A streamlined workflow is vital if you want to stay productive.

Here, we've compiled a list of some of the best free workflow management tools available online.


If you want a simple, fuss-free way of making lists, Workflowy might well be for you. The starkly designed site only does one thing, but it does it very well: it allows you to make tiered, text-based lists of anything you like.


Springpad claims to offer “really smart notebooks”. The site allows you to organise text notes and tasks, while a browser applet enables you to ‘clip’ almost anything you find on the internet, and save it to your Springpad. All your notes and clips can then be arranged in individual notebooks.


As the name suggests, TeuxDeux is a souped-up to-do list. It enables you to split your tasks by day, and also provides a ‘someday bucket’ for longer-term goals without a specific completion date. But perhaps the best thing about TeuxDeux is its simple, beautifully designed interface – nice to look at, and easy to use.


If you ever find yourself drafting emails to be sent later on, Boomerang is for you. This simple Chrome addon allows Gmail users to schedule message delivery – and, just as usefully, it will remind you to come back to important messages in your inbox later on.


There is a vast an ever-growing number of project management tools available, but many are bloated and others are expensive. Freedcamp offers a simple, free way to collaborate on projects and stay organised, all with an intuitive interface.
