Ever feel like it's impossible to keep up with every project that you've got going on? Or maybe you're constantly being asked for updates on a task that hasn't yet been completed? You need Trello!

Trello is our go-to when it comes to keeping on top of progress of tasks for when you have multiple projects on the go at once. Create boards, lists and cards to manage all of your different projects. You can even add other team members to the different cards and move tasks from 'to-do', 'in progress' or 'complete'. Trello is great because you can also add due dates which will send you reminders for when a project is due to be completed. It also means that instead of colleagues asking for progress, all they now need to do is check it on Trello.

Google Assistant 

We all get those days where we feel like we have far too many tabs open in our mind. From remembering to send that email to what you need to grab from the supermarket on your way home - sometimes it can all get a bit too much and we end up forgetting absolutely everything.

Say hello to Google Assistant aka a PA in your pocket. Gone are the days of post-it notes all over your desk. With Google Assistant simply tell it whatever it is that you need to be reminded of at a certain time or place and it will automatically alert you. If you simply need to remember a piece of information to have on hand, for example your new car registration, just ask Google Assistant to remember it for you for when you might need it.
