  • Your employees' worst nightmare

    My company switched from BaseCamp to Deskaway six months ago and it has been a major hassle every week to maintain. When we are assigned to do something, my co-workers and I have to create a "Milestone", then a "Task List" then a "Task." Pretty much, we have to enter an assignment THREE TIMES to log it. Also, the calendar doesn't show you when a task starts, it only shows when it's due, something BaseCamp did. When my boss sent issues to me, I did not receive emails which the system is suppose to do, plus they did not show up on my calendar nor on my home screen. I almost lost my job because of this. I've tried using shortcuts to reduce the time I spend each week entering tasks in the 8 projects I'm in charge of, however they did not meet my supervisors' standards, so I'm stuck wasting 2 hours every week entering the same tasks every single time. The shortcut I used was a "recurring task." This is might be a good tool for management, however your employees will absolutely hate it and you in turn.

    Easy to use project manegemnet app with great features

    Very easy to set-up and to use. Great adoptions from all users in the team. Intuitive way to it structure projects with milestones, task lists and tasks. Have used it for 20+ users teams and it scales well. It has significantly reduced the volume of useless emails flying around.

    Pros : Task Lists, Calendars, Work Reports and Messaging are great features great support service very active support forum

    Cons : Takes a bit of time to get used to the UI

  • For a really simple app, DeskAway actually manages to get a lot of things done. The pricing isn’t so bad either. Each price range caters to successively larger teams. So if you are looking for a simple yet really complete project management tool, you may want to check out the Professional plan of DeskAway. For simpler projects, you can stay with the free version and still boost your productivity.

  • Upon learning of DeskAway I thought, "What a nice idea, but I do not have the time to learn something new." To my surprise, DeskAway is very simple to understand and implement. Within a matter of an hour, I was completely set up, had three projects entered and was ready to go. Once you find that you like the product, you can upgrade at any time. The charges for the product are reasonable for what it offers. There are several subscription plans to fit your project needs.

  • A small business that needs a better way to manage a project can appreciate DeskAway. There is some cost involved, but the cheapest plan is quite affordable. As long as the allotted project quantities and storage space is sufficient to fit the team’s needs, then they can easily work DeskAway into their project budget.

  • DeskAway is a cloud-based project collaboration software that provides teams of any size a single online location for organizing, managing, and tracking their tasks and projects. This software-as-a-service (SaaS) is aptly named to describe the enabling power and assurance that work can continue even when people are away from their desks. It is a simple, powerful, and affordable subscription-based online service with task and time tracking, collaboration, and reporting functionality.

    Good? Yes. Rough? Yes. We think that Deskaway would really have potential to be back and be a really good option if they worked on:

    • Having a revamp of Deskaway's interface.
    • Adding more AJAX to their interface when it makes sense to do so.

    With an established customer base, they should have the knowledge, the ability and the time to do that!
