Really like the task comments and assigning to different ppl
Mario from Signaturit
Specialty: Software / Technology
Incredibly versatile, one-man-band type of collaboration software.
It ties communication tools (HD videoconference and chat) with task management (recurring tasks, subtasks, ...), project management (lightweight Gantt chart, workload view and time tracking), all native, in one package. It also features native Android and iOS native apps.
These work well for keeping in touch with the team and create/update tasks.
This is specially important for teams who are dispersed (different cities, different timezones, ...).
While you can easily spend hundreds of dollars on different softwares for different purposes, Redbooth ties it all together in one.
They've been through a lot of changes over these 3-4 years and they don't seem to have found their core yet.
The UI still looks something out of the first drafts and doesn't look polished or slick like other players in the collaboration space like Asana or Slack.
The Dashboard is somewhat useless and just mimics a prettier email inbox while having the same behavior. Their premise of replacing email is a bit doubtful.
Lots of potential, but doesn't seem to go anywhere.
Redbooth can be complex at times with the amount of features it boasts. It is both a good and bad thing.
Spend time in their Help Center, watch some videos and don't be shy of asking for guidance. It will be worth it.
Force your team to use it every day and you won't want to work any other way.
Danielle from LDJ Productions
The ability to stay on top of tasks, no matter how small, and keep all teams on the same page.
I do not have any negative comments at this time; it's been a big help overall!
I wish projects and the tasks within them could be duplicated, as many of our events are recurring from season to season.
Maggie from LDJ Productions
I love how you're accountable for your tasks with deadlines and others can add input/help when needed.
There isn't anything I dislike :) Except for possibly the fact that you can't yet duplicate projects
Test it out, and I guarentee you'll be happy with it. It helps with time management, to-do list oriented tasks and builds conversation with co-workers.
Ethan from LDJ Productions
Redbooth help keeps our larger teams moving forward; creating a central repository of information.
There are many task managers out there - and I surveyed about 20+ of them before settling with Redbooth.
Redbooth offers a robust feature set, while staying simple and easy on the eyes.
We found actual adoption and usability being a big stumbling block when we started to actual start to implement a company wide task tracker. We had tried Asana - but it's graphic design and complexity never allowed it to take hold. Redbooth is so quick to pick up that people actually like using it.
For a single feature - I like the "Task to Email".
I think the ability to assign a subtask with a date could be useful.
I would also like to be able to duplicate complete Projects.
Small issues really.
Don't go for the most feature rich; you need to have something easy to use. Consider yourself the most tech savvy person who will use the software.

I love Redbooth. It has completely transformed how my organization runs. We effectively use workspaces, tasks, and assignments to track all KPIs and current projects. The accountability and help the tool provides is great. I also love Redbooth Meetings for an easy video chat and screen share.
Ease of use and elegant design
I can't have my assistant schedule a Redbooth Meeting for me.
If you commit to the system, it'll work great. Doing it in part won't be effective.
Robyn from InnoVector tech
Overall Redbooth is easy to use and great for team communication. The only flaw I have found so far is their use of folders. They give the user the ability to save content in folders but do not backup these folders. The user must get a third party cloud backup. It is also not possible to download an entire folder.
neel from Independent Consultant
Free trial - easy to use - makes one more productive... what's not to love. This is the best product management or task management in existence.
Brandon from Pulse Of Prophets

Have been using Redbooth for about 3 years now, started with just myself and my freelance work, now it's for my small business managing about 4 people and client proofing as well as milestones and work to give out to our social media team and designers.
Easy to use, incredible desktop and phone app, it's constantly updated, great tutorials and webinars.
Wish timing integration was done a little better
Would HIGHLY recommend!

Love that Redbooth enables all of my virtual employees to stay connected. Love the advantage of being able to invite just the people necessary to different groups.
Love the versatility of being able to invite selected people to view particular topics
The invite process could be a little smoother rather than having to reply to an email
Love that it can be accessed on mobile devices or pc

The UI has changed a bunch over the last few months. It is now responsive and has icon placement pretty much where you'd expect to find things. The chat is helpful. Task templates make a great boilerplate for similar tasks, perhaps the checklist used to add a new user to your system. It is a bit expensive and the mobile app doesn't currently work well to remember who you are logged in as if using Google SSO.
Mobile app, alerts, responsive website.
Google SSO / Mobile App design and price
I did quite a bit of research on my own of different project management sites and apps, and Redbooth was the only option that had the scope of features I needed for a reasonable price. I use an Android mobile device and an Apple computer. My clients typically are on an iOS mobile device and PC computer. Redbooth features are simple and concise enough that I can quickly and efficiently navigate through, but with plenty of functionality. I am in an email-heavy industry and Redbooth will allow us to operate more efficiently with the internal messaging commenting/status features which will also reduce email volume.
Functionality and features for PC, Android and Mac/iOS platforms. Calendar sharing. Internal messaging and simplified workspaces.
Administrator settings are slightly tedious.
John from Weiden + Kennedy Advertising
Our company has had a PAINFUL experience with Microsoft Project and Excel. They were created for project managers. We need something for marketing and creative types. Redbooth was just the answer - it has easy task management, built in chat and video meetings. Our global team works exclusively in Redbooth and we are always aligned and connected. This is worth trying for sure.
Trevor from Ogilvy PR
We were previously using many products to communicate and work as a team. We were paying for Webex, box, our team in the US had Dropbox and also Hipchat.
We consolidated all of these products and started using Redbooth. It is cheaper, easier to use and the new desktop applications are great. Having something running all the time on a single monitor has dramatically reduced email and we stay in touch now all the time.
Kate from Unified Logistics
Redbooth has it all - a virtual workspace for my team, task management, chat and video conferencing. Before I was using a combination of to-do lists, spreadsheets and emails to manage my work but it wasn't very effective. The dashboard and tasks help me know what high priority things I need to get to first. I can also easily track what my team is working on, so nothing falls through the cracks.
My team uses the chat and video conferencing capabilities constantly. I can ping my co-workers for quick answers or hop on a video call with remote team members. It's all included in Redbooth, so it's a huge plus!
Nigel from Nura Design
Redbooth goes beyond project management and offers a true collaboration solution for our entire organization
Meagan from Lotus Growth
Before finding redbooth, I used a string together toolkit of other products to collaborate with my teams: email, trello, gchat, go to meeting, and none of them worked very well. I was constantly forgetting which tool contained which document or task- and version control in email is a nightmare.
So glad I found Redbooth. As a consultancy, I work with different teams on different projects. I'm able to set up custom projects for each client, assign tasks and track the progress.
Redbooth has helped make my teams more productive because everyone knows who's in charge of the next action item. I also work remotely a lot of the time, so being able to stay in touch with my teams on daily video calls with the conference call feature, or ask a quick question on chat is really helpful.
On top of that, it's a really slick UI, with an awesome mobile and desktop interface.
I tested about 25 different task trackers; and we decided on Redbooth just do to its general usability to track tasks across multiple projects by both internal and external staff.
We had tried Asana - but in the end; no one used it .. to cumbersome, ugly and more complicated then our staff needed or could handle.
Redbooth ws the 3rd little bears bed that just fit right :)
Ease of Use
Time tracking not linked into a more powerful engine
Could use a more robust calendar.
Lisa from Freelance
I started using Redbooth about six months ago and have already been amazed by the amount of time I've saved by being able to check Redbooth instead of sifting through hundreds of emails. It has made my projects much easier to manage and organize, and it's super convenient to be able to do everything (chat, tasks, video meetings, etc) all in one place.
¿ Easy and intuitive interface
¿ HD video
¿ Tasks: Ability to create, assign, reassign, set due date, change due date, etc.
None so far!
Moniba from Horse & Cart, Freelancer
Redbooth makes it easier for me to communicate with team members/clients and organize tasks for different projects. It comes with different features and integrations so I have the tools I need to work efficiently and collaborate easily. I personally love the group chat feature and the HD video meetings and screen sharing. I can also access Redbooth with my smartphone and computer which is a plus and it has a great user interface across devices. The simplicity makes my work flow more efficient. It's everything you need in one place!
Dan from Shop Ignite
Our team stopped using many separate point products (Webex, Outlook, MS Project) and started to use Redbooth last year.
Having all of our work, documents, and team communications in a SINGLE location has been great.
We travel a lot, and having team chat and HD meetings in Redbooth means we are always connected. The product has helped us stay on task, get more done and even given us a competitive advantage.
David from Coseom
We are working with Redbooth for several months now and I really like the way the app is structured and organized. I can see all activities of the team and have a clear overview of all actual tasks each one is working on. The Video Conference Tool is great and integrated, so no additional software is needed - create the meeting in your calendar and go! A big advantage is the mobile app, push notifications and chat help me to react quickly and solve issues in minutes - physical meetings got less -> like!
Redbooth meets all of my needs and does it with excellence. I am very impressed with the user interface, the reporting, and the time tracking. This is a serious program, for serious users, who need to get work done.
Brendan Tully from Horse & Cart
(*Note: This is the same review I wrote on iTunes - true then, true now.)
I have used more collaborative project, task and team management and communications apps that I care to recall. Redbooth is in a class all its own. It's simple, intuitive, engaging and even fun to use. From the desktop to mobile, we're all on it everyday and it makes us better at what we do. A MUST HAVE!
Lorin from Social Fever Marketing
Switching to Redbooth distilled my typical workflow into one simple interface. Video conferencing is more intuitive and more flexible than Skype, and having the smartphone and iPad apps makes transitioning from office --> home office --> being on the go completely seamless from the collaboration side. I never feel out of the loop and can stay in touch with the rest of the team wherever I am.
As far as ease of use - the interface gets an A+ for being intuitive. If you are a heavy Evernote user this interface will make sense to you.
- HD video conference with chat and screen share is the best of Skype & Join.me, all inside one system
- communicates with Google Calendar
-toggles between multiple organizations easily
- tagging feature - excellent within a large team
- HD video conferencing works with users and non-users via link sharing - huge bonus
- easy file sharing without email or Dropbox
- reporting feature for a bird's eye view of task management
- optional recording on HC video conferencing - this is great for creating training material, explaining complex projects that need review, or creating video content
- Looking forward to additional HD conference features but thus far this is the best collaboration tool I've used
