The Covid-19 pandemic has entirely changed the way we work. Working from home has become the new normal and while we are adjusting to this new transition, proper organization of our time and effort is a necessity. Organization isn't about perfection, it's about efficiency, reducing stress and clutter, saving time and money, and improving your overall quality of life. We at Planboard aim to achieve the same. With our user-friendly interface, it becomes easier for you to plan your days well in advance.
What it does
PlanBoard serves as a perfect tool to manage your time, it is designed by keeping the fact in mind that we as humans can only do enough! The Planboard has incorporated features like a calendar that will help you maintain your schedule. A to-do list that would make sure that you are always up to date with your work. A due dates panel would make sure that you never fall behind. Additionally, there is a section for break reminders. This is all done via the Plan My Day part of our website which sets us apart, the website will search to find your most crucial due dates, assignments and create a timetable that ensures your work is done without having you suffer from burnout due to nonstop work.
Challenges we ran into
Our first attempt at this project was done via WordPress. At first, this method worked well however we constantly ran into an error when we tried to make changes, as the API refused to allow us to make too many changes too fast. We solved this problem by switching our code to Codepen.io and GitHub, thus allowing us to continue creating Planboard on a larger scale
What's next for PlanBoard
In future we also plan to incorporate features like mind games with your peers that will help you to refresh your mind. And also, ways to enable access to distracting sites for a particular time limit in order to maximize productivity.
