Overall Satisfaction with Trello

We use Trello to manage ongoing projects--specifically those that have many balls in the air at the same time and set time schedules that occur throughout the year. Using Trello has allowed us to 'let go' of the worry of missing a key part of the project or a key completion date. These projects have the high likelihood of being handed off for management by others, so it is key to have everything down in black and white to be sure everything continues to run smoothly, even with a change in the staff/management of the project.
  • Keeps our To-Do list organized and visible
  • Shares project status with all interested parties
  • Allows others to contribute to the tracking of the project
  • Some features are only available in the subscription version. Trello is great enough to use at home/with family projects, as well, but paying for some of the fun stuff is a hard sell.
  • As a non-profit user, the investment is minimal with Trello, so ROI will of course be very positive.
Trello is easy for a non-technical person to use. Other management systems, like MS Project, frighten away less computer-savvy users. I've found this to be instrumental in getting volunteers to agree to step in and get fully involved with projects--particularly those that might span the entire year or involve many different pieces to completion.
I've actually never had to go further than the included Help to get my questions answered. That says a lot about the quality of the product.

Would you buy Trello again?

Yes

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.

Yes - It is acceptable. I sometimes get frustrated with it not signing in properly--but that is probably my phone issue, NOT Trello's problem!
I've had team members who are not at all computer savvy understand how to use at least the basic minimums after just a quick training session I've provided.
