Looking for a team management tool for remote working. (Finally starting my own business 🚀)

Hi everyone! I've been working for the last three months to start my own SaaS business and finally, I made it. 🙂🙃 Just started to form a team and we're 4 now and we do not expect to grow more than 10 people for the upcoming 6-12 months. It was easy to manage everything until now with WhatsApp groups but I need a team management tool to get everything more organized. I checked a couple of tools but they seem pretty much the same. So do you have any suggestions on which tool to use? Any suggestion or comment is welcomed. Thanks in advance!

Not for business stuff but for education, I use Notion. It has lovely features for educational use, and I believe that it will work for your team too. By the way, congrats and good luck!

Trello! It helped us a lot during this remote work time. It was a recurring saying in our weekly meetings that "if you want me to do something, just post it on my trello board" :)

@mert_akin Thanks a lot! Among the other options it seems the easier to use.

Team management tools are a bit overrated. There are a lot of useful tools that you can use, even a Google Spreadsheet works pretty well. It all comes to how well you are tracking those tools. You can use the best tool out there — unfortunately I don’t know which — but unless you have a someone who is managing it well, they become obsolete.

I haven’t personally used it but had a lot friends who used Monday.com, I guess it is worth checking.

I don't believe that there's a special tool for remote work. I believe all management tools are already suited for remote work, since it allows you to allocate work without directly seeing each other.

@masoudfatemi Thanks you very much. After all this time I still think Slack is a little bit confusing to use. But definitely will check Clubhouse!

I like to think of these in a few categories that I think can be important even for small teams. You might find that some tools work across multiple categories. Below are the categories I think about and some examples of products in each. - Communication. How are you communicating on a daily basis? Support for integration of important message / alerts from your main SaaS tools can be a big help here. Slack, Microsoft Teams - Task Management. Many options here that do a lot of different things. A simple spot to start is anything that provides a Kanban board. Kanban boards: Trello , Notion , Jira Tools that do more: Asana , monday.com - Knowledge Base. Where do you collect important information so people can find it? Notion , Confluence, Stack Overflow for Teams We happen to use: Communication: Slack Task Management: Trello / GitHub Projects Knowledge Base: Notion

@alejandro_cantarero1 That was a great explanation Alejandro, thank you very much. The question is more clear for me. I should be looking for a Kanban board. And I guess will be moving on with Trello.

Our team is using Monday, Slack and Notion. Slack is the most used tool in our team, Notions we use it for organizing or filing some documents. We started to use Monday recently but not that used to it.. maybe it's too much of team management tool for a team.

@bryanseok We are a small team for now, I guess Monday and Slack will be too much for team management for us as far as I see. But thanks a lot for helping out.

@bryanseok @egeyalcinkaya Good luck on your team! if I had to start a small team, I would just use Notion for filing and stacking up insights. And use other free desktop messenger for communication.

Monday, Slack, Microsoft Teams, Hubspot are all very popular ones if you are wanting a feature rich option and depending on your needs for it.

Congrats with this move! Try out Notion. We started with Trello. It was okay at the early stage. Don't forget to apply for perks as cash is the king for every startup ))

@victoria_duben I guess Notion is still an improving app. Trello seemed more stable to me. But thanks a lot for the recommendations. Do you have any perk recommendations?

Hassl is worth a look! Simple to use, super user-friendly and we're working on a new feature that'll majorly help small businesses plan their week to improve productivity. Plus, there's a chat option so no additional apps needed. We started with Monday and Slack too but it all got too overwhelming for us as a small business, which is why Hassl was built. Good luck with your new business! :)

Instead of paying for multiple products to have communication, documentation and so on, maybe give Jetbrain's new service a try. It's called "Space". It has everything you probably will ever need: https://www.jetbrains.com/space/ It's very cheap.
