Task Management Software

A core component of project management with plenty of software options available is task management. Task management software often features the ability to assign work / tasks to users or whole teams, create subtasks and gives teams the ability to share the workload and collaborate. In most applications tasks can be viewed in a cascading fashion or in a timeline style with deadlines and progress tracking. Task management software can range from simple to-do-lists to highly functional tasks management platforms with multi-user capabilities and extensive custom-field items that enable advanced features like file attachments, tasks exporting and task categorization.  Read the full software guide...


What is Task Management Software?

Task management software is any digital solution that helps manage and track a particular task throughout its lifecycle. The key software features of task management often focus on task creation, assignment, reassignment, prioritization, tracking, and report generation.

Unlike project management software, task management solutions usually focus on handling smaller, independent tasks. However, products more suitable for handling interdependent tasks within larger projects comprising of multiple team members are also available. Depending on your task management goals, you may need a simple to-do list application or an all-encompassing solution that helps handle more complex tasks.

Task management software often features the ability to create, assign and schedule tasks and subtasks, track progress, share files, change priorities, and determine time taken on a task. More advanced products allow you to manage remote teams, send notifications and reminders to team members, and add notes and comments to a task. By keeping all conversations in one place, task management software also helps improve collaboration between internal teams.
