Pros: For a free product, there is a remarkable level of polish & features embedded in the platform. Has features that are lacking in trello (such as sub-classifying tasks)

Cons: Not a whole lot to dislike, especially the free version. The only annoying part is you're constantly bombarded with pages prompting you to upgrade to a paid tier (almost every time you log in).

Pros: Simple Kanban Task treatment expandable to internal teams and external effort along with integrations to SharePoint and many other platforms all at a reasonable price.

Cons: Training others in Kanban could be made easier with MeisterTask specific training videos. Having narrower cards and automatic overlap/unfold would be niceties.

Pros: I really like the setup of this software. It seems that it is well thought out and it's fun to use. I like the log on screen background. It is also very functional and it is great for task tracking. It uses the "Kanban" set up so it's easy to see things up front. I like the feature that allows you to add checklist items on to your tasks. This helps break down each task. I also like the mobile app for this software.

Cons: This software does not have some of the features like time sheets and a risk management section to help tract risks and keep everyone up to speed with risks.

Overall: This is great software for task tracking and braking down each task.

Pros: The software is very easy to set up and is also straightforward enough to enable you to explain how it works to others verbally. (It also has a great help section) The section actions of Meistertask (ie Actions within columns that enable automation of some tasks) are a novel and very useful feature allowing you to automatically assign someone or move the task to another project just by moving the task into that column - huge time-saver. Another unique feature I love in Meistertask is the integration with their own mind-mapping app Meistermind, allowing you to easily convert mind-maps to task lists really useful. Altogether a great tool that is both useful and nice to work with.

Cons: There are two features that I wish Meistertask had are 1) A better android app, I like to see my task list on my homescreen (similar to Todoist, Nozbe and GQueues apps) not have to access through an icon button, just a personal preference but one I miss badly. 2) The ability to have a single task in multiple locations (to be fair I only know of Taskworld that offers this, unfortunately Taskworld is far more expensive and is a lot slower programme) but it is a super-useful feature.

Overall: Helping to streamline my business

Pros: The easy way you can track a series of projects. The way it perfectly works in a team, where more than one person interact in a single project. The possibility to have a checklist in each task (I love it!!).

Overall: I get to have all my tasks (and of my team) organized, and I am able to know in each one, what is done and what i still have to do.

Pros: I really like the Meitertask interface. Clean, beautiful and organized. One of the factors that made me choose Meistertask instead of Trello was the direct integration with Mindmeister. It is absolutely fantastic to delegate tasks to your team directly through the mind map.

Cons: Sometimes the interface has been buggy. For example, the background on the home screen often does not load on slow network connections, and makes it impossible to read project names, forcing the user to reload the page.

Overall: Helps me organize and delegate tasks quickly.

Pros: It integrates with existing tools like Slack. The look and feel is also very similar to other systems which are easy on the eyes. I especially like the more linear aspect of the tasks. It makes me feel like things are truly being accomplished.

Cons: I couldn't really get a true feel for how it would work in a team setting until I upgraded. Additionally the work flow is slightly limited especially when using dependancies. There is no way to allow other members to work ahead or concurrently if a "dependancy" is set on the previous task.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).
