Take the complexity out of project management with HiTask’s single screen dashboard.

Bottom Line

HiTask is a simple yet effective task management tool built to help teams stay organized and boost productivity. This software allows you to view projects, tasks, team members, and a calendar within a single-page dashboard.

The application’s extremely intuitive interface makes creating new projects and assigning tasks effortless. The built-in team calendar is excellent for getting a high-level overview of your to-do list and brings transparency to the whole team. HiTask offers important features like selective sharing permissions, time tracking, and real time notifications. Unfortunately, we found the solution to be missing a lot of advanced features that come with most project management tools such as progress reports, gantt charts, and a Kanban board view for agile teams. Therefore, this software can be seen as a combination of Trello and Basecamp due to the ease of use and basic to-do list functionality.

HiTask prides themselves on being such a simple tool that no training or documentation is needed. I tested this myself and found this to be 100% accurate. The onboarding process was seamless, and we were actively using the software within minutes thanks to it’s instinctive dashboard.

We love the fact that this solution has comprehensive tag filtering making it easy to sort and locate tasks by priority, due date, color, tag, and user. Another impressive feature they offer is the ability to work without internet access. Simply select the offline work mode and continue working on your tasks, once you’re connected to internet your updates will automatically sync onto the dashboard. The Outlook and Google Calendar integration is also a major plus for teams looking to view their calendar and tasks that have defined due dates in one place.

This solution would be great for small teams with smaller projects as the software has trouble handling a lot of data and can freeze up from time to time. Scaling could be a major concern here. That being said, I recommend HiTask if you are looking to increase communication across departments, improve organization, and want a simple to-do list layout with no learning curve.

    Has allowed our team to be more transparent and become more productive. Was so easy for our non-technical members to pickup HiTask.

    + PROS: Simple UI, Ease of use, Reminders, Reports. I love the built-in calendar for getting a high-level overview of tasks and the Google Calendar integration has been so useful.
    - CONS: Slow if you have a lot of data, not the best time-tracking feature.

    Simple, straight forward software – we were able to pick up the tool within minutes. Definitely a great tool for teams on the smaller side.

    + PROS: Allows you to generate time reports to see the amount of time spent on tasks. They can easily assign tasks and projects to each other. Really like being able to create tasks using email
    - CONS: Doesn't allow you to give individual users project level access - users either see all of the projects or none.

    A must-have for organizing people and projects

    + PROS: I love the ease of use and way that it allows multiple people to stay in communication and making progress as a group without tying up a lot of our time in meetings.
    - CONS: the only issue we have found is when using it with a touch screen, it is easy to make a mistake and move tasks around when you didn't want to. not an issue if you are using a mouse and keyboard.

    This solution is fantastic for my team to have a joint to-do list. It’s a shame that it doesn’t show notifications on the mobile app.

    + PROS: Great for budgeting, issue tracking, collaboration.Has the typical reporting dashboard, but the big pro here is that it allows users to create custom reports.

    Hitask’s tool allows you to see the bigger picture about the tasks that you’re working on. It’s more easy to flip between projects, over other products, and look at specific spans of time. Items are easily tagged and managed.

    + PROS: Time tracker. Deadlines. Automatic status notifications.
    - CONS: Few integrations. No board view.
