We live our lives on the go, often rushing from one task to another and hoping we’re on time and remember everything we need. But being well-organized can help cut through the noise and keep productivity levels at their highest. When we have a clear idea of what the day entails, we can plan better and show up prepared every day.
If lugging around bulky agenda books, business card holders, and folders jammed with documents isn’t working out for you, maybe it’s time to simplify your daily processes and download a few apps that can help simplify your work life.
CamCard Business allows users to manage contacts, appointments, and activities. You simply scan the business card, and from there, you can edit or add fields, activities, and tags. Once finished, you’re brought to a Company Cardholder screen that displays your other contacts.
There are countless ways to organize your contacts just how you want them, allowing you to find exactly who you want without having to search through piles of business cards. You can create tasks with due dates, add notes, and even assign them to others if needed. CamCard keeps an ongoing record of to-dos and completed tasks, and you can even record activities and email them to a manager or colleagues.
Post-It notes are a thing of the past with Evernote. This app creates a cloud-based safe space for all of the thoughts you have throughout the day. Manage do-to lists, scan receipts, PDF documents, hand-written notes, and record voice memos within the app.
Evernote syncs with all of your devices, so what you need is with you wherever you go. In addition, the app allows for easy organization and has a search function to look up what you need quickly.
If you’re one of those people who have to tap “Forgot My Password” and change your login info so often you can’t keep tabs, then Dashlane is perfect for you. Along with keeping your logins safe and secure, Dashlane saves credit and debit card numbers as well as info for online forms.
Dashlane also has a bulk password changing function that makes it easy to change multiple passwords at once in the event of a significant data breach, making your day-to-day just a little bit easier.
Calendly is the easiest way to schedule meetings and manage appointments. You simply send a link, and the recipient books an available time that’s convenient for them directly on your calendar. You’ll get an email confirmation of the appointment, and you can even collect payment through the app, thanks to its integrations with Stripe and PayPal.
With Calendly, you don’t have to email back and forth to find a time that works best for everyone. Just be sure to keep your availability updated in the app.
Monday is a productivity app that manages all of your work: daily task management, project planning, brainstorming, communication, file sharing, and more. Its calendar integrates with Google Calendar, Outlook, and iCal, helping you manage your time by giving you an overview of all of your appointments. Additionally, you can time block your calendar, so no one disturbs you when it’s go-time.
You can customize weekly to-do lists, daily tasks, and collaboration tools so you won’t miss any deadlines.
Toggl is a tracking app that lets you track your time from anywhere while syncing all of your entries. You can start a timer on your phone and stop it from your desktop if you need. Toggl also has an idle detector that can recognize when you’ve stopped working.
There are several time management apps out there, but Toggl is a bit different. With Toggl, you can work with your team and keep track of how much time you have collectively worked on a project. You can tell whether a project was worth your commitment, saving you valuable time when you decide what projects to take on in the future.
