MeisterTask: supercharged team productivity
Thanks to MeisterTask for sponsoring BrettTerpstra.com this week!
MeisterTask combines simple, intuitive task management with powerful integrations and task automations. Best of all, the tool is real eye-candy, which makes working with it actually enjoyable. First launched in 2015, the tool has already grown a cult following among developers, designers and other creatives, and is quickly turning into one of the main competitors of established tools such as Trello, Asana and Wunderlist.
MeisterTask is a web-based app and offers native apps for Windows, Android, Mac, and iOS. The sleek, gorgeous design of its iPhone and iPad apps has earned it multiple features in the App Store, where it was also named one of the Best Apps of 2015.
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, Harvest, and more than 500 other tools.
MeisterTask offers a free plan with unlimited tasks, projects and collaborators, and 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, project folders, and access to the statistics and reports area, which provides managers with insight into their team’s productivity and tracked time.
