Overall Satisfaction with Trello

We've been using Trello since the beginning of the company's organization. It aids us with our tasks creation and tracking. It's customized in a Kanban style and we've integrated it with many different tools that we currently use in our software development routines, as well as decision making, business sided ones. Currently, all our business rules are being - in a way - documented by Trello, since every step we take is also documented with a card in one of our Kanban walls. In the software development field, we've integrated it with our versioning systems so it acts as well as our history and development memory, as we use as a rule of thumb, to create a branch for each task/bug resolved with the same naming Trello renders its cards. So it becomes an easy and seamless way of keeping track of all that is being worked on in our software development routines. We've also integrated Trello with our main communication tool, providing a specific channel for displaying every Trello event that we may trigger during our routines, so the entire organization is real-time aware of all that is happening across our departments. It's been surely a main decision making and very important tool for our business.

Pros

  • Easily customizable, attending a wide plethora of tastes and necessities.
  • It provides a simple way of rearranging the created tasks, so we can define our priorities and have them clearly understandable by everyone involved in the respective task.
  • I'm colorblind. The colorblind fashioned customizable tags help me to promptly determine the nature of the listed tasks.

Cons

  • There should be a way of providing an easier shortcut to find a task that I'm currently working on at the current time.
  • Similar to the previous suggestion, there should be a way of tracking tasks by order of 'solved items'. Since sometimes it's difficult to remember by title or image hints some task that I might have worked on a couple of days before.
  • It's a tool that offers a prompt way of making clear what's to be done and what has been done. It helps us with the painstaking task of measuring progress and performance, thus rendering us an easier way of knowing and understanding whether the company has made any progress during the respective month or not.
Trello provides a simpler hands-on way to get tasks/goals tracked. JIRA's a great tool, but lacks simplicity and that cannot be beaten.
I think Trello is a great tool for anyone involved in any sort of 'project sided' nature kind of job. Also, it's a great tool to getting the mind organized - sort of like a mind storming tool - whenever a person/team has a general idea that still needs to become more detailed/refined.

If you work/deal with any routine or work that is constantly changing and you need to keep track of both its changes and its back histories, Trello is definitely the right tool for you.

Also, for people with a kind of chaotic unorganized mind, might find peace of mind by having one's ideas properly tracked down by using Trello, it's really a handy tool for that kind of people.

People who do have their job routines well established, immutable flavored ones might not find any real value in this tool.
