35 Task Management Innovations

From Student Collaboration Networks to Productivity-Focused Apps

— September 22, 2016 — Lifestyle
These task management innovations range from student collaboration networks to email-sorting virtual assistants that are designed to boost organization while saving users time in the process. Whether aiding with time management, productivity or organization, these products and mobile platforms make staying on top of professional or educational tasks a breeze for those living life on the go.

As Millennial professionals struggle to balance a packed work schedule with social commitments and other daily tasks, app developers are taking notice and are targeting this demographic with comprehensive apps or email extensions that make deadlines achievable for the masses.

Additional innovations in the task management realm include analog examples like goal-oriented journals and ultra-organized planners that appeal to stationary lovers who prefer checking off traditional to-do lists rather than keeping digital notes.
