TaskForce Manages Your Tasks, Email Activity In Gmail (And We've Got Beta Invites)

Your inbox is a steady stream of incoming information. TaskForce sorts your tasks, emails and activity to help you work more efficiently. We've got 2000 beta invites so hurry and sign up!

TaskForce is a little window that lives in your Gmail, splitting your messages into types: information, action and broadcast. It lets you add tasks directly from its interface or through email. You can share tasks with others, even if they don't use TaskForce. You and others can comment on tasks, prioritise and attach files. It all lives in a small space in the top right corner of your Gmail and aims to make time spent in your inbox a lot more efficient.

Creating tasks using TaskForce is really simple. You just click the "New Task" button and enter the relevant information. When you're finished, you'll see your tasks detailed similarly to the picture on the left. You don't have to be signed in to Gmail to add tasks, however. TaskForce has an iPhone-optimised site for adding tasks when you're out. In the picture to the left you can also see the ability to add people to the task. If they're using TaskForce, the task will synchronise with their account. If not, they'll receive an email so they can still participate.

TaskForce also creates an activity feed to help clear out the numerous broadcast emails you receive every day. It works via filters, so you can specify virtually anything that you want to show up. It'll archive those messages to get them out of your inbox and save them to your TaskForce activity feed instead. If you want those messages to bypass your inbox entirely, you can set them to be delivered directly to TaskForce and TaskForce will insert them into your feed automatically — without the need for filtering.

TaskForce is currently free. It works with Chrome, Firefox and Safari. If you want to give it a try, TaskForce has provided 2000 beta invites. Once they're out, they're out, so act quickly! You can sign up here to get started.
