Over the weekend I had an idea and after day and a half (mostly spent in design) the final “product” is ready. It’s a tool for deadlines.
The idea: It came when I had tough conversation with a client of mine about some money which he owe. I wrote a short email notifing him that if he don’t pay within 2 weeks, we are stopping the supprt and cutting one of his main functionality (since he didn’t pay for it) of his app. And I was thinking: Woudn’t be nice to have a tool which could track the deadline like “You have 14 days, 23 Hours and 30 Minutes to pay is, otherwise – no support” – short and clear. Well this is what the Deadline tool is doing. Here it is:
The main functionaliy: At the first screen you need to select date and time then the deadline is reached as well as the target name and the task (message) which need to be completed. When you submit the form it will create a short url which is the actual counter. This url can be send to the target.
You can also set target’s e-mail as well as yours. If you did it you will receive a mail with a link when the deadline is reached. so both parties will be notified.
Few ideas for deadlines:
- Set deadline for business client (like me :))
- Set deadline to your roommate to move out
- Set your personal deadline to reach some level of income, or career growth
- Set deadline to your govermnent…
Or whatever you imagine. Please use this for fun mostly!
Hello Nik. This is a great idea. I see this post quite late, but I use similar functionality in the Trello platform. There is a way to create a card for a task and set a deadline for execution. Trello will periodically notify you before the deadline expires. Regards.
