    The project management tool that grows with you

    I use Zenkit everyday to work! You can set up different teams, assign tasks, communicate and comment, share documents, etc. With just one click, you can change the view from list to kanban, table, mind map or calendar, depending on your need. I especially like the Kanban view, because it allows me to track the progress of projects visually. Oh, it can also sync across all devices (web, desktop and mobile app)!

    One combined workspace. All of your team documentation.

    Really great tool for collaborative writing, team notes, internal KB. No poll option, well, not yet anyway :)
    Was love at first sight with Slite! Loved the beautiful design, it's simple to work on same document with your team and it's not cluttered with thousands of formatting options so you're focus on writing and building knowledge with your colleagues not figuring out how it works. Worth a try!

    Notion is by far my favorite collaboration tool. It seems to mostly cover your requests to "allow a team to communicate (ask questions, receive answers, discuss); post/store documents; participate in polls and share results; and broadly search for content." I don't think you can create polls within Notion, but I'm sure you could figure out a workaround. I think you'd like it because it's great for creating and storing docs and it's super easy to communicate with other team members on specific things, rather than going back and forth in Slack.

    Microsoft Teams

    Microsoft's Slack competitor

    Dana Todd
    Dana ToddEcommerce for made to measure clothing ยท Written
    We used Teams at my old workplace, which was a .NET shop so we were all-in on Microsoft products. I was ready to hate it but frankly it was so useful because of the native support for MSFT Office products and document storage. Much better than Slack for doc collaboration and project management, and can plug directly into Visual Studio for detail IT mgt. We were using an early version of it, and I assume it's gotten even better. The only thing that became an issue was the conflicts on the various logins because many of us had personal Live and Office 365 accounts which kept conflicting with One Note and Teams logins and sometimes people would put office work in their personal folders instead. Other than that, it was really a pretty solid product.
