- As soon as you've launched a product several bugs will start popping up (hopefully not too many 😄), I use Trello to keep track of these and prioritise what to work on first.
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!
As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.
I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.
Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.
- If it's an app you are building but don't have an hosting provider yet, ngrok will help you let you test your app among your friends/beta users while running it out of your local box! The ability to track requests and the incredible simplicity of ngrok is enough of a reason to give it a try.
Overall this tool is amazing for people who want to make quick nice content.
Their templates are cool for inspiration and makes the whole progress easier.
I cannot do everything but that's the beauty of it.
I am totally in love with Canva! For me it's the best graphic app I ever work with!
Simple enough to quickly create pics for Facebook, twitter posts, featured images for my blog and emails. The powerful and full of tools enough to create even an infographic! Guys, you're so awesome, you help me to level up my skills as a content, SMM and PR manager. I don't need to wait for designer. I can create an illustration in 5 min! I work with Canva like 1 year or even more. With free version, but I want to try paid too. Thank you, guys!
Their design is excellent. Behind the scenes its very technical, but the user experience is smooth and easy on the eyes. It does such a great job of taking actions and information in one app and bringing it to your app of choice.
For extensive users, pricing model is not so friendly. But other than that, it's very user friendly. You don't need any programming background to create Zaps Zapier also has great amount of support document to help you get going and be creative. Great product.
- Great collaboration tool, super slick interface for your team to get started quickly, offers unlimited integrations and users, inbuilt task tracking features. Flock is a free app and available across devices.For starters, Flock is absolutely free to use. It's a great tool for managing communication, projects, tasks and a lot more. Next off, there's video conferencing, screen sharing, code-snippets, file sharing, To-dos, Polls, and a few more that come pre-integrated on the platform. You can also integrate external apps with the platform. Best part, unlimited integrations allowed on the free plan too! So all the tools that you're using or about to use can be integrated within Flock for free. :) Btw, it's a cross-platform product. Works on Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and Chrome.
- Freedcamp for project/task management. Entirely free, unlimited projects for an unlimited time. Categorisation is super useful and the dashboard home gives you an important overview of each subproject within the main project plus the people working on a particular project. Every subproject can have a task list, milestones, discussions, timesheets, files, calendar, etc.
- If you're working with a team you'll need to have team links that speed up productivity. They're used all over the valley at big companies https://www.golinks.io *Disclaimer* I'm the founder of the product so there is some bias but anyone who has ever used go/ links at any company knows how much they increase productivity and are hard to live without. Really helps with communication among teams bootstrapping their way in the startup world.
- Since starting using it, I've been a lot more productive than by using Basecamp or local todos / notes apps. It's the feeling / UX, I guess. Love the fact you can easily link documents together, start a new linked document by writing +something. And, sharing and collaboration is built-in.
Its a great tool for starters, For teams I do not recommend. there are lots of apps that do the same, even google docs is more intelligible when collaborating and working with. But we already have OneNote, Evernote, Word Online, with lots of features way ahead Paper.
Use Paper to manage technical stuff and my team, and love it. Just the right number of features, document crosslinking and image embedding fits my needs exactly, and works for quick notes or longer documents.
