I’ve mentioned a few online communication tools in previous articles, mainly concerned with the top priority when teams are dispersed: keeping discussions going. They do have limitations when it comes to other business needs however, so I thought I’d look into services and apps which go beyond maintaining a dialogue.
For project management, Quire is well reviewed. “The highlight focus of Quire is the simplicity and ease of project collaborations”, according to this review. Also look at Asana – “A very customizable platform for assigning and tracking tasks and ensuring that team members have a balanced workload”, says this review.
Finally, for scheduling, it’s worth looking at Calendly – a service to help you “schedule meetings without the back-and-forth emails”. Curiously, with many businesses split up and not meeting physically, there’ll probably be more need to schedule group meetings than before – it’s just that they’ll be online. “If you work on a team with others, you might find Calendly’s extra features for teams beneficial”, says this review.
Stay safe everyone.
