Planit

by Alicia Silhavy

At one point or another, procrastination has plagued us all. It starts with putting off doing the dishes or writing that paper, then piles up until it’s Sunday evening and you have three days’ work to do in four hours. Planit is a multi-device platform that breaks the procrastination cycle by combining the procrastination-fighting power of organization with a community that builds confidence and increases motivation. Users form lasting habits using Planit through the engaging space theme and rewards for engaging with the platform.

Plant’s task management system is designed to give unmotivated people easy, fun ways to create, manage, and complete tasks. Tasks, organized into Task Lists, can be viewed in a list, board, or agenda. This is combined with Communities, which are both public and private friend groups. Users can share Posts, Tasks, Task Lists, and Badges with their Communities. These two systems -- Planning and Community -- are combined with the power of information visualization in the Dashboard, reminders, Badges, and a fun, engaging theme to make users motivated and excited about task management.

Planning and procrastination affect people in all aspects of their lives -- not just at their desks. This is why Planit spans across three devices: a wearable, like an Apple Watch, a mobile device, like a phone or tablet, and a web app. Each device in the Planit ecosystem serves a unique purpose. The wearable gives users a quick at-a-glance view of their day and upcoming tasks; the mobile device builds upon that with more task creation and management views and adds the community; the web app adds a final layer of information visualization and more ways to view your tasks. No matter what device you’re on, Planit’s unique space theme and reward system are always by your side.
