What can you use the app for?

Action Method provides users with an intuitive way to manage and complete projects and tasks. The application allows the user to capture actions in steps. The user can see which steps need to be completed first to work through each stage of the project. Users can also delegate Action Steps to others so the entire team or a group can participate in the completion process. After delegating a task, the user can monitor progress to make sure that all members are participating and no one falls behind. Action Method allows users to manage projects, which can be anything from a work related undertaking, a project from a client or an event the user is planning. Action Method synchronizes with mobile devices so the user can access their projects while away from their computer.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Action Method was created by Behance in 2006. The application offers many enticing features and is currently in beta. This is important to note because there are still a few areas that could use improvement. One being the lack of a calendar view and the other being the inability to connect contacts to the projects and tasks they are associated with. Although there are ways to work around this, these options could make Action Method a more attractive project management solution.

What are the differences to other apps?

Action Method offers users a clean interface that allows users to build a logical series of steps to complete projects. The application actually focuses on the method of completion, which helps the user prioritize by determining what steps need completed first. The user interface is easy to navigate and allows the user to oversee any kind of project, from a very minor undertaking to a more complicated endeavor.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Action Method welcomes users with a clean interface that assists the user as they work through the project completion process. The site favors a professional blue and black color scheme with a white background that prevents Action Method from becoming too busy. Users can quickly access each area of a project and save time by organizing all of their tasks and team activities in one place.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can sign up for an Action Method account by clicking the orange and white “Sign Up” button nestled in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The unique registration form is found across the center of the following page in one row. The form asks for an email address and password. After completing the form, the user can click the blue “Continue” button. The form immediately changes and asks for a first and last name as well as terms of service agreement. The final step asks the user to check their email inbox for a verification message which must be accessed to complete registration.

What does it cost to use the application?

Action Method invites all users to sign up for free. There is no subscription fee currently required to create and maintain an account. It is important to note that the application is in beta, so this is likely to change in the future.
