So, what does a solo lawyer do to manage the practice while keeping overhead low?

This is a comment about managing tasks, and a comparison of ToDoist.

I use GoogleSuite (the old Google Apps) for mail, calendar, tasks, and of course Google Drive (although I also use DropBox). I don't find OneDrive that useful, except for an additional storage of password protected client files for archiving.

Over the years I've looked at many project managers, case managers--some free some low cost. I keep coming back to Google because I don't need all the fancy extras and stuff. KISS principle applies.

I add Virtru to allow for encrypted email.
eFax for fax and also an alternate way to transfer large files.
Boomerang.
The Great Suspender so I can have numerous tabs open but reduce load.
LastPass.
NordVPN for when I'm on the road.
Grammarly.
RightTasks for GMail (puts tasks to the right of mail.
Rapportive to show "contacts" information in GMail panel.
Google Translate for my foreign friends.
HTTPS everywhere.
Freshbooks for accounting.
SMS for GMail.
Honey for discounts and coupons.
Feedly for news.

So, to tasks. Over the years I've tried many task and to do list apps. But I keep coming back to the tasks function in GMail. I've been trying ToDoist. As best I can tell it's about the same as using the task integrated into GMail.

Pro. When you print you get the option to print comments, it syncs with my SGN4 and SurfacePro4 (if using GTasks, you have to put the app on your phone, but that's not burdensome for usage), it looks pretty, you can color code the priority, you can sort by priority (GTasks sorts by due date if you want).

Cons. It's only updated once a day in GMail calendar, you need to have another tab open, you can't move the task to another day with drag and drop as you can with GTasks., You have to pay for the pro version which GMail/tasks has integrated in your annual fee.

Bottom line, I'm leaning toward sticking with Google, and not paying the (admittedly small) pro fee for ToDoist. Thoughts?
