Can you believe that we just started a new decade? How crazy it is that time just swooshed its way on us? Looking back at these past few months, how well do you think you did in the aspect of reaching some of your goals, or rather completing your projects? Have you actually achieved some of them, or are you still on your way to meet your ends?
Either way, we all have struggled somehow, and we always tend to look for more efficient ways to fast-track the development of our work. And now is the best time to introduce yourself to some new tools that might help you develop your skills for your next projects and improve your work in the most convenient way as possible.
Here at Snappy Hand, learning is a never-ending process, and we are constantly looking for new tools that will further enhance our knowledge and skills, and deliver satisfaction to our customer’s doorsteps.
Below are some of the tools that we would like to share so you can see and try for yourself.
If you want to be aware of how much time you are spending in one project, Tick is the right app for you. This software allows you to track time and hit your budget so you could remain profitable. The good thing about this is you can make your time entry from anywhere – you can do it on your phone, on your watch, tablet, or desktop. It is effective and easy to use with just three simple steps. Select a project that has been organized by your client, select the task, and then enter your time. For each time that you enter, Tick will give you a real-time update so you can monitor and identify if there are any issues in your projects. This will help you to avoid lose time and money.
When it comes to project management and organization of files in any size, Trello is one of the leading software in the market today. Trello uses a board which represents the projects, and within the board are cards which represent the tasks. These cards contain the list of your progression in that particular project. This software is useful especially to teams that collaborate on the same project because everyone can view the development and still identify the remaining things that still need to be done. And because of its label features, your search will be simplified and narrowed down so you can work on your project easier and faster.
Don’t you find it exhausting, switching from app to app just to get a task done? It’s causing you confusion, and it takes a lot of your time, when really you should be focusing on the one task that matters the most. Don’t worry because Zapier is here!
Zapier is a platform that connects various apps together to systemize your workflows easily. It also allows you to have access to task history, import or export via Google Sheets, connected accounts, and so on.
To automate a user’s web applications, Zapier is using blueprints that are called Zaps, which are like memories for a task that you constantly repeat. They pick up what you are trying to do over and over, and they take care of the job that you wish to do. Like Trello, Zapier also uses dashboard to manage the apps that you want to involve, as well as your zaps.
Flock is a web-based collaboration software which allows you to unify with your team through communication, file-sharing, and productivity functions. Integrated with Google Drive, this software gives you the power to access and share any files in your drive. You will also get update notifications, event invites, and reminders on Flock through Google Calendar.
This messaging app is so convenient to use that you can even set your meetings with your team or clients through audio or video calls, whether it is one-on-one or a group call. It also features a screen-sharing function so you could make your presentations or discuss the report with your teammates to keep them updated wherever you are.
Another feature of Flock is that they have a security feature that ensures all of your files and conversations are safe from potential hacks or breach.
Have you ever wished for a faster way of explaining things or giving out instructions in just one take, instead of answering a very long email chain? Loom is the solution for you.
With this screen recording app, you will have a better way of communicating easily with your team for conducting their trainings, or answering some of your clients ‘questions and save a great deal of your time. Furthermore, the chances of you being misunderstood or misinterpreted is lesser because you’ll be able to explain it easier in actual words compared to written.
Reimagining your method and finding more ways to improve your work etiquette is one way of boosting up your creativity and productivity level. We hope that these tools will have a great impact on your development as we approach another year that has a lot in store for us.
