BaseCamp is a must if you have a lot of little tasks to get done each day (that can slip your mind), and have to manage more than one person or even multiple teams of people.
I have EVERYTHING in my schedule laid out for me, and I LOVE that I can take a high-level view of my week to see which days are going to be the busiest. And team members assigning me tasks without having to email me is amazing, keeps the inbox much cleaner. I just see what my day looks like and get started.
I also think the applause feature is really cute, but I think I use it a lot more than my teammates. ;) I am always applauding everything they get done. Hahahaha. Positive reinforcement, right. Hahaha.
There are lots of PM tools (and I have used lots), but this one so far is my favourite. Great value for the price, and certainly the reason that I don't have anxiety attacks every day trying to remember what needs to be done and by when, and who was assigned what project.
Oh, and lastly - file management!! I am SUPER big on organization and I love that all the files I need for each project (and team) are in one place. I never have to go searching through my Google Drive again. A++
The only thing that bugs me right now is that I cannot set a recurring task, which means that I have to manually enter everything. I have things that I need to set for myself and my team that happen weekly - but in all honesty, it takes maybe 15 mins for me to set tasks for an entire month...and I am sure there will be a patch for that in the future.
Give this a try! They have a free trial, and I guarantee that once you get in there and start using it you'll be like me and sign up IMMEDIATELY after the trial ends. I had a little panic attack when I went to login and saw the "trial over" message...there was no way I was being kepy away from my perfectly organized projects. :)
Saves me time! Allows me to get a better picture of what is being accomplished every day, which is great to keep the positive vibes going. I love the organization element and knowing that everything I need is in one place. :) Such a great tool!
