Great for Project Management, Great for take notes, Great for everithing

What do you like best?

Trello is one of the most powerful software you could use, and it's power comes from it's flexibility. You can do anything you want from taking notes and managing travels, to project management. You can keep track of your tasks, change them from the states "to do" , "doing", "wating", "done", among others you want or need. You can have due dates, so you know when the task is supposed to be finished. And if that is not all, Trello has great integrations.

What do you dislike?

Trello has a great power, but as someone said, "A great power comes with a great responsibility". So you have to make and establish an order so you don't lose yourself in the hundreds of tasks you could create. That said and you have to establish some rules with your team, so the boards keep it's flow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Trello has a lot of flexibility so you have to keep it at order so it would not become caos. In order to do that, we create some lists to take control of our tasks:

- "Backlog", so we keep track of our major tasks or user histories.

- "To do", where the minor tasks are waiting to be started.

- "Doing", so we can know who is doing what on what moment.

- "Waiting", if there is anything that needs to be done in order to finish these tasks.

- "Done", where all finished tasks are, we recommend to separate the done lists between periods of time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trello is our project management software, so we have several boards, one or two for each project so we can see, the project development, and so we can see, how many tasks have been finished, how many are waiting for something and how many have to be done.

Best kanban board manager ever !

What do you like best?

Ease of use, the simplicity it has but the customizability it offers with power-ups and other tools.

You can't go wrong with Trello for small teams and for bigger teams!

Even the free version is really great, you dont really need the paid version until you require bigger teams or more power ups, which are essentially plugins or add ons you can add to your Trello boards to enhance your workflow, connect with other service and make the best out of your Trello experience. I would definitively recommend it to anyone looking for a good free project management app!

What do you dislike?

The fact that you choose how the boards are laid out. When you have a bunch of lists, you have to scroll from left to right, even on mobile ! Kinda annoying, which you could choose wether or not you want them stacked vertically or horizontally (i know vertical does not make sense for a kanban board, but it makes sense on mobile !

Recommendations to others considering the product

It can def be used for bigger projects, but it should be separated per teams and not to a whole entreprise as it can get cluttered really quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing tasks, releases and milestones. I used and use it for smaller projects and personal projects. It makes managing tasks and goals to reach a pleasure to use on smaller projects.

What Task Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Fully flexible management tool, best parts available for free.

What do you like best?

Trello has great, simple visual design, making it easy to get into for first-time users. It can be used for all kinds of projects, from enterprise to personal – you're limited only by your imagination. Trello encourages experimentation and often delivers on user intention. Drag and drop interactivity is great. Fully supported by Atlassian, which acquired this great product after years of fanbase love from it's creators, Fog Creek Software.

What do you dislike?

I wish the calendar was supported at the free level, but you can invite other people to collaborate and earn Trello Gold to boost your add-ons. Really, I have no complaints, especially as this is a free product. Note that your Trello boards with which you used your Gold add-on boost will continue to have an integrated calendar even after your Gold term expires – another kindness from the software creators.

Recommendations to others considering the product

After you've looked around at other project management software, give Trello a try and see if it suits your needs. I've found it can suit almost any need! It purposely keeps things simple so you can focus on your goals – and Trello will help you zone in on those goals with it's flexibility to handle any kind of planning. Also check out their blog for great articles and tips.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've used Trello to organize personal vacations, small business projects, website development, and more. You can add photos and documents to your cards; everyone I've invited to collaborate on a Trello board has seen its benefits and enthusiastically embraced its utility. It's great for keeping all documents and plans in one place.

Surface and organise work quickly

What do you like best?

Trello is FREE and super easy to use - so you can start organizing your work quickly and easily without any laborious training. It's also easy to share your work with others and access it from any device - no matter where you are. There is plenty of design features that make standard work lists/tasks easier to digest visually with multi-colored labels, images, checklists and stickers.

What do you dislike?

If you don't think through the structure of your project boards, they can get unwieldy very quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great solution for start-ups or SMBs. Just give it a go and see for yourself - it's FREE

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to surface and visualize information quickly and easily across teams is very useful. We started using it to manage the work within our marketing team. But have also used it for broader company-wide projects like onboardng new team members. We're a relatively small company - so the biggest benefit for us right now is cost-savings.

Great organization software for those that don't want to spend time organizing.

What do you like best?

Trello allows a team to have really simple project management without a significant time investment. This is the first project management software we used as an entire company and we have very few complaints from the employees. Cloud version works great. Trello also has amazing API support, so it is very easy to integrate it into existing internal software our company uses.

What do you dislike?

Desktop client uses a ton of ram for the application's purpose. While trello is great for day-to-day responsbilities and managing smaller projects, it can feel like there's too much going on if you are using it to manage very large projects. Their iOS app can be very slow and buggy at times, especially if you are active on multiple boards.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Trello has a freemium business model which is great, makes trying it out relatively safe.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying to stay organized at a small company working on many projects as once. Before using Trello we primarily used a collection of whiteboards and sticky notes to keep track of projects. Trello has significantly reduced issues surrounding around communication and responsibilities. It allows us to have a clear overview of each day's goals.

Great Way to Stay Organized During Group Projects

What do you like best?

This platform is extremely easy to setup and use. There have been a lot of new integrations and feature releases over the past year+ which has made it much more usable. The newer integrations with my email client and a PC-based app has made it even easier to use.

What do you dislike?

The overall interface still feels clunky at times. While using multiple boards is great, any overlap makes this platform feel a bit heavy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The key to getting the most out of Trello is knowing how you want to use it and what goals you want to accomplish with it. I used it for a quite a while before I sat down and created an effective strategy for integrating it effectively. It is ideal for onboarding and group projects. While I also use it as a general to-do/task manager, there are still some features needed to completely eliminate my other task manager.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Trello to train/track freelancers, manage group projects, and client onboarding.
