    I am very impressed with this software. I used to use trello for project management but when I found this software, it was a game changer. Trello lacks so many features that is where Zenkit fills in.

    Pros

    Very smooth and intuitive.
    Perfect for developers.
    The mindmap feature is amazing

    Cons

    The Only thing I miss in zenkit is the lack of native mobile apps. Its only a web app.

    Pros

    Ease of use, number of features... and more are coming ! Zenkit made me settle for managing my tasks, after tryin a lot of apps.
    Simple to use, great support, great ideas and very clean.
    The free version is more than enough for one person (up to 5 team members, though) and the paid version is very interesting in term of price and features.
    And it's still growing everyday.

    Cons

    Maybe improving the speed and the customization... And looking forward to the new features !!
    Other than that, it's all fine by me :)

    The best Kanban tool, but not only!

    Functionality
    Quality
    Support

    I use Zenkit everyday to manage the projects I'm working on (website development mainly). I can see at a glance what I have to do everyday and can also track time for each task, thanks to custom fields!

    Pros

    What I like the most with Zenkit is the ability to customize a board to your needs. The most interesting features to me are custom fields. If you use Zenkit as a project management tool, you can add fields for "estimated time" and "time spent" for every task.
    It combines very well with the "Views" feature. You don't have to stick with the Kanban view and can choose between Kanban, task list, table, calendar (useful with due dates on tasks) and even mind maps.

    Cons

    The free version of Zenkit may be enough to test the product, but once you have more than 5 members in your team, you have to upgrade your account to a premium plan.
    Anyway, once you'll discover Zenkit, you may want to support the team behind this awesome product!

    Easy team task assignments.

    Pros

    It is easy to use from day one, since most tools are structured very user friendly. I like the efficiency it provides for sharing information and tasks with my team.

    Cons

    I am still learning how use some of the tools in a more efficient way. Although I can find most tools I absolutely need to get the job done, some ways to get there are longer than I would like them to be, especially with repeat actions, like assigning tasks to my team. I would like to be able to create pre set groups to assignments, rather than assigning 29 persons individually.

    I am still struggling with getting all team members to use the software and respond on this platform. Breaking the habit of using just emails is difficult. I would like to provide some simple incentives for my team to respond on zenkit, rather than responding on email and letting me enter all information into zenkit.

    Gain of time for everyone. As it is really easy to use, we had no colleague reluctant to use it.

    Pros

    The agenda and tasks organisation from one presentation to an other are really useful ! We can still use it as a Trello and then have a clearer arrangement as a calendar. Using the french version, I can also say it is rare to have an app translated as Zenkit and made us choose it instead of an other app to organise our activity.

    Cons

    A shortcut from my Gmail box as Trello for Gmail could be a plus.
    I still use Trello with the IT team : they have lots on datas on Trello and are used to it and I can give them the infos from customers directely from my mailbox.

    We manage the work load in our team in zenkit on a two-week basis. This helps us organize, assign and rank the on-going tasks and always keep a good overview of what one is supposed to be doing, what others do, who might be able to help or who might need help, the overall progress, etc.

    Pros

    I like the many ways of displaying, organizing and sorting the different tasks. This is very helpful to get the exact overview you need at a time.
    Also, the search funtion is very efficient and finds tasks by any keywords, so it is easy to look up former Performances and what is currently going on.

    Cons

    At first, the whole programme seems overwhelming, and I think I still have not discovered nearly all features. But as soon as I dared using it, I managed to accustum myself quite quickly and also found the functions and Features needed for now.

    It has allowed me to deliver my work quickly, using different tools in one without losing any kind of information in the compilation process. I do not forget any activity

    Cons

    Although it is very good for daily use, visually it is very basic, it needs more color, stickers, icon among other things to make it more attractive and people use it more regularly

    I'm a big fan of how versatile the views are (for example, you can use a slider bar to choose how much detail to show in a kanban view).

    There seem to be a few technical glitches--sometimes the app takes a while to update or gets stuck on the loading screen. It'll also restart sometimes but then never load.

    Pros

    I found this software when searching for a simple web-based relational database to be shared between me and another academic researcher, we need to organize some research data for a digital humanities project. It meets that need, however, it's also much deeper than that. It has project management features (Kanban, Agile, simple checklists), calendars, basically a one-stop-shop for running a project, including hosting simple database needs (like an inventory), which I have never seen offered in any other project management app. It also has free, fully featured iOS apps, which I have really enjoyed using. I have never been able to access my database on my phone before! (Also an Android app, but I haven't used it.) A lot of bang for the buck here, and free to use at small levels!

    Cons

    It's ambitious and heavily featured, but probably due to that, still buggy. I have yet to get my imported research database fully working, although I've built a sample database from scratch that works. However, customer service is very responsive (especially considering I am not a paying customer yet) and have been upfront with the problems and their time line in correcting them, so I'm going to stick it out with them for a while longer.

    I use it mostly for kanban-style Scrum processes. It is a huge upgrade from Trello as it offers a lot more features to handle your data. This simplifies various processes since it removes the need to switch applications for different tasks and keeps everything neatly organized.

    I occasionally have issues that require to refresh or restart the web browser (Firefox), maybe even delete cookies to restore proper functionality. The software is also a bit slow overall. However, there is still a lot of development done so things are improving constantly!

    We implemented our Scrum process in Zenkit (after starting with paper cards on a board an then using Trello for a while). Furthermore, we plann ressources, tasks, ordering, business contacts etc. in Zenkit. It is great to have everything in a single tool

    Pros

    In Zenkit, I especially like:
    - the possibility to create different custom data fields, checklists, attach files etc.
    - the combination of different selectable views (Kanban, Table, ...)
    - the possibility to export data

    Cons

    - It might be useful to add attachments to individual comments (like in trello) instead all together at the top level of a card
    - Export/import functionality could be further extended to allow for easy data exchange between Zenkit and other programs

    Pros

    With Zenkit you can define different Collections and Teams for different purposes and adjust them precisely to their corresponding purpose.
    In every collection, you can design items exactly as you need them using different custom fields such as labels, dates, links, attachments. This allows usage of Zenkit for customer tables, scrum boards, simple to-do lists and much more.
    Different views (Kanban, table, ...) and filters allow for detailed control over your collections.

    Cons

    Sometimes, Zenkit is not able to save local changes on the server and you lose some of the applied changes.
    Linking items of different collections is unnecessarily complicated.

    I used Zenkit to manage my master thesis procedures and I imported my data from Trello into Zenkit in the middle of the project. It is really user-friendly. Kanban style, adding a customized field, tags and filters are helpful to perform a project and to sort the data at the end of the project.

    Cons

    Adding the titles and comments to the attached files or pictures make the documentation easier, which is impossible in Zenkit.
