Taskheat is a visual task manager that allows you to transform your task flow into a flowchart and find the shortest and optimal paths to your goals.
We are all human beings. And we are not good at multitasking. It leads us to an obvious conclusion: the success of every job we make is defined by the right order or tasks we do and the tasks we ignore. By specifying the correct dependencies between tasks, Taskheat shows us a subset of duties that can be done here and now. In other words, it hides away those tasks that are not relevant in a specific moment of time and place.
The application operates in the following key terms:
Project — usually represents a finite and achievable goal and contains tasks that represent necessary steps to that goal.
Task — represents a single task with its title and optional description, due date, delegation, and location information. To make it easier to scan through a long array of tasks, you can color-code them for your convenience.
Dependency — is a connection between two tasks within a single project that defines which task is enabling and dependent. It reflects their execution order. Each task can depend on or enable any number of other tasks.
Tag — used to group different tasks by some shared criteria. Very useful for filtering.
Taskheat has a special place for these tasks we call Actual Tasks. It is located at the top of the Sidebar, and it is opened by default every time you launch the app.
You can view your workload in a Flowchart or List views. While List View is a common and standard way to represent a list of tasks, Flowchart provides a bird-eye view at dependencies and gives you the idea of complexity.
The Flowchart view
In the Mac version, you can see the dependencies on the right side of the List view in a thing we call the Spaghetti View. You can select, modify, and delete any connection there.
The List view
After you completed all the project tasks or if the project is not relevant to you anymore, you can archive it to hide everything that belongs there from sight. It will help you to start the new project from a blank page.
