Todo List Managers

The best way to get through multi-step processes in work and in life are tried and true to-do lists. Without these, some of the more complex processes people have to complete in their work would be much more difficult. Thankfully, there is a vast array of apps and services that allow for the creation of anything from simple checklists to complex, multi-tiered workflow guides.

  1. Joplin is a free, open source note taking and to-do application, which can handle a large number of notes organised into notebooks. The notes are searchable, can be copied, tagged and modified either from the applications directly or from your own text editor.
  2. Powerful knowledge base that works on top of a local folder of plain text Markdown files.


  3. With so many tools, it's hard to keep everyone on the same page. Notion is a new tool that unifies them all.
  4. Google Keep is a service provided by Google which integrates note-taking and web surfing.
  5. Microsoft OneNote, part of the Microsoft Office Suite, is a digital notebook application that gives people one place to gather notes and information.
  6. Infinitely flexible. Incredibly easy to use. Great mobile apps. It's free. Trello keeps track of everything, from the big picture to the minute details.
  7. A hierarchical note taking application, featuring rich text and syntax highlighting, storing data in a single xml or sqlite file.
