Agile Task Management

Sept. 7, 2018
MiesterLabs' task management software features customizable Kanban-style project boards that support agile workflows.

MeisterTask is an intuitive multi-platform task manager that enables users to invite team members to an unlimited number of projects, in which tasks are added, assigned, and tracked from creation to completion. Team members can collaborate in real-time via task commenting features, assigning, reassigning, and watching project progression, to stay in the loop with team activity and see projects through. With transparent project boards, project managers can create projects and assign tasks to the relevant people, whether internal team members or external clients.


All projects are Kanban-style, which is a workflow originally designed by Toyota to manage their factory processes back in the 1950s, as tasks are taken from open, to in progress, to done, meaning projects are designed with manufacturing teams in mind.


MeisterTask can be used as a stand-alone application or in conjunction with MindMeister, the collaborative online mind mapping solution. Together, the tools enable users to go directly from social brainstorming to collaborative task management, supporting the full creative workflow and making it easy to turn your team’s best ideas into action. MeisterTask is available in-browser and via apps for Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Android and Windows. With offline capability for iOS and Android, this can be done regardless of a stable internet connection.
