DropTask is a free online project and task management service. Unlike all the other services of this type that we have talked about before, DropTask allows you to visually play around with projects and tasks using bubbles. Each new task will be added to the project worksheet as a bubble. Inside the bubble text of what the task is about can be typed and after you’re done, the entire project worksheet can be shared with your friends.
Example of how a project worksheet looks with several tasks added to it can be seen on the screenshot given below.
Two bubbles that you can see in the larger light yellow bubble are tasks. The larger bubbles can be used in order to group tasks. All of these things are done using your mouse, by dragging the bubbles from the menus and then organizing them on the worksheet. Clicking on one of those tasks will allow you to setup all the important info that task is supposed to have, like description, due date, workers who are assigned to it and so on. Key features of DropTask – free online project and task management service are:
- Web based – create projects and assign work online via web browser
- Visual task management – create everything using mouse/drag&drop
- Task grouping – tasks can be created and grouped using bubbles
- Activity tracker – all the changes made to projects are logged
- Create unlimited number of projects and tasks on the project worksheet

Project and task management usually has complex interfaces, where you need to go through a lot of different menus in order to do whatever it is that you wanted to do. With DropTask you basically only need to drag and drop the tasks onto the worksheet, that from where the name of this free service comes from. Here’s a few tips to help you get started.
