15 Best Project Management Tools for Web Developers in 2023

Last updated:
September 25, 2023

    In this blog post, we explore 15 of the best project management tools for web developers based on features, use cases, and pricing.

    Project management tools are vital for web developers to keep their projects on track and organized.

    As any agency owner and product manager knows, PM suites should serve as the single source of truth for every project. If a task isn't in the project management software, it's as if it doesn't exist.

    Project management tools help with task management, project planning, resource management, team collaboration, and roadmap planning.

    Product managers should be able to see what everyone's doing, the project's progress, and the status of project development iterations at a glance within the PM suite.

    With so many options available, we've simplified the process for you by compiling this list of the 15 best web development project management tools we recommend.

    15 Best Project Management Software for Web Development

    Here’s a list of the 15 best web development project management tools in 2023, covering use cases, features, functionality, and pricing. 

    1. Marker.io

    Bug reports and website feedback with automatic session replay straight into your PM tools—or for use as a standalone PM tool.

    Marker.io is a powerful, user-friendly bug reporting and website feedback tool for web developers.

    With Marker.io, you can:

    • Automatically sync every bug report with your PM tool of choice (e.g., Jira, GitHub, Trello, Asana, and others). This means every bug report and piece of client feedback goes into your PM tool, and the auto-sync allows clients and users to be updated when an issue has been resolved. Alternatively—if you don’t want to use another PM tool—you can use Marker.io as a standalone PM tool.
    • Collect data-rich bug reports, including automatic environment and console logs capture. This means you get all the information you need to fix bugs straight into your PM tool.
    • Collect visual feedback, complete with screenshots and annotations. This feedback can be assigned to web designers to be actioned via the 2-way PM sync.
    • Benefit from our session replay tool to see what a user was doing before they sent a report. Session replay is a time-saving tool for dev teams.
    • Find, reproduce, and fix bugs faster with our network requests recorder tool. This feature allows you to explore the reporters' logs as if you were looking at their browser dev tools.

    You can do all of that and so much more with Marker.io.

    Let’s look at a few more reasons to consider Marker.io as your go-to web development project management tool.

    Automatic 2-way sync with PM tools

    Unlike most other bug tracking and website feedback tools, Marker.io is the only one to offer 2-way sync with PM software.

    Collecting feedback and bug reports is normally time-consuming.

    A product manager sends a client a link to a new website or app via a staging site and asks them to have a look around. Clients give feedback, usually via email, Slack, or Zoom calls.

    You can be waiting days or weeks to get the feedback you need.

    Once you’ve finally got feedback, you need to spend a couple of (tedious) hours transferring every email, Slack message, and transcribed notes into your PM tool.

    Then, the tasks are assigned to the relevant developers or designers for action. 

    With Marker.io’s automatic 2-way PM sync, all that is a thing of the past.

    Feedback and bug reports go straight into your PM tool.

    Secondly—because our sync works both ways, every time an issue is marked as “Done” in your PM tool, that task is marked as “Resolved” in Marker.io.

    Automatic notifications can be sent via e-mail to the client so they know the tasks have been actioned, helping you get sign-off faster.

    It’s that simple!

    Here’s Marker.io's 2-way sync in action:

    Marker.io's 2-way sync keeps your clients in the loop.

    Data-rich bug reports

    Clients and users often don't know what info you need to fix bugs.

    Bugs and errors happen across every website, app, and SaaS product. However, vague statements like “Oh no, something’s broken; here’s what happened; please fix it.” aren't helpful.

    Engineers need detailed information, such as:

    • What URL the reporter was on;
    • Environment and console logs so devs can reproduce the bugs;
    • Metadata (browser, device, OS, etc.);
    • Session replay/recording and anything else that’s useful.

    Thankfully, with Marker.io, all of that data is automatically collected—and goes into your PM tool with the visuals and video recordings.

    Session replay

    Session replay is a user video recording tool that comes as standard with Marker.io. 

    Even with a detailed bug report—it’s not always easy to reproduce a bug.

    It’s easier if you can see exactly what happened when a user or client encountered a bug. 

    Well—Marker.io's suite of tools includes Session Replay exactly for that reason.

    Every bug report that goes into your PM tool includes a “Watch replay” video.

    You can then watch the last 30 seconds (or more) before a bug report was submitted.

    Here’s Marker.io's session replay in action:

    Marker.io works as a small feedback button on any website, app, or SaaS product you upload it to as an easy-to-use widget.

    When it comes to internal or external feedback and bug reports, all anyone needs to do is:

    1. Click the button when they’ve found a bug.
    2. Fill out the feedback form and input details.
    3. Click on “Report Feedback”—done!

    Everything reported through the Marker.io widget will go straight into your PM tool of choice (Jira, Trello, Linear…).
