    Even though I did ask the question, I'm always looking for ways to optimize my workflow. Currently we are working on Trello. It's fantastic for organizing your content production schedule and getting all stakeholders involved in content creation.

    Love that you can switch between Kanban, Calendar, and table views. I use a template that Jimmy Daly shared.

    Zenkit

    The project management tool that grows with you

    Prior to working for Zenkit, I used the app's Kanban board feature to manage the content of my various freelance writing gigs. It's a great feature for creating an editorial/content calendar, and it can be easily switched to a calendar view in literally one click. Super handy.

    Zenkit have a clear and efficiency UX, which also allow you to create a project tasks that link with calendar function. Amazing sync feature.

    Notion 2.0

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

    Alexander SpoorFounder of Uitgeverij Spoor · Edited
    In Notion, you can make a database (spreadsheet) and fill it with text (captions), media (photos and videos), dates, tags, links, checkboxes, and more. Then, you can view all that date in different views, such as calendar view, which allows you to see your entries on a large calendar, and kanban view (think Trello). Notion can be used to do many different things, so you'll have to do a little work to get things setup the way you want, but once you do... it's magical ✨. Collaboration is easy too, and built in everywhere. Best features in this scenario: tables 🏓, checkboxes ☑️, calendar view 🗓, the option to turn data entries into full pages 📑 and great pricing 🤑.

    Flow-e is definitely a good fit. It gives you a Kanban-style board (To-do, In progress, Done) and there is a timeline view at the bottom of your workflow. :)

    Asana

    The task management tool, completely redesigned

    We used this for task and project management first and then decided to try it for our podcast and blog content planning/calendar. It works great. Kanban view with calendar 👍 amazing if you already use Asana for other stuff 😊

  14. I don't agree that modern tendency to write reviews on each thing is bad or irritating. It's good that people practise their language and learn how to build sentences correctly, express their point of view and so on. Unfortunately, many testimonials are still looking chaotic and mediocre. That's why sometimes you have to use different widgets, like this one https://elfsight.com/testimonial... to make the testimonials on your site look more respectable. It's always nice when your customers have a good command of the language, isn't it?
