  • Simple Collaboration

    Trello offers a way to very quickly brainstorm and breakdown a project involving a small team. It's clean interface, easily web/mobile accessible, and simple features make it easy to get started.

    Pros : Very visual and basic enough for anyone to understand. Simple but useful organizational project management features.

    Cons : Limited use of advanced features such as control or administrations. Can get messy with larger teams or projects, but that's not really the intended use.

    Useful task board app but needs a disciplined process of your own to really get value

    Trello is very visual and easy to use. If you can organise things into task lists, and you can drag-and-drop, then you can use Trello. However, as an experienced project manager, I have some difficulties with Trello. For one, it doesn't enforce setting dates or things like that, and you need to use extensions if you want to use scrum-like things such as effort. To get the most out of Trello you really need a disciplined process of your own that you follow, because Trello will provide a board but won't help you enforce your process. It's really easy to just make a mess and then lose interest. If you want to have other people from your organisation use Trello they'll need to sign up for it too. To its credit, you can do a lot with Trello for free. I don't actually see the paid features as being very useful - I got free Trello gold for six months and didn't find anything in it I needed.

    Pros : Free version does all you need, forever Super easy to use Mobile versions for smartphone/tablet Can include rich media Can make checklists very easily

    Cons : No rules to enforce dates, etc. Need third-party extensions to add features you'd think would be standard No easy way of exporting/printing Can't auto consolidate checklists within the same task Changelog notes on mobile apps are really weird

    Downloaded and Installed

    I haven't had much of a chance to play with Trello yet, we've only just added it to our toolbox. But all of the office employees have run the programs and we've begun to set up projects and I can see that this will be very valuable to our team.

    Pros : Quick easy set up, great interface.

    Cons : I don't have any to share yet as I don't have quite enough experience with Trello yet.

  • Trello from an HR / business standpoint

    Trello Use Cases and Deployment ScopeTrello is used at all levels, and in numerous departments at my company.  By allowing multiple users to share boards with each other - in real time, project tasks and meeting agendas can be continually updated.   Some departments manage their staff meeting agendas with Trello; others use it for their check lists (think onboarding new employees or project tasks).  I've also seen it manage special (non business) projects - like managing volunteers, supplies, and time slots for an extracurricular activity. 

    Pros : Real Time Updates - All viewers of a board are able to get updates when a change is made. Very helpful if a meeting agenda changes last minute - or a team member completes a project task that you were just about to dive into.Insert Files - its so easy to insert external files (Word Docs / PDFs / Excel; etc) into a Trello board.Ease of Use- since Trello is used so widely across my company, being easy to use / understand is critical. We have to train individuals on numerous things, but for T

    Cons : Trello Gold - Doesnt seem to bring any value to me (and maybe I am missing something big here - but... ) Adding stickers or changing backgrounds is not of importance to me... Even if I am in it every day.

    Trello: good for small agile teams

    Trello Use Cases and Deployment ScopeTrello is being used by developers, QA and IT managers internal to the software group only.

    Pros : Helps track work items well and break them up ad-hocTrack estimatesTo Do lists

    Cons : End to end traceability is not good compared to paid products such as TFS.Native GitHub integration

    I couldn't function without my Trello boards

    Trello Use Cases and Deployment ScopeTrello is used to keep track of everyone's assigned tasks for the week. It's the best way to keep track of what you have done and what you have yet to do each day. When you have a lot of little tasks to do for multiple clients, it's easy to forget where you're at in your workload. But seeing each card in front of you, being able to arrange them however you want them, and moving them off The List as the task is completed helps tremendously in making sure you don't miss anything.

    Pros : OrganizationCommunicationCollaborationNotifications

  • Trello is a fun and highly visual online tool that helps teams collaborate and keep track of projects using kanban-style management. You can bend this flexible tool to your will, but it's less powerful than other project management applications.

  • What can I say? It’s hard to find much fault with Trello. This software is characterized by elegance, simplicity, and user-friendliness. It would be difficult to find a basic project management solution with a more intuitive, visually-appealing design. And in terms of sheer adoptability – of getting your employees to actually use a software-based task management tool – Trello scores extremely high.

  • Compared to more expensive cloud-based project management tools, Trello is simple to use and most businesses will find the free account is good enough

  • If you want to separate your high-level planning from your nitty-gritty details, then yes, Trello is a great product. Just keep in mind that it absolutely should not be your only project management tool; it isn't a complete solution, so you'll need something else to manage your day-to-day tasks.

  • Awesome for team collaboration and granular projects

    What do you like best?

    There are so many features with Trello! I especially like the thought given to organization.... You can keep it pretty simple or get really detailed. Each card has lots of options to track what you're doing. Title, description, comments, colored tags, member assignments, and checklists are just a few of the primary options you have to keep everything on track.

    It's also wonderfully visual, which is how I relate and manage tasks. User managed colored labels, member pictures, and cover images are so helpful to quickly assess your tasks.

    What do you dislike?

    Trello isn't right for me in every circumstance. I've found that I needed an alternative for more simple daily tasks. The things I love for more detailed projects and collaboration just make using Trello too complicated for a simple checklist.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    I really recommend Trello for team collaboration and internal projects. For me it doesn't fit my needs for more simple to-do's. It's just too granular and I end up having to double efforts.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Team collaboration! Enough said?? We use Trello for weekly meeting organization, internal projects, and self-organization. For me, the best benefit is such simple team collaboration for these tasks.

    Great simple board software. Team loves it!

    What do you like best?

    First of all let me say it's good enough to use personally as well as for work, almost everyone uses it for both! Team is great at keeping it up to date and feature-rich. It does everything we want it to! Basically an amazing virtual whiteboard for Scrum/Agile or even just for simpel to-dos in my life. I use it for everything from work to gift ideas and weekly to dos :)

    Love multiple boards and collaboration. For something so simple it has a lot of power. try it!!

    What do you dislike?

    Um... so many new features it's hard to keep up? Can I customize the look yet? Not much to dislike! With official apps out for android it's really fully-functioned. Could use some tracking integrations for git and bitbucket. It may do that already and I haven't found it!

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Try it! Free! Cheap! Get to know it. Ramp up is quick so you'll know. If you like whiteboards you'll like this!

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Keeping track of sprints originally but now it's really our general tracking and to-do tool alongside Jira. We use both due to Jira's bitbucket integration but prefer Trello!

    Trello: A Project Management System With Both a Simple UX and Robust Functionality

    What do you like best?

    Trello manages to expertly straddle the line between simplicity and functionality. The UX is very intuitive which is particularly valuable when working with teams as very little training is needed to get new users comfortable with the system. A few other aspects of Trello I appreciate:

    - Trello is very actively developed with key new features being added all the time.

    - Trello works just as well on a mobile device (whether through the app or browser) as it does on a laptop/desktop

    - Trello is highly versatile and can be used for both group and individual projects

    What do you dislike?

    The main drawback of Trello at the moment is that it cannot be used offline. This typically is not a problem but it makes referring to (let alone editing) a Trello board during flights all but impossible. Additionally, Trello is available in a limited number of languages which limits its utility for multi-linguistic teams.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Don't let the simple UI fool you; Trello is actually a very robust project management system. The Trello Resources and Trello Development Boards run by Trello Inc. are excellent resources if you are looking to take advantage of all of the system's advanced features.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    I have used Trello for a number of projects over the last 4 years. In my view, it excels the most when working with a small team of people. For example, I am currently using Trello with one other colleague to track our progress making arrangements for the study abroad programs we develop (I work at a university). Additionally, we use Trello boards to post key pieces of info we need to share (forms, login info etc.). With both use cases, we are able to focus all of our energy on on our work instead of on sending countless emails back and forth. Additionally, keeping track of tasks on Trello ensures that there is a record of everything that is done (and when, by whom etc.).

  • For small businesses looking for an easy way to streamline their workflow or simply busy family with a lot on their plate, Trello is an excellent way to keep everything in order.

  • Trello is an intuitive management tool that can be used for projects of all sorts. It really makes you wonder how no one came up with something this simple before. And the scary thing is Trello is going to get even better as time goes by. There's also an iPhone app (Android is in the works). And as of this writing,

  • Trello.com is a helpful tool for anyone working on a project. Teams can really appreciate the real time updates and easy access that allows them to share files and content with one another. Individuals can also plan and complete a project using Trello. The application is very user friendly and offers immediate updates as the user edits their cards in their browser. Mobile versions are also planned for the near future.
