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.

Pros: The ease of getting data out of your brain and into the app and then adding bits to it as you remember or more information comes to light.

Cons: The iOS app while useful doesn't have all the features of the web app, which is a shame, but not a deal breaker

Overall: It helps organise things at work and make me more efficient

Pros: It's very versatile, and lets me control my projects in calendar, to-do, etc all from one place. It helps me and my collaborators stay organized!

Cons: It could be a little faster at times, and Android and Mac native apps would be a nice-to-have in the future.

Overall: It keeps all team-members on the same page and is very flexible and powerful.

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.

Overall: 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: 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: 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: 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: it's the best balanced, feature-full yet easy to use app of it's class. usability is awesome, the level of integration is awesome.

Cons: lack of a mobile experience, this is quite ugly. Gantt charts (ok, not the typical thing... but it's a very useful representation that's quite often a MUST, a mandatory requirement, and building it from scratch separately is not cool. the "mind map"feature feels like it may use some extra work (still pretty cool, though).

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 :).

Overall: Improved my capacity planning as a freelancer.

Cons: Team members need to have an account. I woud be handy when it is possible to show someone an item from Zenkit without the need of a registration

Overall: It helps me to keep on track on different projects and it works as a reminder and a archive.

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: 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: It's a new approach that fits with what I've been looking for. The ability to see information / data in different views types with filters is very useful and fits my work type well. My work is very varied and Zenkit copes with that very 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. Have to say the support and development team are very receptive to feedback and feature requests as well as standard support

Overall: organization of information and flexibility of viewing and structuring it

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: 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.

Overall: This really helped me with my project management and GTD weekly reviews. Lets me easily see a 50,000 ft view of my world.

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 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.

Hi Christine, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We're so glad Zenkit gives you the confidece you need to lead your team! We're working on making more backgrounds available and we're about to release a global calendar view in which you'll be able to see all of your deadlines in one place :) Regarding a single searchable source - have you checked out our Knowledge Base? You can access it from the profile menu. Lastly, please feel free to contact us regarding discounted pricing options for educational institutions!

It's been very interesting, has a lot of potential to grow and is definitely in the right direction.

Pros: Customization options and different views such as kanban and mind map, help visualize upcoming tasks/components and leads to a better workflow.

Cons: Not enough focus on how it differs from Trello and other similar productivity tools, some aspects/icons not clear at the beginning, should be a little more intuitive/user-friendly.

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: It has all the funcionalities I need that are not in Trello: list, table and mind map views, side item editing, custom fields, filters. It's an evolution of Trello.

Cons: The interface is still farraginous, and not so pleasant sometimes. Android and iPhone apps are still in beta, and there is no "offline mode" on the web app.

Overall: I like the seplicity of Trello, but Zenkit has advanced funcionalities that I need a lot

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: They have really got my attention with extreme flexible Kanban-ish board (more flexible than anything else I've seen), mind map, calendar and lists, all configurable. Not so much of this is new, but it's something about their approach which make me feel like this system will provide me with the scope and view I want. I'm really excited to see their next move.

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.

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.

Overall: Much better organized with Zenkit.

Pros: Most web applications seem to be designed from the UI inward. Zenkit appears to have been designed from the inside-out. In other words, it's a database driven experience that lets users create interesting solutions using tools that are commonly independent of each other; e.g. kanban, mindmaps, spreadsheets, etc.

Cons: As a new market entrant that focused on functionality first, there are some UI design elements that need to catch up. Having said that, read the Pros: I wrote. I get 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: Love the fact that they kept the design minimalistic and extremely functional. And of course super intuitive

Cons: The thing that I miss most is a mobile app. With that I guess the experience would be complete and even more fun!

Overall: Gives me a thorough insight into my day without losing sight of the overall objective

Pros: Fact that it is a pure SaaS offering. Zapier integration. The variety of view (e.g. Kanban, Gantt).

Cons: Free offering is a bit limited (as can be expected). Would appreciate a bigger attachment limit. Also more users in this package.

Overall: Ease of use of project management across a small team which is geographically dispersed.

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.

Cons: There is currently no android app (though apparently on the way) which limits how I get my information into the app and is a frustration.

Overall: Useful data capture and visualisation. Flexibility and adaptability post-initial set up

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: 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: Helps me remember things I need to do, and helps me organize them so I can get them done.

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
