We all use Trello and Slack, but is there something new that surprised you?
- Hygger combines the best functionality to work with remote team members, starting from cozy Kanban boards and beautiful timelines to advanced prioritization frameworks that help to define urgent and important tasks and improve the productivity of your remote team.
- Plan has flown under the radar for a little while now, but I think it's addressing the biggest issue with working in a remote team: daily visibility into teammates' work/schedule. At its core, Plan is a combination of a full calendar (two-way sync with Gcal/Outlook) + a project management tool. Whenever you are working on a task, you just drag it onto the calendar and Plan takes care of the rest (shows your teammates what tasks you've been assigned, what you've been working on, and what you've completed). It's so nice to just be able to open my calendar, then overlay my teammates' calendars on top of mine to quickly see what they are all working on this week (without having to slack them every day).
