Managing multiple projects successfully starts with proper organization and careful planning. Something every project manager should think about is the best type of tools for staying organized and easily finding all of the right project information.
Recently, a PM in our Slack team asked which tools we use to keep track of all of the URLs and instances when dealing with multiple projects.
There are dozens of great tools out there, and I’ve written about many of them in our project management tool reviews. You’ll find detailed reviews of tools for team collaboration, overviews of the best project scheduling tools, and many others. And especially if you’re looking for ways to manage your multiple projects, I’d take a look at our guide to choosing the best project portfolio management software.
But sometimes, the simplest solution is really the best. So, in this quick video we go over a few simple, familiar tools and how we use them in creative ways, such as:
- Confluence (a wiki for editing and updating project information)
- Google apps like Google Sheets and Google Docs (which work well if you don’t have any security issues with your clients)
- Google Keep (useful for storing passwords and links)
- Dropbox Paper (file sharing and collaboration)
- LinkedIn (for team member profiles)
