Work is about more than shuffling tasks. You deserve to feel connected to what you're building.

We combine the best project management practices with the high level purpose… and then use AI to make it more engaging.

Let's be honest... tracking the work is not as satisfying as doing it.

We don't kid ourselves...

We realize 

  • Project management is a do-or-die and not a want-to-do for most
  • PM tools are overwhelming when you just want to be working
  • Research shows employees aren’t engaged with their work

But it's not about projects

It’s about

  • Working smarter and work life balance 
  • Managing uncertainty & ambiguity
  • Seeing progress on the goals
  • Finding purpose in the work

And that's why we're doing it differently.

We connect the vision and goals to the work, simplify the confusing lingo, and use science to build with ADHD & cognitive accessibility at top of mind.

Manage the Strategy & The Plans

… the big picture features …

When up to 90% of strategic initiatives failing and team engagement falling year over year, it’s time we bring back the why of what we’re doing. 

With our company level strategy & goal management, you can now share relevant strategies with the team and create long term clarity on what’s being worked towards.

Our new Plan section includes a high level overview across a Kanban view (showing progress, status, and more across assigned Projects). 

There is also a timeline view, document management, adv. goal reporting up to the strategies, ideas, blueprints and retrospectives.

If you’ve ever gotten tired of filling out spreadsheets with goal tracking data that no one but you ever goes back to review…

This feature is for you. From the strategy level, you can now set your goals to be tracked and linked, reported and linked back up (counting towards the strategy progress), or not linked — for those times you need the goal there but the metrics can’t be easily tracked.

It’s hard to feel ownership or involved on a project when the project description requires you to get another cup of coffee. 

AI Story time is about bringing you into the project work. Our AI creates individual focused stories in unique voices and presents the project in a new light.

If you’re one to compile regular status reports, L.E.O. (our AI) will help you do that.

Set the timeframe that you need updates from the team and the AI will collect that information from the teams and pull it all together for you.

AI Status reports will take the updates from the team and build a detailed report that can be edited and sent directly to the folks needing an overview of the current progress. Image coming soon.

Our AI coach uses the principles of variable rewards. As you do your work and update tasks, our AI cheers you on with the job well done.

These features are currently unavailable in open source version.

Think & Make

… our core Project Management features … 

For task management, you get your choice of Kanban, Table or a List view.

Manage your subtasks and dependencies as well.

Welcome to our Milestone view. 

Use the milestone as a gantt chart overview of the time marked events. You can also view tasks on the chart and even view milestones across all projects in our Portfolio view.

Business strategy now made simple and easily trackable in one tool. 

Whether you’re validating the product, business, or getting a better handle on the project value, we’ve got boards to help get alignment.

Looking for ways to work smarter and not harder? 

Our reports allow you to see how the hours are all coming together.

Goals are what drive us to get something done. 

Research shows that the motivation hormone (dopamine) gets released on the way to the goal (not when we get it). Stay motivated by seeing that goal get closer.

You need more than a Kanban to keep track of what you’re building and that’s why we have Docs.

Embed outside documents and work with external teams or build internal docs with our Templates.

Retrospectives are an opportunity to reflect on the work that we’ve recently accomplished and give the team room to discuss what worked well, what didn’t, and what needs to change.

You need ideas to take you to the next level but it’s easy to lose track of them. 

Track ideas easily here and in the near future, link them to the to dos and work being done.

If you need to get better at estimating work or if you’re going to send hourly billables to a client, you need to be able to track your time with our Timesheets.

Track directly on the To Do when you start work, edit and approve hours. In the future, we’ll have plugins to allow you to connect to Quickbooks and other accounting platforms.

Some questions you might have...

When will these coming soon features happen?

We are actively in progress now. You can follow along on our roadmap and join our Discord for more information. 

Why would I use Leantime instead of Jira, Asana, or ClickUp?

We are the only tool in those names focused on cognitive accessibility and in creating a tool that is best for neurodivergent conditions like ADHD and dyslexia. 

Using us is one way you can support your neurodivergent employees.

We are easier to use and offer more core features than any of the other tools. This means better productivity at a better cost.

What is open source software?

Open source software is a platform where the core code is accessible for developers or people who want to install the system.

It gives teams and companies a new level of flexibility. You can read more here.

What makes Leantime different from the other tools?

Our goal is to simplify project management and make it a straight forward, get in – get out kind of experience. 

We also take project management to its full experience: bringing strategy & planning in align with execution.

Can I install this without software development experience?

We recommend having some experience with these types of installations before venturing on this path. 

We do offer hosted plans and on premise installation plans as well. Check out our pricing page to learn more.

If I'm self-hosting, can I move to hosted?

Currently, you aren’t able to do that on your own but we’re happy to help migrate you to a paid plan.

If you want to move from the hosted plan to a self hosting environment, we can help migrate that for a small fee.

Reach out through the contact form or connect with us over Discord and we can help map that out.
