Let's talk about the best productivity tools on the internet that can boost your development. These are the tools that can help you in time management, project management and tracking the process from the start to the end of the project development.
Trello is an amazing collaboration tool that fits in almost any project types. Angular project, web project, unity project...etc. You can manage task, Due dates of those tasks, Assign those tasks to a person, Keep track of the process... and much more.
Trello is a web-based Kanban-style list-making application which is a subsidiary of Atlassian.
It is not the only one that provides these functionality though. There are many others that you may use but Trello has been around for a long time and I'm familiar with it as I use it in almost all my angular/web/mobile/game projects.
The best alternative that I can think of is Jira. The advantage with Jira is that it integrates your repository seamlessly with it.
Although this falls into the category of "UI/UX" designing but still I think it does wonders with my work flow because it helps a lot in project planning phase. It is a very easy tool that can be easily adapted by you or your designer. Hense, One of the "Best Productivity Tools" 😁.
It helps a lot when you are in the definition phase where you define the scope of your project so that it becomes easy peasy for you to schedule the project development and other resources.
Good project management and team management means all tasks are defined and everyone knows what they are suppose to do and what is the deadline for each task. Now, While Todoist does all of these I would totally recommend Trello over this except one little thing... "Its so damn simple". Its adding tasks to your todo list on your os x.
It lets you create projects and define tasks under and then sub-tasks under those. And it does it all with simplest interface I've ever seen. Kudos to the Todoist team.👍
If you don't like learning new tools and stick to the traditional way of managing projects and communication with your team, Nothing can be better than emails 📧. Its easy, persistent and you always get informed about the latest updates from your team and to top it off, almost all email services are free these days 😍.
But just emailing is not enough for a smooth work flow. You need a better client for that. Microsoft Office Outlook is just the right tool for that. I personally use emails to manage all my projects and team communication as a fall back when I'm travelling around or something.
There are many tools out there that can help you in precisely managing project and communicating with your team. In the end, It fall all onto you to know which one fits best in your scenario. Anything that speeds up your existing workflow can be a good option. You can try these tools and if you have a better alternatives that was not mentioned, Drop a comment below in comment section, Its free and secure😉.
See you next time, Thanks for the visit. 🖖
