Good tool, but I honestly find I mostly could just make do with using collaberative Google Doc/Keep

Pros: Have the multiple columns that you can name and customize is really cool. Being able to create tons of separate projects and share with certain people is great. Being able to comment on specific to-dos is great. Being able to collaberate with people and share is great.

Cons: Getting notified about late items and such isn't super easy to figure out. I'm sure with more time I could figure it out, but I didn't find it worthwhile enough. It would also be cool if there could be a column designated as the "done" column, which items marked done would automatically be moved to but visible (and marked off). Overall it's a cool platform, it's just not worthwhile enough for me to spend money. I mostly ended up using it as a running record of actions done on various accounts, rather than actually a list of to-do and done items.

Overall: The main thing is having a collaberative to-do list with someone and being able to comment, mark as done.

Super simple, but powerful!

Pros: The best part about Meistertask is how dead simple it is, while still absolutely nailing what it needs to really get right. Meistertask makes task management dead simple for me, and keeps the detail out of the way unless I specifically need it.

Cons: The worst thing about Meistertask is that sometimes if my internet or wifi disconnects for a short period, it gives me a warning and I'm unsure if my changes will save locally or not until the connection is restored.

Meister Task has made me a better leader!

Pros: Ease of Use
Multi-Platform
Customizable

Cons: None

Overall: I switched from another popular "TO DO" program to Meister Task almost 2 years ago. The ease of use and multi platforms allows me to keep up on current items but more importantly follow up with the people who requested support. I have customized the App to represent my needs as well as those I am serving. It even let me put a personal picture as the backdrop ... sounds simple but makes it mine. Keep up the good work and thank you for always responding when I have a question.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make it your own ... customize it will meet your needs.

Pros: I love how it is web-based and ready for users of all experience levels

Cons: There is no offline access

Overall: We have utilized MeisterTask in our church for two years now. It has been an invaluable resource for the work we do as a church. It allows us to manage volunteers, staff and projects in one application!

Recommendations to other buyers: Great software and they are really receptive to suggestions for including new features!

Pros: Simplicity

Cons: Needing to remember to keep it open so I see my tasks. Having to open each task to add in the deadline (wish I could just add the deadline when I create the task).

Overall: I needed a way to create mine to do lists without writing them on paper (which gets lost or covered in coffee). I didn't need complex project management and I didn't need to share with a team -- I really just needed to make a usable list. This seems to mostly fit the bill. I need to remember to keep it open, or I lose track of my to-do list. And it can handle more of the project management features (like commenting, sharing, and tagging) but I don't need to use it. All told, this is a pretty good tool for the simple management.

Pros: Great interface

Cons: Sometimes connection errors

Overall: MeisterTask is a great app for tracking your to-dos and manage your team. You can track the time you spent on each tasks and it's a nice design. Good mobile app too.

Recommendations to other buyers: Reminders for time spent would be nice. I forgot to stop time tracking often

Pros: Keeps the team on track and is easy to adopt for even the non-tech staff.

Cons: Project date does not affect all of the task due dates, so for every new project, even those we've made template projects for, we have to hand input due dates for every task.

Overall: I tried this with my team and we're using it successfully with some extra effort. We are a growing church with several recurring projects and teams. We've found that Meister task is one of the first task programs that we'll used successfully, even late adapters. We find that duplicating a template we've made for a recurring project is easy, but we still have to hand-input all the due dates. IT would be easier if one project date would set all the due dates within a project. Never the less, we've been using the software (free version) for 4 months and have better and better success keeping team members on target with due dates and sharing information and files.

Recommendations to other buyers: I now use this software for all of my tasks. It really keeps me on track.

Comments: I've been a huge MindMeister fan for years, the only thing I was missing was a way to properly manage the tasks that arise out of my mind mapping sessions. The MeisterTask integration is exactly what I needed - now I can export all tasks from MindMeister into a project board and work them off one by one. Nothing gets overlooked anymore and I don't miss any deadlines.
I love that MeisterTask is just as simple as MindMeister (it took me about half an hour to have it pretty much figured out) and that it, too, has a Drive integration.
Since I've never shared any of my projects with others, I can't say anything about the team and collaboration features, but for freelancers and teachers it's definitely worth a try (especially if you're already a MindMeister user).
