In this paper, we consider the problem of mobilizing Spot Tasks, a special category of workflows within web-based enterprise applications. Spot tasks are simple workflows that can be finished by interacting with only one page of the application. We present Taskr, a do-it-yourself mobilization solution that users, regardless of their skills, can rely on to mobilize their spot tasks in a robust fashion. Taskr uses remote computing with application refactoring to achieve code-less mobilization and allows for flexible mobile delivery wherein users can execute their spot tasks through Twitter, Email or a native mobile app. We implement a prototype of Taskr and show through user studies that it has the potential to reduce task burden significantly
