Overall Satisfaction with Trello

We use Trello across the organization for managing our responsibilities and deadlines. We assign tasks to users and follow up deadlines during each weekly check-in.
  • It is super simple to use.
  • There's no training needed. It's very self-explanatory and uncomplicated.
  • The deadlines are easy to manage through the notifications via email.
  • Its simplicity is also its handicap. I cannot get any of our developers to use Trello. They are sticking with GitHub (understandably) so I have to use Trello for mostly managerial tasks (across no-tech users) and follow-up with GitHub for developer-related tasks
  • If there was a way to connect to GitHub, that'd be epic.
  • Simplicity made us adopt it and get rid of sheets and google sheets/docs.
  • There's lots of time saved, and avoiding confusion on what we had decided in who will do what.
We chose it for ease of use, ease of adoption, and a pleasant UI.
We didn't need to contact their support so far, so I can't rate this aspect of it, and since N/A isn't an option, I marked the middle.
If you have a super busy team that needs a very simple solution, Trello is the way to go. We have a team of people who are post-it lovers. They do everything with post-its. Well, that's exactly how Trello functions. Write on a post-it, assign to them, attach a deadline, voila.
But it isn't your tool to manage developer tasks. Maybe you can track bugs, but since the dev team won't deal with anything else but GitHub (for us, and Jira for my former team) we stick with just managerial staff.
