Trello Software


 

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.

My Trello Experience

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

We used Trello extensively in my previous company.
We managed to push products from Concept to Production rather efficiently because of the Kanban board-esque feel of Trello.
I would recommend this Product anytime, especially to start-ups.

Pros

The ease of use.
Post-it Notes, Kanban Boards.
It makes your management easier.
And keeps your notes accessible anywhere anytime.
You can assign Tasks to your team mates and Flag them as Done or Pending.

Cons

Sometimes when a project gets too big the Notes gets somehow clustered.
But it can be fixed by properly managing the Management tool.

We have starte using this program for events in our office. Wow, it is so useful for everyone who has acess to be able to make changes update information and generally plan our events with out having to email and snd out messages! Notices go out to individuals, letting them know something has been added or changed and by whom. We are using it for all of our offices special events.

Cons

I kind of wish you could see more information on the cards that are added to each board instead of clicking on it and searching that way especially when you just want to make a quick change and don't want to did for the information.

Fantastic way of organizing your life or different projects that you have going on. It has many nice features and you can even share your projects with collaborators.

Mostly for visual learners. It was tricky to use initially because options seem limited at first and it is very visual. I am not as much of a visual learner, so it was a tad confusing at first, but once I understood how to use it, it was great!

Trello is great for bug tracking and test case creation for Quality Assurance Testers like us.

Pros

As a Quality Assurance Tester, it is easy to create cards for bugs and easily to tag the developer who created the feature/enhancement/bug fix. User can also upload screenshots for accuracy recreating the bug or feature found by the tester.

Cons

Trello doesn't have report on the cards remaining, how many cards is closed today or for this month or week. Trello should have reports and can be downloaded by user.

Its a good software for basic projects but overall I do prefer another brand over this one.

Pros

Easy to assign tasks to employees. Tracking and moving tasks through different stages is really easy to do.

Cons

Within the task, you cannot assign a subtask to a different person and assign due dates for the sub task. The causes the board to become cluttered with tasks for each individual person and makes it a little more difficult to track.

We benefit using Trello because we only use Excel sheets and sticky notes for noting tasks. Trello helps us to see our current workload and alert us if our tasks is on due.

Pros

I like its board. I can also link this to another 3rd party software (Google Drive, Slack, Jira, etc) using Trello's Power-Ups

Cons

I need to add "Power-Ups" so I can have good automation integration function. When I have new notifications, there are no notification sounds and I will only know if I have notification when I open the Trello tab in Chrome.

Simple and effective software.

Pros

I love how Trello lets teams be collaborative so easily. It has a great UI and little to no learning curve. The dashboards/cards are easy to understand. Easy to assign tasks and comment on others' work. Helpful for teams of all sizes, but probably smaller teams (less than 30 people is ideal). Great mobile app too which makes it easy to access from anywhere.

Cons

Haven't used it in a large team but could see it getting a bit complicated with a lot of added users. The only other con is that there isn't a great system of notifying you if/when someone makes comments on or edits to your tasks or lists.

For what its meant to do, it is very effective. Other than wanting more options that work for projects and larger teams (due dates, timelines, initiatives, progress, etc.) it works well. I even use it to manage family stuff.

It simply does not scale for larger teams and project. Other than that, no cons.

I've been using Trello as my own personal productivity tool. I haven't used it in a team environment so I can't speak to that, but for personal project tracking and setting up milestones through the use of Kanban boards, Trello has been great. I tend to come up with various app ideas that I want to work on, I create a board for each and fill out all my TODOs and move them down the pipeline as I work on them. I love being able to manage and refer to my boards on the go from my phone and also online, when I'm sitting down at my laptop and actioning on those items

Pros

- Simple to use
- Keeps projects organized
- Easy to track progress
- Shared across desktop and mobile

My experience is extremely, overwhelmingly positive. I recommend it to anyone who has an issue with task management.

Trello has provided an ideal solution for communicating the state of projects within our company on two levels: (1) a company overview board to communicate the status and broad updates of all company projects, and well as (2) project specific boards allowing team member collaboration. Since implementing the use of Trello, all project participants have a central place to locate resources, action items, communicate with other members of the team, and report personal progress. Project leads are able to watch boards giving them insight to everything that is happening within a project, while individual members can focus on only those items directly related to them.

Pros

Upon logging into Trello, you're immediately presented with a simple, easy-to-understand user interface. The decisions required of a user to make begin their work are precise and limited, making it extremely useful to the novice user. Once engaged the layout is intuitive providing easy access to the setting and items needed.

Cons

The only negative aspect my team members have experienced is difficulties in formatting text when posting updates or adding new cards. While Trello does offer codes for quickly formatting text, to those not posting on a regular basis, looking up formatting codes causes some frustrations. This is minor compared to the benefits received overall... but is something that does tend to come up from time to time.

Project management is more easier with Trello because it's very aesthetically pleasing in that it's easy to see plain and simple how a project moves along its course to different people and different departments. Makes inter-departmental work much easier.

Pros

I like the ability to have separate boards for different teams and have a good means of seeing the process of taking a project from its inception across the different departments to completion. Trello is very easy and user friendly to use.

Cons

I wish there was a bit better user experience within each card for more seamless duplication of a previous card or for quick saving text.
