Ask DN: Advice on Project Management Tools

    Spreadsheets are an underrated tool in the creative community, but a tough way to manage a dynamic workload.

    I've been through most of the tools out there and I keep coming back to Asana. It's not bloated (Microsoft Project) and it's not too light (BaseCamp, Trello). It's focused on a simple list, which can have sublists. And the team can comment and attach assets at any level. They've also added a Gantt feature in one of the recent releases (I haven't tried it).

    After working in a spreadsheet, any good project / task management system might feel awkward at first. Any time I try a new system, I try to give myself at least two weeks to come to a conclusion.

      Great advice David! Thank you very much. I have looked at Asana a few times (just their website) but have never given a shot. I will try it out!
