A little app from ZURB that let's people set up tasks and then collaborate with others to knock 'em down.
Why a task list?
Managing to-dos can be a job in itself. How much harder would it be if you needed to share your list with the team?
Strike makes task lists and collaboration easy and fun. Just line 'em up and knock 'em down!
What is Strike?
Strike is a fast, fun list making tool. Your unique list is stored on the web, making it easy to access and share with others!
Wait a minute, a "fun" task list?
That's right! Who said tasks have to be boring? Just line 'em up, and knock 'em down! Share the URL to get others involved. You'll all quickly know what's been done, by whom and where you need to go next.
Why share a list?
Working in groups can be a challenge—having a common list makes it easier to collaborate, and it engages your team to work towards a common goal!
What makes a good list?
Everyone's lists are going to be different, but here are some ideas to help get you started with Strike.
Use it as a calendar of important events.
A quick look in the morning will help get you ready for that conference call at 3.
Keep an eye on your goals.
Do you want to write three blog posts per week? Great! Put a reminder at the top of your list to keep it in your head.
Take small steps.
Break down a project into smaller steps and put them on your list. Knocking down those smaller tasks will keep you and your team energized to work towards the same goal.
