No crime movie is complete without an evidence board.

You know it: the corkboard that a detective, faced with some impossible deadline, agonizes over. Photographs, news clippings, and frantically scrawled notes are linked together with crisscrossing threads of string. It alone holds all the key information to crack the case.

When you’re working on a big project—or lots of them at once—it can help to have a similar planning board to drive your own tasks to completion. But don’t think old-school; think digital.

Or better yet, think MeisterTask. This online task management tool allows users to create and organize projects, collaborate with team members, and build a virtual timeline of assignments. In a nutshell, it’s an easy way to cut through the clutter and chaos of project management.

For starters, MeisterTask features a snazzy home dashboard—which you can customize to your heart’s content—and an intuitive platform for all your projects laid out Kanban-style. It’s fitting, as “kanban” is the Japanese word for “billboard,” the popular task management method to manage your workflow visually.

MeisterTask is built for agile collaboration, too. If you’re working with multiple people on one project, it’s easy to give and receive feedback in real-time. You can set clear goals by assigning deadlines, use time tracking to log everybody’s progress, make comments, and tag each other on tasks.

But where MeisterTask really stands out are the project features. You can view everybody’s projects on a timeline, filter them by priority, establish task limits, and set up certain tasks as recurring, which comes in handy if you’re performing them on a regular basis. You can also organize your projects with as many sections as you like, and attach relevant files and images, so you don’t have to spend an age hunting through Google Drive to locate that one elusive document.

The best part? Like a detective board, you can even link tasks to one another if they’re related to the same project. (Only you can toss the string.)
