This is an user story from one of our customers - Janis. He has used Hiburo while studying in University and wants to share the experience.
Before I started to work on my Bachelor's project my supervisor suggested that I should use a task management application in order to track my activities. It was necessary not only to be organized in the way I would do things but also because the workflow has to be discussed and analysed in the reports of my thesis.
At the time I knew that Lauris was working on Hiburo, although the tool was still in beta stage, he was more than happy to provide access to it. In a way it was a win-win situation - as Lauris would get an extra opinion (and bug reports as well) on the service he was building and I could plan my work and track how things go.
Of course it took a short while to familiarize with the tool but I have to say that it is pretty straight forward to use. I made a decision to divide the work that has to be done in time frames of one week, as I would meet my supervisor at the end of each week and discuss the progress of my work. And I believe that this is where I could harness some of the great features of Hiburo. Obviously it is possible to create tasks and create subtasks for each task, assign deadlines and even assign other users as performers, but the thing that was important to me was that I was able to write comments for each of the tasks. I value this feature highly because not always it was possible to fulfill my own goals (missing deadlines), therefore it was utmost important to keep track of what went wrong and the reason for that as well, as I mentioned earlier - process of how the work was done has to be discussed in reports of the project as well. By having discussions with my supervisor on all the involved processes of the current task it allowed me to carry out a better plan for the next week, as my notes and conversations with supervisor provided better understanding of the scope of the project as well as the fact that I was just trying to do too much at once.
Keeping that in mind, I have to say that Hiburo is way beyond just a to-do application. Hiburo allowed me to successfully perform my project past my expectations. I wish to every Hiburo user to have great experiences by allowing this service to do the job for them and keeping their mind on what's really important!
