The majority of our team is in engineering and thus have been assigned groups to work on various projects given throughout our required engineering courses. A web based app like Productiv+ would make our collaboration much easier and more efficient, and could be applied to any sort of group work in the future.
What it does
Productiv+ is a collaboration tool used to moniter team progress on a project through organizing a list of tasks and substasks and the number of hours each member has contributed to the project. It also shows who has contributed the most for a given project and allows for coordination of task completion through a chat feature within the site. Another main functionality is the ability to see other active members of your team as a method to boost productivity.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Besides basic HTML understanding, our team did not have any experience with web development and we ended up being a bit overambitious for an all freshman team, designing a rather robust website. However, using our existing skills, along with knowledge aquired during the course of the hackathon, to put together a working site for demo.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- Implementation of a self-updating stopwatch on a web page
- Google oauth2 (login system)
- Putting together a website that has a meaningful application to life and work
- Aesthetics and design of web pages-especially the index page
