GetBusy product overview
GetBusy is a task management system that improves communication and cuts down on the clutter usually found in project management tools, group chats, and email. Communication and to-do lists are organized into simple, defined tasks. Conversations happen within distinct tasks, eliminating overlapping discussions. All participants can view the workflow and see where they are in a project. Once a task is assigned, GetBusy organizes to-do lists based on users, due dates, teams, and tags. GetBusy’s smart to-do lists can be viewed on desktop or via their app.
Pros of GetBusy
Team communication is based around tasks, eliminating off-topic messages, and clutter. If vital information regularly gets lost in group chats, this is a simple, streamlined solution.
Cons of GetBusy
GetBusy doesn’t offer all the bells and whistles of full-feature project management tools, which can be seen as a pro or a con depending on a team’s needs. Currently, it is not designed for budget or time tracking but does integrate with Zapier.
Breakdown of core features
Organize the day with a to-do list. See personal to-dos, and to-dos a team and clients have delegated. Users automatically get notified if the task is overdue, and others in the task also get notified if/when it’s completed! Tasks can be delegated so everyone on a project knows who is responsible for what.
Smart To-Do Lists
GetBusy gives users the option of several smart views for outstanding tasks. Users can view tasks by due date, overdue tasks, and tags. Users can also see what subtasks in a project have been assigned to other people.
All communication happens within a task or project, keeping all related communications centralized. Quickly review all communications around a project in one easy-to-read place without having to scroll through off-topic chatter. Discussions don’t get lost or buried.
