    • 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!

      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.

    • chuchuDeveloper, Andela

      Trello has helped me organize my projects for a while now. Since I work as a software engineer. An example of my boards is sort of where I create tasks then I classify them according to their current position on the sprint. For example I have tasks in different cards such as Icebox, Backlog, Current Iteration and Done. I have set deadlines all ranging from 2 weeks to someday :(. Overall a great product!

    Workstreams is free for any team size, that alone makes it a great Kanban tool. You get seamless integration to your Slack channels and simple user interface of Kanban board in one. Some of the advanced reporting features are well worth the 9.99 USD a month / active user. https://www.workstreams.ai/featu...

      We started using Airtable to manage our content projects at work. After using it for a month, I decided I liked it so much that I signed up for Zapier and Airtable to manage my personal projects as well. It has completely changed everything.

    Without a Kanban board and Kanban cards my email inbox wouldn’t last I came across a Kanban tool with superpowers bigger than the moon. I logged in with G(mail) then tried with O(office365) the only email Kanban tool that will let you do so With an interface like gold and Flow like a sublime soul you move your cards so easily from left to your right workflow Labels and due dates let emails set and “don’t forget” and da smoothest timeline in one view reminds me of an upcoming lunch with my boo I will add a note and then some more To-dos will I ever need a Trello? no…no…no… With fast support reproducing every bug Confirmed! Flow-e’s support will make it work! No forgotten emails, meetings, or to-dos Flow-e transforms your email inbox into the neatest Kanban view. ----- If your email inbox is the definition of hell and chaos then Flow-e is your best shot - if you are looking for a personal Kanban software.

    • Excited to see where they take this. Until they have an iOS/Android app (so that I can drop the Gmail app), they're missing the ability to mark emails as unread.

    • Chaston GordonCEO, Result Reach LLC

      Email has become a second-tier medium for me because of the time it demands to sort, organize, respond, etc. I spend SO MUCH time cutting and pasting and even retyping info from email to various task lists etc. and it drives me crazy. I'm always behind on my emails and from time to time, I even miss opportunities due to the disorganization of my inbox and processes. As I use Flow-e, I'm amazed by the time savings and more importantly, I actually look forward to looking at my inbox! Beside the fact that it happens to be way more visually appealing now, I don't have clutter and confusion anymore - it's now the opposite, clean, organized, quick and gorgeous. GET THIS SOLUTION!!!!

    Great for customizing your own workflow, which is a series of task statuses (columns) for the Kanban board. They can be saved as templates and reused for similar projects in the future. The best part? The app comes with a Meta Kanban board (in beta for now), a new way to view all your tasks across all projects as a board. Ideal if you want to oversee tasks and how they progress in parallel.

      Testing for 2 months already, downloaded in December. Despite the bugs, I can not stop using it, cause for now I can't imagine my inbox not being perfectly organized as it was before. I see product is definitely improving, so I believe the team will deal with all the bugs & conflicts with other extensions. Cause Drag helps me a lot. Thanks for the product.

      Extremely useful for anyone who spends a lot of time communicating outside the company - salespeople, support folks, PR people, procurement guys, etc. What I love most is the simplicity of it - which makes it very easy to get your people to adopt it!

    • Kiran KunigiriA guy who makes cool stuff.

      Overall, Notion is like a bunch of widgets and management apps combined into one awesome package. I've been using it for several months now, and it works really well. It's most useful for team projects, where you can make an entire directory of pages for the different types of tasks you need to handle, and keep all progress and information synced into one app.

      Being able to move content blocks and pages around makes it very easy to organize, and the comment feature makes it easy to start a new thread to discuss a topic. Integration is also great, since I can embed code, videos, and even Google Drive documents. You can also customize the look and feel of pages (I love being able to set icons and header images for each page) to make them easily recognizable, and create complex layouts. There is a huge list of features that makes it possible to do almost anything you would want to do in a management/organization app.

      It's still improving, and they have a list of new features coming soon (the one I'm excited for is being able to assign tasks to people). There's an iOS app beta (that doesn't work on my device currently). There are a few minor bugs that I come across, but it's nothing that distracts you from using it. It's a solid app that I'll continue to use for both group and individual projects.

    • I'm invested in Priority Matrix but find the UI terrible...thus the search and trial of Notion. Wunderlist is only good for grocery and Home Depot lists. And Evernote has lost it's way. This product appears to bring EVERYTHING together.

      I really want to like this PM and possibly leave Flow, but how do you justify $79/month when it's beyond limited. No iOS app, no Mac app, no duplicating tasks, etc., I understand it's BETA, but how does someone justify the price for such a limited tool?

    • Seán Marsh ✌️Ethical Business Designer

      Really wanted to love this as the functionality would meet a bunch of my needs, but the execution just doesn't match the expectation set by the branding.

      Setting styles in the Doc feature is just plain busted. Closing edited docs doesn't always save, with no button to force a save, therefore creating confusion.

      The bottom nav layout is awesome, because it's got all things within easy reach - granular tasks, high level overview and all the rest.

      Overall, underwhelmed by this and kinda sad it didn't meet the needs I thought it would.
