Improve team productivity with visibility of everyone’s daily actions


Improve team productivity with visibility of everyone’s daily actions

Actioned is a new type of productivity tool which helps individuals and teams get more of the important things done. By planning a few key actions for each day and making them transparent across the team, users can better focus on getting those things done and feel motivated by a sense of accomplishment. A little peer accountability doesn’t hurt either!

Actioned has a focus on daily action lists, but teams can also manage their ongoing task lists and goals. It's one place to keep everyone more productive. Actioned can be used by individuals or teams.

Hi all, Actioned has been brewing inside me ever since I started working with remote teams. I'd find myself oscillating between working extremely closely with team members to sometimes wondering if they were even working!

I didn't want to use time tracking software as I find that invasive and a sure way to destroy trust. I also wanted to move away from focusing on time - as that's not what being productive is all about.

I realized that I just wanted a simple tool that allowed everyone to note down their plans for the day, and then tick those things off as they did them. Initially we used Google Sheets and found the system to be very effective - but it could be improved... Interestingly, most people said they felt more productive just because they became more deliberate about how they spent their time.

We've been in Beta for a couple of months now and have a handful of teams and many more individuals using Actioned - and most reporting great results.

I'm happy to expand that now and invite you guys to try it out and give us your feedback too!
Super tool for tracking tasks and managing our priorities in the week. Its simplicity is powerful.
@jmdnz Thanks Jay. I think prioritization is the foundation of most success. Choose what's most important to do and then do it!
Congratulations Fiona, and thanks for letting us have early access during your initial beta! Over the last few months since release, not only has Actioned helped our distributed team ‘get on the same page’ in terms of what everyone is working on, but it’s actually helped increase our understanding of each other’s work styles and approaches. It’s also helped us identify that we were previously overestimating the number of things we could complete in a given time frame. This meant we weren’t actually getting to some of the important things and instead were bogged down on lower priority tasks. Since using Actioned we’re much better at zooming our focus down to just the three or four Actions each day that will make the biggest impact on the business. It’s exciting to see how this is transforming our approach and results already! Well done – Keep up the great work!

Disclosure - Actioned is Fiona App-ified :)

Fiona is my sister-in-law and I’m the co-founder of a SaaS that has over 26 000 users, and a largely remote workforce, so I jumped at the opportunity to start using Actioned as soon as the first Beta version was available.

Those who know Fiona personally, or have followed her professionally over the years often have one question - How does she get so much done? Whether it’s summiting Mt Everest, building successful businesses, having children, surviving cancer, moving to France, and a whole lot more - Fiona has a remarkable capacity to get things done! With Actioned, Fiona has identified the keys strategies that enable her and other ‘do-ers’ to achieve, and has turned these into an easy-to-use productivity app for teams. That’s why I think of Actioned as ‘Fiona, App-ified for teams’. Imaging having a team full of people, located anywhere, getting the priority things done every day!
Actioned is just so simple and easy to use, an easy learning curve and user friendly. Highly recommend if you are time poor and want to just jump in and use without any need to learn, its just so simple :)
Starting a new job and needing to keep track of multiple workflows I have found Actioned really handy to make sure I don't forget to follow up on actions. I work between two offices and also spend a lot of time onsite so I've found Actioned a really effective way of keeping track of my To Do List. Previously my desk and computer screen were littered with post-it notes and I would struggle with having my notepad with me at different locations and would end up starting a new one and then not having it to hand to check my notes or make new ones. But I can use Actioned online on either of my laptops in either of my offices and on my phone when I'm onsite. It has helped me provide a more timely and efficient service to clients and helped save the planet by reducing my paper usage!
Actioned strikes a perfect balance between a structured GTD-style to-do system, but with enough flexibility to manage teams & focus without becoming totally obsessive. Clean, elegant interface even though it is still in beta. Easy to use but deceptively powerful. Looking forward to improved mobile device usability and more features. Still useful and valuable at the current state though.
Working from different parts of the world can be a challenge in communication and productivity.

Actioned is a great tool to overcome that challenge! I love the simplicity of it!

Though still in Beta phase, Actioned is helping our team a lot. We're very much thankful that we have this powerful tool at our disposal.

We're so excited to have Actioned with us moving forward to greater heights with our company.

Sending love and support to Fiona and the rest of her team!
My team and I love Actioned for its simplicity and transparency. Fiona and her team have done a great job and are very approachable, making our experience quite smooth for a beta product. Highly recommend it to people with remote or distributed teams.
