Zenkit is a project management tool in case you thought it might be something else, like a brand of hipster sock or specialized screwdriver. German software producer Axonic created Zenkit to become the most comprehensive, yet simple, project management tool on the market. Already having integrated the Kanban-style features of Trello, Zenkit has now integrated the list-building functionality of Wunderlist into its arsenal of organizational weaponry.

There are two types of people in this world: those who like to keep themselves organized by using tools and software to assist them, and those who leave half-eaten waffle cones on the couch and write reminders in Sharpie on their arms before putting the Sharpies in a bag and huffing them. It is difficult, in this age of social media and keeping track of Millennials killing things, to operate without some sort of organizational aid. That’s why people use Trello, that’s why people used Wunderlist. Why in the past tense?
Microsoft is retiring Wunderlist. So now you get it.

The main Wunderlist features making it in to Zenkit are the ones that made it worth using in the first place. You can create items with due-dates, assign responsibility, tag tasks as favorites, make checklists and do all this on the web or in iOS (and Android in the future). You can sync with your
Google calendar and import your Wunderlist lists before Microsoft changes it to a most likely simplified version of a list tool called &quot;ToDo&quot;. With this Zenkit update, you can create custom fields and there is a commenting feature as well as the addition of &quot;My Favorites&quot; which is where you can list favorites.

The biggest selling point of this project management tool isn’t the fact that your life is a distraught mess covered in the filth of personal mismanagement and Post-It notes taped to your mirror — but that you can easily switch between Kanban boards and lists. Like, with a simple click or tap. Like you were using your Jedi powers to do it. You don’t have Jedi powers. If you checked the list titled &quot;Powers I do and do not have&quot; you’d know that. Oh, you don’t keep a solid set of lists to keep your life from becoming the end of Titanic? Well, perhaps is the time to start.

Switching between Kanban &amp; Lists

If you are still wondering what a Kanban is, it’s a scheduling system created by the Japanese for lean and just-on-time manufacturing. It’s a perfect project management tool for both those who have a good grasp on the tasks in front of them and for those who like to wade confidently into a room with a LEGO covered floor to a pile of metal coat hangers and declare &quot;I’ll have this cleaned up in no time at all!&quot; It’s also great for procrastinators, well, every organizational system is great for procrastinators. We always need some tool to say we’ll use then never get around to it.

The benefits of Zenkit go a bit further than just a shiny Kanban board. You can convert your to-do list into a calendar, mind-map, or spreadsheet-like table as well. So whatever works for the jumbled bag of marbles between your ears, Zenkit has the option for. Zenkit is marketed to both companies and individuals, so there is no need to feel a bit overwhelmed by all the options and features within the program. If you are running a small business or just trying to get your life in order so your mom stops walking around your apartment questioning your life choices, Zenkit is for you.

The Wunderlist functionality update is live now within Zenkit, joining the Trello functionality. There are no plans to integrate a functionality to read the smudged Sharpie drawn ramblings off your forearm though.
