Saving Your Tabs Productively; Update

It’s been a few weeks, so I thought it’s worth a refresh. Tabs To Tasks will help you reduce the number of web browser tabs you have open, save them as a tasks through a bookmarklet, and help you build a workflow to complete those tasks within our website service.

I posted to the London Startups group about this problem, and found that others in the community also experienced the issue of having too many browser tabs open. I want to develop the solution with users sponsoring the development. However, I didn’t feel far enough along.

So a little more work…

The initial prototype worked for me, and another was also using it. The number of tabs I had open had fallen dramatically. To progress and allow more people to come onboard it need authentication, so this has now been added. I paired with another great software developer mate, to ensure that there was a good test coverage. We’re confident that your list will not be visible to others, and they also won’t be able to edit it. The basics you’d expect. We’re confident that if we add more features, the automatic tests will now show us if this core functionality breaks.

Adding productivity enhancements in partnership with you.

So we can reduce the number of tabs open for users of our product. What’s next? Well, there’s 2 aspects. We want to actually turn these saved tabs, into tasks. And we want to make the whole process of this customer driven.

So, it’s time again to start getting YOU involved again.

We want to have people who have lots of tabs open, who not only want a solution, but are happy to vote once a week on the features they’d like to see. You’ll also get to make new suggestions if you want.

We’ll capture all of the voting in suggestions, and reprioritise once a week. We’ll do that in Trello.


We need a new name…

Whilst the prototype was simply called ‘The Stuff’ – As in save The Stuff, I always knew I’d rebrand. I started this blog with the thinking, we’re not just saving the stuff, but actually doing something with them afterward. I wanted to make sure this solution wasn’t just a bottomless pit to throw tabs into, but to ensure that they’re regularly ticked off, archived, or deferred. There’s various mechanisms we can use to do this, but it’s important to me this aspect is incorporated soon.

The new name reflect this vision that each tab is infact a future tab, and we’re calling this service Tabs To Tasks. You can like us on facebook or follow on twitter right now.

We’ll be making the payment for sponsorship available at £4 per week in the next few days. Please register your interest by messaging us on facebook, twitter or Ian direct.
