1. Orga of team meetings
Whether as a jour fixe, monthly or as a management round - team meetings are part of the daily work routine. For an even smoother organization, you can create a project in awork to which all team members have access.
Together, you add lists and tasks for current topics to be discussed in the next meeting. During the meeting, enter the most important team milestones into the timeline, create recurring tasks for regular topics and keep everything in view!
Good to know: For evaluation purposes, you can also simply enter times on internal projects and then mark them as not billable.
2. Templates for recurring projects
You want to organize an onboarding, plan trainings for your employees or create a checklist for new customers? All this can be easily mapped in awork. Our recommendation for these standard workflows: Use the project and task templates in awork! They help you to predefine recurring workflows and simply load them into your projects.
Pro-tip: Create a tag in awork specifically for all internal projects. This way you can filter, evaluate and directly recognize in the project overview whether a project is internal or external. You can also store this tag directly in the templates.
3. Individual statuses for processes
With individual project and task statuses in awork, your team always stays informed about the current status of all processes and to-dos. For example, if you map a recruiting project in awork, you can use the project status to indicate whether the position is already publicly posted or filled.
The project statuses could then read: "New applications", "Candidates in process" and "Acceptances" as well as "Rejections". If you look in your project overview, you can see at first glance where you are in the project. You can also use these individual statuses for your sales funnels, the organization of your product development and more!
4. Automation of email inbox, ticketing & approval
Besides your pending to-dos, you also have to take care of incoming invoices, office ticketing or approvals, e.g. for layouts or texts. For you, that is annoying, manual work from various tools - pure chaos. Can't it be more simple?
Of course! With the task-from-email feature and smart automations you can do these tasks very smoothly via awork. Forward the emails automatically to the appropriate project, automate your processes and free up more time for other topics.
5. Planning events
Your trade fair, Christmas party or annual summer party is just around the corner? Put an end to last-minute errands and plan your events like a pro! To do this, you create an awork project, invite the people involved and distribute all the tasks. So nothing stands in the way of a glamorous performance or a glittering party!
awork expert tip: For recurring processes (e.g. catering or fixed program points) you can also create practical task templates.
6. Central idea pool
We know you and we know: You have super duper cool ideas for awesome projects! It would be great if you could turn them directly into projects and tasks.
How to do it: Create a project in which you collect these ideas and plans together with your team. Backlog lists and their items can be moved to a new project via multiple selection, people can be assigned to your upcoming to-dos, and so on.
7. Time budgets for employees
As a manager, create a precise overview of time budgets for employees, e.g. for the remaining vacation entitlement, the annual training budget or days for corporate volunteering.
To do this, you simply create a project and plan the budget for the project and individual tasks. This way you can keep track of all budgets!
