Many software programs offer task management features to help a person manage their job and get stuff done. At StatusPath, our customers’ favorite programs with these task-like features include Google Tasks, Evernote, Salesforce, Microsoft Exchange, Jira, Asana, and many others. While these programs can offer rich feature sets aimed at moving an individual or team through a workplace process, they are ineffective tools for reporting status to a boss or team.
Task lists and similar task management programs help move an employee on a detailed journey from point A to point B.
StatusPath empowers business leaders to quickly understand an entire team’s progress, performance, and related perspective against both individual and company goals.
A status report isn’t just a list of completed or scheduled items. Yikes! What manager is going to log into every employee’s software system in an attempt to glean the health of the business through activity logs? Exactly…
Sure, status reports begin by concisely examining the most important items from an employee’s recent activities. But valuable status reports continue on and explore upcoming priorities, relevant KPIs, and of course employee perspective. It’s the perspective that casts a light on the most important items, that helps the manager make better decisions and lead the team to success.
Given that tasks can contribute one piece of the status report puzzle, we have made it easier than ever to reference task lists from multiple applications while writing your status report.
Our efforts thus far have led to helpful integration options with Google Tasks and Calendar, Salesforce, and Microsoft Exchange. We will continue to integrate more of the software programs our customers use, just as we will continue to provide more context for writing great status reports more quickly.
