Mark D.

Checkvist is totally AWESOME

2017-07-07

I never lose any tasks Fantastic for triage and management of projects, people and tasks

Pros

Tasks and priorities are always changing and Checkvist makes this SO simple. The mobile app is rapidly evolving into a fantastic progressive web app.

Cons

Global search index takes time to update More powerful filtering logic needs to be added particularly around tags.

Get all those tasks off your mind and let the program do the reminding for you.

2017-07-10

Helps me to prioritize what is necessary to get done and those things that will always be "someday" tasks.

Pros

Being able to create lists and hierarchy tasks is excellent for task management and reviewing tasks needing to be completed during a project or goal.

Cons

on the "Due" page, not having my tasks split up (or grouped) by their lists.

Response from Trirt Software


Hello Ben,

Thanks for the review. I wanted to notice that on the Due page, you can enable grouping by list in the page options (cog in the toolbar). There is also an option to enable context view, read more in this blog post: https://goo.gl/m3XXfA

From all the apps I've tried for task and project management, Checkvist is by far the best!

2017-07-26

My productivity has increased significantly since I started using Checkvist, which is really due to how easy it has been to learn the app, so I can focus on getting stuff done

Pros

Especially useful is the progress counter which shows how much of a task is completed.

Cons

There is no native mobile app, even though there is a mobile version of the website.

Well/cleanly designed, feature rich, intuitive and efficient UI.

2017-07-07

Helps me organize important information, track projects, and even creative writing and DMing for RPGs.

Pros

It lets me get the ideas in my head down quickly and without frustration and organized effectively so that when I review it I can find what I need quickly and easily, even after I have collected a lot of information.

Cons

The mobile app is in development and not as feature rich, BUT the dev has consistently improved it.

Checkvist is my go to for projects and to do lists

2017-08-05

Not just a bunch of to do lists, but one project list that captures all the things that need to be done in an easy to organize format and interface.

Pros

I couldn't find another online tool that would let me create to do lists in an outline format.

Cons

I would love a stand-alone app for checkvist (developed by checkvist instead of a random third party).

Checkvist is simply the best task management program around.

2017-07-07

It has helped me not only organize my daily todo's, but also gives me the ability to keep lists of interesting things I like to track long term.

Pros

The unlimited hierarchical lists + all the keyboard shortcuts. No other product even comes close to being this flexible.

Cons

it solves all of my needs for a task management software.

An Easy Way to Create Order in Your Life

2020-09-21

I am fond of this beautiful, almost ideal to-do-lists design. It is spectacular that there is a list of keyboard shortcuts which looks so stylish in this nerdy depicting.

Pros

It is an affordable, user-friendly, responsive, and trustworthy solution to prioritize things in your life, keep things in order and manage your time wisely.

Cons

As for the logo: it looks great as a tab or a bookmark in Chromium browser, but looks funny as the brand name in the top left corner of the interface. Just some kind of psychological trigger.

Phenomenal keyboard driven outliner / todo list

2017-07-09

It has helped me to improve my organisation. It is also a great app for getting your thoughts down on paper and general brainstorming.

Pros

So, as well as using it to manage task, you can use it plan talks, or writing assignments.

Cons

It would be great if the mobile app was slightly more developed.

Give fan of the features and keyboard shortcuts!

2017-07-07

Pros

The ability to easily move and nest tasks, the keyboard shortcuts and the prioritization features.

Cons

I'd like to be able to put attachments in notes and.... as you know... the mobile app is a good start, but lacks parity with the web.

A simple, straightforward checklisting program

2018-06-05

Pros

I used this program for a large freelance client to keep track of our tasks, and it was super-simple and straightforward.

Cons

I guess more features would be fine, but it's nice to have it so simple and easy to use.

Having a mobile version too is handy.

AWESOME!!!

2017-07-30

Very fast, clean, organized placement of my thoughts and information.

Pros

Also, the UI isn't laggy/unresponsive at any time at all.

Cons

Hard to point out, but this is the only backdrop: The auto-listing feature. It doesn't have to be itemize first, and then ask user for choice.

Outline Your Work, Your Life, and Your Life's Work

2017-07-13

As a pastor of a parish with a large day care program, I am constantly dealing with tasks, projects, plans, preaching, writing, and other responsibilities.

Pros

Checkvist provides an incredibly flexible and full featured way to create an outline of what needs to be achieved, accomplished, what needs to get done to fulfill the many plans and commitments of your work and your life.

Cons

It is my hope that they will continue in their plans to develop a dedicated application, and that they will continue to work on improving the user experience by further developing the program interface.

Been using CheckVist daily for 3 years. Amazing customer support! It just keeps getting better.

2017-07-06

Better organization, improved scheduling. I now know where to find my information.

Pros

Excellent keyboard shortcuts. All items in a list are easily rearranged. The recurring due date functionality is invaluable. Web access allows me to use it at home and at work - which was a problem with my previous solution. I don't know how I lived without it.

Cons

The mobile app is not as mature as the web app.

Checkvist helps me organize all of my thoughts in one place and keep them super organized.

2017-07-06

Pros

Having unlimited lists and sub lists also makes it easy for me to give details to my thoughts and projects.

Cons

I wish there was a better way to organize things visually (colors, pictures). It can just be a lot to look at if it is just tons of words on a screen.

My go to outliner

2017-07-10

I got organized the way I wanted: with a simple, textbased system instead of heavy, slow big software that 's too expensive.

Pros

- very natural use (shortcuts, movements, ...) - fast! - looks simple but houses a boatload of functionality - custom css to make it look the way you like it

Cons

- not very good mobile support (might change with the PWA implementation?)

My favourite feature is its support for keyboard shortcuts.

I love this app. It is one of my must-have tools for work and personal projects.

2017-07-15

Pros

Keyboard driven, simplicity, markdown syntax support, infinite depth of tree, focus on selected sub-trees, API and many more.

Cons

Currently, there is no real mobile app. It should also work better when internet connection is unstable.

Simple to get others to use. Has lots of functionality if you decide to dive deep but also works as a simple list manager.

Checkvist really help in increasing the productivity.

2017-07-12

It helps me organize and tell me what I should focus on next. Great tool.

Pros

It has very simple interface, nothing fancy which takes space of your screen and due to this it feels very raw which is really good for me.

Cons

So, there is a learning curve but if you want something great, you have to spend some time in learning it.

As simple working with Pen & Paper and all the benefits of a great cloud based app

2017-07-10

I use this software daily as my "Getting Things Done" system. I keeps me organized in way that I have not been able to replicate with dozens of other productivity websites / software solutions. I have tried all the major players in the productivity space and many of the upcoming contenders.

Pros

It has a simple and natural interface that is very easy to use.

Cons

Mobile App needs refinement so that users can have an experience similar to the "full site" version.
