This post was updated on January 7, 2019.
It’s our pleasure to introduce our biggest update yet: MeisterTask 2.0. MeisterTask 2.0 provides a fresh dashboard redesign, advanced productivity features and a brand new tech stack, making MeisterTask faster and more stable than ever. Read on to find out what’s new…
Note: This article was updated on January 7, 2019 to include the latest changes in MeisterTask’s dashboard!
New Customizable Dashboard
As soon as you open MeisterTask, you’ll recognize the difference.
Our shiny new dashboard makes better use of the available space and gives you more control over what you want to display.
In the My Tasks widget, you can:
- Sort tasks by due date, name or project
- Choose whether to display My Checklist items (more info about this below!)
- Choose to display only tasks that are currently in your Focus
Clicking on the @ button on top of your notifications will hide all notifications in which you’re not personally mentioned. This is a great way to quickly read through all notifications that require a personal response from you.
We’re also happy to announce that following your input, we’ve brought the time tracking widget back to the dashboard, so you can quickly view and edit your most recent time slips.
A New Look for Your Projects
Our project boards have also received a makeover, with new task headers and updated filter functionality.
Note that you can filter by assignee by clicking on the avatar of the person you’d like to filter by, before adding further filters such as tags, due date and task status.
New Productivity Features
First up, custom fields are now available for all MeisterTask Business users, enabling teams to define one or multiple fields in the project properties.
These pre-defined custom fields will then automatically appear within each project task, reminding team members to complete this information.
Say you’re using MeisterTask to manage your customer support, with custom fields you can ensure that each task (or ticket) includes the information you need to see the bug through to completion, such as ticket number, operating system and so on:
With the new checklist feature, you can now create quick to-dos on the fly, without linking the items with any specific project.
As there’s no need to designate a project or section, the tasks can be created straight from the dashboard, where they’re displayed, in seconds. If one of your to-dos turns out to require the input of other team members, you can always turn it into a real task and collaborate on it with others.
This feature is already available on iOS and Android, so following the introduction of MeisterTask 2.0, your checklist will become synced across all devices – web and mobile.
To make things a little easier, we’ve renamed our popular section actions feature to automations and given it a makeover that forms the basis for further upgrades to this feature.
You can still add new automations by clicking into the header of a section, but now you can also manage all automations by opening the project properties and switching to the Automations tab.
Automations currently cover everything previously offered by section actions, but will soon cover much more, for example, recurring tasks.
New Markdown Formatting for Tasks
With MeisterTask 2.0, we’ve also introduced a number of new Markdown formats for task descriptions and comments, meaning you can make your tasks prettier than ever.
All of the prior formatting functions are still available, but you can now add the following to your tasks, as well as:
- Headings in three different sizes
- Indented quotes
- Strikethrough text
- Horizontal lines
- Inline code, colored red
- Text in a code block.
All updated instructions on how to format your tasks can be found by clicking on the task description and then clicking the link below, titled Formatting:
Faster, Embedded Integrations
Our functionality surrounding integrations has also improved, as you can now set up integrations directly via the My Account area of MeisterTask.
With Zapier, for example, you can create so-called Zaps without even leaving MeisterTask, allowing you to send data to and from over 1,000 of your favorite apps.
Need to create a follow-up task every time a sales query enters your inbox? Zapier has you covered and with MeisterTask 2.0, Zaps are quicker than ever to set up.
Under the Hood: Improved Performance and Stability
Due to our new tech stack, the improvements aren’t just skin-deep. With the introduction of React and Redux, MeisterTask 2.0 is now faster and more stable than ever.
To give one example, we’re now able to focus on loading only the minimum amount of required data to load each area of the app. This makes MeisterTask incredibly fast, as we’re able to predict what should be loaded next, improving transitions within the app too.
Since the new tech stack gives our developers clear guidance on how to build new user interface components, we’ve improved rendering performance too. This, again, makes it faster to translate your data into the visual components that make up MeisterTask.
Additionally, thanks to the new tech stack, our developers will also have a much easier time reproducing and resolving bugs, resulting in a more stable product overall.
A More Consistent User Experience
Finally, one of the key goals of MeisterTask 2.0 was to provide a more consistent experience for our users.
With our new tech stack, we can now share components more easily with external integrations, enabling a more consistent user experience across both our products, MindMeister and MeisterTask, and our external integrations, such as MeisterTask for Microsoft Teams.
Over the course of the next few weeks and months, you’ll see a number of further features being introduced to MeisterTask 2.0. These include:
As one of our most popular feature requests, recurring tasks is high on our agenda and already in the works.
While you can already set up recurring tasks via our Zapier and IFTTT integrations, MeisterTask will soon offer a native feature for this, with even more customization options.
Soon we’ll also enable the ability to add multiple separate checklists within a task. This is a great way to group checklist items, for instance by type, team member or priority.
We sincerely hope you enjoy MeisterTask 2.0, and as always, we appreciate your feedback in the comments and via Twitter!

This looks great! 🎊 I’m really looking forward to the recurring tasks option – it will be nice to have more customization options that ifttt/zapier and hopefully a better way to manage a lot of recurring tasks. It’s the one thing I’m really missing in Meistertask.
Thanks, Anne! We’re super excited to launch it! And yes, recurring tasks are on their way, so stay tuned 🙂
Something not covered in the blog post–but is very important for users using both MindMeister and Meistertask is the use of their mark down and formatting. Meistertask offers some new markdown options to use in card descriptions. If you are specing out a project with a MindMeister map you can apply these same markdown options in the “notes” of a map node and when you convert the node into a MeisterTask card the markdown will follow the notes over to the card description.
A couple of caveats though. First, you cannot use rich text formatting options in your MindMeister notes, you have to stick with plain text and use the markdown to apply formatting. Second, this takes practice, be persistent and forgiving if your team needs time to ramp up to this best practice. Finally, the sync is one way, changes to the description on the MeisterTask card will not sync back to the notes for a map node; information flows from the map to the card only.
I’ve tested this out and it works like a charm. Just be aware that if your description on a card looks a mess that probably means you have some rich text formatting. Just go to the map node, update the node note to “plain text only” and then apply your markdown, the card will pick up the new formatting right away.
Hope this helps!
Hi Kevin – thanks so much for sharing your workflow, it sounds like a great process! Also a very good point on the mark down and formatting updates – I’ll update the blog post to include these task enhancements too 😉 Thanks!
Achei muito interessante as novidades, nova formatação e aguardo as novas implementações. Porém, uma pequena mas importantíssima informação foi retirada nessa atualização: A contagem de cards no canto superior direito do painel do projeto. Isso é de extrema importância quando aliada aos filtros. Por favor insiram novamente, pois é a única coisa que me fez retornar para a versão anterior.
Hey Rogério! Thanks for your comment and great to hear you’re excited about MeisterTask 2.0! Regarding the task counter in projects, this has now been replaced by heightened search functions. To view how many active and open tasks there are in a project, you can use the ‘Scope’ filter within the search function and filter by your selected project and then by Scope: ‘Active Tasks’ or by Scope: ‘Archived Tasks’. Here’s a walk-through for doing so: https://support.meistertask.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000116159-View-and-Restore-Archived-Tasks-MeisterTask-2-0-
Hope that helps and let us know how you get on! Cheers!
MeisterTask 2.0 looks and feels great!
The only downside so far is that the import from Trello doesn’t work right now.
A quick fix should do it.
Hi Ben, thanks for reaching out – we’re really pleased you like it! Thanks also for pointing out the Trello import issue – our development team are aware of the issue and are on the case, so will work to get it fixed ASAP. Thanks!
I found another issue:
When clicking an a task, the zoom in and zoom out animations are really slow at not fluent at all (both browser and Windows 10 applications) which doesn’t look as nice and smooth as the rest of the app.
Hey Ben, we just tried to reproduce this in the Windows 10 app but weren’t able to, so would you be able to drop us an email to [email protected] with your system information and potentially a screencast, if possible? We’ll then look into this ASAP. In terms of using MeisterTask 2.0 in the browser, not sure which one you’re currently using, but we’d recommend Chrome 🙂 Thanks!
I am having exactly the same issue; using the Chrome Browser on Windows 10. Windows 7 doesn’t appear to have this issue.
Woohoo, nice work! I love the new dashboard, but the title and description of the tasks is now really, really short. I, for example, also use the task tags for further information. So for me it is essential for my workflow to see the task tags at a glance at the dashboard. So maybe you can introduce an option for a “detailed task description” in the dasboard view (as ist was before). That would be great. Thx
Hey Moritz, thanks for your comment and great to hear you love the new dashboard. Regarding the task layout, our design team are aware of this issue and are working on an update now, in order to provide more space for task details and tags. We’ll have an update on this shortly. Thanks!
Well done on the new MeisterTask; I’m looking forward to using it. For me, the dashboard tweaks will probably help me out the most.
It’s a shame that Custom Fields are a Business only feature. There was an opportunity there to create a point of differentiation from the competition by enabling at least a limited number of custom fields for paying Pro users. That would make integrations, with Zapier for example, even more flexible and be an attraction for freelancers or small teams.
Hey Adam! Great to hear you’re enjoying the new dashboard and thanks very much for your feedback. I’m afraid we do plan on keeping custom fields as a Business feature though, so if you’d like any further information on what our Business plan has to offer, as well as the costs involved, please feel free to take a look at our Business plan page: https://www.meistertask.com/business
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out! Thanks again!
Hello, Really Great effort and nice work on MeisterTask 2.0
I love the new look and the new options.
I just had some idea’s in my mind and wanted to share with you earlier, now i wish if i sent my feedback earlier so you can think about implement it to MeisterTask 2.0
1) If we can add the option of Right click any Task to move it to another Project,
Instead of opening every single Task, and the click the 3 dots … on the upper left, and choose to move.
That would make moving the Tasks between projects much easier.
2) Another important thing, when i was adding Checklist Items, and reoped the Task later to move the order of the Checklist Items,
I accidentally clicked the X button instead of the 3 bars button to move the Item,
and the checklist item were removed and i couldn’t Undo this action, i tried Ctrl+Z but still it was gone forever!! with an important info”phone number in my case”
I hope you add an confirmation message appears when removing any Checklist Item, or Activate a mechanism of Undo deleting Checklist items by mistake.
3) One last thing, sometimes when i have many Sections inside a Project
and i want to move a Task to the last section on the left, I prefer to zoom out with Ctrl – from the keyboard, since i work on smaller 19″ screens sometimes, so when i zoom out with Ctrl – like 3x times and try to move a task, i find that the task and pushed far away from the mouse cursor, and its only precise when the screen is set back to normal zoom settings.
I hope you can fix that, if you don’t understand my bad english lol, i can happily upload a short video for you here or on youtube so you get my idea.
Thank and best of luck with MeisterTask 2.0,
Really loved the new update, and wish to see it more better and better.
Hey Ahmed – thanks so much for your ideas and great to hear you’re enjoying MeisterTask 2.0! I’ve passed on both of your suggestions to our developers as feature requests, so they’ll consider the feasibility of implementing these from there 🙂 thanks again!
Hi Ahmed, we’re really sorry you weren’t able to access your MeisterTask app yesterday, but I’m glad you were eventually via the browser. We did have an unplanned period of downtime following an update, but our team worked hard to fix it as quickly as possible, and all was resolved after around an hour.
Please note that if you experience issues accessing MeisterTask, it’s best to drop us a quick email to [email protected], as the email is monitored 24/7, unlike the comment section on our blog.
Apologies again that the downtime affected your work, but all should be back to normal now – if you have any further problems, please do drop us an email! Thanks!
Today i’m really disappointed from Mindmeister !
The service is unstable, and the application is not starting and i can’t get the important info for my work that is saved inside Mindmeister..
Really Really disappointed, and the service have been lagging in syncing the past couple of weeks but i thought it’s a matter of time and it will be fixed.!
But After today and the application is not working at all, im leaving the with huge disappointment, after i’ve had high hopes on upgrading to PRO subscription.
Sadly after what happened today I can’t trust your service anymore after i was panicked when it wasn’t working after many attempts of opening and closing the application,
and i’ll be back to my trusty Trello wish i believe that your service was built on top of it.
Wish you the best and better service later.
Just as a quick update, i tried to log in via the website
and i can log in with no problem, and all the data are in there,
but still i have a distrust issue with the application right now.
and it’s very very slow compared to trello.
Hello, the v2.0 looks really great, but 2 important issues, which should be (from my point of view) covered soon as possible:
1) swiftness and smoothness – things which were in the v2.0 description emphasized, are not reality in macOS app (MBP, macOS 10.13.6.) Switching between projects boards, dashboard-project board, task-project board is slow and glitchy. I’ve tried to reinstall app couple of times with no effect, my colleagues have the same issue.
2) missing functionality of upcoming tasks in dashboard. Me and my team were really used to see the upcoming tasks (based on due date) in the dashboard, which was cool from planning. Now this option has dissapered.
other things in mind:
– “mirror” task – task created in a similar way as duplicate. This mirror task can be placed in the same or different project. In this case, every change made in one task will be mirrored in the second task (from description to time tracking). Use: in my company we have usually many projects and one “overview” project (for management). In each single project the members are using one task as daily journal and other as open questions, which are then manually copied to “overview” project. The access rights of company members aren’t the same between single projects and this “overview” project. It would be great when mirror task could reflect this changes instantly between projects.
– create the possibility of duplicating the whole column
– create the possibility of exporting predefined checklists in another project
– upgrade the task relations; for example, when a task is related to other, after clicking on one of them it would be visually linked/highligted to the other (helpful in projects with 70+ active tasks); also to create an icon (similar as for blocked tasks) of relation in task; when task is blocked, it shouldn’t be allowed to move/mark it as done until the blocking task is finished
Hey Peter – Thanks for your feedback 🙂
Regarding listing tasks by due date on the dashboard, this feature will be returning, so please do stay tuned on that!
On the Mac app issues, would you mind writing a quick email to [email protected] with your username and system information, so we can take a look into this for you?
Thanks also for your ideas and suggestions – I’ve passed these on to our team as feature requests. Cheers!
It seems as though the calendars have some bugs. If I select July 1, it sets the due date as Jun 30. Also, if the task is overdue, the date in the overdue “banner” is shown in European format (“Due 30/06/2018”), even though my time zone is set to Central US, both on my computer and in my MeisterTask account settings.
Hey Thomas, we’re sorry that you’re having trouble here – we’re aware of the issue (it’s occurring to users in U.S. timezones) and the developers are on the case with deploying a fix very soon! Thanks!
Please bring back the tracked time diagram, where one can see how many hours have been worked each day. I think this may be important to many people and also one of the main things that kept me using meistertask. Maybe an option to hide/show this feature or option to chose whether display notifications or tracked time.
Hey Uspot! Thanks for your feedback – we’ll be introducing a tracked time feature soon, which will allow you to view and manage of all of the tasks you’re currently tracking. If you wish to see the tracked time diagram, please take a look in our statistics and reports area. More info on that here: https://www.meistertask.com/blog/product-news/2016/12/07/statistics-and-reports/
Hope that helps 🙂 thanks!
Fist of all, congratulations on the new release. I love the new look and feel. However, I am really missing the Time Tracking overview on the dashboard and also in the projects. That was one of the essential tools for me to track my day. Do you have any plans on bringing this back?
Ditto all of the above. Thanks!
Hey both! Thanks for your feedback and great to hear you’re enjoying the new look and feel of MeisterTask 2.0, Jonas! In regards to time tracking, we’ll be introducing a new tracked time feature soon, which will allow you to view and manage of all of the tasks you’re currently tracking. If you’re missing the tracked time diagram, you can find it in our statistics and reports area. More info on that here: https://www.meistertask.com/blog/product-news/2016/12/07/statistics-and-reports/
Hope that helps 🙂 thanks!
All nice except one issue:)
In MT v1 opening one notification from particular task cleared all of the notifications from this task. In MT v2 it doesn’t work. Imagine someone added 10 photos to the task and then you have to click each notification to make it disappear.
Will you fix this one?
And two more items to fix:
– Desktop app – clicking on a link inside a comment opens another window of this app. This should be opened with the default browser.
– Using “move task” option just got a way more complicated. In v1 the list of projects was starting with current project. Now it’s just a lists of all projects in default order. It’s inconvenient if you want to quickly move the task to another section in the same project without opening the project (accessing it from notifications).
Hey Adam, thanks for your feedback and ideas! A couple of things here will require some further testing on our side and information from you, so could you drop us an email on [email protected] so we can look into this further? We can also pass on your suggestions as feature requests from there 🙂 Thanks!
Ok, I dropped a line to your support. Hope they will help.
Great – thanks, Adam! They’ll be in touch!
The new 2.0 update has made MeisterTask unusable for me. Every transition (opening tasks, pasting text, etc.) causes screen flashes for several seconds, pasting a long task note result in a checklist being created (??), every click takes 3-5 seconds to display something on the screen.
I’ve gone back to 1.0, which has its own share of issues with the text editor but it’s at least usable.
Can you tell us which browsers have you tested MeisterTask v2.0 with?
Hey Sebastiano! Thanks for your feedback and sorry to hear you’re having trouble with MeisterTask 2.0. Our developers are aware that some users are experiencing this issue and are on the case. Chrome seems to be the most stable for this issue at the moment and they’re aiming to have a permanent fix for it soon! If the issue continues, please send us an email on [email protected]. Apologies again and thanks for sticking with us!
Hi Mark – really sorry about the trouble there. This is a known issue with Firefox and the team are close to deploying a fix for it. In the meantime, please try using MeisterTask in another browser and if that doesn’t help, please send us an email on [email protected] so we can look into it further! Thanks!
Same here! At the city of freiburg we use Firefox ESR 52.8.0 (32 Bit). Firefox ESR is widely
used in governments, schools & large organisations. A pity.
Hey there – thanks for your comments! Not to worry – we’re by no means abandoning Firefox. We’ve deployed several performance improvements already and have more coming this week. However, if you’re still experiencing issues after then, please do drop us an email to [email protected] so we can look into this further. Thanks!

Hola Yvan! Muchas gracias por tus comentarios! Estamos felices de saber que te gustan las mejoras!
Thanks for your efforts regarding MeisterTask 2.0. However, I am having some difficulties with the new dashboard.
It doesn’t seem to be possible anymore to display all my tasks ordered by due date(!). The standard sorting is by project, which I don’t like. I know that I can display due tasks, but this only shows tasks which are due either today or in the past. I would like to have a display option to see all tasks ordered by due date (including future due dates) as it was possible in Meistertask 1.0.
My daily work is heavily relying on this feature and so I would appreciate to get this feature back as soon as possible.
Hey! Thanks for your feedback – we’ve heard this from a few users, so we’ll be bringing this feature back shortly. It’s just in the works 🙂 Cheers!
Thanks! That’s great to hear. I love working with MeisterTask!
Thanks – it’s great to have you on board! 🙂
So excited to see you guys moving forward with a transparent product upgrade roadmap and this new batch of features!
One request I still have that other Kanban apps like Trello seem to have had natively for awhile is the option to see exposed checklists in the the default, bird’s eye project view without having to open a card. The option to hop around and interact with checklists quickly would allowing me to a) see how far along the micro-tasks within a task are for better grasp of overall progress and b) check off items as I go along without forgetting they’re buried inside of an unopened card. Even better UI-wise if they had a little progress meter with fill % based on #checklist items complete/total #checklist items–I’ve seen that in other apps as well.
Certainly not all the cards in my projects have checklists–some are quick links to an asset or external conversation in a Basecamp thread, a summary of an email, etc…but the majority do since most tasks are comprised of smaller pieces. A toggle to make checklists viewable and interactive as described on a per case basis would be so, so lovely and helpful.
I hope this makes sense! Would be great to see added to your next round of features. Thanks again for the hard work and big reveal!
Hey Brandi – thanks so much for your feedback!
We’ll definitely add your idea regarding interactive checklist items to our feature request list and see whether we can work it into a future update.
In the meantime, if you add checklist items as bullet points within the task description, these will appear at a glance from project view, without needing to open tasks. Plus, with our strikethrough formatting, these bullet points could always be ‘checked off’ too, for a quick overview of checklist progress. For more information on how to format a task description, open the chosen task, click on the task description and then click the link below, titled ‘Formatting’. From there, you’ll have all the shortcuts you need to add bullet points to your tasks and more 🙂
Thanks again for your ideas and hope that helps in the meantime!
Thanks, Olivia! Great idea to try in the meantime! 😀
No worries, Brandi! Hope it helps for now! 🙂
Love the new look and feel! Still waiting for a timeline view (like a gantt-chart but please make it modern) on each Project and overall tasks/person! 🙂
Thanks for your feedback, Emma! I’ll add your idea as a feature request, so the developers can bear it in mind for a future update 🙂
We would also love a Gantt like chart in statistics section.
Good to see some updates! Congrats!
I’m not a big fan of the outputted html though! Everything is styled with inline css, almost no classes are used and the only html-element I see is div…
With the older version we had made a chrome plugin for tweaking the layout a bit but with current html it is almost impossible.
With that said we probably stay with you guys because we like the clean & simple layout.
Hi Wim – thanks for your feedback. For our latest update, we needed to overhaul the product entirely, introducing a brand new tech stack to boost the product’s speed and stability. I’m sorry this led to your chrome plug-in no longer working. However, we would definitely be curious to hear more about how you were tweaking the layout. If you have any suggestions, please do send them to [email protected] and we can bear them in mind for future updates. Cheers!
Rather than a single due date, allowing for a range of dates during which the project has to be completed would be useful. Also, if a task with a due date blocks another task with a due date, there should be the option to automatically keep them the same amount of time apart if either’s due date is updated.
I think these features would make Meister a comprehensive solution for project mgmt!
Hi Ian – thanks for your ideas! We’ll share them with our development team so they can bear them in mind for future updates. In the meantime, some teams use our custom fields feature to add multiple deadlines within each task, which were launched as part of MeisterTask 2.0 for Business users. Thanks again!
Thanks to the MeisterTask team for the continuous improvements on this great application! V2.0 looks promising. However, I find the new font size somewhat too large for my taste: I cannot see as many tasks as before on my screen (Windows PC). Is there a way to adjust this?
Hi Richard – thanks for your message! We actually didn’t alter font sizes in this update. Could you try zooming out (Ctrl -) to see if it helps? If you still have trouble, please feel free to drop us an email to [email protected] and we’ll look into it for you. Thanks!
Thanks for the update. I’m looking forward to recurring tasks!
I do have one item on my wish list other than gantt charts. One of the things I miss most from basecamp is the ability to assign items in a list to different people in a project. When you are working with teams and on large projects there are often occasions when an item requires 2 or more people. Also there are projects that are more complex and having each task listed separately makes it unwieldy and hard to manage. My brain is wired to function like an outline with a natural hierarchy of projects broken into pieces assigned to teams, and further broken into individual tasks assigned to multiple people that I need to be able to keep track of.
Hi Joanna – thanks for your comment! We’ll share you GANTT suggestion with our developers. One workaround for the multiple assignee request is to use the checklist function within each task to delegate each element of the task to different team members. For example, you could write ‘Olivia: to write content’ as the first checklist item, ‘John: to complete design’ as the second checklist item and so on. You can then assign the task to the first person and once they’ve complete their element of the task, they can check off their checklist item and assign on to the next person. Although this means that it’s only assigned to one person at once, we find this helps to create accountability within tasks, as it’s clear whose responsibility it is to see that task (or that checklist item within the task) through. You can add all relevant team members as watchers too, so they stay in the loop: https://support.meistertask.com/hc/en-us/articles/202479632-Following-Watching-a-Task However, we’ll make sure to pass on your suggestion in the meantime. Hope that helps! Thanks!
I’d like custom fields too but do not want to pay twice the price for a single feature … I’d be willing to spend over 100 bucks for the bundle, if this feature would make it to the Pro plan. And I think other Pro users would thank you for this, too.
Hey Carsten – thanks for your comment but I’m afraid we don’t have any plans to move custom fields to the Pro plan, at present. However, we do also offer a Business bundle, which would cover custom fields too. Full details on that can be found here: https://get.mindmeister.com/bundle/ Thanks again!
Small issue in the windows App:
The calendar for setting the due date starts with sunday even though in my profil settings monday is selected!
Hi Stefan – Sorry about this issue. Our developers are aware of the bug and are working on a fix, which will be deployed ASAP. If useful, you can track all updates via the change logs: https://www.meistertask.com/changelog Thanks!
Thanks for reply and the link to the changelog – that was new to me!
You’re very welcome, Stefan! Glad to help 🙂
Would be good, to have a hover function on the dashboard to see the whole task-title, because a lot of them are truncated.
Hi Stefan – thanks for this suggestion. I’ll share it with our developers as a feature request, so they’re able to bear it in mind for future updates. Thanks again!
Overall, great update. However, I have a few suggestions. It would be nice if we could include automations when we duplicate a project. Right now I have to manually add five automations to each lane/column in my current workflow. I can have anywhere from 5-7 lanes depending on the project type. This get really tedious. Worse case, I am adding and configuring 35 automatons. Also, I am no longer able to delete an automation directly from the column it’s been added to in the webapp, it’s still possible to do it in the iOS app however. I have to click on “manage” which includes all 35 automations and I have to find the one that refers to the column that I would like to delete. Again, this is very tedious.
Hi Dominic, thanks so much for your suggestions and feedback! Unfortunately, our duplication function doesn’t currently copy section automations on the web app, but we are planning to add a template feature in the future, which will cover your request. This is part of a bigger project to align all features across our iOS and web apps 🙂 All of our updates are announced over social media and via our change logs, so keep an eye on those: https://www.meistertask.com/changelog Thanks again!
Great update. I think now you’re read to be promoted to my only task management tool =)
I am missing one feature though… On the android widget it is not possible to choose the checklist as target for new tasks. I think that should even be the default option. For now I have to set it to a dummy-project, go there and assign it to the project I want it to be in, which is not very efficient. I’m using the widget often to write something down that I have in my head without wanting to deal with any further at that time. This keeps my focus on whatever else I’m doing in that moment
Oh and btw… I’m not a fan that I need another account to post something here.
Hey – thanks for your feedback. We’ve passed this idea on to our Android team as a feature request to take into account for a future update 🙂 Also, it’s great to hear we’re up there as your top task management tool! Thanks again!
Any idea when recurring tasks will be ready, really need this.
Hi Tim, we’re hoping to get this released before the year is over (can’t guarantee it 100%, but we’ll do our best!)
Hi MeisterTask Team,
Do you happen to have any news on the Recurring Tasks feature? Are you getting close to launching it?
Many thanks and thumbs up for a wonderful product!
Hi Harald, we’re definitely getting closer! We’ll announce it here on the blog and on all our social media channels as soon as the feature is available – thank you for bearing with us!
Just curious – has anyone raised the idea of being able to collapse sections from view? From a focus standpoint, I think it would be really beneficial to be able to hide the backlog items so as to not have them cluttering up the beautiful UI (and my brain!). What do you think?
I’ve just started using Kanban/MeisterTask in the last few days and while there are a few tweaks I’ll be hoping/hanging out for, I must admit it is pretty good straight out of the box. Thanks team!
Hi Kylev, thanks very much for your feedback! Collapsible sections is definitely something to look into – we’ve forwarded your feature request to the team.
+1 on this suggestion
If it helps, I ended up just moving the backlog to the far right of my columns so that it is scrolled off my screen. Seems to be working so far as a workaround. 🙂
Icons and nearly everything on the dashboard appear grainy, like they were an up-scaled jpeg image rather that a vector graphic and sadly it makes things look sub-par, though otherwise I like the modern UX/UI feel.
Also, please add either an individual task identifier like a number or a way to link/connect tasks to each other, or do both 🙂 Also, task categories would be nice addition.
Hi Jacob, MeisterTask does offer due date notifications, and you can select how long in advance you’d like to be notified on your phone. Here’s an article that describes the functionality: https://support.meistertask.com/hc/en-us/articles/202560741-Notifications
Does this cover what you had in mind? Or could you otherwise specify what exactly you were looking for? Thanks!
I’d love to be able to assign tasks to multiple people. At times I want two of my team to work on a particular task and there is no way to do this at the moment without duplicating the task which means the checklist is not properly up to date.
Guys, cmon, pls, add function to assign element of a checklist to the teammember.
We’r in our mobile games development suffering without this.
Greatest update. Please implement direct synchronization with Todoist to create and check tasks.
I didn’t see a Feature Roadmap anywhere on either website. Do you know if any of the following is under consideration?
– Dark Mode
– Priority Flags
– AI-algorithm “smart” scheduling of tasks (like TimeHero)
Thanks in advance for your help! Love both software platforms!
