Looking for the easiest way to organize huge quantities of data in hierarchy levels, like lists inside lists inside lists…

    Taskade is a collaborative productivity tool to make structured lists of things. It's like a todo list, but much smarter. Create tasks, outlines, notes, kanban boards, and mind maps in hierarchical list format. We created Taskade to be as flexible as possible, without compromising on functionalities and ease of use.

    Turn your entire life into a list.

    The old and classic WF, maybe the father of them all. So minimal yet so powerful. Even though a bit outdated since it's not been improved or iterated since so many years. Anyway, don't think WF needs much of an introduction to Product Hunters.
    This is like the best ever. It should not be so awesome - basically indent and outdent a list - but it just works.

    Todoist is a great app for structuring lists and categorizing
    This is a good task list maker. But, not very useful for outlining articles or projects. I have used this in conjunction with Workflowy and it works great - using one for quick outlining, and the other for tracking completion.

    Ridiculously simple, incredibly powerful organization

    In the old days I found to be a more modern and nicer version of WorkFlowy but now it turned out to be most focused on being more an email manager than an outliner.
    Kyle ConarroCo-Founder @ Ad Reform / Userfeed · Written ties into email, but it also has outlining (similar to WorkFlowy) to make it easy to get your lists down and organized. Very useful for day-to-day task management.

    A web app for structuring your thoughts into lists

    Dynalist has more options than WorkFlowy and it is constantly developing while WF seems to be abandoned and hasn't been updated in years. The drawback of Dynalist is it's ever sloppy and ugly UI.

    A ton of features, flexible and easy to start with. It also run on linux on top of other OS
    It has tons of features-many useful ones missing from Workflowy (like sorting, due date, checklist, etc.). The UI has become better than Workflowy.

    If you are a product manager, check our Delibr! It is an outliner especially made with product managers in mind. It has a Jira integration that allows you to do feature discovery in an outliner document, write user stories as bullets with more details as sub-bullets, and then select them all and batch-add them as Jira issues. Within Jira, the relevant part of the document will then by synced and visible via a Jira plugin. It also has the normal outliner features like zoom and expland/collapse, as well as collaborative features like comments and also a neat way to facilitate the decision-making that happens as a feature is in discovery/grooming.

    Airtable 2.0

    Beyond the spreadsheet

    Melissa Joy KongOn Deck, Marketing & Communications · Written
    I just started using it to organize a large spreadsheet of Product Hunt data. It still has some limitations (for instance, you can't widen row heights on a spreadsheet), but it's a great tool for organizing data with multiple tags/hierarchy levels.

    Not such great for hierarchies inside hierarchies but great for making simple lists and other management tasks.

    The interface is very no fuss no bother. Just click, something happens, it's what you wanted and you're done. The power is in the shortcut keys.

    Useful for publicly publishing the notes you want to openly share. Also, it's useful that you can completely separate content in different documents so the searches are more specific.
