Casual

Visual online project management for non-professional PMs

4.82/5 (33 reviews)

Casual overview

Casual is a task and project management software that uses visual charts to plan the processes related to projects. By applying causal relationships to tasks, Casual helps define the order of execution for each task in a project. Casual can be used to plan projects that involve multiple people and departments by firstly creating project milestones, then defining the workflow and order in which these tasks need to be completed and assigning their due dates.

Using Causal you can assign each of these tasks to the relevant individuals. After creating each milestone in a project, Casual allows you to define more detailed processes within each task, called sub-processes. Workflows can also be defined for these sub-processes. The tasks can be viewed as a list or as a visual graph. When the project is started each team member receives their list of tasks in their order of execution. All project are saved for a visual understanding of project steps and processes, and these processes can be used again for planning future projects.

Casual helps the Starfinder Foundation do what it does best - help Philly youth succeed

Review Source: GetApp

Starfinder Foundation is a nonprofit, sports-based youth development organization dedicated to inspiring young people from underserved communities to achieve success both on and off the field. Soccer is the hook: success in school, in the community, and in the pursuit of higher education is the goal. Founded in 2002, Starfinder was created to engage young people in great soccer programs that build their athletic skills while providing them with the kind of support – adult mentoring, health education, academic assistance, and leadership development – that helps them build a foundation for long-term success in their lives. Starfinder currently serves over 400 children and teens annually through after-school and summer programs at its facility in Manayunk and at community partner sites throughout the city. Starfinder was really in need of a tool to help us manage our marquee events (Starfinder Cup, Senior Leader Graduation and Cocktails with a Kick). As you can imagine, when you have a small staff (6 full-time employees) managing program and fundraising together means you have to be as efficient as you can when big events are added to the mix. Casual allows us to visually scope out our event management, add timelines, and assign responsibilities. The emails that automatically update staff every day on the critical tasks and dates that are looming, makes it easy to integrate our everyday work on behalf of kids with the project work needed to execute a successful event as well.The charm of the product is its simplicity and intuitive easy-to-use, easy-to-figure-out interface. Starfinder needed a tool that everyone could use and understand organically, while also providing us with the robustness of features that would make teamwork and collaboration possible; such as, easy to download project plans, task notifications via email, and the ability to visualize the project as a visual mapping.

Casual is for Academic Research Teams, too!

Casual is perfect for academic research teams needing to coordinate complex projects with multiple streams of activity and deadlines, but without the extensive project management resources of a corporate team. The interface is clean and crisp, very easy to navigate, and effective. Having a tool that works for you rather than the other way around frees up the research team to do what it does best ;-)

It helps in managing my offshore team.The best thing I like is the layout for tasks. You can set a start date and end date and also assign an executor to a task. It helps you to manage tasks between small teams. You can also change the status once a step has been completed. I use this tool for tasks management only and it has all the features which are required to manage the tasks. It is very helpful when you are with offshore teams.

Casual PM - Project Management At It's Most Finest

Review Source: GetApp

I've been looking for a product management solution that would integrate within my workflow for sometime. All of them lacked something or the other. Casual has everything and more. Also, because I need to check certain things when away from my computer, the iOS app makes Casual stand out from the crowd, as it allows an instant check to be done, without having to spend the time logging into a non-optimised web app. This has now transformed my working life. I'm much more productive than before, am able to send workflow's and deadlines to collaborators in an easily digestible flow diagram form, and now genuinely have a competitive advantage.Ease of use, iOS App, ability to generate flow diagram PDF's and url's on the fly, regular updates.

I like how I can easily set dependencies between tasks and have my colleagues (or me) informed when a task is available for execution. Visual aspect is also clear to know where we are.
