Using Bitrix24 as a Free Sunsama Alternative

As far as daily planning and tracking are concerned, there has been a major shift from using pen and paper as the principal tools of planning and organizing workload to web-based and mobile applications. And Sunsama has become a great place to house tasks.

Unlike a range of other similar apps, Sunsama takes the relationship between task management and calendars to the next level. Its clean design, a bunch of valuable integrations, along with a straightforward drag-and-drop organizational flow make for a user-friendly system that enables customers to get the job done well in less time.

Sunsama costs $10 per month for their service to clean up your digital life, and that is pretty pricey when compared to Bitrix24.


Sunsama Overview

Sunsama is a daily planner widely used by remote teams, freelancers, and organizations across different industries. Sunsama has gained trust of many industry professionals for its ability to organize daily workload in such a way that users can accomplish more tasks and stay focused all the way through.

At its core, Sunsama comprises three key features.

  • Sunsama enables users to organize their workload using the Kanban view. Another nice aspect is that users can prioritize what they are going to work on each day. And if there is too much on the plate, less relevant tasks can be easily removed or dragged to a later day.

Additionally, depending on the number of tasks assigned for each day, the workload counter shows different colors. Thus, if it turns yellow or red, you might want to delete non-essential tasks or move them to future days. This simple feature prevents users from burning out and allows them to stay productive till the end of the day.

  • Sunsama enables users to visualize how they spend their time each day and what they have managed to complete so far. Sunsama also syncs with Google Calendar, allowing users to see what's on their schedule. Another great aspect of this app is that you can check out what your teammates are working on by looking through their calendars.

  • Sunsama enables users to plan and document meetings right from the calendar. On top of that, important notes you make during the meeting can be easily transformed into tasks.

Sunsama is undoubtedly one of the best productivity apps that can help you stay on top of your work. However, what makes it so different and less efficient compared to Bitrix24 is the fact that it's basically a calendar app, while Bitrix24 offers much more than that.

Speaking of the capabilities of Bitrix24 and Sunsama, here is what you should expect if you opt for either of these solutions.
