If you're looking to truly track your tasks, then Range is the software you're looking for.
Why? Not all tasks happen in one place!
Remember how we said that the average team member flips between apps a 1000 times a day? Range helps solve for that.
Range integrates with 75+ tools -- including project management software like Asana or ClickUp, Google Docs, Google Calendar, Microsoft Teams, Dropbox, Github, and more.
How to use Range for task tracking:
Start your day by adding your key tasks. Either directly input them into Range or grab them from your project management tool of choice, such as Asana, ClickUp, Notion, or JIRA. Connect Range to 75+ tools, and bring in work from multiple sources.
Have an important meeting?Add that calendar event to your check-in and provide the key details about what you're sharing to the stakeholders.
ClickUp is designed to help teams plan and track projects. As such, its features revolve around the ability to break big projects down into smaller elements. ITs feature set has grown larger and is now one of the most feature-rich planning tools.
Plan tasks in projects but use different views (Board, list, box) to understand who is working on what & the amount of work they have
Create a doc to share project details
Share and map out workflows with Whiteboards
Use the dashboard to understand how projects are progressing & who is working on what
Create Gantt charts/timelines to see if work is on time and on schedule
Coda is an open-doc platform, much like Notion or Google Docs. Their database functionality is more robust, and their "packs" allow you to integrate a wider variety of tools. They have several task tracking templates that may be helpful for your team.
Need a simple personal to-do list or something more to share tasks with your team? Todoist functions in both capacities. Their personal list is great for shopping or groceries, or you can outline more tasks for a complex project.
Its single view feature is could be a blessing to you -- or a curse to others.
Basecamp is more of an all-in-one solution for work, especiallly around remote communication. You can create tasks, but then chat about how the work is progressing. Their blend of chat and message boards allows you to track tasks in a more formal way or casually discuss it.
A newer task management software, Infinity mirrors ClickUp + Trello in many ways. It has flexibility with many views, including tables, lists, boards, and more. It seems more focused than ClickUp with lots of AP integrations, so if that's appealing to you in a team setting, then give Infinity a try.
How do you choose task tracking software?
Task tracking software should help you coordinate your workflows, with features that help you check-in with teammates, assign tasks, schedule work, and more.
Before choosing a tool centered on check-ins, docs, or classic task management software, consider these questions for task tracking:
How do you let others know what you're working on?
How do you surface what you hope to accomplish vs what you actually accomplish?
What about meetings? How do those fit in your workflows (for notes, action items, and tasks?)
How will teams work asynchronously--both with their communication and their files + tasks?
How is your planning tool a help and not a hindrance that interferes with productivity?
How will you build a custom workflow that has the integrations you need?
How will report and analyze project metrics and set goals?
