Hi @Evgeny Belenky ​,

Couple of tools that I have seen being used by my colleagues to name a few with the features

Agile Project Management Tools

Now let’s explore a list of top Agile project management tools for small and large businesses.

1. ProofHub

ProofHub is a smart and feature-rich agile project management software used by leading organizations. Teams can effortlessly share ideas, compile documents, start discussions, and move forward with this collaborative tool.

The software comes integrated with all the necessary tools and features that you would need to make your projects successful using Agile methodology. Additionally, it is also apt for handling your projects using other project management techniques as well, such as critical path method (CPM), getting things done (GTD), etc.

As for organizing tasks and streamlining all the project work, you can use ProofHub’s Kanban boards and Gantt charts. With Kanban boards, you will be able to define all the workflow stages of a project and see tasks moving across different stages in the form of cards. On the other hand, Gantt charts allow you to visualize the timeline of a project and ensure timely completion of all the project work. You can schedule tasks, associate milestones with tasks, define task dependencies, and see who is handling a particular task all using a Gantt Chart.

Here are some more things related to task management that you can do without breaking a sweat using ProofHub:

  • Create tasks and divide them into smaller and manageable subtasks

  • Select one or more assignees for a task

  • Set start and end dates for each task

  • Set up recurring tasks

  • Attach files and add comments to tasks

  • Add labels to prioritize tasks and make it easier to organize them

As agile methodology also lays emphasis on team communication and feedback, ProofHub emerges as the perfect agile project management tool with its built-in chat interface and online proofing tool.

At any point in time, you can use the in-built chat interface to connect with other members of your team. You can either go for a quick one-on-one chat or select multiple team members to initiate a group conversation for discussing ideas, reporting work status, etc.

The online proofing tool incorporated within the ProoHub’s framework unlocks real-time feedback, suggestions, and work approval for your team. You can simply open a design or a document file within ProofHub to proof it and add comments in case you have some feedback to share. While proofing, you can use markup tools to annotate files and highlight specific portions where changes need to be made. To make the decision maker aware that all the suggestions and requested modifications are made successfully, team members can mark a suggestion or feedback as resolved.

All in all, ProofHub will make the agile methodology more meaningful for your projects and you will get better outputs.

2. Wrike

Effective project management is all about making instant changes where needed in order to save up on costs and increase the revenues. Wrike is ideal for centralizing and connecting multiple projects and spiking up your team’s efficiency. It gets a lot of bad rep for its utilitarian interface, but just like with teamweek’s tool, setting up your project tasks will be a walk in the park. Although Wrike is up to date with their releases and enhancements, their mobile versions get a bit of a lag in the process. This might frustrate if you expect to see changes on your mobile devices at the same time as they happen on your desktop.

3. Smartsheet

Smartsheet defines how teams collaborate on projects and tasks such as managing the operation, tracking marketing campaigns, and planning events. Smartsheet considers the various solutions for business including different roles and industries. It unifies cross-functional priorities, has free and open collaboration, and allows you to create teams without limitations.

4. Active Collab

Active Collab was devised as a great solution for businesses. With Active Collab you will not have to keep your clients on the sidelines anymore. You can determine what every user can see and access, keep them informed and shared what’s important. It offers project planning, allows to share files, time tracking, expense tracking, brainstorming, discussing important topic and more.

5. Asana

From start to finish, Asana has the feature your team needs ㅡ from Boards to Timelines.

LeanKit, Jira and Planner. 
I use LeanKit currently so I can set up and track sprints and the cards within sprints. 

You can also @ people on the card to send them a reminder.
