5 Tools For Remote Workers To Ace Note Keeping


Do you still carry a notebook or diary to the office?

There are multiple instances when you need to quickly scribble a point or note down an important keyword. A notebook very well serves this purpose. However, making structured notes, SOPs, tracking TODOs etc. is tough to do with a notebook. Back in the days, people didn’t have any other choice. But now, we have some amazing apps to help you structure and modularize all your important information.

My focus in this article is on work productivity by aiding your note-taking process. I have handpicked five tools in this category that I believe do a great job. Read the commentary below each of them to know more.
