In today’s business world, task management has a place above your standard calendar or written reminders. Having spent time working on a team in an office environment as well as at home at my own pace, I have a handle on what I need as well as suggestions for my clients to keep us all on task and communicating seamlessly.
The majority of my task management experience has been with Project Management Office (PMO) software:
Asana: Asana is used for creating individual tasks (cards) that can be assigned to one person at a time, though entire teams of people can view “boards.”
Trello: Trello is similar to Asana in that it involves tasks on cards. The views are more standard in Trello, whereas with Asana you have more options for viewing/organizing your own tasks.
Notion: This is more of an all in one tracking for timing, tasks, log-ins. It’s helpful for multiple involved in the same projects.
I also communicate with my clients via messaging platforms (such as Slack) in addition to email.
I find that the combination of software and messaging platforms help to keep us all on task, without cluttering our inbox with questions pertaining to projects we’re currently working on.
