Trello Review

5 2 weeks ago New

Comments: I love how visual Trello is. It's easy to see at a glance where I am at with all my projects and what needs my attention next.

Pros:

Trello is my preferred project management system, one that I use in my business as well as to manage my clients' projects. It's simple enough to use yet robust enough to handle high level of details.

Cons:

I haven't really explored the Butler function and automations enough so can't talk to that aspect of Trello.

Alternatives Considered: Asana

Reasons for Choosing Trello: I just couldn't get used to how Asana is laid out. Trello works much better for my brain.

Switched From: Asana

Reasons for Switching to Trello: See above.

Your fist step into task management software

3 last month New

Comments: Very easy to use, friendly and intuitive interface and lots of features to collaborate and personalize your boards. Good price for the money and decent support team.

Pros:

We love the visual aspect of it: different boards let you appreciate each project individually. You can go and modify the order of the elements or give priority to some task by putting it on top. It's a very basic and easy to use software.

Cons:

If you have a big project, Trello is not the answer. This software is aimed mostly to small operations and small creative agencies. If you need to track software development, this is not the best choice.

Alternatives Considered: Gain and Basecamp

Reasons for Switching to Trello: We had a small team and budget, Trello was the right choice for us.

A good task manager for small teams

4 2 months ago

Comments: I use Trello to manage the tasks of my part time workers, especially as we are working remotely. I am able to set up projects for the via cards and add any resource material they might need.

Pros:

I can use this to manage the task of several workers at the same time. Each of my employees have a board and I am able to add tasks to the board directly from my email. In that way, I am able to take things off of my to-do list because I know that the task is captured somewhere else and the job will be completed.

Cons:

I often have a difficult time building out a project in a way that makes sense to me. We use this much less for large project and much more for smaller individual tasks. I also wish there was a easier way of styling the cards. I have attempted to use the Trello code in the cards but unless you use them frequently, you have to relearn them all over each time.

Alternatives Considered: Asana

Reasons for Choosing Trello: Smartsheets was a powerful system but we didn't have anyone to manage it. Trello is much more simple to use if you do not have a project manager on staff.

Switched From: Smartsheet

Reasons for Switching to Trello: The Card system was a better system for task management for us.

Golden standard for kanban boards

5 2 months ago

Comments: Trello has helped my jumpstart new projects with multiple teams across different industries, organize my work and personal life, and organize knowledge spread across different continents.

Pros:

Trello boards are the go-to place to start a small to medium project planning and execution process. The product is intuitive and easy to use. Although the team added so many features over the last few years, it's not too cluttered. Great mobile app support including offline. Vast array of interconnectivity and 3rd party apps.

Cons:

Sometimes could be slower to load and heavy on older computers. Older APIs like IFTTT are not maintained well (e.g. queries would be a welcome addition). iOS shortcut support is also clunky (querying open tasks).

I SWEAR by Trello

5 2 months ago

Pros:

Trello is the perfect software for tracking, planning, and anything else you need. I currently use Trello for project management, marketing, content bank creation and organization, to-do lists, and so much more. I use Trello multiple times a day for almost every aspect of my business. It is easy to use, easy to share with others on your team, and fast too! I’ve used some project planning tools in the past that are so slow and I can confidently say I don’t have that problem with Trello.

Cons:

Trello is very much what you make of it, and it has a bit of a learning curve to begin with. I would recommend new users start with a pre-made template and work from there as it helps get you situated with the site and it’s features
