An Important Action Method Update

We’ve made the difficult decision to sunset ActionMethod Online permanently in the spring of 2014.

Our core products, Behance and 99U are growing exponentially, and we are challenging ourselves to focus our energy on our central mission: to empower and connect the creative world. At the same time, more and more task management solutions are coming to market run by teams that are solely focused on building applications for productivity. Deciding to close AMO has been a difficult decision for us, and we know it is an inconvenience for you.

We hope that delaying the official sunset until June 1st, 2014 leaves you plenty of time to wrap up existing projects on AMO and plan a smooth transition to another service.

As you may have already noticed, you are no longer being charged a recurring fee for AMO. Given your loyalty, we wanted you to be able to continue to use the product, free of charge, until we formally close it.

You’ll be able to continue using Action Method until June 1st, 2014; after that, the service will be taken offline. We encourage you to use this time to export your Action Steps and migrate to a new system.

We’ve outlined below two other task management systems that we recommend, all of which support the methodology.

Wunderlist is more geared towards individuals and small teams, with the necessary features to practice the Action Method. Be sure to go into “Account Settings” and make the “All” view visible in the Sidebar to have a view of all of your tasks, sorted by due date.

Use Asana to create and manage tasks, and you can add tags, due dates, and other ways to easily organize your tasks. Asana is scalable for larger companies and supports delegation of tasks to other members of your team.

We will also continue posting more suggestions on our website.

Thank you, and please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
