Pros

Link to other systems (ticketing systems, etc). Very good visual representation and good for collaboration.

This is a nice relatively lightweight application that is easily configurable. Teams can quickly setup their own boards as they want and share them with other teams to view.

It is very good if you have a certain structured system in place.

Pros

The ease of use, the non-blocking interface, no loaders for every action is what I like. The interface works like a charm, auto-synced with devices.

I needed a system to help mage my daily work flows, but did not have the budget for it. I'm currently using the free version and am THRILLED with how it has supported my productivity.

It's great, i love the display it's user friendly one. The management is always been so easy with Trello.

Cons

It sends you a ridiculous number of emails. Every little change made to a task or board is emailed to you - even if you did it.

It also stripped new lines from descriptions, while there are workarounds with tags, it was frustrating that have wrapping automatically.

David B.

I asked for a refund of the unused months and I was told no.

Cons

The accidental "drag/move/delete" is scary for us because you can accidentally move a card when you're just trying to scroll over on the screen and that can be problematic.

Fear of insecurity is a shortcoming of the apps. Some bad people can use this app for their ill purpose.

I HATE that i can not see the archived tasks on the calender as an option. Not being able to archive a task after you complete it and still see it on the calender is a bummer.

Why this costs money I'm not sure

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Leankit is a decent collaboration suite helpful for tracking details around things like project management. At least that's what we use it for. It's ok software, don't get me wrong, but when there are alternatives like Trello out there that are free or mostly so I'm not sure why this is worth the money.

Cons

First off, the Trello interface is cleaner and more intuitive. Second, the basic version of Trello, which will suffice for 90% of users, is free.

Leankit Rocks!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Leankit provides Kanban visual work management that scales for the enterprise. Trello was only usable for a team of 10 - with Leankit we scaled to a team of 100

Awesome for multifaceted swimlanes

Reviewed 8 years ago

I can't say enough good things about Leankit. Only issue was that it took me an hour to grasp the UI with splitting horizontal & vertical swimlanes. However, once I had that down, I saw the power of being able to visually represent what I wanted to with the tool. Granted, I'm not using it for kanban per say, I'm using it for customer/prospect management primarily. In a single pane of glass, I...

Pros

+ Intuitive interface once you get used to it. + Very flexible + Flood your favorite problem children with email tasks until they scream (or create a spam filter) + Multiple swimlanes & sublanes are mind blowing. Seriously.... Experiment!

Cons

- Learning curve (but this is not that big of a deal.. trust me..) - tags are not selectable
