Comments: Have been using PM for about 4 months. It's greatly facilitated collaboration between myself and my staff. Any glitches or areas for improvement are easy to communicate to the programming team and are considered in subsequent software updates. I'm very happy with the organization that it has brought to my business. Thanks!

Pros: - the many different ways one is able to look at their pending tasks: by due date (overdue/due today/due this week), on iOS or Mac calendar, etc.

Cons: - visual design not overly appealing
- Gantt chart view should be accessible without having to upgrade to Business class.

Overall: After trying out many productivity and task apps and management systems out there, I have finally found the perfect solution. Priority Matrix allows one to divide project tasks by priority, which in my eyes is key to efficiency and efficacy. Gone are the days of being busy all day long without really moving the needle forward. Priority Matrix constantly reminds one (in a good way) to work on the most important and urgent tasks first. I love that I can look at my unfinished tasks in many different views: by quadrant, by due date (overdue/due today/due this week etc.), and also in my Mac and iOS calendars.

Pros: Web Based - Quadrant driven - Perfect for an Essentalist organization like the ICN.

Cons: Need to be mindful of syncing/

Overall: Priority Matrix has kept the main things the main things. As a Broadband Carrier our technical details levels are quite high. Now we can see each others project essentials and it has reduced the shear number of update meetings required.

Recommendations to other buyers: Easy to use. Has the depth when you need it and simple when you don't.

Pros: Incredibly varied number of features.

Cons: The UI for the iPhone is very poor. Displaying the 4 quadrants at the same time takes up valuable screen space that is better suited for perhaps only a quandary at best

Overall: Very pleased with using a system that is robust with the use of the Eisenhower Matrix. The syncing function needs to be simplified though.

Overall: The software has really helped me focus my day on what matters most. I had used the Eisenhower Matrix in paper form, but found it much less effective than having Priority Matrix on my computer and mobile devices.

Recommendations to other buyers: PM Team is very willing to work with you on fixing or customizing the software to your particular needs and work style.

I would recommend Priority Matrix without reservations.

Comments: As a crisis management consultant and entrepreneur, I have a multitude of projects and tasks on the go at any one time. Plus my personal life. I am also an early adopter of tools (particularly apps) that can drive personal excellence. Priority Matrix is just such a product. Not perfect, but superior. Beyond its tried and true "Eisenhower Matrix", it forces you to think differently about your to-do list, a very good thing. I also like the more visual aspect of it as compared to traditional "lists". A component of our work includes strategic planning; Priority Matrix adds real value to the related the SWOT analysis. Customer support is responsive if you allow for the habit of folks on the west coast lying-in while the rest of us are well into our day. This app is not perfect, but a strongly recommend it as a superior tool. It has added value to my self-management.

Pros: Flexibility, functionality

Cons: It's not the prettiest, but that doesn't bother me. It does what I need it to do!

Overall: I've used these kind of matrices before and find them the best way to organise and prioritise everything in my life. But alas I'd been using the more traditional method of paper and pen and drawing my own ones! I'd been looking for an electronic version for ages and came across Priority Matrix. It is perfect! I needed to have a bit of a play around to get it set up in a way that suits me, and now I've done this I wouldn't be without it. I use it all the time and find it really flexible. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Recommendations to other buyers: I played around with it to find the set up that works best for me - definitely worth doing that as it has lots of different functionality.

Pros: Unique perspective, organize task in 4 different categories

Cons: In mobile app sometimes you need to log again

Overall: I tried so much apps to organize my tasks, to-do lists, and after try several softwares, PM is the best.
Syncs between PC-Iphone-Ipad
For visual persons like me is great to divide activities in 4 categories. For me is like:
1. To do today - or 2 days max Where I focus in my daily.
2. Tasks I delegate to my assistant
3. Things to do consider for this week
4. Long term & not extreme important stuff, and is cool to don´t forget it

This app is the base to organize my time, activities, work, personal tasks.
And makes me be more effective, and focus in what is really important in a very intuitive way.

In the iOS app sometimes don´t synk very quickly or log out ..... but not all times.
Would be cool to polish that part.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great to organize whole personal and work activities

Comments: Priority Matrix can do SO much! More than I can probably ever use! If you manage multiple projects over a course of time with long lists of tasks in each project with varying deadlines, etc.? Then this is for YOU. I needed a system that would help me do that, and do it well. And PM has definitely fit the bill. It does take time and effort to learn how to use PM and its features, but if you want to be organized and on top of your game -- any system worth its weight would take your effort! Plus, the customer support is probably the best that I have ever received -- EVER. Prompt, efficient, capable describes every interaction that I've had thus far with PM folks. I liked using PM so much like I decided to add a member of my team to my subscription, and now we together use it to manage both our individual and team projects. One of the great parts about that is now I have a place to jot notes and different ideas that come up throughout the day ... instead of sending 3 emails or text messages ... thoughts can be collated in one place.

Overall: I have been using Priority Matrix for a couple of years. The free coaching last year was very helpful for using the product more efficiently. After reading David Allen's Getting Things Done, I have even more appreciation for the utility of this solution.

Recommendations to other buyers: Users should take advantage of the coaching sessions. Valuable. Senior

Pros: The app is cheap and the programme adds to the overall business value

Cons: There aren't any

Overall: Its easy to get lost in lists and too easy to become submerged in daily demands that feel important but don't move the big stuff. Priority Matrix allows you to become more in control and if used daily it means you can focus on the big stuff first. The Windows programme supports the app seamlessly so it all works together. its one of my main apps and wouldn't wish to lose it

Recommendations to other buyers: Use it and it adds value and control to your life

Pros: All the functional capability in one location.

Cons: Some people that I've trained on how to use find the functions difficult to navigate.

Overall: I use PM in my personal and professional life. It's a great tool to minimize meetings, track tasks in real time, and communicate with a team in one space. It's biggest value is to be able to have one location to communicate (in real time and from anywhere) with a team, track progress of tasks, and even share documents. I like being able to import emails right from Outlook and to upload documents to projects.
One of the biggest values of PM is time-saving! A lot of time doesn't have to spent arranging meetings to make sure everyone is on the same page-that can all be accomplished from one tool!
Another key feature is all the options for reporting out on the projects. The calendars and gant charts make reporting the progress of projects much easier and much more complete than trying to compile info from many team members.

Recommendations to other buyers: I love it!

Pros: The hot keys to enter items in the particular quadrant are easy to reach and fast.

Cons: It's yet another piece of software with a monthly per user charge. I understand why this is necessary, but until a person is really using the software effectively, the costs are hard to justify/recoup.

Overall: I'm mostly a pen/paper person. As such, I have dozens and dozens of yellow legal pads with important notes on the first 3 pages. And I have 8 rather large stacks of these all over my desk, grouped by functional area: Marketing, Operations, Sales, Engineering, etc. So last week I started working with Priority Matrix and began the process of digitizing my notes. Just the reduction in size of paper piles has helped me feel less overwhelmed. The software is easy to use, intuitive and it's fast to re-organize and re-structure the tasks in different quadrants and lists. I am currently only using it as a single seat, but I can tie in keep people on the team with their own seat in the future and use the software to help manage the delegated tasks and the necessary follow up. I have it installed on three computers and my phone. It all syncs seamlessly so I can work on things wherever I am. So far, very pleased.

Recommendations to other buyers: I'm using the single seat version until I convince myself it is worth the investment to add on other team members.

Comments: Priority Matrix (PM) has become an indispensable tool in driving transparency and alignment on what my team needs to focus on. PM facilitates a discussion among team members and those business partners for whom we have to deliver for. Aligning on high value high impact work and what work can wait makes prioritization an activity everyone looks forward to. Transparency with business partners and the ability to manage expectations are other benefits of using PM. PM has brought order, structure, and focus to a complex business environment and improved work life balance across the team.

From the support side, Hai and the customer support are outstanding. Responses are timely and personalized.

Comments: I will quickly admit that without having used Priority Matrix over the past few years, I¿d probably be lost.

As an entrepreneur, I run a few small businesses, each which requires a great deal of task management. Getting a handle on all of those tasks be incredibly overwhelming at times. A few years ago, someone had suggested that I start breaking down tasks via separate Eisenhower Decision Matrices for individual projects, which makes it easier to stay on task and get things done more quickly and effectively. This process encourages one to tackle the more challenging things that need to be done ASAP, and putting off the easier projects that don¿t need to be accomplished immediately.

But what if there was a digital version of the Eisenhower Decision Matrix system? Enter Priority Matrix. It syncs across my iPhone, iPad, and all of my Macs, so I can stay on track wherever I am. In fact, it even offers a great deal of flexibility beyond this. I even use it for my 2-column ¿Pros/Cons¿ lists and 1-column shopping lists.

Unlike some other ¿to-do¿ programs out there, one of the best features included is the ability to flexibly tag/label each task with various icons. Often, I have tasks that I have to put ¿on-hold¿ as I¿m waiting for a reply, etc. ¿ and I need to walk away from them temporarily and focus on other tasks. Hats off to Appfluence to including this vital feature.

The only 5-star rating exception here involves the pricing. In an earlier version of the program, I had to purchase separate versions of the application for each device (iPhone/iPad/Mac). That irked me a bit, but I overlooked it as the software was so great. Unfortunately, the new subscription model hurts single users who don't have the funds for a subscription or even need team-based functionality. Clearly Appfluence's new pricing strategy is an attempt to bring in more revenue via multiple licenses and subscriptions, but I strongly hope that they reconsider. Any app¿s success depends upon individual home users, who can convince their bosses at work to buy it for their department. If the program¿s team-sharing functionality is truly valuable, then businesses will have no problem paying for it.

Again, if you want to stay on track with an Eisenhower Decision Matrix system, Priority Matrix will save the day. Although ensuring that adhering to your priorities and doing the work is up to you, Priority Matrix will help you get the job done and stay on track. Great job, Appfluence!

Comments: We've used Priority Matrix at work to delegate tasks throughout our team, and it's awesome!

There's a view for each of our projects, and it's great for capturing team feedback to go back to an look over. It also allows us to be efficient. For instance, we can communicate on a particular project item through the conversation option on priority matrix. Other team members on the project can then read and follow along on our thread. There is then another tab to take notes where we can put key points and link documents. All the info and communications we need in one place.

Pros: Wrote it already

Cons: Takes some effort to learn how to use it - not a con item just a notice - it will not work unless you learn how to make it work.

Overall: I have been a user for years now. The customer support is tops, live from the USA, the actual owner gets into support if needed. They keep improving the software. The biggest problem is making it a habit to use it daily. The lack of results is because one just does not use it like they should. If you use it daily, actually during the day your bottom line if in business will be positivity affected. You actually get morning updates sent to you on what you have left to do, items that you have entered. I do wish it had history for accounts that you are tracking on your To Do lists - past records, maybe it does and I just have not noticed? It is a honest firm, in the USA, from people that you can understand and who understand what you are going through.

Recommendations to other buyers: Learn it, spend time learning how to use it, you must invest that time - you need to use it daily not weekly like my bad habit

Pros: The multiple levels of organization, nested and in one place

Cons: I'd like more Windows(tm) actions like double clicking on a project template title should select instead of having to go to a button to initiate the action.

Overall: Priority Matrix is the first "list" app that I was ever able to use routinely. PM provides ability to not only easily collect tasks but also to prioritize and categorize them in a single dashboard. Filtering projects and tasks allows me to drill down and create a master task list of those tasks most important to me at the moment.

Recommendations to other buyers: No

Pros: Easy to use, can drag actions around, ability to take a large project and break into individual tasks.

Cons: Would love the ability to track dependancies more easily - I am a GANT chart user and Cody has showed me how to link actions, but it would be great to see them as dependancies in the charting feature.

Overall: Priority matrix has been great for organizing all of the workstreams in my business. Cody, who has helped me in the implementation, was responsible for walking me through everything I needed to know and how I could better use the software - he was great! He spent hours working with me as I got comfortable with using the functionality and is directly responsible for getting me to use it every day. Thanks, Cody!! Next up, getting the rest of my team onboard!

Pros: Priority Matrix is such an easy program to use, and there are so many options that allow me to make it work the way I need to for my task. The fact that you can choose between the different matrices, again makes it work the way I need depending on the project. Being able to set deadlines, reminders, track notes, add people to a project, track changes, and see reports, so you get a global view of how you are managing your projects provides the information you that gives you insight into your project management skills and improve. While the program provides structure to projects, at the same time enables you to customize how you set it up for according to what you need.

Cons: I would like to see more space for the notes and details of the project. All the information is there but it feels cramped. This is not a con, I would love to see the options for really bright colors when you are choosing your color schemes.

Overall: I work alone, manage multiple projects, and more than one business. Priority Matrix allows me to see how much I am doing and identify what is realistic. I have a tendency of wanting to do more than is possible. Priority Matrix is easy and allows me to outline each project I have and the steps to completion. It is easy to track progress, add notes, and delegate when I need someone else involved. Depending on the project, I pick the best matrix for the task. It helps clarify and focus what needs to get done and by when, and it is very user-friendly. Further, because it creates a visual for what I am doing, I have a much better sense of what is too much because I can see the scope of each project and this allows me to maintain a better balance in my life. I have eliminated projects with simultaneous due dates, and I am much clearer about what is possible, and this ultimately makes me more productive. Project matrix allows me to sort out and break down tasks so that I can identify what I can do depending on the time I have available and the deadlines. Product Matrix is an application that works for me and keeps me focused, on task, and increases my productivity.

Recommendations to other buyers: It would be really neat if there were a way that when you are working on the tasks within a quadrant, the details from the right could open in a linked box. The notes are so important and I find having them on the right in a narrow column makes me search for those details more. The details you can add there do not pop out at you.

Pros: Easy to use

Overall: Using this program has given me the ability to stay on top of my work, be more effective by knowing when things are coming due, and has even helped with balance knowing I can track their progress. I love having the app on my phone, computer and even tablet, having the ability to keep everything up-to-date because data is synchronized with a touch of a button.

Recommendations to other buyers: Update the icons. More options. Also offer a bigger calendar view.

Comments: I run two companies, receive an average of 200 emails a day and travel all over the country. The need to organize and be more efficient is huge for me. Priority Matrix gives me that ability. From the PM add on in Outlook that I can instantly turn emails into trackable to do items, to timeline and prioritization of tasks, to the ability to add members and delegate tasks to them, Priority Matrix is a key program I now use every day to stary organized and prioritize my day.

Pros: Quick access to jobs/tasks, especially with the "Ctrl+F"/search function.

Cons: Can't export/pull data for manipulation in a spreadsheet.

Overall: The program has been an easy way to track multiple job/task progress throughout the day/week/month. At a quick glance it is helpful to have all users on the same page at the same time*(assuming accurate sync(s) between users). We have experienced sync issues which include: users not seeing what another user is seeing, job/task(s) disappearing, changes made and older versions of job/task reverting. With as many job/task as we create and complete each day, it is very tough to notice these sync issues. From a lab manager/coordinator stand point, I watch nearly all jobs/tasks and I cannot memorize or recall ALL the changes, etc to a single job out of the dozens being processed. That aside, we would love to have more useful analytics available; currently our President does not see the usefulness of current analytics available with the Business or upgraded service ($$$/effectiveness ratio). No export into spreadsheet form offers no relief from having to use this software itself for those purposes. I understand not having that option may steer potential clients of your software toward NOT getting the upgraded service(s), but I believe it would actually increase the number of potential clients wanting to use it for purposes similar to ours. Less programming on your team's part, while still giving your clients the option to use your software catered to their own needs in a spreadsheet form. Additional features/options in "query"/search/filter methods would be very helpful as well. Short of processing in a spreadsheet form, this would allow someone to "manually" pull user data from our company. There is no "undo" feature in your software, as well as, other common commands/features offered in many of the other software/programs users are familiar with. Having an "Archive Shell" would be amazing, as we have many jobs/tasks completed and needing to be thinned out of the "View - All Items" filter. The "archive shell" could act as an easy way for users to save jobs/tasks completed in a non-editing mode of the program, to be viewed if needed. Currently, we have one quadrant serving as our "Archive" for each given project. We are pleased with our customer support and appreciate the help this software offers to our organization/communication/operations. I don't know how much we pay for these services, so I can't speak of the "Value for Money" rating. I do really feel that this software is close to being a 4+star in each category with the right advancements.

Recommendations to other buyers: I'm not sure what your current user market/industry numbers are, but being able to branch out into the industries that would find this type of software useful should be considered. From a math/science field perspective, I don't think it necessarily fits the needs quite yet. Not to say it can't be used, but the process specifics of learning to get around current limitations may be more work than these fields may want to spend on figuring it out. With only beginner use in database(s) and moderate use in spreadsheets, the operations and data analytics offer more than your current software. Keep working at it, I see potential for our needs :) Thank you.

Pros: 4 box / areas layout, good iOS apps.

Cons: Looks a bit dated, iOS apps occasionally log you out.

Overall: I've tried lots of different task managers over the years but the only one I still use every day is Priority Matrix. It is different to others in that each project is divided into four areas, you can put pretty much whatever you like in any of these areas. I run an ecommerce business and find that this layout works really well for managing our day to day tasks.

The software looks a bit dated in some respects but it works really well and is pretty easy to customise to our exact needs.

There seem to be a lot of features which we don't really use as the basic functionality works well for my needs.

Syncing between a PC, iPad and iPhone also works well 95% of the time, occasionally there is the odd sync issue but this is not a major problem really.

The iOS apps work well, they sometimes log you out but logging back in is fairly painless, it would be nice if they never logged you out though. Actually using the iOS apps to manage your tasks is really easy, as is creating and editing new and existing projects.

Pricewise it's not cheap, but not really that expensive either, there are some great task managers that are free, however, I have no issue paying as it fits my needs to perfectly.

Recommendations to other buyers: I find the four areas of focus offer a genuine difference over the majority of other task management software and for me it works out really well.

Pros: Most are hard to figure out. There are a lot of things I love about PM. Perhaps what makes it especially functional for me is that it works on many platforms. I need to move between android and mac systems everyday so now I really only consider software which can accommodate that. I love the browser extensions, the customization options, and Google calendar integration.

Cons: The UI is a bit challenging. For such a full featured piece of software, I completely understand how hard it can be to make the interface completely obvious but the icons used are, at least for me, not very intuitive. The sidebar menu for customizing tasks is also problematic.

Overall: I am a PhD student, in a STEM field, who also happens to have some learning and other cognitive issues. A fantastic disability resource counselor introduced me to the priority matrix model but for it to really work for me I needed at the least an online, secure, cross-platform, searchable, calendar linked application. I thought I was going to have to build something myself, which I don't really have the skills or time to do. Thank goodness for PM. It has been magic and I recommend it to everyone! The only things which subtract from the experience: the UI could use some design help, the android app is a little unstable, and I would love to see some cheat sheets of steps and tips I could keep handy because, as a function of my particular disability, I have memory problems especially with multi-step interface tasks.

Recommendations to other buyers: I really think this is software that could be marketed more to students in higher education and people with cognitive issues. I think this is a piece of software which helps establish a positive workflow, rather that just being another tool or widget that helps us get by. I do some research on digital pedagogy and I plan on getting to demonstrate the idea of tools that grow with students. I think PM is in that category. I wish the android app was more stable. That could be my phone and not the app. I would love to see some tip sheets. Videos are ok but I need reference sheets. Maybe there are some and I haven't looked so if so I apologize! Finally, and totally a pipe dream, integration with DevonThink, Atlas.ti, R-Studio, Office and Journey :-).

Pros: The product is easy to use and it integrates well with other productivity tools (calendar, email). It's syncing capabilities are awesome, allowing me to work on my iPhone when on the move, my iPad when I'm chilling at home, on my MacBook at my home office, and Windows 7 station at work.

Cons: There is a need to make the tool consistent across all the platforms

Overall: Great product. The concept is great! It allows me to establish my priorities in the most effective way using any task management techniques pioneered by customer support. The tool is flexible to allow you to customize it, yet simple enough so you don't spend time inputting data so you can spend your time on the most important thing: execution. There is room for improvement to make the experience more consistent across the platforms, but it is in my opinion the best task management tool outthere.

Finally- a tool that does what I need and then some.

Comments: I learned about the PM methodology in a career enhancement course on effective problem solving at the company I work for. I stumbled across Priority Matrix while searching for productivity apps that would allow me to practice this methodology digitally rather than on white boards or paper-and what a find it was! It inspired me to use the matrix in ways I didn't think of before, and it has A LOT of features. My favorites are being able to assign tasks and set deadlines to team mates and add notes to those tasks. I'm also loving the email integration which has helped with continued use of the tool. I'm still finding new features everyday. The only thing that would be nice to have is an improved Gantt chart view, but I understand that's not quite the focus of the app. Highly recommend!

Pros: easy to use yet efficient.
ideas are no longer forgotten and progress of delegated tasks can easily be tracked

Cons: as much as I like the software and appreciate the value of keeping our team coordinated, I still feel that this is a relatively simple software when compared to other saas that we use. Therefore, the subscription cost feels very high.

Overall: Priority matrix is easy to use and has all the functionality we need. Customer service is also responsive and happy to provide training for groups of new users. I am a bit disappointed that the packages for multiple licences have been discontinued.

Recommendations to other buyers: Best when used across all platforms

Very fast and responsive customer service.

Overall: My wife and I used priority matrix when we moved out of state. It helped us keep track of everything that we needed to do. Just to give an example here are few of the things that was on our todo list: shipping cars, setting up meetings with sublets, figuring out what to give away, getting a new apartment, changing the address to all the billing, etc. It helped us to stay on the same page and keep our sanity.

Comments: I use Priority Matrix on my work computer (PC), home computer (Mac OS) and Iphone and Ipad. It is a quick way to keep track of your tasks using the Eisenhower method, ranking your tasks by importance and urgency.

But it is widely customizable as well, as if the standard format isn't helpful enough, you can customized to your own particualr need

Pros: It is definitely a simple piece of software. The premise is easy to grasp and it IS easy to use.

Cons: The simplicity is also a con. It feels like it should be more somehow. I also find it to be visually unappealing

Overall: I tried this app (1st version) out quite a while ago and just felt like it wasn't very polished. I stopped using it. I just recently picked up the latest version (v2) to give it another go and so far I have a very similar feeling about the software. It doesn't feel like a 'stand-out' to me

Recommendations to other buyers: If you want something basic and a small learning curve, this could be the right fit for you.
