Overall Satisfaction with MeisterTask

MeisterTask is such a fantastic productivity tool. We currently have four people working for NoMo Diagnostics full-time, and then we contract some of our work out to software engineers and computer scientists. MeisterTask allows us to write up various tasks that we need to get done, assign them to the correct people, and follow them through to completion.
  • I really like how MeisterTask organizes things. It is a fantastic layout, making it super simple to track who is in charge of what items/deliverables and how complete each task is.
  • The privacy features on each project are great. MeisterTask lets you add people to certain parts of each project and not others. This is very helpful because a lot of our projects need to be kept under NDA, and we can avoid ever contractor having to sign one by just giving them access to the exact parts they need and not others.
  • MeisterTask is extremely user-friendly. Everyone that I have added to our project boards has been able to understand how to use the program right away. That is extremely important, since I do not want to have a learning curve for the project management software when onboarding someone for a project.
  • I really wish there was a tab to create a Gantt Chart on MeisterTask. This would be extremely helpful to track the progress of a project as a whole.
  • Some of the controls are not intuitive. For instance, you can select an individual person to see only their respective tasks, which is super helpful. But, to unselect that person and go back to the overview, you have to refresh the page and then hit the back button. This is super inconvenient to do every time.
  • One other feature I wish was included it a "percentage complete" tracker that showed what percentage is done with each task people are on.
  • 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.
I would rate MeisterTask as the second-best option here. Microsoft Project is easily the best project management software you can buy. It has every feature you could imagine and then some. Asana is inferior to both other programs, having the most limited functionality out of the three. If you are looking for an excellent, free software for project management, MeisterTask is the perfect thing for you.
MeisterTask is definitely the best free online project management program out there. It is fantastic at keeping things organized and making them readily available to all members of a project group. If you are looking for a software that can show statistics such as a Gantt chart, you may want to look for other products.
