- For small groups I like to put everything into Trello. Can't beat it in terms of simplicity - but is also highly configurable and extensible. I think the perfect small team "stack" is Trello + Slack. Integrate the two and have trello changes post into slack. Keeps everyone up to speed with what's happening on the project and where things are at. "Official" work/conversation goes into Trello. Then side convo's/chat in Slack.
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.
Trello has helped me organize my projects for a while now. Since I work as a software engineer. An example of my boards is sort of where I create tasks then I classify them according to their current position on the sprint. For example I have tasks in different cards such as Icebox, Backlog, Current Iteration and Done. I have set deadlines all ranging from 2 weeks to someday :(. Overall a great product!
- I still think Asana is the best tool for everything from "quick jot down a couple tasks" to planning a big project. Free up to 15 folks.
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!
Great and helpful app! I use Basecamp integration with TMetric in all my projects, for me this is the most convenient way to track my time for any activity in Basecamp
I'm a big fan not only of BaseCamp, but also their founders' books (Rework, Remote, Getting Real) and blog posts. Their work philosophy is amazing and it's reflected on the clean and concrete software.
I really enjoy managing all aspects of my company with BaseCamp
As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.
I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.
Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.
- A must-have for managing communication and projects within the team! Also, it's cross platform and free to use. Organize projects channel wise, and manage tasks within using its to-do feature. Offers a suite of productivity apps that come pre-installed on the platform. For video chat, there's the video conf feature too. Integrates with most apps like Trello, Asana etc. Besides, can use its APIs to integrate your own app. Quite easy-to-use and intuitive. Works just fine with non development teams too.
- With ProofHub, your teams, clients and all the project communication stays in one place. There's no need of investing in too many different tools to run your business. Our project management software makes it easy to create plans, collaborate with teams and clients, keep things organized and deliver projects on time.
- Alex Potrivaev made this productThe best way to ensure you folks are indeed on the same page is by sharing regular feedback. I think you should take a look at Teambit - it’s a lightweight tool that can seamlessly integrate into your workflow and make feedback a daily habit in your team. I know paying for things when you are that small can be challenging, so we actually made Teambit free for teams of up to 8 people. Btw, it’s two of us in Teambit team and we’ve been using it successfully for the past year, so promise it can help ensure you folks are aligned.
