Booost your day

The Booost your day feature in Booost is one of the app's key features as it proactively helps the user to prioritise their workload, rather than just presenting them with a list of tasks to get through or events to attend.

The idea behind the feature came from students talking about how they were great at making lists of everything they needed to do, but would then sit down, scan through through the list and pick out the things that were easier or more fun and ignore the stuff that they didn't want to do

So to help, we developed the Booost your day feature to make it clear which tasks need working on first, rather than letting you choose...
