OnlineClock.net has released a new time management tool that helps its users manage deadlines effectively. Although they are known for their alarm clocks, representatives of the world’s original online clock have just created a time management function for their users. It's called the Task Planner, and it helps users focus on and complete their daily tasks.
Tom Churm, owner of OnlineClock.net said, “We wanted to create a task management product that was specifically geared toward people who have the need to complete a multitude of daily tasks.”
OnlineClock.net knows that tasks can be overwhelming when they are looked at as a whole and not broken down into smaller segments. Long lists of things to do are scribbled on little sticky pads, and they exist on the desks of workers everywhere. The new Task Planner helps to break down these long lists into smaller segments of time. This way, task glut can be avoided.
Using the new Task Planner is simple. Users of the site can enter the task, set the timer and begin working within their designated time frame to accomplish the task. When the alarm sounds, they can move on to the next item on the list.
According to research compiled in an article on PBS.org, multitasking is not the best way to complete daily tasks. Devoting energy to one task at a time is the most effective way to accomplish a long list of tasks. People who focus on one task at a time tend to achieve more. They also tend to turn out higher quality work by not moving between tasks.
The people at OnlineClock.net have been considering this finding for quite some time. Software companies have responded to this finding by creating many complicated applications to help people with their daily tasks. OnlineClock.net decided to take a simpler approach with its response to the need for time management applications by creating a simple user interface that can accommodate both the title of the task and the time allocated for completion. Users of the Task Planner have the ability to designate either the timer or the alarm clock as the audible reminder of a deadline. The site also has many pleasant alternatives to buzzing or beeping sounds.
There are several ideas behind how either the alarm or the timer function can be used with the site’s new Task Planner. The alarm clock can be used for longer tasks. These include deadlines up to 24 hours. When choosing to use the alarm, the large digital clock will display, and the site also displays the alarm time in the title of a browser tab. For shorter tasks, a timer can be used. Both have a snooze function for times when the bosses are intent on reiterating their needs for meeting deadlines while simultaneously preventing them from occurring. The snooze function can extend the timer until the boss is through with all verbal reminders of what needs to be done.
The Task Planner also works well to dissuade coworkers from retelling the events of their awesome weekend. Once the alarm or timer sounds, it can be a reminder to a coworker that they are interrupting timed tasks.
The Task Planner is the first task management tool for OnlineClock.net. The beauty of its new Task Planner is that it is completely free to use and requires no user registration.
Online since March 24th, 2006, the Online Alarm Clock was the world's first online alarm clock website. Online Clock strives to be the number one network for the simplest, most useful and best Online Clocks, Timers and Time Tools.
