Casual.PM is a cloud-based visual project management solution for small and medium-sized businesses. The software enables users to create project plans using visual project maps.

Casual.PM features a drag-and-drop interface where users can add and assign tasks to different people. Users can also add relationships to tasks, which helps to define the order of execution of a project. The system's dashboard provides an overall view of all projects, enabling users to see an overview of what needs to get done when.

The system also allows users to add sub-processes within each task, which can be defined with a workflow. When the project starts, every person gets the pre-defined task list in order of execution.

Casual.PM offers a native iOS mobile app and is compatible with Google Calendar.

Pros

some of the tutorial steps do not appear on screen and takes awhile to figure it out, tutorial might be from last version but we installed new version perhaps.

Great App for staying on task

Pros

Great way to stay on task. Lays everything out so it's easy to see what is top, medium and low priority. Easy to set up too which is great.

Cons

1. Cannot copy entire projects easily.
2. Color coding of projects would be nice so you can tell who the tasks belong to at a glance.

Casual is for Academic Research Teams, too!

Pros

Casual is perfect for academic research teams needing to coordinate complex projects with multiple streams of activity and deadlines, but without the extensive project management resources of a corporate team. The interface is clean and crisp, very easy to navigate, and effective. Having a tool that works for you rather than the other way around frees up the research team to do what it does best ;-)

Cons

I am looking forward to a few more features that I think would be helpful and are in the pipeline- for example, the ability to PDF the workflows captured in groups would be really helpful (currently I just copy and paste those into a top level project as a workaround, but the functionality would be nice) :-)

This tool is very helpful when you are working with multiple teams.

It helps in managing my offshore team.

Pros

The best thing I like is the layout for tasks. You can set a start date and end date and also assign an executor to a task.
It helps you to manage tasks between small teams.

You can also change the status once a step has been completed.

I use this tool for tasks management only and it has all the features which are required to manage the tasks.

It is very helpful when you are with offshore teams.

Cons

I am totally satisfied with the performance of the system. I liked it very much. No cons from my side.

This is the best tool to manage tasks between small teams.
I have never seen this kind of graphic layout for tasks management and that part makes it unique from other tools.

Cons

I use this tool for tasks management only and it has all the features I need to do that work. So I don't like anything least about this tool.

Used in projects that required many task to be perfomed by many ressources following an strict order

It helped us get organized and make sure we didn't forget a step of the process.

Pros

that we can plan in advance the sequence of tasks to be done and that all ressources receive email notifications when the tasks are completed

Cons

that we are not informed when the perso that is responsible to execute a task starts working on it, we are only notified when it's completed

Love the name "Casual PM" This is great software for Project tracking.

This software shows the tasks in a list view or a graphical view. I think this is a powerful tool to help different people stay on the same page.

Pros

I really like the way this software has the graphical view for task tracking. It is a "mindmap" view and very visual. This really helps in see where thing are. It also includes the "list view". It is a simple feature but packs power. I really like the flexibility of switch views. I also like the fact that this software has a mobile app.

Cons

This software does not have a module r portion for risk tracking or risk management. that would be helpful.

I very much prefer this tool over Trello and many other task tracking software

Pros

The ease of use and the simplicity in creating and managing tasks is incredible. Plus being able to visualize all tasks together and see with such clarity what the dependencies are and how far you've come really sold it for me.

Cons

The lack of an indefinite free tier I found a bit disappointing but understandable. Other software out there like Trello have a great free offering and they are trying to solve the same problems. In the end it was worth it for me to buy the software however.

One month in

Pros

The unique approach is amazing for a business like mine that completes very similar projects repeatedly for different clients. It ticks off a bunch of features that have been on my "wish list" for a team task manager for a long time. In fact, when I found Casual I was in the process of programming one just for our company because none that we have tried had all the features we wanted. But now we're going all in with Casual for managing project tasks across a team. It's super easy to use - much less of a learning curve than Slack, Trello or Asana.

Cons

I wish it had more integration options, such as IFTTT or Zapier (IFTTT would be better). It may not be the right choice for a business where every project is completely different.

The Power of visualization

Pros

Whatever you do, Casual.pm can visualize your projects,tasks,flows.. It is huge advantage when you manage multiple projects. Multiple projects can be easily massed without proper tool. Casual.pm is great for managing and organizing multiple project with your colleague. Also, Casual.app doesn't demand steep learning curve.

Cons

Need more formatting functions(bold or coloring box). Casual.pm respond me they will soon delivery formatting functions.

Great project management tool!

Pros

The way task dependencies are made visual makes it really easy to communicate with others on the project progress and keep the project flow going. Bottlenecks and potential threats to the project are easily spotted so they can be avoided or mitigated in time.
Also a great feature is to be able to use a previous project and clone it for a next project. This makes it easy to create generic project roadmaps and quickly build up a new similar project.
The app/website is still under active development so there is active follow-up on bugs and new features still coming. Kudos to the support team! Quick feedback every time.

Great tool to collaborate with my team of around 10 people. Can create templates that save a lot of time.

Easy to use and great for team work

Pros

I like how I can easily set dependencies between tasks and have my colleagues (or me) informed when a task is available for execution.
Visual aspect is also clear to know where we are.

Cons

Removing dependencies (arrows) in Chrome doesn't work very well. I have to work in Firefox to do so.
I don't use dead-lines, I would rather have a duration to set for each task.
Multi-selection works very bad, I would like to be able to draw a rectangle around tasks to select them all

Casual PM - Project Management At It's Most Finest

I've been looking for a product management solution that would integrate within my workflow for sometime. All of them lacked something or the other. Casual has everything and more. Also, because I need to check certain things when away from my computer, the iOS app makes Casual stand out from the crowd, as it allows an instant check to be done, without having to spend the time logging into a non-optimised web app. This has now transformed my working life. I'm much more productive than before, am able to send workflow's and deadlines to collaborators in an easily digestible flow diagram form, and now genuinely have a competitive advantage.

Pros

Ease of use, iOS App, ability to generate flow diagram PDF's and url's on the fly, regular updates.

Cons

Customer service could be more responsive to direct enquiries and requests. Even if the answer is no.

Unlike the competition, Casual.pm is visual-first. You can see your project at a glance, and make changes quickly and easily. I love that I can snapshot the project and share a link with clients.

Simple Project Management

We were looking for a simple way to track the workflows in our projects without the massive overhead many software solutions currently have. This application fits our need perfectly. While it does not have all the bells and whistles you may find in other apps, in this case, it is exactly what you may be looking for.

Pros

Simple interface
Easy to integrate with multiple users
Near zero learning curve
Inexpensive

Cons

Lacks detailed reporting (although some is available after speaking with support)

Great workflow organizer

I'm using casual for an aerospace design challenge with a team of 15 engineers. As a very visual person, I find the process of organizing tasks and being able to view the workflow in its entirety to be very useful and intuitive. I'm able to easily assign tasks to members and they can see deadlines, description of the task, etc. The only complaint I have is that it could be easier to create subtasks. I would expect to be able to create a task and drag tasks into it to create sub-tasks of the parent task. Instead, I need to create the subtasks first and then group them to make the parent task. It's not a huge hassle but I'd like to see the other method implemented if possible.

Pros

Easy to use
Visual workflow
Can push deadlines to google calendar
Upload files to project

Cons

A bit troublesome to make sub-tasks
