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.

Customer Support

Pros

I like that I can have personal and team lists. So it is very functional for my day to day. I can keep track of my job related and personal errands. I love that I can be in constant communication with my team.

Cons

I haven't found a way to delete forever. You can only archive stuff, and sometimes you want to delete forever a card, and you can't. So, what I do is to recycle them, so then I don't have an eternal list of cards.

Easy to use Task Manager

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A
Pros

It's really easy to create boards per project, a kanban-style board that categories are arranged left to right. A fun way to create task(s) that you can even choose your background color and by just double clicking the task, you can already edit it's description. and you just need to drag and drop to move the card onto another list.

Cons

I think there's some functionality that needed to change, like the delete function. You should click the archive button first for the delete button to appear. And I believe that the delete button must always shown, just add a confirmation dialog box to confirm if you really wanted to delete the card to avoid accidental deletion of card.

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.

Group to dos and tasks list without the sticky notes

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

My group and I are using Trello as our board for our startup. It's easy to access and we don't get to throw away sticky notes after we're done with it. It's also a really good way for us to see how many features we've finished and how many more do we need to do.

It's really just a minor thing, but maybe have a different way of showing which card owns which instead of a single letter/initial.

Pros

-Interface is neat
-It's easy to create tasks and move it around
-So thankful for the colored tags (made things looks much more organized)

Cons

Not really a con, since there could be multiple people using a board, some people have the same initial and it's a bit of a hassle to hover at the initial and wait for the name to pop up to know which owns which

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.

Overall not very impressed and don't think it is worth it. There are far better options out there.

Pros

In terms of simplicity it is very easy to learn no matter your skill level.

Cons

It is too basic; like musical chairs for post-it notes. Organizing tasks is not effective in terms of deadlines, assignments, notes, or anything of that sort. If you are using it as a daily to do list personally, sure it works well. But beyond that, avoid it. Far better options on the market.

Trello is incredibly easy to use and versatile, especially for a free product. It has a much lower barrier to entry as compared to all other project management software.

Great, an important tool in my day to day! and free - what better?

Pros

Shear simplicity! implementing the kanban/post-it method of managing tasks by moving them between columns according to their state.
You get to define the tasks, the states and how to move (because you can just drag a task anywhere).
For my personal tasks this is a life saver - because I'm very easily distracted, so having a very simple way of just adding a new task without too much needed is ideal, I can get to organizing (or just doing it) at any point. if something is time critical - just add a reminder.

Cons

I don't know how to make the same simple idea apply to complex projects - once something grows beyond an immediate small team of people - Trello becomes a little lost. Which is probably a good thing if you realize starting out, and not after trying to make it work. Just use something else - Jira, Rally, whatever.

You can comment on each post, have a large team working on the same projects, and link to Google Suite, which is a HUGE plus!

Trello has helped to work with clients in a way that makes it easy for them to see the progress we've made on their projects and where we are within the project scope. It also helps with communication!

Pros

I like that Trello makes it easy to start tasks and share with your team or with your clients. The visual aspect of the software helps to make it quick and easy to see where projects are in their phases and what needs to be done.

Cons

I do feel that Trello is not very intuitive and you have to spend some time with it to make sure that you know what you're doing and feel comfortable.
