The MeisterTask team has been hard at work (mostly remotely) developing features that aim to make your work more enjoyable and productive. Let’s talk about takeaway coffee for a second. When you buy one, and it comes with a little heart or flower made out of foam, it gives you that warm fuzzy feeling, doesn’t it? It might not be worthy of a parade, but it definitely makes your coffee experience just that much more special. At MeisterTask, we’re firm believers in the difference that little things make. So we’ve released a few new features that aim to improve your productivity and enhance your experience overall. Check them out:
Reactions to comments
You now have more options when it comes to reacting to comments on tasks. Initially, it was only possible to “like” a comment. But if you’re like me, and secretly wished you had a fancy rocket to react to all those amazing comments you receive (totally true by the way), it just wasn’t possible. Great news! It is now. Choose your appropriate reaction from the five reaction icons now available, and make sure people know when you really love something vs. when you only thumbs up something.
Reactions are available on all MeisterTask plans. To access this feature, simply click on the grey smiley face icon above the comment you wish to react to — et voila!
Reply to comments
Why stop at reactions? We were on a roll! Let me say that this particular feature has helped us A LOT internally here at Meister. Really big tasks often involve quite a bit of input from quite a few people. It’s really easy for key information to be overlooked simply because it’s comment number 30 in a thread of 100 comments or for more recent comments to be taken out of context. With this new update, you are now able to reply to specific comments and the comment that you’re replying to will be quoted in your reply. Neat, right?
You can reply to comments on all MeisterTask plans. To use this feature, hover your cursor above the comment you’d like to reply to and then click on the gray speech bubble.
Many of our users asked us if we could implement a feature that would automatically create a unique number for every task created. Your wish is our command! Task IDs are now a thing. Every task created on MeisterTask comes ready with a unique ID that never changes!
Task IDs can be used for a number of things, like:
tracking a task when associating orders to a supplier to a particular task, or when documenting all tasks in a spreadsheet, simply replace the task link with the task ID and finally, use the task ID as a substitute for copying the task link into a pull request when working with Github or Bitbucket.
We’ve also made it very easy for you to copy your task’s ID — all you need to do is click on the icon to the left (highlighted in blue in the image) and done — paste it wherever you like!
Everyone can make use of Task IDs as they are available on all MeisterTask plans.
