We are using Trello for the following things:
1. Create boards and cards according to the project.
2. We create a card for every small task that needs to be done.
3. The ability to add labels and assign cards makes it easier to know the stage the task is in and the person responsible to complete it.
4. Boards can be set as public or private. It's great to display a public roadmap for a product.
5. We use Trello to manage tasks within our organization. It is a great tool when you have many people working on something.
6. It can also be used to manage one's to-do list.
7. We also have a few public boards that we share with our users and use to display a roadmap for our products.
- Tool to organize and manage tasks: We can create lists, activities, upload documents, and share them with our colleagues. It is very easy to use and I have not only used it for my company but also for personal use, as it also allows me to have multiple projects on the same board.
- Flexibility and Ease of use: I love how simplistic and visual Trello is. Instead of having to mentally keep track of tasks or flow or keep track via email, I can organize all the information about a project in a visually appealing and intuitive way. Checklists are the key part of this tool.
- Prompt Notification Service: the fact that you can follow a card and be notified when a team member completes a task without actually being tagged is amazing. It sends emails that are easy to digest about the new changes.
- It doesn't have a feature to make a task repeat. The user needs to keep on adding the task if the task needs to be done frequently.
- Integrated support for media playback (audio, video) would be very welcome -- i.e. when referencing a media file, it would be nice if it could provide player functionality right within the Trello card, rather than merely linking to the content.
- More customization options are needed.
To organize tasks at a small level team, Trello works efficiently. But it will have issues for large team management.
- Multiple task lists up at once.
- Multiple ways to provide and assign tasks, well organized.
- Freedom to build a workflow that best fits your team.
- Personally, I don't need the pats on the back, power-ups, cute stickers, etc.
- I wish the UI was a bit easier.
- It would be nice to see how it's used with other companies to see how it can be developed more in our business.
- Several distinct areas or sections can be implemented to segregate different zones or work areas.
- Real time updating of information and user-restricted access to each zone.
- Easy to collaborate on different stories and sections, and easy user management.
- It isn't a particularly aesthetically pleasing design. It is boring but practical, but you can personalise more with a premium account.
- It can be difficult to manage several areas within Trello at any one time, and there is no possibility of hiding areas that you aren't working on at any one time, so everything is visible all of the time. It can be clumpy.
- Notifications of new additions to areas or new content would be useful rather than relying on people visiting to see changes.
The bigger the organisation, the more consideration needs to be given to how exactly Trello is used to give the users the best experience, or even if multiple instances of the platform is necessary.
- Pointing to the next task you have to complete.
- You can download all your pending tasks and organize them as you see fit.
- You can delay tasks if you need to.
- You can see your completed tasks so you can keep track of your progress.
- It's not too intuitive to use, it can be difficult when you're new to this app.
- Not much filtering. You can't add subcategories.
- The search and the handling of the tasks in the project are incredible since it can always be shown at a glance with the details and the labels that it has.
- Sectioning the files and dividing them by card is an excellent advantage in terms of the order of each of the tasks since you can search and assign something in specific.
- It is also very useful to assign permits that have trello, thanks to this you can have more than one project manager to facilitate their management in the environment of a group.
- When removing a card is difficult because you must delete each of the tasks to then remove the card, it also makes it difficult to eliminate each task since it is not at first glance the option to delete.
- The calendar also does not work correctly since once the date is assigned it will be automatically deleted and this causes the previous control of the assigned tasks to be lost, they should be eliminated if once the assigned task was fulfilled after its confirmation.
- It is really great if you enjoy customizing your workspace. You can change the background. You are able to move the tiles around. You can have multiple lists. Everything can be organized on top of itself.
- Each tile is what I use to define a project. Then, within the tile, I create topics, which are considered "cards". The card houses my checklists and timelines. It is a pretty nice drop down way of understanding. You can add a description to the card. There can be additional comments made by other people. You may add a due date.
- You can extend the accessibility of your list to other people. I am able to add or remove someone from viewing. You share a link with them to see your board.
- This is a personal preference. The way you organize each tile is from left to right. I prefer when I can go up and down.
- You can't ever really delete something. You are able to archive or move. You may be able to delete something but I am pretty tech savvy and it shouldn't be this hard to sort out. You can't collapse it either.
- I don't think this is the best project management tool in regards to functionality. If I put a due date on something, I would like there to be an alert or reminder associated with it. I could be underutilizing the tool, but again, as a tech savvy person, it should be a little more obvious on how to use their features. They could go down the route of Salesforce and Nintex and put together tools that would help someone in their setup.
- It allows to organize almost anything, from projects to daily tasks, all in one place without complications and the best, it can be accessed from any device
- It is excellent to collaborate as a team, it allows to work in an environment in which each member of a team will know what is being done and is still to be done.
- It is specially designed to bring everything more organized, especially in those people who work on multiple projects at the same time and need to meet the deadlines.
- The free version lacks advanced features and you will need to pay for a license if you have a large company with many users.
- It lacks global labels, it is necessary to specify labels on each board.
- Everything is organized on boards, at the beginning it can be confusing, for example, to assign a task you have to first think about which board corresponds, look for it, enter it and just assign the task.
- The simplicity of the interface. Really simple and easy understanding. It is just a board with sticking cards and lists on a first look.
- Free usage. Small just opened companies could save money on managing and tracking stuff but with less functionality.
- It works on all common platforms. There are apps for iphone and android, web, even Slack.
- It is easy to choose on what basis to organize lists and cards on the boards. In fact, the program is universal and suitable for both personal purposes and for business.
- On small screens Trello becomes not so convenient.
- It is a bit difficult to add automation, repetition and rapid tasks to implement.
- I suppose Trello could be not enough for really large companies.
- I adore its didactic form by which you can create and organize the tasks you need to remember. Its easy handling is what stands out because it is very intuitive.
- It does not require many procedures or capacities in the computer because you can work it from the web without having to download extra files.
- It is very editable and customizable in addition to being very useful for your daily tasks.
- I do not like the function of the calendar with assignment of the task. It takes an expiration date, and if it passes to that date the task is automatically removed even if it hasn't been fulfilled.
- When connecting the project as a group, it often limits the members due to the connection.
- Helps keep you organized on all projects
- Easily visibility with team members to find out who is working on project and get updated information
- Can set up several different boards to track a variety of tasks
- Spell check would be nice feature to add
- It allows you to determine how to make many reports about your projects. It also makes a quick and easy and visual configuration, easy to share, shows a specific project or process, project management, team collaboration, to-do list. It's a great way for a team to collaborate. I love being able to manage my own tasks in the same place that I manage team's simply by creating another board.
- I wish I had some subcategories through which I could filter.
- I also want a spreadsheet-type view without exporting.
- There's not much I do not like, probably just that the user interface is too simple. Hopefully add a part where we can add documents and files for clients or for a specific project.
- Easily organize activities and projects collaboratively.
- You can track any task, it contains a history of the recent activities of each member.
- It is a totally online platform that does not require many features of your computer, also has a native application for mobile devices.
- You can share all kinds of documents and files with your team.
- They should improve the search engine for tasks since you find almost nothing.
- Its interface is very basic, it could be a bit better
- Available colors are limited, you should have more to choose from.
- It would be great to hide certain boards to be displayed on the main screen.
- Help to implement Agile projects, for example software projects.
- Integrated with cloud platforms such as Google Drive and Dropbox.
- High visibility for all members of a project. Team members uss an intuitive system of boards, lists and cards.
- Can enable security access, using users' profiles.
- Can be used for applying polls.
- No visible numeric progress of activities.
- Task status must be changed manually.
- Trello has an intuitive interface for organizing boards and tasks. The kanban-style layout of the boards is simple and logical - categories are arranged left to right, tasks are arranged from top to bottom. It only takes seconds to understand the goals of the interface with minimal experience needed.
- The interactions within Trello feel natural and are consistent with what you would expect - double clicking to edit, drag and drop to move, etc. The interactions aid, rather than inhibit, my usage of Trello.
- Theming - Trello allows users to theme their accounts/boards. When using multiple boards, it is awesome to not only customize the board to look and feel they way you want it to, but it also allows me to know exactly which board I am viewing at a glance.
- Some of the deeply nested actions are a little hard to get at, and not organized in the most logical way. A specific example of this is deleting a task - it is first set to "Archived", which forces the user to click again to "Delete". This process seems a bit verbose for such a simple task.
- Icons are a bit overused in the interface, making some of the actions they represent a little obscure. The most glaring example of this is the large "+" at the top right of the interface. What am I adding? a Board? a Card? a Task? I like interfaces that allow for discovery, but something as simple as 'adding' anything should be immediately clear.
- As well as Trello handles the kanban-view, I would love to see other styles of views for my cards and tasks. I am not exactly sure how other views would be accomplished, but I would love to see list views, calendar views, and even 'joined' views, where cards can have linked dependencies.
- To organize an event. You can describe, step by step, all the work to have an event under control, with the responsibility of each worker. It shows the progress or stagnation of each person and can attend any difficulty in time.
- To assign research guidelines to journalists. The subject is assigned, the readings that must be consulted, the interviews are planned and a deadline for delivery is given. With Trello, the journalist indicates the progress of each step.
- Organize the tasks of the audiovisual production team. Once the work topic is defined, the activities that must be fulfilled for each phase of the audiovisual production are described, with dates of deployment, production, and final delivery.
- Trello works by boards, which sometimes makes it difficult to work when we needed, for example, global labels. On each board, you must define and/or repeat your labels specifically.
- We use it for small projects because its boards are limited when it comes to the management of many people or very large projects.
- UI & UX are great in Trello, it is easily readable and you get a sense of everything by spending very little time on Trello dashboard.
- Email integration is great with Trello, you don't have to go back and forth to fill things.
- Creating checklists within tasks is a great feature which helps in creating shorter checkpoints.
- I don't find many problems with Trello because it does the work well for its scope and I would not complain about the product because it is free.
- Very little learning curve. We had a brief tutorial, but I learned how to use it pretty quickly by playing around on my own. It's very straightforward and user-friendly.
- The software makes it very easy to stay organized across multiple teams. Previously we had a much more scattered process and Trello allows us to manage projects more easily.
- The integration with Google Docs is very helpful.
- Occasionally, it's a bit sluggish to load.
- Creating new cards in Trello can sometimes be a pain, but it's not a deal breaker for me.
- It's a free software, but there are "powerups" you have to pay for that I haven't tried out.
- Trello is very effective at allowing a user to organize ideas in a personal fashion. Yes, the software has constraints in which you must work, but the card-based concept is easily accepted by an user who has every written ideas on scraps of paper.
- Trello is available as a mobile app, a Mac app and as a website so the software adapts to and leverages the advantages of the platform on which you are currently work.
- Trello also allows easy updates via email so ideas don't have to be filed for later action. Receive an emailed request and forward it directly to the appropriate Trello board.
- Trello is very good when collaborating with users who are outside your organization, don't have a company email address or are on the other side of the world.
- Trello is not as robust a product for the Windows environment, although the web interface is as functional as most users will need.
- Trello does not make it easy to completely delete content. The archive function is useful but sometimes you just want to get rid of something completely.
- Trello does note currently offer an offline editing function which would be very useful.
- Trello helps a user to visually see what's not yet done, what should be done, what's the level of priority of the tasks and what have been done already.
- Trello makes you create a checklist under each card and you can copy the checklist in other cards.
- Trello allows you to put labels on each card which tells to which certain the task is related to.
- Trello should offer a list of way of doing things like Asana. List way means like just adding task as a line under a section in Asana.
- Trello should have more app integrations too. It would be helpful if Harvest Time tracker, Toggl or Hubstaff can be integrated to Trello.
- Trello should have a sound notification option so people will easily know if some tasks needs their immediate attention.
We add other elements to indicate status and we use comments to provide detail on where we are for each item. The time stamp helps with this too.
In this way, we have a secure, easy way to communicate about our progress on key items that we need in order to make sure customers successful with our product and services.
- I like how easily you can move cards up, down, and across lists. This makes it super easy to show the priority and progress of specific items.
- I also like how easy it is to customize. Adding color coding and moving things around is very easy to do and it makes it easy for people to understand what's going on at a glance and to dig into it.
- I like how easy it is to add users. We often start with a small team but have to add other stakeholders that are interested in it. This makes it easy to ensure EVERYONE is on the same page. This turns previous decisions into artifacts so no one has to ask where we are on something or what we decided.
- I honestly don't have a lot of recommendations for making things better.
While most of what I use it for is for collaborating with others, I also use it for my personal to do list. Again, it's very easy to track and prioritize items.
- Very complete free version.
- You can create an infinite number of boards and organize everything as you want because it is very flexible.
- You can create delivery deadlines, finish a task or schedule alerts to be aware of your goals to achieve. You can do it very dynamically to get the most out of it.
- You can invite anyone to join your work dashboards with just one email account. You do not have to register or go through a complicated process to start using Trello.
- There is no bar graph that tells you the scope of the project or statistics that tell you how the team's work is going.
- It does not have a properly established calendar, you can place dates but it's nothing special.
- Difficult to work with multiple cards or tasks in the UI, like for moving, copy/paste and such.
- To organize the activities and responsibilities of my life
- To manage my personal and entrepreneurial projects. (Blog, channel, Etc)
- To assign tasks and responsibilities.
- I find it a bit problematic to manage the work teams. I think they can improve this aspect more.
- The storage on the boards is a bit limited ...
- I would like a client to work without an internet connection. That would be great.
Slack helps us stay on track with our projects and make sure that things don't fall through the cracks. The problem that we used to have was it was very difficult to hold people accountable for tasks. Now, the boards are available to everyone and there's accountability for all to keep it up to date.
- Organizes different departments of our business
- It streamlines accountability for tasks that have to be completed
- It makes it possible to see where different people in your organization may be stuck and allows you to communicate right on the boards
- Trello can add a few more tools in its tool belt to make it more robust
- If people don't take responsibility for managing the boards, they can become disorganized very quickly
The marketing department uses it to follow up on marketing projects and add comments and discussions internally.
The art team uses it as an art request tool, using it's deadlines and watch references that are uploaded to it. When the job is done, they tag the relevant requester and upload the final art to there.
It's very easy use, very easy to adjust to and worth the price for extra addons!
- Easy to upload, control and adjust to each department project management tasks.
- Great to upload art and tag for different purposes. Highly adjustable
- Can be used for completely free! No actual work stoppers restrictions
- Trello has a limited number of tag colors which can be a bit confusing if you have a lot of things to tag
- Sometimes images are uploaded in lower quality for some reason, doesn't always happen
- Have limited view options, could be great to have more view options
Artists love using it since it's very easy to learn and get into and very hard to stop working with.
Trello is less appropriate for economy followup and tasks, doen't sums up economic data and could cause an "easy to lose" situation with it.
