What people say

Goalshaper is great to track all of your actions and keep everyone in your team accountable, in one place. It’s really made it easy to delegate and assign what needs to be done for you or team.

It helps me organize my thoughts and tasks against my longer term goals. I can put all challenges and tasks and helps me to stop trying to remember everything I need to do.

Goalshaper has fantastic features and it is extremely helpful for my business.

Since using GoalShaper, I have been able to truly stay on top of my teams tasks and todo’s. In 1 organized place, I can figure out exactly what everyone is working on and from my side, I can also figure out how that fits in to our long terms goals.

If you’re looking for a software that will finally get rid of everything else you’re using, GoalShaper is for your business.

I like Goalshaper – colourful, straightforward, easy to use.
Love the colours (I am very visual), and love the way Goalshaper is laid out.
Most other ’task management/to do’ apps out there can make the app very ‘customisable’ – i.e. complicated (!)
This probably comes from businesses not knowing what the client really wants.
Everybody manages their priorities (or not!) differently.
(as you know, we are managing priorities, not time – time passes regardless of your priorities :)
So… IT tech/designers/programmers attempt to ‘cover all bases’.
They give the customer ‘everything’ they could possibly want with respect to ’slicing and dicing’ task ‘data’ (Tech’s do that , its what they are good at, and what they like doing).
With 10 different ways of doing the same thing (see Microsoft Word!!), ultimate configurability, and ‘cool’ features, clients get swamped and confused, so they dont use it.
An app does not have to be complicated to be effective.
In fact, as im sure you know already, the more complicated an app is, the less people use it.
Simplicity.
One way of doing each of a few things well.
That’s what I love about Goalshaper.
There are some more things I have noticed about completing tasks, etc, so will let you know. Some of this may be by design. (like closing/completing a task, retrospectively).
e.g. Say I completed a task on Friday, (today is Saturday). The app will not let me end the task as of Friday. It will show the task (as a minimum) to be completed today, Saturday.
i.e. the end date of a task cannot be set to earlier than the current date.  This may be a way of catching which tasks a client did not perform on time. Or they may have just forgotten to tick it off.
Milestone end dates are the same (since a Milestone appears to be a subtype of an Action). This is annoying when you revisit a MIlestone because you hit it on time, but didnt update the app, and the app wont let you update the milestone end date.
This encourages people to then not set Milestones in the first place.
This is a great way to gather data on ‘what people do, when, to achieve their goals and results’.
Almost a demonstrable “Roadmap / Scheduled Task list for Success” one might say, if people capture everything they do – which they sometimes dont.
With corroboration evidence, across and between different people, over time.  Nice.
Keep going with a great product!
Looking forward to using the smartphone app when it arrives (you mentioned it was in testing.)

I have been using this proven process in my coaching and mentoring practise for We Are The City and it is brilliant. My mentees and coaches say that it helps them reduce overwhelm and stay on track.

I just love it. My dozens of pages of lists are disappearing – not all gone yet. I particularly love being able to drag and re-prioritise items – makes my old numbering and highlighting seem very pedestrian.

I am a process and efficiency specialist and I like breaking things down into quarters. I actually sometimes even advise clients to break things into month increments, so they seem less overwhelming… I also love how you can categorize tasks. In my world, this is called ‘affinitizing’, and it’s super helpful for folks to see if they are well-rounded in their activities.

The feature I use the most is the calendar. I can keep a list of un-calendered aspirations handy in the ‘sort’ list on the left-hand side and slot them into the calendar when time is available. There is flexibility in the system that allows this. A very useful tool which I open first thing each morning, tick off tasks as they are completed during the day, and in the evening, set up my plan for the next day.
