Sending and receiving automatic reminders

This helps in efficient management of your workplace.
Switching between tasks and projects
These apps can also be used for switching between tasks and projects, and getting information about specific ones without having to waste a lot of time in the process. By typing in specific keywords, such as project or task names or even client names, you can get all relevant details.
