Thanks to MeisterTask for sponsoring BrettTerpstra.com this week!
Since its launch in 2015, MeisterTask has quickly grown a cult following among developers, designers and other creatives. The app is available for Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and as a web app. Created by MeisterLabs, the company behind the popular mind mapping tool MindMeister, MeisterTask is all about simplicity, usability and a beautiful design that makes task management not only efficient but even enjoyable.
Using MeisterTask, teams organize and manage tasks in a customizable environment that perfectly adapts to their needs. Project boards can be set up and modified to support software sprints, Kanban boards, funnels and many other agile workflows, making them suitable for any department and industry.
A personalized dashboard provides each team member with an overview of their open tasks, tracked time and notifications from other team members, bringing them up-to-date within seconds.
Using “Section Actions,” managers can easily automate recurring steps in their team’s workflow, ensuring team members work more consistently and get more done together. Among other things, Section Actions can be used to automatically move tasks to other projects, assign them to the right team member, or notify individual stakeholders about new tasks.
MeisterTask comes readily integrated with the apps and platforms teams already use and love, such as Slack, Zendesk, GitHub and more than 500 other tools.
MeisterTask offers a free plan with unlimited tasks, projects and collaborators, which includes up to 2 integrations. MeisterTask Pro is available for $7.50 per user/month (if paid annually) and offers unlimited integrations and Section Actions as well as customization options and access to the statistics and reports area, which provides managers with insight into their team’s productivity and tracked time.
