Easy to use not robust enough

The ease of use is great, we used it for about 3 months and it was easy to learn and catch up the team with the software.

Cons

We went with Monday.com instead.

When you just need to get going on a project, there's nothing better

2019-03-02

I can't really comment on the likes of Basecamp and Asana, having only been invited to other's workspaces, but have used Monday.com fairly extensively and yet still return to Trello for personal organisation and projects.

Pros

- The Free option gives you everything you need to get going (and their Freemium model works well—I've already gotten enough value out of Trello to be feel happy upgrading as the team grows) - There's very little (if anything) to learn to get going - Completely customisable, and super flexible. There are enough power-ups to make any style of project work - Super collaborative. Easy to bring people in to cards and notify them of upcoming deadlines, as well as share boards with those outside of the organisation. - Has a fantastic cross-device experience. It's just as easy to jump into a board on mobile

Cons

Honestly, I really cannot think of any cons to Trello right now, hence why I keep returning despite having had the opportunity to work in more expensive project management software.

Trello Review

2019-04-17

Overall Trello in a great app for smaller teams. When the team size grows, things could get...messy. Since we outgrew Trello, we had to change applications, but up until that point we enjoyed using Trello.

Pros

I really liked that Trello can be integrated with a bunch of other office applications like Google Forms, Slack, and Monday.com. I also liked the different plugins that we could use to modify our board.

Cons

I didn't like the horizontal scrolling. It was okay for small boards, but once we got a larger team and needed more card columns, it started to get unbearable. It just wasn't that "clean" anymore and a few members on our team went back to paper scheduling instead of using the app.

Excellent app with some frustrations

2019-01-29

Overall it's good but particularly compared to monday.com it feels like there could be a lot more customisability; it feels a little behind the best of the market on flexibility.

Pros

It's super easy to use - almost everyone I've introduced to it has just picked it up and used it in minutes. Super clean visual interface, and one of the best prices in the field.

Cons

Sometimes feels the meat of the information is buried a level too deep - ie the need to click into a card to see to-do lists.

There are better tools available...

2018-05-03

Pros

Good way to manage important personal or business tasks with a team. They make it fun---at least more fun than digging through e-mails or searching cloud folders for specific documents, etc.

Cons

I started using Trello before I knew about tools such as Asana or DaPulse, Monday.com, etc.

Trello gets it done...

2018-11-21

it's simple, It works, we use it all day everyday. End of story...

Pros

I starting using Trello after being sold on one of their competitors (Monday.com) who bombarded me with ad after ad about how easy it was to use.

Cons

I don't mean to be a complainer but since you asked... I wish I could get more modules on my 13 inch laptop instead of having to scroll from side to side. This may already be possible but I just have not figured it out.

Fantastic for visual status of each task

2018-06-21

Quick status of the team tasks.

Pros

You can make visual lists called pulses that easily you see what every member of your team is doing. Fantastic for directors who need to quickly see what is going on and do something to improve the execution of a task.

Cons

Not so customizable as Trello. Trello got Power-Ups that add a number of new functionalities to the main tool.

Pros

Cons

I currently use Trello, not Monday, because Trello is free.

Super Easy to use & budget friendly!

2018-06-14

Pros

Monday uses a super clean and simple interface. There aren't a million options for teams and tasks like I've seen with other platforms. This is simple and clean.

Cons

It isn't as graphically visual as Trello. I love that Trello boards show you the attached graphics outside of the task.

Waste of time (ironically)

2018-11-23

Meh - I would use Asana, Jira or Trello over this software any day.

Pros

We tried to implement this software at the last startup I worked for but it was a massive failure. Entering the projects you're working on is easy but then you have to also enter some arbitrary number of hours for tasks and before you know it you've assigned yourself 143 hours worth of tasks to tackle this week.

Cons

Prioritizing isn't easy and all of this get visualized in Gantt charts which I find totally useless. When tasks don't get finished by the end of the week you just end up shifting them to the next week. We spent more time moving stuff around and setting it up than it was worth and the PM trying to manage things still just ended up chasing everyone like before.

Beautiful UI to manage projects and todo list

2018-06-30

Not enough to stick with the plan as our business currently finds success with Trello

Pros

It has a very simple and intuitive UI for managing projects. Everything you'd want to keep track of the status and info related to a specific project whether ongoing or temporary. The many templates give good inspiration for how you can use monday.com to get the most of our your productivity.

Cons

No free or inexpensive plan to use personally makes it specific to business and teams is a downside. If I find success using a tool at work it is nice to be able to use it personally for both learning a tool better as well as trying out different styles of using a tool.

Monday the Saver

2018-10-06

monday.com has been a great tool to access all the work in a busy enviroment.

Pros

The UI of the web application is so intractable Sharing really time instance of the board and task in real time Keeping things color-coded and open to shareable with the team Basic package is of great value comapared to the other softwares out there in the market

Cons

I dont have any cons really associated with monday.com It is really better then its competition such as Trello.

Big and complete view for your team

2018-03-26

Pros

Which I found very useful and important for my business is that you are able to see what people are doing on a big and complete calendar. We are a small business with 5 workers, so it's very helpful to see what each person is doing and needs to do in the future. It's also very friendly for a design or marketing company.

Cons

I found it a bit expensive, since is very similar as Trello and you can use Trello for free to a certain point.

Monday is a Better Designed, but More Expensive Trello

2018-08-23

Pros

Checking things off a list can be done almost anywhere so there has to be added bonus with a platform for something to stick, and with Monday that is its design and UX.

Cons

A lot of tools like Asana and Trello offer extended trial periods so by comparison this tool is fairly pricey.

Gets the job done, simple and efficient

2019-01-12

I'm happy with Monday.com and will continue to use it for my client.

Pros

It's SO user-friendly. Within a few minutes, I had figured out how to get what I need from it. It's pretty self-explanatory, although they do offer little guides and tutorials along the way. It's also easy to communicate with other team members, assign tasks, see your own tasks, and leave comments. I feel like Monday.com has the extra bells and whistles if you want them, but it's also great for people like me, who just want a simple and straightforward project management system.

Cons

It's a cool alternative to other options like Trello and Teamwork (which I also use).

Easy to map out steps

2018-10-04

I really enjoyed this tool as it solved my biggest problem of creating an easily trackable task chart that involved many people and many tasks. It's easy for team members to collaborate and also very brightly colored which is a nice change from other softwares :)

Pros

I used monday.com for a very long process in one of my work tasks that involved multiple people. I was very easily able to map out each step and each person could tick off when they had completed their job so we could constantly see the progress being made.

Cons

In the end my colleagues found trello to suit our needs overall but I believe for certain tasks this is the perfect tool.

The only Monday I like

2019-04-12

We used to use Trello for the longest time, but when our boards got too big, it got difficult to use.

Pros

One thing I really like about Monday.com is that the customer support always seems to want to help. If you have and problem that you can't solve and you ask them for help, it takes less than 10 minutes to get an answer back. Not only that, but if you have any suggestion on improving the app, you can give feature requests and some of your ideas will be implemented down the road!

Cons

The only thing I could think of is that the online support is all through chat? It's not that big of a drawback, but sometimes it's nice to call instead.

Easy to visualize and prioritize projects

2018-05-12

Trello helps me track my executive projects in a way that makes sense to me.

Pros

I like that I can assign tasks to myself and urgency levels relatively easily. While tracking projects, I can use Monday and it is much less time intensive than using software like Salesforce. There is no customization needed to make it look good and understandable.

Cons

Hard to say, it's much more visual than salesforce, more sane than sending slack messages to myself or calendar reminders, and more collaborative than Trello.
