Understanding today’s data-visualization imperative can be a little bit over the top to all those who got their professional start on all those spreadsheets, dashboards, relational databases, and traditional business intelligence (BI) tools of the 1990s and 2000s. These tools turned up not to be quite equipped for handling today’s massive amounts and discordant types of data.
This is why more and more people are turning towards interactive data-visualization apps and other tools.
They help even non-technical employees make better business decisions and organize their work in a better – that is: much simpler and quicker way.
So, not-so-slowly, everything is getting more visual than ever before.
The final goal is to save time by providing all the data in a way that can be understood at just a single glance. By creating visual representations that communicate relationships among the work that needs to be done to viewers, organizing your workflow is getting easier and more transparent.This communication can be achieved through the use of a systematic mapping between graphic marks and data values in the creation of the visualization.
Of course, Teodesk stepped right into it by creating its Teo Timeline.
The user can see existing connections and set time-frames for the tasks. For quickly getting the important info on a particular stage of the board, we use colors – so the state of the task is known just by simply looking at the timeline.
For example, if the time limit for completing the task is exceeded, then the task cells will be shown in red. If the person responsible for the task is keeping it within previously agreed time limits – the green on the timeline will be there to keep you confident that everything is going according to plan.
Basically, our timeline transforms the task board into a kind of a Gantt chart, but in a much less complicated and demanding way. The biggest benefit is that there is no double work. You can plan, delegate and communicate using a Teodesk board and then switch to the the Teo Timeline, which is automatically generated from the information you previously input.
In other words, we took all the best from Gantt, all while adapting it for the fast pace that the today’s rhythm demands. Our timeline is simple to use, quick in giving you all the info you need and easy to apply to any given task type or any industry whatsoever.
If you’re keen on knowing more about Teodesk timeline and its application, please do contact us and we’ll do our best not to leave any doubts about it.
Because that is what we are here for – to help you get the most of your time at work.
