With Kanban Tool managing remote teams is a piece of cake ;)

2015-06-17

First and foremost - it is clear and intuitive, so you won't have problems introducing it to your team.The creators of KanbanTool took what's best from Kanban method and combined it with seamless time tracking. Integration with other software such as Dropbox, Zapier or Google Drive gives you practically endless possibilities.

Pros

-also an Android app -intuitive interface -really like its layout -easy to customize -a lot of interesting features such as: My Work Widget, Time Tracking & Reporting or adding tasks via email

Cons

-no iPhone app -more colors of cards would be nice

I used this with a small startup in the Philippines and it worked well.

2018-07-29

There were also members of the sales team that had very minimal experience with project management requirements, documentation, and technology as a whole.

Pros

The visual ease of the tool is phenomenal.

Cons

There were older execs on the board that still preferred to see a Gantt chart for the integration of different services.

The best Kanban app I've used

2015-06-15

It's to the point, no-nonsense, clear and easy to use, as well as to get used to using over a longer period of time.

Pros

- great customization and having the optional features (Power-ups) - time tracking, time reporting, cumulative flow, lead and cycle time diagram, breakdown chart - calendar and file hosting services integration - excel export - swimlanes - horizontal rows for setting a number of projects within one process (haven't seen this in other apps) - mobile access - free version to choose

Alexander Mishin

Excellent tool if you have to work on several projects simultaniously

2017-05-17

Pros

Simply put a name of a project in a line and a task type in a column (for example, "to do", "doing", "review", "done") to handle all of them on just one board.

Cons

Bad UX design. Hope they will improve it.

Flexible, Intuitive Time and Task Management

2017-04-20

Once I got in the habit of shifting every task I was working (The timer starts as soon as you put it in the "in progress" zone), I got really good info on what type of tasks were chewing up time, and even on the fact that I was working on a lot of things throughout the day that I didn't think to track.

Pros

Flexibility, extensibility, intuitive interface.

Cons

Not being able to fully manually arrange to do items.

The only online kanban tool that checks off all the boxes

2017-06-14

We got our project requirements and tasks under control quickly and allowed several stakeholders to "get on the same page" easily, streamlining communication and nailing down requirements.

Pros

Managing items is simple as drag and drop, click and type.

Excellent product for Project Managers across industries.

2017-04-17

I have tried Kanban Tool for six months and I can say it has all the features you can expect from these tools and it allows me to be more organized: it is visual, based on colored-notes, drag and drop, you can customize the work flow, for teams, analytics, etc.

Pros

It has all the features you can find in other platforms.

Cons

It has room for improvement (the design). For example, I have also tried RealTimeBoard (awesome design).

A Kanban board that caters to any needs

2018-04-16

It is definitely a Kanban purist, providing functionality beyond simple boards with drag and drop functionality.

Pros

Kanban Tool offers true kanban board functionality with an amazing number of features and customization abilities not found in other Kanban products.

Cons

Kanban Tool avoided the eye candy most other developers often rely on to bring customers on-board.

A good tool to divide the work into parts, write each element on a card and put on the board

2018-07-04

Pros

Assigns well-defined limits to the amount of elements that may be in progress in every moment of work flow.

Cons

the free version is limited to two users and two tables, if you want to add more users and tables you have to choose the paid option, in addition the free version is used to manage only simple projects with small teams
