    We use Basecamp for day-to-day task management – it’s useful particularly b/c we can loop clients into tasks directly and group To Do’s by project.

    Bitbucket is also a really good alternative to Github for WP projects – it works on a user limit rather than a repo limit so if you’ve got 50 WP projects then Github becomes far too expensive, whereas bitbucket might still be free if you’re only a small business.

    A good old Google Spreadsheet can still work very well as a snaglist too.

    One of the most powerful and comfortable tool of project management is Askcow – https://vimeo.com/64023809

    Nor Asana, nor Basecamp could measure up to Askcow. Supersonic tree of issues, carefully elaborated use cases and interface, bookmarks and real-time notifications made this tool a sweet-heart for any project manager.

    And of course, forget about F5! All information updates instantly in your dashboard, so this is a fully interactive tool, not like JIRA.

    Price for askcow is ridiculously low in compare to Asana, Wrike and Basecamp, so everyone can acquire an enterprise solution enough powerful to handle managing even a huge fleet of spaceships, not to mention art studios or IT companies – https://vimeo.com/59400005

    I was also faithful Workflowy “follower” for some time… but after I tried Trello for the 1st time I realized that I can now drive a “rocket” and since I never looked back.

    Trello is an amazing (free) software ans so versatile that people can use it for everything: from the personal TO-DO list/project up to very complex business project with many participants. And the learning curve is so fast – as like you are using it your whole life. Not to mention constant improvements, according to users’ requests thus making it even more flexible and powerful and yet, without losing primary and basis usage simplicity.
    My Recommendation: TRY IT, ASAP! And probably you’ll ask yourself: “where have you been all my life” 🙂
    PS I’m not affiliate in ANY WAY with Trello company, just one extremely satisfied (everyday) user.
    Regards, Ivica

      Trello cannot handle complex projects because it doesn’t allow task decomposition, and it always painful for project managers. Decent tool for online collaboration has to support work breakdown structure, and, sorry for Trello, it is not.

    Thx for your opinion, I appreciate it, but I managed to overcome this Trello “restriction” by using one Trello Board as “hub board” for main tasks links and then into detailed tasks decomposition, not too many levels below, but enough to have a purpose… Yeah, there are some other (free) on line PM tools, like Asana, but I’m holding with Trello – I don’t have to explain much to tasks executors how to use it, it’s rather simple tool. There are some PROS and some CONS points, it just depends which one prevails for particular person.
    For what Jean need/want to do – Trello is more then enough 🙂

    Good article, thx Jean – basically people are saying: the best tool is the tool with which you feel most comfortable and useful, which depends on your way of thinking and working.So, it’s up to us to try them out and pick up the best one…. for us 🙂 If only there were more time to do all of that, uh…

    If you’d like a tool for managing your time and projects, you can use this web-application inspired by David Allen’s GTD:

    GTDAgenda

    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, and a calendar.
    Syncs with Evernote and Google Calendar, and also comes with mobile version, and Android and iPhone apps.

    I always saw repeated names like trello, asana etc in the list of project management tools. There are many tools apart from them like proofhub.com . You must give it a try.
