Hello Harold and Yenny,

As cost effective there's some attractive solutions out there, here is my top 4:

"Trello" is my every day kanban board (It has a free version), I use it for almost everything (from organizing events in the community of developers to remodeling my kitchen). The free version limits You to only have 10 boards in each team. Has integration with a lots of apps (like github, slack and many more).

"Asana" is a more robust project planing solution, in It's free version lets you have like a very completx to do list to colaborate and share files with your team (also have a calendar). if you pay $9.99 USD/monthly You will have a grant chart of the project.

"Microsoft Project" is the my favorite grant chart and has an excelent resources managment, this is $30.00 USD/monthly, but I don't recommend it for community projects for the cost.

"Teamweek" is on of the cheapers tools if you need to a see what your team is doing and have those task inside a grant chart, if Your team is up to 5 people Teamweek is free. Has Trello integration so that's a yes from me.

Many people just use Excel.

I use Excel and MS Project. Any other special software is based on the organization. If they use Jira, I use Jira. If they use TFS, I use TFS, and so on. I use Trello as a personal task management tool, but not for official project stuff.

Trello for small projects
Jira for larger projects
Excel (or Google sheets if you need a free option) - for analysis, tracking, reporting
MS Project if required by your organization or client - good for scheduling, but not easily applied to any other knowledge area, and not good for tracking and reporting
PowerPoint or Google Slides for presentations
Plus whatever communications tools the stakeholders are most comfortable with - you adapt to their needs.
