Ask any freelancer, and one of the best benefits they'll name is the ability to be your own boss. However, this freedom does come with a catch.

When you're your own boss, you have to handle every little detail by yourself. And if you're not a well-organized person, this can quickly become very difficult.

So how can you stay on track and manage your freelance project tasks? By using a project management tool made specifically for freelancers, such as the Hectic app!

Read on to find out how it'll work for you.

Get an overview of all project statuses

Our easy-to-use interface allows you to input all project details. Then, when you're done, you can back out to get a general overview of all project statuses.

If you want to get a deeper dive into a project, you can! Simply click on it and you'll be able to expand to see further details.

On the other hand, you can zoom out further to view your projects on a monthly calendar. When you can see all the deliverable dates, it'll be easier to ensure that all tasks are done on schedule.

Visualize deliverables on boards

You'll be able to create separate cards for each task you need to do on a project. You can then click on the cards and add vital information, such as files, images, and due dates.

Additional features include assignments to stakeholders, notes, and checklists. Just click on a card and you'll bring all of this info up.

When you have all your freelancing tasks on these cards, project management is a lot easier. You'll see which items are "not started," "started," and "done," which means you can easily spot bottlenecks and make corrections promptly. This can decrease the chances of a lagging task dragging the rest of the project down.

Invite other collaborators onto your projects

With our freelance project management tool, you can invite others onto the relevant projects. This can be other freelancers or your clients.

When you have everyone in one place, you won't have to scramble about, trying to get in touch with everyone for updates. Those who are on the project will be able to log in, communicate, and see your project's progress on their own.

Considering the average freelancer works 47 hours a week, you'll need to manage your time wisely. Having management software will help you with your freelance schedule and it might even free up some time.
