"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."Sir Richard Branson
My first experience with Sched was as a speaker on a conference event being organized by our foreign collaborators. As my first foreign speaking engagement, I was naturally extremely nervous, but Sched made collaborating with the organizers so easy and that I felt very much at ease and ended up delivering an exceptional session. After that experience, I recommended trying Sched for our own subsequent conference events.

I like how tasks can be set up and viewed in so many different ways: by start date, due date, task project boards by category, priority, mind map, and a centralized planner. I use the planner as the single point when I am working to see all tasks that need to be done NOW, Next, or Soon - regardless of project, location, etc. Ayoa is a great tool to for those using a "Getting Things Done" - type methology. And yet, I have boards by project both personal and work, categorized and prioritized. The navigation is clean from one view to another, so you can see the big picture, and quickly dive into the specifics, and move from one project to another.
Quoted by CBS News, Ayoa is a 'unique twist on task management'. Ayoa is an all-in-one online whiteboard where you can brainstorm ideas, work together and get things done. With a unique blend of whiteboards, mind mapping, task management and team collaboration features, individuals and teams of any size can do it all – whether it’s planning a project, conducting effective meetings, or anything in between. Gaining global popularity and praise for its innovative approach, Ayoa unlocks the productivity potential of individuals and teams worldwide. With Ayoa, you'll gain a beautiful user-interface, and be equipt with everything you'll need to plan, manage and achieve anything, beautifully.
Communication is the main problem that Sched solves. It's an at-a-glance snapshot of an entire evening that easily drills down into specifics. It invites interaction, so that's another communication problem solved/helped. I couldn't be more thrilled to have Sched working on my event's behalf. Thank you!

We used to publish our own website with conference info; it had the basic info, but it was hard to keep the pieces consistent. Now we link to the Sched site from our event page and attendees find everything there. Speakers can post their pix and handouts and complete/update their profiles and send e-mail blasts to all who signed up for their workshop. We got good reporting and from it (and Google Analytics) see a high engagement rate (not just page views; over half set up accounts and created a personal schedule). This is all from their lowest service level/tier; higher levels integrate more with registration/payment etc., but we already have an online store and used it for front-end registration.

It wasn't too difficult to get everything set up, but we needed a human to help us select the right package to purchase. It was way too difficult reaching someone and we were actually told that no one could assist us for at least another week because that department was going to a conference.

I have used Ayoa since its beginning as Droptask and are terribly affected with the approach the developers have listened to the users and developed a most helpful coming up with and collaboration tool

I compared ALL of the various options on the market, and after spending a long time evaluating each one, Ayoa - which started as a complete unknown - ended up taking the prize. We then converted 400 mind-maps into their system, and have been enjoying the new features and working with the development team.

|Love the easiness of selecting which sessions I wanted to attend
|It then stored it and made it super easy for me to know exactly where to go
|My district uses Sched to schedule our entire district professional training
|This is fabulous I love that it emails me my schedule and I can access it all day as I attend trainings
|I also love the ability to email attendees from the platform and how they also get a daily reminder
|It is also wonderful how we can personalize the system with our own branding and images
|This was a perfect option for our needs this year, and now that we know more about how it can be used, it will be used more often for our future conference needs."
|We have received many complaints within 24 hours of launching the service
|The lack of Spanish interface, because we are in Peru
|It is difficult to find your meeting sometimes
|There are so many meetings scheduled
|Small landing/home page with limited customization."
|I have used Ayoa since its inception as Droptask and have been very impressed with the way the developers have listened to the users and developed a most useful planning and collaboration tool
|It is the best software to draw organic mental maps faithful to the principles of Tony Buzan
|A wonderful tool that we have incorporated into the heart of our business - indispensable to how I work
|Feedback from students (mature PT students doing construction management modules at Levels 5-6) was very good with only a few not liking the "new" way of learning, presenting and logging research etc."
|Some sudden software closures are annoying and perhaps denote a certain obsolescence of the technology with which it is developed
|Ayoa does, sadly, have one massive Achilles heel: the Dependencies function doesn't automatically adjust the start dates of dependent tasks if one changes the start/end dates of the parent task
|On more than one occasion, a bug has caused some topics to be lost while copying/pasting - this is very intermittent, but has happened
|The task manager was quite difficult to learn at first especially trying to create critical paths."
