Trello Software


 

Trello is a visual collaboration tool for planning tasks and projects. While commonly used by agile software development teams, it’s unique in its accessibility for non-developers, and has been adopted by many users in many different verticals.

Since it was launched in 2011, Trello has focused on fine-tuning its Kanban card wall interface, in which cards represent the tasks of a project. Users can drag-and-drop the cards from board to board to indicate the status of a task or project (e.g., boards that indicate completed work, ongoing work and remaining work).

Trello has a free subscription, but also offers a professional package, with the privacy and administrative settings required by large enterprises. The Web-based platform reports over one million active users each month.

The ease of use, it doesn't take much start up time. It's got great add-ins and works really well on the app on your phone. It also emails you updates if you haven't logged in since any other team members' have made changes.

The billing is a little confusing, but the staff is always there to help. The Gold membership that is free doesn't seem to have any differences to just the free.

Recommendations

Highly recommend making a mock board, just to learn about all of the abilities.

Very easy to use, I love the card system, familiar with it through the Agile Learning model but was using Trello long before I learned about Agile.

Likes Least

Maybe there's something I'm missing in terms of how to use the product, but I would like it to be easier to see a summary of action items that I am responsible for.

Recommendations

I find at the beginning of projects, people are gung ho about tracking projects they're working on, but over time software like Trello often doesn't get used. Make sure you really need to be tracking projects to this extent, and have people who see the value of using the software before starting (although there isn't a whole lot of harm in starting and then realizing people aren't using it - at that point you just need to have a conversation about the consequences of not using it are to the team). Again, I think this is an issue with any software, not just Trello.

Trello offers an effective, functional and easy to use Kanban-styled experience to manage projects of any size. While I use it primarily for small personal independent projects, it scales well to larger environments with its robust architecture. Trello has one of the best visual interfaces of products in its class. It also keeps features and functions to just the essentials with a handful of extras to improve the experience.

It also allows for the creation of private and public boards with an extensive list of flexibility to fit your needs. It has everything you need and nothing you do not.

Likes Least

There are only a couple of features missing from the vendor's edition of the product. But these have been addressed by 3rd party app developers. The only feature I truly feel would make this product complete is the ability to track time and provide reports and metrics. Lacking these features makes it difficult to use on projects where time tracking and invoicing is critical. But if this type of functionality is not a requirement, Trello would be an exceptional tool that scales.

Recommendations

Trello is simple and effective, as well as powerful and highly functional. But in enterprise environments or with large scale projects, Trello may present a challenge only if compiling metrics is required. If you are looking to work in true Kanban-style and not Scrum, then Trello will definitely work. If using other Agile processes where time, cost and delivery is crucial and must be reported periodically, then Trello may not be the best fit. My recommendation is to try Trello on a small simple project first, like I did. I found out that it works well for small, short duration Kanban project where small teams of up to 5 folks can work together. I strongly believe it can be scaled to larger teams as well and I have seen it used in teams of up to 9 folks across multiple projects.

Trello is a fantastic and free product. It's widely used and super user-friendly. I like the fact that it presents kanban-style boards that make it easy for anyone to work with either a personal project, or group projects. This is great for anyone not using scrum or agile.

Likes Least

The feature set is fairly limited. It's best for people working in non-agile environments, but it does what it does very well.

Recommendations

If you or your organization is not currently using agile, this is the software I recommend for you to get started with planning.

I like that this product is able to track multiple things in KanBan style (columns) for different phases of tasks. Then you can add members, notes, to-do lists, and other helpful features. It's very helpful for keeping track of things and collaborating. Also, I use a shared workspace and it's great for design tasks as the uploaded photos show up on the cards they are assigned to.

Likes Least

I am great at managing one board at a time, but I get pretty confused when I have tasks assigned to me on multiple boards. So if the leadership board has a task assigned to me, the consolidated view is cluttered and not helpful. In addition to that, items that are marked complete still show up in your to dos until you archive them. This isn't helpful. It would be great if they could mark one of the lists in your board "DONE" so that these tasks didn't show up in all of your notifications.

Recommendations

I think that you should really decide what you want. We looked at so many different options and ended up with a more robust product that could track time and do some other functions. If you have a small team and are using Trello's functionality to the full, it will probably work well for you. I keep my personal tasks and wedding planning in Trello, but for complex work related projects I think it falls short for my needs.

Trello allows me to keep track of ever changing priorities. It's one of the easiest to use task management applications that I have ever used, not to mention that it looks good. You can setup your Trello account however you believe it would help you most. That's probably the best thing about the product.

Within Trello, you create boards. Each board contains one or more task lists. Each task list contains a card. A card can be a note to yourself or a checkbox task list. Every card can have a due date and be assigned to someone else who has access to your board. This means you can have a board for just yourself, your entire team, or your whole company. There are literally an unlimited number of ways to organize your Trello.

Likes Least

It would be nice to have a way to see all cards that you are assigned to all at once. I would also like to be able to reorder labels. There are labels I use more frequently that are further down the list and I feel that I'm wasting time trying to find the correct one when selecting a label.

Recommendations

It does take a while to get acclimated to the software. There are so many features that it can feel overwhelming when you first start to use it. I would recommend just starting out using it as a task management software for your own projects before incorporating other team members into the mix.

Trello is one of popular project management system. Most of project management tools have similar features But Trello has a unique feature, which is drag and drop of project tasks into different stages. SO i can move a task in a number of custom defined stages based on its current status. This really helps us understanding where we are with a project and we can get the exact status.

I would like an integration with GitHub of Trello. So like Planio, if I can upload the files and Trello auto commit it to GitHub, that would be great!

I wish there was a way to display all the boards on which you are a member. Even on Business class it doesn't seem like there is a way to do this. We have to use the tag feature for each of our team members to do this.

Use it for a couple of real projects. It tooks us a few times to nail down what works best for our teams.

If all you need to worry about is task management, this is the best option on the market. If you have projects, folders, clients... it can be overwhelming.

The use of the web app is very intuitive and so far everytime I've tried to figure out a way to do something weird they'd already thought of it and had an article explaining how to do it. Most of what I've had to figure out that they offer was stuff regarding markdown formatting in the comments. The shortcut keys are also very well thought out and actually useful.

Likes Least

I don't have any complaints thus far. I've been using the tool everyday for about 4 months now for work.

Recommendations

Any new piece of software is going to take some time to figure out and become proficient with. I think Trello is particularly easy in this regard, but if you're new to it give yourself a few days to get acquainted and you'll be glad you did.

Project visibility. I like that the team can see who is working on what, when it's due, and what's left to be done. Our customers also have visibility into our internal processes with a project, which is paramount.

I actually like it a lot, so I don't really have room to complain.

Recommendations

Practice with your own personal projects. Put a trello help column at the beginning of the board that shows shortcuts and helpful hints. Save on the project template so you can easily copy each time.

I love the flexibility in customizing my boards and tasks. I also love the way everything is organized on my screen - instead of a huge list that scrolls down the page, I can see everything on my screen at once and get an overall view of what's going on. It forces me to intelligently prioritize my incoming assignments.

I'm still a relatively new user, so nothing to add at this time!

Recommendations

Trello is a great way to get a holistic view of your assignments and projects. List-based task management apps like Asana do the job, but I've found that I needed to get away from simply taking assignments without context. Trello allows me to do that.

Trello's interface is extremely clean and easy to use. It's just customizable enough to allow users to make it work for their needs without being overwhelming. Visualizing the cards/boards/tasks helps to understand how each piece of work fits into the overall progress of a project. I personally prefer to use Trello for more personal project management, so I can't speak to the collaborative aspect, but I use it as a "first stop" to jot down things to remember to do before committing them to another tool that I share with colleagues.

I have been trying to find a way to create a recurring card on a list and haven't figured it out. That's my only negative at this point!

Recommendations

Consider using this for more than just work! I use mine to plan trips (packing lists, errands, links to attractions/hotels) as well as groceries and normal day-to-day errands. You can set up private boards that you don't have to share with anyone.
