What project management tools would you recommend for Product Designers to help stay organized?
https://todoist.com is our favourite tool. It is constantly updated and super flexible to adapt to anybody's workflow!
It's really a matter of preference. There are a lot of good tools out there. Depending on how you (and your team) work, you'll probably find that the best tool is a constellation of todo and document sharing apps.
The best light-weight task or story management tools I've used:
- RememberTheMilk (if they ever release the private beta)
And there's a really good story for putting Google Sheets to work for high-level roadmap exercises. Spreadsheets still have their place.
If you want to go the heavy-weight route, Take a look at Jira and Confluence.
And don't forget the current superstar of communication: Slack. I have bots posting to dedicated project channels to keep every one up to speed on the myriad services in play so I don't have to remember to do it manually.
I love asana but it has so many "layers" to it, I need to switch!
