See our simple steps below and learn how to streamline your workflows for better productivity with iMindMap 10’s Time Map View.
In Time Map View, assemble your ideas on a visually rich timeline and transform them into actionable tasks. Along your timeline, use brightly coloured tasks to represent each step and action you need to take to complete the project. Once steps have been defined, add start and due dates to know exactly where your time needs to be spent and ensure that every action is taken on time and in a logical order.
Time Map View allows you to work backwards from your end goal. Break work down into important time milestone to clearly define the areas where you need to concentrate on taking action. Swimlanes are a visual way to categorise your to-do’s by grouping together related tasks.
Categorise your workflow and see who is responsible for what task by adding icons within your Time Map. Use coloured flags to identify a task importance or task connectors to define the order in which tasks should be carried out. At a glance you can see responsibilities, dependencies and urgency to ensure you’re always aware of what needs to be done and when.
Avoid falling behind on incomplete work and use the task status system to track progress through your workflow. Updating accurate progress is vital for getting your project over the finish line. If you’re working within a team, use the Export and Share options to share current task status with other colleagues. By notifying others of the status of the project, you’ll provide them with a boost of motivation to keep moving forward.
Manage your daily progress by assigning icons that indicate if tasks have been started, are on hold or completed. This will help you to assess what needs more work and what no longer requires your attention, enhancing your focus on the work that needs your attention most.
