The best Kanban tool, but not only!

2018-08-15

I can see at a glance what I have to do everyday and can also track time for each task, thanks to custom fields!

Pros

It combines very well with the "Views" feature.

Cons

The free version of Zenkit may be enough to test the product, but once you have more than 5 members in your team, you have to upgrade your account to a premium plan. Anyway, once you'll discover Zenkit, you may want to support the team behind this awesome product!

Simple & Organized

2019-09-12

It is a space that gives you the flexibility you need and puts you in control of your own tasks.

Pros

It is very beneficial to have one place where I can track my goals and projects. It is also not too complicated for users.

Cons

No cons to report here. Even the price of the upgraded version isn’t too bad, unlike some other services on the market.

Zenkit Is Everything

2017-08-01

Zenkit is a single space for everything you need to manage a project

Pros

This is great for budgets, kanban/Agile, Work Breakdown Structure, and collaboration. Custom tags, Task Assignments, File Attachments.

Cons

Future options for MindMap, Gannt, and report-ready files would be nice.

Powerful and on the rise

2020-08-19

Very positive, I work with zenkit nearly two years and it helped me a lot in structuring my life and work.

Pros

I really like the kanban and hierarchy mode to structure my overall projects (collection) and its different smaller tasks within.

Cons

With the new zenkit to do software it should be more easy to track your daily and weekly tasks for each project, by integrating the collections into the to do software.

One tool, many solutions.

2019-06-25

Our teams were getting saturated with the amount of projects and the moving parts we were keeping track of.

Pros

The multiple views allows us to craft specific solutions related to our projects.

Cons

The fine grained customizability was somewhat daunting for most new users. It's very power made them afraid to learn it's functions freely. They worried about breaking it somehow. Usually watching the videos was enough.

A great Trello alternative

2019-11-15

Streamlining my workflow and having an overview of things suits me very well.

Pros

I love the Zenkit views which are data views of things like Kanban boards, List, Calendar, Table and Mindmap.

Cons

There's not much to dislike about this software at all and this is a solid project management application.

I LOVE this product!

2018-11-30

Our team needs to use project/task management tools in multiple ways, so a traditional tool doesn't work for us.

Pros

But it also gives us the ability to have each team member view that information in a way that makes sense to them.

Cons

Honestly, my only gripe is that when I need to contact support for anything, we're on different time zones. Eastern in the US for us, Germany for Zenkit.

Very interesting and positive.

2017-08-02

organization of information and flexibility of viewing and structuring it

Pros

The ability to see information / data in different views types with filters is very useful and fits my work type well.

Cons

Not much, Some form of aggregating boards up for reporting as I use it for task and project management would be useful, I understand this is in the development roadmap.

Best alternative to popular managing tools

2018-11-29

It has become my main project management tool for projects that I don't manage on Android devices or with clients that don't speak English.

Pros

It has a high level of personalization, lets you edit multiple cards at a time, work offline, view your collections as kanban boards, lists, calendars and even mindmaps.

Cons

You can't add items using the "share" feature on Android and the platform is in English only.

Excellent, Inexpensive: PM & Tracking Tool

2018-11-29

Currently using this for my personal life and work life to keep my projects on track.

Pros

Format options: Love the ability to switch back and forth between different formats (Kanban, List, Schedule, etc.).

Cons

The Windows desktop app appears to just be a web-wrap, which means it is a little glitchy, resource heavy and I have to sign in over & over again.

Best task management/workflow app for students and researchers

2019-06-26

I am using Zenkit to plan/organize multiple research projects that I'm juggling.

This, in turn, helps me prioritize what to do next.

I would like to see a gantt chart feature and some tools to help estimate the time it will take to complete a project.

Incredible data visualization, easy financial record management, and great for high-level project management.

They haven't yet released mobile apps, but that will add a lot of value to the product once they finish.

More Functionality than other project management software

2018-11-29

I can have each individual "collection" set to whatever view is best for that collection, whether that is Kanban, List, etc.

Pros

I love the new 2-factor authentication option even for personal (free) plans. The biggest functionality pro over any other system I've tried is the Mindmap option.

Cons

No option to add additional visuals like photos or icons to individual Kanban cards until you are on a paid plan. When entering information into a Kanban card, it can be difficult to know where your cursor is if you use the tab key to move to next field.

Offers a variety of ways to project manage. Great for visual planners

2017-08-01

Pros

All helps with viewing my projects in-and-out to make sure I don't miss anything and to help me prioritize.

Cons

Being so robust - you do try to use all the features and categories - can be a little overwhelming viewing the information for each task.

Zenkit is my go to task and project management app, and for good reason!

2018-05-10

Flexible views give me everything I need to organize my tasks, projects, goals, and teams.

Pros

Go from viewing tasks in standard "To Do" lists to a two-level Kanban (Trello-style) board with a single click.

Cons

As a non-profit, I would love to have the ability to add more people to our team without paying more, but that is more about me being cheap than about the software or pricing itself.

Very easy to use ... just needs gantt

2017-10-14

This allows a team to engage and share ideas conveniently from different locations, and I would give it a 10 out of 10, if it allowed for task dependencies and had a gantt display.

Pros

The kanban flexibility is awesome! Being able to group in multiple different ways, and visualize notes and attachments is very useful.

Cons

With complex projects, setting dependencies and having a gantt visual would make this the software for us.
