Pros

What I like most about the tool is the super simple and clean user interface, without unnecessary functions and easy to read. I really like the mobile version that works with the same web interface.
In practice, I was impressed with the simplicity of the cards on the board. They can be created by color, helpful when trying to manage a bunch of different workflows like I am.
Are overjoyed with the possibility to automate recurring tasks - they're working just like clockwork. Overall, very useful application - the not too steep pricing also helps.

Pros

One of the most amazing characteristics though is that any data can be relational - pretty much like in a RDB - and you can create your own data structures to organize yourself as you prefer.
This program does not only work great for business it doubles as an amazing personal organizational tool for the home.
The flexibility is superb and the UI is highly usable. The feature set is still growing, but it is great that new features do not introduce a burdensome complexity.

Cons

Without it, I would be incapable of getting anything done.
The only thing I regret is that I haven't found it before.
I'm using the lowest zoom but since I have a lot of boards, cards, swim lanes, it can get crowded. However, it was the only product I've found so far that allowed me to do this.

Cons

The Only thing I miss in zenkit is the lack of native mobile apps.
After awhile you get in the habit of clearing the end date. I do miss from Trello how a checklist item can be made into a Kanban Card by a click.
There is no option to add additional photos or icons to Kanban cards until you pay.

Zenkit

The most flexible, lean and easy to use solution for Project managers

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have used it for Opportunity management (sales), Scrum (delivery of system) and various smaller business and personal projects.

Pros

The tool is extremely customizable, and the killer features for me is the customizable, 2-dimensional kanban boards, @mention in comments and 'savable' filters. Perfect for agile project management with multiple deliverables and team members.

Cons

If I'm creating new items in kanban mode, I need first to create the item, then open it to add all the details. Would be cool if it popped up the window as part of the first workflow, or better yet; let me use @mention and #labels as I type ( i Know #labels are there, but I need to remember the exact label. I would prefer to have a list pop up as I type)

Vendor response

Hi Søren, Thank you so much for your kind review! We're glad to hear you're enjoying the flexibility of the Kanban view. I've noted your request regarding a list of labels to pop up after entering the # and sent it to our dev team.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Easy switch from list view to Kanban. Conceptually Mind Map is a cool way to Brainstorm ideas Love that in Kanban when you click a task, the details window comes up on the side - and does not clear the rest of the screen.

Cons

Still missing Gantt Chart. Mind Map is not as good as stand-alone mindmap products.

Ease of use of project management across a small team which is geographically dispersed.

The best Kanban tool, but not only!

Reviewed 4 years ago

I use Zenkit everyday to manage the projects I'm working on (website development mainly). I can see at a glance what I have to do everyday and can also track time for each task, thanks to custom fields!

Pros

What I like the most with Zenkit is the ability to customize a board to your needs. The most interesting features to me are custom fields. If you use Zenkit as a project management tool, you can add fields for "estimated time" and "time spent" for every task. It combines very well with the "Views" feature. You don't have to stick with the Kanban view and can choose between Kanban, task list, table, calendar (useful with due dates on tasks) and even mind maps.

Cons

The free version of Zenkit may be enough to test the product, but once you have more than 5 members in your team, you have to upgrade your account to a premium plan. Anyway, once you'll discover Zenkit, you may want to support the team behind this awesome product!

This is a highly customizable version of other more famous softwares of the same kind, which allows users to do about everything they might want to do. I used it for a first project, for a first company, and didn't hesitate one second about adopting it when I started working in a second company.

Cons

The card display in the kanban view, or in other views, could be more customizable for clarity purposes. Sometimes a bit sluggish, although very fast overall.

Zenkit Is Everything

Reviewed 5 years ago

Zenkit is a single space for everything you need to manage a project

Pros

Zenkit allows multiple views of a database. This is great for budgets, kanban/Agile, Work Breakdown Structure, and collaboration. Custom tags, Task Assignments, File Attachments. Zenkit empowers users to get creative in how they enter, manipulate, and view data. It is the Project Management database and collaboration tool of dreams.

Cons

As of yet, exporting data in free version is limited to a csv file of table contents. You have to work to get your info into Excel and then you'll likely do a lot of formatting to make it presentable. Future options for MindMap, Gannt, and report-ready files would be nice.

More Functionality than other project management software

Reviewed 4 years ago

I was looking for a free or freemium project management software, however, I found other project management software to be limited in what I needed it to be able to do. Zenkit fixed all of my functionality issues and then some. I can have each individual "collection" set to whatever view is best for that collection, whether that is Kanban, List, etc. I love how I can customize various fields and include key information that I need to have or be able to sort by (when I switch to Table view). I don't mind the lack of visuals (photos, icons) available via the free version and the space allowed is adequate for personal use. I definitely recommend Zenkit over other major project management tools I've worked with previously.

Pros

I love the new 2-factor authentication option even for personal (free) plans. The biggest functionality pro over any other system I've tried is the Mindmap option. Another cool option is that you can create the Mindmap even if you originally started the collection as a Kanban board. I've used this feature to great success multiple times. Additional views including List, Table, and Calendar. I like the multiple options as each project may have specific needs. I use the List for individual tasks, calendar view for my overall schedule, and Kanban for individual projects. Customization and ability to add fields (instead of being forced to only add them as comments).

Cons

The User Interface can seem a little utilitarian and not as friendly as some other software systems. No option to add additional visuals like photos or icons to individual Kanban cards until you are on a paid plan. When entering information into a Kanban card, it can be difficult to know where your cursor is if you use the tab key to move to next field.
