Colabolo For Team Task Management

Posted by Sravan | June 30, 2009 .

Back in February, I used to waste a lot of time on time management. I took a couple of courses and tried a couple of tools, until I returned back to the good old text document. Reasons could be that I don’t plan a very long time ahead and my life is not complicated enough.

Anyway, I had to try this new AIR app called Colabolo which Rob Christensen recommended. It is worth trying for everyone looking for task management software, especially for those who collaborate with others for their tasks.

Colabolo uses a Mac theme that can cool you a bit when you are overwhelmed with tasks. The tasks, called “issues”, can be as simple or as elaborate as you want. The user can attach files to include more information about the tasks and this can be done using a simple drag and drop, a feature that is yet to be adapted widely in AIR apps.

Some of the things that can be included in defining an issue are: title, description, start date, deadline date, priority, progress, status, comments (real-time), assignee, assigner, and notify list. Anyone who has worked in at least a mid-sized enterprise will identify this tool has all the features that are necessary for a “CRM tool” or an “Incident Tracking tool”. Email works, but it is a poor alternative to a tool like this in tracking issues.

Teams tend to have a large number of issues to be tracked, so there is a search feature which works pretty well. And the software doesn’t seem to be hogging system resources like most AIR apps do.

The current beta version is freely available but future versions will cost about $10/user/month. I think all small-to-mid sized teams should try this software.

ImaHima Inc, which is currently focused on the enterprise collaboration space, is the company behind Colabolo.
