It's been reported that successful team leaders can spend up to 75% of their time managing their team.
With the aim of supporting teams to work smarter, rather than harder, MeisterTask have launched a new suite of features to help teams achieve successful and transparent workflows, without the huge time commitment. With Statistics & Reports, MeisterTask aims to help team members and managers to focus their time on output, instead of the bureaucracy involved in reporting on it.
The Statistics & Reports features provide users with auto-generated reports, providing a detailed and visual overview of team performance and project progression.
The update includes the following features:
- Reports: MeisterTask users can view and export auto-generated reports covering new, completed, overdue, upcoming or long-running tasks, filtered by team or user.
- Performance: The performance tracking feature enables team leaders and members to view the number of new and completed tasks within each project, as well as filter these results by project, section or user.
- Time Tracking: MeisterTask users are able to track how long each task, or a category of tasks have been taking, while crowning the team's top time trackers.
- Calendar View: Using the new Calendar View of upcoming and former tasks, users and team leaders can view which tasks are imminent and which to prioritize, based on due dates.
All reports can be downloaded as CSV files, editable in Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets.
The features are available to MeisterTask Pro users. As part of the Statistics & Reports Launch, MeisterTask are offering 20% off the annual Pro plan, using promo code ‘statistics'. For more information on the update and offer, please visit the MeisterTask website.
Wouter Zwarekant, Creative Director of We Brand Creative said:
"At We Brand Creative, we use MeisterTask as the bedrock for our client work and team management and there's no doubt that the Statistics and Reports update will boost this work. With the ability to view task and project progression at a glance, we'll quickly be able to jump in and offer support in areas where we see that work is bottle-necking. Using the auto-generated reports, we can present on project progress and hours worked to clients, while using the reports internally to evaluate completed projects and streamline our workflows.”
Till Vollmer, Managing Director of MeisterLabs said:
"Our aim at MeisterLabs is to help teams in achieving creative and productive workflows but unfortunately, team bureaucracy can slow these processes down. As a result, we're thrilled to be unveiling a new suite of features which are aimed at helping teams to cut down on their admin, achieving efficient team and project management, without the overbearing time commitment.”
