2019. Microsoft integrated its personal organizer app To-Do with Outlook


Microsoft has released a new version of its Microsoft To-Do personal organizer. It features full customization of color scheme and background, 2-factor authorization, smart recommendations for creating today's task list. Finally, the integration with Outlook is implemented: the Flagged Email list in the app displays flagged messages from Outlook.com. Also, it features integration with project management service Microsoft Planner, voice assistants Alexa and Cortana. At the end of the blog announcement, Microsoft hinted the closure of the Wunderlist service, which was acquired by the company 4 years ago and became the base on which To-Do was built. After that the Wunderlist founder Christian Reber asked Microsoft (via Twitter) to buy it back to make an open-source product.


2019. Task management software Asana launched Workload to help prevent burnout


Asana, the task management platform, launched Workload, a new feature for its paying users that aims to help prevent burnout. It does so by making it easier for businesses to fairly distribute work across their teams and, if necessary, redistribute it. The general idea behind Workload is that it provides a central view of how much more work any given team can currently handle. Team members can customize their own workload based on criteria like points or hours and, maybe most importantly, set capacity limits. It’s no secret that burnout is a major problem and, according to Asana’s own research, 80% of global knowledge workers say they consistently feel overworked and close to burnout.




2019. Microsoft brought its To-Do app to Mac



Microsoft is bringing its To-Do app to the Mac. It will support most of the core features right away, including the ability to create and manage tasks, work offline, share lists, utilize tags and more. It also will integrate with Microsoft Outlook to pull in your “Flagged” email list and will support integration with Planner soon, allowing you to see any items assigned to you. The Mac version also takes advantage of its new platform to offer a handful of keyboard shortcuts, like ⌘2 to minimize the app so it only displays the list view, and ⌘1 to return to viewing all your lists. You can click on a task’s text to edit it directly from the list view, as well.


2018. Trello acquired business process automation tool Butler



Trello, the collaboration tool owned by Atlassian, announced an acquisition of light-weight business process automation tool Butler. What Butler brings to Trello is the power of automation, stringing together a bunch of commands to make something complex happen automatically. Over the years, teams have discovered that by automating processes on Trello boards with the Butler Power-Up, they could spend more time on important tasks and be more productive. Butler helps teams codify business rules and processes, taking something that might take ten steps to accomplish and automating it into one click. This means that Trello can be more than a static organizational tool. Instead, it can move into the realm of light-weight business process automation.


2018. Google released Google Tasks mobile app



Google introduced a new app that ties into its suite of productivity applications: Google Tasks. The app offers you a dedicated place to create, view and edit your task list and to-dos, including those created from within the new Gmail or from Google Calendar.  The app itself is a fairly standard take on to-do lists. You can create and manage your task list in the app, and break down tasks into subtasks. The drag-and-drop interface lets you prioritize your tasks, and you can set a “due date” for reminders on those you don’t want to forget. What makes the app worthwhile is that you’re able to trace a task back to its source email in Gmail, and view them on your Google Calendar.
