Design work is all about creativity, but sometimes you need a little help to make it truly shine. That's where collaboration and feedback come in! By bringing together diverse perspectives and ideas, you can take your work to the next level and identify new areas for growth.
And when you're working as a team, you're even more likely to achieve the best results. With multiple minds contributing their expertise, you'll be able to create a final product that truly meets the needs of your audience and achieves your design goals.
But managing this process can be a challenge, which is why Kerika's Design Huddle Template is such a game-changer. This template provides an ideal way for teams to collaborate and share feedback in a structured and organized way, so you can easily manage your design process and achieve your goals.>
Email is notoriously bad for productivity: too many people get involved in a thread, and pretty soon all that Reply All spam leave everyone feeling confused and frustrated.
Things get worse when you attach drafts of your writing and try to get comments: what started off as a simple MyArticle.docx quickly spawns MyArticle v2, My Article (John's feedback), My Article v3, and so on…
Important stuff gets lost in the avalanche of irrelevant emails, and it becomes all too easy for everyone to lose track of deadlines.
The challenge of coordinating tasks, keeping track of content, and collaborating has become more difficult now that people are working remotely: when folks are working in different locations, and at different times, making sure everyone is always on the same page is both harder and more vital.>
Design huddle involves working teams and stakeholders related to the projects. This makes it very easy for things to get lost or overlooked.
An effective design huddle brings together designers, creatives, and other stakeholders to discuss and review design projects, share updates and feedback, and collaborate on solutions.
By providing a forum for open communication and collaboration, design huddles help ensure that projects stay on track and that everyone is working towards the same goal.
That's where Kerika's Design Huddle Template comes in! This thoughtfully created template gives you a centralized place to manage all your design activities.
Try this template free, and see for yourself how Kerika’s very helpful features, like the ability to filter your tasks using custom tags, upload files directly into your Google Drive (where they are managed by Kerika for you), make life so much easier for you and your coworkers.
You can assign tasks to your team members, create custom tags to filter your tasks, and option to upload documents and files right into each task card.
And with each card having its own work status, it's easy to see at a glance where the task stands in the design process.
Kerika’s clean design makes it easy to see, at a glance, exactly where things stand: which tasks are getting done, and by whom.
So, say goodbye to endless email threads! Kerika's Design Huddle Template has everything you need in one place.>
Our users start with a specific problem they want to solve, for which Kerika happens to have a great template, but very quickly they discover that Kerika is the perfect tool for all their task management, team collaboration, and content management needs.>
Kerika comes fully integrated with Google Apps: simply use your Google ID, and you're good to go! Your files are stored in your own Google Drive, and that's going to make your IT folks happy!
Sharing files is super easy in Kerika. When you create a new file, all the members of the board automatically get write-access to it. Visitors get read-only access to your files. You can even create new Google documents from inside a Kerika task or board.
If you upload a new version of a file, or rename something from inside Kerika, that shows up automatically in your Google Drive as well. If a Google file is updated, that shows up in your Kerika boards as well.
Everything you do in your Google drive gets updated in Kerika in real time! So there's no need to manually manage any documents.
Once you start using Google apps in Kerika, you will realize how much time it saves you from manually managing documents within your team. You won't find this integration in any other tool.
As your projects get more complex and you end up with a lot of cards, Kerika's Highlights feature will help you stay focused on what matters most to you. One common use of Highlights is to spotlight the cards assigned to you:
With Kerika's Dashboard, you can stay updated on dozens of different projects at the same time.
Each option in Kerika's Dashboard is cleverly designed and helps you find everything you need in just a few clicks:
What's New & Updated: you don't need to check for updates on each board where you are a team member; Kerika summarizes it all for you.
What's Assigned to Me: use this option to focus on just those tasks that you are responsible for.
What Needs Attention: important stuff won't fall off your radar, just because a lot of other stuff is going on.
What Got Done: see, at a glance, everything that got done across all your projects – Today, This Week, Last Week, This Month, This Quarter. (No more writing or reading status reports!)
What's Due: a great way to plan your day, or your week, or a Sprint.>
Kerika will highlight exactly what changed, on every card on every board:>
When people are working in different timezones, confusion about due dates is common: Did you mean the end of my day, or the end of your day?
That problem doesn't exist with Kerika, which automatically adjusts due dates to each user's timezone:
In this example, a work item that is due at the end of the day in India is shown as due at 11:30 AM in California, reflecting the 8:30 hour timezone difference. (And, yes,Kerika automatically handles daylight savings time!)
If you need a daily summary of what's due sent by email, Kerika will send that to you at 6AM where you live.
The Kerika team understands very well what people need to effectively collaborate across countries, because the Kerika team is a distributed team, using Kerika to make Kerika.>
You can explore concepts within concepts and even incorporate your files, videos, images, and Web content along with your flowcharts.
You won't find this anywhere else: Kerika invented and patented this!
