    Part knowledge base, part collaboration space 🧠

    A super simple and lightweight kanban board tool, a lot easier to use than Jira.

    The project management tool that grows with you

    Zenkit is a powerful but simple task/project management tool for team collaboration. You can switch views from Kanban, table, to-do list, mind map, calendar with just a click. Although paid version is even more powerful, in your case you can start with free plan since it allows up to 5 members! Give it a try :)

    Plan 1.0

    Manage & organise your life

    Plan’s been great for my small remote team. We used to do daily stand ups in Slack to figure out who was doing what and if someone was blocked, but now we just use the dashboard feature in Plan and I can see what people are working on. I wish they had a few more integrations (Invision would be great) but best tool i’ve found so far

    By far, I like collabee the best. What I like the most about it is that it helps you keep track of things. I have used other tools like Slack and although it is an amazing tool to exchange brief messages with your team members it does not have as much visibility on the whole workflow. I recommend using this tool on top of some other communication tools (if you absolutely need one. You can even use Skype for free for a small team) and streamline your process.

    I’ve seen tons of team collaboration services so far. Among them, collabee has a unique characteristic. All of features are engineered for deep work. I bet, you will instantly understand what I’m saying when trying the collabee service😄

    Slack App Directory

    Your go-to for finding apps that work with Slack

    If all you need is a tool that keeps up with status by tracking todo items then I would just start a free @Slack ; Add all 5 members to it, and then add the /todo command ( to all the channels. As soon as anyone finishes a todo item everyone in the channel is instantly notified. In addition to this you can attach any type of file directly to the @Slack channel and even maintain the content of text-based files within channels too. Management tools greatly differ based on what types of tasks you need to manage, and what kind of content is required, and how it needs to be shared and consumed across your team, however... ...You have not provided a very clear picture of what you're managing at all, is it code? Is it graphics? Is it a more complex product/service testing/support/update system? Certain tools will likely provide better task management than others, some are much more complex in their offerings, and others are much simpler. Each tool mentioned so far is better suited for managing certain groups based on what they're actually doing, however, @Slack has so many integrations that you can most likely adjust it to perfectly manage what you're doing. Beyond this, it's quite simple (within a week or less) to create a BOT in @Slack that will actually work autonomously making your task of task management itself simpler and more streamlined/automated.

    It helps to choose the right person for the task based on one's skills level and knowledge. Easy and fast, try it out especially if the majority of the team are developers.

    Invoicing, Expenses, Time Tracking, Contracts & Payments

    Couldn't think of a better app to use to help me manage my daily tasks and workflow. The tool simpy creates tasks for you based on your project, contract terms and deadlines all in the app. It's simple and intuitive to use and really helps your mind de-clutter and stay organized.

    IC Project

    Simple but useful project management system

    Have a look at IC Project. I think it meets your expectations. It's an easy-to-use system. It combines many management tools. Why IC Project? - You do not have to use many tools at the same time - You do not have to learn how to use it - Your client can log in to the project and be up to date - Mobile app Functionalities: Project management, Tasks, Calendar, Time tracking, Messenger and mail, Wiki, Contractors database, Absence of employees, Invoices, Service requests, Ability for clients to login, Resource management, Kanban cards, Gantt charts (visible task groups). Since when we have ICP, we do not have to use any other tools. Task management takes place on Kanban boards, where you can add files, checklists, and shortcuts. In the system, you can set deadlines and meetings. In the Wiki module, you can put the necessary documents. These are just some of its features. It is a comprehensive program, and at the same time it is still intuitive. The mobile app is available.

    If you are managing video project, I think that you may be interested by @Strime. It has a very sleek interface, it's free to use and available in english, french and spanish. You can keep track of all the changes required by your clients on your productions in one single place, and work on them like on a todo list.

    I've been using this one for years. I'm still on some grandfathered free plan, though. In addition to this I recently started using a whiteboard with sticky notes. It's more exciting to use and persistent unlike any app.
