Notifications (alarms) on free app

If I have a paid version of the app and my assistant has the free version, will their app notify / remind them of due events or do they have upgrade to the paid version?

Hopefully that's not the case, it would be rather disappointing if it was.

Hi Richard,

Reminders are for Premium users only. So to be clear, there is only one version of our app. If you mean your assistant will log into your account, then yes of course reminders will work without issue. If signing into their own account, then no, they need to be Premium as well.

Regards,
Brendon.

Hi Brendon,



Thank you for responding so quickly.



I just discovered your App recently, my friend uses it to assign tasks to his assistant. I thought it would great to use for myself, to assign tasks to my team members. I also found your App listed on Forbes list of The 9 Best To-Do List Apps For 2014, I have been going through them today.



A lot of them are very similar in functionality, the main aspects that I am looking for are:

Ø Sort my own tasks by project

Ø Create projects for individual employees and monitor their progress

Ø Privacy of my projects



I like your app so far, I am disappointed in the fact that I would have to purchase each employee a Premium package in order for them to have the alarm / notification feature. Maybe it should be approached as a paid manager can push tasks to a employee target on a free account. The employee target can use the free version with notifications but they can’t create projects outside their manager’s project folder unless they choose to pay for the upgrade(?).



Best Regards,



Richard Hill

Hi,

We have projects, so you can sort your tasks within each project. You can share which ever project you'd like with an employee but there is no way to track progress. You can see completed tasks within that project, but no way to know whom completed (it should still say who it was assigned to though).

If you do not share your projects they are 100% private.

As for how sharing works, you can share with free users, and they will get notified when someone makes a comment, or assigned a task to them. Its just simply the reminders for the task themselves they will not be able to do.

We will consider such options as you mention in future updates.

Regards,
Brendon.
