Pros: Love the simplicity to use and the short and easy learning curve. Every functionality is placed and working kind of intuitively. I am also using the Iphone app, which is absolutely amazing as well, all the functionality of the desktop version is available every time , everywhere in my pocket. Zenkit really means one thing and this is Productivity at it's best. And last but not least is the FREEDOM to use the app without any limitations of the features ABSOLUTELY FOR FREE!!! I am a startup founder who just left his full time corporate job to pursue his dreams and at this time cash is really important for me. Zenkit to plan absolutely everything from the concept to task to be executed. Over the years i found that when brainstorming the most convenient way for me are by using Mind maps. I was using Trello, then Asana before that, but the lack of mind maps made me looking constantly for a other solutions, which will give me the opportunity to easily convert the ideas in tasks and build whole working projects. Well Zenkit does exactly this, from ideas to full projects to be managed with most effective productivity and project management techniques in the easiest possible ways. Brainstorm with Mind maps, create task and execute them in Kanban or List, then easily present or manage them as full blown tables ( i even almost stopped using Excel ). I also like is the constant evolving off the app in only positive way. The team behind it really know their job!

Overall: It makes me get organised and productive in my job. As person trying to implement and stick to the Agile methodology in my work, makes everything really easy for me.

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. Another cool option is that you can create the Mindmap even if you originally started the collection as a Kanban board. I've used this feature to great success multiple times.

Additional views including List, Table, and Calendar. I like the multiple options as each project may have specific needs. I use the List for individual tasks, calendar view for my overall schedule, and Kanban for individual projects.

Customization and ability to add fields (instead of being forced to only add them as comments).

Cons: The User Interface can seem a little utilitarian and not as friendly as some other software systems.

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.

Overall: I was looking for a free or freemium project management software, however, I found other project management software to be limited in what I needed it to be able to do. Zenkit fixed all of my functionality issues and then some. I can have each individual "collection" set to whatever view is best for that collection, whether that is Kanban, List, etc. I love how I can customize various fields and include key information that I need to have or be able to sort by (when I switch to Table view). I don't mind the lack of visuals (photos, icons) available via the free version and the space allowed is adequate for personal use. I definitely recommend Zenkit over other major project management tools I've worked with previously.

Pros: The many ways to enter and use the tool. App. Web. Web Offline. All relevant platforms.

The many ways of handling information: list. kanban. mindmap. table. calendar.

The design. Awesome.

The flexibility. Need a special field to hold information? No problem, just create it.

Need automated reminders, etc. No deal, enter their specifics and get reminded.

The support. Individual. Quick. Listening.

The numerous templates. Save time by just applying prepared configs for your individual topic.

Cons: I dont understand the question... :) Honestly, havent found a downside so far!

Overall: First of all ZENKIT got me by the amazing support and friendly people behind the product. Quick reacting, personal and really interested in what the customer is doing or requesting.

The tool itself can basically do everything, from normal lists to KANBAN ending at MindMap functionality. I can use whatever I feel like and can even use employees to work on problems THEIR way while I can supervise MY way. Or work together as a team. But thats just work - I also use it in private areas. SO currently I use to manage the issues and challenges of MY PRIVATE LIFE / RALLY RACING TEAM / BIKE RACING TEAM / LUXURY CAR DEALERSHIP / CHARITY BIKERs CLUB / BARBER SHOP / PRIVATE CONSULTING COMPANY / CAR CLEANING COMPANY and so on. And I dont even use 50% of the functionality. Whatever you need to organize - ZENKIT is the tool!

And if you are not sure know how to use it or what else to do with it - look at the blog entries and videos. The concept of GTD for example opened up to me through one of their blog entries! And finding a template in the tool helped to accelerate!

I LOVE this product!

Pros: This product gives our team what we need in terms of tracking for projects and goals. But it also gives us the ability to have each team member view that information in a way that makes sense to them. It doesn't force us to use spreadsheets or kanbans, but rather gives us options. Our director loves giant spreadsheets, one teammate prefers mind maps, and I would rather see a kanban board. We each get the same data in the view we prefer.

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. That's not really a big deal though.

Overall: Our team needs to use project/task management tools in multiple ways, so a traditional tool doesn't work for us. We tested over 250 tools. In the end, Zenkit is the only one that gives us what we need. We have a course catalog that we maintain - tracking live projects and their on-going maintenance. We also have annual goals for our team and individual team members. We provide support for a website, so have a need to track items like tickets. And finally, we get random requests that aren't attributed to annual goals and need to be tracked separately. We were able to create 4 projects in Zenkit, each with different fields, views, and uses. But they all link together. It's made us much more efficient in our workflows and reporting.

Pros: This is the most effective tool/environment that I have found for navigating between a big picture "concept" (blue sky) view/conversation about a complex issue through the detailed work of executing tasks and delegating assignments for people to complete on a timely basis.

In my past, I have had difficulty helping executives to understand the many moving parts to create a thorough solution.

However, using Zenkit, I have been able to help people who are "visiting" an issue to understand/sponsor/champion a go-forward plan which captures their emotional as well as verbal support. More importantly, I have found the success to be repeatable - not just a one-off with a single personality-type.

Cons: The mindmap view has been critical to my success. However, because Zenkit can only print the mindmap view from a screen capture copy, I am often not comfortable handing out hardcopies because the image sometimes blurs (the online view is fine - I manage the browser setting).

My one wish is that Zenkit would offer an output version which can expand without pixelating.

Overall: Awesome ... effective ... and the support people respond to online chat questions within a day.

I'll never go back to Trello! The flexibility of display and maintenance is amazing.

Pros: Ability to switch views depending on my focus. Mass-maintenance is easy with the table view and I can pivot the Kanban view to slice and dice between priotity, project....whatever I want. Lots of improvements keep appearing including recent mindmap view which I haven't got my head around yet but will save a lot of re-keying. Zenkit is in Zapier so that allows automation from Evernote for me and a ton of other options available. Customer support has been fantastic - very responsive and with a clear vision. I'm using it for everything from GTD with work projects to planning my next holiday.

Cons: I'd like to see the API exposed. I had some automation in Trello that fed back status to Evernote. Having said that, with Zapier loading the details automatically from Evernote to Zenkit, I prefer a bit of manual maintenance with the view flexibility of ZenKit to Trello with the automation :-)

Overall: I like to use a Kanban view for managing my work. ZenKit has very flexible ways of viewing my workflow in a Kanban format, but isn't limited to a Kanban view, so for mass-maintenance I can switch to a table view. Or if I'm planning, I can switch to a mind-map view. All the same data - no re-keying. Zapier integration means it plays nicely with the other software in my workflow.

Pros: Zenkit has a great many features to aid productivity. Like most online kanban tools it allows you to create your own columns to suite the process you're managing. But the kanban board is just the start as the same data can be presented as a list, a table or a calendar and the data can be manipulated in each of these views. This makes it extremely easy to view and update the data.

Each individual 'card' can be customised with additional labels, checklists, references to other cards in other collections, formulas, text fields, dates and many other custom field types. Zenkit really is kanban on steroids.

Cons: Probably the mindmap view of the cards. I've not found a use for this view, but this shouldn't detract from the overall quality and functionality of the product.

Overall: The main use I have for Zenkit is to manage software changes in a validated environment. Each change request hs it's own card which is then tracked through the development and validation process and into production. The cards contain references to cards representing requirements, design and test documents that need to be updated as part of the change. Individual tasks for the change are presented in check lists and the review and approval cycles are managed in seperate check lists.

Clean, beautiful, and minimal UI. Excellent user experience.

Pros: I love how simple it is to use Zenkit. A lot of project management software often times have a lot of features and an over-complicated user interface. A lot of the time I find myself clicking aimlessly just to accomplish a simple task. What I love about Zenkit is it's simplicity, its ease in creating projects, to-do's within said project, linking to-do's to other projects, too, and having it all stored in an easily accessible sidebar, without any clutter. It gets straight to the point.

Cons: Zenkit is a webapp, and as such, is amazing at storing all your projects and to-do's online, so if you need to access them from another computer, you can do so. This is always a plus, but an app would be very helpful, too. In those times of disconnecting from the internet or having a website blocker on my browser for productivity, having access to the site without having to tinker too much with my blocking app would be great.

Overall: Structure, organization, and a beautiful interface and user experience.

Pros: The ability to relate kanban cards (in my case, products and people, the latter numbering about 60) across boards in a way that is immediate and clear. I can see what outcomes I could nudge people about, or keep in mind, when communicating with them about something else. I'm also impressed by the support -- my report of a minor problem received an almost instant, and personal, response -- and, generally, the sense that this software permits creative applications.

Cons: I'm using the free version simply because I'm wary of subscriptions (also not something a university finance department copes with readily), though I know that's the norm: easier to pay more up front, once. That leaves me with a limited range of display options, most of which (white on dark) aren't legible. An IoS app (which is on the way) would be useful, as would a single user's guide: again, I realize blogs and videos are the norm, but I'd like a single source I could search. Zenkit offers a variety of views -- kanban, calendar, table -- but each is confined to a single board, and it would be helpful to be able to generate a master view so that all deadlines, e.g., are available to view in one screen.

Overall: As explained in the review: confidence.

Pros: The ability to change views of the information you input. For some thoughts I like lists, for others mind-maps are more appropriate, so I like to have the ability to change that on the fly without much hassle if I need to. It works just as expected. I like the ability to add your own fields to the cards and that everything is searchable. What I also appreciate is that you can choose how much detailed information the elements should have. This always depends on the use case I am working on, so I like that option. The app is responsive and snappy. Also, markdown & html support ! Customization is also all quite nice. Errors patches are deployed quickly and support is responsive.

Cons: Sometimes it's a little buggy, but not in work-stopping ways. One time the "Add Item" on the kanban view was below the kanban-cards so I couldn't reach it. However I could still use the "+" button and the error disappeared after a few days. Other than that, there have a been just a couple of times where the site was down, but after a while it worked again. Integrations using Zapier are still not that advanced (altough I don't if the developers can do anything about that). Anxiously waiting for the Android App.

Overall: For a student, the ability to organize some of my private projects for free. As mentioned in the review, the main feature that convinced me to try this app was the fact that you can change the views of your data (kanban, list, mind-map) and display as little or as much information pro item that you need. I haven't tried the collaboration features yet but the few times I needed to share something with a fellow student it worked just fine. Main benefit is just an easy way to organize and have a controlled overview of some of my projects. Also, markdown support is a must for me, for compatibility to other apps.

Pros: It is easy to use and you can start immediatly without watching all your (also great) videos. Zenkit offers you a great overview over your tasks and helps me as a team leader to get an overview over the tasks of my team members. The Kanban view is perfekt for organising our daily business but I also like the mind map function for getting new ideas. Another feature I like very uch is the connection with Slack. And - last but not least - you have a great support. I wrote you two times via facebook and you answered immediately!

Cons: I work with different collections: One for each team and project I am working with and one for my own tasks. So I have three different collections with three different tasks. To get a better overview over my daily tasks I would love to have an overview over all my tasks from each collection in one Kanban.

Overall: I get an overview over my teams tasks and the daily business. I am able to create and think about new ideas by using the mind map function and I am able to connect Zenkit to other devices I'm using while work (e.g. Slack). For me and my team, Zenkit makes coworking very easy.

Pros: What I like the most with Zenkit is the ability to customize a board to your needs. The most interesting features to me are custom fields. If you use Zenkit as a project management tool, you can add fields for "estimated time" and "time spent" for every task.

It combines very well with the "Views" feature. You don't have to stick with the Kanban view and can choose between Kanban, task list, table, calendar (useful with due dates on tasks) and even mind maps.

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!

Overall: I use Zenkit everyday to manage the projects I'm working on (website development mainly). 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: Zenkit has quickly become my favorite task and project management app. It combines the strength of several different utilities into one incredibly convenient package.

One of the key concepts that sets Zenkit apart is the ability to change views. Go from viewing tasks in standard "To Do" lists to a two-level Kanban (Trello-style) board with a single click. Feel like laying the items out in a mind map? One more click away. Need to batch update items or schedule them on a calendar? Zenkit can do that too with additional views.

As you dig deeper, you find even more functionality. Link collections together to plan projects, track inventory, or follow sales leads. This is honestly where it leaves other systems in the dust. I have the ability to set up projects, connect them to weekly priorities, and then assign the next actions on a master task collection and easily switch between them all.

I really can't say enough about this incredible piece of software!

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.

Overall: Flexible views give me everything I need to organize my tasks, projects, goals, and teams. Having one central location for all this information and being able to quickly adapt it to meet my current needs puts Zenkit in a class of its own.

Pros: It is an extremely versatile product, as I can change to my calendar, list of tasks, Kanban, ... with just one click! New features have been added since I first started using it, and I love it more and more. Additionally, as I use it just for me personal, it is free!

I currently use it for organising my tasks related to my PhD, as I am working on different projects at the same time. I tried using Asana and Trello as well, but they are not as versatile as Zenkit!

Cons: The recent addition of the Mind Map is not exactly as I would want it. I would like to add different mind maps to one project, but all nodes should be linked to each other, which makes it impossible to create multiple mind maps. Also, the root I would make, would be the name of my project, and I find it annoying that it would show up in my Kanban/lists. Anyway, this is still a very small annoyance, and I do not use the mind map anyway.

Overall: A very easy way to organise my tasks and projects of my PhD project.

Pros: I like the many ways of displaying, organizing and sorting the different tasks. This is very helpful to get the exact overview you need at a time.

Also, the search funtion is very efficient and finds tasks by any keywords, so it is easy to look up former Performances and what is currently going on.

Cons: At first, the whole programme seems overwhelming, and I think I still have not discovered nearly all features. But as soon as I dared using it, I managed to accustum myself quite quickly and also found the functions and Features needed for now.

Overall: We manage the work load in our team in zenkit on a two-week basis. This helps us organize, assign and rank the on-going tasks and always keep a good overview of what one is supposed to be doing, what others do, who might be able to help or who might need help, the overall progress, etc.

Pros: Zenkit ist really easy to use, works on alle divides, the mobile version makes it easy to do even Wunderlist-kind of small task and get the good feeling of get shit done".

The complexity of Zenkit makes ist also possible to work on full srum-type projects.

Cons: I do not have reals cons. In the two years of daily use of the software, a couple of bugs and wishes occur, were sent to zenkit's costumer relations and were fixed immediately.

Overall: Zenkit is a great tool to organize task - for private or work related projects.

There are way simpler and more complex tools on the market, I do love Zenkit - and recommended it a lot to more than a dozen different startups.

Pros: I've used list software for years to remember all the little things in my life. Zenkit takes that a step further with the different views available. I personally use the calendar and list view every day. The filters are also great and easy to setup.

Cons: I am using the free version so I need to use a workaround for recurring tasks since that feature is only for paid customers. The android app is also frequently very slow and offline mode doesn't always work.

Overall: I am using zenkit to keep track of my personal life in a modified GTD style. It has worked better than any other software I've tried, mostly thanks to the views and filters.

Pros: - In Zenkit, I can unite all tools needed to have the job done. I can easily change the way how I see my project without needing other applications.

- I am free to add various forms of information that my project or tasks need, either through text, checklist, links, files, labels, etc.

- It is easy to create connections between other cards or pieces of information, making the macro and the micromanagement easy to visualize.

- Through the filter tool, you can easily find any kind of information. You can even search using multiple variables, making the filtering even more powerful.

Cons: A way to measure the time spent on the tasks would be a great metric that, unfortunately, Zenkit doesn't have it yet.

Overall: I am more organized, productive and happy with Zenkit.

Pros: I found this software when searching for a simple web-based relational database to be shared between me and another academic researcher, we need to organize some research data for a digital humanities project. It meets that need, however, it's also much deeper than that. It has project management features (Kanban, Agile, simple checklists), calendars, basically a one-stop-shop for running a project, including hosting simple database needs (like an inventory), which I have never seen offered in any other project management app. It also has free, fully featured iOS apps, which I have really enjoyed using. I have never been able to access my database on my phone before! (Also an Android app, but I haven't used it.) A lot of bang for the buck here, and free to use at small levels!

Cons: It's ambitious and heavily featured, but probably due to that, still buggy. I have yet to get my imported research database fully working, although I've built a sample database from scratch that works. However, customer service is very responsive (especially considering I am not a paying customer yet) and have been upfront with the problems and their time line in correcting them, so I'm going to stick it out with them for a while longer.

Pros: With Zenkit you can define different Collections and Teams for different purposes and adjust them precisely to their corresponding purpose.

In every collection, you can design items exactly as you need them using different custom fields such as labels, dates, links, attachments. This allows usage of Zenkit for customer tables, scrum boards, simple to-do lists and much more.

Different views (Kanban, table, ...) and filters allow for detailed control over your collections.

Cons: Sometimes, Zenkit is not able to save local changes on the server and you lose some of the applied changes.

Linking items of different collections is unnecessarily complicated.

Pros: We use Zenkit for managing a small team of Big data developers. Having recently gone agile, my team loves the fact that the a new collection is Kanban ready right from the start. However the most important aspect of Zenkit is its ability to switch between the different views. Especially important is the ability to customize the collections and our workflow by adding fields, aggregations , checklists etc. The table view is one of our favourites for this purpose. Also, a lot of our brainstorming eventually ends up in the Mind Map view , capturing the flow of thoughts.

Would also like to give shout out to the excellent support Zenkit offers.

Cons: Having migrated from Trello, it is quite natural that comparisons will be made. Some small functionalities like a web bookmarklet etc are missing. But it is just a matter of time that the highly active dev team will cover these.

Overall: Streamlined the workflow of an agile dev team. A lot of friends are also using them to manage their personal lives

Pros: I find it very intuitive, easy to use and often updated by adding new features

Cons: so far I haven't detected any crucial problems. Normally when I haven't been able to do something it's because I didn't know the functionality and finally trying it I've achieved it.

Overall: In the startup that we are creating we use zenkit to organize our tasks according to the objectives set and the times available to each person. This also makes it easier for us to work remotely without having to organize regular meetings. Everyone knows what to do in each 2-week sprint and can see the progress of the project. It also helps us to detect where there are problems, attending to cards that are abandoned for a while, and allows us to react and modify the strategy when necessary.

Pros: Zenkit is an easy-to-use project management tool that works on different devices and in your web browser. It is perfect to organize a team. You can use it to keep a scrum/kanban board. Moreover, you can use the so-called collections to gather all kinds of data that are important for your team and display and filter this data. The "my team"-tool gives you an overview of the data/tasks that are assigned to you.

Cons: In the "my team" view I would appreciate the possibility to filter for specific collections or to change the order in which the collections are arranged. Additionally, it would be nice to filter for specific labels/stages in the "my team" view.

Pros: It is highly customizable and the support is excellent. The screen didn't originally drag horizontally in Kanban and I mentioned it to support and it was added as a feature that day. The appearance is clean and easy to navigate and they seem to be constantly iterating on new features.

Cons: It is slow. Opening cards takes a several seconds sometimes which is a bummer coming from Trello's usually zippy interface. There are a few interface bugs I get sometimes and I feel the paid membership is a bit costly for what it gets me.

Overall: It basically lets me use it how I want to use it. Where Trello limits you in terms of creative customization, Zenkit gives you the freedom to visualize and organize how you need it.

Pros: The best feature of Zenkit is the ability to switch between many different ways to view the same information. This is a fundamental feature that Trello does not have. As an avid Trello user for both work and personal, I have sometimes been frustrated by the inability to view cards in other ways. Zenkit solves that problem by natively allowing you to switch in between to-do list, Kanban, mind map, spreadsheet and calendar views. They are also working on adding features and integrations that have become standard on other business-class apps.

Cons: Zenkit is still in what I would consider to be the early stages, so there are still features and integrations it is lacking that you would be able to find on other applications. They are also working out the bugs of course and I have run into some of those. One of my main issues with it is that the visual layout and theme is not quite as easy to look at as Trello. This may sound like a nitpicky issue but it actually makes me not want to use it. I have contacted the developers though and they did respond positively to all my concerns.

Overall: While I am not using the software at this time, I did use it for a while to organize my to-do list in a way that helped me prioritize and visualize my tasks in a much more fluid way than I was able to do with Trello, which is what I had been using and have gone back to using. Zenkit has great potential, and I am continuing to watch it as it develops.

Pros: Easy to use and import data. I can easily link it to other task related software using zapier. I love that I can easily switch between a kanban board, list, and mind map

Cons: I wish there was a way to group cards by type in the Mind map instead of having to create separate cards that act as headers. Perhaps by labels or something?

Overall: I use Zenkit to keep track of my tasks at work. It has replaced all of my sticky notes that I used to use to keep track of my to do list. I can now easily prioritize items, take a quick glance at everything I need to do, and check things off. I also use one of the columns to track talking points with my one on one with my boss. I absolutely love it!

Pros: Zenkit offers a lot of great features on their free version. It's become a central part of my business and I opted to upgrade to a paid version after using it for a couple months. Zenkit is great because everything can be customized to your own individual business from workflows to labels.

Cons: It takes a little effort to get up and running because you basically have to customize everything you want the software to do. Because it doesn't have any templates set up, there is a slight learning curve.

Overall: Zenkit has been a huge help from a project management perspective. We've been able to eliminate several spreadsheets we were using for project tracking. The information contained in Zenkit is robust, and because it's completely customizable, it provides the exact information my business needs.

Pros: I've tried every task/project management service out there and there is nothing that matches the simplicity yet flexibility of Zenkit. It's much more powerful than Trello without becoming complicated and it's even able to do most of what JIRA does. The way you can customise it reminds me a bit of Filemaker, in that it gives you the power to create and interact with a custom database whilst abstracting the complexity in doing so.

Cons: It's a little rough around the edges. Currently you cannot delete items, only archive them, and you cannot easily view all archived items in a collection. There's also no easy way to collate data across collections (e.g. if you want to see all items with the same status across collections). But to be fair, the fields in each collection are specific to that collection, so do so will require some work.

Pros: I've tried every task management app available and none of them come even close to Zenkit's range of customizable options. It has tons of features and settings to adjust, from various ways to view and sort upcoming tasks to complex ways to categorize and describe each task

Cons: Since it's still new, there are common errors and features that haven't been fully tested yet.

Overall: For someone who is serious about keeping track of tasks, this app works better than any other. The learning curve can be steep, but that's only because of the unique level of customizability that this app offers.

Pros: The tool is extremely customizable, and the killer features for me is the customizable, 2-dimensional kanban boards, @mention in comments and 'savable' filters. Perfect for agile project management with multiple deliverables and team members.

Cons: If I'm creating new items in kanban mode, I need first to create the item, then open it to add all the details. Would be cool if it popped up the window as part of the first workflow, or better yet; let me use @mention and #labels as I type ( i Know #labels are there, but I need to remember the exact label. I would prefer to have a list pop up as I type)

Overall: I have used it for Opportunity management (sales), Scrum (delivery of system) and various smaller business and personal projects.

Pros: The different option to visualize your information and modulate it to fit your needs and/or your preferences. The fact that you can look at the same information as table, a kanban board, a mindmap, etc... makes Zenkit very user friendly and help having people with different expectation to work on the same information and data.

Cons: I'm sure the visual could still benefit from a nice facelift and maybe give more aesthetic options to the users to make it easier on the eye, but this is not a huge issue.

The website would gain in being a bit more responsive sometimes, but the android application works very nicely.

Overall: I enjoy using Zenkit for personal project and/or management.

I use it to manage my video game collection, but also to organize my tasks at home and personal projects I want to run. I'm looking forward to be able to share the experience with more people and use it on larger projects.

I used it for a first project, for a first company, and didn't hesitate one second about adopting it when I started working in a second company.

Cons: The card display in the kanban view, or in other views, could be more customizable for clarity purposes. Sometimes a bit sluggish, although very fast overall.

Pros: Zenkit offers THE most robust set of features I've found in a Kanban-style project manager. They GO BEYOND just Kanban with very useful, flexible Table and List views, that allow for additional customization. Their new canned Templates are great if you're using this to track things topically or by subject vs. a ToDo > In Process > Done kind of scheme. They are smart, thoughtful designers and actually listen to their users/clients. Zenkit has set a very high bar for other similar products. Frankly, they blow the competition away.

Cons: The cons are so minor it's barely worth mentioning. It would be nice to have a wider palette of colors as background options. Eagerly awaiting the dedicated Android app vs browser access.

Pros: The different views and ways to work with the tasks are incredible: from kanban and calendar views to an excel-lookalike. And most of all it has one feature that a lot of other tools are missing: an aggregation of customized data from different tasks, which enables a powerful capacity / resources planning like "estimated hours per week / hours per day". I have been testing a lot of tools, and this was finally the one that hat all features I needed without being to complex or complicated.

Cons: What could be improved is editing tasks directly without a separate window popping up. This would speed up entering crucial data like "estimated hours". But this is no real con, just something that could be improved :).

Pros: The simplified UI allows you to focus on what needs to be done, while still retaining many important features, under sub menus. The site is accessible and responsive, though I saw mobile clients were in the works.

Cons: Since it's a relatively new project, it's lacking features of other "enterprise" options like Trello or even Jira, but if you need that kind of software you won't be happy with something so simple that allows you to GTD. There are no mobile clients, but they're in the pipeline and I have no doubt they'll continue the intuitive and clean design of the site. Personally this board is all that it needs to be, but none of what it doesn't.

Overall: It's a time saver. Actually, it's a real life saver for me!

Pros: In Zenkit, I especially like:

- the possibility to create different custom data fields, checklists, attach files etc.

- the combination of different selectable views (Kanban, Table, ...)

- the possibility to export data

Cons: - It might be useful to add attachments to individual comments (like in trello) instead all together at the top level of a card

- Export/import functionality could be further extended to allow for easy data exchange between Zenkit and other programs

Overall: We implemented our Scrum process in Zenkit (after starting with paper cards on a board an then using Trello for a while). Furthermore, we plann ressources, tasks, ordering, business contacts etc. in Zenkit. It is great to have everything in a single tool

Pros: The extensive customization possibilities guarantee that you can adopt the product fully to your personal processes and needs.

The fast customer support and export-options add to the great value zenkit gives to its customers.

Cons: Some features are hidden and you have to watch some of the tutorials to get into all features - or ask the very good support.

Overall: A tool, which is fully customized and adopted to our process.

Pros: Something Zenkit does very well is allowing us to chose which view fits our workflow best. Each of my collections was set with a specific view, allowing a easy and comfortable productivity vibe.

Cons: Two things could be better worked. First, some attachments don't have a built-in preview mode and I'm not talking about some dark and secretive file format, but pdf, for instance. Secondly, the table view doesn't play well with the "done" tick in calendar view.

Apart from it I find zenkit great!

Pros: Zenkit allows multiple views of a database. This is great for budgets, kanban/Agile, Work Breakdown Structure, and collaboration. Custom tags, Task Assignments, File Attachments. Zenkit empowers users to get creative in how they enter, manipulate, and view data. It is the Project Management database and collaboration tool of dreams.

Cons: As of yet, exporting data in free version is limited to a csv file of table contents. You have to work to get your info into Excel and then you'll likely do a lot of formatting to make it presentable. Future options for MindMap, Gannt, and report-ready files would be nice.

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

Pros: The agenda and tasks organisation from one presentation to an other are really useful ! We can still use it as a Trello and then have a clearer arrangement as a calendar. Using the french version, I can also say it is rare to have an app translated as Zenkit and made us choose it instead of an other app to organise our activity.

Cons: A shortcut from my Gmail box as Trello for Gmail could be a plus.

I still use Trello with the IT team : they have lots on datas on Trello and are used to it and I can give them the infos from customers directely from my mailbox.

Overall: Gain of time for everyone. As it is really easy to use, we had no colleague reluctant to use it.

Pros: It's got everything. It covers Wunderlist and Trello and a Mindmap solution in one application. It's a robust application that is kind of fun to use due to all the features. Feels like you're using something that's very well thought out.

Cons: It's a bit sluggish, especially the mobile app. I have a thought I want to excute right away ... I hate forgetting what I was going to write becuase my application was a bit slow. I don't think it was my side, but I'll give it the possibility that it's just me and not Zenkit --- but overall, it's excellent.

Pros: It is easy to use from day one, since most tools are structured very user friendly. I like the efficiency it provides for sharing information and tasks with my team.

Cons: I am still learning how use some of the tools in a more efficient way. Although I can find most tools I absolutely need to get the job done, some ways to get there are longer than I would like them to be, especially with repeat actions, like assigning tasks to my team. I would like to be able to create pre set groups to assignments, rather than assigning 29 persons individually.

I am still struggling with getting all team members to use the software and respond on this platform. Breaking the habit of using just emails is difficult. I would like to provide some simple incentives for my team to respond on zenkit, rather than responding on email and letting me enter all information into zenkit.

Overall: Easy team task assignments.

Pros: The number of display options that let you see and think about your information from multiple ways and angles. I find this stimulates critical thinking about my projects in a very effective way. The price is effective and you get a lot for the free option.

Cons: It's hard to find many cons on Zenkit. I have to spend more time on understanding setting up the Mind Map feature. The main screen doesn't seem to show a direct "Help with this feature" link (that I could see at least). Nothing a Google search doesn't fix though.

Pros: You have control of the database structure for your project tasks and lists. You also have many flexible options for displaying lists - including kanban, calendar, etc. It is very good for visual organisation - with more options than Trello

Cons: The main way I use comparable list software (like Evernote or Todoist for lists) is through browsers and email - so that I can capture info quickly and sort it later.

Addins for browsers to allow quick and easy capture of info would be helpful

Pros: The biggest Zenkit advantages over Trello (which I also use) is the possibility to relate cards between multiple boards in a way more powerful than Trello and the views system. Those two features combined make Zenkit a tool to keep track of big projects with multiple subtasks without having to create a "board" for each project.

The Trello import is a killer feature to get you up an running in no time!

Cons: It's flexibility is its most powerful feature, but, on the other hand its biggest point of failure. Let me explain: having a great amount of freedom let you in control, and it's difficult to rollback a project structure once you realize you made a planning "mistake". They try to help you with templates, but in the end it's all on your shoulder.

In my personal opinion, their user interface graphic is somewhat "cheap".

Overall: I was fascinated by its flexibility and used for almost six months, but then I realized I made some errors structuring my related boards and gone back to Trello. I was not in the mood to rebuild the structure of all my projects and I simply give up :(

Pros: I used Zenkit to manage my master thesis procedures and I imported my data from Trello into Zenkit in the middle of the project. It is really user-friendly.

Pros: The ability to view my data through multiple viewpoints... and the ability to zoom in and out. I had thought of a concept exactly like this. They beat me to it. I would have made something very similar. Why reinvent the wheel..? I'm just going to use Zenkit!

Overall: It has helped me to begin organizing all the various and many projects that I am currently working on. It enables me to create the data structure that I need tailored to the project.

Pros: What I like most is the ease of use and also the frequent updates to implement and improve the software. The team is really friendly and is really focus on understanding the users' needs and provide efficient solutions to them.

Cons: It really not is that pretty to look at, and on the free plan you cannot really customise the background as you wish.

Overall: Building efficient teams

Pros: i LOVE how easy it is to change views, from the mindmap to the kanban to the basic list or calendar. i also really like how you can add detailed to-do's for each item. helps to feel very productive

Cons: i haven't figured out how to make notifications work very well. iOS app is new and doesn't feel as fully functional as the website on desktop. there aren't many free themes, but they're all pretty good.

Hi Patrick,

Thank you so much for your kind review! We will be releasing a new version of the iOS app soonish that will have feature parity with the Web app.
Also we're working on some more themes in our spare time ;)

We switched from Trello to Zenkit because of how amazingly customizable everything is.

Pros: The custom fields, the responsiveness to feature requests or tweak suggestions, and the pricing. The ability to see your data in varying layouts is what seals the deal though.

Cons: The UI could be refined a bit more to be easier to read. I also wish there were more granular control over the notifications. But they do seem to iterate quickly, so I imagine these can and will be adressed.

Pros: It's so intuitive, there's very little learning curve, it looks great, and it WORKS. I like how projects/tasks can be linked.

Cons: I would love to see the iOS app have a little more functionality on older iOS versions. I'm running 10.3.3 and Zenkit doesn't work on it.

Overall: I have been able to completely stop using Trello and fly through projects using Zenkit. It's exactly what I need without unnecessary features.

Pros: Working in technology and software development you are always being introduced to new development tools. As a marketing team we use the tool to keep track of deliverables and due dates for big projects - new website and big events. I have used similar tools before and I like many of the features Zenkit has, such as the different views for the kanban board (Calendar or Tiles). Overall, great tool for collaboration and time management.

Cons: I would like a few more customization features, colours, tags etc.

Pros: That it offers a variety of ways to view your projects. I can view in lists then switch to kanban; then even to mindmapping. 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.

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.

Pros: It's multiple views of data that's all tied together. It's really fantastic. If you have trouble because other task management software doesn't let you have multiple views this solves that.

Pros: With 5 different views of your project, ranging from simple list and calendar, to kanban (like Trello), table (like Coda), and even mindmap (is there any other product that even has this feature?), there's a lot of power in Zenkit -- and yet it's easy to forget to explore its UI to see these various views and what they can do for you. I urge you to do that exploration, at least briefly, so that you know what's there for when you might need it in the future.

Cons: I find it a bit weird that, even in the latest version that I just saw for the first time today, the only way to save a newly added item on the kanban view is to press the Return or Enter key on your keyboard. While it's nice for quick entry of more than one item, I feel that the UI should also allow you to click somewhere outside of the newly filled-out item to save it.

Interesting option to try organising my thoughts.

Pros: The fact that your data can be visualised in a number of ways that doesn't have to be set before you add it, so you can work out afterwards what works.
