Earlier this week we asked you to share your tips, techniques, and tools for organizing and tracking your projects. Now we’re back to highlight the tools you use.
It’s easy to become buried under half-finished projects and well meaning but meandering to-do lists. Here are some of the ways your fellow readers stay on top of their projects.
Christian Sheehy uses TiddlyWiki as his master bucket:
I use TiddlyWiki for just about everything. Daily journals, project tracking, and reference items. It’s searchable and extremely powerful once you add some plugins (advanced search, time tracking, checklists).
Marc Caballero turns to the open-source community for help:
I use CLOCKINGit — opensource and offers both download & hosted solution.
It’s close to Redmine, but I find the interface & tools helpful with team productivity (timer, graphs, reports, team chat on all pages, files, wiki, users/clients management, …)
Jeff opts for an tool that integrates with the various buckets he uses:
I’ve been using IQTELL. Pretty good project and task management tools, and integrates with my email, Evernote, and calendars.
Have a trick, technique, or tool to share? It’s not too late to join the conversation; sound off in the comments below with your favorite project management tool!
Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on Google+ if you'd like.
