Advanced and Simple Modes

Our goal is to offer you a tool that has all the advanced features you need 🚀, while also enabling you to collaborate with team members who may not be tech-savvy 👩‍💻👨‍💻. All this because...

Implementing new tools in a team is tough 😓

You've probably tried introducing a new tool among your colleagues before, and you know it's no walk in the park.

  • Oh boy, this looks complex, can I handle it? 😬

  • Wouldn't Google Docs be easier?

  • Let's schedule a training session to figure this out

  • Do we really need another tool when we're already managing?

It's hard to blame these concerns because...

Most popular task managers are quite complicated 🤯

There are many powerful tools out there offering a myriad of features 🌟. However, users often have to:

  • Choose from a multitude of templates 📋

  • Watch a tutorial or go through a walk-through 📺

And yet, users are often greeted by interfaces like this:

In Simple Mode, all your tasks—whether you assigned them to yourself or received them—go to one place: the My tasks tab.

Advanced Mode 🌈

In Advanced Mode, you can flexibly plan your tasks across three tabs:

Today, Soon, Later tabs in Ping app
  • Today (your plan for today) 🌞

  • This week (plan for the upcoming week) 🗓️

  • Later (remaining tasks awaiting their turn) ⏳

You can also set specific due dates for tasks 🗓️. Tasks with a due date will automatically move to the appropriate tab as the due date approaches. Learn more about planning.

Existing tasks will be merged into the My tasks tab or sorted into Today, This week, Later tabs based on their deadlines 🗂️.
