Show HN: Task management app that auto schedules tasks to meet deadlines (bigticks.com)

Hi all,

We’ve created a simple task management web app but with one important difference; it automatically schedules your tasks and calculates your workload so you can see:

• if your workload is achievable

• which tasks to do next and the time to spend each day to meet deadlines more sustainably

• when you’re likely to finish your tasks if you don’t have enough available time

• when you’ll become free to take on more work

We built Bigticks because we needed a simple way to visualize our work against our available time, so we could quickly decide if we needed to work overtime (and how much) or get extra help, or negotiate extensions before it’s too late.

There’s no need to manually allocate time slots for your tasks or create your timeline.

All you need to do is specify your to-do list and your time constraints then hit the Schedule button and it’s done automatically.

At this stage Bigticks is a simple MVP to demonstrate our automatic scheduling, timeline creation and workload balancing. We’re trying to assess if others find these features as important as we do in managing work.

We’d love to get some early adopters who could also provide some feedback please (its currently free).

Thanks and we’d love to hear from you.
