It's not always easy to keep track of your assignments at work, and still remember what the rest of your team is supposed to be working on. It can stressful when you've got a client waiting for a completed project.
If you're the boss, and the responsibility rests on your shoulders, it's your job to keep projects on track, on budget and on time. Even if you're not the boss, you want to make sure your co-workers are meeting their deadlines on a project.
Of course, you can try tried-and-true methods. You can shout down the hall and ask. Or, you can bring it up at your next staff meeting. But, these days so many people are working for themselves at home, a few towns over or halfway around the world, that neither of those is always practical.
The iOS app WakesApp lets you send to-do tasks to all your co-workers. Just send an instant message to one person or a group of people, with a list of assignments. Note: You can send messages to people who use WakesApp, or use their email address or phone number to send them a WakesApp message.
