Fabulous new things...


Micro-blogging Status Updates

Our assumption that we know what everyone's upto is absolutely wrong. That's why DeskAway has its own simple micro- blogging feature which allows all the members to post and update their status. See Screenshot...

Task Calendar View

DeskAway has just added a new task calendar feature. So if there's loads of tasks in your project and you wish to have a consolidated view of the task within a project along with their respective deadlines, just click on the small icon next to the Task list page heading and you will see a new calendar pop up and guide you through all the tasks and their deadlines. See Screenshots...

Adding New Tasks From Anywhere

Too many clicks are annoying. From our experience and feedback, we realised that the tasks feature is used quite heavily. Therefore, to make your working more seamless, we have made the 'Add Tasks' feature available from every page of your application. This way you can add a task from just anywhere into any project and reduce some precious time navigating through the application. See Screenshots...

Uploading files within Task comments, Extending the deadline date before commenting

Very often we comment on the tasks and if necessary, we upload a relevant file in the files section. We have simplified this further. Now, you can upload files within task comments itself. This way we can associate the file with the specific task comment and not lose track of why the file was uploaded. See Screenshots...

Recurring Tasks, Cloning Tasks, Copying a Task into a new project & CC'ing a task to everyone

We all undertake tasks that have to be done on a regular basis. Some are done weekly, some monthly, some even daily (For e.g. Backup the computer every week). If that's the case with you too, then you will like the new DeskAway recurring tasks feature. See Screenshots...

DeskAway supports OpenID

If you are tired of having to remember too many usernames and passwords for the various sites that you would like to gain access to, then you do have a solution. OpenID lets you login to thousands of OpenID-enabled sites with one username and password. See Screenshots...

Hope you enjoy these new features. Good luck with your projects!

Best,

The DeskAway Team
