Divide, conquer, and get stuff done. ToDo Teams is a little project I whipped up for a few reasons.
- I found that while splitting tasks up with student developers at work, that we were often stepping on each others toes. We needed a quick and easy way to indicate what we were working on so no one else would be trying to do the same thing.
- We needed a centralized place to manage tasks and track things to work on for specific projects.
- I wanted to learn CakePHP.
ToDo teams is essentially a productivity free-for-all. There’s no assigning tasks to people or forcing people to work on certain things. There’s simply a list of things that have to get done, and everyone is given the ability to work towards that goal.
…at least that’s how it is now. In the future it could change.
When something on a project changes, other users viewing that project will quickly receive notifications about projects changes through AJAX alerts. This helps to keep everyone up-to-date on the latest project information, and helps keep stale information or concurrency issues from happening.
ToDo Teams uses OpenID (currently through Google or Yahoo) so that there’s no extra usernames or passwords to remember. You can be logged in and working in seconds, and there’s no extra headaches keeping team members from joining your project.
ToDo Teams aims to be as simple as possible with the focus on getting stuff done, not fooling around with complicated project management software. If you think ToDo Teams may be a good fit for you and your team, check it out now.
