If I told you that Zenkit was one of the coolest new tools to use these days you’d probably wonder what the heck a Zenkit was. It sounds sort of like a handy box of items used for finding inner peace. In reality, Zenkit is an online project management tool that can ultimately give you inner peace because you’ll be using your time wiser and become much more productive.
So, how can I use this to find my inner project management peace you ask? Well let’s take a look. Let’s say you are planning you company retreat and you have a long list of what needs to be done. You’ve neatly typed it into your handy dandy spreadsheet and now you not only need to assign each task but you also need to organize each task in categories to make sure everything is done. You could send emails and make notes on your Excel sheet OR you could plug your list into Zenkit and make magic happen.
With Zenkit you can create your new list from scratch or you can import from Trello, Wunderlist or even your spreadsheet you just created.
Once everything is imported the fun begins! Below is the kanban view of our items.
Items can be moved from one category to another easily with drag and drop. Alternatively you can take the same items and apply the list view:
For this particular list type it doesn’t make much sense to use the following view but I’m going to show it to you anyway because it’s a really cool feature. Mind Mapping!!
Mind mapping would definitely be useful for a hierarchy list.
Now that you have all of your info put into the board you can use all of the amazing built in features to start completing these tasks. Zenkit allows you to build teams so you can assign tasks to others. Assignees can make notes and keep you posted on the progress of their task.
I know what you’re thinking, collaborating with others sometimes causes a bit of confusion as to what others have done. The creators of Zenkit have really thought this part through. There is a historic list attached to each card within your list to let you know every activity that has taken place with this task.
You can track every event that has happened since the creation of this task. Beautiful and well thought out!
Zenkit offers a multitude of features that will help you become more productive. The video below will give you a nice overview of all that Zenkit has to offer!
Zenkit is a work in progress. New features are being added constantly (including the mobile app development). It was just announced that they are now partnered with Zapier. This feature alone opens up a whole new world of opportunities! To get an overview of all the new connections visit their Zenkit Integrations Page here.
