Pros

So natural to utilize Very visual Price is correct Easy to add/eliminate individuals Search ability is superb.
The product has a good look and is easy to use. Regarding the integration of the processes, it is very good and agile with the other members.
Excellent software to maintain the progress as a team and achieve the targets as a team. Monitor the team's progress and a wonderful application full of tools helps us to do things right.

Pros

It's great for keeping tasks organized and showing the progress via Kanban and many other viewpoints. Great for assigning projects and knowing who's working on them.
Super simple to use and with a good range of functionality, Planner is a light project management tool that is an important part of the Office 365 suite.
I love that its customizable as I can assign cards and move them around as I please. The project management feature is very effective as I can set deadlines and monitor accordingly.

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.

Cons

Few features on content management: No text formatting, impossible to identify collaborators in the comment, no drag and drop for files, no preview for images.
Frequent issues with lost updates and such, especially on other browsers than Microsoft Edge.
There is a lack of way of dividing activities into steps and setting deadlines.

Mostly fine. Fairly unnecessary with similar options in Microsoft Planner etc.

Pros

It has some nice visual layouts for creating and managing workflows. The boards feature is particularly nice.

Cons

It just feels like one more generic place to manage workflow among a bevy of other more integrated options.

Pros

This takes my to-do list to the next level, helping me keep track of tasks and what bigger projects or programs they're a part of.

Unfortunately as far as I can tell it doesn't integrate with Microsoft Teams or Sharepoint or other products my team is using, unlike Microsoft Planner.

Great Project Management Software

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

I like the look of Trello a lot. It is bright, customizable, and fun. It also is built perfectly to facilitate collaboration on projects, making it easy to communicate between many people managing separate tasks.

Cons

Honestly, the main con is that Microsoft Planner manages to do basically the same thing, and integrates better with other Microsoft products, so I tend to use that instead. But I have no complaints about Trello itself!

Easy to sign up and get started, the tagging feature is great when you are assigning tasks to other team members to keep everyone aligned.

Not a ton of integration with office 365 yet, but most likely why Microsoft has their own version of this with the Planner app. SSO would be great to improve security features.

Trello- nonprofit review

Reviewed 3 years ago

Having a visual and digital space to orgaize work has been a great resource over the last several years. I find when i have a big project and challenge ahead of me gravitating to tools like trello to help me get things laid out. thank yoU!

Pros

I love that trello offers various teirs and procing to their tool- as a nonprofit employee its been easiest for me to use the tool using a free account and have had others on my team- limited in what features we have access too, but can get the core of trello and the boards still. Its a pretty simple concept and easy to use, visial boards really help me in planning, executing and priortizing.

Cons

no complaints from my experience using the tool, other than our organization integrating it formally which would unlock more features and integrations with microsoft office 365 and specifically Microsoft Teams. Now with Microsoft Planner though many of the same features are available and that integrates with all of our tools better. Trello works better for certain projects that may include some volunteers or other external pro bono partners

If you like card based project management, this might work out for you.

Reviewed 6 years ago

Trello is a pretty visual planner if it meets your needs.

Pros

I know a lot of people who love Trello, it gives a great experience of just moving cards around and getting a visual view of project planning.

Cons

I found the whole experience to be far too limited for large-scale planning and project management. It didn't match the way our projects worked in the real world, and was unable to adapt to our needs. So, while I can see the use cases for it, and it all really depends on your project type, team size, and work style as to what tool you use, this one didn't fit us and wasn't flexible enough to extend in the ways I needed.

An affordable option for all

Reviewed 4 years ago

I love this option compared to Microsoft Planner or some of our other corporate options because we don't need licenses and we don't have compatibility issues. I can assign tasks to anyone with an email address. Really easy to use with no tutorial needed.

Pros

Super easy to deploy and to add users that are not part of your company or on any specific platform. Mobile friendly.

Cons

I haven't found any features I use to be missing at this time though we are still growing project management / project prioritization tracking with this tool. I may have updates soon.

Beware the learning curve

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Trello is by far the number one recommended project management tool because it's free and mobile accessible. There are tons of options to share projects with your team and is a fantastic way to keep your content writing on schedule or whatever you are working on .

Cons

I am struggling a bit with the learning curve going from paper and pencil to a digital planner. But I think that's more my own personal struggle rather than the programs. Well it is still not my go-to like my paper planner, Trello is becoming an easy way to keep myself organized without having to carry my paper planner.

Trello, your assistant task planner.

Reviewed 10 months ago

We really like the task planner, and the schedule planner, task management is really easy and you can follow the results of everyone in your team, making really important the action of registering every step along the way of a project.

Pros

I think the most impactful thing about Trello is the amount of planning you can make with the information it provides, you can track and plan every step along the way of your project. It's insanely useful when you need decision-making and results.

Cons

I think maybe the free tier version could have more upgrades before going into the premium license, we could not have it because we needed to pass a certain amount of steps into using it, but after we did we never turn around.

Good product with an easy to use interface. If you need a solid project management/task management solution, Trello could be a very good option for you. Just make sure to have the conversation with the Team before building out your columns & tasks.

Pros

I like Trello for the ease of use and the hyper-focused way to in my opinion to conduct weekly or daily review (SCRUM) sessions. Managing meetings bases upon tasks is an excellent way to optimize time and to "catch-up" with your teams going's on...

Cons

This is a good task management software. The downside is that it is a stand-alone project management software. With the introduction to MS Teams and Planner/To-Do, I find more versatility in the Microsoft world including MS Teams than I do in a stand alone Trello at this point.

Microsoft Planner

Fills a hole (just)

Basic - to the point of not using it after a few initial attempts. The limitations made its use pointless. I recommend Trello over Planner to colleagues.

Pros

MS Planner is a bare bones planner tool. It does the basics of creating tasks and allocating them with, or without schedules. It triggers reminder emails and has basic dashboard views for users to see where their efforts need to be directed.

Cons

When using this product with an O365 licence it requires the plan to be associated with a Team (group). I don't understand why it simply can't be associated to my account. Linking it to a group enables the group members to see and edit what is in the plan. There's no security that will allow me to enable plan access to specific team members - so it can't serve a subgroup of the Team. You also cannot have a plan for Private Teams Channels - who are, again, a subgroup of the Team. So you can't build the plan privately or share it privately. This is a major shortcoming.
