Discussion on: I Need a Task Manager -- what do you recommend?

I have experimented with probably every system out there, from Emacs ORG mode to Trello to GitHub Tasks to Basecamp and everywhere in between. I am really big on personal knowledge management, so I have been trying to find a system to organize my knowledge and keep track of side projects and life in general.

Notion turned me off with their refusal to implement an API and a roadmap that no one seems to have asked for. It is also a very closed-off platform and sharing things outside of the platform is difficult.

I finally settled upon ClickUp. It is really simple to use and incredibly customizable. There's a Chrome extension you can use to add tasks or clip relevant web pages, and it also has a decent mobile app (at least on Android). It's only $5/mo for the basic plan, and there is an API which makes me happy. It integrates with lots of time tracking systems and GitHub/GitLab, and they have been releasing features I didn't know I wanted almost every week!

Hey, I've been using ClickUp since you recommended it. It's a great piece of software and will be recommending we use it at work as well.

Thanks for the recommendation!

Cool, Thanks for the info, I will check out ClickUp. I'm a bit hesitant to pay a monthly fee, although If it works I might be interested! :)

There's also a free version, you are limited to 100MB of storage and miss out on the integrations, but you can write as many tasks as you want.

I have found it cheaper than a lot of competing solutions, I am about to start recommending we use it at work for project management because it's just so easy to work with versus clicking through 200 screens to make a task in Azure DevOps.

I've checked it out, It is quite good man, even the free version... It has almost everything I wanted, thanks a lot!

I might even pay the fee If the integrations are worth it :)
