    Trello

    Organize anything, together

    Joshua Tab.Crafting Meja and Walk · Written
    Trello is my favorite productivity tool to organize my ideas and classify them

    I would use Trello it is quite easy to use and its Free too. The best way to approach this is getting into the mindset of splitting up tasks and be diligent in moving items around the board otherwise it can be quite easy to just forget about trello and realise you haven't moved items around but the project has moved along .

    Notion 2.0

    The all-in-one workspace - notes, tasks, wikis, & databases

    In terms of planning and outlining an idea, nothing is better than Notion. It's clean, simple, and most importantly, gets the job done in terms of feature-set.

    I love Notion for organising all my planning docs. Also, really handy for putting together web page wireframes. I'll use the simple layout tools to put together the copy for a page in a rough layout, then pass over to the designer on my team. They can make it look pretty from there!

    Zenkit

    The project management tool that grows with you

    Jessi Lu6Change the future. · Written
    Hey, I would recommend our tool Zenkit. You can start with brainstorming in the mind map view and afterwards switch to the kanban board or table to organize your tasks and ideas. It´s easy to use with a lot of features for individual use. If you work with a team - no problem, you can assign tasks, communicate and track the process of your project. With Zenkit it´s possible to build your own database, set references to other collections or upload files.

    This one is pretty cool! The freemium concept is even more appealing - with notes, subtasks, lists and forums listed nicely. Give it a try!

  6. I would definitely recommend integrating JIRA and Confluence, as combined together they are perfect! You have all your issues on one page, you can easily manage the sprints; there is a really useful workflow system, as well as reports & charts; overall you have all your business processes perfectly structured and executed.

    Codegiant

    Beautiful yet powerful tools for agile project management

    It's trending on ProductHunt today so it's worth talking about. Been using Codegiant since a week and it seems a great tool for agile project planning and management. Having a bunch of features like documentation, issue tracking, hosted git repositories and continuous integration, makes Codegiant a brilliant choice for end-to-end project management until project delivery. It is truly the only platform that we need to ship agile project :)

    Whimsical

    The visual workspace for teams.

    Starting with some simple notes in mind-map form is ideal. Whimsical is my latest favorite mapping tool – it's the cleanest-looking and most intuitive! Even better, they have wireframes and sticky notes coming soon.

    This bad boy is new on the market and recently launched on Product Hunt. We have all heard of Trello and Asana as the best management tools out there. And while that maybe true, it's always better to check out emerging platforms with greater benefits each year. You'll find nTask easy to use, simple to explore and most importantly, soft on your budget (considering you can avail ALL features on a Free Account). Check it out !

    ✅ From todo list to daily kanban 📅

    Biraj Ghosh made this product
    You can visually organize things by color coding, use multiple tags to filter lists then use kanban view to work on them, also you can use daily kanban if you prefer tasks by date.
