Pros: DropTask is versatile: you can use it as a simple task list, as a collaborative system, even as an agile tool... Most of the time, I find what I need just by looking where it seems to make sense - and there it is. The interface is beautiful and well thought through. My company uses Jira to manage workflows. It's great, but heavyweight. I could imagine small companies or teams using DropTask.

Cons: I don't know what happens to the files I attach to a task. Are they ever deleted? Are they kept somewhere? I am reluctant to attach files because I don't see DropTask as a safe storage place. I wish there was a way to attach files through DropTask to Google Drive, OneDrive, DropBox, on another dedicated service.

Overall: Because DropTask is web-based, I use it both at home for personal tasks, and at the office to manage my own work. My company uses Outlook 2010, but I don't enjoy the task list there. My function is business analyst. When I write user stories, I organize them in the Canvas view in DropTask. This is for my eyes only; no colleague is invited since this is not an office tool.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

I just wanted to make you aware that if you upload a file to DropTask, the file is stored securely in Amazon's S3 cloud storage service. The only people who have access to the file are the people who have access to the task that the file is attached to. Once the file is deleted from the task or the task is deleted, the file will be permanently deleted from Amazon's S3 cloud storage service.

If there's anything else that you're unsure on, please feel free to drop us a message at support@droptask.com, where out customer support team will be happy to answer any questions that you may have. :-)

Many thanks,
Rowanne

Pros: The thing I like most is the way everything is laid out visually. I can create categories and categories-within-categories and drag tasks around. It's not like a checklist app where you have to retype something in a different checklist, or your only organization method is columns of cards. It mimics being able to write things out in different categories in my sketchbook, except it's better, because instead of crossing something out and rewriting it in a new list, I can just grab it and move it.

Cons: There are some tasks that I actually do like to have checklist-style, where all steps are instantly visible. It would kind of mess with the circular format for tasks, but I wish you could turn on an option to show a task's checklist from the canvas. I also wish you could choose a category that would be the default that DropTask would zoom in to when you start.

Overall: Overall, I really love DropTask. I use it to manage the epic backlog of personal projects that I have. I have many more ideas of things I'd like to do than time to do them. My DropTask canvas is a giant map of categories, everything from sewing projects to woodworking projects to coding projects to appointments I need to schedule to chores I need to do. It works so much better for me than card or ticket-based project management like I use at work, or just mere checklists for organizing all of those thoughts and plans.

Pros: Drop Task after watching some excellent easy to understand tutorials is not only easy to use but works better than many other expensive projects management systems costing many times more with a lengthy learning curve.

Drop Task is great for getting you organised as an individual, both personal and business but incredible in involving all those who play a part in the overall project.

Cons: Don't dive in without going through the easy to follow tutorials as they will allow you to set up from the outset the best fit for your planned outcome.

Personally I use Drop Task with iMindmap software and it's an unbelievable combination, but that's personal choice.

Overall: Once in a lifetime, you come across a piece of software, that once you start using, you wonder how you managed without it, and Drop Task is it!

Daily email reminders/to do's delivered to your email keep you on track and other people involved in the project are prompted to fulfil and meet their input, ensuring the project is always on course.

Pros: The visual task representation is unique and helpful. For a visual person it really helps to keep a handle on everything.

Cons: Missing functionality cripples this software and makes it very difficult to fit into your workflow. For example, they finally added the ability to add sub-tasks, but you can't put separate due dates on them. There is no "Canvas View" in the Android app to show the circles that are the raison d'Γͺtre for DropTask. Finally, the company OpenGenius is downright crooked! They make you sign up for a year to even try the full business version, but then bury the fact that it is non-refundable for any reason down in section 14.8 of their terms & conditions.

Overall: The visual representation of tasks was great.

Pros: DropTask has been a great tool to keep tasks within complex projects organized and moving forward. It integrates with Smartsheet and Google, so ties into other apps that I'm already using.

Cons: I think DropTask could do with more video supports. They have a nice written support section, but video tutorials would be more helpful.

Overall: DropTask has genuinely saved me time, and it's not an app I'd ever want to go without.

Pros: There's so many features to like - it is visual and can be made to look just how I want, and I love the new planner which helps me nail down my priorities.

Cons: Adding a document to a task is a bit clunky, I'd rather go to the linked file in its native app or on my computer than bring it into DropTask. I would also like the task sidebar to have more space, as the boxes for writing updates here are quite small and you have to scroll a long way down. Perhaps an update would offer the opportunity to open up the task sidebar into a full screen view?

Overall: It gives me a birds eye view of all of the things I need to pay attention to, and helps me focus in on them when I need to. I can collaborate and see where tasks are, and get things done.

Pros: I like the flexibility because you can use it Kanban style, priorities style or the visual bubbles make it clear which actions fit to which project. You can also maintain several projects at the same time.

I especially like the new planner view which I use on a daily basis to identify what I want to achieve TODAY.

Cons: Sometimes adding start and finish dates can be a bit awkward.

Overall: my overall experience using DropTask is very positive and I like the fact that you can integrate it with a range of calendar apps and Evernote. The developers are excellent at working proactively with clients and listen to users views continually. My queries have always been responded to very quickly.

Pros: Love the ability to move tasks around a canvas, I find the concept of this absolutely brilliant and this feature alone would make me convert to Droptask completely and never look at another task management tool again but.....

Cons: The circles... I'm sorry Droptask but as much as they are great to look at, they are a nightmare to work with. You simply cannot fit enough words on to make a task recognisable. I signed up for 3 years because I really wanted to use Droptask but I have had to stop using as my team said they spent far too much time clicking on every task to find out what needed doing If you just added the option to have rectangles instead of circles I genuinely think I would send you cake.

Overall: Had to stop using as the circles prevented tasks from being described usefully, which is a shame as the program is superb

Hi Tracie,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. If you're not already aware, you're able to switch to views such as Workflow, Planner or Urgency Lists where your tasks will be displayed as rectangle tasks. We're always looking for ways to improve the Canvas and circles in DropTask, so I will pass your feedback on to the rest of the team.

Thanks again for the review.

Pros: The different views help you to visualize your tasks in creative ways. I like the "Workflow" view best with the Kanban style. And the new "MyPlanner" view is perfectly done. Also the details you can add to a task are completely thought through. It provides everything from notes, to lists, to reminders, to due dates, and more. And assigning tasks to team members is done right. I know about any updates and changes immediately as well as assigning tasks is easy.

Cons: The only thing I don't like about DropTask is how you close a task after putting in the details like putting in a note, etc.

Overall: I have so many projects. I feel I have the details of each project under control which is a good feeling.

Cons: Very happy with the product. Sometimes lose myself when scrolling in canvas layout.

Overall: Accountability is a massive issue for all businesses. DropTask has been an easy and cheap solution to roll out across many different businesses and user types. It has improved our completion rate of tasks and greatly assisted in team buy-in and engagement.

Pros: I really like the ability to choose the way in which information can be presented, and the new layout with rectangular task shapes.

Cons: Cost of a yearly business subscription if you are not using it as part of a team. It would be nice if category headings in the workflow view were not automatically sorted alphabetically and you could choose what was at the top of each list.

Overall: I use droptask to track jobs in both work and home, and use the canvas view for original brainstorming

Pros: Ease of use, range of views, well thought out stuff in the tasks like check lists, reminders and due dates, priority and importance. Task management is all about weighting what needs to be done so that the list you need to get on with now can be manageable and this is the first software I've found that suits my needs. Of course the catch the eye bit is the canvas view but even without that excellent feature this would be the best task management software around.

Cons: There are still some issues to iron out but I can see from the blogs that Drop Task is listening to its users and improving all the time. I've talked through my concerns with the Customer Service Manager and I believe they will actually do something based on my issues. These are that the list news take up too much screen space, you can't edit or perform actions on multiple tasks, navigating between the views take a few too many clicks and assigning the tasks to categories could be a bit smoother. These are niggles but for me not fundamental problems.

Pros: The visual aspect of droptask is useful for me, I can see at a glance how tasks relate to each other. The new planner view has increased my usage because I can work out what I need to work on and I can only put dates where they are really necessary.

Cons: I generate a lot of tasks from imindmap, this can cause an issue because I have to process the notifications one at a time and what's worse the dialogue disappears after every one so the notification has to be opened again.

I like the optional features of reminders and keeoign track of interactions on tasks (phoen calls back and forwards etc)

Overall: A work as a sole practioner with regular interactions with clients and the system suits my needs very well. The system has proved very stable and the introduction of the My Planner has made it more productive for me.

Pros: Ease of use, colourful and functional. I like the way it integrated with Mindmap and the way i can generate a .CSV report and share it for my reviews. The colloboration feature is also great, though my team and i started using it very recently.

I also like the colourfulness of the software. Unfortunately, i am unable to use all the feautres because of security restrictions in my office. eg: I cannot upload files or emails.

Cons: I would like to see a Monthly goal view and a yearly goals view. We always begin the year with broad directions and then pick topics to work on every month. Droptask does not have this view - where i can just go and see my goals.

Overall: Fun, effective in task assignment and review with my teams. They update progress on their own - so it saves me the time of having to go on chat to ask them for updates. It empowers them too, because they too plan their tasks to the next level and are in control.

Pros: This software is highly visual, simple and intuitive and makes planning projects and tasks very easy, whether as an individual or as a team.

The my planner feature has alos allowed me to quickly set down all of the tasks/project I need to get done (both professionally and personally) and then schedule them in an effective and efficient manner.



This has greatly helped me with my time management and allowed me to focus on those projects and tasks that are most important to accomplish.

Cons: A couple of things could be improved:

1. it would be great to be able to assign either a start date and end date to the overall project and not just to the tasks within a project

2. in the planning and scheduling it would be good to incorporate the amount of duration of the projects/tasks if you needed to rather than setting an end date for each task.

3. it would be great to be able to see the critical path of the overall project along with the schedule of the project

Overall: I am solving many different problems (both professional and personal) with DropTask.

In business it is allowing us to quickly visualize the importance/urgency/efforts around new projects/tasks to make better decisions about how best to accomplish them.

Pros: I like that I can collaborate with my managers easily to keep tabs on progress for simple, short term tasks that don't require a true project plan.

Cons: On one canvas I'd like to add multiple people but limit exactly what they can and can't see.

Overall: My team adapted really quickly to using DropTask. I have 3 managers below me who each have teams of 5 - 10 below them. This has been an easy way for us to quickly communicate on tasks without having to interrupt eachother or have additional meetings to discuss current tasks we are all working on. It feels like we are more organized and getting done with our tasks faster. There is nothing better than clicking congratulate for a completed task and confetti flys !! love that!

Pros: I really like that it is in colored circles and that there are tools within the software to denote different priorities, etc. with a glance. I also appreciate the new My Planner feature. Lastly, I like the coordination between DropTask and iMindMap.

Cons: At first, the price. However, I was able to take advantage of a buy 'x' years and get 'y' years free. That made it appealing to me as an individual. Functionally, I have no issues with the software. My main complaint is that I cannot sell others on the magic that is DropTask.

Overall: I have used it to plan my personal workload. I have many monthly, annual, etc. tasks that sometimes get forgotten until the OMG that ensues with the reminder emails! DropTask not only helped me sort those things, having to categorize them helped me remember better overall. It served as both a reminder/self-program manager and as a tool to assist with recall.

Cons: It's not the software, it is more about how do I get people at work to use this tool. If it could integrate with JIRA for example I could make this an easier sell.

Overall: Mostly personal stuff and demonstrations at the moment. I have used it to generate lesson plans but am looking to use it to set up my own business now as well.

Pros: I've been searching for the "nearly-perfect" project/task management system for years. After evaluating DropTask for less than 24 hours, I'm amazed at the very extensive functionality and ease-of-use with the software. With multiple views and ways to see and organization information, DropTask takes time management to the next level. You can easily create and manage tasks on the fly.

Cons: Honestly. There isn't much feedback. The developers did an amazing job with this SaaS.

Pros: I like the visual display (canvas) and the urgency lists. This software does help me stay organized and allows me to keep my team updated on my progress.

Cons: It is cumbersome and takes a lot of time to use effectively. Sometimes, I think my time is better spent just doing the work instead of adding to DropTask, then doing the work.

Overall: Overall, this is a good product that has been helpful to my company. I do recommend it for small and medium sized businesses that need to quickly communicate progress reports with team mates. It is generally easy to learn and use.

Pros: Love the visual aspect of Droptask the freedom they give you in moving your tasks and categories around but even though they have made some major upgrades, they still need a couple of tweaks

Cons: Sometimes the circles actually prevent you seeing enough words to know what the task is. There is still no way in which to see ALL TASKS. The way in which Droptask is designed it also needs the ability to have tasks in multiple locations that way you could at least have a master task list and then keep a check on everything going on. Don't get me wrong I actually love this software but with a couple of tweaks it could be awesome

Overall: Completion of tasks

Pros: Other task management tools are linear and difficult to manipulate. I have spent countless nights reorganising my priorities into folders. Nothing has the drag and drop functionality of droptask. As soon as I receive an email, I either deal with it or send it to Droptask and schedule it under categories. I link any docs or attachments or resources to deal with it. I don't try to do everything at once. This has a great impact on an empty inbox. I can then look at the canvas view and see an overview of my priorities!

Cons: Nothing! The app has transformed my work flow.

Comments: I compared several task management apps before deciding to use DropTask earlier this year, and I must say, I've never looked back! I use it to work with my team of 20 in the office and it's truly improved our efficiency throughout the business. The beautiful design of the app makes it a joy to open every day, but I can't over emphasise how it's more than just a pretty face! As well as being able to delegate tasks to my team and monitor their progress, I use it for team communication and file sharing too. It's like having everything all in one place. Not to mention a wide range of integrations that gives me the flexibility to work in a way that best suits me. If you're on the fence then I really recommend giving it go. There's a free version available or DropTask PRO which gives you access to a huge range of extra features.
