Best Free Team Organization Tool
With their recent add of a calendar view, this app is by far the best tool available for managing projects for teams, business and personal. You can have different groups as “Networks” so you can keep you project organization separate for different parts of your life and work.
You can start and assign new tasks in a really convenient shorthand, or even via email. Tasks have follewers, assignees, priority settings, due date and time, notifications, subtasks, uploading files, chat, and much more. You can also record keyboard shortcuts as well as plenty of other features I’m forgetting at the moment.
There are only two things that would make this better than most paid task/project management solutions:
1.) Task/Project Duplication or Templates.
You cannot duplicate a previous task, or copy a group of tasks as a default setting. This may not be important to most people/orginazations, but you may consider it a “missing” feature if your are an agency that has set tasks for each new project. You can set tasks to repeat and many different variations though.
2.) No Gantt charts.
A Gantt chart is common in many highend task management solutions. Similar to a pipeline, it displays a barchart of all the various levels of a task. This is a robust feature and many teams or individuals do fine without it.
There are premium options for branding, Microsoft Outlook, 4/7 support, and some other additional features.
As a task manager it's nice, but without being able to create task templates like in Redbooth or Basecamp, it's kind of useless for groups of people larger than maybe 3 or 4. Most agencies have a set list of tasks that need to be completed for every type of project they work on. Having to manually type in every task is extremely tedious and makes this app useless. Even just the simple addition of being able to duplicate a project would be helpful.
