Linux applications to improve productivity at work


If you are teleworking, surely you will be interested in knowing some Linux apps that can help you improve productivity. When you work from home, you have more comforts but, generally, some people tend to work longer hours than they would work in the office. Therefore, you can use this type of software to streamline your work and help you have more time off.

Here you can find some good applications and suites with which to do your daily work, do it in the best way, and improve productivity. Some of these projects you will already know, others maybe not, and you have spent a lot of time doing some things in a "manual" or analog way without knowing that there were solutions for it ...

Our best tools to improve productivity in your work are:

  • GnuCash: to keep your accounting and finances up to date, you can help yourself from this GNU project. A software designed so that these calculations and procedures are not so annoying. You will be able to perform all the calculations, keep a record, scheduled transactions, chart of accounts, follow-up of clients, suppliers, jobs, billing, payment of bills, taxes, etc.
  • ProjectLibreWhen you have a project to manage, you can use this other program to plan everything you need to ensure success. In other words, it is an alternative to Microsoft Project. An app that produces Gantt charts, network diagrams, earned value costs, resource histograms, work breakdown structure diagrams, etc.
  • Gnotime: If you already have a good number of office applications, such as office suites, image editors, project management, accounting, etc., surely you want to add an app to your list to track the time spent on each task that you do in your work, and thus better manage how much you dedicate to each thing. In addition, you will be able to analyze if you will really spend enough time on the most critical tasks or if you waste it on other less relevant ones.
  • LastPass: if you are working from home, one of the things that can reduce your productivity is the fact that you are always remembering passwords and entering them in your email sessions, to access company platforms, banking services, etc. So that this is not a problem, you can use a password manager where you can enter all the passwords you have and that they will no longer be a problem ...
  • Xiki: All those who frequently use the command line, surely they want something that contributes more to them, that makes life easier for the shell (bash, zsh, csh, ...). With this project you will be able to extend the capacities.
  • Zim: if you like to have everything under control all the information necessary for your project, you can use this Wiki editor in graphical mode, light, and with which you can handle both text and images.
