What is the best task management tool for startup teams?

I have been trying quite a few ways to manage our team's tasks. However, we keep missing the deadlines we set mainly due to unexpected things happen along the way. It is not easy to update the whole schedule whenever we want to change the plan as well. In the end, we turn back to the traditional stickers and stick all the tasks on the wall which is not very environmentally friendly ๐Ÿ˜‚.... Anyone has good recommendations? especially for startup team. Thanks.

    Taskade is a lightweight PM tool designed for startups and and distributed teams. You can use it as a unified collaboration hub for team tasks, notes, and video conferencing. Each chat refers back to the task list, board, or mind map.

    Zenkit is a great tool to organize your team tasks. Every team member can use the view which he or she likes the most. Switch between a list, kanban board, table, calendar or the mind map. Assign tasks and track your progress, communicate with your team and share files. It has a lot of features like due dates but the UI is clean and easy to use.

    For our development team, we use GitHub Projects because is right there on GitHub. Also, one thing that I've been doing wrong that leads to missing deadlines is continuing to add tasks to the queue. That is why right now, we are going to freeze projects and no longer add new tasks to them.

    For our Marketing stuff and other misc tasks, we use Trello, similar to sticky notes.
    Basically online sticky notes, but easier to see what needs to be done, what's currently being worked on, and what's finished. Integrate it with your personal to do list (I use Todoist) and your calendar using Zapier or IFTTT for best results.
