Thanks to MeisterTask for sponsoring BrettTerpstra.com this week! I’ve been using MeisterTask for team project management for quite a while now, and I’m excited about the new Agenda feature!

If you haven’t heard about or come across MeisterTask before, here’s a little intro: MeisterTask is a Kanban-based task manager that’s all about changing the way people work in the digital space. It enables you to turn all your todos into tasks and create customized workflows on sleek Kanban boards that you can use to visualize your work’s progress from start to finish. It’s intuitive and easy to use (plus it looks really great!). One of MeisterTask’s core selling points is its features built to help teams collaborate online — a huge topic at the moment, with everyone scrambling for software to help them work remotely. Teams can use MeisterTask to set up projects and organize and manage their work in a customizable environment that perfectly adapts to their needs. All they really need to get started is an internet connection. MeisterTask is also integrated with other great tools including Slack, Google Calendar, GitHub, Zapier, G Suite, Confluence, Bitbucket and more.

If you’ve worked with other task managers like Trello, Asana and Wrike before, then you’ll know that one of the biggest problems users face is maintaining an overview when working in multiple projects at the same time. It’s easy to drop the ball when you’re being pulled in a hundred different directions. That’s where Agenda comes in.

Agenda gives you the power to create the overview you’ve been craving. Agenda is accessible right from the MeisterTask dashboard. It looks a lot like a Kanban board, with sections that you can order, rename, and customize as you wish. But here’s the best part — you can “pin” tasks from any project to any section in your Agenda. That means all your tasks can now be housed in one centralized place, just for you. You can organize your Agenda sections in a way that best suits your particular work-style, but here are a couple of ideas. Organize your sections by:

  • Priority (Low, Medium, High)
  • Day of the workweek (know which tasks you’re going to work that day)
  • Due Date
  • By category (the type of work that needs to be done, blog post, bug fix)
  • By what still needs to be done

The Agenda customization options are endless. This is the feature you never knew how much you wanted until you got it. It’s available on the MeisterTask Pro plan for $8.25 per month. Sign up using the code BRETT15 to get 15% off your first year with the annual pricing plan! MeisterTask also offers a feature-packed free plan which doesn’t include Agenda, but is definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for a simple, nice looking task manager.
