    Taskade 2.0

    Create tasks, notes, and video chat, on the same page. ⚡️✏️✅

    Taskade lets you easily create lists of tasks, like a task list for a meeting, a task list for a project, things you need to do this week, today’s tasks and so on. You can start a task list with a blank sheet or one of many ready-made templates can be selected. It's simple, collaborative, with integrated messaging and video chat. Templates are basically empty lists that have been formatted and organised so you just have to fill in the blanks. A weekly task list has entries for every day of the week for example. This is a nice feature and it saves some a little time and effort and helps you to stay organised. There are many examples and use cases on www.taskade.com/templates

    I'd suggest Trello over Asana if you prefer a Kanban style view of tasks that you need to manage across your team.

    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.

    Hygger

    The All-in-one Product Management Platform

    Pavel Kukhnavets made this product
    I vote for the platform for growing companies- Hygger.io (https://hygger.io/ ) as the service provides the full range of options that product managers need: from friendly Kanban boards to the clear roadmap and the tool for prioritization features (the backlog priority chart).

    Lots of great little benefits, but what really makes Slack stand out is the almost limitless integrations you can out together.

    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.

    Perfect for product and Feedback !
    CommentsShare
    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.

    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.

    Workflowy

    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.

    Roadmap

    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

    TMetric

    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.

    Tonkean

    AI powered dashboard with automatic insights from your team

    Hannah White
    Hannah White16Marketing Manager · Written
    I would recommend trying out a platform like Tonkean. It pulls all of your favorite business tools into once place (like most dashboards), PLUS adds your teams context to it (unlike other dashboards). The most appealing factor is that your team doesn't even need to change their workflow. Tonkean's AI-powered chatbot reaches out to the owners you've assigned for status updates through their favorite communication tools (Slack, Teams or email). Then, based on their response, either updates the information in your dashboard (and by association your other tools) or just publishes the context that you need for the initiative you're tracking. There's a few examples of how product/project teams have been using the platform, available here: https://tonkean.com/templates/
