Power.ME Toolbar

The Power.ME Toolbar is the black bar running along the right edge of your Power.ME window. It is available from almost all the pages within the app and allows you to quickly add tasks and other items, access help with Power.ME, change your settings, search your Power.ME content, and return to the home page view. The Power.ME Toolbar always appears on the right edge of the screen.

Home Menu

The Home Menu appears in the left-hand panel of the Power.ME window in most pages within the app. It allows you to easily navigate into your essential Power.ME functions and lists from almost all the pages within the app. When you first use Power.ME, the options will appear in the following order: Documents, Inbox, Tasks, Task Filter, Projects, Team Room, Due Date, Priority, Completed, and Trash. (To edit this order, hover over this button in the lower right corner of the Home Menu. Then click Change Order. To shuffle projects, click the button and drag the item where you want it to go. When you’re finished, click Done in the lower left corner of the Home Menu. If you ever want to reset to the default order, hover over and click Reset Order.)

Documents

Your Documents List will show all of your documents (be they Power.ME notes or files uploaded from other programs). Documents are organized alphabetically and divided according to the project or folder in which they are stored. (See the Media Files portion of the user guide for more information.)

Inbox

When other users assign you tasks, projects, or folders, they appear in your Inbox. Tasks that you create yourself, but don’t organize into a project or folder, will also show up in your Inbox. From the Inbox you can edit items and organize them into your projects and folders so you can find them quickly and easily in the other lists. (See the Inbox, Team Room, & Trash portion of the user guide for more information.)

Tasks

Your Task List displays all your uncompleted tasks (if you change the default settings, it will also display completed tasks). Tasks are organized alphabetically and divided according to the project or folder they’re stored in. (See the Tasks portion of the user guide for more information.)

Projects

Your Projects List displays all your projects and folders, which are organized alphabetically. To view the content within a project or folder, tap on its cell. If instead you want to view the project or folder’s details (due date, start date, assignments, etc.), tap on the project/folder icon. (See the Projects portion of the user guide for more information.)

Task Filters

Your Filter List displays all your filters organized alphabetically. From the Filters List you can tap on a specific filter and view all the tasks to which that filter is attached. (See the Filters portion of the user guide for more information.)

Team Room

Your Team Room displays all the content others have shared with you and you have shared with others using Power.ME Sync & Share. Content is divided into items that have been assigned to you and items you have assigned to others. The items you have shared are further divided according to who you shared them with. (See the Inbox, Team Room, & Trash portion of the user guide for more information.)

Due Date

The Due Date List displays all tasks and projects that have assigned due dates. Items are organized according to the due date, with closer due dates appearing first. Overdue items’ due dates appear in red. (Both the Tasks and Projects portions of the user guide have more information on setting due dates.)

Priority

Your Priority List displays all the tasks that have a set priority (low, medium, high, or urgent) with the higher priority items appearing higher on the list. The cells of priority items will also be different colors so you can find them easily in your normal Task List. You can edit the priority of a task by editing the Task Details. (See the Tasks portion of the user guide for more information.)

Completed

Your Completed List displays all your completed tasks and projects.

Trash

Your Trash displays all the items you have deleted. From the Trash you can restore or destroy trashed items or you can empty the trash to permanently destroy all the trashed items. (See the Inbox, Team Room, & Trash portion of the user guide for more information.)

      Power.ME

      Hello JJ,
      That is a highly requested feature that we are working on adding in a future release of Power.ME. Other services offer the functionality with little to no security behind it. Flow and Orchestra let you email tasks to your account, however, that can be spoofed easily with one line of code. I know, I’ve tested their security and was able to add a task to someone else’s Flow and Orchestra account with one line of code. We have researched the best possible implementation and it will be part of a future release.
