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

Pros

I love the fact that the tool can have it on any device for free, connecting with all the tools I use in an organized and synchronized way, reminding me of even the activities that I need to do

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).

Cons

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.

The variety of views (Kanban, Calendar, etc.) is very useful. It is super easy to navigate, create and assign tasks. Zenkit provides a great deal of flexibility to organize projects from small to complex.

Cons

There is not much negative to say about Zenkit. A minor improvement would be the ability to choose theme background color with a color wheel.

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.

Some features are hidden and you have to watch some of the tutorials to get into all features - or ask the very good support.

The Kanban can be adjusted very flexibly. It is very important for me that I can adjust the size of the information displayed for each story.

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.

Cons

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.

Pros

Zenkit is an easy-to-use project management tool that works on different devices and in your web browser. It is perfect to organize a team. You can use it to keep a scrum/kanban board. Moreover, you can use the so-called collections to gather all kinds of data that are important for your team and display and filter this data. The "my team"-tool gives you an overview of the data/tasks that are assigned to you.

Cons

In the "my team" view I would appreciate the possibility to filter for specific collections or to change the order in which the collections are arranged. Additionally, it would be nice to filter for specific labels/stages in the "my team" view.

Flexible views give me everything I need to organize my tasks, projects, goals, and teams. Having one central location for all this information and being able to quickly adapt it to meet my current needs puts Zenkit in a class of its own.

Pros

Zenkit has quickly become my favorite task and project management app. It combines the strength of several different utilities into one incredibly convenient package.

One of the key concepts that sets Zenkit apart is the ability to change views. Go from viewing tasks in standard "To Do" lists to a two-level Kanban (Trello-style) board with a single click. Feel like laying the items out in a mind map? One more click away. Need to batch update items or schedule them on a calendar? Zenkit can do that too with additional views.

As you dig deeper, you find even more functionality. Link collections together to plan projects, track inventory, or follow sales leads. This is honestly where it leaves other systems in the dust. I have the ability to set up projects, connect them to weekly priorities, and then assign the next actions on a master task collection and easily switch between them all.

I really can't say enough about this incredible piece of software!

Cons

As a non-profit, I would love to have the ability to add more people to our team without paying more, but that is more about me being cheap than about the software or pricing itself.
