Balancing different client projects, deadlines, pitching and internal housekeeping tasks means PR pros are constantly multi-tasking and making sure everything gets done on time. We all have our own unique methods for managing our to-do lists (sticky notes, anyone?), but if you’re always looking for ways to be better organized, we’ve rounded up some of the best to-do list apps for PR pros. With the help of these tools, tackling your list just got easier.
One of Google’s less famous – but just as fantastic – tools, Google Keep is a simple note-taking and to-do list platform. Google Keep allows you to create different notes and lists, organize them by color, share with coworkers and set reminders. Google Keep can even send you reminders based on location.
For all the die-hard Google fans out there, this is the tool for you. Google Keep can be used and synced across any of your devices, integrates easily with all other Google tools and is totally free.
With its simple, distraction-free interface and dozens of features, ToDoist can do amazing things for your organizational habits. The app is available for use on any device or platform, and can be used with both the Google and Apple watches.
ToDoist’s features include location-based notifications, comments on tasks, sub tasks, recurring tasks, labels, filters, easy sharing and collaboration, and even the option to create different priority levels. For those that get really into this, ToDoist also allows you to track your productivity over time and easily visualize your achievements.
ToDoist provides a free version with minimal features, and subscriptions for businesses or premium users are available for $29/year.
Just like its name, this to-do list app is as simple as can be. While it’s only available for Apple products, Things is available for you to use across Macs, iPhones, Apple Watches and iPads by easily storing information in the cloud. Things allows for quick entries and auto-fill, and ends the day with a daily review to make sure nothing falls through the cracks.
Things provides a free trial, but then requires a one-time app purchase of $49.99 for Mac, $9.99 on iPhone, and $19.99 on iPad.
ToodleDo is a great tool for tracking more than just a daily to-do list. ToodleDo lets you choose which features you want to use and customizes your interface based on what you need to use it for. Use ToodleDo for tasks, taking notes, creating to-do lists, making outlines for projects, tracking good (and bad) habits, and much more. Like the other tools, ToodleDo is also fully functional across multiple platforms and devices and makes sharing and collaborating super simple. Also – it’s free!
A PR pro’s job involves a daily balancing act and constant organization. One of these to-do list apps could be your new best friend.
