What's new in iTaskX

Version 5.0.2:

iTaskX 5 brings a refined new design that gives you even more of the things you love about iTaskX. But it’s not just about how much better the interface looks. It’s also about how much better it works. In addition to the new interface which fits perfectly to macOS Big Sur and new features, iTaskX 5 now also exploits the full performance potential of the new Macs with Apple Silicon.

Discover the possibilities.
Agile project management methods:
  • Manage agile projects using simple, visual task boards that support Kanban, or custom workflows. Choose whatever methodology makes sense for your project: agile, waterfall, or hybrid.
The use of agile project management methods in iTaskX Pro has many advantages:
Flexibility

Reduction of wasted work / wasted time

Increased productivity

Team members' ability to focus

Reworked Styles and format options:
  • All format functions in one place. With a few clicks, you can format your tasks, resources or your whole schedule.
  • The new styles and format options save time and increase your productivity.
  • Starting with iTaskX 4.5 you can also adjust the appearance of links to your needs.
Manually scheduled tasks:
  • iTaskX has traditionally been its ability to recalculate task schedules when you change the project start date or a change to one task’s schedule affects one or more linked tasks. This powerful behavior saves you from having to rethink and reenter dates to rescheduled tasks throughout the project.
  • But flip sides to the benefits of automation always exist, and in the case of project scheduling, automatic scheduling can lead to unwanted schedule changes based on software behavior and not on human expertise.
  • To retain the helpful aspects of automation that make scheduling less time-consuming while allowing project managers to retain schedule control when needed, iTaskX allows user-controlled scheduling.
  • If you want to use this behavior by default for new tasks, you can specify this in your project options.
New resource management:
  • Using the new resources inspector in iTaskX makes handling resources a breeze - you can create, edit and assign resources in one place. In the brand new iTaskX Resource Inspector, it does not matter if you want to assign resources to a single task or multiple tasks at once.
  • To assign a resource, simply select a task and enter the units or cost in the field right beside the resource name. It can't be easier!
Columns, Columns, Columns…:
  • iTaskX now gives you access to over 275 different task columns and 230 freely configurable resource columns for all situations.
  • For example, in addition to the existing Notes column, iTaskX now offers 30 individually configurable text columns.
  • And best of all, you can exchange all these new columns with Microsoft Project!
  • Thus, iTaskX offers the most comprehensive support for Microsoft Project among all project management solutions available for macOS.

Honestly - this thing is simply awesome! The only thing I would love to see better is that by importing from a mindmap (opml) it would also already take the same hierarchy as the mindmap naturally has... Other than that... the only other thing I could think of to improve would be to have a iOS Version syncing via iCloud. But else I have to say: I have had many of these apps including MS Project and Merlin, but iTaskX is the only one I really use. It is really easy to understand and it is greatly documented. Really awesome app! Thx.

After the switch to a Mac, the learning curve for a former MS Project users was very low. The only thing i miss are some WBS setting but ll in all I can only agree. Works like Project - feels like Mac - Great :-)

A bit disappointed, nice start but lacking especially with basic, essential functionality.... iTaskX cannot SORT TASKS BY START DATE, no any other table columns. I bought it thinking this is basic feature, so be sure to thoroughly test before spending $115 bucks.

I have been using the iTaskX since version 2.6. I use it most of the time now. I seldom fire up MS project 2010. It's workflow is very easy to start a project with a step by step wizard type form you can use to get the basics of your project recorded. The older versions of iTaskX would read and write to MS Project without issue as long as you saved it as an xml version for import into the MS Project 2007 and 2010 versions. This new version does native file extension exports, for everything up to MS Project 2012. Since I stay on the bleeding edge of the OS X operating system, I have had small problems with 3rd party software. Each time I have had a question for the iTaskX team they come back with a real solution in a fast (read non-critical path) reply. I am very comfortable with MS project in all its forms but I use this Project Management Software the most of all PMP software we own. I also tried Omniplan for a while. I did not consider it in my final purchase for several reasons one was its interoperability with MS Project. iTaskX wins hands down. For the future: I am waiting on two functions that would make me lead our project team completely away from MS Project; 1. The WBS code that can be a custom coded (I use CSA codes for tasks) and the report for the project that is more document or export to pages /Word for a friendlier format than a grid.

We purchases iTaskX about 6 months ago, and I've used it in several applications. The software is well-suited to relatively simple projects of a few hundred tasks and a dozen resources. The input is straightforward, and there's ample help. There are a few annoyances (like why is there a 7% increase in resource costs if input as $$/year instead of $$/mo or $$/hr?) that you have to work around, but the iTaskX is very serviceable. If your project is complex, however, the software is not up to the demands. I tried to cost out the annual strategic plan for a small firm of 10 employees. It was a mess. You can't use common resource lists, or separate projects into sub-projects/master project, and reporting features are very limited. Cutting and pasting tasks across sheets drops the resource assignments, and so each task has to be assigned by hand in a rather tedious manual process. I'm ashamed to say I had to get VMWare and use MS Project. And even then, the importing of iTaskX xml files into MS Project was not seamless, as claimed. Overall, iTaskX is fine for small projects, but is not yet up to the task of complex projects.

I love this program. It is the only mac PM software that comes close to MS Project functionality. Eye candy aside, I belive this software has the potential to completely replace MS Project for small and large projects. Although it mimics MS Project in its features, it tries to be more intuitive and to the point. I would consider it a serious contender once I can view multiple views of the same project. Have you tried leveling your resources using the Resouce Usage sheet. Not gonna happen easily. detailed gant chart view below the Resource Usage sheet would definitely help. There are a few small things here and there but overall, I strongly recommend this software to anyone who wants to shed MS Windows and move to a 100% Mac platform. Oh.. and before I forget, the ability to add graphics to the gant chart is actually a very useful feature (great for adding some aids in organizing or annotating a large project gantt.

I've tried the demo version and decided to place the order just now. In the paste 6 hours, I've send 3 emails (and got replies for all of them) regarding some localization issues (Chinese) and got some solid response from the tech support. Their answer were quite good. I like the feature that user can set their own 'Views' and be able to see it with a click of mouse immediately. The 'Page Layout view' is got some nice touch such as the '%' of the output so user can try to size up/down the document to fit in the final output. Few things I would like to see in the future release: 1. Rename of the column; so I can shorten the column heading during printout when necessary. 2. Set the custom Views for specific project only 3. Few more bar styles; at the moment, there seems to be the rectangle type only. 4. Template; I don't know if there are any template to download from? (maybe someone can help me out here) Overall, this is a nice s/w. I came from the Windows world and I am quite happy to find this PM software on the Mac. This is definetely one of the good ones for the Mac plateform. Now the only software I lack now is a good spreadsheet (I use Excel) and most important, a good outliner.

Interesting new addition to task/project management application. Very feature rich compared to the other eye candy applications that we are starting to see... Don't get me wrong, the interface is nice on this app and so far impress with it response. Did have an issue accessing my "Resources" from the address book, but it still is in beta stage. As for the cost, pretty far... once all of the bugs are worked out. Could be a little cheaper for single user though. Regards, Charles
