    Taskade is a lightweight PM tool perfect for small, remote and distributed teams. You can use it as a unified collaboration hub for team tasks, notes, and video conferencing. Each chat refers back to the task list, board, or mind map.

    Trello

    Organize anything, together

    Can't beat trello. Super easy to use / anyone can pick it up quickly and get started. Integrates with everything. I always go with this when working with a small team. Trello + Slack. :)

    Will cover everything you need as long as you remain small. I'd go with Jira (Atlassian) when getting big

    Nuclino

    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space 🧠

    We are a team of 4 working remotely most of the time and we are using Nuclino! Discovered it on PH. It's similar to Trello but simpler, cleaner and easier-to-use. Instead of a short card, every issue comes with a whole page of content which can be collaborated on in real time. It's our new go-to tool for everything :)

    Plan

    A beautiful organizer that integrates into your calendar

    I've been using Plan for about 6 months now with my 4 person remote team and it's been a game changer! It solves the biggest problem my team had -- knowing what exactly we're all working on and how much progress we've made, without having to constantly check in over slack/email. Things my team loves about Plan: 1) Combination of projects/tasks and shared calendars in the same view --> We just drag our tasks onto the calendar and the team immediately knows what we're working on 2) Team dashboards showing what everyone is assigned, working on, and completed --> this has completely replaced our daily standups 3) Ability to switch between a Gantt Chart, Kanban, and List view for any particular project 4) Seems like the Plan team adds a new feature every week and are super responsive to our emails/feedback

    Asana

    The task management tool, completely redesigned

    David SpinksCEO, CMX Media · Written
    We use Asana at CMX. Simple and affordable. Love using it with Instagantt to visually map out our projects. Between this and Slack, we've basically eliminated internal email. Asana also offers a Trello-like interface now, though it falls pretty far short of the full Trello offering.

    It is generally observed that teams use one tool for communication, another one for making reports, another one for tracking time, and another one proofing files and sharing feedback and more. So, technology which was supposed to make your work life easy becomes the biggest roadblock in your productivity. But with ProofHub you can do all these things in one centralized place. The tool comes with all the powerful features your team is ever going to need at work. There is an in-built chat tool to communicate. There is an amazing proofing tool that helps you collaborate over files and documents to review and share your feedback. Everything you are ever going to need for a better work life, is available in ProofHub at one place.

    Airtable

    Realtime spreadsheet-database hybrid

    It's a pretty weird choice considering it's a bit harder to set up, but it's usable for so many things that it just gets to be worth it after a while. Forms, sales, the works. Easily scalable if needed. But, of course, Asana would be my second choice if you want a more full service solution.

    Has a shared view of team priorities, a process that fosters collaboration, and dynamic tools to analyze progress. A little heavier than Trello but it gives you a lot more of a framework right off the bat. Free for teams of three or less.
