If you are looking for a basic CRM this tool would work. It has lots of room to grow.

Todoist

Todoist is nice in that it is very easy and straightforward to use, which is one of the main pieces that people need in order to adopt the use of a new tool across an organization. It is very clear on how to create and complete tasks, and how to set labels, archive tasks, and assign tasks to others. So for those that are thrown off by lengthy spreadsheet project management models, Todoist is a great tool to consider, even for a trial period or demo! Todoist would not be for someone that wants to plan out projects at-length with more typical Project Management-related software, whether particular to software development like sprints in Atlassian's JIRA, or in design or business roles in a highly visual and sharing-focused program like Monday.com. In these types of programs, you have a lot more visibility and project-focused visualization and feature sets that are required, whereas Todoist's strength really lies in getting people away from paper lists that have you constantly flipping back and forth between the pages, and get you into the digital space to keep track of things for people before, during, and after meetings, or on top of assignments that you have to hit by a particular deadline.

Cons

  • Difficult to upload targets
  • Not easy to modify a target
  • When uploading targets you can not attach them to tags until after they are uploaded.
  • When listing opportunities in the system, you are limited with what stage the opportunity is in and the star system is not very helpful. The status' are very vague and not always accurate.

  • Would like a non-Google android version for non-Google android devices (Amazon Fire Tablets)
  • Would like an option to create follow-up task upon completion of a task
  • Logic based tasks (i.e. when task 1 is complete, then activate task 2)
  • Time based priorities. Set priority 1 after 6PM, but only priority 4 before 6PM

Alternatives Considered

Accelo doesn't really exceed any competitors in any one area of their product, but in 2015 when we made the move this was the best option that included all the tools we wanted. However, user adoption was low in some areas due to the UI, so we scaled back Accelo and added other tools.

I really disliked Wunderlist, Trello was great for project management, but not so great for whole life, quick and easy task management, and Evernote served me well enough...except it's really not built for task management either and not having the option of setting up recurring tasks made the entire process cumbersome and painful. I use Todoist from the moment I open my computer until long after I close it. The mobile app keeps me on track when I'm not by my computer and makes errands, like grocery shopping, a lot more enjoyable. Plus, I asked my husband to start using it, so now we can figure out chores and stock the fridge without a millions of texts and calls.

Return on Investment

  • Helps with tracking prospects through the sales/marketing funnel
  • Has led some employees to stop using the tool and going back to spreadsheets. When trying to attach targets to tags you need to do so individually and if you upload a large list you need to do this manually, one by one, and requires a lot of time. So people have gone back to spreadsheets where they could simply just cut and paste new people in.

  • Todoist helps me manage my own workflow...and that helps everyone else on the team stay on track too, making sure I'm not the roadblock to project progress
  • Our team is much more aligned with this tool, to the point where we don't have to waste time communicating in 10 different channels
  • Todoist gives me a sense of my own productivity in hard numbers, and the same for my team (plus Karma is fun)
