No-Code Project Manager for Non-Profits

I got a chance to work with a group of volunteers who were gathering resources and writing articles on Public Policy in India. The primary object of this product was to aid communication by removing the need of sharing links and tasks in the WhatsApp group. It was also supposed to help new volunteers get onboard easily.

I started out by asking certain questions which helped me understand the problem and requirements of the folks who were supposed to use it.
