"Sanglaz is an amazing tool."

What do you like best?

What I like the most about Sandglaz, is the simplicity of the software, is not complicated at all, and is a very complete software. I've been using since a long time ago, and I never thought in changed it, helps me a lot to organise my work and remember me stuff that I need to do. Keeps my aware on what I have to do. The interface is very fast as well, and I can access to them from everywhere.

What do you dislike?

Well, I consider the design of the software a bit lame. It needs to be more appealing to the customers. And sometimes is a little difficult to me to upload a document, doesn't allow me to do it, and that represents a problem for me.

"Sandglaz is great way for a stay at home dad to organize"

What do you like best?

It is super easy to create and manage tasks. I'm new to being a stay at home dad and there are lots of things to do and get done related to the house, the kids, and my wife. Whilst the kids are school is my most productive time, so helps to plan out the week. Replace the window shades, mow the lawn, get a gift for a kid birthday party, get a babysitter for date night, etc. Its also helpful to get emails out of my inbox if there's something I need to do. Sandglaz lets me organize for the week.

What do you dislike?

Sandglaz doesn't do the tasks for me, though I hear its on the product horizon :-). My wife isn't as nerdy as I am so I can't get her to use it yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

try it out, its easy to get started.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organizing my day and making sure important tasks get done. It generally reduces the stress of things getting dropped. Its nice to be able to check off things when they get done.

"Simple and effective for managing groups and projects."

What do you like best?

Flexibility. Sandglaz lets me manage group activity in the way that's most natural to me: establishing assignments, categories (hashtags), priorities, and general timelines, then easily adjusting everything week-to-week or month-to-month. When priorities change, projects need more time, etc, Sandglaz makes it easy to adapt, and everyone (including myself!) can still see what's going on and what they should be working on.

What do you dislike?

I haven't yet found a great way to visualize long-term activity projection for over, say, 6-12 months.

That said, Sandglaz does support on-the-fly hashtags, so I can easily tag scheduled tasks like #2015q2. I click on that to see all the scheduled activity for that quarter. Score again for flexibility.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you like the idea of having a) a shared to-do list that can easily be filtered and b) task scheduling that is easily adapted or adapts automatically, Sandglaz may be for you.

Try it out. Enter a few tasks of different types. Assign them to others and add some hashtags. Click on the task details to see all the things you can do: insert create checklists, insert comments, etc. Imagine compiling all of the activity you want to track into Sandglaz.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sandglaz is the core of how my group manages task assignments. All activity is represented, and everyone knows what they're doing individually and collectively.

Using Sandglaz in this way avoids myriad communication problems that can exist within workgroups. Priorities are clearer; the group operates more coherently; and tasks can change hands without losing information.

"Sandglaz is an easy-to-use and flexible way to manage all of my work projects"

What do you like best?

I like the flexibility of the grids/columns and how I can set-up each of them so that it corresponds to the needs of the project. Drag and drop tasks are great. And I love that I can post not only notes, but also a timeline of comments. I love that I can pull up a list of completed items to review in meetings with my boss. I meet once a week with my boss, and by the time the meeting rolls around, I can't remember everything that I did. But, with Sandglaz I am able to print out the list and review it in my meeting.

What do you dislike?

I wish that I could name the rows differently in different columns on the same boards. I would also love it if when sub-tasks were checked off they showed up in the list of completed tasks. I like to review what I've accomplished in a week, but unless I have ticked off the top level task, it's doesn't show in completed tasks.

Overall, my dislikes are pretty nit-picky.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're considering trying Sandglaz, it's only $5 for a month. It's totally worth the $5 to try it out for a month and see if you like it. Besides, I'm a fan of having skin in the game. Making even a small monetary commitment helps make sure you'll actually use a product and give it a fair shot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organization and tracking. It allows me to chunk and move things in very flexible ways. I need a flexible system because my focus is constantly changing, but I can't lose any information because I'll likely need to come back to projects that were bumped for more urgent things. It also helps me feel accomplished and see what I've done in a day or a week!

"Focused on simplicity yet has all the features I need"

What do you like best?

I like how snappy and fast it is! I can use #hashtags to categorize and @username tags to assign tasks as I type the tasks. It auto-detects links, and it syncs in real time. There is a nice focus on all the details that makes using the app easy. Easy means team buy-in: my team really likes using it.

What do you dislike?

It’s missing in-depth profiles, like an “About Me” section where a user would have the ability to describe themselves in the profile. It will be helpful for bigger organizations when you don’t necessarily know what everyone does.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's so inexpensive, you should give it a try. And once you try it, you will love how easy it is to use, and how easy it makes collaboration.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collaborate on tasks with my team. We plan out all our tasks in Sandglaz, and we discuss them, attach files and notes to them from within Sandglaz. It helps us collaborate and know who is working on what.

"Sandglaz makes my job manageable."

What do you like best?

It combines a time line, easy entry of tasks, as well as the clubbing together of tasks using hashtags. You can also have a long term bucket-list on the right side, which I really love.

Attaching files to tasks is very useful. As well as the subtask capability.

What do you dislike?

it doesn’t support IE9, only 10 and above.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a big believer in GTD & Eisenhower and have been painstakingly searching for a product that makes both happen. Finally, found Sandglaz. Now, I’m able to plan our tasks visually, and more effectively.

I'm about to take a higher responsibility role soon which will require much better time management and efficiency from me. When I plan, I like to do it more visually. I was looking for a box visualization so I can jot down things by time period. I was searching for something like this when I came across Sandglaz. I tried it out, and loved it.

Also, many of our employees work remotely, because of this Sandglaz saves us a lot of time. And being able to attach files to specific tasks, help us stay organized and ensure everyone has the latest version.

"Sandglaz review"

What do you like best?

Sandglaz is for teams. It is extremely focused on simplicity of learning and simplicity of product, without sacrificing conveniences of power users. So I’m very Impressed. Also, I love the keyboard shortcuts.

The @username feature of assigning tasks is very intuitive. It automatically notifies you of any tasks assigned to you, or any changes to them. Also tasks that are assigned to you from all projects are aggregated in one view.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if the date picker starts on Monday. or are able to add this option as a user preference

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been asked by the CEO of a small IT company to help him get his staff organized. I was looking for an easy to use intuitive tool that can help us collaborate, plan and manage projects. I also want to be able to track progress and allow each one of us to log in and view the progress as well. We don't want to use complex systems and need the learning curve to be fast.
