Trello

Visual collaboration tool for shared project perspectives

4.5/5 (13697 reviews)

Trello Overview

Spreadsheets, emails, and never-ending notifications are major teamwork blockers that affect today’s business teams—no matter their size. Project assignments, tasks, and daily to-do’s get lost, transparency gets trumped, and people lose productivity in the shuffle. Not only do teams need to manage this constant overflow, but they also need to build projects, track progress, and achieve major business goals. What’s needed is a clear view of the entire process to keep everyone on the same page.

Introducing Trello: A visual collaboration tool that creates a shared perspective for your team on any project in a fun, flexible, and rewarding way.

* Trello is for Everyone *
From sales and marketing to HR and operations, teams can design and customize Trello to fit their unique needs and work styles. And with over 100+ integrations with other key tools like Google Drive, Slack, Jira and more, Trello is a living, breathing project hub of cross-team collaboration no matter where your work needs to happen.

* Intuitively Simple *
Go from idea to action in seconds: Trello’s core features are as relatable is organizing sticky notes on a wall. There’s no cumbersome onboarding process to get started, so getting group participation is easy. Log in, join a team and see progress across all the team’s projects right away.

* Take the Work Out of Work *
Trello brings joy to teamwork by making it transparent and easily shareable across boards and teams. Users are empowered to make Trello their own (and have fun while doing it!) with features like board backgrounds, emoji reactions, and stickers.

Ultimate multi-team work and work-flow tracking

Used Daily for 1+ year

Review Source: Capterra

We started out using trello on their free plan for a single project as an experiment.

This is how we've evaluated ticketing and tracking systems in past, but trello became so popular so quickly in 6 months we used it almost everywhere.

It's UX is so well-designed that it enhanced our work productivity more than custom-reinforcement tools that had been built for other tracking systems. It works great for individual and team projects, and allows both mixing of teams and seperate teams as case may be. It has good security and notification, and it very reasonably priced. It has so many integrations (they have different word for integrations, i forget it something like buttons), there are constantly more things we could be doing with it. Butler plugin is particularly useful- again this does things that we have had to automate internally with other work tracking systems.

The API we've started using extensively in the past 6 months, it's much easier than many vendors APIs and we've used it for everything from quick regular reports to automated notification, to management-like functions. Again some of these things we've done in other systems, but the card concepts are so well implemented they just work better and are more clearly to implement and have the eventual implementation very closely match the vision.

Pros

Beyond easy to use- it's actually fun to use, people want to move work through.
By embracing kanban it also encourages constant workflow.
The integrations it has are numerous and awesome.
The API is very flexiable and we use it extensively.

Cons

Not too much.
There are some annoyances like it doesn't support all of Markdown, which makes it harder to format things.
It's a bit tricky to apply same operation to multiple cards, without using the API.
This creates extra work, but once you know it you can frequently control it.
Mostly rare annonyances, some feature that isn't there yet.

This is an excellent software. A little difficult at the first but once you get used to it. It is easy and reliable.

Pros

This product is very useful for the users who want to organize their team working. The schedule and the team meetings. The user who are planning to organize sprint should use this software as it is very useful for sprint planning. I used it as Scrum Master to design product backlog

Cons

It is little hard to get used to when we first started using this software and it is also tricky when we use it with other applications.

Trello Does It Better

Used Weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed on 2019/08/28
Review Source: Capterra

I've used Trello for more than two years. One of the nicest things about Trello is it is super easy to learn and begin using. There's very little in the way of a learning curve. The work space is clean and uncluttered, even if you create multiple cards. Another great feature is the ability to drag and drop cards from one board to another. This is very useful if you decide to create a board such as COMPLETED TASKS.

Pros

Trello is an excellent project management platform, also known as collaboration software. It is especially useful if you have multiple projects with numerous to-do items. Here's why: Trello uses boards. Think of boards as digital notecards. You can create a separate board for every high-level project. For example, I created a board named MARKETING 2019 to manage my marketing tasks for the year. Within this board, Trello enables me to attach cards. Each card is named for a specific task. So, I have cards for Trade Shows, Brochure Development, etc. Each card can have tasks assigned to it. So I can, for example, list all of my trade shows on the Trade Shows card. I can further list more granular tasks such as "Develop bannerstands" or "Reserve booth." Best of all, deadlines for all tasks can be added via a calendar feature, and it's easy to assign tasks to anyone who has been added as a user or admin.

Cons

There is little not to like. The application works flawlessly in this reviewer's opinion. It's super-easy to modify boards, cards, and tasks. The only shortcoming I can think of is there seems to be no way to export your data to Excel, which could prove useful for some. For me, it's not an issue.

Clean, Beautiful Workflows for Organized Pros

Used Daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed on 2019/08/24
Review Source: Capterra

I am incredibly impressed with Trello and refer everyone I know who needs a team collaboration platform. Trello offers everything I need to organize my current and future projects quickly and efficiently. Many thanks to the developers for delivering a world class product with excellent customer service.

Pros

I wish I knew about Trello WAY sooner. It has improved my workflow and increased my productivity tenfold! You can add columns for categories like "To Do, Doing, Waiting on Feedback, Done, etc", add labels for color coding your cards, and add team members to individual cards. Your members will stay updated on any activity via email updates if desired so you never miss an update. You can easily add images and files directly to your team mates where they can comment, suggest edits, and have a database of files to refer back to if needed.

Cons

I would enjoy having the option to send an email directly to team members or groups on a specific card and the ability to view different boards at once.

Aside from those features there is nothing I would change! Trello is incredibly robust and offers everything I could ask for in terms of workflow organization and collaboration.

One word: Simple.

I use Trello to organizing my bugs and features. Its easy to put the most important things on the most important list, and put the most important card at the top of the list. This gives me clear direction. And I have access to Trello on my phone or any computer, so I can add cards no matter where I am when i think of something that needs added. I used to keep track of these things using an actual bug tracking software, but it just took too many steps to do the same thing I am doing with Trello. The best thing about Trello, it can be used for so many purposes, so once you get used to the software and create an account, you can easily just create another board for project management, feature requests, and just a plain old to-do list.

Pros

I love how simple it is. We use kanban boards at work through Microsoft TFS, but the complexity kills the mojo a bit. I use Trello as my bug tracker and development pipeline since I am just a single developer working on my projects, and it works perfect for that. Trello follows the KISS method (Keep It Simple Stupid), I can tell! Just create a board, add a list, and add cards. Very easy, very simple, and very customizable.

Cons

I wish there was a better search feature. When I search for text, I wish it would show me on the board where the result is... maybe when I click the result and scrolls to show me the card, so I can then drag it to another list if I want. Right now the search result show me the card and hide all the others, but by doing that I cant drag to reorder it.
