20 Ways to Plan for Student Success with Producteev feat. @cmspearman @meglish


“As an undergraduate student at Penn State, using Producteev on my android phone (Astrid sync) along with the webapp and google calendar sync really keeps me productive. Also, using labels and the new smartsearch feature allows me to categorize my tasks, which kept me on track as I successfully applied and was accepted to medical school” – Chris Spearman, Penn State. 

“I use Producteev to manage all of my course assignments, whether as whole project due dates or as individual tasks – whichever I might happen to need. I don’t know what I would do without the multicolored labels, and I love that I can make them match the tabs and folders I use for hard copies of work. I also use it to keep track of the courses I TA for, so I can better remember to get grades back to students and review their online content at a consistent rate. Being able to post notes to items is perfect – otherwise I end up with scribbles on scrap paper that I lose or toss. As much as I’d love to go fully digital, it’s not always an option, and Producteev is adaptive enough to meet my needs as each semester brings new requirements and challenges” - Meghan Dornbrock, Syracuse University.

Like Chris and Meghan, you can plan for student success with Producteev by:

  • Set notifications and never miss a deadline

  • Create smaller tasks for big projects 
  • Use the starring system to prioritize your list
  • Keep track of tasks that repeat regularly
