Task management system design
Advanced Task Manager was designed for android Task management system design phone to end tasks, kill processes, stop services from running, allow or disable programs in boot list, remove installed apps and view system information in one button click to free up space in memory, speed up your phone and saving battery. Once there are too many tasks running in foreground and background, it slows down your phone, drains your battery even causes some unexpected incidents to bring you a lot of inconvenience. I believe many of android users have suffered this kind of unwanted situations. So installing Advanced Task Manager (ATM)would be one of the easiest and quickest solutions for it.
ATM provides users with the abilities to manage tasks, processes and services that are running in foreground and background. Besides the option to prevent these items from running, it also gives you more operations, including, end the selected item or all items by a click, add the selected item to Exclude List, and remove it from Exclude List (if it has been added to Exclude List).ATM gives you an option to exclude certain programs that the widget cannot end. Exclude List is a list for displaying all the protected items, which can’t be ended, stopped or killed if they are added to Exclude List. As a result, it prevents some accident ended-operations, which may cause some unexpectedly problems. It turns red once it is added to Exclude List to help you distinguish from others. Advanced Task Manager also enables you to select auto-end feature. Once you activate auto-end feature, this app ends some items according the mode (namely, safe mode and crazy mode) chosen by users to increase phone’s available memories when your home screen is closed.
I believe sometimes you are impatient when it takes you too long to do other operations before all the items in boot list finishing start-up. I have the same experience, too. It is because too items in your boost list to slow your phone’s speed. ATM gives you an option to manage your boot list. It lists all the items that start along with the system, you have the options to allow or forbid the items in the list. You can choose a delayed time; those forbidden items will end automatically once the delayed time is up after the system is finished start-up.
With Advanced Task Manager, you also can easily uninstall your apps instead uninstalling them by another uninstaller or in Menu. You have an option to uninstall selected items or all items. But it enables “uninstall all” as you have to uninstall them one by one. This feature also can help you avoid the troubles of accidentally uninstalling all apps.
Keeping track of all the things you need to do is a valuable but often neglected skill. When we ignore this aspect of our work, we miss deadlines, work on the wrong thing at the wrong time and feel anxious and overloaded.
I don’t know many people who excel at managing their tasks. Few of us learn this skill in a classroom. Even those folks blessed with a mind for organizing things often admit that their system falls apart when they need it the most–during hectic, busy times.
While I have yet to find a task management system that will run itself or do your work for you, taking the time to find a system that works for you can significantly enhance your work and enrich your life.
Most people keep track of their work using one (but often several!) of the following techniques:
- You keep track of tasks in your head
- You keep track of things on paper or electronic lists
- You flag emails that require follow up or you mark them as unread to remind you to go back to them later
- You write things down on Post-It notes and stick them your computer monitor or desk
- You carry around a notebook everywhere you go
- You use the paper, files and folders on your desks as reminders of what you need to do
- You use a tickler file, i.e. a hanging file folders labeled 1 through 31 and January through December, and file tasks according to when you’ll work on them
More bad news: there is no single perfect system that works for everyone. However, I’ve found certain features indispensable. Kick the tires of your current system by seeing if it offers all these benefits:
1. You only have to look in one place to know what you need to do.
For many busy professionals, tasks are lurking in so many places (i.e. lists, Post-It notes, piles of paper, email in-box) causing tremendous anxiety and inefficiency monitoring all of these sources to figure out what to do next. We want to get all of our various tasks into one place so that we can prioritize our work and focus on one thing at a time.
2. You can clear off your desk without fear of forgetting to do something.
Many of my clients and students initially describe themselves as “visual” people–unless their work is out in piles, they may forget to do it. This fear of “out of sight, out of mind” is more often a sign of not having a system that they trust, and when we put a task management system in place that works, they are astounded by how much more effectively they can focus by giving themselves a clear desktop.
3. You are confident that you’re always working on your top priority, and it is easy to re-prioritize your work quickly and efficiently throughout the day as new things come in.
If prioritizing your tasks is not part of your task management routine, there’s a good chance that you’re not working on the right thing at the right time. Some systems aren’t even designed to allow you to prioritize; for example, in the Outlook task manager, you can assign tasks to a specific day, but you can’t arrange your tasks within that day in order.
Your system hopefully allows you reprioritize your tasks as often as you need to–several times a day depending on your job. Long lists that need to be re-written every time a new task comes in just won’t cut it.
4. Your system is as simple as possible to get the job done.
The system you choose has to be easy to use, or you won’t use it. Inconveniences, including carrying a book that is too bulky for your lifestyle, opening a program that you rarely use, keeping track of things in two places, or using a device that is or not with you at the right time are indications that the system is not simple enough.
Resist the urge with any system to make it more complicated that it needs to be.
5. You can to focus on one thing at a time and don’t get tempted by low-value tasks instead of working on your top priority.
The real disadvantage of a list–either electronic or on paper–is that you can see so many tasks at once and are tempted to complete the quick tasks just to make the list shorter or the easy ones because you’re not in the mood to tackle the tasks that will make the biggest impact. I call these “empty calorie tasks” since they really don’t offer anything of value but they’re hard to resist.
A solid task management system provides the foundation to working effectively and efficiently. But remember…no matter what system you choose, it won’t work unless you use it!
Curious about which system I use? My clients already know that the tickler system works best for me. It allows me to have one place to capture all of my tasks, clear my desk, prioritize my work and focus on one task at a time–and it’s simple to use. If you don’t have a system in place at the moment, it’s a great place to start.
