Overall Satisfaction with Trello

Trello is being used to manage the series of events we put on. We have boards that manage our marketing, operations, team culture, sponsors, and general business. The program is being used by our management team, but it's audited at the board level.

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
  • Trello has streamlined many areas of our business and has positively impacted our productivity.
  • We do not spend our meetings now talking about what has to be done. Instead, we open up Trello and are held accountable for the tasks that are on the board, or add new ones when necessary.
  • Trello has positively impacted the time it takes to share and edit work, because you can upload the most revised copy of your work to the platform and associate it with the proper task/Trello card.
I have not used any competing products.
Trello is useful for teams that have targets that they have to reach and can conceptualize those targets into smaller and actionable goals. It is also a great tool to bring into debrief meetings since the team can update the board together and address any areas why people are getting stuck.

Using Trello

6 - The business functions they represent include everything from sales, marketing, sponsorship procurement, event logistics, and general management.
4 - The skills required to support Trello are fairly rudimentary. If you can connect to the internet, type in a web URL, drag-and-drop some boxes, and upload documents, you are fit to use Trello. Also, if you have someone who can hold the entire team accountable for using the product, it keeps things organized and prevents the boards from becoming disorganized.
  • Managing projects
  • Keeping the most up-to-date documents stored and ready for review
  • Growing our sales funnel
  • organize your day
  • create a reading list of books
  • time track each individual responsibility
  • organize your creative writing and social media calendar
  • Make documents uploads shareable with others outside the organization and allow for each page to be tracked for engagement
  • Allow for phone conference minutes to be recorded and uploaded to specific boards
  • Build travel review catalogues that you can share with friends
I am very likely to renew Trello, because it doesn't cost anything to do so. I am also very likely to use Trello's upgraded features in the future because a lot of my team's data is stored on there and they have already gotten used to the platform. Trello is very easy for new team members to pick up, making the onboarding and usability very streamlined.
