Mail to project

Create tasks and post comments directly from your email. Don’t feel like leaving your inbox to log in to Active Collab? Not a problem:

  • When you get an email notification, just send a reply to post a comment.
  • Send or forward emails to a project email address to create tasks.

Mail to project

Column view

See your tasks as cards on a Kanban board and move them across columns. Perfect for spotting bottlenecks. Agile workflows will now feel natural with task lists like “Backlog”, “In Progress”, “Done”, etc. Learn in our free ebook how powerful this feature can be and what you can do with it.

Task start dates

Tasks can now have a start date. Plan projects with greater precision and communicate the start date with your team, in addition to due date. They’ll automatically appear on the timeline as well.
