General FAQs

What is Power.ME?

Power.ME is a groundbreaking new tool that allows you to manage all aspects of your life. Accomplish everything you need to do at work, home, or anywhere! Need to collaborate on a project or task? No problem. Power.ME lets you collaborate simply so you can get the job done as efficiently as possible.

What devices does Power.ME support?

Power.ME is available in three versions and on three platforms. Users can choose from using the Web, the iPad, or the iPhone (an Android application is forthcoming). The applications for the iPad and iPhone are available in the Apple iTunes store and are an enhancement that enables users to be more flexible and mobile in their life management. The Web app is available by going to Power.ME and logging in to or registering for a Power.ME account.

Can I collaborate my tasks and projects with others?

Absolutely! A central function of Power.ME is helping you collaborate on the things that need to get done with those that need to do them. Collaboration is easy when Power.ME teams up with Sync & Share; feel free to watch our tutorial on delegating or visit our user guide to learn how to use this function.

How do I synchronize between the Web and my iPhone/iPad?

Getting your information between different platforms is as easy as the push of a button. If you’re syncing from your mobile device, tap the Sync button on the Toolbar to upload to the Web server any changes that you have made and to download any new information found on the server. (NOTE: This service is only available to Power.ME Sync & Share subscribers. Register for a free, no-risk 30-day subscription.)

Does Power.ME cost money to use?

Once you have the software (Web app is free to registered users; optional mobile versions available for purchase in the iTunes store), Power.MEs essential features are free. Extra features (task sharing, multiple-platform syncing, and secure content backup) require Power.ME Sync & Share, which has a yearly service fee of $39.99 ($0.11/day). This is substantially lower than other competitors’ pricing.

Who is Power.ME made for?

Power.ME is a tool that will benefit anyone, from the big business executive and the stay-at-home mom to the freelancer and the lowly college undergrad. Power.ME can give anyone more control over daily tasks and projects.

What does Power.ME do for me?

Power.ME allows you to organize your life. Adding tasks lets you make sure everything gets done; adding folders, projects, and filters gives you the tools to make sure everything gets done efficiently. You can make notes or upload documents to ensure that no good thought is forgotten and the documents you need are on hand when you need them. Once you have everything in order, you can collaborate on tasks and projects and take the guesswork out of who needs to do what and when: just send a task or project directly to the person who needs to complete it.

Once I assign a project or task, what happens to it?

When you assign something to another person, that person is notified in one of two ways. If they are a registered user of Power.ME, the item is sent directly to their Power.ME Inbox. If they are not yet a registered user, they will receive an email notifying them that they have been assigned an item on Power.ME and they will be directed to a point where they can receive it. Once the item has been received, you both can work together to make sure it gets done.

What kind of documents can I upload to Power.ME?

There are several different types of document files that can be uploaded to Power.ME:

  • Word Documents (.doc, .docx)
  • PDF files (.pdf)
  • Excel Spreadsheets (.xls, .xlsx)
  • PowerPoint Slides (.ppt, .pptx)
  • Picture files (.jpg, .jpeg)
  • Numbers (.numbers)
  • Pages (.pages)
  • Keynote (.knt, .key, .kth)

What is the maximum file size I can upload to Power.ME?

The maximum file size you can upload is 20 Mb.

What does the Sync button do?

The Sync button on the Main Toolbar sends any changes you have made up to the Web server. It will also download any changes you have made on another device if you are using different platforms (for example, the Web and an iPad). The Sync feature is only available to subscribers of Power.ME Sync, or during the free 30-day subscription.

What are projects and folders for?

Projects and folders allow you to organize all your tasks, documents, and notes into a focused system that takes over the work of keeping things straight so you can focus on the details and achieve your goals.

What are the differences between projects and folders?

We have made projects’ and folders’ functions almost identical. This gives you the flexibility to organize your information in whatever way is easiest and most logical for you.

What can be assigned to a project/folder?

Any task, document, project, or folder can be assigned to a project or folder: you have full control to do whatever you need to organize your life more efficiently.
