Workload Management Tools for Freelancers

As a freelance proofreader, you may have several projects on the go for different clients at any given time. And keeping track of progress can be tricky! Luckily, there are plenty of good workload management tools available for freelancers. Check out our three top picks below.

1. Trello

Trello is a Kanban board system that allows you to track tasks visually. One of its great strengths is its flexibility, as you can tailor boards, lists and cards to fit a wide range of situations. They even have an Inspiration page to help you work out the best system for you!

The basic Trello service is free, too, which makes it perfect for freelancers working to a budget. You can also sign up to a subscription service that gives you access to unlimited Power-Ups, offering even more control over your boards and allowing you to automate various processes.

2. Wrike

Wrike allows you to break down jobs into subtasks and visualize them in various ways. It can also track the time you spend on tasks automatically, share schedules with clients, and integrate with a range of apps (e.g., Google Drive and Chrome).

To make full use of Wrike you may need to subscribe. But with a variety of features, templates, and add-ons available, Wrike can help anyone boost their productivity.

3. Asana

Like the other apps here, Asana allows you to plan and monitor your workload, keeping track of your progress on tasks with a simple, easy-to-understand interface. And even at the free level, solo freelancers will find all the tools they need to manage their work.

You can also subscribe for additional services and more collaboration tools. Perhaps most exciting of all, you set up a celebration animation when you finish a task. And what better motivation could there be than seeing a colorful unicorn dance across the screen?
