Groups, Boards and Tasks – for organizing virtually any type of project. Boards can show tasks in a variety of views – Lists, Kanban, Calendar or Gantt, to suit all your task-management needs. More options are constantly being developed. Visual project management to help you succeed.
Organize your tasks how you want
You can currently choose between the following types, and we have more on the way:
- The classic List View includes some special options. For example, 'ReTime' helps you to retain a clear overview by hiding tasks until they are due. - Create tasks easily, assign work to specific users, set to-dos, deadline, budgets and more. - Give your task a description and define sub-tasks. - Team members can comment on progress, ask questions, discuss details and upload files directly to the task. - Define your own labels for priorities and milestones. - Sort lists in the way that works best for you. - If you need a special list, create a filter without moving tasks to another list.
- Drag and drop from one column to another to visualise the project and tasks as necessary. - Define new columns and provide your team with the bespoke structure that the project deserves. - Kanban is perfect for brainstorming and sorting tasks. Give your ideas room to grow. - It is also ideal for complex Agile development projects. - If you prefer another view (List, Gantt etc), it is a click away.
- Gantt charts provide a clear overview of all tasks, with their start and end dates. - See at a glance how tasks and resources are distributed and connected. Which team member is involved in which project phase? Where are the bottlenecks? Has the budget been calculated correctly? Are milestones too close together? - The Gantt view allows you to have a complete project overview.
- Group calendars according to your needs. - Select the most appropriate view for your needs: by year, month, week or day. - Define a group of team members to work together, or use it for individuals. - All that you would expect from a calendar and more, including reminders, recurring events, comments and attachments.
START WITH A LIST, UPGRADE TO KANBAN, OR CHANGE BACK, WHENEVER YOU LIKE - WITH ONE CLICK!

We know the PROBLEM
We are not a typical startup. We are part of a robust business and aim for long-term success, not short-term results. But don't worry – we are flexible and fast.We built the first version of OC ten years ago as an internal solution. We switched between OC and different tools over the years, but never found exactly what we were looking for. So, we developed, tested, changed and redeveloped, then repeated the process. The result of our hard work is what you see here. A solution developed and used by a remote team with the same needs and problems as you.
Made with Love
We developed OC out of a passion to find the best solutions for the tasks most people dislike, such as time tracking and compiling reports. We wanted to make our lives, and those of others, easier. We want to enable you to work when you like, without forgetting important data. We want to prevent you worrying whether you are working on the right tasks in the right order of priority, and whether you are within budget and timescale. With OC, you can know this before you even start, and we are constantly making improvements. We are sure you will find it indispensable. If you think something can be done better, let us know!
Nobody likes massive changes to a system they are used to working with. We implement updates weekly, in a safe, secure way. We offer new features as needed, and we are constantly improving existing functionality. These are the details that set us apart from other collaboration tools.
