For your job, wich features are important?
Precise note taking during meeting and track my tasks from my notes are features critical to my daily work. Managing my projects is a feature that is critical in my personal organization indeed, I manage many projects at the same time so it is important that I have a clear vision of this.
However, the meeting minutes and manageme client are useful features from time to time.
Could you describe your business workflow:
|for taking notes and handling meeting minutes?||I took my notes on my own and it only concerns me most of the time. Concerning the meeting minutes, I am slowly starting to use it (since two week), and it is true that the function is good but for the moment I do not use it regularly.|
|to manage tasks?||Every day or almost I list into Beesy my new tasks to do. If a customer calls to discuss about a problem or a project, I list the tasks into and I use the duedate for the achievement of each task.
Every morning, I check on the dashboard my tasks and I organize my day according to priorities.
According periods Beesy helps me for 70-80% of my tasks.
|to manage projects?||Management very “dynamic” for my projects. We work on short projects, 3 to 6 months in general. Project management is fairly informal or via Agile Scrum.|
|to manage your clients?||We meet our clients on average 2-3 times per project. Sometimes less if geographical distance is important. We organize regular calls and we send an e-mail recap with the main tasks to do. In the case of customers such wen or communication agency, it is them who write the meeting minutes of these projects.|

Which features should have Beesy to make you even more efficient?
– A handwritten note taking in small cartridges tasks / to do / person etc. Not an entire page, just a small single cartridge.
– Able to put the name of the folder or project in the default text “Make” for example “ABCD Project – Make”. Ideally can be a token system to manage the default texts.
