Trello Software


 

Launched in 2011, Trello is a visual collaboration tool for planning tasks and projects. While commonly used by agile software development teams, the solution is also used in other departments such as marketing, sales, support and HR. The web-based solution provides tools to define projects, their requirements and the workflow to ensure projects are completed in a planned sequential manner.

Trello offers a digital board to create, organize and prioritize actions. Administrators or managers can even define workflows, assign tasks to individuals or teams, set deadlines and monitor progress. Trello cards allow users to collaborate with each other. Users can add comments, add members and attach documents to the tasks assigned to them.

Trello has a free subscription, but also offers a professional package, with the privacy and administrative settings required by large enterprises. Trello integrates with a number of online applications including JIRA Cloud, Bitbucket Cloud, Google Drive, GitHub and Slack.

Pros

I love how Trello is so easy to use. It really helps me to organize my task and project. It is easy to share and the learning curve is very low.

Cons

The only thing I would like to see improve is the flexibility of notification. I would be nice if I can customize the notification schedule.

I use this for work and for personal organization!

Pros

I like the drag and drop of my "stickynote" boards.
Being able to have multiple team members comment and share updates on a list item.

Cons

More color coding options for the board would be great. That's my only feedback for the software program.

Pros

We use Trello for Company Meetings, Assigning Task, Creating your own to do's etc. You are able to assign specific people to different Trello boards. Ex: Managers Meeting you can assign all your managers to the board to allow each manager to list out things they would like to talk about keeping the meeting organized and everyone better informed. You are able to assign your employees' certain task when they have completed the task they can mark it as completed on Trello and make any notes as necessary. Very good Organizational tool.

Cons

I have not used any other Products similar but I do think it would be a neat feature if they were able to add a notification tab, or alert. If something new was added to the board it could notify a assigned person that it was added. If trello was able to have a timeline of boards so if it is close to the deadline or time frame it would alert, or notify that the dead line is coming up soon.

We started to use Trello a year ago, to help our web design people to manage their several task as. Slowly, creative teams, content producers and event PR people join the tool to integrate projects in one single platform. Trello helps us to have one information base and to preview tasks with an easy to use interface.

Pros

The interface, the flexibility and the intuitive tools that put together text and key visuals allow people from different areas to know whats's happen.

Cons

It's hard to design a long term task calendar.

I think Trello has really under estimated its value and how it can be marketed to a variety of different companies and fields. I would be curious to see if they would eventually market to different groups.

Pros

It takes complicated information and visually makes it easier for people to understand almost every concept. I have used Trello to onboard new employees at a tech company, to explain my vision for production design to a movie director, and to help provide socially conscious resources to those who didn't know where to find them.

Cons

I can't really imagine a con for Trello. I haven't been able to find one yet. I think the reward system for the gold plan is great and being such an advocate for them I rarely go without it.

Value for Money

As an individual that has a leaning towards Scrum as a methodology for project management, Trello is a great tool. While limited in different aspects as outlined in the Cons section of this review, ultimately, I don't think there is a better tool for maintaining transparency and assigning task responsibility in a startup-esque, Agile environment.

Pros

Strong desktop and mobile interface. Simple to use, visually appealing because of the color-coding feature. Freebase version, fairly priced "plug-ins" to use if desiring to link up Google docs or other 3rd party programs.

Cons

Not industry-specific, may not be accepted by individuals working in a traditional project management structure, as Trello is an Agile-oriented tool.

Advice to Others

Try the free version out for yourself as a personal task list tool, and move from there. Download the phone application.

Great for organizing and reorganizing content or projects

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

I've been using Trello for a while for a number of different projects. I use it with a team to help coordinate tasks so each member has their own list and each assignment becomes its own card. I use this for my design business to organize clients and their projects by making a list for each client then adding projects as cards. I also use this for my blog so I have a way to have ideas, things to research, what to write, edit, create graphics for, publish, promote, etc. I've even used Trello to organize some of my daughter's activities at school and outside of school.

It's a really flexible system that can be used for a ton of different applications. The ease of moving cards around and reorganizing them makes this idea work for a lot of different systems. I've really enjoyed using Trello over other systems because of how flexible it is.

Pros

The ability to move things around and organize a system, however each user sees fit, which can be different for different projects.

Cons

It's overwhelming because of the unlimited options available but Trello does do a good job of providing guides to get you started.

Advice to Others

The options can be overwhelming when first starting but stick with it and know that you can customize it however you want.

Trello is the best way to organize all my projects - both for work and for home. Together with the mobile app it super easy to create checklists and save files for each project and task.

Pros

Trello uses the 'cards' way of organizing project tasks / milestones. Each card is easy to use and can include checklists, files, comments and due dates. This makes it super easy to organize project flow ideas quickly.

Cons

Most other project management tools have a built in time tracking functionality. Trello doesn't. So I have to use Toggl as a Chrome extension to be able to track time on Trello tasks.

As a collaborative productivity platform, Trello is great for organizing a team's workflow. The visual manner in which cards and projects are laid out is very appealing, and makes it easy to quickly recognize tasks that need to be completed.

Trello lacks some functionality that would make it an indispensable tool. Namely, it is very difficult to create recurring tasks with repeated due dates. It is not possible to assign a due date to specific checklist items, and when a task has multiple dates associated it's very easy to lose track.
