But now, say goodbye to the chaos of remote working because Akiflow is here to save the day! A time-blocking platform designed to help remote workers stay organized and boost productivity.
This blog post will show how Akiflow can help remote workers stay organized. And how it helps in keeping track of tasks.
How to keep remote work organized?
Working on a remote basis comes with its pros and cons. You often need help with communication and collaboration. With the ability to quickly pop into someone’s office for a quick chat or see who’s available and who’s not, remote teams may not be able to stay on the same page. Additionally, companies rely on various communication tools, making it challenging to keep track of all the conversations, files, and tasks.
With Akiflow, you can centralize your schedule and merge your tools in one place. In addition, by blocking time for your tasks in the calendar, you can easily stay on top of your workload.
You can access it everywhere as it’s available on macOS, iOS, Windows, and Android. In addition, Akiflow can help you maintain remote work organized through its various features, such as:
The purpose of time blocking is to help you manage your time during the day. You can divide your day into various blocks and set a task for each block.
You should be terrific at planning. All you have to do is split your daily time into smaller blocks. And then choose which tasks you need to complete in each time block.
Give Time blocking a try if you want to:
- Meet all your never-ending deadlines,
- Replace multitasking with focusing on one activity,
- Dodge distractions and procrastination,
- Prioritize tasks better
Initially, it might be overwhelming as you might not know the exact hours needed to complete a task. However, with practice, you’ll nail it.
How often do you forget that you have a meeting with a client? You failed to join because it got out of your mind, and you might not receive any notifications.

But with Akiflow, you get alerts before your important meetings, so you can hop on a call simply with just one click and rock it. Depending on your preferences, you can choose what notifications you want to receive, how often, and when.
