Project Features

Our Kanban-style project boards are fully customizable – from project icons to workflow.

See your project the way that helps you the most by filtering by Assignee, Tag, Watcher, Due date, Status, or Schedule.


Similar to a Gantt chart, see all tasks within a project together in a calendar view by placing them on the Timeline.


Automate repeating steps in your workflow to increase efficiency and consistency —  let MeisterTask save you time.

Recurring Tasks

If you need to perform the same task regularly, don’t start from scratch each time. Instead, set up a template for a recurring task.

Task Limits (WIP Limits)

Focus your team’s work by limiting the amount of tasks you take on at one time. Then watch as tasks speed through your workflow!
