2017-06-12

Together with the mobile app it super easy to create checklists and save files for each project and task.

Pros

Each card is easy to use and can include checklists, files, comments and due dates.

Cons

So I have to use Toggl as a Chrome extension to be able to track time on Trello tasks.

Trello is awesome. I've used it for three years with multiple companies, freelancing, and personal.

2017-11-07

project management, agile team, increased productivity, increased collaboration- especially for remote teams.

Pros

Trello is incredibly simple, and easy to use. The UI is beautiful and the tool does everything I need it to do.

Cons

The only reason we are looking at alternatives after three years is because our organization has grown tremendously so we are looking for a more complex project management solution to track things like task time, and make it easier to reference spreadsheets and project plans within the project or task cards.

Great for Small Businesses and Freelancers

2018-03-24

Pros

The core UI is simple and easy to use, even for new users, which helps in quicker onboarding of team members, vendors and other third-party service providers collaborating on a project.

Cons

Time tracking requires third-party API integrations, as does Issue Reporting and Management.

We tried Trello and thought it did an adequate job meeting our needs.

2018-05-04

Pros

Being able to drag cards around the dashboard was a good tool for visual learners.

Cons

We needed a project management tool to integrative with invoices and billing/labor hours per project, as well as a gantt chart.

Good platform to manage projects

2018-03-13

Trello gave me tools to be able to define my projects, their requirements and the workflow and to ensure that the projects complement each other in a sequential and planned way. Good platform!

Pros

Help teams to collaborate and track projects using kanban-style management.

Cons

There are no charts, time tracking or billing features.

Trello is easy and fun, and it is a very good collaboration solution for managing my team.

2018-05-26

- It gives me reports and insights that I use for analytics purposes.

Pros

- It works fairly simple, with drag-and-drop capabilities and an intuitive interface, yet powerful tool for team management. - Time Tracking is great for staying organized on a specific project or tasks

Cons

- It lacks project management basics such as Gantt charts, time-tracking components, and reporting tools in the free version

Limited application

2017-12-12

Pros

Limited use past a virtual kanban/WIP board, it's good to track progress on a project but stops there.

Cons

Too simple to track overall project status, needs to add the ability format into several views (maybe add a task & Gantt chart view?).

Easy to use kanboard for task and swimlane tracking

2018-06-11

Easy task tracking and project management.

Pros

The UI was easy to interact with and the information was clearly displayed on the screen.

Cons

Honestly there's not much to dislike. I suppose it would be appreciated if you got more free powerups to connect to different services, or if the Saleforce one was free. However, for what we used it for, Trello met and exceeded our expectations.

Trello is the best!

2018-06-04

Tasks tracking and managing

Pros

Trello is great for managing and assigning tasks and collaborating between different teams and projects.

Cons

Not much. Third party integrations do not work perfectly sometimes, but not in a critical way, just some UI issues.

Perfect for personal use or simple project collaboration!

2017-10-05

Pros

I continue to use Trello as a personal task list manager, and it's perfect for this purpose.

Cons

If you need Gantt charts, burndowns, etc., you'll have to look elsewhere.

Trello helps our team to collaborate and track our project's progress efficiently.

2018-05-15

Our team were able to collaborate and track the progress of our projects efficiently using this software.

Pros

It is fast and the best part is that the notifications for tasks are synced to all your devices.

Cons

Most business users especially the not tech savvy users or the manager will prefer to the look on graphs/charts for presentation and reports.

Simple, but effective task management

2018-05-29

Quick task tracking and iteration

Pros

Trello really excels when you need to keep track of things that represent a subset of major work: team to-do list for next week (like action-items from a meeting), working a specific task and want to keep track of arising questions, etc.

Cons

While you can def track a project with Trello, there are far more powerful tools out there that provide better insights.

Trello is a useful tool to organize tasks and "to dos" into boards. It helps in executing a project.

2018-05-08

Trello also serves as a reminder in our tasks to be executed to a certain schedule.

Pros

I really like the drag-and-drop of cards as it like really a traditional board but much better.

Cons

I would just like to suggest the developers of Trello to add visual representations like Gantt charts, calendars and graphs.

Used Trello to create projects

2018-04-04

Easy to use and work together.

Pros

Very easy to integrate with Google Drive.

Cons

It would be helpful to add time-tracking tools to measure the time spent on a project, but that is a minor detail.

Organize, collaborate and manage in a very easy way

2018-05-23

It's a great tool for organizing from professional to personal tasks and to collaborate with teams.

Pros

Also, I really like the ability to collaborate with teams, making annotations in the cards, tagging with different labels and even making checklists of things inside every task.

Cons

I understand the tool is for Kanban boards but it would be nice to have Gantt Charts in order to see the timeline of a project.

Trello is a great thought and task organizer for team collaboration.

2018-05-14

Team organization and ability to track task progress.

Pros

Can attach images, files, checkboxes, and comments to each "card" activity to understand how progress is being made towards goals.

Cons

Cards can stack up vertically and horizontally, I don't really like the horizontal scroll, would be nice to be bale to condense certain columns.

Great, but lacking overview

2018-05-24

More efficient/better tracked communication than email; powerful task management.

Pros

The notification system is great and the keyboard shortcuts make working quickly and efficiently a breeze.

Cons

If the dashboard were to add this feature it would be my go-to; however, because I found myself to far spread out over multiple boards without overview capacity I ended up trying other software (Favro; MeisterTask).

Easy-to-use interface and collaborative features make working with a small team through simple tasks and to-do lists more organized and manageable.

Pros

Easy-to-use interface and collaborative features make working with a small team through simple tasks and to-do lists more organized and manageable.

The software uses a lot of third-parties and is not good for a larger collaborative group.
