Review after first year of using SkedPal

2019-04-17

After a year of using SkedPal daily, it is a crucial part of my time management and while there is room for improvements, the team is always updating and adding new functionality.

Pros

The fact that SkedPal uses smart scheduling to schedule my tasks for me increases my chances of actually completing my tasks and gives me a better overview of my day/week/month.

Cons

I would suggest better project management and tracking past recurring tasks to track habits and patterns.

A great task scheduling tool for starters

2019-10-09

Skedpal is extremely effective in making my plans come to fruition. I completely rely on it to plan,sort, and accomplish my daily schedules.

Pros

This is truly a novel feature of this application.

Cons

While the automatic rescheduling feature is unique, it is difficult to hard to find in a daily time management software.

Great product, using it everyday, but still isn't replacing my other calendar/task apps.

2018-06-20

- Ability to store all your tasks and activities in a single app - While not limiting yourself to one tool - SkedPal appreciates your calendar events. - Automatic re-scheduling!

Pros

Automatic scheduling.

Cons

I.e. sometimes my Saturday becomes workday and SkedPal just skips it for "Working hours" activities. Again, I don't have a solution, but I guess Time Maps dialog should allow to plan a map beyond single week.

SkedPal is the best time management software

2019-04-18

SkedPal has helped me go from struggling to manage my schedule to easily be able to manage my schedule.

Pros

SkedPal, once set up, will automatically schedule everything for you.

Cons

The UI is a little difficult to use in the beginning, but after using it for a day or two you will know where everything is.

One-of-a-kind software

2019-09-18

Skedpal is really awesome and I rely on it to help me understand my schedule and know what the very best task is to do at each moment.

Pros

Automatic rescheduling is incredibly unique and hard to find in a daily time management software.

Cons

I use Google Assistant to add my tasks to my to do list and I wish there was a more direct way of entering my tasks from Google Assistant directly into skedpal.

A must have if you are wanting to get more out of your day

2020-08-17

This is the best task management software I have found because it schedules your tasks straight into your calendar to ensure you 'get it done'.

Pros

The automatically scheduling of tasks around fixed appointments.

Cons

The UI isn't particularly flashy.

I always know what to work on

2019-09-18

Absolutely love it!

Pros

Time blocking is such an incredibly useful time management feature. I love how I can signify in red yellow or green what types of tasks I would like to do at a given time.

Cons

I wish it had a countdown timer to let me know how much time is left on my given task until the end of the event.

Skedpal is effortless trustworthy task management

2018-06-21

Manage 200 plus tasks and projects effortlessly.

Pros

I have found this to be a pretty good "set and forget" task management system which allows you to get on with being productive without scanning lists or prioritizing or lengthy daily planning sessions. and without the worry that you're about to miss some deadline or other.

Cons

This would allow me to move all my task tracking and management into one place and embed Skedpal into every aspect of my life.

Definitely recommend

2019-09-18

Overall, my experience with Skedpal has been great. While there are some improvements I think they could make, I plan on using it for the foreseeable future.

Pros

Automated scheduling is such a huge timesaver/stress reliever. The time maps are useful for helping me budget my time and scheduling only at the times I want to work.

Cons

Skedpal is fantastic for day-to-day scheduling, put I find other apps more useful for larger project management and it would be great if I could connect the two.

I started using this app since its trial period, and this is my favourite scheduling app!

2018-06-21

Better time management, more actually of convenience.

Pros

I love the fact that the app provides native Google calendar support without relying on Google play services, and directly analyzes your calendar events, also automatically updating your new schedule on the calendar.

Cons

It makes me reliant on the app to generate my schedule (it might be better to physically do it on pen and paper) but that isn't actually a down point. Even though I'm on a free subscription (for those who joined really early), I would love for it to be free for everyone!

SkedPal Heavy User Review

2019-04-17

SkedPal is great at keeping me working on the most important tasks, however one drawback is that it allows you to procrastinate because you know all you have to do to get back on track is to push the update schedule button.

Pros

I love that it allows me to prioritize my todo's then automatically organizes them by time map.

Cons

I would like for it to integrate back through Ourlook to access the original email that I forwarded to SkedPal.

A superb scheduler and the best combo of calendar+todo list for busy professionals

2019-04-17

And once I lose a chunk of time in the day, I can never get the day back because I dread having to look at a todo list and figure out what to do next, what to prioritise and what to discard from my day.

Pros

Skedpal will have automatically synced with your work calendar and rescheduled your day before you know it.

Cons

The time tracking that was there in beta is now missing.

Worth the energy and money

2019-04-18

I have tried lots of other task management systems and I always hated having to reschedule and re-prioritize my work.

Pros

Allows me to manage a lot of projects, tasks and moving parts easily.

Cons

Mobile version was less helpful to start but recent updates have made it better.

It is allowing me to timeblock my day in a much easier manner, as well as integrating with my task management tool, so I am creating once and working in multiple locations

Pros

I love it's ease of use, the continuous improvement and its adaptability

Cons

Was hard to understand the usability tricks at first, but once you get the hang of it, it works greate

Spend your time on the productive tasks, not scheduling your tasks

2019-05-04

Pros

It relieves my anxiety that I don't have time to complete all my tasks on time - I can see it in the agenda whether I can or cannot.

Cons

Easier integrations with different e-mail readers, project management applications etc would be useful (for example, browser addon to add task from any text on website, outlook addon, etc).

SkedPal is a time management system I always wanted

2018-06-19

It's allowed me to stop messing with my schedule and just have it do it for me.

Pros

What makes SkedPal unique is it's approach to task management. I had been thinking of something similar for a long time but could never find an app that did it.

Cons

It's a little clunky and the interface leaves some to be desired.

SkedPal has become an indispensable part of my weekly and daily planning

2018-06-20

Know what´s the most important task to focus on at any given time. Ability to update these options at any moment when new events arise in my schedule.

Pros

Years ago I literally thought "if only somebody would create a software that would help me plan my days and weeks in a way that it takes into account my goals, projects, deadlines, current available time AND that can adapt the scheduling to the many changes that will inevitably arise in my day to day life."

Cons

It has a little bit of a learning curve and there are some basic concepts in time management that are worth learning in order to make better use of the software and make sure it is the most effective tool for you.

The most effective tool I've ever used to maximise the scarcest resource I have - my time!

2018-06-21

Pros

The auto-scheduling, rescheduling and prioritising with integration to my calendar is the most effective way I've ever found of maximising my positive impact with my limited time

Cons

* The user experience looks a little dated - less clean than tools like Todoist for example * I'd like more dashboards showing how well I'm tracking to my plan so that the product and I can learn how to better allow time for work - machine learning on this maybe?

A very detailed way to plan your day

2020-08-09

I spent weeks looking for a tool like SkedPal. I wish I’d been using SkedPal for years instead of just months.

Pros

Love the feature set including time maps, priority flags, due dates, start dates etc.

Cons

UI is functional and easy to use but it could do with looking more modern.

It's a great, versatile software that quickly adapts to my ever-changing schedule.

2018-06-20

It then reschedules as I have time laid out in my calendar.

Pros

I LOVE how it automatically reschedules tasks that I may not have been able to get to that day.

Cons

It would be great if it had APIs with other like software to extend Skedpal's reach.

2018-06-19

Pros

Tasks have time budget that is allocated into slots - very useful and keeps me real when planning / reviewing my time.

Not possible to drag and drop tasks to specific time slots - only possible to schedule clicking, not as convenient.

Solves the BIGGEST productivity challenge facing the busy exec

2019-04-19

I really enjoy the app and cannot imagine my productivity workflow without it.

Pros

It's an added bonus that the app is available across devices and also works with Zapier, which makes my productivity workflow come to life.

Cons

The UI is slightly dated only because it's missing some of the "lively character" of some of the more modern cloud apps.

SkedPal is what I've been dreaming about.

2018-11-28

Using SkedPal is close to what I feel it would be like to have an assistant. There is a little learning curve but once you set your preferences, awesomeness ensues.

Pros

After countless experimenting with other task/project management software, I have found SkedPal.

Cons

In light of how useful this software has been to me in the short time I have been using it and due to the fact that I probably have not found all features yet, I have nothing to present here at this time.
