    Pros
    I have many aspects and areas of my life; Sunsama helps me to manage all of them. The interface is clean and easy to use; I like the "Kanban for your life" philosophy that the team has going.

    It doesn't take a super user to figure out how to get it up and running. Also, the customer service has been fantastic.

    There are many aspects that I love about this productivity tool. It has a great interface and a relatively low learning curve.

    Cons
    I guess they're assuming that it's no longer important, but that just doesn't work for me because I'm worried I'll forget about it entirely (which has happened a few times).

    My biggest problem with the software is the cost.

    Right now, there isn't a native iOS or Android app. In order for mobile functionality you need to use it in-browser, which is hit or miss in terms of responsiveness.

    Great productivity tool with a nice daily workflow

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    I've tried nearly every productivity/task management tool out there, including (but not limited to) Trello, Todoist, ClickUp, Nirvana, Any.do, Asana, Wrike, and Quire. While many of these are solid tools, they didn't have what I'd call "the sticky factor". Sunsama has a workflow that works very well for me with a morning routine that helps me to plan my day and gives me vision focused on the day, but sightlines into the week as well. It actively helps me to maximize efficiency without overloading my day. The integration with Google Calendar is seamless and, together, I can manage my day with less stress and don't have to worry that things are getting left by the wayside.

    Pros

    Beyond the individual features, the daily workflow is really what sets Sunsama apart from other productivity tools (and I've tried most of them out there). The tool is built around setting up your day in the morning and closing out your day in the evening, and it works very well (at least for me).

    Cons

    While their integrations work well, I would love a browser extension that would let me add a page as a task (or an email from within my email platform, but they have an integration that pulls emails into Sunsama to accomplish that).

    Finally, a tool that helped me manage my task backlog and better prioritize urgent & important tasks

    Reviewed 8 months ago

    Great. So good, that I'm actually considering paying the $20/month fee for it after my free trial.

    Pros

    Sunsama is the best solution that I’ve tried so far in terms of time management, to-do’s, calendar, note-taking, etc. It’s helped me manage my task backlog and better prioritize urgent and important tasks. Very easy to use and a great on-boarding & integration setup experience. I'm still using it consistently after 2 weeks, so that's saying something!

    Cons

    I wish there was a better email integration that detected follow-ups and tasks. -- Even if it's similar to the gmail follow-up feature. My day can easily get derailed by my inbox and new tasks that come up from it.

    Vendor response

    Hi Erin! Thank you for the review. Glad you love the prioritization aspect. We're focused on helping people work sustainably instead of making them do as much as possible - that's a recipe for burnout. Glad to have you as a user :)

    Solid, with some key areas for improvement

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    The strength of Sunsama's task management platform outweighs the struggles we've had with their collaborative work environment. I'd definitely recommend for those looking for a great way to manage and assign tasks both individually and across a team.

    Pros

    Sunsama makes it incredibly easy to manage your tasks. Prior to adopting Sunsama, I was relying on many, many, MANY handwritten to-do lists that quickly became out of date and confusing as new tasks were added and old tasks were updated with new information. With Sunsama, everything is in one place and you can constantly add new info and edit the scope of the tasks. To be honest, I don't know how -- and if -- I can go back to managing tasks without Sunsama.

    Cons

    Sunsama needs to improve their real-time collaborative environments. Our team uses Sunsama to manage meetings--specifically our twice-weekly scrum meetings that typically have long agendas. When Sunsama is at its peak performance, it's great -- it allows you to collaborative add and edit agenda items and assign actions items. That said, Sunsama isn't always at its best in this regard. The meeting page reloads regularly; sometimes content is lost; other times collaborators can't see newly added information or can't add info themselves. It's certainly gotten better -- and our struggles have become less frequent -- but there's still room for improvement.

    Vendor response

    Hi William, Thank you for your review and feedback for Sunsama! As you noted, we're working on making it more robust and will continue to do so! The issues should be less frequent moving forward. Again, I really appreciate the solid review and am glad to have you and your team on Sunsama!

    Best Task List Manager Ever!

    Reviewed a month ago

    Great product, service, and price!

    Pros

    This software is brilliant! For someone who has many tasks a day, it helps to prioritize with time estimates click and move tasks on day and week and month. Its time estimate on each task and total help me estimate what I can get done on each day (above other task mgt. systems). Also allows me to click and drag to the daily schedule to fill in a time lapsing hour by hour day set up. Also has a calendar feature that shows me when things are due and my appts. Good luck trying to find that elsewhere. Brilliant!

    Cons

    Click and drag attachment would help in some cases but not necessary.

    So good I wish they had an affiliate program

    Reviewed 5 months ago

    Like most productivity apps, you spend the first few days, weeks or months working in the app every day and then it falls off. So far with sunsama, I have been using this for a month and I literally look forward to logging in, planning my day, and working through my list of activities/tasks each day to stay highly productive. It has really helped me take my day to day work management to a new level and frees my mind of trying to remember everything I need to do. I love the time tracking feature, but wished they would add some reporting other than the daily summary. again, I want to reduce the number of apps I use, not add more.

    Pros

    As a business and functional team coach, I wish they had an affiliate program so I could recommend to my clients, give them a link, and I get paid for as often as I recommend their product. I am constantly trying to hack my work life so that I can maximize my earning potential with the least amount of effort. I have found that time management and work productivity/efficiency are the two ways to achieve...

    Cons

    I wish they allowed more tasks and organization in the backlog as I want to reduce the number of apps I use and their only workaround is to use a tool like ToDo or Asana to manage a backlog of work. They have links to a mobile app, but it has never worked. A mobile app will be essential moving forward. You can't find it in the apple store. I wish they offered time reporting so I could run a monthly report on the effort I put across my various projects and clients, it would reduce the need to use another time tracking tool like Toggl.

    Vendor response

    Hey Jesse, Thank you for your review. So glad to hear you stuck with Sunsama and that it has been a game changer for you :) We now offer weekly time reporting, monthly is on our list of improvements to make. We have an affiliate program too, just reach out to me yash@sunsama.com and I'll set you up! - Yash
