Todoist is a cross-platform task manager that has been around for a little while now, but it has recently received a feature update that makes it an extremely useful tool for families, small teams and even larger teams. Collectively known as ‘Todoist Next’, the new update features vastly improved collaboration and scheduling features.

Collaboration on to-do lists is now possible with up to 5 other Todoist users using the free service, and up to 25 other users with the premium version, currently for $USD 29 per year. This allows you to share a ‘project’ (or grouping of tasks) with other users, assigning tasks to those users and receiving notifications when tasks are changed or completed by them.

Not only does this feature let you work with other users, but it works across a number of device and cloud platforms, including Android and iOS, Windows, Mac and Chrome desktop apps, browser integrations and other cloud services like Gmail. This means that whatever the mix of your team, across desktop and mobile, you can keep your team tasks lists up to date, wherever you are.

The new scheduling feature makes it easy to plan your days by assigning tasks to a daily, weekly or monthly calendar, or even out to a year if you wish.

These new features are built on a platform that offers real time sync across all platforms, meaning that there’s no need to think of refreshing or syncing data; it just happens, and we’ve tested it: it works.

If you’re looking for a task manager for yourself, your family or a team that you work with (for example, the team behind Ausdroid could make great use of this), then Todoist is well worth considering.
