What You Said: How You Organize and Track your Projects

By Jason Fitzpatrick on March 9th, 2012


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 a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
