Asana Sets Task Based Project Management Standard

Asana may not be the meaning of life, but it gets pretty close to it. Rarely have I seen a service that can assist pretty much every aspect of a lifestyle from the basics to complete bells and whistles events.

I first came across Asana many years ago when I reviewed it for my previous blog, Web2 and More. Back then I abandoned it in favour of Todoist, a service I still use today as a premium subscriber.  I have waxed lyrically about Todoist here on many occasions and I cannot see me replacing it any time soon. Since then Asana has grown into a fully-fledged project management system. Its ingenious design and developed modules mean you can utilise it at pretty much any experience level you wish.

Trello Kanban Turbocharges Productivity

Trello Logo

Trello has been around for many years and it is highly regarded as a task management/project management tool. Some years back, I was doing consultancy for an organisation and tried to get members of the marketing and communications team to use Trello as it was ideal for planning and tracking projects and tasks within those projects. However, I did manage to write up a review.

Sadly, other members of the team were total Luddites and they resorted to emails as their tool of choice! So, my premium subscription of Trello lapsed and that wasn’t it until I read about the fact that the service had been updated. that I revisited it.

Spark Email Doesn’t Light My Fire

Spark Email
Lockdown boredom means that I am always looking around for new apps and services, especially email apps, and that is how I came across Spark which, on the face of it, looked to be very promising. However, as I experimented with it, it became clear that Spark and I were never going to be friends. This doesn’t mean it is a bad email package, just that the way I work with email and Spark didn’t have matching personalities or methodologies.

TickTick Update – Better Than I Thought

When I first started looking at TickTick I looked at it purely as a to-do task management system.  I really liked the calendar option but had terrible trouble with syncing Google Calendar with TickTick and Business Calendar on my Android devices. So much so, I have to admit, that I deleted my premium account and walked away in a huff! Once I calmed down, a week or so later, I decided to revisit TickTick and I am so glad I did and, once the support team re-established my premium account, I was up and running.
