    Organize anything, together

    Tejas Kinger19SaaS Product Marketing @ Freshworks Inc · Written
    I'd suggest Trello over Asana if you prefer a Kanban style view of tasks that you need to manage across your team.

    The project management tool that grows with you

    Sean KressKarlsberatung · Written
    I have experimented with many different tools over the years, but I must say that Zenkit simply tops everything. It´s really easy to use and has great teamwork features which just make it really easy to get work done. Just amazing. Keep it up guys!
    Eric Ang4Digital Marketing Manager, O&C Resources · Written
    I would recommend Zenkit. As a product manager, you will need different tools to accomplish your task - todo, project management, gantt chart, mind map, excel spreadsheets... zenkit provides you everything under one roof and you can easily link up between these tools.

    I have used Slack at my current org. It’s truly a cross-functional team collaboration tool.! 🔝⚒ 2️⃣ 🚢

    The best tool for team communication, threaded communication, and chat.
    Matthias KentziaProduct manager at Project A Ventures · Written
    Lots of great little benefits, but what really makes Slack stand out is the almost limitless integrations you can out together.

    Beyond the spreadsheet

    You can organize everythig!
    AskarChief Everything Officer, ARSHtec · Written
    I was blown away by the versatility of this tool. It can be tailored to fit many needs and is pretty much an open database with an Excel kind of UI to it, that's out on the cloud.

    The world's most open collaborative task manager

    Trifon Tsvetkov made this product
    Good overview of what the whole team is doing. Lets you include freelancers and contractors into your team without creating accounts for them. Also integrates with email and slack so you don't have to switch between apps all the time. Simple and free.
    Julius ŠakalysWeb application engineer · Written
    I've been using this daily to manage the work of others and my own. Pretty happy with the simplicity of it.

    Turn your entire life into a list.

    As submitted before: Asana and Google sheets are the true essentials IMO but I find Workflowy also to be an invaluable tool for planning.

    Customer Feedback & Product Roadmaps

    Another Roadmap product which helps you gather customer feedback and share publicly or privately. This one is more like Uservoice which imho has become an over-priced mess of features and UI. Fave features: - Ability to gather all customer feedback in one place, then convert it into stories, and share the releases - Public sharing which enables voting - Dashboard view to keep track of everything at a glance - Nice UI

    productboard 2.0

    The product management tool for makers who care.

    Perfect for product and Feedback !
    Constant market discovery - i.e., talking to customers and the market - is one of the most valuable things product managers can do. But we've never had a good tool for gathering and making use of all the data we collect. Productboard provides that tool. Finally, we have an assistant for helping detect the weak signal of important market problems, for which we can create successful solutions.
    Nicolas MondadaProduct Manager, Mulesoft · Written
    Great tool for roadmapping and collecting feedback!

    ProductPlan and Pivotal Tracker Integration

    Easily tie project details to your strategic product roadmap

    thomas rossStartup analyser and investor · Written
    I don't know if you're working in an 'agile' environment but Pivotal Tracker is a simple collaborative tool which is great for creating and tracking feature requests or monitoring bugs.

    User-friendly timetracker for freelancers and teams

    I suppose TMetric is a must-have tool for product managers, as it helps to track time during the working progress and estimate time for tasks.

    It combines Trello, Asana, Slack, and your team file-sharing tool of choice all under one roof. Dead simple to get started, super powerful, and actually fun to use.
