Acuity offers the simplicity of setting open blocks of time so your colleagues and clients can choose what works.

Trello. [Affiliate link] Communication, project and task management for individuals and teams. Trello use a board and card visual metaphor, and users can choose any grouping category to move tasks/items through a completion process. Process tags can be very simple: Tasks > In Process > Completed. Or To Do > Discussion > Delegated > Doing > Done. Cards support assignments to team members, checklists, activity updates, and more. Simply drag and drop cards from one category to another. I use Trello for Onboarding, Team assignments, Status calls.
Evernote. [Affiliate link] Over and over I heard “you need Evernote!” Clip websites, organize info, set up ticklers and lists, plan book content. I thought, no, I have other systems … until someone shared some Evernote GTD (Getting Things Done) templates. This has become an uber essential tool with so, so many uses. Evernote uses a “notes” and “notebook” metaphor for organizing. Attach images, pdf, and other files. The company has recently created an integration with Slack.
Zoom. Online conference calling, using audio only or video options. Schedule individual and group online meetings, with screen sharing tools. Record and post webinars. Really easy to use.
