    Trello

    Organize anything, together

    Great Kanban based tool. Used it for quite a few years now. If this is for a team, 'd recommend having solid processes and workflows built on paper before implementing it on Trello. Because the tool is so versatile and robust, that would leave the process decision making to the user. While that is great for structured organizations, team just figuring out their processes can take a while to actual nail something down because you start implementing directly on Trello. Also, if your team also uses Slack, that could really be a deterrent from adapting any productivity tool because the main point of using something like this is to collaborate. If teams collaborate only on Slack, then these productivity tools because an obligation to use rather than a fun process.

    Todoist

    Organize your life. Then go enjoy it.

    I don't require a ton of customization on my todo list entries. I just need something that's easy on the eyes, fast, and simple to use. It also helps that I can install Todoist from just about any platform including Chrome.

    The best one out there so far. I've been using this to manage many marketing campaigns. As a marketing manager that coordinates many global projects, I have to be extremely detail-oriented. My team works off of tasks and event deadlines too and I need an app that lays out plan visually and literally. collabee support both features and it's seamless.

    I tried this too and it works out pretty well for my team. I like jotting things down and add some details when I'm in the planning stage. This way my team can know where things are headed to. Adding stakeholders is easy. Just mentioned them with @ that's all.

    Nuclino

    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space 🧠

    Nuclino is really a tool in its own category. We have moved all of our work and content there and now it doubles as our team wiki and project management tool. A lot easier than switching between a ton of different tools, definitely worth checking out!

    I used to manage a pretty large remote team at Adobe. We were all in different times zones, it was hard to find a time to consistently meet up without someone having to sacrifice an early morning or late evening on a work call. We started using CloudApp combined with Slack to communicate more visually. We also found that a personlized video of a screen recorded task was a great way to get your point across quicker than with text and to replace a lot of meetings and review cycles. I loved it so much that I actually left Adobe after 7 years and joined the company haha.

    Absolutely in love with it, good amount of customization, available (and working well) on every platform, reasonable price from premium subscription. It has habit tracking combined (but being completely second to your actual regular work day tasks) what makes is really unique and worth every penny.
