What's the best way to manage tasks???

12 replies
Can anyone recommend a online site or way of managing people and their tasks that doesn't cost anything? I'm mainly just looking for something very simple, which I can post tasks to, and or have others be able to log into it to see and do the tasks for say a collaborative or work flow system. Does Google have something like that maybe?

    I just use Excel with each hour on the left column, and the tasks for the day on the top. Really basic, but I can see everything that I need to do for the day and then highlight it once done. To be honest, I get confused with most other software programs. I over-process everything. I just like to see everything in a spreadsheet format at a glance, but that's just me.

  • I like to use a software called Clocking It. You can create a bunch of tasks and then track time against them, setting deadlines and what not. It's exceptionally useful and highly recommended.

    Depending on the task you could get a timer and set it and an hour and devote that entire hour to getting a particular task done.

    I just recently started using something called Catch (catch.com). In my opinion, it's one of the best in terms of simplicity and UI. It's for phone and internet, and you can share different "spaces" as they call them with others. So I think it could work for you.

    I've tried a lot of these things by the way.

    Depends upon the kinds of tasks you're planning to manage. If you just want to handle documents well, I'd suggest using Google Docs and Skype as the communication tool. It works wonders, really!

    Your best bet for free tools that you could use for a collaborative workflow is the suite of Google Apps.

    As already mentioned above, you can use Google Calendar along with Google Drive. They are all free. All you need is a Google account and you can access all the collaborative features.

    Alternatively, you can also test out Time Doctor free for 30 days. A number of warriors use that for productivity and time management of teams. Works really well if you are serious with tracking each one's productivity.
