Voo2do is a clever take on the standard scheduling and organizational application. Rather than focusing on simple dates and tasks, Voo2do allows users to prioritize each task. The result is an advanced method of maintaining a busy schedule. Rather than focus purely on less important details, users can get things done in the order they should be completed, with the most time sensitive items first.Show more screenshots »
Voo2do was created in August of 2005. Since then, thousands of users have turned to this application as a way to revamp their view on scheduling. Tasks by email, backup and restore features, time zone settings and printable lists were added the following September. Since then, additional features including collaboration support, an FAQ page, and the ability to display priorities on the dashboard have been implemented.
Anyone can put together a calendar or other basic tool to maintain a schedule. However, Voo2do does something different. This application allows users to track tasks and projects by priority as well as due date and estimated completion time. While general dates are important, these added controls allow users a better grasp on what needs done and when. Tasks can be categorized by project or viewed at once as a group of projects.
The look of Voo2do is a little less professional and streamlined than other scheduling software. However, the available options and layout still get the job done. Light colors spice up the overall appearance and make sorting simple. The focus remains on information and prioritization rather than appearance. The layout provides a simple way to review tasks without wading through clutter. The basic text selection also adds to readability.
New users can click the sign up for free link on the homepage to visit the registration form. Voo2do requires a username, first and last names, email and password. As soon as the information is entered, the user is given access to the tasks page and all available free features. No further verification is required to set up a free access account; however the application does request that email eventually be validated.
As I stated, users can easily create a free account. This allows access to basic features the application offers. That being said, the application also offers a premium account upgrade for users interested in accessing additional features. The upgrade costs a mere $7 per month and comes with a seven day free trial. When upgrading, users can access and review timesheets for accurate billing and a detailed log that records task changes. The plus account also includes SSL encryption on all pages. Additional upgrades are added periodically as well, providing added benefits to paying members.
Busy individuals looking for a more efficient way to sort through daily and weekly commitments can appreciate what Voo2do has done. While you can practice basic scheduling through calendars and lists, Voo2do’s prioritization system promotes efficiency. The two account options are also attractive. Users who have a lighter to do list might prefer to access a free account while others may prefer the luxury of a paid upgrade. Either format allows access to the vital tools necessary to enhance busy schedules. Voo2do has no group discounts offered and seems to be geared more towards the individual rather than a work force. That is not to say it is not handy in the office, but rather might be a better fit for a single person looking for a new way to manage their hectic lifestyle.
