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.

monday.com is the best time and task managing tool I've used while working in a design team. It can be customized extensively and adapted to a company's and team's needs. In my particular case, it has helped enormously to separate the tasks from the design team from the software development team, who have different needs.
Read full review Pros The learning curve is really short compared to other software that is related to this. It is very easy to manage several projects at the same time, thus saving time in the work process. Managing the elements of the list is very comfortable since its interface allows everything to work in an orderly manner based on what I want to put as important for me. It has versions that are adapted to any type of company or if you want to give a personal use because it also has an option based on what you want to do with MeisterTask.

Those using traditional project tools may find MeisterTask a little bit superficial and scattered. Often you may need additional tools to complete the inefficiencies of Kanban board (no analytics for team performance, lack of time planning, etc.). Reports and analytics are limited.

Seems to have corrected itself over time. So maybe there was an issue (bug) that was fixed. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We rely on monday.com to track clients. There is currently not another software out there that we would prefer to use for client management, so I do not see a reason why we wouldn't renew our subscription with monday.com.

As someone who has been using monday.com for a while, I would rate its overall usability as a 9 out of 10. The platform is well-designed with an intuitive interface, making it easy to navigate and use. The drag-and-drop functionality and customizable templates make it easy to create and modify boards according to our needs.The automation features are particularly impressive, allowing us to streamline our workflow and reduce manual effort. Setting up automations is straightforward, and they work seamlessly to keep us updated on task progress and deadlines.

There have only been 2 instances in the past year where monday.com was down.

Everything performs fairly well. Every now and then there are user errors where an employee will not click "ok" on a note they've created and simply exit out (I do wish that something was in place to prevent this, such as a pop "are you finished?")

Unfortunately, this is one of the most significant areas for improvement with Monday.com. Monday.com boasts 24/7 service, but in my experience, it does little to deliver. On several occasions, I have reached out to Monday with long delays and lagging response times. This seems to be the one area where other platforms have Monday.com beat. While this platform is my favorite, its lackluster customer service has tainted my experience and motivated me to look elsewhere for similar services.

To have someone walk you thru the features and capabilities of Monday.com is priceless. Someone also coming along later in the contract to see if you are maximizing the program to suit your company needs is beyond helpful. The staff that have provided this training are fun, creative and very patient.

We signed up for the accounts. Created the accounts. Ran the trial version and tested it live while we were running multiple projects and found that it was fitting our needs perfectly. When the trial ended and we were asked to purchase the full version, we did. We have found other ways to use it and it's a breeze.

Meistertask seems like it was made for work, and it doesn’t hide its features amid complicated menus. The Mobile experience is one of the best I have used in task management. It integrates with other tools more widely via Zapier and various built-in ecosystem connections within the Meisterlabs space. If you need to get started simplifying your digital life, this can help.

We used an excel spreadsheet to track our month end close process previously which created a lot of issues around only one person being able to be in the checklist at any given time. Additionally, we were unable to have excel notify us when a task we need to have completed was done, but Monday.com has completely changed that for us!

For it to work across multiple departments and sites, I would like to see improvements made with integrations and automation. For this question, I am acknowledging not only the addition of internal triggers/automation, but also an expansion on external ones.
Read full review Return on Investment MeisterTask saves me a lot of time in communicating about various tasks of a project. The activity chat feature lets me communicate with other members of my team without having to be in the same location as them, and increasing our productivity. It has caused me to use some additional time though, and create a Gantt chart myself instead of being able to use a built-in feature. MeisterTask is great for letting us organize and keep track of all aspects of a project and make sure each one gets done by its respective due date. Read full review It's hard to measure the amount of time this system saves but I know it is huge! Everything is accessible no matter where I am or what I am doing. And it is accessible to our managers so they can find the info themselves. The old systems we replaced had a physical material cost to use, which is 100% gone now. And the physical space that was required for the many project management boards we had was immense. The more we use it, the more things we find that we can add to it. Incredibly flexible and moldable. Read full review ScreenShots
