Gutes Aufgabenmanagement

4,0 vor 5 Monaten

Kommentare: Insgesamt finde ich Zenkit modern und zeitgemäß. Es läuft schnell und auf vielen Plattformen. An der einen oder anderen Stelle fehlen noch Einstellungsoptionen.

Vorteile:

Der Vorteil liegt meiner Erfahrung nach darin, dass man Aufgaben sowohl nach Kanban als auch nach Terminen und Uhrzeiten planen kann und der Server in Deutschland steht. Das kann bspw. von Trello oder dem Microsoft Planner nicht behaupten. Die Bedienung ist deutlich besser als das Aufgabenmanagement in Outlook. Der Preis pro Mitarbeiter ist okay, aber im Vergleich zur Konkurrenz kein Schnäppchen, wenn man davon ausgeht, dass der Microsoft Planner bei vielen ohne Mehraufwand vorhanden ist.

Nachteile:

Bei dem Verteilen von Aufgaben auf die Woche werden keinerlei Labels angezeigt. Das macht diese Funktion eigentlich sinnlos, da ich in der Liste nur noch die Bezeichnung der Aufgaben sehe, aber nicht mehr die zuvor angelegten Prioritäten oder andere Felder einsehen kann. Man kann zwar den Outlook-Kalender anzeigen, aber nur in dem globalen Kalender und nicht in eigenen Collection, d. h. bei der Verteilung der Aufgaben auf die Woche und Uhrzeiten. Ich muss in diesem Fall immer parallel in Outlook nachsehen, ob es nicht zu einer Terminkollision kommt, wenn ich Aufgaben mit Zeiten versehe.Der Schieberegler mit dem Detailgrad ist unklar in seiner Funktion. Es wäre besser, wenn man auswählen könnte, was bei den Aufgaben angezeigt werden soll.

Hi! Thank you very much for your honest and detailed review! We are happy to hear your thoughts on Zenkit. I have created a feature request about the slider but would like to hear more about your thoughts on the calendar view in general. Would it be possible to reach out to us via service@zenkit.com about that? Our dev team is constantly working on making Zenkit better. Cheers, Louisa

Warum muss da ein Titel hin?

3,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Im allgemeinen ist es schon ein sehr flexibles Produkt mit einem sehr günstigen Preis. An einigen Stellen würde ich mir aber Verbesserungen wünschen.

Vorteile:

Flexibilität, multiple Views, einfache Änderbarkeit der Templates, angenehmes Design (bis auf die Farbpalette)

Nachteile:

- Kunden-Kommunikation von Axonic in engl. Sprache; das könnte ich zwar bedienen, ich habe aber oft keine Lust dazu. Es fördert für mich auch keine Nähe zum Produktion und ist für ein inländisches Unternehmen nicht zu verstehen - die Möglichkeit Subitems einzurichten ist schön, allerdings wird die Zugehörigkeit zum Vater-Item nicht angezeigt, dies wird im Handling hinderlich (Beispiel: Vater-Item 1 = Prospekt A, Vater-Item 2 = Prospekt B. Bei beiden gibt es z.B. Sub-Item "Entwurf", dann weiß man nicht, zu wem das Item gehört) - Farbführung bei den Zeiten ist m.E. nicht klar gelöst. Erwartet hätte ich, wenn ich einen Zeitpunkt X (deadline) setze und eine Erinnerungsspanne Y, dass im Falle die aktuelle Zeit hat X - Y noch nicht erreicht ist, "etwas" grün angezeigt wird, dass im Falle die aktuelle Zeit liegt innerhalb der Erinnerungsspanne "gelb" angezeigt wird und sonst "rot", also so eine Art Ampelsystem. Dies wird mit der Einfärbung der Zeit zwar so ähnlich gemacht, fällt aber nicht wirklich auf. Ein eingefärbter Kreis wäre m.E. besser - die Steuerung der Farben über Labels führt bei der Farbpalette zu z.T. unleserlichen Designs, hier muss m.E. dringend eine luftigere Version her (dieses Feature habe ich daher komplett abgeschaltet)

Lieber Stefan, vielen Dank für dein Feedback! Wir bieten aktuell Support auf Deutsch und Englisch an. Unser gesamtes Supportteam spricht beide Sprachen fließend, sodass du Fragen und Anregungen auch gerne auf Deutsch an uns versenden kannst. Bezüglich der Subitems, kannst du die Hierarchie-Ansicht verwenden, um klarer zu sehen, welches Item welchem untergeordnet ist. Es ist auch möglich, den Rang (1, 1.2, 2, 2.2, 2.2.3, etc.) anzeigen zu lassen (was in anderen Ansichten hilfreich ist). Kontaktiere uns gerne über service@zenkit.com, falls du weitere Anregungen und Feedback für uns hast. Liebe Grüße, Louisa

An sich wirklich gut - aber....

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Ich benutze derzeit zwei Systeme: MeisterTask (Pro-Version) und Zenkit (Basis), jeweils für unterschiedliche Einsatzgebiete.
- MeisterTask hat (für mich) leider die Nase vorn -> keine Ausfälle; sehr übersichtlich!
Allerdings hätte ich gerne ein paar Zenkit-Features -> variable Datenfelder; zusätzliche Ansichten; deutscher Server-Platz, Offline-Funktion

Vorteile:

Großer Vorteil ist, dass die Datenfelder auch in der Basis-Version selbst definierbar sind! Auch die Offline-Funktion finde ich sehr gut.

Nachteile:

Als Nachteil empfinde ich die Übersicht der offenen Aufgaben - die ist in MeisterTask besser gelöst (oder ich habe mich daran gewöhnt) Sehr lästig ist, dass die Kommunikation komplett englisch ist - Newsletter, Support...! Es gibt zwar Deepl... trotzdem :-(

Beautifully tracks my business processes and assets

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Zenkit allows me to track progress of client projects and embed Kanban views onto private client pages of my company's website—essentially powering my business's client portals. I also use it to track business expenses, save receipts and other documents, and control my work calendar. I love that I can access is on both my desktop and phone.

Vorteile:

Zenkit is very affordable with a sleek interface that is very intuitive. There is excellent documentation for its many uses as well as video tutorials and blogs that are invaluable to new users.

Nachteile:

The data storage limits are relatively low. Free users can store up to 1GB of file attachments, but "Plus" users ($9/mo) only receive 6GB.

Nothing's perfect but for what I need Zenkit comes close

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I have been using tools of this type for years. I've invested more time than I want to admit to using tools for planning. I'm a big mindmap user. I use it as a way to get organized when I'm feeling overwhelmed. I also use spreadsheets often as to-do lists. I also make use of kanban boards at work and in my own personal projects. And finally I have been hooked for a long time on the use of labels/tags to organize things. Zenkit is the first product I've used that allows you to do all of these things on the same data.

Vorteile:

I like that Zenkit treats my list of issues as a database and provides me many ways to look at it and manipulated it. This was the initial hook for me and it's kept me hooked. I can view my issues as a list, a kanban board, a table, a hierarchy, and a mindmap. These are just the views I use. There are others. I haven't used the Gantt chart or the wiki views yet. All of the good planning tools have the same basic fields -e.g. Title, description, the ability to leave notes and to attach things. It's this ability to turn my issues list on it's side so-to-speak and explore it that is amazing. It keeps my from getting overwhelmed by the details and lost in the forest. The other thing I like most about this software is how flexible it is with the fields. For example each of my workspaces has what I call an anchor collection. I was able to add a custom field in each of my issues that allows me to link any one of the other issues in a workspace back to its anchor. I use this anchor as a way to collect information that anchors all of the issues to it. Sounds like a confusing workflow? The workflow isn't the point - it turns out that as I have gotten to know Zenkit I'm starting to lean away from the use of anchors and create more collections instead. The truly amazing thing here is that I had a low barrier to getting productive with Zenkit. I was able to morph the product to my workflow to get started. It didn't enforce "a way of thinking" on me.

Nachteile:

The user interface took a bit of getting used to. Your issues can become cluttered as you add more custom fields. I'm still getting used to how the filters work as well.

Using Zenkit for Research Projects

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall experience: fantastic. I've been using it as my primary platform for organizing/managing projects for a couple of years now. Haven't found anything that good yet.

Vorteile:

Zenkit interface is highly configurable, which makes it ideal to collaborate with team members with different technical backgrounds. One of the most amazing characteristics though is that any data can be relational - pretty much like in a RDB - and you can create your own data structures to organize yourself as you prefer.

Nachteile:

The mindmap representation is a bit different of what one's used to find in mindmapping-related software, but this seems to be mostly due to web components limitations.

Vorteile:

The standard views replace any kanban board out there, the other views add a lot more.

Kommentare: Excellent experience with customer service. The only glitch was a small one when I upgraded my plan, but they helped me figure out a way around it. I love that they continue to develop the software instead of allowing it to remain stagnant.

Vorteile:

I like that our team can see our plans and data in a variety of different formats, as each person has a different work style - some prefer tables, some Kanban, some Gantt. Everyone can get what they want and need.

Nachteile:

Overall, the biggest challenge is not the software itself but getting our team to use it effectively and wholly. But that's an issue with every software implementation.

Great potential - in the right hands, could be your one tool for complete project management

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

I found this software when searching for a simple web-based relational database to be shared between me and another academic researcher, we need to organize some research data for a digital humanities project. It meets that need, however, it's also much deeper than that. It has project management features (Kanban, Agile, simple checklists), calendars, basically a one-stop-shop for running a project, including hosting simple database needs (like an inventory), which I have never seen offered in any other project management app. It also has free, fully featured iOS apps, which I have really enjoyed using. I have never been able to access my database on my phone before! (Also an Android app, but I haven't used it.) A lot of bang for the buck here, and free to use at small levels!

Nachteile:

It's ambitious and heavily featured, but probably due to that, still buggy. I have yet to get my imported research database fully working, although I've built a sample database from scratch that works. However, customer service is very responsive (especially considering I am not a paying customer yet) and have been upfront with the problems and their time line in correcting them, so I'm going to stick it out with them for a while longer.

Easy to use, lucid, versatile and flexible

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Vorteile:

With Zenkit you can define different Collections and Teams for different purposes and adjust them precisely to their corresponding purpose. In every collection, you can design items exactly as you need them using different custom fields such as labels, dates, links, attachments. This allows usage of Zenkit for customer tables, scrum boards, simple to-do lists and much more. Different views (Kanban, table, ...) and filters allow for detailed control over your collections.

Nachteile:

Sometimes, Zenkit is not able to save local changes on the server and you lose some of the applied changes. Linking items of different collections is unnecessarily complicated.

Our GQueues, Wunderlist & Trello Replacement.

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: We were a big wunderlist user and stopped as soon as we got wind that Microsoft was probably going to kill it. We tried Trello and had been using Gqueues and always been using Slack. Slack by default became the main collaboration tool. Downfall with Slack is QC is a little tough and very expensive depending on how your team is set-up. Zenkit makes it a lot easier to see where we have been and where we are going.

Vorteile:

One of the best things is that both Windows/Desktop and Android are very close for UI. I also like that the same data can be looked as a List, Kanban Card (which is how we use it most) to making mindmaps, Calendar and Table. That helps for planning as well as looking at history. The 2-way Google calendar sync works well, both easy to set up and how events in Calendar show up in Zenkit The biggest thing I like is the checklist inside a Kanban Card and the "Done" that has both a check dot and also a checkmark. That allows for see a two level completion process.

Nachteile:

It is a little quirky and setting time for example requires a little getting used to. If one's end date gets before start as you modify it will not save even if after corrected until you clear the end date and start over. After awhile you get in the habit of clearing the end date. I do miss from Trello how a checklist item can be made into a Kanban Card by a click. Had a few instances where syncing seems to lag. This is most noticeable when you are using the desktop app in windows and have it opened in a browser like Chrome. Desktop does not appear to always update on its own.

Zenkit's different views on my tasks help me get stuff done

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Typically going from ideation or task breakdown through to execution. I would have started with a mindmap in freemind, then cut and pasted into Trello, but it's one way - changes in Trello are then not reflected in Freemind. Using Zenkit lets me easily flip views, I didn't re-key and the data in both views is identical.
I use it to plan my holidays too :-)

Vorteile:

Very flexible. The different views over the same data really sold it for me. I can brainstorm with a mind map, work on individual tasks on a Kanban board, use a grid for mass maintenance, all over the same data with much less setup overhead than something like Notion. I even use it to plan my holidays

Nachteile:

Most of my "leasts" have been addressed. I was frustrated initially with the lack of an API, but they were just prioritising development and this is now released. The mind-mapping took a bit of getting used to compared to say, FreeMind, but not having to re-key anything going from Brainstorm to Kanban made it worthwhile.

Powerful and on the rise

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Very positive, I work with zenkit nearly two years and it helped me a lot in structuring my life and work.

Vorteile:

As a PhD Candidate I have to manage different Projects, Students, Presentations etc. each with different time horizons and most on my own. I really like the kanban and hierarchy mode to structure my overall projects (collection) and its different smaller tasks within. Also I keep track of “one liners” (simple, one step task with low priority, but rising urgency). Zenkit allow me to keep an overview of what I have to do and done already for each project. I recommend the to-do add-in and each task should have due date.

Nachteile:

With the new zenkit to do software it should be more easy to track your daily and weekly tasks for each project, by integrating the collections into the to do software. Yet this feature does not work properly. Nevertheless the support I very good and helpful.

Clean, beautiful, and minimal UI. Excellent user experience.

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Structure, organization, and a beautiful interface and user experience.

Vorteile:

I love how simple it is to use Zenkit. A lot of project management software often times have a lot of features and an over-complicated user interface. A lot of the time I find myself clicking aimlessly just to accomplish a simple task. What I love about Zenkit is it's simplicity, its ease in creating projects, to-do's within said project, linking to-do's to other projects, too, and having it all stored in an easily accessible sidebar, without any clutter. It gets straight to the point.

Nachteile:

Zenkit is a webapp, and as such, is amazing at storing all your projects and to-do's online, so if you need to access them from another computer, you can do so. This is always a plus, but an app would be very helpful, too. In those times of disconnecting from the internet or having a website blocker on my browser for productivity, having access to the site without having to tinker too much with my blocking app would be great.

Overall really good experience. I like that you can change views. No mobile app yet, but webapp good

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: For a student, the ability to organize some of my private projects for free. As mentioned in the review, the main feature that convinced me to try this app was the fact that you can change the views of your data (kanban, list, mind-map) and display as little or as much information pro item that you need. I haven't tried the collaboration features yet but the few times I needed to share something with a fellow student it worked just fine. Main benefit is just an easy way to organize and have a controlled overview of some of my projects. Also, markdown support is a must for me, for compatibility to other apps.

Vorteile:

The ability to change views of the information you input. For some thoughts I like lists, for others mind-maps are more appropriate, so I like to have the ability to change that on the fly without much hassle if I need to. It works just as expected. I like the ability to add your own fields to the cards and that everything is searchable. What I also appreciate is that you can choose how much detailed information the elements should have. This always depends on the use case I am working on, so I like that option. The app is responsive and snappy. Also, markdown & html support ! Customization is also all quite nice. Errors patches are deployed quickly and support is responsive.

Nachteile:

Sometimes it's a little buggy, but not in work-stopping ways. One time the "Add Item" on the kanban view was below the kanban-cards so I couldn't reach it. However I could still use the "+" button and the error disappeared after a few days. Other than that, there have a been just a couple of times where the site was down, but after a while it worked again. Integrations using Zapier are still not that advanced (altough I don't if the developers can do anything about that). Anxiously waiting for the Android App.

Hi Diego, Thank you so much for your detailed review, we really appreciate the feedback! We're working on improving the stability and should have a solution soon.

The best Kanban tool, but not only!

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: I use Zenkit everyday to manage the projects I'm working on (website development mainly). I can see at a glance what I have to do everyday and can also track time for each task, thanks to custom fields!

Vorteile:

What I like the most with Zenkit is the ability to customize a board to your needs. The most interesting features to me are custom fields. If you use Zenkit as a project management tool, you can add fields for "estimated time" and "time spent" for every task. It combines very well with the "Views" feature. You don't have to stick with the Kanban view and can choose between Kanban, task list, table, calendar (useful with due dates on tasks) and even mind maps.

Nachteile:

The free version of Zenkit may be enough to test the product, but once you have more than 5 members in your team, you have to upgrade your account to a premium plan. Anyway, once you'll discover Zenkit, you may want to support the team behind this awesome product!

Finally found what I needed!

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: A very easy way to organise my tasks and projects of my PhD project.

Vorteile:

It is an extremely versatile product, as I can change to my calendar, list of tasks, Kanban, ... with just one click! New features have been added since I first started using it, and I love it more and more. Additionally, as I use it just for me personal, it is free! I currently use it for organising my tasks related to my PhD, as I am working on different projects at the same time. I tried using Asana and Trello as well, but they are not as versatile as Zenkit!

Nachteile:

The recent addition of the Mind Map is not exactly as I would want it. I would like to add different mind maps to one project, but all nodes should be linked to each other, which makes it impossible to create multiple mind maps. Also, the root I would make, would be the name of my project, and I find it annoying that it would show up in my Kanban/lists. Anyway, this is still a very small annoyance, and I do not use the mind map anyway.

A great alternative

Kommentare: See above

Vorteile:

Zenkit combines where other software needs to be linked.it is not only an organizational tool and group task planner but can also handle parts of a can and inventory. Being very customizable with lots of features it has its pitfalls and you get fast to its limitations when you want to use it outside its core. Calendar functionality, navigation with mouse, screen adaption etc. gets quickly to a point where you feel there is missing something. If you are willing to accept that, you can run a small business just off Zenkit

Nachteile:

Included above, it gets quickly to limitations outside the task management functions

zenkit is the perfect tool to work in a transparent and organized way

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: In the startup that we are creating we use zenkit to organize our tasks according to the objectives set and the times available to each person. This also makes it easier for us to work remotely without having to organize regular meetings. Everyone knows what to do in each 2-week sprint and can see the progress of the project. It also helps us to detect where there are problems, attending to cards that are abandoned for a while, and allows us to react and modify the strategy when necessary.

Vorteile:

I find it very intuitive, easy to use and often updated by adding new features

Nachteile:

so far I haven't detected any crucial problems. Normally when I haven't been able to do something it's because I didn't know the functionality and finally trying it I've achieved it.
