https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/mG/LY/3U4TA8KT099D.PNGWithout a doubt the best to-do manager we have ever seenWe are using Trello mainly as a task list for things that we are not able (or not permitted) to open an tracker or incident on JIRA. Tasks like "Internal system xyz needs to be updated to the latest version of PHP". The fact that we can fully integrate it with JIRA SD and Confluence is one of the most wonderful things in Trello: you don't need to copy-paste everything. Place it in one platform and voila: you can simply import/export it to/from Trello.,Task management: you can assign tasks to teams or to someone in particular You can, with some workaround, create a full Kanban system,It is a bit difficult to use in the first tries. A lot of colors, a lot of boards, a lot of projects... But you can and will get used to it easily.,10,As it is free to use, we do not have an actual RoI.,,Cisco SSL VPN (AnyConnect), VMware Horizon (formerly VMware View), Citrix EssentialsA great tool to keep non-profit events and projects on time and successful!We use Trello to manage ongoing projects--specifically those that have many balls in the air at the same time and set time schedules that occur throughout the year. Using Trello has allowed us to 'let go' of the worry of missing a key part of the project or a key completion date. These projects have the high likelihood of being handed off for management by others, so it is key to have everything down in black and white to be sure everything continues to run smoothly, even with a change in the staff/management of the project.,Keeps our To-Do list organized and visible Shares project status with all interested parties Allows others to contribute to the tracking of the project,Some features are only available in the subscription version. Trello is great enough to use at home/with family projects, as well, but paying for some of the fun stuff is a hard sell.,9,As a non-profit user, the investment is minimal with Trello, so ROI will of course be very positive.,Microsoft Project,10,Weebly, Mailchimp,Yes,9Trello: Easy for Small TeamsSome people in our organization use Trello, and most users are happy to use it as their primary method to plan projects and smaller tasks. For my small Digital Media department (2 persons) we use it to store all tasks and ongoing projects. This way we keep track of anything, and can let our manager know what's ongoing.,Easy color categorization of the "Cards" (which can represent anything from projects to tasks) Ease of use overall - you can divide work into columns and move it from column to column depending on status You can create multiple boards, which are spaces to store tasks (for different work contexts, or even private boards) You can easily share boards with another person You can easily assign tasks (Cards) to persons You can store information in cards, like files and short format text,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),10,Helped us work more efficiently Helped us to not forget about small outstanding tasks Helped us complete projects sooner,Microsoft Teams, CloudApp, Skype, Microsoft Yammer, Google Drive, WordPressThe Best Free Project Management Tool Out ThereTrello is currently being used for project management for customers going through our onboarding and training process. We track details about each customers' background, our interactions with them throughout the process, and use Trello's different channels to move cards Kanban-style through our onboarding flow. It's also free for our team, which has been very helpful.,Powerful free version Multiple users and can save lots of data (appears to be unlimited storage) Very user-friendly UI,Reporting capabilities within Trello are lacking Trello doesn't offer a ton of customization or have various widgets quite as intuitive as monday.com There have been times where users have issues with Trello loading for them,8,It's been an essential tool for our onboarding team. We wouldn't be able to operate without it. It's been a very affordable investment for our team as well since we still use the free version. We have had a negative return in the fact that there aren't any reporting tools within the app. We have to spend time tracking certain elements manually.,8,6,monday.com, Asana, Airtable and Basecamp,monday.com, Todoist, EvernoteTrello is an agile project management system for teams with varying needsMy entire organization utilizes Trello at a number of levels. First, we use it to manage business development by creating a board with business leads, bid information, and proposals. Then, when a project goes into production we create a separate board or list with information about how the project will be managed through completion. Each employee also uses Trello to manage their individual day-by-day schedule by creating boards with Monday-Friday lists that help prioritize, schedule, and execute individual tasks.,Trello is a useful tool for breaking down project tasks in a user interface that is visually easy to understand and drag and drop friendly, while also allowing a level of detail within individual cards that allow you to keep up with specific tasks and notes based on how things are organized. Checklists are one of my favorite features on Trello cards. They allow for you to add details and to-do lists for yourself or your team, and it's easy to divide and conquer or convert to cards if you need to expand. I love how you can drag and drop a particular card to another list. If you need to move tasks, cards, notes, (or whatever you are using a card for) to another list, it's incredibly simple. I love how open and editable Trello is. You can totally adapt it based on the project or task size - it's useful for small or large teams.,In some ways, the thing that is great about Trello is also what is so difficult - it's an open slate. Unless you have a clear path about how to systemize your processes, it can be a bit difficult to get started. Communication - The commenting is a bit limited and on larger projects or boards, it's easy to lose track of conversations. It would be nice if there were a way to unify chatting into one place or better organize it. Templates - There aren't enough useful templates. Part of this I imagine is because everyone uses Trello differently, but I haven't yet found one that fits my need perfectly. I'd like to create my own templates for my team to use - and there are some ways to do that, but I'd prefer to have more options than currently exist.,9,The more time I put into developing our Trello systems, the more ROI we seem to get. We have to re-evaulate for each unique project, but it typically pays off. We managed post-production for 3 seasons of TV on Trello - breaking each scene down into cards and a list being an episode. Once the organization was done, this saved massive amounts of time for my post-manager as he was able to direct new editors to the board and very easily explain how to jump in the mix and get started. We managed to accomplish a massive amount of work with a small team with a very simple project management system. Trello has been difficult to implement in a broad-strokes sort-of way. For example - when onboarding a new project/client, we have to stop and think about how a given board needs to be set up, who needs to have permission to it, and where and how the information will be shared. We had to remove almost all conversation from Trello cards and move them to slack channels in order to keep up with all the conversation as it became far too convoluted. It's not as pre-defined or process-oriented as a basecamp, which doesn't always hurt, but it does often require more time to get started on a project.,8,7,Basecamp, monday.com and Slack,Slack, Google Drive, Dropbox, Frame.io, Vimeo ProFor Personal and Small Team Kanban (w/out Swimlanes)Trello is used on a person by person bases at my organization. I use Trello as a bit of a to-do list/Kanban board. I know some teams use Trello across their group but it's more common for this to be used for personal organization at Billtrust. For group tasks, we are more likely to rely on JIRA or Clarizen.,UI - Trello is intuitive and easy to set up. Customization - You can change your background color, create as many lists as you want, as many boards as you want, color code, add details, etc. Collaboration - It is super easy to invite others to share a board or assign them tasks. In my volunteer work, we share a board and assign one another tasks. In my last company, I created a list per team member for them to move work into when they picked up the assignment. Ease of Access - I prefer the web app but the phone is easy to use too,Swim Lanes - they are nonexistent. There is a third-party tool to add them but it's buggy as all get out View - I am not sure how to do it but I really wish I didn't have to pick between viewing all cards with no detail or one with all detail. Maybe the ability to collapse and expand? Integrations - It would be amazing if I could easily pop action items from Gmail over to Trello, but right now I can only copy text or upload screenshot attachments.,8,Positive - I'm able to pop things into my Trello list for follow up later. Positive - It's free, which is fantastic. Negative - It is time-consuming bouncing between Gmail, Trello, JIRA, Confluence, Salesforce, etc.,9,8,Todoist, Remember the Milk, Evernote and JIRA Software,JIRA Software, Salesforce App Cloud, Clarizen, MySQLKanban workflows made personal and funOur company uses Trello within specific teams, rather than across the entire organization. My team (product content strategy) used Trello for task management up until a few months ago, when we switched to JIRA Software along with the rest of the product, UX design, and development teams. There are still a few teams who use Trello (like the localization team), so I use their Trello board whenever I need to request translations for dashboard copy.,Trello is extremely easy to use. You can create a board and get up and running in minutes. It's very easy to add new users, share permissions, create and edit cards, etc. Trello has a fun brand personality and UI. It sounds silly, but I loved being able to set different photographs as backgrounds -- always made me smile. Their documentation and emails are cute and easy to read. Trello is a great value price-wise and offers a very good free membership.,Trello doesn't have all of the functionality of some other competitors. For example, you can't create "swim lanes" that highlight specific issues at the top of each column, or create multiple statuses within a single column. Trello is fantastic for simple views but can appear overwhelming once you add many cards with many fields. I could get around this by filtering to only see cards assigned to myself, but it was hard to otherwise pick out my cards at a glance. Trello only offers one kanban view. You can filter this view, but it would be great if there were multiple views that let you reorganize and view your cards in different ways.,9,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.,9,8,JIRA Software,Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator CC, Google ChartsA Sleek Project Management ResourceTrello is being used basically by the project management team to organize tasks and schedule them for proper and effective execution. We have started using it for a while already whereby it has demonstrated a high level of competency and capability to handle our projects. No matter the kind of project it is, both small and large projects have been successfully managed with the use of Trello. As a project manager, I am included as a user of this software.,Trello's boards include a personal board, and also a team based board. File attachment is possible with Trello. With Trello, you can be able to collaborate better as a team when working on any project.,There is limit to the size of files that can be attached. This should be increased. The capabilities of project it can handle is also limitted. Very large projects with multiple team may not be handled properly with Trello. Offline access is still not available. Maybe they should do something about that too.,10,Trello has helped us execute projects at stipulated time frames. It does improve our team spirit when working on a project. Finally, we have been able to achieve an improved productivity.,Teamwork Projects and Workzone,Slack, Google Drive, StreakTrello is TERRIFIC!Trello is being used to make sure that tasks imperative to financial close are done on time. It also allows everyone with access to our shared Trello to see what has been done and what has yet to be done. A number of departments within Redwood use Trello for their own projects. Trello has allowed us to have visibility on the progress of financial close without constantly asking for updates and has helped us not forget any important tasks.,Check lists within a task so that if there are multiple parts to a task, you can confirm you've done every part. Visibility so everyone on your team can see what has been done and what needs to get taken care of. Labels so that we can organize by entity and importance of task clearly and color coded.,I feel like the organization of lists is a little clunky and could be a bit more visibly pleasing and easier to read. I think when you start a new list, you should be able to uncheck all tasks with one button so it's not as tedious to do it one by one. There was more room to give directions on tasks so that if someone takes it over, they can get an explanation easier.,9,The main process we use Trello for has been more streamlined since implementation. Communication on tasks and due dates is clearer. You can move tasks from one person to another easily, so when someone leaves the company, we can keep track of their tasks and not have them drop off.,8,KiSSFLOW, Microsoft 365 BusinessSimple project and task management that just works!We use Trello to collaborate with our website developers. It has been a very effective way to organize projects, tasks, and to-do items, along with all the discussions related to each one. Very user-friendly and helpful.

Saves effort. Free version saves money.,Asana,10Trello is a great tool for collaborative project managementMy colleagues and I love Trello because it allows us to easier track project progress and updates. Each project is made into a board which is then split into post its or sticky notes. These sticky notes represent the stage of the project or categorizations. This visual design allows the project managers to see movements in the whole project and who is working on these areas.,Easy to use. Affordable for startups. Good user-interface.,The sticky notes on the Trello board display limited information. Things such as due dates, comments, project descriptions, and the like are shown after clicking the notes. This makes tracking progress over large scale projects complex. No time-tracking feature - In a world of hard deadlines, lack of a time-stamp feature/deadline feature is a downside for a project management tool. For the free version, the file attachment limit is too low,10,Increase accountability amongst the team. Cost savings as we are a startup using the free version. Better communication in the organization regarding project status.,10,Azure SQL Database, Xamarin, Google DriveImproves team performance and saves timeTrello is used internally in our IT department a quick and easy tool that manages our group projects.

It's very customizable. You can change colors, positions, background, add new columns, etc. It's very lightweight and offers a good mobile version, so you can work from your phone.,New users might get lost or not know what to do with the application. It needs to have a quick guide to start working with it. No integration to other tools. We would like to be integrated into some control version software and issue trackers to sync development tasks with organization tasks. I haven't found a way to make reports to see how much it took a task to move to another status, see reports by user to know how they spend time on tasks and if they are using the application, etc.,10,As a freelancer it lets me handle multiple clients at the same time and know what's the next step to with them so I'm not forgetting any customer/client. With the reminders, I've been able to force myself to finish some tasks because I can see its end date in the calendar.,Wrike,10,Zoho Books, Zoho Desk, Zendesk,Create tasks is easy to use, just click and write a description and that's it. Controlling the status of cards is really simple and easy to see. switching between boards, you can move to another project quickly and see its cards,Deleting a task, you are forced to archive it and then delete it.,Yes,10Nothing is Forgotten!Trello is used heavy in our business for multiple departments. It is used in our development, finance, and graphic design departments. Trello is a amazing tool to keep all of the many things that need to be done in an organized way. You are able to list your tasks into multiple columns and you can even assigned the the tasks to specific individuals to work on that task.

The initial set up of a task is very simple with a description, a list of to-dos, a due date, an attachment options. It's visually appealing, with color coding and notifications when a task is due or past due.,We moved away from Trello because we couldn't create subtasks with due dates. There is no way to create dependency. There aren't many other views available, such as the Calendar, or by Member.,6,Trello took a great deal of time for the individual managing the board. We found we needed greater support for dependencies, sub-tasks that could have individual due dates, and options to view.,ClickUp, JIRA Software and Asana,5Trello, a great tool for either personal or team workTrello is a very useful project management tool, which allows our team to organize the tasks within our projects and work teams in a very quick and seamless way.

Soon after starting as a pilot, the whole Operations department was deeply involved with it, so we decided to formalize Trello as the project management tool. Processes were created around it and we started integrating it with other platforms we use as google docs, slack, and Github, among others. A few months in and other departments of the company started using Trello as well. It proved to be a very useful tool for any type of workflow or task/project-based work style. Today it is used in pretty much all departments of the company and it is the standard of the company as well.,Project Management tool. Collaborative work style.

We are using Trello mainly as a task list for things that we are not able (or not permitted) to open an tracker or incident on JIRA. Tasks like "Internal system xyz needs to be updated to the latest version of PHP". The fact that we can fully integrate it with JIRA SD and Confluence is one of the most wonderful things in Trello: you don't need to copy-paste everything. Place it in one platform and voila: you can simply import/export it to/from Trello.
  • Task management: you can assign tasks to teams or to someone in particular
  • You can, with some workaround, create a full Kanban system
  • It is a bit difficult to use in the first tries. A lot of colors, a lot of boards, a lot of projects... But you can and will get used to it easily.
In my experience, Trello is awesome if you are part of a team with more than one customer or project and you also develop internal tools (like shift schedulers, vacation control, etc) where you can't use the customer's ticket tool to document your internal progress. You simply create a board/project with your internal product and manage it from there. Let's use the first example: a shift scheduler. With Trello you can create a board/project with this name and create all internal tasks, like "Application needs to be updated to the last version of nodes", "Resolve bug xyz reported by coworker", "Implement feature abc suggested by our manager" and work from there with subtasks and to-do lists.

We use Trello to manage ongoing projects--specifically those that have many balls in the air at the same time and set time schedules that occur throughout the year. Using Trello has allowed us to 'let go' of the worry of missing a key part of the project or a key completion date. These projects have the high likelihood of being handed off for management by others, so it is key to have everything down in black and white to be sure everything continues to run smoothly, even with a change in the staff/management of the project.
  • Keeps our To-Do list organized and visible
  • Shares project status with all interested parties
  • Allows others to contribute to the tracking of the project
  • Some features are only available in the subscription version. Trello is great enough to use at home/with family projects, as well, but paying for some of the fun stuff is a hard sell.
Trello is great for tracking the progress of projects that have specific completion dates or tasks that must be finished in specific orders. We've used it for fundraising projects and event planning, not to mention planning of specific work projects. Trello's flexibility makes it so easy to set up and share new boards with interested parties.

Some people in our organization use Trello, and most users are happy to use it as their primary method to plan projects and smaller tasks. For my small Digital Media department (2 persons) we use it to store all tasks and ongoing projects. This way we keep track of anything, and can let our manager know what's ongoing.
  • Easy color categorization of the "Cards" (which can represent anything from projects to tasks)
  • Ease of use overall - you can divide work into columns and move it from column to column depending on status
  • You can create multiple boards, which are spaces to store tasks (for different work contexts, or even private boards)
  • You can easily share boards with another person
  • You can easily assign tasks (Cards) to persons
  • You can store information in cards, like files and short format text
  • 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)
It's great for easy collaboration between colleagues, but only for smaller teams. If we were to launch this in a bigger team, the board will be a mess as too many people will make edits and it's hard to keep track of everything. We use it during weekly standups and it's particularly useful for these instances, where some tasks that are not "on paper" yet can be written down in our weekly to do list.

Trello is currently being used for project management for customers going through our onboarding and training process. We track details about each customers' background, our interactions with them throughout the process, and use Trello's different channels to move cards Kanban-style through our onboarding flow. It's also free for our team, which has been very helpful.
  • Powerful free version
  • Multiple users and can save lots of data (appears to be unlimited storage)
  • Very user-friendly UI
  • Reporting capabilities within Trello are lacking
  • Trello doesn't offer a ton of customization or have various widgets quite as intuitive as monday.com
  • There have been times where users have issues with Trello loading for them
If an organization needs something free for project management, then I always recommend Trello. If they're wanting a tool strictly used internally by their team that their customers will not have access to, then this is also a great fit for them. If they need something with more reporting or customization, then I would suggest Monday.com.

My entire organization utilizes Trello at a number of levels. First, we use it to manage business development by creating a board with business leads, bid information, and proposals. Then, when a project goes into production we create a separate board or list with information about how the project will be managed through completion. Each employee also uses Trello to manage their individual day-by-day schedule by creating boards with Monday-Friday lists that help prioritize, schedule, and execute individual tasks.
  • Trello is a useful tool for breaking down project tasks in a user interface that is visually easy to understand and drag and drop friendly, while also allowing a level of detail within individual cards that allow you to keep up with specific tasks and notes based on how things are organized.
  • Checklists are one of my favorite features on Trello cards. They allow for you to add details and to-do lists for yourself or your team, and it's easy to divide and conquer or convert to cards if you need to expand.
  • I love how you can drag and drop a particular card to another list. If you need to move tasks, cards, notes, (or whatever you are using a card for) to another list, it's incredibly simple.
  • I love how open and editable Trello is. You can totally adapt it based on the project or task size - it's useful for small or large teams.
  • In some ways, the thing that is great about Trello is also what is so difficult - it's an open slate. Unless you have a clear path about how to systemize your processes, it can be a bit difficult to get started.
  • Communication - The commenting is a bit limited and on larger projects or boards, it's easy to lose track of conversations. It would be nice if there were a way to unify chatting into one place or better organize it.
  • Templates - There aren't enough useful templates. Part of this I imagine is because everyone uses Trello differently, but I haven't yet found one that fits my need perfectly. I'd like to create my own templates for my team to use - and there are some ways to do that, but I'd prefer to have more options than currently exist.
Trello is well suited for small teams working on small to medium-sized projects. For larger teams, it may be difficult to collaborate without muddying the water too much. Too many cards, boards, and lists make it hard to keep up with individual comments and details. You end up having to create multiple boards for a given project which divides the team and that is often more harmful than it is helpful, however, it can be done. Project management requires time, thought, and reevaluation in order to keep things working well in an ever-changing environment. Trello does work well in those environments if you have an open mind and willingness to experiment.

Trello is used on a person by person bases at my organization. I use Trello as a bit of a to-do list/Kanban board. I know some teams use Trello across their group but it's more common for this to be used for personal organization at Billtrust. For group tasks, we are more likely to rely on JIRA or Clarizen.
  • UI - Trello is intuitive and easy to set up.
  • Customization - You can change your background color, create as many lists as you want, as many boards as you want, color code, add details, etc.
  • Collaboration - It is super easy to invite others to share a board or assign them tasks. In my volunteer work, we share a board and assign one another tasks. In my last company, I created a list per team member for them to move work into when they picked up the assignment.
  • Ease of Access - I prefer the web app but the phone is easy to use too
  • Swim Lanes - they are nonexistent. There is a third-party tool to add them but it's buggy as all get out
  • View - I am not sure how to do it but I really wish I didn't have to pick between viewing all cards with no detail or one with all detail. Maybe the ability to collapse and expand?
  • Integrations - It would be amazing if I could easily pop action items from Gmail over to Trello, but right now I can only copy text or upload screenshot attachments.
Trello is great for personal and professional Kanban boards. It's great for small to mid-sized projects. It's hard to use for large long term projects or large teams. It also doesn't feature reporting, so for projects tied to specific deliverables and metrics, it's better to use other tools. Overall it's a great idea when you have more data than works well for physical post-it based Kanban boards but a JIRA project or Clarizen project seems like overkill.

Our company uses Trello within specific teams, rather than across the entire organization. My team (product content strategy) used Trello for task management up until a few months ago, when we switched to JIRA Software along with the rest of the product, UX design, and development teams. There are still a few teams who use Trello (like the localization team), so I use their Trello board whenever I need to request translations for dashboard copy.
  • Trello is extremely easy to use. You can create a board and get up and running in minutes. It's very easy to add new users, share permissions, create and edit cards, etc.
  • Trello has a fun brand personality and UI. It sounds silly, but I loved being able to set different photographs as backgrounds -- always made me smile. Their documentation and emails are cute and easy to read.
  • Trello is a great value price-wise and offers a very good free membership.
  • Trello doesn't have all of the functionality of some other competitors. For example, you can't create "swim lanes" that highlight specific issues at the top of each column, or create multiple statuses within a single column.
  • Trello is fantastic for simple views but can appear overwhelming once you add many cards with many fields. I could get around this by filtering to only see cards assigned to myself, but it was hard to otherwise pick out my cards at a glance.
  • Trello only offers one kanban view. You can filter this view, but it would be great if there were multiple views that let you reorganize and view your cards in different ways.
Trello is fantastic and a wonderful solution for smaller teams. Ultimately, my team needed more nuanced capabilities, and we switched to JIRA so that the content strategy, product, UX design, and development projects were all located in one place. But I continue to use the Trello boards that belong to smaller teams, and I also use Trello personally.

Trello is great for individual projects, allowing you to compartmentalize all of your tasks and literally watch your cards cross the finish line into the last column. Issues only start to arise when you're using Trello along with multiple other teams as a collaboration tool.

Trello is being used basically by the project management team to organize tasks and schedule them for proper and effective execution. We have started using it for a while already whereby it has demonstrated a high level of competency and capability to handle our projects. No matter the kind of project it is, both small and large projects have been successfully managed with the use of Trello. As a project manager, I am included as a user of this software.
  • Trello's boards include a personal board, and also a team based board.
  • File attachment is possible with Trello.
  • With Trello, you can be able to collaborate better as a team when working on any project.
  • There is limit to the size of files that can be attached. This should be increased.
  • The capabilities of project it can handle is also limitted. Very large projects with multiple team may not be handled properly with Trello.
  • Offline access is still not available. Maybe they should do something about that too.
Trello is suitable for any kind of project, especially small and medium-sized projects involving a reasonable amount of team members. It is always very effective for projects like this and the collaborative experience team members will enjoy is really remarkable. Nevertheless, it may not be your best option when the project is exceedingly large and involves a range of multiple teams.

Trello is being used to make sure that tasks imperative to financial close are done on time. It also allows everyone with access to our shared Trello to see what has been done and what has yet to be done. A number of departments within Redwood use Trello for their own projects. Trello has allowed us to have visibility on the progress of financial close without constantly asking for updates and has helped us not forget any important tasks.
  • Check lists within a task so that if there are multiple parts to a task, you can confirm you've done every part.
  • Visibility so everyone on your team can see what has been done and what needs to get taken care of.
  • Labels so that we can organize by entity and importance of task clearly and color coded.
  • I feel like the organization of lists is a little clunky and could be a bit more visibly pleasing and easier to read.
  • I think when you start a new list, you should be able to uncheck all tasks with one button so it's not as tedious to do it one by one.
  • There was more room to give directions on tasks so that if someone takes it over, they can get an explanation easier.
Trello is very helpful for big tasks that teams tackle. It helps everyone make sure that everything is done in a timely manner and that all tasks are completed. It's mostly a visible tool so for someone like me who is a visible learner, it has become a huge part of my work day.

We use Trello to collaborate with our website developers. It has been a very effective way to organize projects, tasks, and to-do items, along with all the discussions related to each one. Very user-friendly and helpful. It solves the problem of trying to manage a lot of communication and keeping people on task.
  • Project management.
  • Task organization.
  • Communication threading and archiving.
  • None
When you have a project with multiple sub-tasks and to-do items, it's easy to visually see and arrange and follow this on Trello. It's great that each person can be assigned to a specific card, and you can choose what kind of notifications you want so that you can stay on top of things.

My colleagues and I love Trello because it allows us to easier track project progress and updates. Each project is made into a board which is then split into post its or sticky notes. These sticky notes represent the stage of the project or categorizations. This visual design allows the project managers to see movements in the whole project and who is working on these areas.
  • Easy to use.
  • Affordable for startups.
  • Good user-interface.
  • The sticky notes on the Trello board display limited information. Things such as due dates, comments, project descriptions, and the like are shown after clicking the notes. This makes tracking progress over large scale projects complex.
  • No time-tracking feature - In a world of hard deadlines, lack of a time-stamp feature/deadline feature is a downside for a project management tool.
  • For the free version, the file attachment limit is too low
Trello has a freemium version which is a good starting point for many startups. Most of the functions of Trello can be performed with a freemium account. Of course, once the company grows, you will have to upgrade, but the pricing on a user level is still affordable and comes with expanded attachment capacity and customer support.

This platform saves us time and effort, it keeps us more focused on what we a retrying to finish and it makes our work progress easily shared with our supervisors.
  • Nice user-interface.
  • Great mobile app.
  • Nice reporting.
  • Progress tracking.
  • Easy to use for managing projects.
  • Mobile app is not very efficient.
Trello is well suited for small group projects so all the team members can track and see the progress of the project. It is a very reliable tool for communication as well since it allows team members to communicate and see each others work. I consider as a great tool that keeps me on track to monitor my projects' progress.

It is used among developers to handle the current status of projects. Through their different columns, each worker in a project knows the status of each task and who is working on it. Before that, we didn't have a quick way to see the scope of any project, to see if a task was planned, executed, finished, etc.
  • Quick view of any tasks, the status, and who is doing it.
  • It's very customizable. You can change colors, positions, background, add new columns, etc.
  • It's very lightweight and offers a good mobile version, so you can work from your phone.
  • New users might get lost or not know what to do with the application. It needs to have a quick guide to start working with it.
  • No integration to other tools. We would like to be integrated into some control version software and issue trackers to sync development tasks with organization tasks.
  • I haven't found a way to make reports to see how much it took a task to move to another status, see reports by user to know how they spend time on tasks and if they are using the application, etc.
It is well suited if you have many processes handled by one or many workers at the same time. These processes should pass through small steps/phases with single flows so they can be moved between columns. If you have complex flows avoid this software.

I used for my freelance work and in house stuff. The software lets you create different dashboards with different members so you don't have to mix them.

Trello is used heavy in our business for multiple departments. It is used in our development, finance, and graphic design departments. Trello is a amazing tool to keep all of the many things that need to be done in an organized way. You are able to list your tasks into multiple columns and you can even assigned the the tasks to specific individuals to work on that task. Our company is much more successful because things are getting done when they need to get done.
  • Collaboration with team members
  • Organization
  • Get Projects done faster
  • Success with Accomplishing Goals
  • Unable to Connect with other software to communicate everything.
  • Learning Curve to Use the Tool
Trello is perfect for those that have a huge project that has a ton of steps and want to make sure that everything stays organized and that no steps are forgotten. Trello has saved my developing department a ton of time because on Trello you are able to add all of the tasks that are needed to be completed to get the project done, then you can assign or organized them to the specific team members who are going to take responsibility for that task. The team mates are then able to move the task to the completed column once they are done with it. Personally, Trello is a well worth investment for almost anyone that wants to improve their organization and get projects done on time or ahead of schedule.

Trello is used solely by our ESP, and so was used by our Email Marketing team as a means to track new projects and have a visual without needing a fully stacked project management tool.
  • It's easy to create a board (or multiple boards) with unique fields to be able to track where a request is at any given moment.
  • The initial set up of a task is very simple with a description, a list of to-dos, a due date, an attachment options.
  • It's visually appealing, with color coding and notifications when a task is due or past due.
  • We moved away from Trello because we couldn't create subtasks with due dates.
  • There is no way to create dependency.
  • There aren't many other views available, such as the Calendar, or by Member.
Trello is a simple tool that can be used for small teams, but is difficult when managing major projects. The changes that need to be made within a project are all manual and more time can be spent on moving details around than work of the actual tasks. Trello is great for communication across members on a board, and has a good visual representation of all tasks. Trello is not a good option to replace a JIRA or Asana as the capabilities are not nearly as robust. We moved to ClickUp as an in between option.

Trello is a very useful project management tool, which allows our team to organize the tasks within our projects and work teams in a very quick and seamless way. With a very simple interface, it is able to give all the necessary tools for the administrative management of our tasks. Besides being used in projects and business structures, it also serves to organize your things in everyday life, with a system of Kanban methodology you can organize everything you want.
  • One can easily assign tasks to team members.
  • Very complete free version of a project management tool.
  • You can store information in cards, like files and short format text.
  • Assign priority to certain cards (easy for sorting).
  • Difficult to work with multiple cards or tasks in the user interface, like for moving, copy/paste, etc.
  • Allow tables as content for comment or description in cards.
Trello can always be utilized, either personally or in a project or work team, to organize tasks of daily life with only the creativity you have to work with. I think business use is the most appropriate because it can be integrated with other technologies to make it a little more versatile. Trello simply fits what you want to do, everything depends on your creativity.

We started using it in the Operations department to manage software development projects in a collaborative and agile manner. Soon after starting as a pilot, the whole Operations department was deeply involved with it, so we decided to formalize Trello as the project management tool. Processes were created around it and we started integrating it with other platforms we use as google docs, slack, and Github, among others.

A few months in and other departments of the company started using Trello as well. It proved to be a very useful tool for any type of workflow or task/project-based work style. Today it is used in pretty much all departments of the company and it is the standard of the company as well.
  • Project Management tool.
  • Collaborative work style. If there's a project with multiple people involved, this is the type of tool that will help you organize work for everyone.
  • Raise visibility among team members of where tasks are and what should be prioritized.
  • Super easy to use. No training needed.
  • For specialized software development process you won't be able to do things like "sprint points management".
  • Trello is perfect for team-based projects where multiple people need to work on different tasks and usually, people depend on others involvement to move forward or finalize their own tasks.
  • It works for both recurrent work or new one-off projects.
  • For projects where visibility is important, Trello performs really well because everyone can see what's going on with the different tasks.
  • Since Trello is really easy to set up, it can be used for project where you need to move quickly and don't have time to do elaborated planning.
  • Trello also works great for personal projects or house/family projects. You can keep everyone involved.

We use Trello internally to plan and manage Product Development/Research and Development initiatives. We also use Trello to manage client engagements if the client company already has Trello in place. Teams, boards, and tasks are easy to create, and Trello makes project collaboration straightforward and relatively painless, particularly when compared to more traditional project management tools.
  • Team creation and management.
  • Day-to-day task management.
  • Collaboration.
  • Reporting is almost non-existent.
  • No dashboards unless you integrate with a third-party tool.
  • Confusing for some users familiar with traditional project management tools.
Trello is excellent for small to mid-size teams that need simple project collaboration and day-to-day task management. If you're looking for a robust project management platform with resource management, Gantt charts, and robust reporting/dashboards, you will, however, be disappointed.

Trello was used to organize the projects on the basis of the deadline submission. Teams were coordinated accordingly so each teammate should be kept noted about the progress. The team works coordinated better than usual and it helped them in completing their tasks efficiently and early than expected which was incredible.
  • It is very flexible which does not burdens you at all.
  • Its sign up is free which allows you to have a free trial.
  • It keeps you aware of which tasks are done and which are under process.
  • Helps your team to develop and work in an organized pattern.
  • It should have more attractive features like time tracker.
  • It should have more trial free time for better usage.
  • It should work accurately for more gadgets.
It is excellent as it keeps your work in synchronization and best-organized pattern as well. It helps your team to achieve the best collaboration and communication with their teammates. Helps you in setting your tasks and projects according to priority wise so that focus and concentrate more. It should have a time tracker feature which is highly needed so that it keeps you updated that how much time is left in completion of a task.

We're using Trello on a project of a new feature in one of our products. We have an overview of the tasks with its status and owners on a single board and many possible changes are at a drag-and-drop action. This makes things simpler and clear, meaning more team manageability and, of course, productivity.
  • Good board overview with plenty of options for customization.
  • Easy edit with context menus and drag-and-drop actions.
  • Don't know one yet. :)
Trello is a very good tool to manage small/mid teams and their tasks. Therefore, it can also be used for personal task management. Aligned with the agile concept, this tool is kanban-like with many options that include integration with third-party apps. I guess it could be a little confusing for bigger projects with many people and complex tasks.

We've been using Trello to manage pretty much all aspects of our organizations from project management to web-development and writing copy. Trello took a rather simple idea and managed to turn it into something trully beautiful. With Trello all our team members can be on the same page and keep track of their tasks and the progress of other team members. Visual boards make it extremely satisfying to mark tasks as done.
  • User interface is extremely intuitive and easy to use
  • Team collaboration and assigning of tasks is extremely easy and well done
  • It's fairly easy to use Trello to pretty much anything from developing apps and tracking bugs to keeping up with your marketing goals and leads
  • Keyboard shortcuts and keyboard productivity usage remains rather limited.
  • Last time we checked cards are tied to a single and can't be moved between boards.
  • Apart from that that's one of the best tools on the market that remains our favorite.
Like we already mentioned, Trello can be easily adapted to pretty much anything. Here a few quick examples what we've used Trello for:
- Keeping track of bugs and assigning them to respective team members;
- Working collaboratively on site's copy;
- Researching ideas for blog posts and articles;
- Collecting user feedback and using boards too shows upcoming and planned features;

We used Trello to organize our teams and to keep track of our open assessments and at the time we utilized it for issue resolution. It worked really well. The only reason we replaced it was due to company growth. It is a very good product and I really enjoyed the features.
  • Board Collaboration was amazing! The ability to quickly create a new board and invite co-workers/teammates too was so easy.
  • Integrations - Trello, maybe the ability to add information to boards.
  • Flow of the site was very easy to understand and grasp.
  • Had some limitation on what you can and cannot do with the boards, nothing we really ran into but a few times.
  • The Layout is nice, but they could add some more options on how to view your boards, instead of always scrolling left and right
Trello is great for a company or church looking to collaborate across areas of the company where an ongoing discussion needs to happen. I can see this working great in a company were design/marketing is a focus. This tool allows for uploading of art/pictures to the boards to help aid in the discussions.

I use Trello to quickly keep track of the various projects and tasks that myself and my team are responsible for. It's solid on its own, but with certain power-ups I'm able to get even more insight into our current progress. I've found it to be much easier to explain to others and get them using versus most other project management tools.
  • Easy to use - Most people intuitively understand how to use it and understand the status of various tasks and projects.
  • Easy to visualize - I can quickly glance at our boards and understand the status of projects and what needs to happen next.
  • Affordable - It's well worth the price in terms of time saved versus other tools.
  • It can easily become a cluttered visual mess if you're not careful. I'd like to see some attachments handled differently to help this.
  • Some workflows take a few too many clicks. Nothing time consuming, but seconds add up over time.
  • There are a few quirks when using the desktop app along with power-ups. Very minor but would love to see them addressed.
If you don't require ridiculously detailed tracking of projects, Trello is a great solution. It can help from the very basic all the way to the fairly detailed. It's when you get into the ridiculously detailing project tracking needs that Trello simply won't help you. It's made for simplicity. I haven't run into any situations myself where Trello didn't help but given the tracking, some project teams do I know those situations are out there where it won't work.
