"Best" is context-specific. It really comes down to what the size and needs of the team are. If they are co-located, nothing might be needed other than wall-space in their working area. If not, then tools providing persistent chat (e.g. Slack or MS Teams) or wiki platforms such as Confluence can provide support.

Kiron
Totally aligned with @Kiron about best. Trying to add something to @Kiron words my recommendation is remember the communication essential model. What are you looking for is about a mean and the mean will depends on the context and the level of formality you need to achieve.
I agree with Kiron, some tools may be better if the team is co-located, like the physical board on a well-visible wall in the workplace.
If the team is remote-located, I recommend This newfangled project monitoring solution that combines agile with global indicators. Every team member can be included in a Trello dashboard, to update the state of his respective tasks. Then, the information is translated in a global indicators panel, that can be shared with management supervisors.
All team and management members can access Project boards in a remote manner, through the web.

As always it depends and agree with @kiron's recommendations.
There are many tools such as Basecamp, Asana, Smartsheet, Wrike, Jive, IBM connection, and MS Teams that incorporates project schedule, tasks, and team member collaboration. So far, the best that I have used is MS Teams since it incorporates MS Project, Chat, SharePointOnline, OneDrive. If the client is an MS shop, then this all makes sense. Otherwise, it may be a combination of their specific chat tools (i.e. Slack, Google Suite, etc). If you want to explore more and need further advise, please PM or email me [email protected]

Dear Miriam, thanks for sharing, I've sent you e-mail with further questions. Gabriela
It depends as mentioned above, just share our current use:
For co-located teams, interactive communication ( face to face), using white board. Besides, We are using MS team as communication platform. It works well for us.
Thanks you all for the tips and advices. Actually I'm talking about team which is able to comunicate mainly on-line (not F2F). Also I'm talking about I'm talking about smaller project with the same base but different specifications/ plans,etc. So platform which enable to have all project imputs on one place e.g. plan, communication, sharepoint is necessary. So any recommendation or experience with Basecamp/Asana/Smartsheet/Wrike/Jove/IBM Connection/MS Teams highly appreciated.

i have been using TRELLO from past few years and finding it to be useful. if taken paid version, there are many features like calender sync, attachments sharing, setting up priorities etc..
We're a construction company, our office staff (myself included) work completely remote now, and I am able to manage multiple projects across the country with only Microsoft products.

My tips: keep it simple! Don't be afraid to set standards and keep others accountable when you decide on a communications style/plan, and use what ever is readily available.

The pros to this? MS has everything we possibly need and more to manage everything we do, it's fairly intuitive, and you probably already have it within your organization.
