Introduction: Time Management has been in focus for Management professionals and students for a while now – so much so that a number of organizations conduct Time Management workshops for their employees. As a student of Management you may have never thought of using a time management application before, but things are about to change drastically. An App has been created and it’s as simple as setting an alarm to your clock. The purpose is basically the same – it aims to keep you aware of all the things that you have to do. These time management apps help students to better organize their college routines, remind them of their exams, dissertations and manage to do multiple assignments at the same time, thus enhancing multi-tasking ability among them. Some of the time management apps available are as follows. 1) Evernote Evernote is one of the most popular time management apps for students.

This productive app helps a student to note how much time a student spends on their favourite websites. Rescue Time tells us how a student spends their time on computer since if we know the spending time then only we can track wastage of time. Rescue Time runs in the background and tracks your online activity. Rescue Time run on background to track online activity that a student is performing. When we review our activity, including the two hours we spend watching music videos, we can rate the activity from “very distracting” to “very productive”. One can then set goals and track ones progress. 3) Google Calendar We use apps like Google, Gmail, Google Classroom but Google Calendar is a terrific planning app. It is a difficult job to remember every task for a university student.
