I just heard about do.com and started to check it out. I quickly said to myself… “OK let’s give it a try… it is free and sounds useful.” Do.com is a completely new and free task / project collaboration management tool. It integrates with Google Apps and Salesforce.com (and apparently it is created  by Salesforce.com). There is an app for iPhone but as far as I can see Android owners are not covered in. The web interface is cool but good support for smartphones and tablets is quite important.

It is too early for me to give you a full review with a lot of conclusions, but I have played with do.com for some time today and tested most of the features. It looks and feels pretty cool for a free offering and worth sharing for sure… It is making it possible for you to collaborate with others on solving tasks, sharing files and notes. It is easy to get started and free!

Tasks are organized onto projects and once you are signed up you are asked to create your first project.

Then you can add some tasks as the next step in the wizard.

…and if you work with someone – you can start delegating right away.

I tested this with another email I use and received an invite. Once this account was registered I joined the project I invited myself to only the tasks I had been assigned to was visible.

When the intro wizard is over you get into the project space as shown below. It is a clean and simple dashboard I think.

On the activity tab you can see “all” project activity…however the upload of an attachment did not show up here and  I think it would make sense. But again it is a completely new app so we may find space for improvement here and there.

On the attachment tab it is simple to add files and share them with others you work with.

Finally you can add notes and they are private until you attach them to something.

For now there is only an app for iPhone and iPad… Not too good if you are an Android geek. We may wish for an Android version to really make this app viral.

Let me know what you think about do.com in a comment… if you decide to try it out.

I quickly assessed the capabilities of Do.com, and I think this system could be useful to many companies. We also liked the free version http://www.teamwox.com and rich functionality and we would like to start working with him. Does anyone know how to export tasks from one system and import it into another?

Thank you and keep up the good work.

Good Morning Lars or To Whom It May Concern:

I know everyone is busy, but I wanted to be unreasonable and ask for a moment of your time, because I enjoyed this article and need an expert opinion from someone like yourself.

I’m a small independent real estate finance business and I’m searching for ways to streamline my everyday business and life. But I’m unclear with all of the options out there. I currently use Outlook (because that’s what I learned on 15 years ago) and have an Android based phone.

What I’m looking for is:

1. CRM
2. Web based Calendar and task list that will auto sink from laptop to phone.
3. Email platform
4. Task assignment & management system such as Asana or Do for a small team of 2-5 people.

Thank you in advance! Your help is greatly appreciated. Please let me know if there is any info in my area of expertise that I can help you with to return the favor.

Sincerely,

Bill Boehm
