Prioritize what matters in your day with Akiflow

Despite all the options available to manage calendars and tasks, protecting your schedule to prioritize work seems like a constant struggle. Akiflow understands that time is precious. This time-blocking tool encourages daily planning rituals by pulling your calendar and tasks into one place so you can effectively plan, protect, and review your day.

But tasks sneak up in unexpected places. They lurk within emails, team chat messages, and your team's project management tools. How can you wrangle everything to plan your day's to-dos—without spending hours finding everything? 

Luckily, you can create a simple Zap (our word for automated workflows) that automatically creates a task in Akiflow whenever you have a new task elsewhere, like Google Tasks. Automatically route those action items into Akiflow without app-switching or copying and pasting the details.

The challenge: It shouldn't be so hard to plan your day, right? But with tasks and schedules everywhere, it's easy to overlook critical action items your team depends on.

The solution: Stay on top of your priorities, no matter what tools you use. Automatically send new Google Tasks to Akiflow so you know which tasks to prioritize. 

Create Akiflow tasks from new Google tasks with a Zap.

Ready to try it yourself? To get started with a Zap template—our pre-made workflows—just click on it, and we'll guide you through the set-up process. It only takes a few minutes.
