When you have a crowded calendar full of meetings, doctor appointments, and other reminders staring you in the face, it’s really a pain to try to add your tasks to it. Well, not anymore! Let’s see how Sarah uses SkedPal to reduce stress in her work.
Sarah needs to call one of her clients this week to get some clarification. She uses SkedPal’s Quick Add to create a new task: “Call Dave 15 mins this week [afternoon]” By doing so, she can be sure that this task is going be scheduled some time this week in an afternoon when she’s available. This is way more reliable than merely adding a reminder that pops up when you’re already busy with other things. Next, let’s see how Sarah uses SkedPal to prioritize her work.
It’s now next Monday 11 AM, Sarah gets an email from an important client who wants to have a meeting in the afternoon. Her calendar shows a busy afternoon already. She must re-prioritize her day as this is an important project.
So, she books an appointment at 2 PM in her Google calendar, and the event instantly appears in her SkedPal calendar. Now, she needs to click on UPDATE SCHEDULE in SkedPal to see the impact of this meeting.
SkedPal instantly reschedules two of her tasks:
o Prepare Radisson’s proposal. She had indicated this to be done on Monday. So, SkedPal rescheduled it to later after the meeting.
o Review material sent by James. SkedPal knew this needed to be completed by Friday. It managed to find a time slot for it on Thursday afternoon.
SkedPal also warns that one task needs her attention: Write a blog post.
Sarah has the intention to write a blog post on each Monday. But, today she has to juggle this as she must meet with her VIP client. So, she instructs SkedPal to defer this to Wednesday.
Voila! In less than a minute she reschedules her afternoon with confidence about all her commitments being under control.
