Benefits of shared to-do lists

Allowing team members to choose their tasks gives them a sense of autonomy and ownership over their work. They are more likely to feel motivated and committed to the tasks they chose.

Selecting tasks that align with their skills, interests, and energy levels make people more productive. They can consider their personal strengths and preferences, so their time and skills are used effectively.


Gamify your team to-do list

Gamification adds an element of fun to the task management process. The interest and involvement in completing tasks. It turns mundane activities into more enjoyable experiences. A friendly competition creates a sense of urgency and excitement to completing tasks.

Set up a reward system that encourages your team to take action. Everyone is much less likely to procrastinate while having fun!

Gamify anything with Zelos

Gamifying a shared team task list is an excellent way to boost motivation, engagement, and productivity among any type of team.

The Zelos gamificaton features are very flexible and you can customise the game according to your needs.

✅ Set clear objectives and rules: Define the goals of gamifying the task list. Establish and communicate clear rules and guidelines for how the game will work. Make sure all team members understand the objectives and are on board with the gamification process. Zelos has a handy Notice feature that can keep your game rules on top of the app dashboard.

✅ Create a point system: Decide your point system that you can use to assign scores for completing tasks. You can assign different point values based on the complexity, urgency, or importance of each task. Make sure that every game administrator adheres to the same rules!

✅ Create leaderboards: Maintain a leaderboard that displays the points earned by each team member. You can also host multiple leaderboards at the same time. For example, you could have separate competitions for tasks completed this week, and tasks completed during the whole month.

✅ Rewards: Consider offering rewards for reaching the top of the leaderboard. Rewards can be anything from small tokens of appreciation to more substantial incentives. We also recommend to celebrate team achievements and individual accomplishments publicly. Acknowledging their efforts will reinforce the positive aspects of the gamified task list.

Remember that gamification should be enjoyable, not forced. Make participation optional, and ensure the game does not add unnecessary stress to team members.

You should also periodically assess the effectiveness of the gamification strategy. If something is not working as intended, be open to making changes and improvements. Tailor your gamified tasklist process to suit your team’s unique needs and preferences. Keep experimenting, collecting feedback, and iterating on your approach to make it a successful and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
