Project management

I haven’t found the need to use much software to manage the daily operation of Blot. We use email heavily, preferring it to chatting applications, and a text-file to record our outstanding tasks.

Task tracking

We use a text-file (todo.txt) to keep track of tasks. This text-file is checked into version control. If somebody needs to be notified when a task is complete, I include a link to the appropriate email thread in the task.

Email strategy

My email inbox only contains email to which I need to respond. Once I respond to an email, it is archived. If there is a longer task which I need to complete, I will make an entry in todo.txt with a link to the archived email thread, so I can follow up with the customer as soon as the task is complete.
