Got ideas? How to use Producteev this summer

Photo_24

We’ve been focusing a lot on online collaboration and team task management, and we’ve got a few more lined up this month.

This summer, however, is going to be all about personal productivity and creative, individual and family use cases. Michele K. actually does use Producteev as a packing list and to check off items in preparation for travel.

You may have a really neat way to organize to-dos on Producteev. Leave us a comment below, we’d love to hear your ideas!

If you’re using Producteev, you’re probably a productivity guru. Perhaps you’re so busy multi-tasking that you’re not even aware of it!

Here are some signs of the Inner Guru:

  • You know the ins & outs of the web app, including what a Smart Filter is
  • You use Producteev on multiple platforms or devices
  • You have your own unique system for getting things done
  • You are simply awesome at task management

If this is you, we want to help share your infinite wisdom with the community. Add an article to the Productivity Gurus forum.

The five best entries this month get free swag and account credits.

Other than the office, where do YOU get things done?

Work happens. More and more often, it’s happening in “non-traditional” places. That’s why we built a platform to help manage your to-dos anywhere. 

Out of curiosity, where do you feel the most productive? Feel free to let us know if it’s some other exotic location.
