Overall Satisfaction

  • Project management: Allows for precize tracking of tasks assignments, tasks progress, issues tracking, hours spent, comparing projected vs acrual, projects grouping and management
  • Timesheet: Allows for precize tracking of time spentfor each project, task, issue. Allows for great daily/weekly workload planning and tracking.
  • Requests: Allows for assigning and tracking requests - whether to you or made by you to someone else.
  • Timesheet: currently the task that you're done with does not dissapear right away from you list of tasks. And there is no indication that shows that a task has been completed already.
  • I experienced slow response time under IE. Had to switch to Chrome to get the @task responding promptly.
  • Logging in each morning is a little bit annoying; I wish I don't have to re-login every day but had my @task stay opened till I close it
  • Great project tracking and management tool! It allows a great flexibility and great visibility to the current projects status.
  • Great workload management and tracking tool! I have list of all tasks, requests, issues assigned to me - right in front of me, with deadlinet. So, daily planner with all necessary details - right in front of me!
  • Views: great flexibility in creating views, slicing and dicing, any way you need - for projects and tasks. Very helpful in multi-functional teams environment.
I'm not aware of any other tools that provide level (both, in terms of scope and in terms of depth) of projects/time management as @task does. It's web-based, so can be used literally everywhere. It's a multi-user, so any size team can utilize it. Training that we received when we moved to the new version was online training provided by @task team, was accessable for anyone who wished to join, with all our questions asnwered.
For a small-size teams, with fewer projects - it may be an overkill (I don't know what is the price of the @task tool, I suspect that price may not justify its utilization for a smaller teams with less cross-functional projects). The tool is great for project and time management, in combination. If any of these two areas are not why @task is used - then users may shoot for some other tool.
