How do you manage to-do tasks at your company?
How you manage to-do items on your tasks/checklist? Please let me know if you manage the task checklist manually on writing pads or you use any to-do list apps.
Well, there are a number of todo apps that prove to be pretty handy. I personally use Asana where you can allocate tasks to a team, tag and un-tag, mark as complete, incomplete and pending. One of the best features of Asana is that it links to your email and notifies you directly via email.
We use Trello, Google Sheets and Slack to manage our work and create transparency across teams.
Trello helps us create these cards along with due-dates and have other members collaborate.
Google Sheets is used when we have a whole host of tasks and need to prepare calendars for editorial and social media.
Slack allows you to set reminders and work collaboratively.
However, I have heard of companies that also use Sticky notes to keep things fun.
Personally, to manage my tasks, I use Todoist and write down my daily tasks on my whiteboard.
While this isn't a definitive answer, it helps to know that there are software applications out there that can help you track the progress of your team's tasks.
In my app development company, our production team prefers using JIRA to mark tasks and monitor their progress, but our marketing team prefers the use of ASANA.
Both software does a good job as reminders for daily tasks, generally telling you what you need to do for the day, with the ability to integrate into your email and calendars.
But I guess it'll all come down to your team's individual preferences and working style.
Hi Josh - We've gone back and forth with a few different tools. We started on Google Sheets, then moved to Asana. Over the past few months we switched to BaseCamp, which as of now, we've liked the most.
I like to use an online calendar that is shareable with group email accounts and such. There are some out there that are pretty awesome.
Depending on the level of sophistication you require, Jira, Trello, Slack and Microsoft Teams can all be used to good effect. Best to go onto YouTube to see how they all work and decide from there.
