This is not a sponsored post. This is just a plain and simple review of two tools I use every day, and think you should know about! Plus, they’re both free, and I thought, hey if you aren’t using them, you absolutely should.
- The first is workflowy.com. I don’t know about you, but I love to-do lists. There’s something really satisfying about figuring out what needs to get done, and then knocking it out. Workflowy is awesome for this. You can share your lists, you can give people read-only access or let them alter it. You can nest and nest and nest things, and workflowy hides them so you don’t get overwhelmed. You can add @ and # which I only do when I’m wearing my project manager hat and assigning people in my team to different tasks. I assign priority with a # and everyone can come take a look and work on the things with their name in the @ section. It’s great — you can access it anywhere, even on your phone, but just with a bookmark. If you don’t make lists, then … how do you make your life work? But if you do, and you’re using something else, try this. You might like it!
- The second is Dropbox, and yes, if you sign up through that link, you and I both get a bit of extra space, which is helpful, but not the reason I’m tooting their horn. They let you store documents on the cloud and on your local machines, so you don’t have to email yourself files or upload them to Google docs. I save a bunch of stuff on my Dropbox and then I can work remotely without having to bother anyone else.
That’s all. What tools do you use? Am I missing anything? Did you already know about these?
