    Organize anything, together

    +1 on Trello. I always go with this for small teams. Single board for a project. It's very simple + integrates with everything. I like how it doesn't force on you how to use it. Can adjust to whatever works best for your team.

      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.

      If you aren't an organized person Trello allows for easy to see visuals that help keep projects on track. The team at Curexe has specifically used it to organize our bugs, new features, staging and production stages of our development.

    The task management tool, completely redesigned

    I like Asana becuase it's checklist based and less visually drag-and-drop. It works better for my particular style, and adding things like instagantt makes it even better.

      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.

      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!

    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space ๐Ÿง 

    Love Nuclino because of how collaborative it is. It's geared towards teams so it comes with an extensive set of features that facilitate collaboration and communication without being distracting or getting in your way.

      Excellent product which is on the right track. In my view the pricing is too high for this stage with 5 Euro/user/ month. G Suite costs 4 euro for it's vast service portfolio. For us a price point at 1 or 2 Euro would feel comfortable.

    • Nuclino definitely deserves to be as popular as Slack and Trello. Like Slack and Trello, Nuclino focuses on one task and does a brilliant job at it. I really hope this stays actively maintained!

    The project management tool that grows with you

    I really recommend having a look at Zenkit. What I especially like about that tool is its' enormous flexibilty. You have 5 different views (Kanban Board, Table, Lists, Mind Map and Calendar) to choose from and switch views within one single click.
    • Using Zenkit for a few months now and can't see myself going back to my old tool. The team has done a phenominal job of building an application that addresses the need of power users, light users, and everything in between.

    • Edited my review to reflect the awesome response time to problem I encountered. Incredible, hard working team and their app reflects the care and dedication they have put into Zenkit. Keep up the great work, Zenkit!

    Paymo's a bit underrated by the public opinion, but it does a great job at tackling the full cycle of a project through its customizable modules. Plus it has a friendly user interface that makes it easy to grasp by almost every new comer. Here's what you can do with it: - Create a proposal straight out of your task hourly budgets and costs - Plan a project in detail with dependencies and milestones - Schedule your team in advance and account for their days off to know who works on what, when, and for how long - Collaborate through shared comments, files, and Slack - Track time through various web, desktop, and mobile time tracking tools, as well as create time reports on top of them - Monitor work through Portfolio Gantt Charts, Kanban boards, project statuses, burndown graphs, and in-app notifications - Invoice your work at the end of the project and get paid online through 5 different gateways

    Notion is basically a wiki that can contain trello-like kanban boards, data tables, all sorts of other things. But since it's a wiki, it's infinitely structurable, as if it's internal documentation.

    Quire Mobile 3.0

    Streamline your workflow with Quire Kanban board

    Vicky Pham made this product
    Everyone loves the simplicity of Quire - straightforward and super user-friendly. No matter if you want to use Quire for personal use or for your team, the tool really does help you organize everything. Quire has the nested/hierarchical task list which not a lot of the other apps in the same category offers. Also, the independent Kanban board is a huge plus! Y'all can go check it out for yourself (it's free!!)
    +1 for the most simple tool to help me organize my life!
    • If youโ€™re looking for a simple project management tool to use for yourself or your team, Quire has everything you need. Their UI is amazingly beautiful and the UX is just as smooth as any other highend app from big name companies. Hands down to the best project management app Iโ€™ve ever used

    • My team has been using Quire for quite a while now... Iโ€™m happy with its web browser and now, with the complete Kanban board, I can work with my iPad at anytime!

      Testing for 2 months already, downloaded in December. Despite the bugs, I can not stop using it, cause for now I can't imagine my inbox not being perfectly organized as it was before. I see product is definitely improving, so I believe the team will deal with all the bugs & conflicts with other extensions. Cause Drag helps me a lot. Thanks for the product.

      Extremely useful for anyone who spends a lot of time communicating outside the company - salespeople, support folks, PR people, procurement guys, etc. What I love most is the simplicity of it - which makes it very easy to get your people to adopt it!

    The All-in-one Product Management Platform

    Pavel Kukhnavets made this product
    My preference goes to as this product/project management tool with built-in prioritization for Agile teams looks like the great alternative between too complicated Jira and rather simple Trello. Hygger proposes all the necessary tools and features that may be helpful for any project manager, from well-designed Kanban boards to the innovative ways to prioritize features and tasks (ICE and RICE scoring, Weighted scoring by own criteria), etc.

      Nice tool. Was amazed how easy it is to migrate from existing Trello/Jira board.

      Imported everything correctly, so the transition can be really smooth and painful.

    Very different approach to project management. Aimed at indie game design teams, it works well with any other project management needs. It's a beta tool and still under development. We use it at Superdays to manage our tasks and couldn't be happier. Give it a try, it's easy to check out and scale up if wanted.

    IC Project

    Simple but useful project management system

    As for me, the best tool is the one with most features. So I would recommend you to try a project management tool, which is called IC Project. Since when we have ICP, we do not have to use any other tools. This comprehensive system allows us to manage the team and tasks effectively and easily. Why ICP? - you do not have to learn how to use it - your client can log in to the project and be up to date - you do not have to use many tools at the same time - mobile app I save time and money.

    Easier and cheaper than the Microsoft Project. I can generate cost reports and manage my project resources in Edraw Project.
  17. One place for just about anything. As a visual person Milanote does just about anything. I just wish it integrated with my calendar.
  18. You are right, there are too many project management tools available on the market, making it difficult to choose one that best suits a companysโ€™ needs. But, ProProfs Project is one PM tool that offers all the needed features to manage my team, projects, tasks, and clients - all one one platform! A few features of this tool include: - One Dashboard View - Time Tracking - Shared Calendar - File Sharing - Milestone Visualization - Email Notifications - Task Dependencies - Task Comments - Report Generation - Invoice Generation โ€ฆ.and a lot more! This project management software helps managers keep everyone in the loop and coordinate seamlessly to meet project deadlines. Also, through the time tracking feature, managers can track who is working on what and for how long. This helps in analyzing where the team needs to improve and, as a result, managers can train their team to increase overall performance. This tool also helps in generating reports and invoices in a matter of seconds! Hope this answer helps! :)

    Beautiful product management for lean startups

    After trying Jira, Trello, Asana, onRoadmap, this is definitely my favourite tool. It is simple, and visual, and has very usefull features, as the score system. You can add scores to your clients requests (if your are a SASS, this is practical), that help prioritize your issues for example. The integretion with Intercom is also nice.
