For those of you who don’t manage full blown projects but do have a ton of (your own) tasks to manage, what software do you use, if any?
The only real task manager features I’ve ever used were in MS Project, when I had to either review and propose changes to a PJM, and on some occasions when I found myself playing a PJM role. I hated the software, but knew my way around it. On a few occasions, I’ve participated in Basecamp projects, but didn’t really enjoy the experience. Where I work currently no one uses project management software/systems or even utilize PJM concepts (unfortunately) and because of how extremely fluid things are here, I haven’t had to resort to task management software.
Until somewhat recently, when I began to accumulate a larger numbers of tasks (associated with web dev/design and building systems) than usual, all with very short deadlines and all at once. I needed something extremely simple and flexible, that could easily export to and import from Excel. I’m the only audience, but I may occasionally email lists out to others when necessary.
Google Tasks was interesting, but I hated the interface until I found GTasks on Android, Chrome and Firefox. Now I’m in love, but I still don’t have export functionality (just import via https://import-tasks.appspot.com). I have a Mac at work, but only use Windows in Parallels, plus a couple of PCs and my Android phone. Android/Browser/Cloud works best for me.
What do you guys use?
