      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.

    Basecamp is a wonderful tool, especially for tracking tasks among highly cross-functional teams.

      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.

    I agree.. Its a great tool to collaborate with team on tasks
    Using Asana for a while. I think it the best fit for team work. *U also can try other apps, like: Trello, Slack, etc. But I strongly recommend Asana!)

      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!

      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.

      We were looking for a tool to replace Asana, and after initially testing Todoist, became certain it could be the tool for us. But sharing projects is a PITA. There's no easy way to let your team have access to all newly created projects. Also, the projects structure isn't shared, so sharing a new subproject causes havoc in the teammate's projects structure, and the teammate needs to manually configure the projects structure according to it's intended layout.

      Organize your life with pleasure. Add due date to tasks, tasks inside projects, subprojects and subtasks. Call your friends to join your project and assign tasks for them. Comment and add images on tasks. Have your tasks everywhere with nice apps. Love it.

    A fast, easy, collaborative hiring tool

    Hiring productivity and collaboration is super important, especially in early-stage startups that are building the foundation for their team. Recruitee streamlines every aspect of the hiring process. Slack and Trello are also great! However, Recruitee was made specifically for recruitment collaboration. Think of it as the Slack and Trello of the hiring world :)

      Plan is EXACTLY what I has been looking for and forward to for a loooooong time. Projects, type, hit Enter - added and next, drag-n-drop & drag-to-adjust - what can be more intuitive than this flow?

    Timing 2

    Automatic time and productivity tracking for Mac.

    Daniel Alm made this product
    Timing helps each team member automatically observe how they spend time on their Mac and shows them how productively they use their time. In addition, you can manually add blocks of time as "Tasks". If you give those a good description (e.g. "Blogger Outreach for article XYZ"), at the end of the week, you get a great overview of what exactly you spent time on during the week.
