Impressive project management app

I really love it. Can't wait to see what new features the developers are working on next

PROS

The simple and intuitive UI in addition to the amount of great features, Stacks is hands down one of the best offline task managers out there. I previously used Trello but since I found Stacks I could not go back.

CONS

It would be nice to also have a companion app along side a Cloud option.

User experience with Stacks 2.

Stacks is the main tool I now use to plan and track various projects (both in the company and personally), allowing me to use the same tool to capture information from the brainstorming start, through to the project tracking and management.

PROS

Stacks has many features comparable to other products which use the Kanban metaphor to organize information. However, the key feature for this user is that the database is self-hosted (can be either on a PC/Mac or cloud), which means one can have the information in a secure setting, with appropriate backups.

CONS

The integration with other apps, and availability of access via smartphones, is still something under development.

Reason for choosing Stacks

All alternative products were assessed from two perspectives - ability to support a Kanban approach to task tracking, and the ability to self-host.

Reasons for switching to Stacks

Originally, the primary reason was the insecurity of access to data that was stored externally on the vendor's servers. Due to some log-in issues, I lost access to all the planning and tracking data, which revealed the vulnerability of my process to such a disruption.

Great Privacy oriented software for local development in kanban

With stacks.rocks I was finally able to work comfortably on my private business ventures and personal projects while keeping my goals All organized from a top down-birds eye point of view. I highly recommend this software to Everyone from all ages! it will definitely help you stay organized and evaluate your life goals and achievements!

PROS

Considering there are No LOCAL Private, easy to run productivity software that compares to Trello, stacks.rocks is definitely The Only contender . It's literally Free! I support the development of this great software as it offers soo much value for what is worth! This is the best software in terms of free or the premium version is the best bang for buck ( it has a ton of features for project management )

CONS

The software is still under development and there are always updates! Perhaps that's a good thing ! however limiting the updates on a biweekly basis or monthly would be much more suitable.

Reason for choosing Stacks

It's EASY and SIMPLE to work with plus the features it offers is unbelievable.

Reasons for switching to Stacks

There are too many kanban and productivity software options available in the market which I spent months evaluating! From open source to paid but most are just limited, terrible and not recommended: Wekan was a Hastle to setup, Taiga is too vanilla and plain, Trello is limited to powerups, Monday and Clickup over complicate the workflow, Restyboard premium features are expensive, Airtable is ugly, Asana is overkill, and the list just goes on and on... just give this software a try and you will thank me later. open source software alternative stacks.rocks !

"Great help for my college learning productivity"

As a student, Stacks is now the main help for my productivity. It definitely helped with managing my assignments and projects in school. I could also see myself using it for my creative projects in the future. From day one the devs have also been very helpful and responsive. As this app is still in constant development, they take into account requests and have been releasing great updates. I look forward to the growth of this app.

PROS

The features that are crucial for my choosing an app are offline functionality, reasonable pricing and nice UI. All of which I found in Stacks. I was just looking for a simple kanban app that fit the above checklist and Stacks gave that and more. More included other ways to view all tasks. My most used views are list, table and calendar which reminded me of Notion's. The dashboard also gives the numbers on how many things I'm supposed to do, have done or are overdue. As a student with a ton of requirements, all this has been helpful for me.

CONS

It would be nice to have Stacks as a mobile app

Reasons for switching to Stacks

No offline functionality Cluttered with features I didn't need and became distracting
