    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

      Brilliant for managing all your project backlogs in a Kanban fashion. Including a list for the DIY tasks around the house.

      As a Marketer I use this daily to manage workflow, sort ideas around future content and prioritize my activities. My team collaborate and report using handy integrations with Google and we use it as a Customer service and Sales script repository to store links to docs and how-to videos.

      Trello has helped me organize my projects for a while now. Since I work as a software engineer. An example of my boards is sort of where I create tasks then I classify them according to their current position on the sprint. For example I have tasks in different cards such as Icebox, Backlog, Current Iteration and Done. I have set deadlines all ranging from 2 weeks to someday :(. Overall a great product!

    The task management tool, completely redesigned

    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.

      I recommend Asana to everyone who is trying to get a more organized life.

      It's good to everything, it's free (until 15 members) and you can choose from 2 different styles: list or board. You can create unlimited projects, you can share tasks between projects with a click, there are chat boxes in every task, it's user friendly and their help forum is ultra helpful even if you never payed a penny to them.

      I can't live without Asana. Just the most amazing thing ever.

    • VeronikaInbound Marketing Manager

      I've used a few project management tools in the past and Asana is the only one that makes me genuinely happy and more productive (at work and with my side hustles).

      I can't recommend this tool enough for its ease of use, features and user experience. As a cherry on top, Asana's vision to help teams collaborate and do their best work is one that I can personally identify with!

  3. This is an excellent self-hosted solution that covers most small business' needs with no monthly or per-user fees.
