Review: Droptask

Droptask is an awesome visual task/project management tool. Its super flexible setup means that it would work just as well for solo workers as a team, and its reasonable price ($6.50/month) makes it accessible for pretty much anyone. Check out the review to see how it works, and here’s a few more notes:

  • The version in the video is the free version – as you can see, it’s still very full featured (and it’s not team limited: the free version works for up to two people and five projects)
  • The paid version includes, among other things, task dependencies, subtasks, file attachment, Google tasks & calendar integrations, project templates and themes (and y’all know how I am about anything that lets me customize my colors!), and the ability to forward emails into your Droptask inbox
  • iPhone & iPad apps currently available, Android apps in the works (and I haven’t tried it, but the iOS apps look really well designed from the app store previews)
  • I love that the changes as far as priority, effort required, etc. are immediately visible and that you can see them at a glance before you drill down into a particular group
  • I also love that you can see the list view and the visual view – great for teams that are a mix of left/right brain people (or people who are a mix of left/right brain types themselves!)

In short: Check it out. I’m hard pressed to think of another productivity tool as innovative and affordably priced, and there’s a solid chance that I’ll be giving it a go for my internal task management soon. (And if I do, I’ll do a full-blown tutorial showing how I’ve set it up!)

  2. Thanks for all of your reviews, Michelle. I’ve been going through a bunch of them and really appreciate how much time your insights are saving me!

    Do you think the $6.50/month for PRO is accurate? It seems like that’s per user but they are not very upfront about that; on the pricing chart the smallest they have is $24.99/month for 5 users. Maybe if I were to sign up for the trial I would see an option for fewer users.

    • Your’e welcome Tzaddi! One of my goals in 2015 is to get back on the reviews bandwagon 🙂 It was a while ago that I signed up for the Droptask trial; I feel like I got the $6.50 a user from somewhere inside the interface and that it was definitely for a one person user team. I would hazard a guess that they’re trying to market to a more enterprise market, hence starting out at teams of 5. Logging in now to see if I can find it on the inside…and yeah, once you login, it gives you an option to upgrade for $6.50/month for one user. 🙂
