If you’re using Quickbase you know of some of the typical struggles with that software. Here are a few similar but different project management software that you’ll probably enjoy more.
Asana is built for you to keep track of yourself, your team, and your projects, without ever moving back to email. So, the app gives you everything in one place. With conversations, tasks, and files together, you’ll never hop back and forth again.
Plus, team leaders can keep an eye on who should do what, via built-in task assignment and monitoring. With its super integrations, Asana also connects to what you already use.
From Dropbox to Zapier, to Instagantt and GitHub, Asana’s got your back.
If this sounds good, here’s the full down low on their features. (Pricing details here.)
I can’t describe Trello very well.
So you know what, screw it. The Trello website’s already described it for me.
In the words of their copywriter, “Trello is anything you want it to be—a lesson planner, a community bulletin, a repository for inspiration. We support the way you think, not the other way around.”
At the heart of that proposition is its main feature - the card.
Cards are little snippets, either tasks, thoughts, or nuggets of whatever’s on your mind. You organize the cards into lists, and that’s basically it. Maximum flexibility, max intuitiveness.
Attached to the card is an ability to add comments, checklists, a due date - all the normal task management features. There’s also a nice progress bar to gamify things. If you think about it, Trello really is whatever you want it to be.
And best of all - it’s free. You only pay for upgrades to Trello Gold, or to Business Class for organizations. For a fuller tour, you can check out this page.
More than 360 million to-dos have been created via Wunderlist.
The reason? It’s everything you could ask for in a task manager.
Wunderlist gives you tasks, reminders, due dates, notes, recurring to-dos, cloud sync, lists, and even support for mailing tasks to the app. Upgrade to Wunderlist Pro, and you get even more: comments, task assignment, unlimited subtasks, and files.
With that many features, the Wunderlist folks aren’t kidding when they say, “Plan for anything, collaborate with anyone, access from anywhere.”
Plus points for design too - Wunderlist is a beautiful piece of software.
The Todoist website says it all: you get a to-do list that’s fast, intuitive and beautiful.
So for everyone who wants a clean app, one that keeps your focus on just tasks, Todoist is for you. With a design that looks like your email inbox, it’s familiar, and easy to get started.
Once you do start using, that’s where the feature set comes in.
For one, you get human due dates. You can input dates like “Monday at 2 pm” or “every Friday” and the app gets it perfectly. Aside from that, Todoist also gives you subtasks and projects, sharing and collaboration, real-time sync, and even a way to visualize your productivity, via Todoist Karma.
All in all, it stacks up nicely against the other apps in this list, with plus points for its design.
If you a want a to-do list that supports how your brain works, get Trello. If you’re looking to collaborate via a project-management-slash-to-do app, grab Asana. If it’s features and design you’re going for, your best bet is Wunderlist. And if you’re looking for simplicity, a human touch, and great looks, Todoist is for you.
