Web: If email is your tool of choice, then Planleaf will create collaborative task lists, where you can also add teammates, issue deadlines and add notes to completed tasks—all with a simple email message.
The app is appealing because it doesn’t require anyone to sign up, is formatted as a check-list, and works anywhere using email. You could use Planleaf to create a new task list every day, and CC your team or anyone concerned. They have the ability to add new items, edit current ones, or tick the completed jobs.
To create a task list, just add a dash before each item in the list. Anything in the email without a dash won’t appear, while the subject line of the email is the task list’s header. You can add deadlines by putting the day or date in brackets—for e.g. (Monday)—and people can be tagged by adding an @ symbol before their name. However, you will need to rely on your email client’s search capabilities for finding the tags. Planleaf sends a daily email digest to show you the items due for that day.
While Planleaf could be used by individuals, it’s best as a short-term team collaboration tool. Send a daily task list, have people check off items or add more, and it’s all done on email. No apps, no fuss.
