Done.

Can a format-agnostic structural framework empower users to create a dynamic and holistic plan for their day?

Done.'s main interface, a format-agnostic structural framework.

The lingering problem with "to-do" applications is that they seem to impose a specific workflow or interaction pattern on the user, while no two humans ever use their task lists the same way. The presumptuous nature of many of these applications frustrates most users to the point that they abandon the solution for a more intuitive routine. In the end, many users cobble together home-brewed digital products, while others stick to a pad of paper and a ballpoint pen, where they can structure things however they please.

Done. is a format-agnostic framework for task management that encourages users to set things up in a way that will work best for their lifestyle. It was born out of my own personal home-brew solution to task management– a precarious arrangement of Google Task lists in <iframe>layouts that I put together after trying (unsuccessfully) to use every To Do solution in the App Store's Top 10 list. I had attempted to use Trello to some success, but found it more suited for planning and progress tracking, not day-to-day task management.

A core value of this solution is that users are active participants in planning and managing their day. This empowering approach allows them to shift, modify, or delete tasks easily. Let's be realistic– sometimes, a task doesn't make the cut by mid-afternoon. Interactions for deleting tasks are meant to be emotionally-neutral and avoid shaming the user for adjusting their goals to reflect a reality.

Users have a high level of control over the appearance of task items, and can customize them to meet their self-designed management workflow.
Done. allows users to integrate with popular social sign-in solutions to speed the registration and login processes. Integration with Google will allow users to sync task due dates with Google Calendar.
