When thinking of project management software, I am sure everyone has heard of Asana, Jira, Trello and Monday.com. All are fantastic project management tools in their own right. Enter Nifty, another tool that should be considered when looking at project management tools.
I have been using the Nifty tool for 6 months now to manage projects and time spent on different activities, and I have found it great! I had gotten to a point with Asana where I would need to upgrade, saw an AppSumo deal for Nifty, and jumped on board.
The great news is that AppSumo are running the Nifty deal again – read my review below and check it out.

What is Nifty?
Nifty is a project management tool similar to Asana. It is great for teams to manage upcoming projects, tasks and communication in a single place. It is accessible via your web browser and it has a phone app too, so perfect for users on the go.
You can create a single sign on with your Google account and link multiple ‘workspaces’ to your account profile.
Four reasons why I think Nifty is worth considering for your project management
Everything you would expect
The first reason I would definitely add Nifty to your shortlist of considerations, is that it has everything you have come to expect in a project management tool.
- Portfolios with projects
- Overall personal and team calendars
- Save projects as templates (great for campaigns or for marketers managing multiple client projects)
- Task management
- Chat and discussions per project and tasks
- File and document storage
- Custom fields
- Time tracking
- Ability to add your logo
- Users per project
- Ability to remove widgets from projects if not needed
List, swim lanes and milestones
In Nifty, you can create a milestone and a task list for that milestone. You can create milestones to be dependant on other milestones so that they cannot be completed until others have before them. You can also set tasks to be dependant on other tasks.
There are four kinds of views when viewing tasks:
- list view
Inbuilt time tracking
This feature is one of my favourites, within a task I can track the time I spend doing it. This means I can reflect after a project on the time spent on the activity, make changes to processes to be more efficient and if needed, update my project prices accordingly.
You can see time spent at a project or task view on the home dashboard of the project.
My final reason for loving Nifty is that they are continuously pushing out updated to remain competitive with the market leaders.
In summary, although it doesn’t have the same level of reputation in the market as Asana and Trello, I think Nifty is a great project management tool for marketing businesses as well as other small-medium businesses.
