Tasks

Spike is made to enhance your workflow, putting the tools you need exactly where you need them. Tasks take your workflow to the next level, keeping all your important projects front and center, freeing up your brain to focus on more important things.

 

Spike Tasks are real-time, collaborative project management tools that help you organize everything — from your daily shopping lists to your team’s monthly to-dos.

 

Since Spike is powered by Email, all your Tasks have Spike’s powerful tools to make managing projects a breeze:

 

  • Real-Time Awareness: Collaborate in real-time on any Task. Know your project status at all times.
  • Reminders: Set reminders for you and your team to keep up with deadlines (here is how to snooze)
  • Advanced Search: Advanced email search tool lets you quickly and efficiently find everything in your inbox.
