Overall Satisfaction with Trello

Simply put, it quickly and visually provides visibility of my workload.

Trello is used to manage most of my ideas and work related projects. It acts as the blueprint for what I'm responsible for planning, creating and maintaining. It allows me to quickly see where projects are at in the process and how I can move them forward to the next step.

In addition to my own use, I use Trello to manage my client's projects. If we're building a website or managing their entire marketing department, Trello is scale-able to use in either scenario.
  • It allows for the user to implement their own workflow for projects and ideas and quickly change them as the project progresses.
  • The user interface is fun and easy to use. This extends to the ease of their mobile app.
  • It is easy to organize, prioritize and group projects, ideas and campaigns.
  • It makes it easier to provide visibility to clients on what projects they have going on by acting as a dashboard.
  • Start small with little details or go big with tons of features. Trello allows you to take it where you need it.
  • It lacks some of the numerical organizational elements a database or spreadsheet would have.
  • The lists are great, but it would be great to have list segmentation for certain applications.
  • It would be nice to have some automatic sorting options for cards.
  • It has made managing my ideas, projects and activities easier and more enjoyable.
  • It allows me to share it with clients to easily and visually convey the projects we're collectively working on.
  • It facilitates collaboration and dialogue on specific tasks and projects.
  • It has brought life by creating a visual context to organize projects.
  • It allows me to stay updated on what is going on in my work.

Trello is way more flexible than the other tools I've used. Workflows can be created in numerous ways. Usually, if Trello does not do what I want it to, I can find a way to make my idea work in their system. With other tools, it can be more limiting and too structured.

Trello is visually more interesting and has an enjoyable user experience clicking, switching and moving items around. While it does have it's limitations, Trello is a great project management tool to start with.

If you're considering using Jira, Trello is a great transitional tool to use in the meantime. Its structure is similar, but simple enough to test it out.

If you are currently managing people, projects and tasks through email, Trello is a great tool to use. It creates some level of structure but is easy enough that a quick jump from email is realistic.

If you are using a tool like a spreadsheet, Trello can be a good fit for organizing ideas in a more enjoyable and visual way.

If you like Pinterest and you need a tool to organize activities, Trello is a match made in heaven.
