@aureliovolle Of course this is the first reply! Notion is such a handy tool! I love how you can customize your boards for any purposes- that's what really sets it apart from other productivity tools. I've used its margin basement cousin Coda too - the experience is not nearly as smooth.

★ My best productivity tool is: ours, KosmoTime ✓ What it does: It's a calendar app that helps manage your tasks and block time for them directly in your calendar. It syncs with Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook. It has other cool features like the Mute Mode (mutes Slack notifications and blocks unrelated tabs when you need to focus on a specific task to prevent from context switching), and a Time Tracker.

TMetric - https://tmetric.com/ It's a time tracking app but it also supports team/task/project management and so I like I can have all data in one place.

@soylakate Thanks for sharing ! What is the best feature for you ?

@jacquelinclem Honestly, it's hard to pick just one. I like that TMetric has simple interface (I like minimalism :)), and it's pretty easy to navigate in the app to start the timer, to create tasks and projects, all is done intuitively.

I would say Avoma is great for productivity when it comes to online meetings like Zoom, Google Meet, etc. I’m a huge fan of the AI meeting note taking tools. And Avoma combines automated note-taking, conversation intelligence and cross-functional collaboration. If you want to check out: https://www.avoma.com/

I don't use Notion as a productivity tool, it might sound funny but I'm using it for what it was build for -- notes. My #1 productivity tool is Todoist, I just can't live without it. My #2 tool is PomoDone, having regular breaks keeps me sane.

★ My best productivity tool is: Productboard ✓ What it does: Specifically for building products, it provides very good tools for grouping together issues/tickets around components of your product, build timelines and roadmaps to understand delivery, and integrate customer feedback to help you prioritize tasks. I've used jira, github, gitlab, trello, and pivotal tracker before at different companies for this, and I found all of these difficult to track work that crosses teams or touches on multiple products. I've also found those tools hard to do prioritization because too many disparate tasks end up in one board, or the work for the sprint is spread across too many boards to see in one view.

@alejandro_cantarero1 know it too. Thanks for sharing :) ! What about asana ?
Building data products. CTO @ Nami ML.
@jacquelinclem Tried asana too, though the last time was a few years ago so I'm sure the product has changed. Still didn't find a way to solve my key challenges with other tools which are: - Prioritize tasks across multiple teams / products - Understand tasks that are blockers across teams - Deliver a clear roadmap to executives

Easy - Sublime Text. Close second place goes to Workflowy, which is basically an online, collaborative, improved version of Sublime (in regards to making TODO lists).
