Acunote – Agile Project Management Tool

This is just a short little post about a task management tool I’ve been using for roughly a couple of years now. It’s called Acunote (http://www.acunote.com) and I’ve come to love it. I use it as a task management tool at the moment but in the past I’ve used it as a project management tool and a team management tool.

Acunote is based on the agile scrum system, and as such it allows you to create “sprints”. In your sprints you create tasks (in the real world these would be derived from user stories). You can assign tasks to individuals, estimate them, set a priority and continually update this information.

As you can see, acunote will work out a burn-down chart for you as you go along (which you can view by user, multi-user or team), and will give predictions on whether you’re going to hit your targets etc. It also allows you to keep a backlog, and to add a bunch of tasks from you backlog into a new sprint is as simple as a click of a button.

All in all I’ve found it to be fantastic, and I couldn’t imagine not using it now. I highly recommend taking a look at it.

    This is one of the most useful things I came across in mBlox and missing it ever since you left.
