Pros: I have been using Trello for a year. My current status - if it isn't on a Trello board, it doesn't matter! Trello is a great team management tool that considerably streamlines the work within an agency. However, I use it even for personal projects - yeah, I keep track of my fitness stats on Trello.

What did I like the most about this software? First of all, the onboarding process is simple even if Trello is a complex tool. I signed up for an account, I spent a few minutes to familiarize with boards and lists, and I started to work with my team. Congrats to the designers that created such a user-friendly interface.

Second, Trello is my favorite tool because I can perfectly collaborate with my team. The manager assigns tasks in my list, my colleagues add contributions via cards and I set up the deadline and start working on the project. No more annoying emails, no more useless Skype calls and the work of our team is perfectly synced.

Third, Trello helped me to better organize my personal stuff. For instance, a blogger shared his AI Trello board. I save much time by using that board; indeed it was the effort of that person, but Trello allowed sharing his outstanding work. I keep track of my fitness progress with Trello and I developed a solid plan for a new personal project - an AI blog. Wrapping up, everything is simple to organize with Trello.

Cons: Nope. I have tried for almost 10 minutes to remember something that I didn't like about Trello and I don't have any cons.

Overall: I love Trello and any tool that saves time. Trello helped my team to collaborate effectively and I am fully satisfied with its features. I use it even for personal projects and it helped me to better organize my entire work.

More than just virtual sticky notes, a great way to manage To Dos.

Pros: We use Trello for managing our software development in a Scrum workflow. We have separate boards for backlog items, current sprint items, and completed items. We utilize the scrum for trello add-on that gives us the ability to add estimates and actual work time spent on each card. This gives us a simple list of items to manage that Trello makes very easy to move around. It is hard to explain exactly how great this makes managing the workflow, but it is all centered around how easy Trello makes it to use their software. You can litterally just click into an item and start typing and then click to drag and drop that item around. The super simple interface that eliminates the need for training on the tool is what is really great about it. Keeping the interface simple and easy to use builds instant adoption from users across the organization. To top it off, the free version of this software is very functional - eventually you will want to purchase for extra features like active directory integration, but it is great that they let you use a very functional feature rich version of the software at no cost for an indefinite amount of time.

Cons: My only complaint, and this is more of a feature request than a complaint is when you have a large number of cards it would be nice to group cards and be able to view or manage cards in a group. Sometimes we have several items that are tied to an epic, and when something changes related to that epic you need to visit and update each card. We keep track of these with careful naming of the cards that includes the epic name, but it would be nice to have a more integrated way of managing these groups of cards.

Overall: I have used Trello for many years for managing projects and To-Dos for IT scrum processes, and I honestly don't know what I would do without it - it really does help keep everything organized and running smoothly.

Trello is a great way to organize personal and/or business lists/tasks/projects.

Comments: Overall we use Trello to track our active project/job status and information and share it with our project manager who is out in the field and uses Trello on his company iPad and mobile phone. It instantly updates on all devices when we make any changes which is great since we attack a work order PDF to each project for our manager to view in the field so he knows what the job entails.

Pros: The basic version of Trello is free to use and it allows you to share your boards with 1 other user. We use a board to track jobs for our small business by making a card for each separate job. I love the simple layout and easy drag and drop option to move a card from one column to the next to track the status (we use columns such as Ready, In-progress, & Complete). The cards show very basic information to keep your Trello board (screen) streamlined and easy to view. Then when you click on a card, you get additional information such as notes, images, documents, etc. You can even type messages back and forth with whoever you share the board with and they will get an alert on their device to know they have a new message. Trello works really great on computer, tablet, and mobile. I use it regularly on each. Also, the ability to make a checklist and be able to check off items once they are complete for each project is awesome.

Cons: There isn't much to not like about it, but I do wish it had a numerical value input option that could be used to calculate a numeric value of all boards in a column (such as hours or dollar amounts). However, there are options to upgrade your Trello subscription either by paying a minimal monthly fee. Sharing Trello with other people and getting them to sign up can also earn you some free upgrades.

Pros: Most of my usage for Trello is in the context of film and writing projects, working with teams of fellow students at UCLA. Beyond that, I've also used it extensively on my own projects working with other teams to create various kinds of content, ranging from writing to the full suite of production responsibilities.

What's great about Trello is that you can use it in a variety of ways, with a fairly deep level of granularity. Using their card system, it's easy to define top level projects and then layer in a hierarchy of tasks necessary to achieve those projects. Subtasks can be assigned on an individual basis, and it's easy for team members to communicate their progress in a very simple interface.

Trello is also extremely flexible to use in part because of the breadth of its available apps. Whether you're working from Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, or even just a web browser on pretty much any OS, you can keep track of your work and progress easily and cleanly. The Android app supports widgets of various kinds, and several third party options further enhance this capability, with prices ranging from free to a few dollars.

Last but certainly not least, Trello can integrate with a number of other services, including Slack, Microsoft Teams, Adobe XD (great for artists to track their own work progress!), Skype and bluejeans for meetings, and many more. As with all such services, some integrations are free, others paid, but you have lots of flexibility

Cons: The only real issue I've found with Trello is that when signal is an issue with your mobile device, some of the apps can be a little flaky. Rather than having a local caching mechanism it appears to rely predominantly on the cloud being accessible. This makes sense to a certain extent: by doing so, they reduce the risk of sync conflicts when multiple people update the same tasks. Still, it can be frustrating if you're in a spot where you could get some work done, but your connection is sketchy.

Overall: Overall, I find Trello to be an excellent tool for team collaboration and tracking. Its ability to integrate with other services helps keep the whole team accountable, and ensures that we all have access to the information and resources we need. If you need a free or low cost way of working with teams, you can't do much better than Trello.

Pros: Trello is free to use for basic functionality.

Integration with third-party applications like Slack greatly improves the experience with Trello

You can use Trello for both organising both business and personal tasks ( On separate boards, of course. )

The free tier of Trello allows teams to collaborate on boards. It also allows boards to be set to public, a useful feature when working on a local community project or open source project where there are stakeholders who want to see progress other than the team members.

Trello sometimes upgrades your account to the premium level whenever you invite a large number of users. That's a great incentive to get people to use software that they will likely enjoy using.

It's an excellent tool when team members are in a distributed work environment, as team members can collaborate without needing to see each other.

Cons: Project web pages sometimes give an ambiguous error message when you try to open them while logged out.

I would like to automate some tasks. For example, if there is a card that moves between two panels daily at certain times of the day, I'd like to have it just notify that the due time has been reached, and for me to just approve the reset, instead of open Trello and go and manually reset the card. It's hard to describe exactly what I mean without a visual aid.

Overall: Trello helps me plan both personal and business tasks, using a single account. I use it mainly for a simple "to do", "doing", "done" project boards. Additional panels that I have used include a duty roster that stayed mostly static and was moved from user to user depending on

Because it's free I get to use it with little worry of being locked out. When I was first introduced to the concept of the kanban board I looked around for alternatives to Trello. Eventually, I returned to Trello because I found it to be the better option.

If my work paid more I'd definitely upgrade to the premium tier and enable at least a few of the features I'm currently locked out of!

One of the few tools that I would recommend to everyone

Pros: First off, let's talk about how well-built Trello is. Trello runs very smoothly, and quickly, across various platforms. There is no struggle that comes along with using Trello, which is why I recommend it to almost everyone, for any thing imaginable. Furthermore, there is hardly a learning curve. Trello creates lists and cards just as a person would in the "real world," so getting started is a breeze.

- Fast. Trello is very fast.

- Easy to use and set up.

- Very flexible. Trello alone can do a lot, but once you start incorporating the many (MANY) integrations and "power-ups" available, Trello becomes unstoppable.

- The mobile app is superb. Everything you can do on the web app, can be done in the mobile app. And again, it is very smooth and seamless betweeen the platforms.

- Customizeable. Not only can Trello lists and cards be used to your liking, but you can also customize your background image and add stickers to cards. This makes for a comfortable workspace.

- Due dates, assignments, comments, file storage, checklists, etc. The list goes on. Trello has it all.

- Trello is FREE. However, if you want to be a power user, you can upgrade to Business Class. Business Class is reasonably priced and definitely worth the upgrade.

Cons: There are few cons with Trello, but there are always cons with everything. So, without further ado:

- Linking cards between boards still lacks in simplicity. With business class (the premium Trello membership), you can create board groups. Grouping boards helps with organization, but there is still a clear disconnect between boards.

- Simple image editing tools are not available, but would be of great value. You can't even rotate an uploaded image that is sideways... that's unfortunate.

Overall: Overall, Trello has been great for organizing ideas, systemizing processes, and also for collaborating with clients even when we house a project in another PM tool.

Pros: I love how easy it is to use this software. Everything stays organized on individual cards and can be sorted into different boards. It helps our different teams and graphic designer keep track of different projects and the progress of each one.

Unless purposely deleted, everything stays put. I've been able to scroll back through different projects over 2+ years and find exactly what I'm looking for.

The search option is amazing. If I'm looking for a project but can't remember exactly what the project was titled, I can do the keyword search. So if I'm looking for a specific shirt design, I can put in keywords that I know were used for that project, and get a list of projects with that keyword. Simple, but so helpful.

Trello is so easy to use! It only took me a few minutes to get the hang of it and I felt like a pro right away. So many of my coworkers find it incredibly easy to use as well. Because of this, it helps save us time training people and taking away fro other projects they are involved in.

Cons: After approximately 2 years of use, I cannot find any negatives to this software. Sometimes it is overwhelming having multiple projects going at once and having so many notifications to sort through, but that isn't a negative of the software itself- just a reflection of how busy things can get!

Overall: Trello has really helped my company keep projects and design requests organized. We are able to connect directly with our graphic designer and collaborate with team members even when we aren't in the office. It's been simple for new users to learn so we don't have to take extra time out of our schedules to train and learn. It also helps with the communication throughout our design team and revising designs and projects as we go.

Pros: I love that there is minimal learning curve when starting to use the software. You can use Trello to plan holidays, parties, a wedding, as well as keep your business/work life organised - in other words, the software is so flexible, and can suit almost any use case which involves keeping "bits and pieces" of information together.

Very valuable addition to this software are the power-ups. These are basically connection abilities with other software that you are probably already using (eg, dropbox, google drive, slack, your CRM and customer support systems). This means that you can use Trello as the hub for many business activities, invite your whole team to a project board, and nobody will waste time looking for scraps of paper that they scribbled an idea on during a meeting.

One of my favourite uses of the software is to create a board that documents systems and processes that you follow in your business, and that way, all your standard operating procedures are in one place. This gives you scope to scale your biz, and makes training a new person much easier.

Also great for keeping track of all the ideas you have for personal projects, shopping lists, wishlists, bucket lists.

This software saves hours and keeps you organised.

Cons: I don't have any cons to write about. There are definitely days where I wish more power-ups could be added to boards, and that there wasn't a limit, but I do understand why there are limits - both for focus (you don't want to have more than a few power-ups per board anyway, otherwise things can really become overwhelming) and for software capabilities (integrating more than a few things together at a time can be risky and unstable).

Overall: I've been using Trello personally for 4 years, and in my biz for just over 2 years.

I keep track of all the tutorials I've found useful (great if I need to do something 5 months later and am not sure what I did the first time), software I'd like to try, as well as keep lists of various software options that essentially solve the same problem. So it's helped me keep track of newer software that I'd like to test out - very useful for my business.

Pros: Trello is an easy to use to-do list/project management app. After being introduced to it 3 years ago, its the one todo list app that I keep coming back to. 1) The intuitive design of Trello makes it easy to get started. Its functions just work, whether its drag and drop, moving cards across lists, or setting up boards, you can easily get started using Trello in minutes. Trello's simplicity aids in its overall feel and use. 2) Trello's cards & lists allow you to really go in depth with project planning. While other platforms may have to do lists of sorts, with Trello's you get a checklist for each card, which can be a task with sub tasks. The use of the boards and lists also helps for those that need deep project management features 3) Trello has some hidden gems such as free downloadable boards, a Calendar view for lists vs using the standard board view, Power Ups and easy integration with email, shortcuts and more. You can use Trello to manage projects in many different ways. I like to think of it as a Swiss Army knife for Project Management. 4) Its mostly free. Its hard to really beat free stuff and Trello is right up there. Most features can be used without paying so thats really great.

Cons: My only gripes with Trello are: 1) The lack of new features in a while. It feels like the only progress of Trello is coming from Power Ups. 2) I tend to whine a lot about mobile app support and while I feel the current versions are sufficient, but the lack of a dedicated Apple Watch app for example is a bummer. To Do list apps like Things have apps for every platform including Apple Watch. 3) Trello is great for smaller teams but if you have a large team collaborating on Trello can be cumbersome.

Pros: Email to card feature is a great way to quickly add cards from a phone while on the go. Custom fields are a great way to make the cards show useful information without having to go into them (requires one person on the board to be a gold member to create them but others can fill them without being gold members.)

Cons: Limited colors of backgrounds (only 9) unless you're a paid/gold member- seems like it would be trivial to give more colors for free. When a custom field is a link, you have to go into the card to click on the link. The worst feature is the search. It is clunky and lacks details. For example, when you've been using Trello for years you may end up with cards that are almost identical every year (for example "pay yearly xyz fee") and the search results don't let you see at a glance which card is for which year without clicking on each one. But when you click on a card and it's not the one you were looking for, you go back to your board and the search disappears so that you have to start the search again.

Overall: I've been using Trello personally and at work for over 5 years. We use it to keep track of communication that would otherwise be sent through email, like quote requests, orders, etc. I use it for a personal todo list, as well as a todo list my team can see. I volunteer at a non-profit where we use it to keep track of tasks assigned to different people. I keep up with the comments and status on the iPhone app throughout the day but primarily enter information on my computer. I keep finding new ways in which to use it: putting thoughts together for software I want to develop, collaborating on a project for a client with people inside and outside my company, even sharing a grocery list with my wife.

Pros: Trello is an outstanding web based project management app. Its feature rich design makes it easy to adapt to a variety of workflows and project management techniques. While Trello provides excellent documentation (which I recommend power users to read through at some point, I highly recommend that users initially go and explore on their own (yes, like the not reading the IKEA instructions exploring) to check out the features. Users will likely find many of the functions to be rather intuitive. The reason I recommend that users skip the docs at first is so that they do not form the idea that there is a "right way" to use Trello. Trello is a powerful app with an enormous amount of features; however, perhaps its greatest feature is flexibility. Users can configure a workflow that works for them to help streamline processes and complete tasks efficiently while collaborating with others and tracking progress. Trello also offers up a ton of integrations (called Power-Ups) that are available to supercharge its functionality. For example, a Google Drive Power-Up is available allowing users to take advantage of cloud storage to work with files and documents in a collaborative environment instead of relying on an endless list of email threads to move their projects along. Overall, Trello offers a powerhouse of features for all things project and task management, assignment, and tracking. It also has a worthwhile mobile app to keep you in reach of updates at all times.

Cons: Trello is an excellent app. It's primary and possibly only drawback maybe getting users to stick with it and not give up on it prematurely as it can be overwhelming when they first set out to configure their work space and workflows.

Pros: I love these browser-based applications.

Setup up time, nill (just the signing up for an account).

Installation time, nill (if you choose to run it within your browser - most people do), or if you like to be special, install the app (now available for your mac, pc and of course portable devices - just remember you will usually find less functionality within most apps).

Configuration is quick and easy with an easy to follow interface. If you have never used this before, not a problem, just feel your way around and you will be cooking in no time.

Getting started, well you just need to grasp the concept. Start with creating a list (a heading or topic) then start to add cards to the list. The beauty lays in having multiple lists and if you are a visual, like me, you can click, grab, then drag and drop your cards around the various lists. You can move your cards around, into any order you wish, just to start with. The hidden beauty lays beneath the surface, where you can add labels, checklists, due dates, assign off to others, attached files, set reminders, just to name a few things.

Think of these as sticky notes on steroids! The collaboration functionality of Trello is amazing also, allowing you to share and work with anyone from anywhere in the world, have them quickly up and running or multiple people and as one person moves a card, others will see it move in real time (almost) on their screens.

Want more? There are also add on's that create gannt charts +

Cons: hard to say, this is a fantastic and polished platform. I cant think of anything negative to be honest.

Overall: My tasks lists have never been so easy to identify and manage, especially visually. My projects are all there as boards and my timelines are right up there in gannt form. I dont work well with traditional task lists, as they all look the same, but I have created different backrounds for various projects, my tasks and move cards as necessary. Closest thing to having pen and paper, well even better now!

Pros: I like the way it incorporates with other things via Powerups. I use Trello Butler all the time (both the bot and the powerup) to automate just about everything I do on Trello (love those dashcards especially!). I integrate it with Zapier to parse leads on my Trello board and keep track of what happens on Google Sheets. I use a wide variety of custom fields (and I use them with Butler to do some real magic)

I also really like how I can attach an image and it shows on the card, some of my boards have images on every card.

Cons: Its a small thing, but I have some very personal boards that I use for my private life and some business boards for my business - I can't really show people my business boards without risking them seeing my personal boards on the menu. It'd be nice to be able to hide them away in a conspicuous folder so I can comfortably show Trello on the projector without exposing my private life.

Overall: I use multiple Trello boards to organise various parts of my business but one of the best things is that I have leads for my clients come in to Trello boards via email, direct from my landing page. I can have different labels automatically attached to a certain lead depending on the landing page so I know what landing page the lead was from. I can trigger my client's notification on his phone and he instantly knows he has a lead, so he can call them within minutes (or seconds even) of them filling out the form. This is a better system for lead gen than anything I have seen - and it doubles as a CRM! I probably shouldn't be telling you this actually... exposing secret gems here!

As well as labels I can attach various custom stickers so I can see information about that card at a glance.

Trello is maybe the backbone of my business, keeping me organised. On some boards I have all the tasks I need to do all mapped out and keeping me on top of things, on other boards I have data organised in such a way that I can see things at a glance that I would never pick up by looking at a spreadsheet of the same data.

I organise both my private life and my business on Trello, and I use the Trello app on my phone just about as much as I check my email on my phone.

Comments: Team collaboration on boards is easy. It is an extremely intuitive application. If you expect a setting or program instruction to be found at a specific place, the chance is good that it is there. The third party integrations through Trello's Powerups functionality, makes it possible to develop a customized Trello solution that is very powerful. But, that means that a user, or a company, would need to create an account with each of the third party solutions. This could become costly and difficult to manage because each solution has its own subscription rules. I am very happy to use Trello. I use it everyday as my primary productivity management tool and as organisational repository for all the tasks associated with my different work projects. I have different boards for each project and many lists and cards for each boards. Cards are easily moved between lists once they are completed or when their content changes and they consequently relate better to a different list.

Pros: The visual appeal of Trello is the major factor that makes me prefer if above other productivity management solutions. The interface is easy to use and understand. It is easy to change card into its own list, or to transfer it to another board. Navigation is simple. Multiple users can access and work on a board if they have the permission. A long list of other software products can be easily integrated with Trello with Powerups - (1). This makes it easy to access files/information contained in other products without leaving Trello. (2). It is consequently also easy to navigate to the other products through Trello. It allows attachments of many different types to the cards. Time/date stamp comments can be made to cards. Activity on boards and cards are also time/date stamped with information regarding the changes made. Team collaboration on boards is easy. It is a very intuitive application. If you expect a setting or program instruction to be found at a specific place, the chance is good that it is there. It is easy to set-up a new team with access rights to certain boards. The GUI and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) of Trello, is very well developed and thought out. Checklists can be added a card. It is easy to set-up a new team with access rights to certain boards.

Cons: Text formatting is not enabled with the common "drag-select-change" or keyboard shortcuts that users are used too from other familiar applications. Instead characters need to be entered among the text to change a word to bold/italics... or to make text into headers, lists, and any other format options. The text format rules that Trello uses is called: Markdown formatting syntax. One has to remember the correct syntax if one wishes to edit the format of text. Workflow automation or task assignment automation could strengthen Trello - but it does enable integration with other applications that might fill this requirement. A calendar view is not part of the basic Trello solution - once again a integration with a third party application is required.

Pros: I love Trello boards! Ever since I was introduced by my manager to the concept of Kanban boards and Trello, I have loved this app for use in the office (required for my team) as well as for my personal productivity (i.e., my private life).

We started using Trello when it was just a simple Web app (used only via the web browser), now I love it even more since they already created an installable version for my devices both Mac (office work) and Windows (personal pc) as well as an Android version (mobile phone). Now I can access my boards anywhere I go.

Also, the recent addition of the Home page sort of Wall (like facebook) made it easier to have a rundown of the cards/boards that were recently updated or nearing its due date. This is very useful when you already have multiple (or tons of) boards.

Notifications are fantastic! I get reminded via email when a card is due, or whenever a team member makes an update.

One more thing I love about this is that you can share boards in public/private/teams. This makes collaboration with external stakeholders possible (or simply just wanting to share a board to the entire internet population).

Cons: The Free version does not allow you to extract all your boards into a spreadsheet format (e.g., excel). Anyway, I was able to try it out (before subscribing) via a Powerup I got for free. I'm not sure about the logic of having to "Archive" a card first before being able to "Delete" it. Maybe there is a reason, but sometimes I would just like to delete a card straight away.

Overall: Trello will highly improve your productivity for both your office work and personal life. It did to me. You can organize action items (or just about everything any list can do) in a fun and colorful platform. Try it by starting with the basic Trello (free) which is fantastic in itself and might be even more than enough for basic needs.

Pros: What I like most about this software is the way in which we can organize our meetings, pending issues, follow-ups, meetings and, above all, place the status that is basically required to make progress. The options and colors where each person responsible for activity is identified helps you to close the points faster. Trello works very well in my case because I tend to think very visually, so images and color labels work better with my brain than just a text. Although I am a big fan of Evernote to manage a multitude of information, lately I have found myself returning to individual lists written on paper. Trello is a breakthrough of that, it is one of those few applications that achieves a balance between a simple and elegant interface while including very powerful and flexible features. No compliments, however. Let me show you how I and other Trello users are using it as a productivity method.

Cons: What I do not like are the rows one side of the other, where we put the information, it seems very close to one another and for me personally I do not like the appearance, very neutral. The issue is that it is forcing a program to use it for something that it is not. You can also use the notebook to write a novel, but it is not the best tool for it. To organize trips there are tropocientas webs and apps that give a thousand kicks to trello, with suggestions of places, automatic geolocalization, organization by calendar, etc etc etc..To write novels the same, there are webs and applications focused on it, that you hierarchize the information much better, write down ideas, alternative plots, different paths of a story, etc ... come on, what a novel requires, with trello you will organize a micro story as much.

Trello is focused on organizing projects in which many people have their roles, and show the states of those projects.

Everything else, I seem to want to give it a use that is not yours.

Overall: Trello is a project management tool that makes collaboration simple and, I would say, even fun. The reality is that it serves almost everything, whether you are organizing projects at work, household chores, trips or anything else. Individual cards can contain task lists, images, attachments, delivery dates, color labels and comments from other people who share the board with you. You can have as many boards as you want, use one for "Homework", for example, and another for "World domination plans".

It is likely that you have already realized the potential. The Trello cards are like small post-its on a cork board but in digital format, so you can look at them, share them or add a reminder. You can even create cards via mail.

Pros: * Ease of use: Creating tasks, editing and moving them is VERY easy and quick.

* The shortcuts are intelligently chosen, and help working faster.

* Thanks to all the functionalities within each card, Trello adapts very well to very different working styles: I can choose to create a checklist (so I simulate a tasks with subtasks), add attachments, labels, comments, etc.

* Very nice experience when working with a team: syncs seamlessly and fast, I can see things as they happen in the actions feed and react if I want to, we can have whole conversations within a card, and have them for reference...

* Something I specially love is the fact that I can copy an image (something I do a lot, capturing images with screenshot tools and the like) and paste it directly into a card. Trello understands that and displays the image as a comment.

Cons: * I don't like the board management screens. I find hard sometimes to find the boards I want.

* I guess there is a reason for not allowing me to delete cards, rather than archiving them, but I still feel that I would like to be able to delete them.

Overall: I juggle between three different tools to organize myself:

1. MyLifeOrganized (https://www.mylifeorganized.net): A pure task manager where I can list tasks and subtasks, prioritise, add dates, and mark them as completed.

2. Trello: A visual board where I can see how my tasks flow, and add details to each tasks (text, attachments, images, comments).

3. OneNote (https://products.office.com/en-us/onenote/digital-note-taking-app): A note-taking app, where I can write longer texts, add any attachment, include video or audio directly from the app into my notes and reorganize them easily.

Whenever I need to write longer specifications, or archive something for future reference, OneNote is my tool of choice. If I am purely working on my own with standalone or unrelated tasks, MLO is the easiest tool for me, quicker and with lots of intelligent reminders. When I need to focus on a project - a lot of related tasks - and/or share these tasks with someone else - i.e. working within a team - Trello shines brightly for me.

Pros: Trello is a task management tool for those who want to keep things intact but don't want to get into tangled formal proceedings of Jira. Unlike aforementioned, Trello offers universal platform ready to use from the get-go.

You don't need to waste a moment to understand how to use Trello - that is probably its greatest asset. The design scheme is intuitive and there are barely ever any misunderstandings of the way how features work.

As a task management tool it is extremely streamlined and easy to operate. It is really easy to track progress and document various undergoings of a particular task. It is also very useful when it comes to drafting multiple variants of short texts - such as UI-related descriptions or Call-to-actions messages.

Also, Trello is extremely helpful in gathering research information in one place and tracking its processing by transferring through multiple boards.

On the other hand, you can use Trello as an elaborate link dump outlet during web surfing sessions. As a writer, i often find a lot of stuff that doesn't fit any category but begs to be saved for later - Trello is perfect for that kind of stuff.

It is very stimulating from a creative point of view. Random gatherings of random links often form a basis of a collage text with many unexpected developments.

Cons: If there is one thing that is majorly lacking in Trello - it might be a search feature. The way it is right now is serviceable but it is extremely clumsy and barely usable, especially if you have an ambiguous search request. If you want to find something - you better remember where you put it because search might not be that helpful.

Overall: Trello is a good task management tool that offers a little bit more. Overall,

Pros: A great heritage we got from our Japanese friends... Kanban boards! It's magic for us in the office! We tried it manually at first via post-it notes and a huge flat board. It became messy and rather hard to be kept up-to-date. Come Trello! Now we manage all our boards online.

We mainly use this for project management of action items. We can create several Trello Boards, add all the team members, assign specific tasks by using the Trello Cards, and each one we can set the deadline, notes, comments, move items easily, checklists.

Of recent, Trello updated the 'Home' screen to include a sort of "wall" (just like Facebook wall). This makes it easy to see which boards and cards have been modified, due/overdue, etc.

Trello is beautiful. You can customize your boards to have stunning background wallpapers to suit your project.

You can also share your boards to people outside your organization. You can make your boards, private (personal or to teams), or even public in the Internet (accessible via a public link and searchable via Google).

Cons: There is no way to extract your data (Boards, Cards, and data in each) into a spreadsheet format.

I have yet to see a sort-of dashboard type of screen wherein there are graphs or gauges that can graphically represent the overall status of boards (e.g., due/overdue done/not done...)

Overall: Using Kanban is a must-try practice for productivity. Trello is a must-try platform for this Kanban. It helps to have a beautiful interface that is easy to use and manage. Visual boards and cards has helped us to be reminded of the tasks at hand (the notifications help a lot, of course). Trello has helped us to sort out our action items, priorities, and direction for Projects.

Pros: Feel that it is a tool with the highest added value in user experience that has been used for the management of activities.

I can list all the features that I like about the tool:

** Can customize look & feel without losing the order of the tool

** Earn more features by inviting friends to use trello

** Integrate other applications: drive, mailchimp, calendar, zendesk, calendar, draw.io diagrams, hangouts,

** The moviel application is great, from any device I feel comfortable and with the order of activities

** Add time estimates

** Add everyone involved in the tool on the same board

** Online support

** Guided tours when you do not find an item

** Interaction with the client to improve the tool or add new features

** In my organization we use Zendesk and it has been an excellent experience to guide the team in the management of incidents

** The details in the user experience and user interface makes it easier to use. It is not necessary to have a manual

** Receive information from the blog about the progress and changes of the application.

**Change language

The new trello version allows you to see notifications from the dashboard

Cons: I currently manage software projects and I really use the tool to guide the team in the activities to be developed for each project.

I would add to trello to improve project management:

** Pass the checklist to a gantt

** Allow date to start and end of an activity

** Display a gantt chart with all the activities added. As well as,. all the dates of the activities are displayed on the calendar

** In the same Gantt diagram have labels on the activity where it is detailed: members, labels, colors of the labels, title of the activity

** To be able to configure the frequency with which we want to receive the notification that an activity is about to end.

** That team members can add the percentage of progress on each activity. How is it in the checklist line? Once the percentage is added, the gantt is updated

** Allow adopting project methodologies for agile, static or other

** Consult what type of activities you want to perform on the board, and with that provide specific elements on this subject. The user can also access other elements but the main one will be the selected theme

I recommend this application to colleagues and friends

Pros: Trello is a great T-card system that is easy to configure to your needs for any project. You can create custom cards, checklists, add links, attachments, due dates, and assign tasks to others, all for free. Some smaller projects may require just one or two cards, and some large projects require an entire new board with multiple team members. Either way, Trello is a tool that can handle it all.

I've started using it for a team of interns in order to have an overview of what they are all working on. It gives me the ability to assign them projects and due dates, give them attachments and information that they may need, and they can flag a project for me to review, even giving me a notification when it is ready. This also teaches them to keep their work organized and maintain clear communication with their peers as well as their supervision.

I've use it for personal use as well, for everything from car maintenance to grad school assignments to grocery lists. Truly a wonderful platform for the everyday task to the multi-faceted program management. You can even change the theme to one of hundreds of custom colors or photos to keep your board from having that dull "professional" look that many other programs use.

Cons: Trello's basic value for the money is great, because it's free! There is, however, a paid upgraded version which allows some additional functionality, which honestly I have not used very much at all. The free version includes all of the functionality that is needed for the majority of projects, so the paid version may not be a necessary use of funds for those who think they need the upgraded version to have better access.

Overall: This program has been instrumental to my personal and professional organization. It is simple to set up and use, and offers functionality that is needed in any project, large or small. Since it is a free program, the value for the money is outstanding and honestly could be something they could charge for.

Pros: Very easy to use. Simple design that is quick to learn and fun to use. The drag and drop functionality means you can move your tasks and columns around instantly which makes it stress free to use as nothing can really go wrong.

There are quite a few feature packed into the free version, such as checklists, attachments, customisable themes etc. The standard features you'd expect of due dates, alerts, sub tasks, user assignment, colour coding are all here too.

The best thing about this is how quickly you can load the site, quickly throw a task into a pile of "to-do" notes and then move on. It makes it so much easier to organise and track the smaller ideas or tasks alongside the big projects.

You can also get the App which is free and allows you to organise on the move.

Cons: Whilst the simplicity of the design is a plus, the actual aesthetics are a bit outdated. I feel this could benefit from a more modern theme, possibly flat tiles, although this doesn't hinder the functionality.

The graphics to display completion levels of projects could be improved for checklists. Currently just a 3/5 e.g system. Some in-depth statistics are lacking. It would be great to see productivity month on month and other data about the tasks on the board such as overall progress or an ability to add values.

Overall: Organises my life currently. The amount of times an idea would come into my head or a task I needed to do would get lost was frustrating, but now I just pile everything into Trello.

It allows me to focus on one task without having to be thinking about keeping track of everything else. The efficiency of actually doing tasks when using Trello to break them down is also noticeably up, both in terms of production and motivation.

Overall, both personally and professionally this has made my life more efficient and increased my motivation to complete personal goals.

Pros: This is a strong visual tool to get organized. Trello is among many project management tools you can try for free. I have several websites and tried Trello to track work I needed to complete for each site. I also created boards to track client work I was doing.

Definitely take a few minutes to walk through Trello and try out the features it has to offer.

The Pro is the basic principle is to think from left to right. Then get used to the idea of Boards, Lists and Cards.

I setup a board specific to one of my websites. Within that board I created lists. The simplest thing to do is to setup lists like "To Do", "In Progress", "Done" and "On Hold". I created another list called "Article Ideas".

Within each list you create cards. I move an article idea from To Do -> In Progress -> Done.

Easy!

It's quick to create labels to assign a card (think categories). You can assign a due date and assign a card (i.e., task) to someone on your team. I really like being able to create subtasks within each card. That's helped me immensely to see progress on one task that has multiple components.

Check out some videos and their inspiration link (https://trello.com/inspiration). I'm really impressed with the Real Estate Listing that's on the inspiration page.

Cons: My project management career had me deep in MS Project and document sharing was through Sharepoint. If you're looking for info on how it works in a larger team setting def Google, check out Quora, reddit, etc. Some of the concerns I saw were around security, so look into how Trello manages security/logins/permissions to access boards.

You can only view info with a kanban view. If you want a Gantt view you need to install an extension, but that's free.

My project management days had me deep in MS Project and Sharepoint for collaboration. If I were looking at Trello as a larger team management tool I might flip to Airtable.

Overall: Trello is very visual and it was a great intro to going with a kanban approach to project management. It's easy to pick up and like any new productivity product you need to step back and think about the best way to implement it. I found multiple ways of using Trello, from tracking tasks specific to web projects to using it as a digital tool organizer. I decided to create a list of what i.e., social media tool I was using per project. i.e., For one website I used HootSuite, for another website I used CoScheduler. For another website I used Planoly. Having an easy visual away to track these kinds of tools (mail lists) and configuration info was handy.

Pros: Excellent free tool for the control of projects, tasks among others, organizational and personal. What I like the most is its simple organization that allows creating boards, in which you can create different lists, and within these lists, cards. These cards change the list as they are made or pass through different lists: Tasks, in process and finished. The cards support everything: any type of documentation, images, videos, lists, comments, etc., so they also serve as an instrument of communication in working groups, about a certain topic. Tags help you organize tasks taking into account the location and / or the type of activity. For example: home, work, phone call, errands ... You can manage from an organizational project and invite employees to simple tasks, such as tasks to perform on a normal day in your home. and you can have your notifications directly in your email or cell phone, since it has an application that you can use in Android and IOS. The application allows you to organize your tasks in separate projects or folders. You can also customize the appearance of the application, for example, by choosing a different color theme. The application allows you to mark the status of your tasks; as: "active", "postponed", "completed", etc. and the best The best of all, is that you do not have to erase anything. When you want to clean up your tasks, you just have to archive them and they disappear. At any time you can see all the archived items, and make searches. Also ap

Cons: It does not allow to create repetitive work lists to be able to do "cycles" of tasks (For example: X tasks every Monday, or the repetitive tasks of each beginning of the month).

Overall: Excellent tool that allows me to take control of my personal tasks, the university and independent projects in a simple way, for example has allowed me, together with my students, to take control of each phase of the development of the systems to evaluate in class, step step by step and in that way to take better control and that each group does not consent to the status of each of their tasks to be performed. It has also facilitated the development of projects with colleagues who are physically at a distance so that in this way we can keep track of the tasks assigned to each member and the state in which they are located....

Pros: My company has been using Trello as our sole tool to manage day-to-day tasks and projects. We are a small team of 5, and Trello helps us communicate amongst one another across hundreds of different projects and thousands of tasks. We often invite our clients to join their own board and collaborate with us in that way, instead of working with email threads that are impossible to keep track of. We use the free version of the software, and have tons of information on many boards - there appears to be no limit, which is an absolutely amazing feature to offer for free. Most software that is this great, is limited in some way, shape or form. I have yet to find a limiting factor that prevents us from using Trello to it's full capabilities in our office. I love that you can keep all information relevant to a specific task on one card - attachments, due dates, comments - everything you need to remind yourself what needs to be done and where you are with that particular task. I also love that you can change the backgrounds of each board.

Cons: I honestly cannot think of something I do not like about the software at this point in time. Even the free version has very little that can be criticised. I would love the ability to easily switch between accounts, I have a personal account as well as one for work - currently one needs to log out and log back (sometimes log out of Google and back in), which could probably be streamlined a bit more.

Overall: Easy day-to-day task and project management, which simplifies and reduces my emails and streamlines my work and communication process.

Pros: Trello's strength lies in the ability to attach all relevant files to a project in one easy to find location. I love that I can easily drag and drop photos onto the card. I like the process that my company uses of moving cards from left to right through different lists, because it allows me to see how quickly my coworkers are finishing a given task. I also appreciate the newly updated notifications tab because it allows you to see the edit history of a card without opening it completely. I also like that you can mark some notifications as read and leave others unread. I would love to see them take this even further by allowing users to write a comment on the card from the notifications tab, without having to open the card. The search function is a lifesaver. With hundreds of cards on our collaborative board, it can be very difficult to find one that is weeks or months old. I use the search function to find cards all day long!

Cons: Sometimes it can feel bit clunky. For instance, I don't like how clicking anywhere on the card closes the description field and gives you the message of "Unsaved edits have been made". It should just automatically save when you click off of the text box. This happens to me regularly and is a continual source of frustration and waste of time. Moving cards using drag and drop often fails and leaves cards where they started. Because of this glitch, I usually use the dropdown list on the card to move it instead. But it would be nice if the drag and drop was more reliable.

Overall: Trello allows our team to keep all the relevant files for each project in one place. As a writer, I can attach reference photos for what I would like the designer to make. I can also post links to similar content. It also acts as a workflow space that is easy to follow because of its visual nature. We move cards from left to right as the project is moving through each stage of development. This makes it easy to check in on any given project.

Trello has positively impacted my life, both professionally and personally! It's an incredible tool!

Pros: It helps with organizing, simplifying and streamlining projects like few other software tools can! There are so many dimensions of utility built into Trello, that it is difficult to even cover all of them when describing it to others. To track tasks, projects, etc. in practical and well structured ways is easy with this software, which allows for collaborating, checklisting, deadline approachment, and many more methods of keeping a project or task list under complete control. The ability to modify is vast, with cards, lists and labels. And the usage of "power-ups" (add-ons, essentially) allow you to sync Trello to other apps that can add even more depth to your level of control and management, which equates to less time spent hacking away over common project pitfalls like scope-creep, redundancy, fruitless circular communications, etc. and more time being productive! And it is well managed by its developers, also. Ongoing enhancements make it an ever evolving (in a good way) power tool for businesses and individuals really wanting to optimize their productive workflow. This is my favorite software application of all times, so far.

Cons: There are only some very small aspects of Trello I might classify as "cons" but not anything about it that is road-blocking or should be eliminated. For instance, it would be nice (my team and I have discovered) to have a card count feature in the top/heading of each list (column) of cards on the board. The absence of such isn't actually a negative trait, but the addition of such would certainly make the software even more useful than it presently is. That's as close to a "con" as I can think of.

Pros: I like its versatility, design, and tools. Trello can to be used for to control simple tasks, simple or complex project. At the beginning August 2017 I can used Trello for management a remote project of health and care, with a team of 18 person ubicate in Brazil, Portugal and Venezuela. We were able to be working SCRUM with Trello, we create boards for each sprint with the participation of all human resource, who achieved to integrate very well with the way of working of SCRUM through Trello.

You can win more benefits free when you invite more people to used Trello, for example I got my account to go Trello Gold for that and I have more benefits that those with a simple account. I can place personalized photos to my boards, I can habilited 3 power-ups and I can used personalized emoticons, among other things.

The best thing is Trello has a mobile aplication that allows you to work online wherever you are, along with a web aplication that together make to Trello unique. All the change can be seen online and that is very import when you are working with a team.

In addition Trello send notifications of all change that your team makes allowing you more control and monitoring of the activities planned in the project.

Cons: Like every system Trello it has some points of improvement.

For example:

(a) When I want send a new attachment to a specific task in Trello since mobile application, I can´t selection a specific task or column in a board, always it believe me is for create a new task.

(b) Although Trello has Power-Ups for create a Gantt, this Power-Ups does not work well so it can´t used to planer and controller a project. In addition, this Power-Ups is very heavy and takes time to load. Trello needs a better system to create an MS Project-style timeline.

(c) Trello doesn't allow printing of cards and their contents.

Pros: First of all, the service is provided free of charge! (Of course there's the Business Class and Enterprise versions but the free is already fully-functional for our use case.)

We use this primarily as a Kanban board for managing and monitoring our projects in the office. Helps us to keep track of our To-do's, Doing, and Done items (including others like "Someday" and "Inbox" items.)

Notifications also work and help a lot (e.g., we don't get to check the boards, and we do get email notifications).

The native app (I'm using the Mac version) is flawless! It works in conjunction with the Android app for a more mobile use.

Cons: We tried using it for issue tracking, but we didn't continue since we could not really use the data for analytics (e.g., we could not export to a spreadsheet for making more sense of the data/numbers.) There are no Gantt charts, time-tracking tools (which are available to some of its competitors).

Overall: Perfect for office Kanban! Very useful to set-up a project dashboard where we get to keep track of our to-dos, doing, and done items. The free version is fully functional and to some (e.g., small groups) it works just fine even without upgrading to the Business/Entreprise versions.

Easy to share with internal (e.g., colleagues) and external (e.g., vendors) users for easy project tracking and coordination.

Simple and lightweight. The native app works great (I'm using the Mac OS version). Using Trello via a Web Browser also works fast and responsive.

Notifications are great as reminders. Deadlines can easily be set per item. Comments are stored for easy reference of an item's history. Adding checklists even expands the use of each board item.

Trello offers many important PM & collaboration benefits.

Pros: Lists can be fully customized, and collaboration takes place in real time. Trello's notification system instantly informs you whenever something important happens. You'll get notifications inside the app, and via email, browser, and mobile push. Notifications stay in sync across all your devices.

If you have a lot of boards and people in Trello, you can use teams to keep everyone connected. Teams are groups of people and boards, like your company, family, or roommates. You can create as many teams as you wish with your free account. You can create as many boards, cards, and teams as you wish and add as many people as needed. You can choose to make any number of teams or boards public or private. Trello works fast in real-time. When somebody moves a card, it instantly moves on your board, no matter what device you use. You can keep your tab open all day and never have to refresh.

Cons: Can't write documents or wiki about boards, only simple description. Cards/tasks are limited to only one Board/Project. Limited email integration. Limited number of Labels. Difficult to work with multiple cards or tasks in the UI, like for moving, copy/paste and such. Keyboard shortcuts and keyboard productivity usage is limited.

Overall: As a project manager and member of other companies, Trello helped me to manage all my works through all the companies and also my university life, giving me ways to discuss projects and tasks in a transparent way and in real-time. It keeps everybody informed through task assignments, activity log, and email notifications. Members can easily be added to a board where they are free to vote on ideas contained in the cards.

Pros: Simple old concept is redesigned to a new and modern concept. Simplicity, design, user-friendly concept,....

When I use it for my personal projects then is very usefull.

When we use it, as international team, then is important part of our job.

Simple to use, easy to learn, everything is fantastic.

There is a limits of 10 Mb for a free version. This can be solved with links to other clouds so it+s not really a problem.

Cons: Sometimes it's necessary to use external programs for some simple stuff. I would like to see more cooperation/conectivity between on-line platforms that I use.

Also, add-ons can solve some of this problems but it's not same thing.

Overall: Last year I had a opportunity to start a small project in development and production of new carbon based products. Fantastic stuff, international cooperation and my role was to organize R&D.

After project started restrictions camed: low/no budget for anything outside "pure" R&D and coordination/reporting activities between R&D team - other members (national and international). Ok, we can live with that but it have to be solved in some way.

So I started to look for some team/project based solution, and after just one googling TRELLO came to the top. As a first, I was sceptic to some on-line solution (if they are not in-company solution) but after half hour working on mock project I understood all the benefits of this, new concept to me, boards.

And they are excellent. Easy to create, customize, define personal protocols, define team/sharing, history, hyperlinks,... fantastic.

Concept is simple, "old school", can be done (as it was before) with papers/documents but as on-line is unbeatable. First thing to do is to start a board. In it You can insert lists, and in lists there are cards.

Boards is group of lists, and list is group of cards. Usually lists are steps in some process, and cards are all activities that are planed. As You finish some step You just drag needed card from one to other list/step.

List can be edited and defined in several ways: members, labels, checklist (my favorite) or adding attachments (photos or links). History (called activities) is visible on te bottom so is simple to see when and who did changes in the lists.

Interesting options is to "subscribe" on the list so You get informed when new activities on the list happens.

Another thing to mention are add-ons that are not so needed but change /personalize Your work with TRELLO (for example: to include gant diagrams in lists).

Implementation was simple and easy and it helped as a lot regarding our communication and cooperation. It is one of best on-line solutions that I use averyday.

Recommendations to other buyers: I'm using TRELLO for my personal and for my profesionall needs/projects. And thats it.

Trello is more than a project management application. It resembles your digital sprint board.

Pros: Trello is a solid visual collaboration board that packs everything you need to manage your team's tasks. What I like best about is it is very easy for others to pick up and it comes with no surprise fees for what you need. The Trello cards are very easy for managers and collaborators to add comments, add attachments and move from the backlog to complete. Anyone that joins our team can get a hang of the software within just a couple uses.

One of my other favorite uses is the integration with other platforms like Slack, Google Drive, and GitHub. The tools sync very well with each other and make it possible to build upon the simple the use cases depending on your product stack. Our team found it easy to integrate Trello with tools we were already using and it really maximized our capabilities to work keep each other accountable without messing up our flow.

Cons: If you have used other sprint boards before that have more functionality, you may find that Trello is almost too simplified. The board does what we need, but certain functionalities like putting the date start and end dates so you know when you started it is not possible. It's a minor detail, but it would be a "nice-to-have."

Trello also requires full team buy-in and reinforcement of use or else the boards can get very messy and unorganized. Usually when we find Trello the least helpful is when we do not help ourselves by maintaining it.

Overall: Trello promises to be free for users forever, and they uphold that promise. They do have an upgraded version of the software, but we have got away with sticking to their free plan. This yields the highest benefit to cost ratio out of many project management/visualization tools.

The tool also resembles the physical sprint board that you have in your office, making it very handy for teaching and onboarding new team members. We work with many contractors and even if they haven't used Trello before, they get the hang of it very quickly.

The most powerful planning tool without any doubt.

Pros: With Trello I can organize anything, from home tasks to family events, projects and work activities, through the lists I can control the status of tasks and also with the cards I can generate more specific activities for each one of my collaborators so they can be taken independently, parallel or in different periods of time if one depends on the completion of another, that way I can generate a workflow for each project in each of my boards, inside the cards I can add more specific information of the activities such as the due date and details of the task itself, also me and my work team can add comments and attach files, on the other hand Trello allows me to move the cards one list to another across the board facilitating the control of the workflow, through the applications integration Trello allows me to work with the applications that my work team uses the most, and if that was not enough, it keeps synchronized in each of my devices allowing me to always be aware of each of the advances of my team whether on my computer, tablet or smartphone. For this and more Trello is the most powerful planning tool without any doubt.

Cons: None that I can mention so far, simply the best planning tool

Overall: With Trello I can make better use of time by controlling the achievement of each task and activity, thus optimizing the execution times of my work team along with the flow of information on each activity, without any doubt an indispensable tool for the planning and organization of activities and projects.

Pros: Trello is super simple and you could even say fun to use, but it's got some very powerful features/integrations if you dig a little deeper. Although designed for team projects, there's almost no aspect of my life that I can't manage better in some way with a Trello board. And every time I show a non-user one of my Trello boards, or get someone to sign up to collaborate, I find that before too long they are enthusiastically recommending it other people.

Additionally, I really like the way the company presents itself - they have a friendly, casual vibe and the tone of their documentation and web site is always fun but respectful.

I have a Trello Gold account which is very reasonably priced. and I get a free month every time someone signs up that I have invited. As I'm not using Trello with my clients this has turned out great - I get quite a few free months, but I would recommend the system even if I didn't get any reward for doing so. I like it that much.

Cons: There are a couple of features that I would really like to see - the ability to define cards as dependent on other cards, for example - but really, I'm very happy with the software the way it is.

Overall: I use this product to organize projects with my clients, to organize trips with my friends, to plan my personal and life projects, to share recipes with my partner... and I'm sure there's other uses I have not yet discovered. The benefits include the ability to easily organize information in a visual and intuitive way, and allow different people to collaborate.

Trello has resulted in a positive experience overall, no issues, no complaints, no missing features

Pros: Trello is SUPER easy to use, intuitive, and works every time I log in. I've never encountered a bug, never had to contact their support. You'll see I put 5 stars for Customer Support without any experience with them, because any piece of software that enables me to use it without having to seek help is 5 all around in my book. Boards, buckets, and cards are easy to create, edit, and move. Truly wonderful to use for project management, as it allows you to create teams and track progress. The company I work for has used Trello for YEARS, without issue, gap in usage, or concern that it wasn't the best option. We've added other project management software into the mix, but always went back to a dedicated Trello operating procedure. I also love it that you can create public facing boards for customer use, without compromising the private boards for internal collaboration. Inviting staff to projects is easy, email notifications are super convenient. Nothing but positive things to say.

Cons: If Trello could do laundry and clean my house, I would marry it. But, since I live in the real world, its collaborative application benefits will have to do :)

Overall: Easy collaboration platform, intuitive, elegant user interface, no bugs, no glitches, public and private boards, easy to implement, edit, and complete projects. Progress tracker is great. Makes it much less difficult to keep a growing company on the same page with projects. we also use it for bug reporting, feature request management, watchlists, and more.

Pros: You will find yourself using Trello as soon as you open the first board. It's a tool that just gives you a board to share with your team, and it does it flawlessly. There is no friction in the user experience, intuitive and easy to discover.

The product does not impose any specific board scheme or semantics. It gives you the freedom to use it your own way. I used it in many different scenarios, ranging from a shared todo list for a travel, to a kanban style product roadmap. Inviting coworkers on a board it's an easy win.

There are a ready integrations with external software and services, like github, slack, Google Calendar and many, many more.

Most important features are available for free and you can have as many private boards as you want. Just try it.

I really appreciated the nice example boards library that Trello hosts for documenting the features and for inspiring you.

Cons: I think Trello is honest in what it does and what it does not address. If you need an enterprise level tool, Trello is not the tool you're looking for. Yet it does reserve your consideration for personal or small team productivity.

I really could not remember any specific defect in the user experience but I would appreciate more interface tweaking, like font and colors.

Overall: Istant sharing a free-form board with my team boosted productivity. It helped me collecting contributions from many more teammates because of it's intuitive and satisfying user experience.

Pros: Pros

The things I liked the most about Trello is that it is super easy to use. I have a small game development team and I am able to use Trello as my Kanban methodology platform each member of the team can access the Kanban board (Trello) and interact with the task cards. The Administrator can set permissions for the board to keep just anyone from moving and accessing cards. It is probably the easiest way to run a Kanban Board I have ever seen. Additionally, I use Trello for a number of personal to-do list type boards because it is so easy to track in progress or multi-part tasks.

Cons: Cons

It's not really a Con but with a new change in policy effective March 19th, 2019, Free teams can now only have up to 10 boards. However, this is not really an issue because if you need more than 10 boards you can just upgrade to a business level account with a fee associated.

Overall: I find Trello to be an invaluable tool for both personal and small team projects. It is so easy to use and the Trello dashboard keeps all of your different boards organized and easy to maintain. I have had only great experiences using the platform and I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to get organized or has a small team they want to collaborate with in an easy to use, accessible anywhere platform. It has allowed me to organize and keep track of my teams game development project with ease using the Kanban project management methodology we wanted to use for agile development. If you're a small game development team it is by far the best tool you could use to track you game projects.

I'm a stark raving Trello fan. I use it to manage many aspects of both my work and personal life.

Pros: Trello has been a life changer for me, both professionally and personally. There seems to be no limit to what you can do with it. It's hard to describe exactly what Trello does; rather it is better to see what it enables you to do. On a high level, it's a Kanban project management and team collaboration app. But after you add in all the third-party integrations and plugins available, the options are endless. In effect, you can almost use it as a way to build mini-apps for solutioning different areas of your business or personal needs. This is where there are lots of sites that show you use cases of other users.

Cons: My only complaint with Trello is that it is limited to either a Kanban or calendar layout. This is where I think Trello needs to learn from other platforms like Zenkit that have built in the ability to switch views from Kanban to others like spreadsheets, mind maps, to do lists, and calendars on the fly. While Zenkit is not as polished as Trello yet, it is quickly coming up as a viable alternative. Hopefully with increased competition from other apps like Zenkit, Wrike and the like, it will push Trello to do more than just add support for more integrations.

Overall: Trello has helped me organize and manage processes and workflows that prior to were much more difficult to manage. From organizing my novel writing notes and character bios, to managing our web content calendar and online product catalog, Trello is flexible and versatile enough to help me get a handle on just about any project.

Pros: Just how many tasks, ideas and lists it can be used for and how well it integrates into our daily business activities.

Cons: That I can't just buy it and have to rent it forever!! And the pricing of the business plans, which, frankly, don't give me too much more than Gold does.

Overall: Trello is our go-to for everything project related! We use Trello for tracking all client (or agency) projects. Any idea or task gets emailed to each client's list from wherever the idea strikes (meetings, train, cafe), is then expanded with links & images, a checklist, team members, due dates are added. I also like that we can message each other about each distinct task (as opposed to having to email - everything is kept right on the task). You can track where things are up to, move tasks to different lists like to-do this week or on hold and apply coloured labels so you can see, at a glance on the whole board, which project is at what stage. And when the project is done, you can clear the decks by archiving it - but it's still available if you want to go back to look for any reason.

We've also got a training board for newbies (thanks Trello blog for that idea) which is the repository for our team's collective knowledge. That felt a little strange when we first set it up, but now everyone's in the habit of using it and the search tool is awesome, it's truly a great addition to our agency on-boarding process and learning library.

Having Trello available on my phone, ipad, online & desktop versions means it's available everywhere - exactly as I need for it to be to keep an eye on projects, manage capacity and be able to discuss where something's up to at a moments notice with a client.

I also keep a list of personal goals I'm working on too. Keeps my business 'why' fresh!

Pros: For me, this is by far the best tool for managing and organizing multilevel projects at work, as well as my private "things to do" such as for example shopping list. Trello is characterized primarily by unparalleled simplicity - it all comes down to moving cards, depending on the progress at work. In the application, we create our boards, and boards are divided into lists with cards. Great thing is that, we can share boards with co-workers, write comments or suggestions so that working on the project in a team is much more easier. It is simple, clear and working with the application is a great pleasure. Another thing great in Trello is that you can access your boards and projects not only from your computer, but also from your tablet or smartphone. I like this option very much, because I often use this application on my phone.

Cons: Trello's simplicity is its greatest advantage but also the biggest disadvantage. In fact, some can say, that Trello is just a shared task list, offering several additional functions. In fact, there are no more extensive solutions, such as the ability to edit documents, or interactive plugins that enable joint creation of presentations or graphic designs.

The possibility of providing a public board that can be used to collect various opinions from outside the circle of employees / colleagues is unfortunately limited only to Trello users. Sadly, there is no use of other social media.

Overall: Simplicity, simplicity and once again simplicity. Starting work with Trello is a matter of several seconds. The registration process is instant, and the website itself has been designed so smooth, that navigation is fast and intuitive.

I encourage you to use Trello - especially if you like to have order in projects and tasks, or have a problem with everyday matters.

Pros: Our business has Trello as a core part of how we do business. All of our engineers and Project Managers use it to manage our projects for clients.

On a personal level, I use it to run my life.

Cons: Recently I got an email saying they'll lower the teams down to having only 10 boards per team on the free plan. That adds an extra inconvenience in that we need to add new teams to get more boards added in. A smarter way of getting people to buy their product is making more "power ups" (Trello apps) for their product. Having stuff that absolutely must get integrated and costs money will drive up sales. Perhaps give people a plan that allows companies to select X number of powerups per plan level and get people hooked on them. However, taking away functionality and adding tedium just isn't a good move.

The Trello app as a MASSIVE issue with it. When I add a checklist, then I start typing out a lengthy item to add to the list, I sometimes need to look something up and resume writing the Trello item. The moment I switch away from Trello and back again, all of my text is missing! I can literally spend 5 minutes thinking something out and if I bump the button to switch apps, then I lose everything I wrote, and I don't get it back by tapping the entry box like on the web version.

Overall: When I went around condensing everything from notes all over the place into one product, I chose to use Trello.

Trello SERIOUSLY needs to fix the bug in their app, but aside from that, I love using their product.

Pros: We were introduced to the Kanban boards to help improve our productivity in the office. The digital tool we used to implement this Kanban way of monitoring things is Trello.

We just love how we are able to easily manage the cards and boards via drag-and-drop. The cards have everything we need, like a calendar, reminder, notes, assigning to a specific person, timestamps, etc.).

Trello also now has a "Wall" soft of new feature. This works like facebook wall... where it is easier to track what has happened recently, what is due, etc. This is very useful when you are a member of several Trello boards.

There is an option to share a board publicly (private, or teams). This makes it possible to share boards with people outside your organization, or even those whose identity you don't need to manage.

Trello may be accessed via a web browser, a native application (Windows, MacOS),or even via mobile (Android, iOS).

Cons: There is no way to export your trello cards / boards into a spreadsheet (not that I know of... or may be not for the free version).

Relationships and Hierarchies between tasks and projects are not supported (this is for the more advanced users).

Overall: Trello and Kanban in general has drastically improved our office (and even personal) productivity. Task management is a breeze using visual cards/boards that is easy to drag-and-drop, manage, and be reminded of (via alarms, assignments, notes, and timestamps).

Pros: I like everything about this software. I've introduced well over a hundred people to it (clients, friends, family, the company I work with) and think it's just the best. What I like *most* is that it's so visual and intuitive for me. Also, as a visual and creative person, I also REALLY like that I can swap out the background with photos of my choosing (and I freaking love that you guys partnered with Unsplash to allow Trello users to pick from their rad photos). I used to be an Asana user but the visual element of the click-and-drag cards, as well as the visual photo backgrounds, is what made me switch and never look back.

Cons: I was stoked about the card syncing functionality when I learned about it but it's not that great, to be honest. I think that feature has so much potential but it needs definite work to make it a smoother UX. I find it to be buggy and I don't like how it creates drop downs of items with randomly assigned alphanumeric names.

Overall: Trello is my absolute favorite project management platform. I use it to organize everything in my life - from work projects to meal planning and everything in between. I've planned baby showers and holiday parties with it, used it to keep track of home repairs and auto maintenance, used it to keep track of my short and long term goal planning, and, after introducing it to my company of 70+ employees, we now use it as our sole company-wide project management system. I joke that my whole life is organized using Trello, and it's very true!

Pros: I've used Trello at a few different organizations, and also use it for some personal projects, and was so happy when my current org purchased it for our L&D team to use. We're structure in a way that we have different 'pods' that operate in roles for doing training needs analysis, discovery, definition, design, development, and delivery. While we all have slightly different roles on each project, Trello allows us to track, prioritize, and provide updates on where each project is at. Would recommend any team with simple or complex projects, at minimum, give the free version or a trial of a paid version a try. Brainstorm together on how you want the structure and flow to work though.

Cons: I wish that I could say there are things that I dislike or find to be lacking about the software. Honestly, it's one of the more intuitive and easy to use project management options out there. Integration with other apps and software titles also make it a great investment.

Overall: Trello allows us to have project transparency across the different roles within our L&D group, which saves time and keeps us all aligned on timelines and deliverables. The integration with Harvest has been great in my current role as we work on reporting to set standards on how long a business ask will take from start to finish. The notes, attachments feature, and Harvest integration is also assisting our team in identifying where different business groups require more of our time throughout project requests.

Pros: My team runs in an agile project management style, and Trello has done a great job of helping my team keep track of our items and making sure we're making progress in a way that is visually clear and beautiful. Being able to use lists, cards, and checklists to keep track of projects, tasks, and sub-tasks respectively is easy and helps keeps things organized.

Cons: Outside of agile project management, it can be hard to find a good use for the boards. I've tried using them to sort different projects or ideas, but ultimately I've found that other tools work better for that. The integrations are also only available with the paid tier if you want to use more than one integration, which is unfortunate. There isn't a lot of value for me in the paid tier outside of those integrations, so it feels limiting in the way we can use the boards.

Overall: Overall, Trello is very easy to use and does provide a great deal of flexibility. The web and app experiences are both very good, and since everything auto-syncs when a change is made, it's very easy to keep everyone up to date on new developments and projects. Adding multiple members to a board is easy and makes it a great way to collaborate with others. I've also used it as a solo tool for my own projects and have found it helpful there as well. As I mentioned, it can be harder to use effectively when the project management system is something other than agile, but I do think that with some creativity, others could find an effective way to use it as well. Overall, I've been very happy using it.

Comments: I have been using Trello for a few years now. At first, it was my project management tool for all of my website clients. I had no need to track resources or time, so Trello was an amazing tool. As my business expanded, I needed a means of tracking time and other features, so I moved on to a more professional platform. Despite this, Trello is now my "go to" tool for personal projects and managing my personal time. It is still easy, simple and super effective, and I would not do without it.

Pros: Trello is simplicity at its best. With all the necessary features one expects from a typical Kanban board, plus extra features to make use of Trello much more effective. Trello allows you to create private and shared teams, providing access to specific team members. For each team, Trello allows you to create as many boards as needed, and provide extensive customization for each board with lists. Customization features are great, too: background colors, stickers, power-ups (a vast collection of interactive features with other apps). And all this is available on their standard account.

Cons: As a Kanban board for all sorts of projects, whether personal or professional, the only feature I find lacking is resource allocation and effective time tracking right inside of Trello, without out any 3rd party integration, which do exist and can provide solutions not native to Trello. Would be great to have these as native features, but for what its worth, Trello is an amazing tool in itself.

The perfect to-do list!

Comments: I really liked using Trello. I am very much a visual person, and the ability to have to-do, doing, and done lists made me feel very accomplished once I was able to move one to the other. I liked having tasks on my calendar so I knew what was coming up and it wasn't a surprise. Some of my co-workers who also used the program have added projects and I was able to read all of the notes so that I knew exactly what was needed. However, I would like to see password-protected boards available in the future.

Pros: I really loved Trello's digital board option. The ability to have a to-do, doing, and done list is very handy, especially if you are more of a visual person. It is also handy because many users can comment on or do tasks. This allows for less time wasted. The calendar is a good plus, as you can plan out your day, week, or month, and decide which tasks might need to be moved to a later date or moved up. The ability to add images is important, as you can attach a paint sample, for example. This way things get done the right way without having to go back and forth asking for details.

Cons: Depending on the amount of people adding projects, things could get a little cluttered. This is exacerbated by adding many boards that are managed by many people. I would also like to see password-protected boards so that important and private information could be stored and shared with people who know the password. This would prevent non-public information from being shared with people who should not have access to it. The ability to duplicate tasks would also be a good add-on, rather than having to type the task in over and over again.

Pros: The tool is intuitive, flexible, and requires minimal management. This allows it to fill several roles within a small team while remaining unobtrusive to other established workflows. The use of workflow columns and filters, in particular, make it easy to visualize and grasp a large quantity of varied data.

The availability of separate boards also allows individuals to track all of their projects together, whether they are independent tasks, parts of larger projects with the team, as well as projects across different teams and units. Again, this can all be handled in a manner where the act of tracking never gets in the way of the actual work.

Cons: Trello's only true downfall comes from its greatest strength minimal upfront time investment to get started, and minimal maintenance time. Tracking too large of projects or managing more complex workflows in Trello creates usability issues at best, and at worst, creates unmanageable situations.

In these cases Trello simply doesn't offer the scaling and customization options necessary to handle the complexities. It does offer integration support for other more robust systems, however, so that it may still be used for smaller projects without keeping separate tracking systems.

Overall: Our team tried several systems to track our individual tasks and group projects, and of the systems used, Trello was the least disruptive to implement. It allowed for at-a-glance collaboration and served as a great tool for personal organization.

I am likely to continue using the software for my individual tracking purposes, in addition to our initial group use.

Pros: Trello is my favorite tool It is very smooth. Visually, it can't be beat. Ease of use, it is number one. It has collaboration built right in. My favoirte thing about Trello is project management. You can create a boade, within it create lists, and then just let your mind do whatever you it does by creating cards and then later sorting them into lists. We typically start with 4 lists. To-do, doing, done, and Brainstorm. If you are looking for some sort of mind mapping softare, this pretty much does the same thing. Create a board (which would be the hub of the mind map) and then create a list called brainstorm and just mind dump whatever comes to mind. Make a new card for anything. Once done, sort those cards into lists, add dates, add todos, do whatever you want and its much easier to use than the alternatives I have seen.

I also use trello for Getting Things Done methodology. They even wrote a setup guide you can buy from their site on best practices.

Cons: The native windows app did not impress me for some reason. I can't really put my finger on it. it works good for notifications though. Install it on your phone and tablet, they work great! The website is the best platform. Just use that.

Overall: It is my everything tool. Task management, project management, team collaboration, you name it. I have it up sort of like a visual dashboard where I can visually see my life.

Overall, Gets the Job Done (Could Be a Little Better, Though)

Pros: Trello is user-friendly and straightforward. While you can go for a paid membership, I find the free version is more than enough to meet my needs (although I wouldn't be opposed to paying for something more robust in the future -- I like Trello that much).

Trello helps me keep my whole team organized. Everyone has their own board, so they can keep track of their assignments, due dates, etc.

I give each assignment its own "card," where all the details go for that assignment.

Everything is drag and drop! Super simple to use.

In a nutshell, Trello helps us stay organized, efficient, and productive.

Also, customer support is great.

Cons: I really only have one complaint. Trello has a "power up" (like an extra feature you can enable) that allows you to have cards repeat themselves. We use these for assignments that are needed every week, like social media posts for clients.

The problem is the card doesn't actually repeat. It duplicates.

Ultimately, this gets very messy. The card copies itself, but the due date stays the same. So you end up with a bunch of duplicate cards with the same due date, and you have to correct them all manually. It's not efficient and doesn't solve the problem at hand, at all.

Plus, removing the feature is a pain. You have to disable the feature on the original card, or it won't work. This isn't something clearly explained.

It took me weeks and a lot of back and forth with customer service to figure it out.

But that's literally the only thing I've come across that I don't like.

Overall: I can recommend Trello for businesses big and small, across any industry. My business uses it, as do some of my clients. It's reliable, organized, and easy to use.
