- I love Trello. Kanban works well for me. It's also so simple anyone can figure out how to use it quickly. Plus very customizable + so it works for more advanced usecases as well.Trello is really great. I'm currently using it to collaborate with a few freelancers on a project. Easy to setup and it's free for the basics, which is all we need!
- I love the design of Asana. This is definitely a strong contender and also comes with a free option. It makes me want to do a better job of managing projects, and people around me feel the same. I used to dread using JIRA, but came to like it more with Confluence tied directly. I'm leaning toward Asana for any new long-term projects I work on.Though I recommended two other tools as well, Asana is my choice when it comes to task and project management. The free version comes with sharing with up to 15 people, unlimited tasks, sub-tasks, projects, some customization as well. With the premium you get a couple extra features, but I never missed them.
- Zenkit is a great free option for individuals and small groups. It can represent your tasks in different views: list, kanban, calendar, mindmap... whatever works for you the best. And with custom fields you can do magical things.Easy to switch between spreadsheet/row and trello/kanban view, even to mindmaps and (soon) Gantt charts. This is Trello's natural successor.
- Its super robust and I know it sometimes gets a bad rap, but as a PM its by far the most flexible and familiar software for prod/dev teams.JIRA's the worst, but also the best. I've tried Pivotal Tracker, and also had to use Trello/Git Issues in some teams - yet I keep coming back to JIRA. Once customized, it really saves a ton of time defining stories and planning sprints.
- An almost perfect mix of power and simplicity for agile product management and development teams.Clubhouse puts all of your projects, teams, and tasks, in one place. It has a good UI, and its filtering makes it easy for you to focus and navigate through all the tasks you're working on.
- Basecamp is a reference for small businesses. Our web and mobile development team uses it for projects, and we're very satisfied!I can second this. We run our entire business through Basecamp now. The "Work Can Wait" mindset and features have been useful for helping our team slow down, think, and respond.
- It's no longer just for programmers. Product managers, legal teams, content strategists, UI designers—there's enough for everyone, without feeling overwhelming.
- This tool has a ton of functionality, yet it's simple to use. You can manage your whole company from one place, from task management to invoicing based on tracked time. Also, great design. 🙌
- Our company uses Redbooth every day to plan projects in our marketing and product development teams. It fits perfect in our stack and keeps all of our work organised and on track.
- There's no need for PM tool to be huge and monstrous. What makes Planyway useful is its easy-to-use UI, in combination with all known Trello benefits. It pushes the boundaries of any already used calendar and makes easier their integration with each other through the Trello UI. Dragging inside calendar is pretty handy, though it's full of hidden opportunities. PM has a plenty of tools and views to make the team be focused at work, not at spending the valuable time in studying complex apps.
- It's a great tool for project management w/ Kanban and Scrum.Very complete and flexible solution for project management.
- Chat and share info with your team instantly. Channels serve as data repositories so that's a plus. Also you can integrate PM tools like Trello, Asana. Covers all bases.
- Offers good task based project management functions but also trello style kanban boards if preferred. Gantt view when needed. collabo tools like seamless office document integration with full subversion and a great granular rights & roles management if you want to invite clients to projects.
- Sendtask is our team's task manager. It's super clean and easy to use. At the same time, you can customize it and track large projects with hundreds of tasks. I like the "no accounts" feature meaning you can work with anyone in Sendtask - even if they don't register. Also, I send notes from Evernote and email all the time and Sendtask turns them into actionable tasks with due dates, projects, comments, the ability to assign them etc.
- Kind of Jira-Trello combo but with a broader functionality and muuuuch easier to use. Love it for managing multiple teams and projects! It's also budget-friendly: free for individuals and teams up to 5 people (+ a free trial for everyone)Kate Krivosheina made this productAtlaz is the complete project management platform for Agile teams. From dashboards, tasks and checklists to communication, reporting, time and progress tracking, Atlaz has everything a team needs to move the project forward.Its still after beta but much better as just Trello to manage your projects in teams. We use it in our startup (RAIDBOXES) to make 14-day sprints and Kanban. Just perfect with some little bugs but they fixed every time from the makers very fast!
- The team and I have been using this software for almost a year and we're very happy. You can track the time for every task, assign projects to individuals, invoice clients and more.
