I’ve been using TADA lists for about 3 months now and I love them. They just do exactly what you would expect.
You set up a list and you can move the priorities around depending on how your plans throughout the day change.
I have lists created for
In Planning (soon to be handed to test)
Handed Back to Developement for defect correction.
Let me make clear that this is not meant to replace any defect management system you may have in place. Its far to basic for that.
However if like me your daily priorities are constantly changing and you need to maybe make other team members aware of what things are being worked on in which environments then I have found this as a quick and easy fix.
It can of course be used for many other things like shopping lists. I’ve taken my mobile phone shopping before and when my wife gets home she jumps on the PC and just updates my TADAlist with any items that she needs that I may have missed off.
I then get an email on my mobile phone and bingo I now have an updated list to walk around the shop with. Yes she could ring me but I’d have to write it down. I just find this just easier.
Maybe on that note in the future I should make a post about the perils of using technology just because its there.
Anyway enough of the digressing I hope you find the tool as useful as I and the people I work with have.
