    Slack is great for communicating with coworkers and other team members, no matter what type of team or workplace you find yourself in. It also integrates other apps into its software very well. Namely, the app Clever Google Ads integrates your Google Ad campaigns into Slack making things a lot easier.

    I'm a member of a tone of Slack Communities. Some of them are clients, others are just local communities. However, I feel you get the most out of Slack when you're less than 200 people. I am in large communities where you lose your interest because there are so many notifications coming in!

    Definitely, Notion is one of the most flexible tools out there. We use it for kanban, calendars, spreadsheets, notes, wikis, minutes, organizing projects, collaborate, etc. One of the things I love the most is the infinite hierarchy. It really helps for organizing.

    This is hands down the best productivity app I use to date. It doesn't matter if I use it on my own or with a handful of co-workers. I feel you can do whatever you want it to do. The power of simple databases is just mindblowing and super cool to share. Give it a try and see what you can build with Notion!
    I love how easy it is to organize notes! I am a huge fan of writing everything down. However, I was never good with organizing notes. Before Notion, I was used to storing everything in one folder without any system. Notion's clean and easy-to-use interface does most of the organizing work for you, making it easy to pull out notes whenever you need them.

    I mean you can't have a list about productivity and leave out Trello. It is probably the most flexible software I've ever used - they say it's not great to be a jack of all trades and a master of none, but Trello kinda disproves that in my opinion.

    The fastest way to schedule and manage time. Takes the headache out of scheduling meetings - especially useful for scheduling on iOS. Smart templates, fully integrated scheduling links. No longer need to manage - or pay for - a separate calendar link tool.

    Try collabee. Especially if you ever felt bothered by receiving too many notifications while you are at work. The best part of this tool is that you will never miss anything even if you are not constantly notified.

    It's basically a doc-based collaboration tool. You can assign tasks to different stakeholders, request for decisions from the managers, and plan events with this app. You can view your progress in a Kanban board too which helps you track everything visually. The file search feature is pretty powerful too.

    To be honest, we are using our own product :) — own server — encrypted database — requires fewer resources — reliable in slow Internet connection — instant messaging — voice/video calls (one-to-one) — project management, etc.

    As of now, EN is still the best note taking app there is. I did play around with Notion for sometime but it's not ideal for quick note taking and mobile apps are still a hug let down.
