Workflowy: organize your brain, streamline your day

From collaborating on to managing tasks and projects, WorkFlowy promises to help organize your brain to keep your day streamlined and productive.



Organizing your workflow

Organizing your workflow and all of your professional projects can easily become overwhelming. But there’s a simple way to let all that information take a shape that is consistent, cohesive, and easily navigated. Workflowy is a tool that will make your work life more streamlined and less stressful. And we could all use a little of that.

Workflowy can be used for a variety of professional tasks. It allows you to create an ongoing journal, plan and create outlines, keep track of your to-do list, and even collaborate with coworkers on both small and large projects. Workflowy helps you create massive amounts of content and data and then organize it through minimizing and maximizing what you want to see through the drop down formatting.

If you’re the type that has many projects going on at once, not to mention trying to keep on top of your personal life, Workflowy gives you the control you’re looking for. It’s also an easy way to work closely with other members of your team in a well-orchestrated environment that promotes productivity and clarity. Start the list and let your coworkers add their thoughts to the outline.

Also works on the go

Workflowy is also convenient. You can now access it on your iPhone or iPad. However, if you’re an Android user, you’ll have to wait a little while longer for a compatible app. Workflowy is also focused on getting the contents of your brain out on one single page, no matter how long that page ends up being. You can just add to your list until you run out of things to include. It’s reported that some users have more than 40,000 items on their lists, making their page longer than most novels. Be assured that Workflowy has more capacity and space than you could ever use by yourself.

As overwhelming as that may seem, it really isn’t. Workflowy lets you search for specific keywords and you can apply tags to each item on your page, making it fantastically easy to navigate. You can even import information from Google Docs and have an even better format than you originally had. Now that’s ingenuity. Whether you’ve started a project elsewhere or you want to create something completely new and fresh, Workflowy is a tool that offers features for everyone.

    I’ve been waiting patiently for them to release an Android app for this. I don’t think one will be released any time soon (I have been waiting for about a year now).
    I think it’s a great app, but I am curious why they haven’t gone mobile with it yet.
