Helpful Team Project Tool

2019-02-11

Very useful tool for both personal work flow and team work flow.

Pros

It is easy to create multiple boards for different projects. I have one for my personal and work to do lists, and my team has one for graphic design projects, intern projects, etc. Very versatile and easy to make useful for your team.

Cons

Deleting/archiving cards could be made easier, and I would also like to be able to see more of a preview for each card rather than having to open each card to view.

Good mobile/web kanban service

2018-07-24

Greatest control of work flow.

Pros

It facilitates the workflow, both @home and @work. It's easy to see where we are in a specific task.

Cons

It's hard to look for history, and the mobile interface can use a little polishment. It can get messy to work with large groups.

Pros

Has such fine assets that you didn' even think you need but you find out that using these your work flow becomes better and so beautifully organized.

Cons

I do not see any cons withing this software. The only remark I would give is that it should have the delete option besidess the archive one.

I love trello

2018-09-25

Pros

We use it for keeping track fo deal flow and for managing our product work flow.

Cons

They could work on their notifications for teams. It's sometimes hard to keep everyone up to date on new cards or changes to cards. I think a slack integration would be helpful.

One of the market leader in kanban boards

2018-05-05

It is an essential tool in organizing and controlling several flows and processes.

Pros

Have used it for years and has always been a very polished product even before the acquisition by atlassian. Very easy to use. To create a board, one needs to just define the different columns or lists which represent the different stages of a process and then create the cards. Transferring cards from one stage to another is a simple matter of drag and drop and adding comments or more information is easy. Many integrations are also availabile such as Slack, Jira and others. Best of all, it is free.

Cons

Permissions are maybe the biggest limitation of this software. It would definitely be useful to be able to add someone to the board but with view only access. for instance, at my company, the output of a process led by my team is used by another team. I would like to give view access to that team so that they know what is coming up. This seems not to be possible at this time.

Great for organizing customer feature/feedback requests/project mgmt!

2017-10-18

Better organization for feedback requests and an easier way to track project flow.

Pros

I love that Trello is online and easily accessible by multiple team members - we started collecting feature requests from customers this way and it was a much better way of tracking how many requests we were getting, which helps prioritize our dev queue.

Cons

It's not exactly built for tallying counts - we've found a way to do it by simply adding comments to a card, but having a +1 feature would be nice!

An easy tool for staying on top of collaborative projects

2019-03-12

My overall experience with Trello has been great. It's free to use - perfect for my nonprofit team. Also, it's very easy to communicate project updates and receive notifications about project status. The project reminders in my email inbox are helpful!

Pros

What I like most about Trello is the ability to receive desktop notifications and add file attachments to project cards.

Cons

What I like least about this software is that it's less pretty than competitors like Flow and Asana.

Visual project and task management

2018-08-30

I'm a more visual person so I like the visual elements of Trello. It may seem minor but it makes my projects seem more tangible. Discounting project reminders I'm more likely to stay on top of something that I can easily see.

Pros

I like the more visual nature of Trello. It's based on "boards" and I've used it for managing more personal creative projects.

Cons

I don't think it would work as well for some of our more straight forward project work flows.

Among the best project management tools I've used

2018-05-05

Pros

After using several other project management tools, such as Teamwork and Trello, I can say I'm a fan of Flow.

Cons

Difficult to find tasks that you hand off to others. Yes, there is a "delegate" feature where you can see tasks you delegated, but not tasks you simply reassigned. Also the notifications for "catch-up" can get overwhelming at times.

More streamlined than Trello, much easier than Jira, much faster than Asana

2017-01-25

It's not a solution for *everyone*, but that's exactly why we liked it. Trello had become unwieldy (due dates were getting missed, I was spending more time organising than working, notification overload etc.) and I've used Asana + Jira before and they're awful.

Pros

* An effective workflow * Helped us manage lots of parallel projects * Less time spent organising, more time working * Good support

Cons

* It took us a while to try and bend it in different ways, I recommend reading about why features work the way they do - it'll make things a lot clearer.
