Great productivity tool with a nice daily workflow

I've tried nearly every productivity/task management tool out there, including (but not limited to) Trello, Todoist, ClickUp, Nirvana, Any.do, Asana, Wrike, and Quire. While many of these are solid tools, they didn't have what I'd call "the sticky factor". Sunsama has a workflow that works very well for me with a morning routine that helps me to plan my day and gives me vision focused on the day, but sightlines into the week as well. It actively helps me to maximize efficiency without overloading my day. The integration with Google Calendar is seamless and, together, I can manage my day with less stress and don't have to worry that things are getting left by the wayside.

Pros

Beyond the individual features, the daily workflow is really what sets Sunsama apart from other productivity tools (and I've tried most of them out there). The tool is built around setting up your day in the morning and closing out your day in the evening, and it works very well (at least for me).

Cons

While their integrations work well, I would love a browser extension that would let me add a page as a task (or an email from within my email platform, but they have an integration that pulls emails into Sunsama to accomplish that).

Reasons for switching to Sunsama

Each tool had certain features that I really liked, but ultimately, Sunsama provided a workflow that meshes with my brain and how I work.

Finally, a tool that helped me manage my task backlog and better prioritize urgent & important tasks

Great. So good, that I'm actually considering paying the $20/month fee for it after my free trial.

Pros

Sunsama is the best solution that I’ve tried so far in terms of time management, to-do’s, calendar, note-taking, etc. It’s helped me manage my task backlog and better prioritize urgent and important tasks. Very easy to use and a great on-boarding & integration setup experience. I'm still using it consistently after 2 weeks, so that's saying something!

Cons

I wish there was a better email integration that detected follow-ups and tasks. -- Even if it's similar to the gmail follow-up feature. My day can easily get derailed by my inbox and new tasks that come up from it.

Reasons for choosing Sunsama

ClickUp looks like another Asana or Trello. I liked how Sunsama focuses on prioritization.

Reasons for switching to Sunsama

Cloze and Evernote didn't help me prioritize enough. Sunsama is a great time management tool.

Response from Sunsama

Hi Erin! Thank you for the review. Glad you love the prioritization aspect. We're focused on helping people work sustainably instead of making them do as much as possible - that's a recipe for burnout. Glad to have you as a user :)

This software saves me hours each week

Sunsama has changed the way I work, I now have full control over my schedule and use time-blocking to get more work done.

Pros

Sunsama allows me to integrate all of my emails, calendars and to-do lists across multiple apps that I use.

Cons

There are a lot of pop-ups randomly when first setting up the software.

Solid, with some key areas for improvement

The strength of Sunsama's task management platform outweighs the struggles we've had with their collaborative work environment. I'd definitely recommend for those looking for a great way to manage and assign tasks both individually and across a team.

Pros

Sunsama makes it incredibly easy to manage your tasks. Prior to adopting Sunsama, I was relying on many, many, MANY handwritten to-do lists that quickly became out of date and confusing as new tasks were added and old tasks were updated with new information. With Sunsama, everything is in one place and you can constantly add new info and edit the scope of the tasks. To be honest, I don't know how -- and if -- I can go back to managing tasks without Sunsama.

Cons

Sunsama needs to improve their real-time collaborative environments. Our team uses Sunsama to manage meetings--specifically our twice-weekly scrum meetings that typically have long agendas. When Sunsama is at its peak performance, it's great -- it allows you to collaborative add and edit agenda items and assign actions items. That said, Sunsama isn't always at its best in this regard. The meeting page reloads regularly; sometimes content is lost; other times collaborators can't see newly added information or can't add info themselves. It's certainly gotten better -- and our struggles have become less frequent -- but there's still room for improvement.

Response from Sunsama

Hi William, Thank you for your review and feedback for Sunsama! As you noted, we're working on making it more robust and will continue to do so! The issues should be less frequent moving forward. Again, I really appreciate the solid review and am glad to have you and your team on Sunsama!

Great Task Management Software

Overall I love Sunsama! It is a great tool that has saved me from forgetting important tasks I need to complete. I use it both for my work and my schooling. I definitely recommend this product to those who want an easy to use task management software.

Pros

What I like most about Sunsama is its ease of use. It is incredibly easy to open Sunsama and list all the things you know need to be done. From there it's easy to drag and drop tasks from one day to another to efficiently plan out your work week.

Cons

Sunsama is great at creating a list of actionable daily tasks. Where it lacks is its ability to plan projects on a larger scale. It's difficult to put together the broad brush strokes for a project within Sunsama. This has led our company to integrate with Trello to plan more long-term tasks and phases.

Reasons for choosing Sunsama

We chose Sunsama because it is most helpful in creating actionable tasks for our team. It is where the rubber meets the road. Those other products lack in managing day-to-day tasks in an efficient way.
