Dates keep us sane. From scheduling releases to prioritizing daily tasks, product managers take comfort in knowing precisely what needs to be done and when. But there are days that even the most productive among us struggle to keep up with the growing to-do list. When it happens to me, it becomes hard to focus on what is most important.
You can now arrange the order of records shown on a calendar report in Aha! to visualize and communicate the exact order that work needs to be completed — even when multiple items are due on the same day.
The current calendar report helps you instantly see important due dates for releases, features, to-dos, as well as custom date fields. This view makes it easy to schedule work and keep deadlines in sight. This is especially helpful when teams are planning date-driven activities, such as product launches and events.
But we know that when you have multiple items due on the same day, visualizing the records in priority order was difficult. This was because records on the calendar were ordered by the date they were created — not when they needed to be completed. Now, our latest enhancement allows you to drag and drop records on the calendar report so that you can prioritize what needs to be accomplished.
Here is how you can use the calendar report to plan and prioritize your activities:
Prioritize marketing launch activities
A successful product launch is a cross-functional effort. Create a launch calendar to get a handle on all activities that need to be completed by a certain date. Then, prioritize tasks within those records using to-dos. This will keep everyone aligned and on target.
Organize your launch-related activities by date on the calendar report.
Manage your own tasks
Stay on top of your own workload by prioritizing your to-dos each day and focusing on the most important ones first. Note that changing the order of records on the calendar report does not impact ranking anywhere else in Aha!
Plan your day by arranging tasks in order of importance and save your report.
Details matter when you are building and launching products. To meet delivery dates, everyone on the team needs to know what must be done and when.
The work in product and marketing never slows down. The calendar report helps fine tune your priorities so you can get the most out of each day. We enjoy using it and hope you do as well!
