Trello Vs Meistertask: An Overview

At a glance, Trello and Meistertasks seem like different tools.

Trello describes itself as a team Visual collaboration tool for tasks and project management. Whereas Meistertask is known as an agile task management tool.

But when you break it down, they both have very similar features.

Project Planning Features

Trello

Trello’s paid plans come with a calendar view for easy project planning and tracking.

Any task that has a start and an end date is automatically added to the calendar. You can also manually add tasks directly to the calendar view.

Meistertask

Meistertask uses a timeline view instead of a calendar.

Some businesses find this a more effective way to keep track of and plan projects compared to a calendar.

You can drag and drop tasks from your board to your timeline or create new tasks straight onto the timeline.

Task Management Features

Trello and Meistertask both raise the game when it comes to their task management features.

Trello

Trello is the most popular task management tool around for a good reason. It comes with a wide range of features including:

  • Custom task workflows
  • Kanban task boards
  • Task scheduling
  • Custom task fields
  • Task labels
  • Multiple task assignees
  • Comments and file attachments

Their premium plans also give you the ability to automate your task workflows. The tasks also have checklists that help you to improve the quality of your various tasks.

Meistertask

Meistertasks doesn’t quite have the range of features and additional tools that come with Trello. Their features include:

  • Custom task workflows
  • Kanban boards
  • Task start and end dates
  • Comments and file attachments

However, it gives you access to recurring tasks and task dependencies which Trello doesn’t offer.

The downside of Meistertask is that there can only be one user per task. This can be a big hindrance for businesses that need multiple team members to collaborate on a particular task.

Workload Management Features

Unfortunately neither Trello nor Meistertask currently has a dedicated workload management feature. However, they do have features that can lend themselves to helping manage your workload.

Trello

Trello has plans for a workload management feature that’s currently a work-in-progress.

You can still use the team table to show what project each team member is currently working on and what their current availability status is.

You can also integrate time tracking with Trello.

Meistertask

You can use the timeline view as a form of workload management.

From here, you can also limit the number of tasks a team member can have at one time. But you cannot manage team members who are working on multiple projects.

Meistertasks’s Business Plan comes with a built-in time tracking tool.

Price Plans

Both Trello and Meistertask offer free plans so that you can try out their services before you buy.

Trello

Trello has the more expensive paid plans in comparison to Meistertask.

Their basic business-class plan starts from $10 per user per month when billed as an annual payment, and $12.50 per user per month when billed monthly.

However, Trello’s free plan comes with up to 10 team projects compared to just 3 team projects in Meistertask.

Meistertask

Meistertask basic plan costs $4.99 per user per month. It’s a plan geared towards individuals working on personal projects.

Their premium plan will set you back $8.25 per user per month which is better suited for teams.

The drawback with Meistertask’s free plan is that as you can only work on 3 projects at a time, it can be very limiting.
