What do Ritter Sport, Allianz, and EXPERTE.com all have in common? We use MeisterTask to digitize workflows and manage projects. In this review, we'll share our comprehensive findings about the German task management software.

Below, we'll let you know what MeisterTask is capable of, how it differs from other software, and which workflows it's more or less suitable for.

What Is MeisterTask?

MeisterTask* is a cloud-based task management platform launched in 2014 by the Munich-based MeisterLabs GmbH. The developer made a name for itself in 2009 with the release of its mind-mapping tool, MindMeister.

In 2018, the team released MasterNote, a Wiki tool for project documentation.

Below, we'll focus strictly on MeisterTask.

Task Management vs. Project Management

You won't find many mentions of "project management" on MeisterTask's homepage. Instead, what the software does is referred to as "task management".

So, what's the difference? Project management deals with tasks within a project and has the end goal of seeing their timely release and the project's completion.

Task management encompasses other aspects besides project-based schedules that extend beyond projects.

MeisterTask views itself primarily as task management software, even when these aren't attached to a particular project. Needless to say, there is plenty of overlap between the two, and MeisterTask is suitable for either.

  • User-friendly interface
    MeisterTask's stylish and easy-to-understand user interface is great for beginners and newcomers.

  • Good for Kanban projects
    The German task management software is ideal for managing Kanban-based projects, offering plenty of flexibility thanks to the ability to add subtasks and indicate dependencies.

  • Easy automations

    The variety of different automation options helps simplify routine tasks and increase efficiency. Since automations are grouped into fixed categories, they're clear for less technically-minded users.

  • Limited integration options

    The number of integrations with other programs and software is relatively small compared to the other software we evaluated.

  • Lacking collaboration features
    Users can comment on projects or assign them to others, but MeisterTask doesn't offer real-time collaboration or editing features.

  • Relatively expensive

    Even in the most affordable paid subscription, the price per user is fairly high, especially considering how few features are included. Other project management software is significantly more affordable.

1.

Configuration & Usage

To get started, you'll need to create a Meister account and answer a few questions about your background, business, and team.

You'll automatically start a 13-day trial period, after which your (free) account will be downgraded to the software's free version unless you decide to purchase a premium plan.

Before you can get started, you'll need to answer a few questions about your business and how you intend to use MeisterTask.

Immediately after registration, a brief tutorial launches which walks you through the setup process for your first project. Then, you'll be taken to MeisterTask's dashboard, where you'll manage all of your tasks and projects.

The MeisterTask Dashboard: Your Project Hub

Any MeisterTask feature can be easily reached from the dashboard with just a few clicks. In the menu to the left, you'll see several different icons, which represent your projects, tasks, and reports.

Widgets are located in the upper right: Use these to search through tasks, review the most important assignments, consult your checklist, or read notifications.

The look and feel of the MeisterTask dashboard ticks all of our boxes: It's polished and elegant, intuitive to use, and the ability to adjust the background image, as well as buttons and colors, gives it a personal touch.

MeisterTask's dashboard is your project hub.

Of course, this ease of use does come at a cost: You'll quickly memorize all of the features and settings since there aren't too many of them. At its core, MeisterTask is little more than a collection of Kanban Boards and some extras.

Pure Kanban: Projects and Tasks in MeisterTask

You'll spend most of your time in MeisterTask on the Projects page. Each project is a kind of Kanban board that's divided into multiple, vertical columns, which you can add to and label.

These columns reflect your project's or task's workflow, and you can move cards from left to right (for example "Open", "In Progress", and "Finished") as they near completion.

In MeisterTask, a project is composed of different tasks. Add these by clicking on the plus symbol at the bottom of any of your project columns. After that, you can drag and drop them into the appropriate column.

In MeisterTask, projects and tasks are visualized as Kanban boards.

When you click on a task, a detailed window should open in which you can edit and adjust its attributes. You can add subtasks, checklists, descriptions, and much more (we'll discuss this below).

Use Case Example: Content Creation

With MeisterTask, it's possible to manage all sorts of different types of projects, so long as you adjust your work areas to their processes.

Since we can't discuss every usage application, we chose a specific case to highlight the platform's features: Content creation for an online platform like EXPERTE.com.

Keep in mind that MeisterTask can be used for many other types of projects though.

MeisterTask's Views: Kanban, Agenda, and Timeline

Because the platform is based around Kanban, MeisterTask's selection of views isn't as impressive as other project management solutions from our sample. With that said, there are three main options:

  • Kanban: It's no surprise that the default project view is a Kanban board. Project and task progress is visualized in columns, with individual cards moving from left to right as they near completion.

  • Agenda: Alongside individual boards for single projects, there's also the Agenda view. This is a superordinate dashboard (also in Kanban style), which provides an overview of your projects.

Use the Agenda view to monitor tasks from different projects.

  • Timeline: Business subscribers and above get access to this view, which is a kind of Gantt chart. Use it to track project progress over time and plan tasks.

    You can drag and drop tasks into the timeline, or add them through the task submenu. It's possible to see who is responsible for projects here too, which simplifies team planning.

MeisterTask's Timeline view.

  • Reports: These visualize project data to provide greater insight into how work is progressing, which resources are being utilized, and other useful information. You can save and export reports for use in presentations or meetings.

MeisterTask generates automatic reports about your projects and tasks.

Comparing Views: Lacking Flexibility

If you'd like to visualize your tasks and projects in a variety of different ways, MeisterTask is far from the best choice, since there are much more versatile options on the market.

We particularly missed normal list or table views, depicting tasks on top of one another, with filter options. There also aren't detailed calendar, gallery, or card views.

To sum things up, MeisterTask is a Kanban tool with a timeline. Below, you can see which views MeisterTask offers compared to the other providers from our review series:

MeisterTask ist in erster Linie Kanban-basiert, unterstützt aber noch einige weitere Ansichten.

Powerful Mobile App for Task Management on the Go

Take advantage of MeisterTask's smartphone app to keep tabs on your projects and tasks on the go.

Its porting seems to have worked well: With its column-based design, which displays nicely on smartphones, and its limited variety of features, anyone can effectively use MeisterTask on a handheld device.

And the app is useful too: You can easily create new tasks, edit existing ones, or quickly add checklist entries with just a few taps.

MeisterTask's mobile app gives smartphone users access to the platform's features.

Straightforward, Kanban Style Platform

MeisterTask is a user-friendly, Kanban-style task management software. If you'd like to work according to the Kanban principle and don't need tables, lists, or other views, it offers everything that you'll need.

However, the minute you want to try something different, you'll notice the platform's limitations. While the focus on Kanban is good, Trello shows that versatility doesn't need to come at the cost of user-friendliness.

Tasks & Planning

Tasks are the smallest organizational unit in MeisterTask. Any activity that needs to be completed, whether independently or as part of a larger project, should be added to the MeisterTask dashboard.

These tasks can then be organized and grouped into Kanban-style lists, as they progress through previously defined phases or stages.

Add and Edit a New Task

To create a new task, click on the plus symbol in the column that you'd like to add it to. Don't worry if it's just a placeholder - all that's needed is the task's name.

After that, the task will be added to the column. To add more information and edit its attributes, click on it.

Provide more information and details about your task by clicking on it.

You'll have the following options, among others:

  • Mark as complete: Click on the blue "Complete" button to mark a task as finished. These can be easily archived and removed from your project. This helps to better track progress.

  • Assign: By clicking on the down arrow next to "Unassigned", you can assign responsibility for the task to a member of your team.

  • Title and description: Add or edit the task's title and description.

  • Add Checklist Item: Checklists are to-do lists of tasks that you can review once completed. Set these up in your project settings, and then add tasks to them. You can save time by using the same checklists.

  • Add Subtask: It's possible to further segment tasks into subtasks, as we explain below.

  • Add Attachment: Upload files that are stored locally, or link to them on cloud storage services like Google Drive or OneDrive. It's also possible to link to other Meister products like MeisterNote or MeisterMind.

  • Leave comments: Comment on tasks in the box under the Activity heading. Tag teammates by typing "@" followed by their name and they'll receive a notification.

In the menu to the right, you'll find a few more features and elements, such as:

  • Due date: Set a deadline for the task's completion.

  • Timeline scheduling: This is for the Timeline view and allows you to set a start and end date for the task.

MeisterTask's task settings in detail.

  • Watching: Use this to review or add observers to a task. They'll receive notifications when a task is commented on, or completed, or if they're mentioned.

  • Tags: Tasks can be organized further with color-coded tags. These can be customized to your preferences (for example, red for high-priority tasks or task categories).

Color-code your tasks with tags.

Add Custom Fields

If the above options aren't enough, you can add custom fields to any task. To access these, go to Project Settings and click on the Custom Fields tab on the far right, followed by "+ Add Custom Field".

Add custom fields to your tasks.

Unfortunately, custom fields can only be text or dropdown menus. This is likely attributable to the platform's Kanban focus since other types of fields that might be useful in different views aren't offered by MeisterTask.

Most of the other project management tools from our review series offer significantly more options for custom fields, as you can see here:

Dependencies and Subtasks in MeisterTask

As hinted at above, you can use subtasks to further segment your tasks into more manageable pieces. These have the same options and settings as regular tasks but are subordinated to them.

To view subtasks in your project list, you'll need to click on the filter menu to the right of your project screen and toggle the "Show Subtasks" switch on.

Toggle the "Show Subtasks" switch on in the Filter menu to see subtasks.

It's also possible to indicate dependencies between tasks. Related tasks can be grouped, preventing one another from being started, or duplicates. This also helps you see how different tasks in your project are related to one another.

There aren't any options for marking project progress with milestones or pre-defined goals (such as a specific number of articles per quarter). Below, you can see which features MeisterTask offers in comparison to other services:

MeisterTask offers fewer features than other platforms.

We're going to say it again: MeisterTask is a Kanban platform with Kanban tools. If you accept these conditions, there are plenty of options for flexibly organizing your tasks, including dependencies and subtasks.

However, tasks cannot be customized to your exact preferences, since that would contradict Kanban's principles. All told MeisterTask's options are fit for purpose.

Collaboration & Communication

You can use MeisterTask alone, within a team, or with those outside of your organization. To jointly work on projects, you'll need to invite your colleagues to them.

Invite and Manage Project Members

Click on the "Share" button within a project to add users and team members. In addition to the administrator role, there are four other options for new members:

  • Member: Members have access to all tasks within a project.

  • Guest: Guests can only work on those tasks that they've been given access to. This role is ideal for working with third parties (such as clients or freelancers).

  • Commenter: Commenters have access to all tasks, but can only comment on them.

  • Read only: Readers can see all tasks, but not take any actions.

Share your project with others to work on it jointly.

Create and Manage Teams

Project members can only access the project you've invited them to. For co-workers or those that you work on multiple projects with, you'll want to create a team, since this greatly simplifies collaboration.

To manage teams, click on "My Team" in the MeisterTask menu bar. You'll see all current user lists and can add new team members as well.

Team members have a key advantage over project members: They can add new members and quickly share the project with others (such as different departments).

In addition, team members have access to more settings, like the ability to limit access to team projects by IP areas.

Create a team to simplify how you and your colleagues work.

No Real-Time Collaboration

MeisterTask's collaboration features are limited to the essentials: You can assign tasks to users and communicate (via comments) with them. It's possible to react to comments with emojis.

And that's about it: Out of the box, MeisterTask doesn't support real-time collaboration. This means no private messages, live chats, group discussions, whiteboards, or shared document editing.

All of the above are possible with integrations and other Meister tools (more on this in the next section).

As you can see below, other project management tools offer significantly more native collaboration features than MeisterTask:

MeisterTask does not excel in terms of collaboration: For digital teamwork, the platform limits itself to comments, the ability to assign tasks, and emoji reactions.

If you're interested in real-time teamwork, you'll need other applications or integrations.

Advanced Features

Of course, there's much more to MeisterTask than what we've detailed above, including features that make it possible to create complex workflows. We'll start with the reporting features, which can be found on the Reports screen.

MeisterTask Reports: Custom Analytics

MeisterTask Reports provides data-based insights into your projects in the form of two kinds of reports:

  • Quick Reports: These default reports can be accessed by clicking on the Reports icon in the menu off to the left. They use pre-defined filters and provide immediate insight into key project aspects.

    You can view (1) all open tasks, (2) recently created tasks, (3) all completed tasks, (4) recently completed tasks, and (5) all due tasks.

Quick reports let you know within a matter of seconds how your projects are progressing.

  • Custom reports: If you'd like information that the Quick Reports don't cover, you can create custom reports. Select which projects should be taken into consideration, and filter data (status, section, date range, tags).

    In addition, you'll be able to specify how tasks are sorted on the x-axis and grouped in reports.

MeisterTask's custom reports.

Any custom filter you create can be saved, making it possible to generate your reports without needing to adjust your settings each time.

Reports can be exported as .xls (Excel) and .csv files.

Time Tracking in MeisterTask

It's possible to track and view how long certain tasks have been worked on. This allows you to see the amount of time your teammates spend on their assignments.

MeisterTask comes with a native time tracker.

Automate Workflows With MeisterTask

Are you unable to visualize a particular process with MeisterTask's standard features? If so, you can use the platform's automations by clicking on the "Automations" tab in the project settings menu.

Then click on "Add Automation" to open a list of automation templates and options:

Save time by automating routine processes.

At the moment, 11 automations are offered:

  • Assign Task: Automatically assign a task to a specific project member once it's in a certain column.

  • Update Status: Change a task's status automatically to "Open", "Finished", or "Archived", when it's added to the corresponding column.

  • Move Task: Transfer tasks to other projects or sections.

  • Update due date: Adjust the due date for a task automatically.

  • Time Tracking: Start or stop tracking time when a task is added to a specific column.

  • Update Tags: Add or remove tags automatically.

  • Add Checklist: A checklist is automatically added.

  • Recurring Task: These are regularly occurring tasks that are automatically created, such as weekly meetings, an email newsletter, or invoices at month's end.

You can automate tasks that need to be performed regularly.

  • Send Email: Automatically send an email to a certain user or group.

  • Send Slack Notification: Send a Slack notification to a particular user or channel.

  • Notify an Office 365 Group: Notify Office 365 users automatically about new tasks.

MeisterTask's automation features are practical and easier to set up than those in other project management tools.

However, because the pre-defined options are relatively limited, MeisterTask's automations are less flexible and cannot be used for complex workflows.

As an example, it isn't possible to link subtasks in automations, meaning that you won't be able to automate their creation or how they're worked on.

Other programs (Airtable, Trello, or monday.com) are much more versatile in this regard and allow users to create complex automations with triggers and reactions.

Limited Selection of Integrations

When it comes to integrations, MeisterTask doesn't have much to offer: Only a few programs, including Slack, Google Calendar, Microsoft Teams, Spark, and GitHub, are supported.

If you want to integrate MeisterTask into other programs, you'll need to use Zapier or its native API.

Good Foundation, but Only the Basics

MeisterTask does have a few things to offer apart from its basic features, however, these aren't anywhere near as flexible or comprehensive as what other project management software provides.

MeisterTask is less versatile in terms of additional features than other platforms. Automations are limited to a few pre-defined workflows, and there aren't too many integrations to choose from.

With that said, MeisterTask's automations are far more user- and beginner-friendly than those of its competitors. In addition, its reports are solid, and time tracking is built into the dashboard.

Anyone who wants to use MeisterTask with other programs can easily integrate it using Zapier.

Documentation & Support

MeisterTask's colorful help center is relatively well-stocked. On the homepage, you'll find everything you need: A search bar, article categories, selected FAQs, and contact options.

Support articles are nicely arranged in sub- and sub-subcategories (i.e. "First Steps", "Team Management", "Accounts and Payment"). Articles are well-written, easy to understand, and include videos, screenshots, GIFS, and links.

In MeisterTask's Academy, you'll find a series of video lectures that introduce all of the platform's basics and advanced features in little more than an hour.

MeisterTask's help center.

Direct support options depend entirely on the subscription you've purchased. In essence, there's email and hotline support, the latter of which is only for Business subscribers and above.

Pro subscribers get priority email support, which reacts somewhat quicker to requests.

Unfortunately, we had to wait relatively long for an answer to our query: It took MeisterTask's support team 12 days to reply to our request since there was allegedly a "higher than expected volume of requests".

Static content is good, however, if you're looking for a more human touch, you'll need to be patient. If you'd like to try your luck with other MeisterTask users, you can post in the Meister Community, which has around 5,000 members.

Pricing

There are four MeisterTask subscriptions, which are charged either monthly or annually (the latter comes with a slight discount): Basic, Pro, Business, and Enterprise.

  • Basic is MeisterTask's free version, designed for individuals with only a few projects. Up to three projects can be added, along with customizable boards, and a limited number of project members.

  • Starting with the Pro subscription, you'll get unlimited projects and notes, along with additional features like automations, reports, and agendas.

  • Even more features are included in the Business subscription, such as the ability to add subtasks, manage roles and privileges, use the timeline view, and create custom fields.

  • Large organizations can book an Enterprise subscription, adjusted to their individual needs. This includes support from a personal account manager along with onboarding assistance.

If you intend to structure your projects in Kanban style, MeisterTask has everything you need: You can create and organize endless Kanban boards in its intuitive dashboard.

On top of that, there are practical extras such as integrated time tracking and ready-made automation templates.

On the other hand, if you're not convinced about the merits of Kanban, MeisterTask probably isn't for you: For project planning, the platform is fairly rigid, and even basic views (tables or lists) aren't included.

Should (good) Kanban features not be enough, you'll likely be less than pleased with MeisterTask's rigidity. Rounding out the negatives, the platform is fairly expensive.

FAQs

Who is MeisterTask for?

MeisterTask is particularly well-suited for individuals and small teams that want a user-friendly and intuitive task management platform. It's great for projects that need to be structured in a Kanban board.
