Simply.Digital - Goals & Tasks

Todo list to track your time & help set meaningful deadlines

Organize your tasks into color-coordinated Goals (basically categories) and have the time you spend automatically added up both for reflecting on the past and seeing how booked you are looking forward. Scheduling works more like a paper planner, where you can jot things down for a specific date as well as weeks, months, or even just 2017.

Helloooo Product Hunt! 👋 When I started working for myself, I also started struggling with productivity. When 1000 things should be done by the end of the week, but nothing absolutely needs to be done today… it’s very difficult to work hard. So I made a todo list app to that can zoom out on long term plans and motivate me to meet my goals. It tracks my time and tells me how much I’ve gotten done as well as how booked I am looking forward. And here it is! People seem to like the automatic goal tracking and the color coding. But what makes Simply Goals & Tasks the most *different* from all the other options out there is how the scheduling works. It’s more like a paper planner, where you can schedule for any year, month, week, day or exact time. When you are forced to pick a date for each task you think of, you end up putting most of them into “today” or “tomorrow”. This can bury the things that actually need to be done today. It also leads to added overhead, as you are constantly postponing tasks into the next day. The typical use case would be adding tasks to this week or next week or even this month or year as you think of them. Then when the week starts, you know your schedule much better and can drag the tasks into the days that make sense. Now you have a real plan to get everything done. By not adding granularity until necessary, it makes it more meaningful. You know all the tasks on your list for today are there for a reason. I would love any feedback and am happy to answer questions 🙏

I've tried a lot of task managers, but kept going back to paper. This one finally works the way I think. I haven't seen anything else that does scheduling this way.

Pros:

The scheduling that leaves a bit of flexibility.

Cons:

I would really like a web app =)

I always was a "list" person, never left the house without a notebook and pen.

Now I use my phone. Very easy to use and convenient.

Pros:

I am more organized and never miss an appointment.

Cons:

Realizing how much time I waste.

I work for myself and keeping strict 9-5 to manage boundaries *sounds* good but it's not practical. It also kinda defeats the purpose of being self employed (the flexibility). I've been really pleasantly surprised how well this app works for tracking all the things that I have to do. And even helping align time-spent with priorities. Its obvious right away if I'm spending too much time on any one thing... or not actually getting much done.

Pros:

Keeping work and personal tasks together but not mixed up.

Cons:

Missing a few features I would like.

Haven't found a better way to track how booked I am for the week. Looks nice, though option to change the theme would be nice

Pros:

Time tracking and color coordinating different types of tasks

Cons:

Still missing some features.
