Good for tracking what you've done
Using IDoneThis really helps me feel like I've accomplished things during the week.
As a knowledge worker, I would often look back on the week and feel like I hadn't gotten anything done. IDoneThis helps me track what projects I've worked on as well as all of the other daily tasks that get thrown in. IDoneThis is easy to use, easy to access, and I really like that you can enter dones and to-dos manually, as well as via email reminder.
I like the calendar feature, but don't like that I can't click between dates or see, overall, what I've done in a length of time. I have to click on each individual date to see what I've done for the day and that can be quite slow and cumbersome.
A simply and elegant tool
I use it as a diary, to keep track of my productivity from day to day. It's very effective and gives me a great sense of accomplishment.
It's very simple to use and very effective in its functionality. It allows me to email in the tasks that I accomplished and to keep track of them via the calendar. I also love the reminders, included in the email, of what I accomplished on the same day weeks and months ago.
I'd love to have it as an app for my phone.
I have been using idonethis since 2014 and it does what it say it does really well. Can't be wrong.
Helps me keep track of what I've done daily.
I use it to keep track of what I've done via the daily reminder email. It allows me to export all of the tasks in CSV annually. This way I get an overview of what I have done. It really helps me to have a good idea of my productivity.
The new version helps with team tasks management. But I don't really use those features, I wish there are ways for me to toggle it for solo use.
Perfect chance for a daily reflection
I use idonethis for many years as a daily reflection tool. Both for business and for private use.
It helps me to identify patterns and to check my output.
- I could use it via email reply
- It sends me things I wrote last year
- I could export it via calendar
- It reminds me every evening
- The website interface is a little bit oldschool and slow (but I use e-mail replys anyway)
Excellent Task Recording Tool
I appreciate the export to a CSV file feature... this very easily allows me to provide my management a monthly recap of accomplishments.
I use the free version to record my own task/done list at work via the Mac App integration (I can log in using my Google acct with a single click). The app just sits on my desktop where I can easily make entries as my day progresses. I especially like having the ability to #tag keywords for easy recaps of particular types of tasks.
No complaints... although it would be great to have the option to enter single entries (like the old Mac App) vs. adding to a list (smaller footprint on the desktop).
iDoneThis does the remembering for you
This service makes it EASY to track every little task and project I complete. I've been using it for six years. That means if I'm doing first quarter planning, I can go back and look at what I did the first quarter the last few years and see what I can repeat and how I can build on the past. The more you advance in your career, the less you can rely on your memory. iDoneThis does the remembering for me. I often forget my accomplishments, but iDoneThis lets me go back and reflect and see how I've grown. All I have to do is reply to an email iDoneThis sends me every day, and it enters my completed tasks for me. If you don't track what you've done, it's almost as if you didn't even do it. iDoneThis adds tremendous value because it tracks and helps you measure your progress. I recommend this to anyone who will listen.
Would be nice if I could figure out how to integrate my calendar with iDoneThis.
I'm a musician, music therapist and writer simply keeping track of daily work. I don't work with a team, but I use 'I Done This' to note thoughts and ideas about work and life in general as well as noting the work I've done that day. It's easy to search past entries to review ideas and this takes away some of the fear of losing ideas that might have mileage.
The 'I Done This' software with its daily reminder email makes it simple to note each day what I've done, as it's easy to forget the detail in a busy life.
I use the software at a pretty basic level and there's nothing that annoys me about it.
Room for improvement, especially around notifications across the board!
Pretty good overall... does help the team.
Does what it is supposed to in general...
Wish had better options for being notified... if I do comment on someone's done, I would expect to at least have the option to be notified to any responses on that 'thread' (rather than remind folks to add an @mention).
Reminders are also a bit too quick to disappear for folks not updating (for example when on vacaction, one would have to get back and reset reminders...).
Great Communication Channel
It keeps me informed, and is such an easy to use platform for anyone.
I like the new platform vs. the one I used in 2014-2016, being able to load goals and check them off is a feature I find really beneficial. Training a new employee to use Idone is more than simple. If they have ever used a social media platform, they can navigate this one just as easily.
I don't have any dislikes, I really like Idone.
I've used it for years as a quick and easy way to record time spent on various tasks/jobs. I don't need a complex timesheet app with loads of bells and whistles, so IDoneThis is perfect for me.
Really simple to use. The email prompt is a genius idea.
Calendar view for reviewing entries is not as easy to use as it might be.
Easy tracking of a day's accomplishments.
Easy tracking of a day's accomplishments with daily email reminders. Team features make it easy to keep track of a teams progress.
The lack of an android app to generate push notifications for daily reminders does make it harder to keep on top of updates.
Love this little app
Take a look at my PROs. Love this little tool.
I needed something to help me (1) keep track of what I needed to do and - more importantly - (2) remind myself of what I actually got done. This little tool makes it ridiculously easy to do both of those things. Very easy to use, very fast, and very helpful.
I'd like to be able to re-arrange the visual display of items.
An easy to use tool that helps me to stay organized and motivated
Motivation, organizing my daily tasks, organizing teamwork
I do most like the simplicity of the tool. Idonethis is a proof that powerfull tools don't neet to be complex.
Prices. In my eyes the rates are too high. Competetive solutions have more functionality, but lower prices.
I use IDoneThis primarily for working w/ depression. Being able to see how much or little I did on one day is motivating, as well as it is very satisfying to put something down as done, much better than creating a list of things to do.
Easy to use, can access anywhere b/c via browser, sign-in via Google.
A lot of bugs, i.e. can’t switch b/w dates sometimes. Also, there isn’t an overall view of seeing your list, unless you export. Too simple for what it is, would really like app of some sort w/ more features, such as overall view, sub-dones, re-sort by oldest, alphabetical, etc.
Helps me keep track of what's being done on a day-to-day basis, even if I'm not in the office.
As said before, the two best things about IDoneThis hav been my employees' willingness to use it on a regular basis and the daily update email.
The two best things about IDoneThis have been 1.) My employees' willingness to use it on a regular basis, and 2.) The daily update email that includes all the information from what was accomplished the day before. Those two things alone make it worth the investment.
It's not cheap for what it accomplishes. For now, I'm willing to pay for it for the two pros I listed above; they're that important to me.
good basic tracking tool
My team felt in love with this alternative to case management for tracking of post activities at desk
Everything is basic which is sometimes the best choice (less is more)
The app is badly needed. Happy to hear that something is coming
Super easy to use, friendly UI, customer service reliable even though the chat is not a chat
No systematic invoice when buying, I have to request it each time, for a B2B this is not good.
We need an app to track on the go
Integration in sfdc for metrics
I want to have 2 to 3 customize able fields
Great concept, execution needs some work
I think the idea of IDoneThis is excellent and I love its simplicity. I've found it very helpful in keeping track of my projects and workflow.
The search function is crucial, but more often than not results in a red screen that says simply, "An error has occurred. We're sorry. An error has taken place while trying to respond to your request." I've experienced this error repeatedly over many weeks. Fix this and my review would be much more favourable.
Valuable for accountability
Capture your completions
Simple and streamlined way to capture my daily thoughts and completions as well as end of week incompletions that I can mark especially. This saves me from having my own system and keeps it easily accessible and easily captured so I can focus on doing. Tracking completions for me hasn't helped me celebrate wins, notice patterns in my work and moods, and focus on doing and not on random distractions or details like many productively systems I've tried.
Easy to use and integrate with my productivity system
Really does everything I want with. I issued but if I had to say something - Don't have ways to link other productively files that I use like excel to have everything in one place.
Good tool to monitor teams activity
My favorite aspect of this tool is that not only help you to have an overview of the projects/tasks your teams are working into, but it allows you to have a full view of the daily obstacles the team members have during their day to day work. Many other platforms are very good is project planning but fail in implementing a feature that accounts the unexpected tasks of the day to day, which part part of the work of fast moving industries of today. This fast sharing of the status of the work allows you to be more connected to the team and issues to be solved faster
Trial period is extremely short as it is just 3 days. To have a good understanding of the potential of the tool and the benefits that can bring to the team, a normal team would need at least from a week to 10 days of trial
Quick task tracking for life and work
It's incredibly easy to use, just type into a field whatever it is you want to track. I use it to track everything from general work tasks to what season/episode of shows that I've watched in a given day. It helps me keep track of where I left off especially when I'm watching several shows at the same time (afaik, Netflix is the only service that gives you watch history). You can export your data into an Excel file and customize your notifications such as get weekly updates and/or daily reminders.
You can use hashtags to help organize for later searching/aggregating.
I don't have any complaints, actually! You get a lot with the free version.
Great For Looking Back
I don't use I Done This for business but my daughter-in-law does and she's the one who started me on it. So I can't say anything about my business experience with it, but she loves it. As a personal user, I would be very upset if they discontinued the personal page, because it's like having a short journal to keep track of your life.
I have the personal version and I like that I can see that I actually accomplished something in a day. And if I need to check back on when I did something, the search feature is a great help. I Done This almost feels like an easy, short journal, helping you to remember and capture what you did in any particular day.
I've been using this about 4 years and can't say there's anything I don't like. The app was really wonky but I mostly use the web site on my computer so that didn't matter to me. Although it's nice to hear they're coming out with a new app.
Managers use of iDone
Again, because the comments section does not work easily, problem solving is difficult. The primary use of this program is as a “call report”. Team interaction is cumbersome.
Easy to share events and thoughts quickly and in real time.
The comments area is porly designed. No edit capability and it clearly gets no attention from the designers. Actually, from a manager’s view point, the comments area is the most important. Even for a sales team, a sales person often reaches out for ideas fro the team and those ideas are very difficult to share. It seems as though the designers do not see the value of comments. I have complained about this issue for 3 years now with absolutely no result and certainly no improvement. Because of this I would be reluctant to recommend the use of this program.
