About Trello

Trello is a visual collaboration tool for planning tasks and projects. While commonly used by agile software development teams, the solution is also used in other departments such as marketing, sales, support and HR. The web-based solution provides tools to define projects, their requirements and the workflow to ensure projects are completed in a planned sequential manner. Trello offers a digital board to create, organize and prioritize actions. Administrators or managers can even define workflows, assign tasks to individuals or teams, set deadlines and monitor progress. Trello cards allow users to collaborate with each other. Users can add comments, add members, and attach documents to the tasks assigned to them. Trello offers a professional package that includes the privacy and administrative settings required by large enterprises. Trello integrates with a number of online applications including JIRA Cloud, Bitbucket Cloud, Google Drive, GitHub and Slack.

Trello Review

I love how visual Trello is. It's easy to see at a glance where I am at with all my projects and what needs my attention next.

Pros

Trello is my preferred project management system, one that I use in my business as well as to manage my clients' projects. It's simple enough to use yet robust enough to handle high level of details.

Cons

I haven't really explored the Butler function and automations enough so can't talk to that aspect of Trello.

Reasons for Choosing Trello

I just couldn't get used to how Asana is laid out. Trello works much better for my brain.

Good issue tracking software for small teams and startups

My experience is mediocre, but Trello was not a bad choice for our small team

Pros

- My previous company (which was an early stage startup) used Trello for issue tracking and management. There were less than a dozen engineers, not all of who used it. Therefore it was manageable
- The basic functionality is good if you don't need to do too many fancy things and don't collaborate with a lot of other teams
- Trello is pretty cheap as far as I got to know from higher-ups

Cons

- There was a lack of advanced features in Trello from my experience
- The UI is not the most pleasant to use, and could do with a makeover
- It was not always clear where to put down specific notes about a ticket
- Not a lot of integration options from my experience

A good task manager for small teams

I use Trello to manage the tasks of my part time workers, especially as we are working remotely. I am able to set up projects for the via cards and add any resource material they might need.

Pros

I can use this to manage the task of several workers at the same time. Each of my employees have a board and I am able to add tasks to the board directly from my email. In that way, I am able to take things off of my to-do list because I know that the task is captured somewhere else and the job will be completed.

Cons

I often have a difficult time building out a project in a way that makes sense to me. We use this much less for large project and much more for smaller individual tasks. I also wish there was a easier way of styling the cards. I have attempted to use the Trello code in the cards but unless you use them frequently, you have to relearn them all over each time.

Reasons for Choosing Trello

Smartsheets was a powerful system but we didn't have anyone to manage it. Trello is much more simple to use if you do not have a project manager on staff.

The Card system was a better system for task management for us.

Great for an Electronic To Do List

Definitely helps keep track of all my various lists of to dos, so it's great in that way! The free version is all I use and it is super useful to me.

Pros

I love that I can make different boards to organize all of my various to dos. That way, visually I can see what projects need to be done and when. I also really love the deadlines you can set for yourself, and how it visually changes the look of the board, so that it stands out.

Cons

The only cons for me really is that I know there are a lot more features to it that would probably improve my work flow even better, but it doesn't come naturally, really. It seems like I need to research more HOW to use all the processes available in it. I also don't really like that there isn't a "done" button, only "archive" and to be honest, I don't know what happens when they are archived.

A must-have for organizations who understand the power of Kanban

Trello is a cornerstone tool in our organization. Nuff said.

Pros

The visual management aspect of Trello is extremely compelling. Unlike a one-dimensional task list, Trello provides a robust array of tools that enables you to have a clear overview, while also allowing you to instantly drill down. You have a feeling that their developers are real people who are solving problems people have instead of thinking about cool functionality. Of course they have that too.

Cons

There are some places where Trello is not as intuitive as it could be. I often find myself clicking on the wrong button or dropdown after using it for over 2 years-
