Use in Korea
Why is Voo2do the best task manager in Korea?
Voo2do is the best fit for getting things done (GTD).
Disadvantages of other task managers used in Korea:
- Trac - To view the projects in progress, you must click on them.
- Remember the Milk- already see a work history that can not be erased except those shortcomings are due.
This article is taken from a computer program designer's blog. #1
Koreans do not use Voo2do for a "GTD". But one Korean thinks Voo2do seems to be the most appropriate program. #2
- A Korean man blogged about a method created by David Allen, called GTD (Getting Things Done). His method looks like it suits the specific purpose Voo2Do was created for.
- With Voo2Do you can:
- create projects, projects plans (tasks)
- can decide what action to take
a) do it
b) prioritize your tasks
c) assign the task to someone else
d) set deadlines
e) time your tasks
Watch the video that was created by our Korean International Partners, Eun Jung Hyung, Yeon Soo Park, and Minhee Kim. The video is an interview with their professor in Korea about the international use of Voo2Do.
While Voo2do is not widely used in Korea, there are many similar programs that Koreans prefer:
1. Franklin Covey planner
- Unlike Voo2Do, the Franklin Covey planner #3 has spread internationally and is used in Korea because of its adaptability to foreign countries.
- There is a cost to purchase a Franklin Covey Planner. #3 This money has allowed the company to expand and put money towards adapting their product for international users. Voo2do is an absolutely free application.
- Since Voo2Do is free, there are only so many changes that Shimon Rura (creator of Voo2do) can make to the program.
2. Google Calendar #5
Google Calendar is a free Web-based mail account. With Google Calendar, you can share your calendar with friends and even retrieve their schedules. Another benefit of using Google Calendar is that Microsoft (MS) Outlook can search the information.
3. Yahoo! Calendar #6
The Yahoo! Calendar is similar to Google Calendar or other online calendars. A nice feature of Yahoo! Calendar is that you can choose which events you would like to be public and which you would like to keep private.
