- Simple and lightweight. Great for document collaboration and knowledge sharing.
Excellent product which is on the right track. In my view the pricing is too high for this stage with 5 Euro/user/ month. G Suite costs 4 euro for it's vast service portfolio. For us a price point at 1 or 2 Euro would feel comfortable.
Nuclino definitely deserves to be as popular as Slack and Trello. Like Slack and Trello, Nuclino focuses on one task and does a brilliant job at it. I really hope this stays actively maintained!

I've used this for some time and love the platform. It's simple to use and has been expanded to cover all the main social channels we manage for clients.
I like two features: inviting teammates to approve posts and suggest edits, saving posts to public Facebook and Twitter pages that I do not own, so that these can be chosen to be published or not by the page's owner on their Planable account.
- 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)!
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!
We've been using Slite for a few months and it finally solved our long research for the perfect knowledge sharing app :)
The adoption by our team was impressive, and Slite makes our knowledge management a breeze
We've been using Slite for few months, and we can't be more happy. Best benefit is that it's a perfect way to improve transparency inside our team and to onboard new teammates!
- Slack is designed for people to communicate effectively. Your requirements perfectly match slack. The best part is there are many useful integrations in slack which you can use it for your specific needs.It's a nice which combines chat, group chat, phone, conference, video, desktopsharing, video conference in one and many more things.
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.
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.
- Philipp Bohn made this productCircuit provides all of what you describe above + scalable, quality, integrated voice, video and screen share collaboration across desktop and mobile apps (iOS, Android), with an unlimited amount of messages even in the free version
- 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.
HANDS DOWN 🙌🏼 THE BEST PRODUCTIVITY, ORGANISATION AND RESOURCE WORKSPACE myself or my team have ever touched 💯
We're huge advocates of Trello, power-users of Slack, data-hungry Google Sheet/Doc fanatics and unloyal downloaders of many productivity, Wiki, task management and organisation apps. With my CTO I often mused the idea of building an all-in-one workspace for internal use that sat as our Pandora's box of goodies ranging from development wiki's, onboarding information and branding resources all the way to task management, meeting notes and even time tracking - lo and behold I stumbled across this gem of an app.
We decided to run Notion for a week in tandem with Trello (for our highly-granular level project management) starting by spending an hour in the evening porting over info to populate a few spreadsheets, wikis etc. I also went ahead and threw personal pages up to trial it on an individual level. 📝Note: if you have a super high turnover of to-do's and an active team you won't find switching over from another app to be a lengthy process. After 6 years of managing a creative agency I reckon I have seen enough task management and organisation apps to last a lifetime, so take my thoughts here with that consideration.
After a week we drew the following conclusions:
⏱ We worked faster with Notion than we did with Trello, Evernote or even a physical whiteboard.
📦 Today I solely used Notion for the entire workday. This time last week I would have used Trello, Slack (sending meeting notes and memos), Google Sheets, Google Docs, the native OSX notes app and GithubWiki just to get my day ORGANISED!
📚 Managing client editorials, project budgets, to-do lists and even basic memos and planning has been a breeze. It's great as a lightweight CRM too.
🛠 We were more organised than ever before. It's great to have a knowledge base for our products, plans and company sitting right amongst our task management tools.
We have also been left wanting for nothing (👏🏼 Congrats, Notion team) but dreaming of a few things:
💵 Beefier finance organisation/support. Integrations with Quickbooks, Xero maybe? Make it easier to build budgets and organise our money plans!
🗣 Room to annotate and collaborate on images/PDF's etc.
🔐 Function to lock pages so you can't edit, and the little hover tooltip to edit doesn't show up.
🎨 Integration with design apps - Sketch, UXPin, etc. Many many many creatives will use this app and be left wanting in this area. Think: a creative agency collabs, annotates, refines, develops and more...keep them in Notion.
The TLDR: Notion 2.0 kicks a** and we'll be using it for a long long time in place of a myriad of other productivity apps and tools. You should too.
I want to move from Evernote (I am a premium subscriber) to Notion, I really do but I don't think Notion wants me to. Whatever I am about to say, I say it with nothing but respect for Notion and in the hopes that it will continue to improve at the same pace.
First, the good - Notion has the best note editing interface I've ever used. A close second might be OneNote (it's a high bar, mind you) and Bear. It combines the simplicity of Evernote or Markdown with the power of OneNote although, it is missing the ability to use handwriting and doesn't support iPad with Pencil just yet. When it does, it will be perfect. I also like that I can save code snippets. Why is this so hard for Evernote?
Notion 2's tables, boards and other updates are huge. While I'm sure the in-built kanban board is not as feature complete as Trello, it should be more than enough for most projects. Same for tables. Airtable has a bunch of really cool advanced features but for most use cases, tables within Notion are just fine. Notion is on the right path and I am sure these features will only improve.
Now for what I don't like - The price is definitely my number one complaint. I will happily pay for Notion when it can do everything that other apps can. Until then, why not let me stay connected to the product with a cheaper paid plan or a better free tier? I pay for Evernote but if I were to consider switching, I can't do so purely because Notion doesn't do a bunch of things that Evernote can (even though it does a lot of things that Evernote doesn't) - Chrome extension to clip articles, emails, images etc., powerful mobile app with business card and document scanning, iPad support etc.
At $8 a month, it is more expensive than G Suite on a per-user basis. Why not give me 100 - 200 free blocks per month? Let me grow to love it. Let me build a workflow around it. Give me some incentive to tell my friends about it. When you have the features I want (I'm sure you're working on it), let me pay for it.
Price aside, I would also like to see how Notion fairs for quick note-taking, It's designed to be a wiki-style product and I get that but I'm sure a LOT of people are using it for personal notes. I use Evernote to save one-line notes - phone numbers, quotes, URLs etc. Notion's wiki-style UX is too heavy duty for that kind of use. It would be really cool if there was a "scratchpad" or "quick notes" feature that was not as heavy duty. For these simpler notes, I don't want to organize them into pages, I just want to save them and may be tag them. Which brings me to another feature I could really use - tags. Why limit users to only folders? Why not allow users to just tag notes?
I could go on but ultimately, I won't be switching to Notion right now, even though I really want to. Cost is too prohibitive but I'm sure I'll be on the hunt for future updates.

- Trello has an intriguing interface that resembles solitaire. It’s easy to learn and works well for monitoring projects and assigning tasks.
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.
If you aren't an organized person Trello allows for easy to see visuals that help keep projects on track. The team at Curexe has specifically used it to organize our bugs, new features, staging and production stages of our development.
I love Shelf! I've been using it for a while now and it really helps me find and organize my cloud content. As storage of information and ideas gets messier and messier, Shelf helps me feel organized, knowing I can get to anything I need with ease. I can't wait for the future integrations that will make accessing my information in the cloud even easier.
It's been a great organizational tool for my own use, and it makes it easy to distribute specific items to different groups of other folks. Very effective and flexible overall.
I have been testing alpha version of Draftium before the launch and must admit it has greatly simplified my work. So when I need to create a landing page, I make a quick wireframe (with copy) in Draftium and pass it on to UX designers. They already see what I want to get as a result and so we spend less time on numerous iterations.
I have yet to use it, but from the video alone, it looks like something to further speed our process.
Update: Loving this product. The makers are checking all the right boxes and what I love about it beyond the relatively generous free tier as well as the package this fits into, is the overall intent behind it. To cite a comment I made: "Absolutley love the motivation behind this: the combination of simplicity, speed and frictionless workflow paired with tasteful results," it just makes for an awesome combination not to be missed.
- 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.
I really appreciate the platform and I’m using it with my remote peers constantly. It kinda reminds me of Ventrilo or Teamspeak but for business, and everybody can enter with just one link, which is a really cool thing! :)
I found it better than teamspeak, skype or appearin. Very simple to use and it felt very stable. All the little details and graphics are spot on :)
Loving the fact I can have one place to check my emails and messages. Obviously with this there are some advanced features still not there, but I can live with this given I now only have one place to search for all my stuff
Love how I can triage messages and emails in the same inbox. The files tab for every channel is a gem. Looping in a team is so powerful when I need help with my responses to clients. The bot is still under construction but he's getting some cool skills soon!
