Instead of the traditional pen and paper method to jot down tasks, how about these two options below:
Google Tasks by Google is a to-do list or checklist your team can use to organize, manage, and edit their personal and work duties.
It is easy to use, syncs well with all devices, and integrates seamlessly with Gmail and Google Calendar. This personal task manager is perfect for your team if your business uses the Google platform.
The Google Tasks app for desktops allows team collaboration in real-time with the choice of sharing lists. The app is free to use but also present in the collection of Google Workspace (paid-for subscription) products and services.
Microsoft To-Do is one of the many productivity-enhancing tools from the Microsoft 365 collection. Your staff can use it to upgrade their productivity and task management skills.
This tool is a cloud-based checklist app that works perfectly on tablets, desktops, and smartphones. Your staff members can add as many tasks as they wish to a list, set due dates and reminders, and highlight their most important tasks.
To-Do is available for free and present in the Microsoft 365 paid-for subscription. It can be found on the web, Android, iPhone, and desktop versions.
Remote work requires efficient communication for any team to thrive; the type of tool you use can make or break effective communication.
At Vineforce, we use Microsoft Teams as our primary mode for chats, meetings, videoconferencing, and screen sharing. Slack is another alternative to consider depending on what your team needs.
During the recent pandemic, Teams became the fastest growing tool for business collaboration ever seen, becoming the rival of many. As a result, Teams has gained much popularity as the working from home trend exploded.
As the central hub for communication and collaboration in the Microsoft 365 collection, Microsoft Teams combines workplace chat, cloud storage video and audio conference, and app integration.
Teams are available in several different payment plans as well as a free version which typically offers enough features any workspace may need.
Teams are available as a free version, or you may purchase it alone. In addition, it can be purchased as a part of several other paid versions of the Microsoft 365 packages under the Home and Business categories.
This messaging tool is popular amongst remote teams with its chat/channel features and user-friendly interface. Remote teams can chat, share ideas and documents and make calls in real-time from anywhere in one digital space.
It has free and paid-for versions for Android, iOS, and web use.
Every remote team needs cloud storage software. Working from anywhere requires easy access to your team's databases, files, and other essential documents from a centralized hub. Whenever anything is saved and uploaded, you can have access to the latest changes.
Below are the primary ones we use at Vineforce:
OneDrive is for personal storage use, while SharePoint is a web-based platform that allows employees of small or large businesses to share, store, and organize information. Both are cloud-based, which means they can be accessed from anywhere at any time.
With OneDrive, you can create drafts of documents for yourself and save them before deciding to share them with your team members. SharePoint allows your team members to access, share, and edit documents and files in one place based on permissions in place. It is best suited for team collaboration.
Dropbox works similarly to SharePoint by allowing you to save, share, access, and edit files in one place.
All these platforms are available from the MS365 suite of apps.
Pro tip: "All your tools should work harmoniously to maximize your work without customization or coding. Amplify your team's productivity by choosing tools that work together naturally."
These essential tools for remote work are some must-haves for remote teams like yours. The functions they cover are the backbone of operations in any workplace.
Tools like these are what businesses have been using to spearhead and make working from anywhere possible for all. However, the ones you choose should rely on your company's preferences, culture, or nature.
