MeisterTask helps to keep me on track for the large volume of to-do items related to various projects. I appreciate that I can readily access it from my phone, laptop or tablet.

Pros

MeisterTasks does assist me in managing my tasks across all my projects.

Cons

While the archive feature makes sense, it's too difficult to just delete a task or project.

MeisterTask has CHANGED MY LIFE from an efficiency and productivity perspective. I never imagined I would find a FREE task and project management software with as many features as MeisterTask has. I can upload notes, assign tasks to colleagues, develop checklists, along with MANY, MANY other features. I highly recommend MesiterTask for anyone who wants to take control of their life. What's even better is there is a desktop app for PC, an Apple app for all of my devices, and I can always access my needed materials for whatever I have going on. Very environmentally friendly (less printed materials) :-)

Pros

Free platform
Ease of use across devices

Cons

No re-occurring option from within the product. I cannot set up a task to re-occurr monthly directly in the product.

I use this for my team and we basically setup one project and I add everyone’s tasks and tag the person who is working on it. This gives me an idea of all the jobs and how many tasks each person is doing. Perfect for what I need it to do.

Pros

Visually the UI looks great and modern. You get a random quote everyday thats inspiring. When setting up tasks it’s just so easy to do it and have the ability to tag tasks.

Cons

The reporting is really bad. You can get stats on how many tasks got completed by a certain date by a certain tag. Definitely need this as a feature in the future.

Pros

I am working remotely for a foreign company and having something like a virtual task board helps in managing, assigning, and tracking task progress.

I like that it is visually stunning as it is customizable. It creates a relaxing work environment that helps me become more productive.

Also, we can create pre-defined checklists for recurring/repetitive tasks.

It has integrations too on software/applications we use which are really helpful like slack, bitbucket, two of which we frequently use.

Out of all the task management app I tried, I like this one the most because of aesthetics, usability, integrations, and customizations.

Cons

Meistertask's recent update rearranged my checklist items and I can't figure out how to reorder them. So I reverted back to th previous version.

Also, I use its Android app so I can still be updated but most times I need to logout and log back in again to get it to sync.

But other than these, I love this amazing tool.

Overall beautifully designed and well executed across multiple platforms.

Pros

MeisterTask was more visually appealing and more powerful to use than other competitive project planning projects. It's GUI and UX was nice and I enjoyed the customization you could use within the software. It's mobile kept the experience from web/desktop to iOS seamless.

Cons

MeisterTask was great free-version, they recently went through an update and pricing structure that made it less than ideal for me as I stopped using it, I may return back to the software but haven't had a need to management many project recently. I had no use for managing a team as I am sole proprietor and freelancer.

Totally the best out there with the most features. Better Than trello and Asana due to email integrations. For those of you on Evernote branch out as Evernote is so limited.

Pros

Many features for personal use it business use. Great for collaboration on small or large tasks. Great app as well. Good email integration. Great customer support.

Cons

There are no negatives with this as it has it all.

Communication on projects has improved as a result of being able to assign out whole projects or parts of the project to individuals

Pros

Allowed me to quickly build up task lists so that I can divide up my tasks into urgent / not urgent and also delegate these tasks to my team.

Cons

Nothing really i've struggled to find a better software out there that helps me get so much done within the working day.

Pros

MeisterTask is one of the best free collaboration and task management tool available on the web. One of the highlights of MeisterTask gives the maximum features for free. Just like other kanban board apps, MeisterTask starts out with boards and lists for our tasks.

Cons

Limited integration with other tools is the only con I see about MeisterTask. Also, the notification set up is not impressive at all. They should improve that.

At first we thought it was going to be an easy way to collaborate on projects however we quickly learned that projects weren't getting accomplished in Meister because it was just a bad interface in our eyes.

Pros

Don't really have a lot positive interaction with it. EXTREMELY clunky. Nearly impossible to collaborate in and move people through the stages intelligently. Which is why we migrated away from it in favor of another platform.

Cons

Interface, collaboration, adding notes, getting others to do their part so we could move it along (UX isn't too friendly"

Amazing at getting organised - use for myself personally, for my business, and also recomment it to clients as a fantastic project management tool

Pros

I love the intereface - it's really beautiful to use, very intuitive and I love how you can customise the backgrounds.

The features are also fantastic - I switched over from Trello as I loved the Mindmeister integration with Meistertask, and there is a lot of power in the features (especially in the pro versions upwards)

Cons

Only "con" for me is that some of the awesome features like automations are only available on the Pro version - but the pricing is very reasonable, and totally understand that model. Love it

By far the best "simple" PM solution I have used. Really good for small to mid-size teams looking for a simple solution without any bloat. Really great for tracking personal projects as well.

Cons

For managers, the reporting, aside from time tracking, is almost non-existent. This could really benefit from the addition of some timeline functionality.

Overview of where work was at in a project.

Pros

I love the dashboard feature that gives you an overview of everything assigned to you (a feature lacking in several similar Kaban board alternatives). The program is very easy to use and onboarding my team onto the software was simple and worked well.

Cons

MeisterTask gives you a free month of pro when you refer someone; however, when my month expired rather than downgrading me to basic they kept my subscription at Pro and had it "locked" till I paid for the pro account. I had to email support and ask them to give me back access to my account given I did not want, nor request to be upgraded to pro. This happened twice and at one point my entire team was locked out of our project. It is a great idea, easy to use and has a very aesthetically pleasing layout, but they are still working out a lot of kinks.

The shortcuts are also not as comprehensive as Trello and makes quickly assigning, labeling and moving lots of work down a pipeline difficult.

Really easy to jump right in and start using it. Almost zero training required to begin. It has a tight integration with Slack. We can post and update to MeisterTask directly in a Slack post. That saves a ton of time. Works well for a large organization. Email updates are slick.

Cons

There really isn't much to love. The customer service seems somewhat non-existent, but we've never had to reach out either.
