1. Full-Screen and Keyboard Access

REXdesktop.com offers registered users web browser based access to their ToDoMatrix and IdeaMatrix datasets.

Additions, edits, deletions, and reorganizations are synchronized wirelessly with the person's BlackBerry.

A person's drawer and folder structure is offered on the left-hand side and features the familiar expand and collapse functionality found on the BlackBerry version of the applications.  The right 2/3's of the screen is used to view data inside the folder or drawer.

2. Several Views are Provided

Data can be viewed in a Summary or Index Card layout, which offers additional detail.

Certain data elements, such as priority and status are color coded.  A small relative placeholder number is also displayed, helping a person keep their bearings while scrolling through longer folders.

This is the index card layout from ToDoMatrix.

3. Float-Over with Mouse for Details

Certain data elements, such as the detailed alert date or the delegate name and date in the summary two-line view, remain hidden.

Floating your mouse over the icon reveals the detail data, eliminating the need to zoom into a particular item to simply view the data element's data.

4. Edit Screens Match BlackBerry Functionality

REXdesktop strives to match as much of the core functionality of applications such as ToDoMatrix and IdeaMatrix on the full-screen.

To the right is a screen-shot of the detailed "edit" task screen.

5. Pop-Overs for Increased Productivity

REXdesktop offers quick select pop-overs while you are editing or adding new data records.

Below are two examples.  An additional calendar pop-over is also used but not shown here.

6. Sorting Matches BlackBerry Capabilities

The same sorting capabilities have been provided on REXdesktop that are available on the BlackBerry-resident applications.

 

Even drag drop of notes, folders within a drawer, and drawers within the cabinet are provided by using a select-first, then click on target space methodology. As expected, changes on REXdesktop synchronize wirelessly to the BlackBerry application.

7. Access to All REXwireless Applications from One Logon

Tabs allow a user to tab back and forth between their different REXwireless application databases, such as ToDoMatrix and IdeaMatrix.

 

In this example, the user has tabbed over to an IdeaMatrix view. The location in their ToDoMatrix is preserved, allowing ease of working back-and-forth between applications..

8. Flawless Wireless Synchronization

Three processes work in concert to synchronize your BlackBerry with REXdesktop.

 

First, changes made on the BlackBerry application are encrypted and sent within a few minutes once the device is idle. Second, a once-every-90-minutes heartbeat checks in with the servers to see if any changes have been made on the server end. Third, REXdesktop uses email to notify the BlackBerry application that work is waiting after a log-off.

 

Every sync is bi-directional, and with three layers of sync triggers, the server and BlackBerry stay in lockstep throughout the day.

9. Printing Matrix Data with the Adobe Reader-Based Print Feature

TeamworkMatrix allows your team to focus on the job at hand by offering task views by date.

 

REXdesktop enables simplified printing of items in a particular folder by leveraging the free-to-download Adobe Reader application (www.adobe.com/reader). Both summary and detailed formats are offered.

 

Below is a screen capture of an Abobe PDF formatted report. An added benefit is that reports can be saved to disk or e-mail to others, in addition to being printed.

10. Support for Multiple Simultaneous REXdesktop Sessions

REXdesktop allows a person, at their option, to give access to their assistant. The system supports multiple logons at the same time, and data changes are synchronized between both REXdesktop sessions and the BlackBerry.

 

In the example, imagine that the BlackBerry owner is on a trip to San Francisco, working on REXdesktop at the hotel before a meeting. Simultaneously, their assistant can be adding new items back at the home office in London. By the time she arrives for her meeting at the Moscone Convention Center, her BlackBerry will reflect all the changes on her BlackBerry, and on her assistant's REXdesktop session.
