Considered Both Products
Trello
Chose Trello
Without a doubt, Trello is the easy one of the bunch to use. It is beautiful to look at and easy to interact with. It does for sure lack some features that other software has like Wrike, Basecamp, and Slack. But for simple smooth task management, it is the go-to.
Chose Trello
I found Wrike difficult to use at first. Also, the entry barrier was higher since I needed to put an email to receive a trial. I didn't like pricing etc. I just wanted to register and start using the application as fast as I could.

Chose Trello
UI and ease of use are very successful for Trello. Team members like to use this tool to compare the other. It supports cross-platform and is actually not complicated, you get familiar with the features very quickly. Tagging the task or changing the background of the projects, …
Chose Trello
Trello is a great product that allows for more detailed project breakdowns.
Wrike
Chose Wrike
Trello is too simplistic for the scope of the projects we manage, whereas Jira and Confluence are too confusing with too steep a learning curve. Wrike, by comparison, is as simple or as complex as you make of it and intuitive enough that no real instruction is needed on how to …
Chose Wrike
Wrike is an inbetweener for me, with Trello being a basic entry level platform, but it is free.. which is great to use. Where Jira is a complex platform to use, well laid out for bigger company basses... but quite costly. I do wish that Wrike had more of a sprint task basis …
Chose Wrike
We started by using Trello and eventually outgrew it. We needed something that allowed us to managing things by client/project/task AND by individual user. The to do list feature was a huge selling point for us.
Chose Wrike
So Wrike is a great blend of the functionality of Basecamp and Trello. Basecamp is a good time/date stamp on messaging internally and externally. Trello is a slick way to drag and drop tasks in a workflow and to check them off when they are complete. Both of the competitors …
Chose Wrike
Well, Wrike is our team standard. However, the only problem are some contributors (guests) cannot collaborate. Smartsheet might be another choice for us, since Wrike is more expensive and requires all collaborators to get accounts.

The only thing why I personally, would …
Chose Wrike
It wasn't my choice but I do like Wrike WAY better than Trello.
Chose Wrike
Wrike provides more extensive project planning and collaboration features compared to Trello. Wrike is a better choice for organizations with complex projects, extensive task dependencies, and resource allocation needs.
Chose Wrike
The Wrike is a base tool of our company, so we use internally, to organize our demands and jobs. We use Trello with our clients, because they don't use Wrike, it's difficult to implement some kind of tool in other companies, with restrict access, so they use it on their browse.
Chose Wrike
Considering my team's needs, Wrike is a comprehensive project management solution offering features like task management, time tracking, and collaboration tools alongside advanced capabilities such as Gantt charts and resource management. From my point of view, Notion and Trello
Chose Wrike
Wrike is better suited for big organizations, and it feels more organized and serious than Trello. To me, Trello devolves into a bunch of Kanban boards and it's hard to get a bird's eye view of everything going on. Wrike is much better at organizing things and letting you …
Chose Wrike
Wrike, as an organizational tool, provides way more functionalities and better registration of data, for example, with artificial intelligence tools that help you complete or look for specific tasks. When I started in the company, we used Trello as our organization tool, and …
Chose Wrike
We had only evaluated Monday and Asana on a surface level before we chose Wrike, so never went to try a trial, but from what we saw in terms of functionality and customizability they both didn't seem to match up with our varied needs as a very diverse company dealing with …
Chose Wrike
Wrike offers a lot more features and functionalities compared to the tools we've used previously. The approval process, UI, and integrations available make it a no-brainer. It makes collaboration between remote teams extremely convenient. The experience has been great and after …
Chose Wrike
Wrike is a great tool across all stages of work. What sets it apart from other platforms is how well it caters to the needs of all types of teams and departments. Being a broader system, it doesn't specialize in any specific area (e.g., finance or design), making it a universal …
Chose Wrike
As I said before, the comparison of between versions of file uploaded is really a good feature of Wrike that I havent' experience yet with other Task Management systems that I have used. Aside from that, it's easier for me to collaborations between task laid out in Wrike rather …
Chose Wrike
It is easier to search and find the correct project and you can create versions of files and images. You can see the changes you requested from version 1 to version N. The view to the project is a folder with task inside.
Chose Wrike
Wrike's layout is way easier to understand especially when onboarding. The dashboard layout is a huge strength for Wrike. I see exactly what I need for my day/week/month with a glance. Most other lack the time tracking integration that is easy to help understand what projects …
Chose Wrike
I particularly liked the collaborative aspect.
Chose Wrike
ABOVE AND BEYOND the competitors I have used. I actually didn’t even work within my other PM systems because they were so clunky and not user friendly. I would just physically write down what I needed to do or work off of emails. This is the first PM system I felt like actually …
Chose Wrike
Wrike has a much better dashboard and user interface, and allows multiple departments and tiers to communicate together in a cohesive way and work much more seamlessly and efficiently. The filters, blueprints, notifications, and automations are all customizable and save energy …

It is well suited to my job requirements as I bring employees in, and I help offboard them as well. This tool helps me when I need to make sure all items are completed by a certain time frame, so I would say it holds us accountable. Someone who doesn't manage a group of people may not find this as useful when dealing with others but could use it for their own accountability when needing to track their accomplishments.

My organization used Google Sheets to work with subbies, but we've since switched to Wrike. It is user friendly, has formulas and customizable fields. Wrike has been a lifesaver because instead of sharing Google Sheets with external customers and typically they messing up - deleting formulas, users can simply fill out a request form without logging into Wrike . All details are displayed in a table view, making management much easier.

Pros
Atlassian
  • It helps make various workspaces. Each workspace can be used for a different set of task management and can be shared with the people involved.
  • Creating task lists. We can create various task lists, the list title could be the status of the task, for example, In progress, approval, completed, etc. You can slide your task cards from one list title to another.
  • Trello cards have a huge set of features like adding the heading and description of the task, you can also attach certain associated links and documents to the cards as well.

Wrike
  • Wrike has been consistent in emailing any updates or changes to each person involved in each task.
  • Wrike has a simple to navigate website, with quick access to each task.
  • Wrike keeps all data files located at the top of the task for quick reference, which makes it easier for each team member to find.
  • Wrike adds date tags as well as any edited or deleted notes where we are able to cross-reference any major changes that may have been made.
Read full review
Cons
Atlassian
  • Allow tables as content for comment or description in Cards
  • Assign priority to certain cards (easy for sorting)
  • Create an open invite link for others to join/view the Trello board, without edit rights (so people don't need to install/use Trello if they want a quick glance on what's going on)

Wrike
  • The email notifications that are automatically sent from Wrike when something is done are easy for users to miss or ignore.
  • Reporting can be limited. You have to create workarounds for collecting/storing the name of the person submitting the form in instances where they do not have their own Wrike license.
  • A more user-friendly interface, especially for those less familiar with project management software, would enhance overall accessibility.

I am very likely to renew Trello, because it doesn't cost anything to do so. I am also very likely to use Trello's upgraded features in the future because a lot of my team's data is stored on there and they have already gotten used to the platform. Trello is very easy for new team members to pick up, making the onboarding and usability very streamlined.

Wrike
I wish that Wrike had more drag and drop functionality that would be connected to assignee and also I wish that the finish date of a task would update to the date where you checked completed. It does not do that. Also finishing a task doesn't move the start date of the next task it "protects your time in that way", but our management team wants us to quickly see what we have down the pipeline rather than having to scroll down the list of upcoming tasks.

Usability

Overall, Trello is a great tool to use. It's very user-friendly, very powerful and we've set it up to work well for our team. I've recommended it to others who need something free or very cheap and it's worked well for them too. If you're wanting something with more muscle, then I'd suggest looking at either monday.com or Airtable.

Wrike, overall, is pretty easy to setup and use. I still find challenges in changing milestone dates but our programs / date changes are different than industry standard so that is partly the issue. We love the Excel look along with the dashboards! There are also built in analytics that really assist in seeing where the projects are!

Over two years of (almost) daily usage without outages. Don't remember any errors. I give it 9 only because some Wrike plugins (for online document edit) are based on NPAPI architecture. These types of plugins are being phased out in new browsers, and NPAPI plugins are disabled by default in recent versions of Chrome so you have to do some browser adjustments when you switch browsers or move to another computer.

Wrike tasks loads fine, but I hate clicking files and wait for a bit of time since it is powerpoint or word, Wrike assumes I want to open those on Wrike. My suggestion is to link it to office 365 so we do not need Wrike based decoder for PPTX and DOCX

I haven't had much need to contact their support because the product is easy to use and pretty bug-free. I did reach out to them about swimlanes and I was able to find the information I needed very quickly and it was thorough and accurate information about current functionality. I love that they use their own product. That's always a good sign.

Support is very quickly and they want to solve problems actively. When I need additional info I can use community forum, when I've an issue I can use support form to get help. The support is of excellent quality from the first level, to grow when you talk to the engineers it becomes even more important

I love the Wrike training options. Wrike Discover has tons of courses, learning plans, certifications, etc. This is an area where Wrike definitely shines! I wish these resources were more in your face for new people, because it seems like a lot of coworkers didn't know all of this training was available to them.

For our small business, getting a few of us started well on Trello was the key, I think. As long as a couple of us were really comfortable with the interface, we could lead others and help them with any questions. From now on, anyone who works with us just naturally uses Trello for information sharing - it's just part of what we do.

There are a lot of bells and whistles in Wrike, and not all of it is easy or intuitive to understand once it's plopped in your lap. It's easier when there are a few choice people who understand Wrike as a platform and articulate it in such a way where it makes it easy to pass it along to others in the group

Trello is easy for a non-technical person to use. Other management systems, like MS Project, frighten away less computer-savvy users. I've found this to be instrumental in getting volunteers to agree to step in and get fully involved with projects--particularly those that might span the entire year or involve many different pieces to completion.

I have not used other products except Microsoft Teams channels with file sharing and standard sharing from Adobe, text and email messaging, and Zoom/gotomeeting sharing. This is the first product that I have used that had the functionality and platform where the sharing is simplistic. It is better than standard sharing through email or other simple forms because everything stays together.

The sky is the limit for what can be done in Wrike. We started with 1 use case and within 5 months we migrated several key business practices over to Wrike because they were easier to manage. Use cases so far: process improvement, management review, corrective actions, maintenance requests, month-end financial closing, and document management. As we grow, it's easy to imagine putting even more into Wrike where it becomes a cornerstone for how we do business

  • Trello keeps me organized, focused, and on track. I could filter the Trello board to only see my issues and understand what I needed to work on and when.
  • Trello helped our team implement an agile structure. It's a very simple kanban method of viewing all of your team's tasks and statuses. You can completely customize the columns to your team's specific workflow and create tags relevant to your work.
  • Trello helps reduce unnecessary communications between teams. When I want to request translations, I simply create a card on the localization Trello board -- no need to directly message anyone on the team, and I can watch the status of the card change from "in progress" to "in review" to "translated," all without having to directly ask for updates.

  • Adding versions of a document streamlines our editing process, preventing us from reviewing outdated versions of a document. This feature saves time, especially when working with external contributors who may not know Wrike well.
  • Blueprints save time because we do not have to manually enter all the details when scheduling a recurring project.
