Task management within Slack can pose quite a challenge due to the lack of native task management features, and for customer service professionals operating on Slack, keeping track of actionable items is a significant pain point. Although individual Slack reminders are helpful, they fall short when teams need to collaborate on tasks.

Fortunately, Slack accommodates an array of third-party apps. You can select and incorporate your preferred task management tools into your Slack workspace via the Slack marketplace. The question then arises: which task management tools are most suited for customer service professionals on Slack? Though countless apps might be suitable, we sought those meeting specific criteria:

  1. Slack native—task management interfaces are largely within Slack itself.
  2. User-friendly—we aren't searching for complex project management tools, just simple, effective ways to distribute tasks within a team.
  3. Free tier availability—allowing users to test the app without any cost.
  4. Popular in the Slack marketplace—indicating wide acceptance and endorsement by other users.

Based on these parameters, we've compiled the best task management apps in the Slack marketplace in 2024. We will also discuss how ClearFeed is designed specifically to address task management challenges in customer support over Slack. Before deep diving into these apps, let's guide you through installing Slack apps in your workspace—a procedure that applies to all apps discussed in this post.

How Do You Install or Add Apps to the Workspace?

Step 1: Open your workspace and go to Apps from the left navigation menu bar. Under the app sections, click on the + button (showing Browse Apps on hover).

Step 3: You will see the App Directory once you click. On the top right side, you will see the App Directory button. Click on it. (or click on the green `Browse the App Directory`).

Step 4: It will take you to the below URL (where <your-workspace> will be replaced by your workspace name automatically - for example, for our team):


Scroll down a little bit, and you will see a search bar. On the search bar, type the name of the app you want to install.

Click on the app icon to open an app details page. Then, right below the app icon, click the "Add to Slack" green button to add it to your workspace.

That's it! You can repeat this procedure for most apps listed in this post. Note: many organizations restrict Slack app installs to admins and owners, and you may have to contact your workspace admin in such cases.

1. Todoist

Todoist is a popular task management app widely used by project managers and individuals. It stands out from the crowd thanks to its user-friendly interface and compatibility with various operating systems. One major advantage of Todoist is its ability to integrate with Slack. This feature allows managers, team leaders, or any member of a team workspace to create and assign tasks from the Slack interface easily. What's more, Todoist allows you to set task priorities and add custom tags to your to-dos.

If you're looking for an app that can help you manage your daily tasks effectively and help you get stuff done, Todoist might be your best bet. This versatile tool can be used for both personal and work tasks, and it comes highly recommended by users—more than 3 million people have given it a 5-star rating across various app marketplaces. Todoist supports over 70 other integrations beyond Slack, and let us show you how to use it within Slack to manage your tasks more efficiently.

How to Add Todoist to the Slack Workspace:

Installing Todoist in your workspace is different from installing other apps. Here’s how to get started with it:

  1. First, visit the link: It will open a page asking for permission to install.
  1. Click the green button with the text "Allow."

That's it. Let us show you how to convert team members' messages into tasks.

  1. Open your Slack workspace and hover over any message.
  2. On the right of the message, you will see a menu above the message. Click on the three vertical dots.
  3. Now select the option to add a task. It will open the popup.
  4. Fill in the details and click Okay.
  5. To check the added task, open the Todoist App.

Depending on the due date, the task will show on the dashboard under the "Today" or the "Upcoming" section. Todoist also shows the completed tasks in the todoist app dashboard.

You can also create tasks using slash commands. Tasks created from Slack using todoist integration will show under the todoist app dashboard like the below image.

Enhance Your Task Management Using ClearFeed on Slack

While the apps above, and many more like them, are great Swiss knives for task management in Slack (and a great improvement over Slack reminders) - they are not purpose-built for customer support. Apps like ClearFeed go much further in helping customer support teams keep track of key deliverables created in the context of Slack-based support. With ClearFeed, you can:

  • Understand and differentiate messages from customers (vs. agents) on Slack channels.
  • Triage tickets and update cases in external ticketing systems like Salesforce Service Cloud, Zendesk, FreshDesk, Jira Service Management, HubSpot, and Intercom.

And many more features specifically tailored for this use case. Want to know more about us? Connect with us here.
