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.

Supported Operating System(s):
Web browser (OS agnostic)

    Use Trello to Keep Track of Tasks

    N/A

    I use Trello to keep both myself and team members on track for the projects that we work on. Since not all of us are in the same office at the same time, it is helpful to see who is working on what, as well as the overall project implementation plan laid out in a graphic format. It also ends up being a great tool to use as a repository of information related to specific projects or project examples.

    Pros

    I like Trello's way of organizing tasks and To-Do lists in a tile layout. Each project has a column and tasks can be placed underneath each project as steps to complete the project. I also really like that multiple users can be active on each board so each team member knows their tasks and due dates. It's a great tool for keeping team members on task and improving productivity.

    Cons

    I don't like that it isn't as prominent in my workspace as it could be. Users have to keep the browser tab open to see what tasks are coming up. Having a small pop-up window or application that could embed in the desktop and send notifications would be more helpful for me.

    I use Trello to add tickets to the queue for our website developer. It is fairly simple to use for what I need. I am not familiar with any other ticketing system besides Jira, nor am I familiar with pricing.

    Pros

    Trello is a collaborative working platform for remote or out of office workers, principally, which allows you to keep track of work done by collaborators using deadlines, timeframes with easy review of deliveries and changes.

    Cons

    The number of options, sub folders, sub menus and followup characteristics can be very overwhelming. Trello sends almost daily emails to let you know about a new or hidden feature that you probably won't need.

    A cool task manager, but you need to be able to use it

    Pros

    It turned out that this is an excellent task manager, only you need to learn how to use it and properly configure it for yourself. For example, it's easier to work with hot keys, having mastered which I save time. Also, the availability of a mobile version helps, so I, even on a business trip, can monitor the performance of all the works and take part in the discussion of projects.

    Cons

    Automated tasks in projects are too few, I would like some functions to work that way. In addition, the mobile version is not very convenient, especially if your device has a too small screen.

    Trello is THE tool to help keep our team organized with our actionable items while building out our product.

    Pros

    Being a small company working on app development for one of our products, Trello makes task organization incredibly simple for our team. What needs to be done, What needs review, and (the best) What's been completed. It's a fantastic visual tool to help keep my development team focused.

    Cons

    Out of the gate, it can be a little confusing in regards to the UI, but with a little tinkering and just clicking around, you and your team will get the hang of it pretty quickly.

    I love the user experience and the ease of making changes. I use Trello for my Bucket List so I can track what I have already accomplished with pictures/dates/etc as well look at what goals I want to achieve. It's been the perfect digital option!

    Cons

    It can get quite overwhelming depending on how much I want to include in each card and it's up to me to be creative to figure out how to make it look the best. I also don't love the way each individual card looks when you open it up. And I wish there were more colours for tags.

    Every startup up I've worked at or consulted for loves Trello and uses it actively. It's dead-simple to set up and maintain. There's no learning curve, and the keyboard shortcuts make navigating Trello quick and efficient. I think Trello's keyboard shortcuts make Trello a 11/10. It's that easy to use and setup. I would highly recommend to any startup team that's on a budget to look at Trello. It's free. It's easy. And it works. Push/Email notifications are a plus too.

    Pros

    I give Trello 10/10 in areas such as: ease of use, simplicity, and automation/integrations. Trello is widely used for Kanban, todo lists, and roadmaps, and note taking. I love how easy it was to set up and to use. Most integrations come from Zapier, which connects to a thousand different things, so Trello is integrated and a core piece of software in my day to day life. The whole team loves Trello and it's our go to for creating new boards/tasks for our operations.

    Cons

    Trello is simple to use and great, I don't have any cons using the software. It's free, so there's really no entry to barrier and there's absolutely no learning curve to using boards and setting up shop.

    We use it at my church.

    Pros

    My church uses this to keep track of all the projects we have a a volunteer group in Information Technology. It is the largest church in North America, so you can imagine the projects need attention. Volunteers can assign themselves to groups to assist. It really is a handy project management tool.

    Cons

    It can get a little scattered at times, and can be confusing when looking at a massive amount of projects.

    It was just okay. I would definitely use something else if I had a choice, but It was just used by the team I was on

    Pros

    I liked how I was about to collaborate with others on my team. That was helpful.

    Cons

    The way it is organized is off-putting and it was not easy to use for me. I didn’t like the side to side and not being able to see everything. I kept forgetting things on my to-do list because it was hidden on the side.

    Trello has proven to be very useful for my team as it helped us organise our task list and track progress. The free version itself gives a lot of options to get daily activities organised, paid enterprise has many features.

    I haven’t come across anything specific that I didn’t like, however, I feel the boards can have more shortcuts.

    I had searched around for a while for a decent application that could serve as a sort of workplace checklist and gave Trello a few weeks of testing. But in the end it served to be jsut another app that I have to open up to interact with. Thought there are some decent integrations out there for it, at the end of the day I opted to use the task tracking and checklist features of software I was already using.

    Pros

    The user interface is quite nice and modern.

    Using Trello is quite intuitive and easy to understand.

    The mobile app for Android works great.

    Cons

    Trello essentially does one job well, but that one job is naturally done in many other programs and platforms.

    The initial novelty was quite nice, but once it wore off, that was it, I had no further interest or use for it.
