- Slack is a team communication tool, which will also allow to integrate Services We Already Use.We can't imagine our internal communication without Slack. On top of that, we use the tools like https://trello.com for task management, https://heapanalytics.com, https://www.hotjar.com/, and Google Analytics for different sorts of analyses, https://stripe.com/ and https://recurly.com/ for managing payments, and we also use our very own https://brand24.com for media monitoring.
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.
- I've been using Trello for almost 2 years now, I never had to micro-manage things manually. Trello does it all for me. It's an amazing project management tool which also lets me integrate with a lot of other services like Slack, etc to automate a lot of stuff and make it more useful, everyday. Hope it helps. :)Just the right amount of features.
I just started using this with my marketing team at work, and so far it seems to be an efficient way to coordinate on projects. Now if I can just remember to log in and actually use the boards...
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.
- Perhaps the best SaaS product out there for accepting payments (and so much more)Solid API. Solid performance. Connects to everything. Libraries are free and easy.
You can make coupons and collect payments from across the globe
Superbly designed Payment Service Provider with great documentation.
- Even better than Hunter, covers our needs :)
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!
- Just started using Lumen5, Free (Beta) and simple tool to convert the blog text into video.This is tremendously easy to use, and it does a pretty good job of automatically selecting photos and videos.
- Tried both Asana and Trello. Asana fit our needs better at the time, but both are fantastic project tracking services.
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!
- This should be the hub for your company's communications, document management and productivity.
- Drift is a messaging app (Live chat) that lets you talk to people on your website.
My colleague wrote a full article (https://buff.ly/2PM87TA) about Drift, Intercom and Crisp
Drift is a great product, but it lacked a few features we wanted
It also had some problems with loading
I used it more than 2 months in and I do not recommend it. Why?
- its slow. Tested via gtmetrix, here is 30-40% more make Ur site more slow
- default setting for free plan. Here is no tell in description what on your website EVERYtime will be open dialog window for new visitors. And its not possible to disable it for free plan. Do you know how an open chat window infuriates visitors on the first visit? About 20% of the traffic you lose is simply due to this setting. And drift turned ON and default to all free customers.
- support at free plan. First answer got immediately, next - 2 days, last - here is left 4 days and not answer.
Overall, Notion is like a bunch of widgets and management apps combined into one awesome package. I've been using it for several months now, and it works really well. It's most useful for team projects, where you can make an entire directory of pages for the different types of tasks you need to handle, and keep all progress and information synced into one app.
Being able to move content blocks and pages around makes it very easy to organize, and the comment feature makes it easy to start a new thread to discuss a topic. Integration is also great, since I can embed code, videos, and even Google Drive documents. You can also customize the look and feel of pages (I love being able to set icons and header images for each page) to make them easily recognizable, and create complex layouts. There is a huge list of features that makes it possible to do almost anything you would want to do in a management/organization app.
It's still improving, and they have a list of new features coming soon (the one I'm excited for is being able to assign tasks to people). There's an iOS app beta (that doesn't work on my device currently). There are a few minor bugs that I come across, but it's nothing that distracts you from using it. It's a solid app that I'll continue to use for both group and individual projects.
I actually was just so sick of confluence and was asking someone at #Productboard about what they use and they told me about this. It's just pretty fun to use. Also the free trial is helpful if you're a small startup.
- Great tool to integrate push notifications that are kind of smartly delivered.
- Just what is says in the tagline, BI without the overhead and exorbitant cost. An easy way to track everything that's going on in your business. I'm a little biased because I work there now. But I know people who used it and my previous company had looked into using it before I left. :-)
- Keepin' it real here. We live and die by Google's Suite. However, we're constantly trying to refine our workflows and keep it lean without taking on too much technical/workflow debt. We focus more on organizational maturity through ideologies and delivery models and the tools we put into place streamline those processes. Management is agiler in our approaches whereas our labor force is locked into specific stacks + SOPs that are vetted. Love all the suggestions!
- Aidan Hornsby made this productExcuse my bias, but I'd like to recommend Flow ☺️ We recently totally redesigned the app and put a lot of thought into making it easy to take a high level overview of all the work happening across your teams/company, but quick to step down a layer to see team workloads and project-level boards, or zoom right in on an individual teammate’s tasks for the day, week, month, etc. We use it internally to run our company, and our customers swear by it.I'm a client (have been for a couple of years) and have brought it with me to new companies - everyone loves it.
My favourite team management tool out of Trello, Basecamp, Asana and Pivotal tracker. My team was using the previous version of Flow for a couple of years, and this beta for the last few months. Psyched to see it all go live!
P.S. Love the music in the video :)
Really loving the new Flow! We have two team departments, writers and the internal management team. It's slick UI and easy to use features makes on-boarding and using the app for tasks super simple and efficient for both departments.
Basecamp makes it much easier to manage the tasks your remote team is doing in a clean UI so that you get a good view of what is happening in the organizing. Amazing product!
One of the more complex apps for managing projects, a good one for keeping your team updated about the activity on each project/task.
It's a great concept but the implementation is still lacking; resource usage is incredibly high, the application is frustratingly slow, and the amount of bugs encountered is in the tens per day.
This is a new way to manage design work. I really appreciate their app pretty new and pretty awesome. Recommended for small and medium and larger design teams who are working with product apps.
