Best Task Management Software 2017

The Task Management market is dominated by a high number of very similar Task Management solutions, nearly all of which focus on breaking down large projects into smaller units, as well as giving teams the ability to delegate tasks and collaborate on workloads.

As such, there is a high crossover with project management software, with many vendors adopting features that are associated with project management and vice versa. For example, some Task Management software may include functionality that provides additional support for projects as a whole, with resource management, team management and more.

The Task Management market is growing and will continue to grow for the next few years. The rising demand for business optimization is one of the primary catalysts for the success of this market as businesses are continuously looking for ways to reduce operational time and costs.

Products in the Task Management market generally have a low degree of differentiation. Some vendors specialize in team collaboration while others may specialize in individual to-do-lists. In addition, some vendors cater towards particular niches, such as software development. Lastly, some products also offer more advanced functionality such as dedicated workspaces for real-time idea brainstorming and in-depth audit trails.


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...

Task Management 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.


Common Features of Task Management

API Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are programmatic intersections with external products or platforms that allow for custom integrations with your own solutions or other solutions you are using.
Data Export Exporting functionality can be used to streamline the migration of data sets and information across systems, platforms or applications.
Data Import Importing functionality allows you to use data sets from other systems or platforms to cut down on data entry requirements or to more easily migrate records from similar applications you have used in the past.
External Integrations Integrations with other software products or platforms to improve efficiency and compatibility across systems.
Multi-User Supports more than just one user account and generally allows for collaboration with colleagues.
Notifications Includes notification support and sends you alerts with information on important events and other time sensitive instances. For example through push notifications on mobile phones or email notifications.
Project Management Manage projects from conception through the planning stage to delivery and post-project reporting phases. This allows organisation teams to organise resources, plan budgets and improve efficiency in the delivery of project objectives.
