Trello Review

5 2 months ago New

Comments: I love how visual Trello is. It's easy to see at a glance where I am at with all my projects and what needs my attention next.

Pros:

Trello is my preferred project management system, one that I use in my business as well as to manage my clients' projects. It's simple enough to use yet robust enough to handle high level of details.

Cons:

I haven't really explored the Butler function and automations enough so can't talk to that aspect of Trello.

Good for small projects - gets overloaded quickly with complex projects

3 2 months ago New

Comments: While it was wonderful to get started and easy to use with smaller scale projects, we quickly outgrew the platform and to switch to other tools like Asana.

Pros:

It was easy to get started and easy to visualize tasks all in one place without too much clicking or diving into numerous menus.

Cons:

After we had more tasks to complete and our software projects grew in size and scope there were so many boards everything became unreadable and became very disorganized.

A good task manager for small teams

4 3 months ago

Comments: I use Trello to manage the tasks of my part time workers, especially as we are working remotely. I am able to set up projects for the via cards and add any resource material they might need.

Pros:

I can use this to manage the task of several workers at the same time. Each of my employees have a board and I am able to add tasks to the board directly from my email. In that way, I am able to take things off of my to-do list because I know that the task is captured somewhere else and the job will be completed.

Cons:

I often have a difficult time building out a project in a way that makes sense to me. We use this much less for large project and much more for smaller individual tasks. I also wish there was a easier way of styling the cards. I have attempted to use the Trello code in the cards but unless you use them frequently, you have to relearn them all over each time.

Great for an Electronic To Do List

4 last month New

Comments: Definitely helps keep track of all my various lists of to dos, so it's great in that way! The free version is all I use and it is super useful to me.

Pros:

I love that I can make different boards to organize all of my various to dos. That way, visually I can see what projects need to be done and when. I also really love the deadlines you can set for yourself, and how it visually changes the look of the board, so that it stands out.

Cons:

The only cons for me really is that I know there are a lot more features to it that would probably improve my work flow even better, but it doesn't come naturally, really. It seems like I need to research more HOW to use all the processes available in it. I also don't really like that there isn't a "done" button, only "archive" and to be honest, I don't know what happens when they are archived.

A must-have for organizations who understand the power of Kanban

5 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Trello is a cornerstone tool in our organization. Nuff said.

Pros:

The visual management aspect of Trello is extremely compelling. Unlike a one-dimensional task list, Trello provides a robust array of tools that enables you to have a clear overview, while also allowing you to instantly drill down. You have a feeling that their developers are real people who are solving problems people have instead of thinking about cool functionality. Of course they have that too.

Cons:

There are some places where Trello is not as intuitive as it could be. I often find myself clicking on the wrong button or dropdown after using it for over 2 years-
