As you know, TaskRay is a great tool for easily managing, tracking and reporting upon all of your Tasks and Projects directly within Salesforce. And to help save time with repeating processes you can also create and clone project templates. Wouldn't it be great if you could have Salesforce automatically clone a TaskRay Project Template based upon whatever criteria you wish?
We are happy to announce that on January 27, 2017, TaskRay will get a new support site. Our new site will have all of the features you need such as “submitting a ticket”, sharing feature ideas, and support articles. But, now it will also have...
It's hard to believe that two weeks ago we set out for our yearly sojourn to Dreamforce 2016. It was another jam-packed week filled with meeting customers, old and new friends, and learning and sharing information about Salesforce and TaskRay.
Slack is a cloud-based team collaboration tool, and TaskRay is a cloud-based project management tool. They truly complement each other and help people get more done, more quickly and in a more fun way than ever before.
With our August Release, we are taking project data visualization to the next level. The new left sidebar allows you to quickly access project data by five new default views - Inbox (My Projects + My Tasks), My Projects (My Projects + All Tasks), Favorites (Starred Projects), Delegated (Tasks I Created and Assigned to Others), and Recent Projects (5 Most Recently Viewed).
Many prospective customers ask us what the difference is between TaskRay and products that are specifically designed for managing Agile Software Development. This question is something that has fundamentally shaped TaskRay from its earliest days, before a line of code was written.
On the heels of TrailheaDX and the Summer 2016 Salesforce release, TaskRay is happy to add three new Components to our existing library. Our product development team is excited to continue their trailblazing work on Lightning Components for TaskRay. This summer we’ve created three new Components that our users will find particularly valuable.
During our time at Dreamforce, we got to speak with a lot of people interested in using TaskRay. We got some great questions such as what’s a native app, what kind of customizations are possible, and does everyone in my organization have to have TaskRay? These are all great questions. But the one that we got which I thought deserved a post of its own was—Why would you need or want project management in Salesforce in the first place?
Here at Bracket Labs, all of our apps are 100% native to Salesforce. But what does being a native app even mean? Why is it important? What’s the difference between a native and non-native Salesforce app? Will it affect my data? Is it secure? How do I know if an app I am installing is 100% native?
It’s particularly interesting to consider risk management as a benefit of project management, as the PMI study finds that over one-third of projects fail to meet their business intent. And there’s real cost to those failures, as one-third of the budget spent on those failed projects is unrecoverable.
Everyone knows change is hard. Humans are, after all, creatures of habit. It helps us to have stability in a chaotic world. Generally speaking having good habits can be beneficial, allowing us to be productive.
However with the rapid explosion of technology, the pace of change is increasing, and we have to change at ever-increasing rates to stay competitive.
It's a familiar story for anyone who has purchased software for their business. You shop for the right solution, make the purchase and set about using the product with best intentions and unbridled enthusiasm. Now fast forward into the future: the product is half-heartedly used. The team resents the way the product “gets in the way” of doing their work. A growing number of individuals find excuses to spend less and less time using the product, with only threats from their management keeping them in it at all.
If Eric Wu weren’t the co-founder of Bracket Labs, tasked with sales and customer success, he’d like to be running a surfing school in Hawaii, possibly with a bowl of potato chips and French onion dip at the ready.
Put that in his futures file.
Meanwhile, he’s busy building high-quality collaboration and productivity apps for the Salesforce AppExchange.
Yesterday, Salesforce announced the new Lightning experience. A transformational change to Salesforce for customers, developers, and partners. Bracket Labs is excited to be an early adopter of the technology for our TaskRay app—redesigning our interface to be more in-line with the new Lightning Design System AND offering Lightning components on the AppExchange.
Yesterday, Bracket Labs revealed TaskRay for wearables, which extends business processes to devices like the Apple Watch to help improve mobility and productivity at work.
TaskRay was built with the Salesforce Wear Developer Pack, an agile platform that provides enterprise developers with sample code, documentation, demos and reference apps, allowing them to extend Salesforce implementations to wearable devices.
Last year Bracket Labs was one of the partners that worked with Papa Murphy’s, the fifth largest pizza chain in the United States, to create a new franchisee onboarding system Pathway using our TaskRay app and the Salesforce Communities platform.
Blakely had a chance to sit down with the seriously awesome Mike Gerholdt for a wide-ranging discussion about Marketing, Project Management, awesome Salesforce apps, managed packages, Dreamforce 2011 and more.
Co-founder Blakely Graham has known Ronald Lewis through the Denver/Boulder startup scene for a number of years. So it was cool to have him stop by to talk about the Bracket Labs startup experience while doing a video interview for StartupWeekly.
