We were sick of the inundation of unoriginal task managers that had swept the world of technology in the last few years. We felt a burning desire to bring to life the one task manager to rule them all - one that actually made the users want to complete the tasks.
What it does
Pointly is an innovative web service that allows administrators to set tasks for their users with a certain point value for each task. Admins also set rewards at certain point values, which provide the users with an incentive to complete their otherwise mundane tasks.
How we built it
This project was built on the Meteor.js web framework. It used HTML5 and Stylus for CSS3.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We managed to set up a fully-functioning user profile system that displays tasks that are either completed or yet to be completed in real time.
What we learned
What's next for Pointly
We plan on going into full web deployment soon.
