Ready Set Travel App assists with pre-departure planning

The Transition Center at the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) launched a new app in October for employees who are heading overseas. The app—which is designed to be used under normal travel and work conditions—generates a personalized to-do list and can integrate directly with a user’s cell phone calendar. Users can enter their expected date of departure and the app creates a checklist organized in increments of time—months, weeks and days before leaving for the next assignment. After the app generates tasks, the user can check them off as completed. In addition to organizing pre-departure planning, the app provides links to online resources and resilience tips to encourage and support individuals during their transition. FSI designed the new app to support orientation training and the Overseas Briefing Center’s resources for international relocations. The free app is available for download by visiting the iPhone or Android app stores.
