One of the questions that popped up during our first #OnAirWithLithium with the Lithium Community team (watch it on demand to hear their answers ~0:44:05):
"What are your favorite apps/tools you use to stay organized or increase productivity?"
Our community team had many to share, and I'm really curious to hear what yours are and why?
My organization actually goes through a couple of steps and tools - I'm not sure if it makes me more or less productive, but here's what it looks like 😉
Thanks to @TreyWaddell for the great questions - and look forward to hearing how you all stay organized!
I tend to like to keep it simple so rather than using multiple tools my primary time/organisational management tool is Outlook. Between the Tasks, the Calendar and making sure only emails that still require action are in my inbox (I have MANY folders but I find the search feature helps me out if I cant find a particular email).
I also use Notepad ++ if I am doing any sort of coding (LOVE the tabs) and OneNote for writing blog articles.
I wear a few different hats in my role so staying organized is really important.
To help me achieve this I keep things fairly simple, Outlook, my smartphone and Text Edit 🙂
We have several tools in use in the organisation but my working day will include the following:
Interested to see what others use.
The apps I use are -
@tyw - Rightly said, "managing high volumes of email is extremely easy thanks for shortcuts and having complete 1:1 synchronization of Outlook and my device is amazing." I use BlackBerry Z10 for mails and calls. Email handling on BlackBerry is fun and easy and great.
@RobertT - Asana is just excellent for projects and collaboration. Works well with Google calendar sync. Great list!
I'm using a similar toolset to the previously mentioned. Ordered by importance and everyday usage they are:
I'm useless without :
1. Wunderlist (perfect sync on MacBook, iPad and iPhone)
2. WeekCalendar (iOS, sync with Outlook)
3. 1Password (iOS only for me)
I can't believe I JUST saw this thread.
Here are some of my favorites:
I also love Momentum, which is a Google Chrome extension.
Awesome suggestions. Thanks guys. I use a few of the same.

I everyone, sorry to be late to the discussion - my tools:
My criteria for selecting productivity tools:
A few examples of tools that fit the bill for me are:
You are right on the money with this one:
"Secure - 2-factor authentication, encryption, and additional security features are required"
