Here, we will discuss some essential project management software for freelancers to track the timeline of the projects.
Asana: The simple and clean layout of Asana has made it the best project management software for the freelancers. As a freelancer, you have to handle lots of projects at a time. Moreover, it is also necessary for you to break big tasks into sub-tasks. After breaking these tasks into sub-tasks, you have to assign deadlines to these sub-tasks.
