What's the best tool for managing work requests/tasks each day?

Is this a problem for anyone else? There's a lot of tools for your team or large orgs to manage work. From Basecamp, Jira, Asana and those are great for teams but what about managing your day and prioritizing requests on the fly.

    Trello

    Organize anything, together

    Joe PourHead of Product at ClickView · Written
    I use Trello as a place to dump all my day to day tasks. I have 5 columns: SOMEDAY, TODO, DOING, ONHOLD, DONE SOMEDAY = Medium to long-term tasks TODO = Tasks that need to be done soonish DOING = Tasks that need to be done today or that I am currently doing ONHOLD = Waiting for someone else or another department DONE = Task is complete If an on-the-fly request comes in, I just dump it straight into the correct column depending on the expected resolution time-frame! Hope this helps!

    I used to use Trello but as my team has grown I changed to Taskworld. It's simple like Trello but more functional.

    @jrfarr, can't remember how many times I have faced the same! But, I have a simple solution. 🙌🏼 I love the simplicity and functionality of Taskworld. It comes handy for managing my own to-dos and prioritising my own work. Similar to @joepour I use columns (Kanban-style) to organise my work requests. However, I use the Eisenhower matrix to prioritise my work. "What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important." - Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th President of USA. (Apocryphal) Columns: --- Urgent & Important = DO it NOW Not Urgent & Important = SCHEDULE a time to do it Urgent & Not Important = DELEGATE (Find out who can do it for you) Not Urgent & Not Important = ELIMINATE it (Your time is more valuable than you think) --- (I'm going to try out @joepour's column layout as well!) 👍🏼 P.S. When it's about collaborating with my team or across teams, managing work requests in our system or delegating tasks to team members, Taskworld is also my go to app.

    I'd stick to Trello for managing my own tasks, but for collaborative projects, Basecamp works best. I love the daily digests sent right to your inbox that helps you stay on top of things.
