10 Tools for Organizing Virtual Work
In an earlier post, I shared ten online tools to help with virtual work such as video creation and online meetings. In this post, I want to focus on tools that help in organizing virtual work. Many of these have free options.
- Trello: In my opinion, this is one of the best free tools to organize projects and work collaboratively.
- Evernote: A great tool for note-taking and managing to do lists.
- Airtable: A great way to keep track of tasks and communicate with colleagues.
- Momentum: This is a Chrome extension where you can manage your to do lists.
- ClickUp: This is an app where you can organize all of your work from documents, chat, and tasks.
- Asana: This is a platform that is primarily beneficial for teams to organize their work and collaborate.
- Box: Is a great place to securely store and share files. Individual accounts have a free option.
- Slack: This is a great tool at any time, but particularly useful for remote work. It is a great tool for team communication.
- Confluence: This tool has a variety of templates to help organize notes and other documents. It also allows for collaboration.
- OneNote: A robust digital notebook where you can organize content and collaborate with others.
I hope these resources are helpful. Stay well.
