About Casual

Casual is a task and project management software that uses visual charts to plan the processes related to projects. By applying causal relationships to tasks, Casual helps define the order of execution for each task in a project. Casual can be used to plan projects that involve multiple people and departments by firstly creating project milestones, then defining the workflow and order in which these tasks need to be completed and assigning their due dates.

Using Causal you can assign each of these tasks to the relevant individuals. After creating each milestone in a project, Casual allows you to define more detailed processes within each task, called sub-processes. Workflows can also be defined for these sub-processes. The tasks can be viewed as a list or as a visual graph. When the project is started each team member receives their list of tasks in their order of execution. All project are saved for a visual understanding of project steps and processes, and these processes can be used again for planning future projects.

    Casual helps the Starfinder Foundation do what it does best - help Philly youth succeed

    Reviewed on 2017/01/25

    Starfinder Foundation is a nonprofit, sports-based youth development organization dedicated to...

    Starfinder Foundation is a nonprofit, sports-based youth development organization dedicated to inspiring young people from underserved communities to achieve success both on and off the field. Soccer is the hook: success in school, in the community, and in the pursuit of higher education is the goal. Founded in 2002, Starfinder was created to engage young people in great soccer programs that build their athletic skills while providing them with the kind of support – adult mentoring, health education, academic assistance, and leadership development – that helps them build a foundation for long-term success in their lives. Starfinder currently serves over 400 children and teens annually through after-school and summer programs at its facility in Manayunk and at community partner sites throughout the city.

    Starfinder was really in need of a tool to help us manage our marquee events (Starfinder Cup, Senior Leader Graduation and Cocktails with a Kick). As you can imagine, when you have a small staff (6 full-time employees) managing program and fundraising together means you have to be as efficient as you can when big events are added to the mix. Casual allows us to visually scope out our event management, add timelines, and assign responsibilities. The emails that automatically update staff every day on the critical tasks and dates that are looming, makes it easy to integrate our everyday work on behalf of kids with the project work needed to execute a successful event as well.

    Pros

    The charm of the product is its simplicity and intuitive easy-to-use, easy-to-figure-out interface. Starfinder needed a tool that everyone could use and understand organically, while also providing us with the robustness of features that would make teamwork and collaboration possible; such as, easy to download project plans, task notifications via email, and the ability to visualize the project as a visual mapping.

    Cons

    Complex projects might be difficult to setup in Casual. Our projects have a good deal of detail and moving parts due to resource constraints, but in reality, they are not overly complex.

    Casual PM - Project Management At It's Most Finest

    I've been looking for a product management solution that would integrate within my workflow for sometime. All of them lacked something or the other. Casual has everything and more.

    Also, because I need to check certain things when away from my computer, the iOS app makes Casual stand out from the crowd, as it allows an instant check to be done, without having to spend the time logging into a non-optimised web app.

    This has now transformed my working life. I'm much more productive than before, am able to send workflow's and deadlines to collaborators in an easily digestible flow diagram form, and now genuinely have a competitive advantage.

    Pros

    Ease of use, iOS App, ability to generate flow diagram PDF's and url's on the fly, regular updates.

    Cons

    Customer service could be more responsive to direct enquiries and requests. Even if the answer is no.

    I'm using Casual to track my tasks for multiple projects. I'm the only user. I like how easily and visually I could set the task dependencies. It really helps me flushing out the course of actions. Many other scheduling apps do this but nowhere to the extent as clean and intuitive as Casual.

    Great project management tool!

    Reviewed on 2017/10/26

    Pros

    The way task dependencies are made visual makes it really easy to communicate with others on the project progress and keep the project flow going. Bottlenecks and potential threats to the project are easily spotted so they can be avoided or mitigated in time.
    Also a great feature is to be able to use a previous project and clone it for a next project. This makes it easy to create generic project roadmaps and quickly build up a new similar project.
    The app/website is still under active development so there is active follow-up on bugs and new features still coming. Kudos to the support team! Quick feedback every time.
