computer. Has apps for Android and iOS #prodchat Thu May 11 00:21:29 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @ArtGelwicks @todoist @todoist is also on Mac. Just no Outlook for Mac integration, which is sad. :( #prodchat Thu May 11 00:21:37 +0000 2017
prodchat RT @ArtGelwicks: your progress as you move through your list. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:21:55 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks At certain thresholds you earn achievements similar to video game achievements. Right now I’m Master working to Grand Master #prodchat Thu May 11 00:22:55 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks @rsidneysmith @todoist Good catch. I’m not a Mac user so I missed that one. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:23:43 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @ArtGelwicks That’s the kind of motivation I need with self-care and why I use @habitica for that! #gamification #prodchat Thu May 11 00:23:54 +0000 2017
ProSourcePrint A3: web based so… Also iOS and Android I believe. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:24:11 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q4: What are some of the other good features in your favorite task manager? #prodchat https://t.co/irdVOengmw Thu May 11 00:25:00 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks The fact they take away points when you procrastinate is a big reinforcement to me. I hate to lose points. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:25:26 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A4: @rememberthemilk’s latest feature of being able to smart add tasks from any app by keyboard shortcut. Amazing! #prodchat Thu May 11 00:26:02 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A4: Smart add and smart lists in @rememberthemilk are also so slick. It makes capture on any device a breeze! #prodchat Thu May 11 00:26:31 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A4 I can include full details of the task so I leave little to chance. #ProdChat Thu May 11 00:26:35 +0000 2017
prodchat RT @ArtGelwicks: The fact they take away points when you procrastinate is a big reinforcement to me. I hate to lose points. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:26:41 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A4 having a note field that each task that is prominent and included with the free version of the software. @toodledo #prodchat Thu May 11 00:26:57 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks @Todosit has extensions for Chrome and Gmail. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:26:59 +0000 2017
ProSourcePrint A4: Flexibility. Don’t lock us into YOUR idea of a task manager. Give us options. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:27:10 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A4 Voice input @toodledo #prodchat Thu May 11 00:27:26 +0000 2017
kjaymiller @ArtGelwicks @Stay_Sorted I love them so much I made my a passport size into a wallet #prodchat Thu May 11 00:27:45 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks @Workflowy is another great task tool that only lacks reminders to push it over the edge #prodchat Thu May 11 00:27:46 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A4: Also, the ability to integrate tasks into Google Calendar so I can click an icon and see tasks that need to be done today. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:27:52 +0000 2017
FocusCopy Sounds like I should buy stock in Rememeber the Milk! Does it walk on water too?
#prodchat
Thu May 11 00:28:13 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @FocusCopy If it could, I bet it would, Stacey! And it’s implementing new features soon that are just simply killer! #prodchat Thu May 11 00:28:55 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A4 The ability to shift items I didn’t get done today to tomorrow or another day of my choosing in mass. @toodledo #prodchat Thu May 11 00:29:01 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks Remember the milk has come a long way over the years. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:29:17 +0000 2017
kjaymiller A2 the ability to get in and out quickly. I want to use the tool, not live in it. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:29:47 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q5: How much does your task management app cost? #prodchat https://t.co/YLDI28d9Gl Thu May 11 00:30:01 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A5 I use the free version of @toodledo #prodchat Thu May 11 00:31:03 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A5: $2.50 per month for premium on @Todoist #prodchat Thu May 11 00:31:07 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A5: Free for the basic app. Pro is about $39 per year, I believe…gives you Outlook sync, unlimited mobile app sync + >features. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:31:54 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck I think the most popular paid version of @toodledo is around $25 #prodchat Thu May 11 00:31:56 +0000 2017
ProSourcePrint A5: Free with a paid version. The free option has all the bells and whistles too. Nice! #prodchat Thu May 11 00:32:24 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith I think that’s $3.33 per month, or $0.10 per day. Reasonable price to pay for the features and ongoing support/deve… https://t.co/lhS259KoK0 Thu May 11 00:33:00 +0000 2017
halduauthor A5: I use the free version of todoist #prodchat Thu May 11 00:33:08 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @halduauthor Well, hey, stranger! How’re you, Ben? Glad you could make it. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:33:21 +0000 2017
FocusCopy I’m assuming we’re all going PRO here, so Omnifocus is about $80. Evernote is less, but not finding it a good task manager. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:33:29 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @FocusCopy Evernote is great to integrate with a task manager (like Todoist, Remember the Milk, Nozbe, etc.). #prodchat Thu May 11 00:34:18 +0000 2017
halduauthor @rsidneysmith Ha ha, yeah I thought I would poke my head, sorry life has been crazy, but I’m doing well #prodchat Thu May 11 00:34:25 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck @FocusCopy I agree I live @Evernote but don’t see it as a task manager. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:34:36 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @halduauthor No need to apologize. Glad to have you. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:34:41 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q6: What is the learning curve for your task app of choice? How long did it take you? #prodchat https://t.co/9m6V6R5cl0 Thu May 11 00:35:00 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck Typo… Love not Live. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:35:08 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks Personally I prefer productivity tools that have some sort of revenue model strong enough to support them over time. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:35:12 +0000 2017
kjaymiller A3 well paper planning is universal but since we are talking digital it is iOS only right now. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:35:16 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DrFrankBuck @FocusCopy @evernote I know I’m beating a dead horse here, but I love that I can schedule a reminder i… https://t.co/vauDHVO0sP Thu May 11 00:35:27 +0000 2017
halduauthor @rsidneysmith If you can fix me a dime on the ground bad everyday, then you’re good! #prodchat Thu May 11 00:36:02 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @ArtGelwicks Yes, I don’t want to invest in a task manager only to see it go under. I need to be able to trust it. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:36:07 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A6: It takes a little time to get the most out of @Todoist but once you master the natural language syntax you’re in business #prodchat Thu May 11 00:36:07 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A5 I bought Outlook through a government offer last fall. I think the download and backup CD came to about $25. #ProdChat Thu May 11 00:36:15 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A6: Remember the Milk takes about 20-30 minutes of education and practice and you should be good to go! #prodchat Thu May 11 00:36:38 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A6 For me, there was no learning curve. After 10 years using Outlook, I had a system and knew what I needed @toodledo to do. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:36:49 +0000 2017
halduauthor @rsidneysmith Always glad to be here. I am settling into a new job with more normal hours so I’ll try to be around. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:37:08 +0000 2017
ProSourcePrint A6: @asana curve is fairly low. Easy to get a good idea of how it works. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:37:27 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @halduauthor Congrats on the new job, Ben! And, glad you’ll be normalizing your work schedule. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:37:30 +0000 2017

halduauthor @ArtGelwicks I agree with that. Let’s not for iQtell and how that all went up and down. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:38:13 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks (Pours one out for Springpad) #prodchat Thu May 11 00:38:44 +0000 2017
halduauthor A6: I don’t think it took to long, but it’s been a while so I don’t remember that well #prodchat Thu May 11 00:39:02 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @halduauthor @ArtGelwicks IQTell had a momentary crisis of faith but they never actually shut down. There have been… https://t.co/FcKaEJBhSW Thu May 11 00:39:10 +0000 2017
halduauthor @rsidneysmith @DrFrankBuck @FocusCopy @evernote 🔨🐎#prodchat Thu May 11 00:39:54 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q7: Does the app provide collaborative features? If so, how do they work? #prodchat https://t.co/C4DPbku3oc Thu May 11 00:40:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @ArtGelwicks Prozac’tly. :-( #prodchat Thu May 11 00:40:01 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A7: Remember the Milk does have the ability to share tasks and task lists. It’s not a PM or collaboration technology. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:40:52 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A6 I don’t recall learning curve for Outlook tasks being that steep. It was tougher to learn the preferred office method for use. #ProdChat Thu May 11 00:40:55 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A7 The paid version of @toodledo has collaboration. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:40:55 +0000 2017
ProSourcePrint A7: @asana has great collaboration features. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:41:23 +0000 2017
halduauthor @rsidneysmith Thanks, it will be nice #prodchat Thu May 11 00:41:27 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A7 Even with th free version, you can add tasks to someone’s list via email. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:41:47 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A7a: Those RTM collaborative features come in the free version, BTW. :-) #prodchat Thu May 11 00:42:24 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A8: @Todoist allows for collaboration, sharing, and comments on tasks. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:42:41 +0000 2017
FocusCopy OF does not play too well with others. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:42:45 +0000 2017
halduauthor A7: umm, I think so, but I’ve never really looked into it. I use trello for collaboration #prodchat Thu May 11 00:42:59 +0000 2017
chriswaterguy @rsidneysmith A1: SimpleTask for Android. Uses Todo.txt format. Pros: I have full control, flexibility. One field per task. #ProdChat Thu May 11 00:43:22 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A7 Outlook tasks was mapped to our individual PCs. The only drawback was no more than one at a time could be in tasks. #ProdChat Thu May 11 00:43:51 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q8: Is the app built for using as a GTD list manager for projects, next-actions, and others? #prodchat https://t.co/8K65LXyc2A Thu May 11 00:45:00 +0000 2017
halduauthor @rsidneysmith @ArtGelwicks Unfortunately they lost me, and I really liked them for a while #prodchat Thu May 11 00:45:01 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @halduauthor @ArtGelwicks I hear the new interface is going to be really snazzy! But, I hear ya. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:45:23 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck Q8 Yes, @toodledo is easily configurable for @gtd #prodchat Thu May 11 00:46:14 +0000 2017
xianfox A8: Todoist works well as a GTD task manager. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:46:27 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A9: Yes, RTM is built for GTD. It was one of the first to commit to making their software match the needs of GTD practitioners. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:46:44 +0000 2017
halduauthor @rsidneysmith @ArtGelwicks Maybe I’ll have to look at it… 😏#prodchat Thu May 11 00:46:47 +0000 2017
FocusCopy A8: OmniFocus is great for GTD stuff. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:46:51 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @FocusCopy Except you cannot have multiple contexts for the same task. :-( #prodchat Thu May 11 00:47:12 +0000 2017
halduauthor Wasn’t there supposed to be a fabled gtd branded task manager coming a couple years ago? #prodchat Thu May 11 00:48:03 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks I’m hesitant to use a tool focused on a single methodology. It’s too easy to get tunnel vision. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:48:59 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @halduauthor Yes. David Allen Company realized the technology wasn’t there yet. I’m sure they’re still exploring. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:49:20 +0000 2017
chriswaterguy @rsidneysmith A2: Context and project tags. #tasklists #ProdChat Thu May 11 00:49:22 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q9: What is a feature you wished your task management app added? #prodchat https://t.co/eipwkN9uPg Thu May 11 00:50:00 +0000 2017
halduauthor @rsidneysmith And all the other comments companies are probably glad about that #prodchat Thu May 11 00:50:28 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @halduauthor @FocusCopy It’s not explicit. But, why couldn’t you have multiple contexts for the same next action? #prodchat Thu May 11 00:50:29 +0000 2017
chriswaterguy This is why I stop using most todo apps – too slow, too many steps, too many fields. #ProdChat https://t.co/oiZuhPEQxl Thu May 11 00:51:09 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck Q9 Better functionality emailing OUT of it. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:51:37 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A9: Some improvements on the Android app carrying over features from the web would be nice for @Todoist. That and expanding Karma #prodchat Thu May 11 00:51:41 +0000 2017
xianfox A9: Calendar management. I’ve seen to many calendar apps add task lists and do it poorly. Let’s try the other way around. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:51:41 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A9: I really, really want an ability to link several tasks to another task (e.g., project). I know you can do subtasks, but… #prodchat Thu May 11 00:51:50 +0000 2017
halduauthor @rsidneysmith @FocusCopy Oh you could, and I think you should, but I wasn’t sure David ever indicated that was a thing #prodchat Thu May 11 00:51:51 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @halduauthor @FocusCopy Yeah, it’s not explicit. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:52:12 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A9: My workaround is using the task URL of the project and putting that in the URL field of the related tasks. But… https://t.co/m2wFb8vquS Thu May 11 00:53:21 +0000 2017
halduauthor A9: I really whish there was a slot CJ email to task ability. I use iCloud, so there isn’t a great way to make it happen #prodchat Thu May 11 00:53:39 +0000 2017
FocusCopy @rsidneysmith @halduauthor Tags can replace context. It takes an extra step but I know where I am at any given time… https://t.co/1yUcPjfL0D Thu May 11 00:54:35 +0000 2017
chriswaterguy @rsidneysmith A3: Todo.txt runs on every platform, AFAIK. (If no satisfactory app, can always open the file in a text editor.) #ProdChat Thu May 11 00:55:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q10: What’s one task manager you’re going to check out after today’s #ProdChat? https://t.co/CcTguwMDd8 Thu May 11 00:55:00 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @FocusCopy @halduauthor That’s good to know. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:55:02 +0000 2017
halduauthor Wow, my autocorrect is working wonders today 🙄#prodchat Thu May 11 00:55:03 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck @rsidneysmith what if you kept your @gtd projects list in @Evernote, listed tasks associated with the project in the Evernote… #prodchat Thu May 11 00:55:09 +0000 2017
FocusCopy A9: I’d love it if OF were a little more integrative with other apps. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:55:54 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck @rsidneysmith… Note, and used @taskclone to get the tasks into RTM? #prodchat Thu May 11 00:56:20 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DrFrankBuck @gtd @evernote That’s an idea I’ve toyed with. I could keep a note for each project, then create a tab… https://t.co/r7GlyYKsBx Thu May 11 00:56:25 +0000 2017
ArtGelwicks A10: I’ll be sticking with @Todoist but I’ll take another look at @rememberthemilk #prodchat Thu May 11 00:56:38 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DrFrankBuck @TaskClone RTM has a direct integration with Evernote. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:56:39 +0000 2017

FocusCopy A10: I’m going to check out RTM. I was concerned about the support, but it’s proved it’s staying power. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:57:18 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A10: Notational Velocity is on my list to check out. (I know no one mentioned it today, but…) But, I’ll be sticking with RTM! #prodchat Thu May 11 00:57:50 +0000 2017

halduauthor A10 I’ll go look at iQtells new interface when it comes out, but I’m afraid todoist probably has my for as long as they survive #prodchat Thu May 11 00:58:16 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck Great chat tonight! #prodchat Thu May 11 00:58:26 +0000 2017

halduauthor Thanks for the chat @rsidneysmith, great as always #prodchat Thu May 11 00:59:25 +0000 2017
FocusCopy A:10 Anything with a name like Notational Velocity scares me. How long will they be around? #prodchat Thu May 11 00:59:25 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @FocusCopy Hahaha. They’ve been around a long time and will be for a long while. It’s not for the faint of heart. Mainly coders. #prodchat Thu May 11 00:59:50 +0000 2017
FocusCopy Great chat, great topic! See some of you next week. #prodchat Thu May 11 01:00:34 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Thanks, #productivity enthusiasts, for attending #prodchat! See you in next week! @prodchat https://t.co/MXcUKWaAt0 Thu May 11 01:01:00 +0000 2017
chriswaterguy @rsidneysmith A6: Learning curve for Todo.txt is steeper than most. Got the basics straight away, but still learning >1 yr later. #ProdChat Thu May 11 01:03:30 +0000 2017

craigthusiast I missed #ProdChat tonight, but I’ll chime in to say I’m really happy with Todoist, but I’d be keen to learn more about Evernote and RTM. Thu May 11 01:06:59 +0000 2017
chriswaterguy @rsidneysmith A8: Yes. #Todo.txt #ProdChat Thu May 11 01:09:21 +0000 2017
