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.

I honestly think they made the free version too useful. The use cases for the paid version seem very limited, in my opinion. Excellent free tool.

Pros

-Really easy to use and has a great user experience. Adding tasks and dragging between boards is simple.
-Very easy to visualize where you are on a project.
-Fast. This tool doesn't take a lot of time to use effectively. Next to know learning curve.
-Love the notifications for approaching due dates.

Cons

-Project templates could be better
-Easy to see the status of an individual project, but not so much the status of projects from a large team.

Pros

Horizontal orientation creates a timeline for your tasks, creating your history as well as forecasting your future. Great for small teams or individuals who need to track their progress or for project management.

Cons

Not so good for larger projects or larger teams. Collaboration is minimal. Sometimes I wish my screen was wider to fit all the columns.

I prefer this Task Management software over Evernote and TODOIST. Its a cleaner layout, simple to add, archive and delete tasks and I can manage multiple projects on both a work and personal front without having to switch apps

Pros

The ability to segment core task groups and then set up sub groups of those tasks is a huge plus over other task management apps. I use this for personal and work projects and love that I can manage both from the same app. The User Interface is much more attractive than TODIST and similar apps.

Cons

I would prefer that you be able to expand the list items in the main dashboard view which would enable me to better see the next task I need to perform. While each list item does show the title I wish it displayed 1-2 lines of the last activity which would remind me of the next task without having to fully open the item. I also wish that there was a "summary view" that showed all of your cards

I recommend this tool widely. It has helped me a lot for the work at a distance and in the labor exchange with people from other countries

Pros


I like how easy it is to use it, the possibility of having the information at hand thanks to the mobile phone app, also being able to share with other users linked to activities or projects.

Cons

Certainly there is something that I dislike about this application, which sometimes gives me annoyance has to do more with connection problems than with the software.

I love that you can change the background image. You have everything in one place. Along with my email, it's open all day!
I need to learn all of the shortcuts for the text (bold, italics, etc.) But I love it and recommend it to everyone!

Pros

I use Trello daily to keep track of projects and credentials for clients that I work with. I love that I can create a board and share it with a new client. It immediately shows a level of professionalism and also makes them feel like I'm not hiding anything, as all of my notes are there. You can access it from your smart phone - very handy!

Cons

I feel like there's a lot of space between the comments, so you have to scroll a lot to see everything, but that's not a huge problem. I learned to edit comments instead of adding a new comment.

It's like a virtual board filled with sticky notes, in which you can place cards and add all kinds of things to them, like notes, files, images and everything you want, plus you can share it with your colleagues or your friends.

Good tool for side collaborate tasks such as hack days for developers, teams that need to build projects or split responsibilities at work and more. I love the cross platform desktop website and app + widget support on Android.

Not much on the cons section other than you need to be logged in to see your board. Trello should integrate more notifications utility on email.

Was able to work with a new vendor and have a unified and free space to effectively communicate better than email.

Pros

There are tons of integrations ready to help you use the platform the way that you want/need it to be used, rather than having to necessarily learn another 'whiteboard' style program.
The organization is very in line with modern project management styles like agile and scrum.
It's great being able to unite different users from different companies and having a single space all with the same tools to effectively communicate.

Cons

You do have to buy in if you want to use more than 1 (or 2?) integrations, but they've got to make their money somewhere.

As a strong plus, Trello has many plugins as well, which helps to extend the functionality if needed!

When the project growth, it's hard to keep all the project in the actual state. It requires written protocols and instructions how we're using Trello in this project. There's few process automation, compared to JIRA.
