What's the best productivity tool for product managers?

I have multiple people that I have to follow up with and multiple features and stories that need development and iteration. Keeping track of it all is not easy, and I want to be more organized than using an ever more crowded note taking app.

    Airtable

    Realtime spreadsheet-database hybrid

    Carson JonesZero Fourths a Doctor · Written
    I recently switched my freelance work from Trello to Airtable, and I'm glad I did. Airtable is more data-first, is more flexible, and comes with more free storage. In Airtable, you can enter "objects" (tasks, projects, assets, etc) into a large spreadsheet and then build multiple views on-top of that data. For example, if you had a spreadsheet full of tasks with a column for status, Airtable can automatically create a Kanban view for all of those tasks. Airtable also provides a ton of free templates you can use to design workflows for CRMs, asset pipelines, support processes, etc. I am still exploring ways to connecting my data to other apps I use, but for now I'm happy with Airtable.

    Fieldbook

    Create a database, as easily as a spreadsheet

    Fieldbook is super versatile and powerful. It's like spreadsheets on steroids. You can easily customize it to your own needs and workflow. It comes with a powerful API to further extend the functionality.

    Moo.do

    Ridiculously simple, incredibly powerful organization

    Jason CrawfordChopping wood, carrying water · Written
    Fieldbook, Trello, etc. are good for team project/task tracking, but for personal todo lists I like something super-lightweight. Moo.do is just text, but it lets you make hierarchical lists, assign priorities, and collapse/focus/filter.

    Todoist

    Organize your life. Then go enjoy it.

    Kyle Hess5Fintech Product Manager · Written
    I went 25 years of life without a todo list. Now i'm on todoist, and it's SO LEGIT. helps me stay at inbox zero, easy to quick add things, and can schedule them out later. and there's enough gameification (sp?) that i keep trying to find new ways to use it.

    We're an agile shop, and PivotalTracker has proven to be the best thing we've found. It's not perfect... but it has a good amount of "guard rails" that force us to all use it the same way. we use a wiki/google sheets to project plan, and then when we're ready to start writing stories for our developers we move over to pivotal. i like to build out story templates so that we get all of the requirements in for each story. at this point, i couldn't imagine us using Trello... PT is that good.

    Zenkit

    The project management tool that grows with you

    Use the view of your data that fits the task. Schedule meetings in calendar, daily tasks in list, workflow in Kanban, a table to drill down. All of these "views" are wrapped around the same data, just displayed in a different way to help you be more productive.
