There are many mobile applications and cloud services to keep an organized agenda, either in the form of a to-do list or with a calendar. And they are very flexible tools, but there are those who cannot separate themselves from something very simple: a weekly planner.
There are even those who, seeing that they do not find tailored profits, plan the week on a piece of paper that they carry with them everywhere. Not a bad idea, but we can always take a look at some alternatives that show that there are planners out there.
Week Plan is a planner that follows the original concept of this productivity format quite well. Tabs per day, reorganizable tasks, objectives, task assignment and integration with various online calendars if we agree to pay a premium plan.
Trello was not originally conceived as a weekly planner, but due to its graphical interface it can be used very well for it. We simply name its columns as the days of the week and we can start filling the aforementioned with tasks that can be classified into categories. And remember: it can be complemented.
We could define Kanbanchi as a Trello something more oriented to team productivity, in the sense that it is capable of programming the time that each person or group of people must dedicate to each task. Another tool to consider.
Why not? The weekly view of Windows, iCloud and Google calendars can be our perfect companions as long as we use them as an agenda by marking our notes. It is enough to squeeze the most of the metadata that each task offers us.
We change direction and go from horizontal to vertical with Workflowy. For those who like to master the tasks in a text list, we can build a list hierarchically ordered by days and / or projects. For me, one of the most flexible options out there.
This is for those who want data and statistics in addition to project and task planning, and especially focused on work teams: Weekdone is the most complete solution for those who do not want to miss any statistics on the performance of their workers.
We end up with what is perhaps the worst option for mobile devices but the best alternative for those who spend all day in front of a computer and want something flexible without too much need to fill out an additional data task: a simple spreadsheet in sites as Google Drive can act as a custom scheduler. In fact, there are already predefined task list templates that can be useful to us.
