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.

    Zenkit

    The project management tool that grows with you

    Jessi Lu8Change the future. ยท Written
    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.

    • 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!

    GitHub Projects

    GitHub takes on Trello with new project management tools

    Eugen OpreaCreator and Co-founder ยท Written
    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.

    Organize anything, together

    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.

      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.

      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!

    The cleanest, most versatile and customizable workspace you will ever find. Could be used for anything from a simple to-do list to an agile sprint project! Itโ€™s very powerful, more powerful than Trello.
