    Perfect to-do lists for team collaboration

    I want to share my experience of using Trello. I like this product very much for its native UX and simplicity. My team of the Marketing department uses it daily for planning our tasks. You can quickly create, edit and move the cards with tasks. The best things are assigning tasks to team members, crossing the completed tasks, and viewing the progress that changes as you mark a task as done! Nice tool for to-do lists!

    Great planning tool for simple project planning and task management

    Trello is really great compared with your average todo list, Excel spreadsheet, or planning tool. Unless your needs are super complex or your list of tasks is longer than a few hundred items, I'd say start with Trello until you need something else. If you're in a domain where there's good planning tools or you're tracking a ton of items, e.g. issue tracking for software development, then it's worth doing a more detailed evaluation of alternatives for you.

    Simple visual task management, but no project planning or people management

    Trello works really well for simple visual task management.

    Everyone on your team can quickly see what’s happening in the project and what tasks need to be done.

    It works really well for small teams with simple projects and tasks. But for large teams working on several projects, Trello can quickly become cluttered.

    However, compared to Asana and Toggl Plan, Trello falls short at project planning and team management.

    There’s no way to see the project timeline and keep track of milestones.

    You also won’t be able to quickly see who’s available, who's working and who’s on vacation, making it difficult to manage team workloads.

  • How can I motivate myself to complete my 2d video game?
    Start with small ideas that you find fun and then try to separate what you need to do (using something like Trello for example). - Source: Reddit / about 22 hours ago
  • What planning tools do you use to manage projects?
    I am not aware of any software or webapp that would provide a good gantt chart. There are a lot of free stuff but gantt chart seems to always be available after subscription. One way is to be a little bit of a villain and get your hands on a cracked version of MS Project Manager or something. Maybe consider staying away from a gantt chart? There is a lot of simple and useful task tracker stuff like Trello, that... - Source: Reddit / 5 days ago

  • 1,000 Zombies in Unity
    I use for all of my projects; it's barebones but that is why I like it. It's a great way to keep track of your progress, store notes and links to tutorials/etc, and if you use checklists on a card then checking off items provides something akin to a gamedev XP bar as go. - Source: Reddit / 18 days ago

  • How do you design/prepare an app you are going to build?
    Yes. I need to see my progress so far and what I have left. It helps me feel accomplished and manage my time. It's also beneficial to make this list because you might not have the skillset to start on a task you really want to start on, and with a concrete list, you can easily find other components to work on in the meantime. I recommend Trello for this. - Source: Reddit / 19 days ago

  • virtual "paper edit" software?
    You didn't say what platform you're working on but on Mac I use TaskPaper for creating paper cuts or rough outlines. I also use Trello for creating a virtual card corkboard to keep a check on my structure. - Source: Reddit / 26 days ago
  • Advice needed!
    I worked through the same issues. Today, I use my digital calendar to plan upcoming to-dos (ex. Recurring reminder to check car fluids), Trello to log notes about to-dos (ex. Actually checked fluids on x date, oil was low so keep an eye on that), and a paper journal for my thoughts and emotions (ex. I maintenanced the car today and it was a nice to spend some time outside to myself). Hope this helps! - Source: Reddit / 26 days ago
