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: 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.

Great for the basics, but struggles with anything more.

Pros: Trello is great, it's simple to use, and has loads of clever UX devices that make tracking and updating tasks a joy. We use it quite often within our organisation whenever something needs "organising fast" - we're not expecting to track the progress of the entire project through Trello, but the occasional breakout.

We've most often used Trello to round up our "ideas" phase, and then moved onto a more complex project management tool after that.

The interface is simple, the free level is "about right" and there are just enough features for you to get going quickly.

Trello is great for quick organisational tasks, that need to be presented in a visual way, or they are good for information sharing (literally a pin-board of ideas works well) - and has reduced the need for post-it-notes everywhere in the office.

Cons: There comes a point in every Trello boards life when the user will go "ok, now it's time to move this all away from Trello"

Task management is .. laborious at best, with no real way of tracking time, burndowns, productivity, velocity, or any other metric that tells a project manager if the job is "getting done", it's simply not built for that and trying to implement methods that will make it work, just result in frustration.

It's also a bit lightweight on the features for the free trial version, quite a few things are locked off behind the paywall (which is fine) - but also, we feel that there isn't *enough* features behind the paywall which would incentivise us to purchase a license.

So the bottom line with Trello is it's great for short term, simple tasks and idea sharing, but anything more heavy duty that needs to be updated regularly and it will struggle.

Overall: It helps us with quick organisational tasks, and seeing ideas laid out infront of us does help with productivity. But sometimes Trello just isn't powerful enough for actual task management and tracking, and this is a chore having to move your cards into another system all the time. It should have a pro-level tier for people who want more control over their management of the boards.

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.

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.

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: I have been using this tool for over a year now and love the features it offers both free and paid. It doesn't matter who you are, everyone has a todo list. In this case the list can have multiple states defined by you e.g. not done, in progress, done.

If you are an agile company or are organising a project or event then this is the tool for you. It integrates very easily with Slack and other third party tools so you can communicate with other people around you, items can have deadlines and you can create conversations/add notes.

The ability to have multiple states makes it so much better than tools like Wunderlist (not least because other people in your team don't accidentally mark things as complete because they have more than one state)

The interface is simple and quick to pick up and works well on mobile devices.

Free access is more than adequate for any semi-professional endeavour & the best way to get started using this tool. Paid access gives you better customisation (you can run out of colours on the free version)

This is an amazing tool that I cannot recommend highly enough and you will soon recommend to all your family and friends (as well as the office).

Cons: You can run out of colours when tagging for bigger free projects but at that point you should probably be considering the professional version anyway.

Such as simple to use tool with a great free option that there is little negative to say about it

Overall: I organised a comicon using just the free version. This is one of the most productive tools I have enjoyed using and simple to use

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.

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: 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: 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.

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.

Pros: I use the free version of this software strictly for personal reasons and with a group of under 6 people. It's a great tool for creating specific-to-do lists where everything on your list can be grouped under of few categories between identified and complete. Your information is stored in the cloud and is accessible on your laptop and mobile app with little/no interruption. I love how you can attach files, URLs, pictures, pretty much anything to a "card" in your to-do list and move the item down a set of user-defined buckets depending on the stage it's in (basically a kanban board if you are familiar with Agile terminology). I use this most to keep my travel organized (buckets for trip upcoming, transportation booked, lodging booked, travel checklist complete, trip complete)

Cons: There's really only one feature that I do not like about the software and it has to do with the mobile app. The way I use Trello to have different sets of To-do list with different kanban stages for each one...it's rare that items in one of my lists are related to items in another list but when I'm moving a card from one stage (in Trello they call the stages "lists" and a group of lists exists on a "board") to another stage, I always have to choose what board I want to move the card to...the choose board screen doesn't have that great of UX, so I always have to pause and think for a second before continuing even though I would never want to move a card off of the board it's already on.

Overall: I benefit most by keeping track of where I'm traveling and what I do and do not have booked for a specific trip. I generally travel 2 times per month and try to do so on a budget, so my girlfriend and I are constantly checking prices of transportation and lodging. Trello helps me keep track of what I booked and the dates that the booked things are occurring. It's very helpful because I can look at my plans from a high level and dive into the detail as needed.

Pros: of this software what I like the most is that I can organize my activities events to elaborate a better schedule of work for my time of tasks, it is the best application that I could use to organize my activities, also allowed me to work as a team in groups of colleagues for better organization of tasks, because it also allows me to share tasks and activities with other people and also allows me to save jobs and activities already prepared for me to have been the best application that created And another function that I also like is that I can also remind others of work, jobs, events and pending activities is the best application that I could use because it helps me to organize myself much better in my work tasks and activities. This is the best Organizational billboard of work events and activities helps me a lot to organize myself

Cons: what I do not like about trello is that it is not free and it does not have folders of notifications at the time of expiring a scheduled date has no reminder only notifies when someone else labels it and should have a reminder at the time of the scheduled date of any activity of work, event, project etc.y also that it will stop and use the application you have to be connected to the internet, I do not like it when you want to install the application to an android smart phone tells you that the application is not compatible because it is not available for all smartphones android by you should have a smart phone with more technology

Comments: It is one of the best project management tools I've used. There's a little bit of a learning curve, but it isn't too steep. Lots of integrations and control over workflows make it solid for most businesses. If you're a power user, there are also a lot of secondary extensions (some of which are browser dependent) that can help you improve the system even further.

Pros: I use Trello for multiple clients and the system makes it easy to share a variety of content with different people. Controls keep things separate and are transparent enough that we can restrict what a client sees to specific boards and cards. The integrations it offers are fantastic, especially Slack. Recurring cards and timed events are simple to create, checklists ensure you can stay on top of things, and the ability to create multiple columns for a board allow you to visually understand the status of a project. (We have variations on 'Pending' 'To-Do' 'Doing' 'For Review' and 'Done' based on client preferences and project needs.

Cons: The one thing that I'm not the biggest fan of is its internal notification system. As you grow, this will be less helpful because there are too many notifications and it is difficult for team members to manage that individually. (You can completely avoid this concern with the software's email notifications as long as your team tags people in notes and project updates).

Pros: We love that the free account option is super functional. Lots of software/apps offer free accounts, but you can't do much with them until you upgrade to a paid version... not with Trello! In fact, we tested out three different project management tools that offer free accounts, and Trello was far more useful with it's "basic" offerings than the others. Sure, you get more if you upgrade, but you can still accomplish a lot with a free account. (And that gives you the opportunity to really test it out before buying.) The app helps us stay organized and up-to-date on all of our projects and, importantly, was super easy for everyone on our team to learn to use. We like that we can use Trello via our browser or on company tablets and phones, so that we can update cards anywhere, anytime. Plus, there's an element of humor with the app: we like being able to add gifs to our cards, just for fun. We have yet to have a need to contact customer service, but their product support/update emails have been helpful.

Cons: It's hard to pinpoint an issue we have with Trello that isn't a "user issue" or something that could be solved by upgrading our account. It took us a few tries to determine how to organize our boards most efficiently, and we're still working on it. However, that's a challenge with our own process, not Trello itself.

Overall: We needed a way to keep track of what had already been done on a project, what still needed to be done, and who was doing it. Trello helped us accomplish that far more effectively than making a simple spreadsheet, as it's always up-to-date and allows us to add notes (and images) to be sure everyone knows what's going on.

Pros: The best thing of Trello is how easy to use is and that you literally pick it up in no time. No learning curve. Even my mom knows how to use it! They have also created so many integrations with other popular products that it enhance the experience a lot. I recommend Trello for personal and profesional use. For individual and team use as well.

Cons: I really don't see any Cons for Trello. They might have to update the design a little bit to stay current with UX's new standards.

Overall: Trello helps me organizing my personal life and my profesional life.

I keep a Trello board with my wife to manage house chores and then I have multiple Trello boards at the office with different teams.

You can set up your work-flows and then organize tasks by priority and assign them to whomever in your team. You can invite people from outside the organization if needed to collaborate on projects and it gives transparency to everyone on what's going on with the project.

It's a very powerful productivity tool and you can sync it with other popular productivity tools like Slack to enhance the experience of both applications.

Trello also have very good mobile applications so you can access your boards on the go. These mobile applications are not only to check the boards but they have all same functionalities as you have on the web product.

The biggest benefit in my opinion is the transparency it brings to teams that work together in a single project. Everyone knows what's going on and what they need to do at any given point.

Pros: Over the years, I've used Trello in many different ways:
- In a startup, my team used it to track tasks and projects assigned to each members. Each card represented a task, and lists were used to track time horizons. Labels further allowed refinements in categories.
- As a student, I've used it to track progress on course projects
- Now, I'm using it daily to track reading notes, meeting notes, tasks, experimental results, etc.

The flexibility of the tool makes it amazingly useful, in many different scenarios.

Moreover, I find that the free option is perfectly fine, and so haven't found the need to upgrade to the premium variants.

Cons: The tool's flexibility could be a double-edged sword, as novice users will often have to figure out on their own what's the best way to use it. However, after a short adaptation period, each person should be able to find the way that "makes sense" to them.

On top of Trello, I have always used a second app to track tasks that are time sensitive. I find that Trello's handling of due dates / calendar integration is more of a second thought. In particular, it would need a "timeline view" to be truly useful in that kind of setting. That being said, it could certainly integrate with task trackers through one of the many integrations.

Trello changed our lives at the company for publicity campaign workflow.

Pros: I love having a visual konban of the status of each project as well as the transparency among team members. The new home screen is also much more conducive to a company and person who uses multiple boards and wants to see at a glance what is going on (this has always been an issue in the past with thing slipping through the cracks if we forgot to go to the board). It's also really helpful to have the recent comments on the home screen. In the past, we'd forget to click on the bell to see if there was anything that needed to get updated an we didn't want to be inundated with notification emails.

Overall it helps us stay organized, we can see it all at once, helps us prioritize and also see what's coming. The lists/stages that can be created help with all the moving parts.

Cons: The home page notifications on the updated version feel random. I can't really tell how it's prioritizing and there doesn't look like there's much room to change it. For instance, it will arbitrarily pick a board on the team, rather than allowing me to look at a few options.

I also don't like I can't dismiss comment notifications after I've read them. It would be nice to have a "read" button like there's a completed button on "Up Next."

Overall: Managing workflow transparently.

Pros: I love Trello. I use it every day for managing big projects that last over several months, to team efforts supporting conferences, to my every day tasks. I've used it for tracking workouts, vacations, presentations, all sorts of things. The more I use it the more I find ways to use it. I like the free-form of the tool. The ability to move cards and lists around with a click-and drag of the mouse is fantastic.

I like that I can schedule tasks to other members of my team and them to me. That notifications are given when a task is complete. The ability to hold a conversation behind a task/item and also add attachments is incredibly useful.

Cons: I love it, but I think that because it is so free flowing, meaning you can arrange boards and cards in as many ways as you can imagine, that some users find this "lack of structure" more complicated. They aren't sure where to start. The more board examples you see and the more you play with it, the more you understand it. Making it easier for people to find these examples might be helpful.

Overall: A more organized process for projects I already manage, and a place to capture tasks as they happen on new projects I'm working on.

The biggest benefit is because it is so fluid I can use it to track any thing I need to track.

Trello is helping me to be more organized both personally and professionally.

Pros: It is easy to use, and I can use it on all of my devices. I love being able to have team boards with my family and co-workers. The power-ups are fabulous. It is easy to automate using Zapier, so adding tasks, lists and meetings is simple. It has a lot of customization options for those who like to add some character to their boards. It is a great way to work on projects, keep lists of all kinds, and much more. Being able to review all activity on the board is great especially when working with a group (family or business). Knowing who created or moved a list or item is very helpful. Things don't get lost (like written lists). I use it for shopping lists, to-do lists, projects (individually and with a team), and team communications.

Cons: The things I like least about the software are that is not available offline (at least for the laptop) and I would like to be able to arrange my boards in a way that isn't always alphabetized (at last for the web version on my laptop.) I can work around it by adding numbers to the beginning of the board name, though.

Overall: It keeps me organized. I can organize and reorganize tasks, prioritizing them depending on what is going on. It helps me and my family with things we would like to do, or need to do. One of our boards is "Vacation" where we put ideas of what we would like to do as a family. Using Trello was key in the development of a new project between people in the US, Tanzania, and Zambia. We were able to see what needed to be done, how to work together to get the project completed. I use it for shopping lists, packing lists, to-do lists, appointments, and much more.

Pros: It was so easy to use! I personally liked the ability to set photos as the backgrounds (so minute, I know) but each of our clients are so different having an image that represented their company helped put me in the mindset as I switched between boards. It was just a little personal touch that let me customize our boards. Functionally, it could not have been simpler. I was able to see at a glance everything that needed to be accomplished that day, what was being worked on by others, and it was a great place to store files clients sent us and access them easily. It's a very simple project with simple uses.

Cons: We eventually outgrew Trello. We need more capabilities that it did not offer so we switched to Monday. com. There are still times where I miss the ease and simplicity of Trello. Honestly, a few staff members still use it because they like it better. I would say the biggest con was just its inability to be extremely customized or its lack of features, but don't get me wrong - the Power Ups do offer some integrations and features, but you will need to pay for Trello Gold to use a lot of the features.

Overall: It was simple and easy to use. You have the ability to customize a bit, and it is great for teams or personal use.

Pros: It is no doubt the best tool out there for progress tracking for small to medium size projects. Its column organization are way easy to manage and handle. You are able to create as many as you want for free. The new label filters are perfect for look up and stay organized.

Their pricing model is fair and cheap versus other similar tools. I've been using Trello for years, not just for company projects, but also for personal errands and todo lists.

I totally recommend this tool for agile projects management based on Scrum and Kanban, but for sure can be use on different type of PM frameworks

Cons: There is no analytics or any kind of metrics, there is not even a simple burndown chart. You can get this easily installing some ugly, not easy, complex addons but you will never get the results as a native built-in feature. For a tool widely use on PM projects this is a huge let down.

One other bug of my Cons is the fact that you are able to export your trello board, but there is no import...

Other than that, I think it is pretty simple to use.

Overall: - Easy to use on new projects
- Easy to ramp up existing projects
- Unlimited columns and cards
- Great visibility
- Nice search features based on filters

Pros: Trello offers an effective, functional and easy to use Kanban-styled experience to manage projects of any size. While I use it primarily for small personal independent projects, it scales well to larger environments with its robust architecture. Trello has one of the best visual interfaces of products in its class. It also keeps features and functions to just the essentials with a handful of extras to improve the experience. It also allows for the creation of private and public boards with an extensive list of flexibility to fit your needs. It has everything you need and nothing you do not.

Cons: There are only a couple of features missing from the vendor's edition of the product. But these have been addressed by 3rd party app developers. The only feature I truly feel would make this product complete is the ability to track time and provide reports and metrics. Lacking these features makes it difficult to use on projects where time tracking and invoicing is critical. But if this type of functionality is not a requirement, Trello would be an exceptional tool that scales.

Recommendations to other buyers: Trello is simple and effective, as well as powerful and highly functional. But in enterprise environments or with large scale projects, Trello may present a challenge only if compiling metrics is required. If you are looking to work in true Kanban-style and not Scrum, then Trello will definitely work. If using other Agile processes where time, cost and delivery is crucial and must be reported periodically, then Trello may not be the best fit. My recommendation is to try Trello on a small simple project first, like I did. I found out that it works well for small, short duration Kanban project where small teams of up to 5 folks can work together. I strongly believe it can be scaled to larger teams as well and I have seen it used in teams of up to 9 folks across multiple projects.

Trello makes tracking projects and tasks super simple and collaborative.

Pros: I love the ease of creating boards, and then moving things around and organizing them to best suit your needs. Visually, the use of colored labels makes it simple to glance over a board and know exactly where each tasks stands without having to rely on reading text. It is very light on text in general, but allows you to write notes as you need. I also love how it integrates with Google Drive and DropBox, making file sharing within our organization incredibly simple. Simple features like tagging people within your org is so helpful when assigning tasks across departments or keeping other departments in the loop with a particular project.

Cons: The lack of a specific structure sometimes can cause a bit of a setback as you are responsible for determining how to organize your board instead of having a standard set of lists ready to plug in. It does result at times in realizing a new board is needed for certain items, which can feel like a bit of a time waster when you're trying to simplify managing a project with your team and have to reorganize your boards and lists to better fit the project. But it's a minimal inconvenience.

Pros: Trello can be used in various ways for myriad purposes, but for this review I'm considering how it can be used as a project management tool for design or development teams.

Being able to create and customize columns on the fly makes building and refining workflows for your team a breeze. For visual-oriented creatives, it's extremely straightforward and satisfying to get instant feedback by dragging, dropping, commenting or checking off cards. Our team uses a variant of "To Do," "Doing," "Done," for design project tasks, and I can see at a glance who is working on what and at what stage.

Trello is very modular and has a number of power-ups developed both internally and by third-parties that can radically alter the layout and usability of your boards.

Cons: The free version of Trello allows for only one power-up per board, which is often sufficient if using vanilla Trello as it was designed. For any serious configuration, you'll need to pay per user per team for Trello Business Class, though not all board users have to be assigned to your team.

Overall: Straightforward, modular project management for design and development.

Pros: Trello is a brilliant organisational tool. It can be used for many purposes such as organising tasks, to brainstorming and collaborating with co-workers. It¿s a great way to organise your own personal work. With the ability to have boards for different projects, they can be organised in many different ways. There¿s many great features such as being able to add notes, photos, checklists and colour codes to cards which can make it easy to organise a project. As well as being an organisational tool, it can also be a great place to add ideas and create mood boards. Trello is very easy to pick up, with no to very little training required to use it.

Cons: It is quite basic so maybe more complex project planning would be an issue it lacks a way to add timescales to tasks.

Overall: Trello has been a great benefit to my work. I've used a free version of the software for many years. I find it a great way to organise my own work load as well as personal projects. It's a great place to pop ideas relating to a project in one place. As a designer, being able to organise myself in a visual way is very helpful. Being able to create boards of inspiration and ideas too benefits my design process.

Pros: Trello allows my company to be together when building projects and strategies for workflows and development. You can create boards to address every section of your business, where everyone can see it (as long as you added them to the board) they can comment, follow it and be updated with deadlines on that board or card and other inputs people are giving. You can create a card with a task and give it to the person who will be responsible for completing the task, you can also put a deadline on it. You can have a board for admin, marketing, development team, PR, HR, etc. Very, very easy to use, you can even have boards that are shared between your company and another company, it's amazing!

Pros: -It has an excellent system of planning and organization boards, which can be classified according to your needs or priorities.

- Inside the cards, it has a system of labels to improve the priority of attention both for work units, as for clients and services.

-Poses verification systems by time, date, hours that optimize the response time and attention within the organization, generating alarms directly to the mail system.

-Its mobile application system is extremely light, proactive and intuitive, this helps not to lose the continuity of each activity carried out during the day or week.

- You can create service meters, data files, query systems, which makes each card an excellent and capable unit of individual work.

-The unit of comments and organizational form also allows structuring work levels, assists panels according to each of the departments and maintaining the confidentiality of the information, this increases the integrity of each worker within his job.

Cons: I have no negative aspects to highlight because I am always in constant use of this tool and is a vital part of our company dedicated to customer service.

Overall: Organization, communication, alarm management, improvements in the analysis of guarantees.

It is a good simple application used for chatting between different individuals or groups.

Pros: The entire UI and customizations are pretty user friendly, this making it a suitable chatting application for corporates too. I previously used Skype for business but after using this tool, it feels like I have more power and flexibility in chatting. The slackbot technology also works fine and helps in saving reminders, alarms adding notes, etc . Apart from the default emojis provided within this tool, we can add on more custom emojis. Creating channels and groups and using shortcuts like Ctrl+K to search instantly for names is a really great user experience and great thought by Trello.

Cons: Trial versions save only partial data, old messages get lost. There should be an option for users to backup chats or at least prompt or remind the user to save a copy before the set date. Would really help a lot!

Overall: It's a simple chatting tool with add-on functionality and customizations that gives me a great user experience. The slackbot functionality really helps as a time saver and helps to keep a track of certain tasks. Moreover, creating personal groups with huge number of people or having a one to one chat is pretty simple, making it a great tool to use.

Trello is a useful tool to organize tasks and "to dos" into boards. It helps in executing a project.

Pros: I really like the simplicity of the interface where it is so easy to understand and use. The cards are so simple and yet has the needed features such as the notes, attachments, comments and other features for the specific tasks (card). I really like the drag-and-drop of cards as it like really a traditional board but much better. The checklist feature is one of its best feature of the system as well as the assigning of members in a particular board. The deadline and notification is also a great feature of tracking your tasks on a particular board.

Cons: I would just like to suggest the developers of Trello to add visual representations like Gantt charts, calendars and graphs.

Overall: The Trello software helps our institution in organizing project tasks. Trello also serves as a reminder in our tasks to be executed to a certain schedule. The checklist is very helpful not to forget or skip tasks or processes in a project. Trello provides us a space where the users can write notes, descriptions and other information related to the tasks. The system also serves as a file repository significant to the project and is easy for the users to locate and retrieve certain files attached to the boards.

Pros: The simplicity of the interface and the ease of use are the aboslute killer features of Trello. Anyone can learn how to use it and get comfortable within minutes. By keeping the interface clean Trello enables teams to focus on what really matters - managing the project at hand. The additional features that are there - such as comments, labels, due dates etc - give you enough power to manage a sophisticated project yet avoid adding unnecessary complexity.

Cons: The only thing Trello lacks is more sophisticated automations. It would be nice if the software offered ways to create more advanced flows, to trigger certain cards based on the completion of others and so on. But these are really nice-to have features, as opposed to necessary. Only the most complicated projects would need them.

Overall: Trello has been my choice of project management tool across several different teams and projects. It has enabled me to lead and manage teams working on multi-month projects and get them to completion smoothly and quickly. The best part is I haven't spent a dime on the software. The free features are everything you could possible need to manage a project.

Pros: Trello has an enormous amount of flexibility to track anything. I've used it for large scale web design projects to collaborate and track progress of the design, development and QA teams. In that case, the ability to invite specific people to each board and assign individuals to each card allows each person to easily see what's relevant to them. I've also used it just for personal things. Recording my goals and priorities for the year, idea boards, tracking and sharing important family information with my husband. The customization is excellent! The ability to easily access and make edits from the mobile app is very useful as well.

Cons: There are SO MANY features in Trello that I feel like I've barely scratched the surface. It can be a little overwhelming at times.

Overall: We've used Trello to solve collaboration issues among employees at various work sites in a variety of time zones. It's become our single point to track virtually everything, whereas before everyone had their own methodology for each individual project. I also use it personally to track home projects, basic family info, personal priorities and goals, etc.

Excellent, intuitive, easy-to-use task management for solo or team projects.

Pros: Trello makes it incredibly easy to define and assign tasks, along with contextual notes, images, checklists, due dates, and other meta. These tasks ("cards" in Trello-speak) can be assigned to user-defined lists (To-Do, In Progress, and Done, for example) and moved freely between these lists. Access to multiple Boards makes it easy to keep tasks siloed to their individual projects. All of these operations are dead easy, which makes even complex task management ultra-simple. Each card's activity history is visible to users, which eliminates confusion stemming from "Who Changed What?" questions.

Overall, Trello is far and away one of the easiest ways I've found to track projects, and the freedom given to the user to define cards and lists means the whole system is project management protocol-agnostic can be used with Scrum/Agile, Waterfall, or any number of roll-your- own task organization frameworks.

Cons: The broad freedom given to the user in creating, editing, and tagging Cards comes with a fairly big caveat Trello is only as good as you make it. Someone on your team (or you, if you work solo) will have to put in a not-insignificant amount of work on the front end establishing the taxonomy for your project/Board. There are template boards that can be copied and modified, but by and large the setup phase is the most cognitively exhausting part of using Trello, and unfortunately, there's no way around that.

The quintessential project management tool for those that want to get stuff done.

Pros: I love everything about it, but Trello's most outstanding features have to be the initial simplicity and scalability. Trello has helped our team keep visibility on open projects and lead our team to generate positive tension on getting stuff done. The concept of "cards" really helps us bulk a project into a item in the UI that we can set up with deadlines, checklists, and notes.

Also is the ability to create separate "boards" for different teams. For example, internally we have our projects on one board, and then projects we share with our creative agency are set up on another board. This allows those who need visibility to keep eyes on projects related to them, and not be swamped by things they have no concept of.

The customization and ease of use are huge too - Trello makes it very efficient through tutorials, examples, and training to get started quickly and effectively.

Cons: Checklist items should have deadlines available for them - not just the card itself. Trello is an amazing product, but this little thing seems like a huge miss that occasionally is very inconvenient.

Overall: Project management, project visibility, peace of mind, stress-relief through organization, positive project tension.

Love it! Quite a time saver.

Comments: Overall a great product and so far has been worth a little frustration in waiting for feature upgrades as it is a stable running application. Their help desk is the best, they get back to you very, very fast. I would highly recommend.

Pros: Like that it is available in a web browser as well as iPhones, and Android phones. Big plus for us its integration with QuickBooks Software. It has saved countless hours of time and errors, eliminating the need for manual data entry. Very stable running product, and great user help desk support.

Cons: We've been waiting a really long time for a couple of features to be implemented that would greatly help our processes. First is that we need a way to map to Workers Comp codes from TSheets to QuickBooks, this still has to be done manually. Secondly the email addresses TSheets sends notices to are the ones that it imports from from the Employees information in QuickBooks. In most all instances theses are people's private email addresses. We have asked for the ability to override this so that we can have the messages sent to a separate and more appropriate "work" email account.

Pros: The flexibility: Trello is a great way to organize almost anything. Each "thing" is a card which can be organized into columns by type, with optional color-coded labels for additional attributes. Cards can be assigned to your users and given due dates. You'll accumulate a lot of them, but the search and filtering are capable for finding what you're looking for.

I like that Trello doesn't enforce any particular process. For some things, you may want to organize them into columns by type; for others, each column may be a stage in a workflow and cards move along that workflow from left to right. If your workflow changes, Trello can adjust.

Trello lets you attach links, lists of tasks, images, and files to your cards, which is great. And it supports "Power-Ups" (integrations, in other words) with services like Github for software development and Salesforce for sales teams, that may make it even more of a one-stop shop for your team's workflow needs.

Cons: There's a feature called "Stickers" that, true to its name, lets you add cartoon images on top of your cards. But they obstruct the text, making cards harder to read, and mostly feel like a distraction. I haven't found a way to turn them off yet.

Overall: Trello gave my team a way to organize our work and workflow, making us more productive. At the time, we were still figuring out our workflow, so Trello's flexibility was very helpful as we adjusted.

Is an excellent resource for manage project.

Pros:
The best part is that it's free. A very natural user interface, with its list structure, can invite external members to a plaque within the organization. It allows to create closed panels with groups of members within the organization and create public panels that anyone can see. You can use it immediately after registering with Trello.
You can use trellis on any screen size. Its interface is much more different from other services. Trelllo looks like an application, not a site. Creating problems and assigning someone to those problems is simple and easy.

Cons: Can't write documents about boards, only simple description, tasks are limited to only one Project. Limited email integration and Limited number of Labels. Keyboard shortcuts and keyboard productivity usage is limited. Has helped me organize and manage processes and workflows that prior to were much more difficult to manage. of this software what I like the most is that I can organize my activities events to elaborate a better schedule of work for my time of tasks.

Pros: Simplicity and clarity that gives a lower entry barrier to start being productive with it, and a few useful more advanced feature to scale along with my project. It makes collaboration easy and improves processes and accountability, specially for small / tiny projects.

Being free is also a great plus as you can use it without taking the price into account, which separates it from other great (and most powerful) tools.

Cons: As I see it, it's focused on small teams with great interaction, so I doesn't scale well with medium projects (a few teams coordinating between them) and is crazy to use it for a big one.

Another thing that probably needs improving is it's role as an archive... we are used to find things fast (google, filesystem search, etc.) and browsing through a long trello history is the opposite of that. Even after understanding search filter, looking for something specific may take more time that what you would expect.

Overall: Cleans up the havoc of not having any software to coordinate tasks, and so it allows for more productivity and better accounting.
