While working in different spaces, it is vital to maintain communication and coordination, and to understand where is everybody with their work. Individual and team work flows are vital to an organization, and the following tools can help us better organize them during this period.
Slack is a collaboration hub that can replace email to help you and your team work together seamlessly. A Slack workspace is made up of channels, where team members can communicate and work together. Its features include: organized conversations, searchable history, connected apps, slack calls, and more. The best part? You can use it entirely free (unless you are looking for really specific features).
Padlet is a software people use to make and share content with others. Somewhere between a doc and a full-fledged website builder, Padlet empowers everyone to make the content they want, whether it’s a quick bulletin board, a blog, or a portfolio. The “Vanilla” (or basic) version is completely free, but it also offers paid solutions for schools and companies, with specific features.
Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. It can be visualized as a white board filled with lists of sticky notes, with each note as a task for you and your team, that can have photos, attachments from other data sources, documents, and a place to comment and collaborate with your teammates. Trello is completely free, but it has limitations in the number of available boards and team members.
