When we started building Unmanage, we wanted to keep it flexible for as many use cases as possible, without watering it down. That meant finding a balance between core items that are common across most project needs, but keeping enough flexibility in there to allow adaptation where needed. For basics, we landed on:

Core item to trackUnmanage Tool
What’s the project?Project Name
Who is responsible for it?Project Team
Who are you doing it for?Client
How important is it (right now)?Priority
Project Type/Project info?Tags
What’s the current status?Status
When is it due? Due Date

With these 7 items, and nothing else, you can pretty effectively track and manage a large number of projects or tasks. Other details are nice, but not always necessary. However, you start removing these, and you can be missing core items that affect your ability to keep track of things well.
