I'm a sde trying to stay on top of a few parallel projects, often together with a small team of people. so far I've been using a personal handwritten diary to keep track of things, but it's quickly becoming inadequate. What tools do people use?

    I like Things but I also return to written notebook often as easiest to work with

    What a coincidence. I started looking for the same thing today. It's insane the different amount of things I have to do and I'm not very effective at task switching.

      Yeah, same. I use the bullet journal system in my diary and it works reasonably well. Sometimes however you need to be verbose (reports, long notes) and i long hand writing is not the best choice

    OneNote, but as little more than a text editor. Lots of copy-paste.

    I use Trello on my phone for personal stuff, but I hate typing on the phone (like now). Trello's web app is also worth looking at.

    A colleague of mine is pretty good with switching tasks/context. She maintains 1 notebook for detailed notes on a task and a sticky note on her laptop with bulleted tasks for the day. She says her aim is to see all items on the sticky note checked off.
