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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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 well suited for managing any small project that requires attention and close monitoring while keeping track of each task. Also, Trello board is so flexible that it allows for creating cards for projects, and within each card we can create a reminder, to-do-list, or add notes with images that help to keep us focused and meeting our deadlines.

I recommend using Trello to all those people or companies that need a good project organizer, this was a great decision to apply this tool to our entire management team. We tested Jira and other huge tools to manage our projects, but we decided to continue using Trello Due at its ease and use, it is a very reliable tool to communicate, which allows our team to work collaboratively supervising what each user does.

For a digital work team, it is a magnificent tool. Any teamwork is made much easier with Trello. Managing is easy and even more knowing the indications that are on the dashboards. As many types of files can be uploaded, I think there is no digital work that does not take advantage of Trello's features. I tried to use Trello as a personal tool and it was very confusing. For a person who wants to have this application as a personal To-Do-List, I do not recommend it.

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.

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.

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 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 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 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 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.

  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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;

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.
