    Trello is free and easy to use. It allows you to create workspaces and boards to manage your daily work, projects, collaborative tasks, etc., in a simplified manner. With the help of cards, Trello helps you prioritize and order your work to have improved productivity and remove any miscommunication. You can have up to 1000 users per board, so you're never going to run out of space for teammates to invite to participate in your board and update their contributions. Using Trello, users can work at any time as the cards convey progress and timely completion before the assigned deadlines. Trello's deadlines and alerts are excellent and notify you of the work that needs to be done sooner. If there are multiple unassigned tasks, any user can undertake any of them and add their name to it to let everyone know they're working on them. You can attach images to the cards, share files, and use the Trello chat to share quick messages. One of the best advantages of Trello is its seamless integration with many significant platforms that promote productivity, such as Zoom, Dropbox, etc. The dedicated desktop application contains UX problems, so it's advised to use the browser application for a bug-free experience. Trello solves the problem of disorganization in our projects and group discussions. We used Zoom and other chat platforms to convey project progress and create lists of what needed to be done. But this information always got lost in the shuffle as we exchanged hundreds of messages daily in our meeting room. Trello posed an excellent solution since it's an external application that provides more management features than Zoom could. In many ways, Trello became our go-to for our monthly projects and assigned services for our team. Staying alert of deadlines, knowing who's working on what, and updating progress have never been easier than after we started using Trello. Although we've never missed our deadlines before, Trello has done a great job in relieving the anxiety of the deadlines as we can have a better vision of how and when we can complete the projects. Trello has downloadable applications for many devices, so we can constantly track projects and boards to see if any updates are made. This is especially helpful as some members of our team work night shifts, so even after our shift is over, we can use the mobile app to see what's new.

    The "Kanban" layout (like papers in a row on a board) will do current projects and work visible and manageable. Also, Trello has a ton of possible connections with other software to make your workflow a lot easier. Integrations like Google Drive, Google Calendar and more will help your boards to be powerful. And although I have not used the sharing/collaboration features a lot, I heard many good things about it, so that might be a future implementation for my business. Because it's easy to use, you can quickly create too many boards and lose track of everything. So, starting off with a basic plan on how and why you want to use Trello is a great idea. And this is not all Trello's fault, but it is something that I run into after using it for a few weeks. If you are looking for a great way to organize your workflow and business projects, Trello is the tool you need. It is free, gives you a lot of valuable integrations with other software to make your work a lot easier. If setup correctly, it can be the only tool in your business project management to use. The addition of collaborations/sharing makes it great for small teams too! You can create a better overview of the work that needs to be done within my business. From client work, general business project overviews to organizing files and uploads. I also use it for my music projects. Because Trello gives you the opportunity to upload files up to 10MB per file, I can collect my upcoming albums with song layouts and previews. Very good and it saves a ton of time in the distribution process.

    1. I enjoyed the layout and arrangement. 2.I liked how easy it was for people to share the learning material. 3. I enjoyed how one could incorporate video links in the cards. 4. I loved how simple it was to create an account with them 5. I liked how customizable the interface is. 6. I enjoyed how once you click an item, a larger list comes up showing what's in that list. 7. I like the wallpapers. 8. I like that you can add details to your own profile, including a picture. 9. I like how easy it is to create and customize a new board. 10. I like how you can quickly share a list with another person. 11. I liked the guide that is provided once you log in and click on the "i" in the top right-hand corner. 1. It was hard to understand at first and quite complex. 2. I disliked how much load time was experienced once the boards were a lot in a particular list. 3. I disliked how singing into my account was difficult after a prolonged time without using the software. You can definitely use Trello to inform fellow coworkers and to organize your work neatly. 1. We use it as a base for training. Clients post new information in form of lists and we check it out and learn. 2. During training, it served as a reference point for the things we needed to learn. 3. It serves as a reference point up till now and a place one can refresh their memory on information earlier shared and communicated.

    The UI is satisfying to use, in terms of animation and responsiveness. Clicks register readily, and visual representation of your actions is clear and immediate. There are few restrictions on what content you can include and attach (supports many file types). The tool is very customizable, and requires little setup or configuration to get started, so it's very much plug and play. There is incredibly little automation capability, and workflow is completely lacking. Pales in comparison to other automation- or workflow-oriented tools I've used and am trying to bring in-house. This leads to many reminder emails (manually sent) because Trello fails to do this automatically and efficiently. Our team constantly misses deadlines because of poor notification systems, unclear content attachments and edits, and confusion regarding how to navigate or download materials added to a task or card. Overall, while the tool is easy to use, understanding how to use it properly - and to enforce proper usage across the team - is a chore. Each person is left to use the tool with their own style and preferences, which then adds complexity when trying to accomplish group goals. If you're used to tracking your activities on sticky notes, this is great. If your team works well like that, great. But if you require any automation, any workflow, any triggers and notifications, then look elsewhere. The team is trying to solve Marketing content creation/production. I have heard of almost no benefits, rather than accountability, and the ability to point fingers at people when delays occur, saying "well it's in the Trello board." That's barely a benefit at all, and causes a lot of confusion and conflict.

    Trello helps track items on your to-do list, and perhaps track the stage of production they're in at the time. I work best with more automation for routine activities, and like more control over workflows, tasks, and event triggers; Trello just is not good with any of those things. If you need automation and workflow capabilities, I recommend you look elsewhere. If you just need to document what you're working on and are good about manually documenting/tracking things and their current status, you're probably ok to try this out. Right now, we're tracking activities people are working on, and it's only been good for documenting what people have on their plate. Trello is largely manual, with very few automation or workflow capabilities, and that's becoming more of an issue.

    Our team wasn't using any sort of task management prior, so starting on using Trello has helped us out a bit. Sharing lists can be difficult, and sharing them between users is a chore. The over UX isn't very enjoyable, it's non-intuitive and I found myself googling simple questions a lot more often than I should have been. Honestly look at other solutions as well, and consider the workflow of your team and make sure that everyone's on board with using task management software. It's tedious having to remind people to "Just check Trello" and having to show them how to do it time and time again It helped with task management, especially on projects that don't have clearly defined parameters.

    Google Docs is ok for sharing items/documents/files with your team, but the interface is clunky to me. It's hard to know right off which things are connected to what project and to each other. Also, assigning tasks to team members is not possible directly (not that I know of). Basecamp feels a lot BIGGER to me. Trello works well for my small business. Basecamp just feels like a more industrial / commercial option for larger organizations.
    Trello is well-suited for: Organizing a group of collaborators on a projectOrganizing multiple stages of a larger projectCatch-all for brainstorming individually or as a groupSharing to-do lists (with deadlines)Specifically, we've used Trello successfully with: Homeschooling curriculum coordinationSocial media and marketing campaigns for clientsGeneral workflow and to-do lists with service providers (contractors)"Brain dump" - just getting a lot of information out of my brain and on to paper for use later
    Trello is web-based. There's nothing to download or install. This makes it particularly easy for people across different organizations to access and use the program. Trello can be set to send notifications when changes are made to lists, cards, or boards. This makes it easy to keep up with progress on the projects. The user interface of Trello is easy to learn. Organizing information is simple in Trello. The use of Boards with cards, and cards with lists, makes the information easy to access and keep tidy. This is one thing we quite appreciate about Trello. Organizing feels very intuitive with the system Trello employs.
    Trello has the ability to modify formatting of information on the cards. However, it does not use a standard Visual (WYSIWYG) Editor. Rather, users must remember the shortcodes for each required format. This is not ideal. Trello allows a user to reply to another user on a list, with the use of 'tagging'. Currently, the tagging only shows the usernames, which is fine. Tagging that would translate into a user's REAL NAME might be nicer and easy to understand - especially if usernames are quite different from real names. Users can attach images to lists and cards on Trello. The images or other files are just attached to the card. It's not always clear what file is pertinent to which comments, though. If there were a way to attach an image as a comment or TO a comment, it would help the workflow.

    Redbooth is probably the most comparable product out there. I've reviewed this product and tested it against Trello. Redbooth is very robust with some additional very attractive features. It also integrates well with Google for business platforms and SharePoint. It works very much like Trello but with a lot of additional ways to report and track tasks. We chose Trello because it keeps everything simple and the price point was a better match for what we were looking for.
    Trello is: Best suited when you have the time/resources to build some business rules around it. It can become a free for all if not managed well. If managed and consistent it can really have a positive impact on task management and approval management within an organization.Best when integrated with other software. We have other software that deals with budget and timelines. This software is for the daily activities and communication.
    Little Training Needed - the software is simple to use and easy to navigate. Anyone can be added with no additional fees - you can invite as many external clients to the board as you like There is a lot of third party software that integrates well with Trello. You can view attachments without downloading documents. There are several browser plug ins that can enhance your experience with Trello. Email replies - For those that don't like to use the application, they can still be involved without going into Trello. When someone sends a note through Trello, they can reply via email.
    It is not a full Project Management application. But then again it is not meant to be. Most features that others would want in a full Project Management are provided by other service providers that integrate directly with Trello. Not much variety for Member Controls. For instance, I would like to add clients, allow them to comment on cards, but not create, move, or archive cards. Business Class does provide a 'read only' status. It's a 'blank slate.' Some may not like that there are no formal rules or guidelines on how to use it. Trello does provide some ideas for how others use it, but you are pretty much on your own (or need to do your own research) for how to best use it for your organization.

    Trello is really not like any of these product (Knowify, BaseCamp, Microsoft Project). It is most similar to BaseCamp, but even simpler. It is task-centric (BaseCamp is Project Centric), and so simple that it would not be in the same league as Project or Knowify, etc. But that is also its beauty and value -- nothing but what you need!
    Trello excels at helping small teams to coordinate many tasks. The more complex the tasks, the better. (see weaknesses -- this is not a full fledged project management tool with ERP functionality). It has flags, check lists, and email tracking that will make light work of keeping up on dozens (hundreds?) of issues at a glance. The software has easy-to-use color coding (labels) and good "Archive / Delete" functionality so that you can be rid of a task or list when its completed. I also really like the Google Chrome plug-in.
    Capturing To-Do items via email: An excellent feature that reduces your email load while capturing the key action items in a single spot for management. Templatizing complex tasks: Trello allows you to set up "Lists" that can be copied or used as a template. Make it once, use it ten times. Compartmentalizing Everything: Within the "Cards" on Trello, you can capture the entire discussion about that specific task (or sub-task), as well as attach files, add checklists and generally manage the basics of the task at hand. Teams: Trello is really good at helping you create and manage user roles and team memberships/authorities.
    Project Management --- Trello is a bit like "BaseCamp": Its beauty is that it is dead simple and very intuitive. If you're looking for Gantt charts and resource allocations, this is NOT your tool. Mobile App --- the Trello mobile app is really just a micro webpage.... which is a bit hard to use with fat fingers and a little screen. The functionality is fine -- its just the presentation that I have a hard time with. Nothing else.... I'm having a hard time criticizing Trello -- it is exactly what you'd expect.... and just 10% more. Simple, intuitive, easy...

    I was asked to use Trello to see if I like the way it is set up for project management. We are trying to evaluate what software best fits our needs for project management. Trello is being used in our operations department where we have multiple projects running. We wanted to use it as a place for managers and partners to be able to see where I am on the projects without having to physically check in. This removes a few communication problems by letting them see exactly what I am working on and where I am in that stage.
    I think Trello is a set above my notebook for OneNote. It is nice that I am able to share this with team members. It still doesn't feel like more than a digit to-do list. Most of this I can do by hand. If it isn't sending me reminder or notifications, then, it doesn't really add more value than paper and pencil. I like how clear it is in the layout. In being simple, maybe that is a weakness too.
    It is really great if you enjoy customizing your workspace. You can change the background. You are able to move the tiles around. You can have multiple lists. Everything can be organized on top of itself. Each tile is what I use to define a project. Then, within the tile, I create topics, which are considered "cards". The card houses my checklists and timelines. It is a pretty nice drop down way of understanding. You can add a description to the card. There can be additional comments made by other people. You may add a due date. You can extend the accessibility of your list to other people. I am able to add or remove someone from viewing. You share a link with them to see your board.
    This is a personal preference. The way you organize each tile is from left to right. I prefer when I can go up and down. You can't ever really delete something. You are able to archive or move. You may be able to delete something but I am pretty tech savvy and it shouldn't be this hard to sort out. You can't collapse it either. I don't think this is the best project management tool in regards to functionality. If I put a due date on something, I would like there to be an alert or reminder associated with it. I could be underutilizing the tool, but again, as a tech savvy person, it should be a little more obvious on how to use their features. They could go down the route of Salesforce and Nintex and put together tools that would help someone in their setup.

    Todoist is a good to-do list app but I found it a bit more confusing to use than Trello because it feels like it does too much. Wunderlist was great until Microsoft bought it and stopped providing support. I used it before I switched to Trello and it would easily compete with Trello if it had been allowed to continue to function as is. Trello is a combination of a todo list app and a project management app so it is like getting the best of both worlds.
    Trello is good for visual project management. People who need to keep track of tasks across multiple lists will find Trello very useful. It is also ideal for media, professional service personnel and people who consult.
    I like the card style design of Trello and it is very intuitive. It's visually appealing and there is a satisfying feeling to moving a card from one list to another. Other to-do apps and project management tools have adopted this feature but Trello still does it best. If there is a single feature that I would say Trello does well, it is the cards feature. The visual appeal may not be to everyone's liking but the technique of the cards is very pivotal to what Trello does. The PowerUps make Trello more useful. I like to use the card repeater power up for example, because I don't have to recreate tasks that may recur several times. In my opinion, this implementation of add ons has increased my usage of Trello and made me appreciate it even more. Trello's free version has a bit of functionality, it makes it hard to see why one would want to upgrade. Any tool that can do project management well and is mostly free is worth the price. Email notifications in Trello are helpful and not entirely overwhelming. They help to know when someone you may be collaborating with has commented on a card or task item.
    Trello does things well but I feel in some ways the tool is neglected. The limited number of PowerUps is a sign of this, and I wish there were more PowerUps. The process of setting up Trello can be overwhelming especially if you have not entirely bought into the kanban GTD methodology.

    They are both task managers, but Asana seemed less friendly to me than Trello. Your minimalist design is aesthetically more attractive, besides giving rise to a simpler and simpler interface to use. It is possible to add widgets to the home screen. These allow more flexibility to view information at once, without the need to open the application. There is an application available for tablets. This will provide a better user experience than using an application designed exclusively to be used on a phone
    Trello is ideal for small projects, with few people and as an internal tool of some departments of your company. It is less appropriate for bigger jobs, since it organizes them by independent boards, disconnected from each other. While you can assign a task to several people, when the team and projects grow, the boards play against us. For example, to assign a task it is necessary to first think about which board corresponds, look for it, enter it and reassign the task.
    To organize an event. You can describe, step by step, all the work to have an event under control, with the responsibility of each worker. It shows the progress or stagnation of each person and can attend any difficulty in time. To assign research guidelines to journalists. The subject is assigned, the readings that must be consulted, the interviews are planned and a deadline for delivery is given. With Trello, the journalist indicates the progress of each step. Organize the tasks of the audiovisual production team. Once the work topic is defined, the activities that must be fulfilled for each phase of the audiovisual production are described, with dates of deployment, production, and final delivery.
    Trello works by boards, which sometimes makes it difficult to work when we needed, for example, global labels. On each board, you must define and/or repeat your labels specifically. We use it for small projects because its boards are limited when it comes to the management of many people or very large projects.

    Team collaboration on boards is easy. It is an extremely intuitive application. If you expect a setting or program instruction to be found at a specific place, the chance is good that it is there. The third party integrations through Trello's Powerups functionality, makes it possible to develop a customized Trello solution that is very powerful. But, that means that a user, or a company, would need to create an account with each of the third party solutions. This could become costly and difficult to manage because each solution has its own subscription rules. I am very happy to use Trello. I use it everyday as my primary productivity management tool and as organisational repository for all the tasks associated with my different work projects. I have different boards for each project and many lists and cards for each boards. Cards are easily moved between lists once they are completed or when their content changes and they consequently relate better to a different list.
    The visual appeal of Trello is the major factor that makes me prefer if above other productivity management solutions. The interface is easy to use and understand. It is easy to change card into its own list, or to transfer it to another board. Navigation is simple. Multiple users can access and work on a board if they have the permission. A long list of other software products can be easily integrated with Trello with Powerups - (1). This makes it easy to access files/information contained in other products without leaving Trello. (2). It is consequently also easy to navigate to the other products through Trello. It allows attachments of many different types to the cards. Time/date stamp comments can be made to cards. Activity on boards and cards are also time/date stamped with information regarding the changes made. Team collaboration on boards is easy. It is a very intuitive application. If you expect a setting or program instruction to be found at a specific place, the chance is good that it is there. It is easy to set-up a new team with access rights to certain boards. The GUI and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) of Trello, is very well developed and thought out. Checklists can be added a card. It is easy to set-up a new team with access rights to certain boards.
    Text formatting is not enabled with the common "drag-select-change" or keyboard shortcuts that users are used too from other familiar applications. Instead characters need to be entered among the text to change a word to bold/italics... or to make text into headers, lists, and any other format options. The text format rules that Trello uses is called: Markdown formatting syntax. One has to remember the correct syntax if one wishes to edit the format of text. Workflow automation or task assignment automation could strengthen Trello - but it does enable integration with other applications that might fill this requirement. A calendar view is not part of the basic Trello solution - once again a integration with a third party application is required.

    Trello allowed me to create a more organized schedule, especially with projects that had no specific date to do any activity, so it made my life a lot easier, for example: before using Trello I made lists of what I had to do during the week and day , and whenever I couldn't do a task I had to copy it back to the next list of the following week, erasing everything, with Trello I no longer have this problem I managed to optimize my time because now with Trello I look at all my projects I see which ones are the next actions to be done on the list, and the notifications with reminders that I post always appear, and when I finish the task I mark it and it turns green, and the ones in red are the ones I still have to do, so my conclusion about Trello is that I still intend to continue using this application, I think it fulfills its function very well.
    the cool thing about Trello is that as soon as you download it to your device, it comes with a welcome board that shows what you can do with the trello app, at first glance, it has a presentation card where you click and can make a description of the card or add a comment, add images, add a link, create checklists, tags, you can create as many lists as you want, file a card, all this the app will teach you, it is very good for managing projects , it is very practical, so it is not an application so difficult to learn to handle because it is very visual, another advantage is the integration of trello with various platforms, for example, windows, ios, so that there is no difficulty of access through another browser, even if it is not installed on your device, you can access and manipulate it without having to download it.
    the only disadvantage i've seen so far is that i didn't learn how to create teams in the app just to be able to create on the computer on the site, so when i click add, i can only add a new board and select which team i'll put, but so far i don't know how to add a new team, I don't know if it's not possible or if it's my mistake, another disadvantage is the number of limited power-ups that are offered in the free version, so I can only add a power-up and if I want to put dropbox and Evernote I can't, but it's fair, it's an application that has a commercial version so if you want to use more tools I think it's fair to pay for them, as it is useful for several companies.

    Excellent tool that allows me to take control of my personal tasks, the university and independent projects in a simple way, for example has allowed me, together with my students, to take control of each phase of the development of the systems to evaluate in class, step step by step and in that way to take better control and that each group does not consent to the status of each of their tasks to be performed. It has also facilitated the development of projects with colleagues who are physically at a distance so that in this way we can keep track of the tasks assigned to each member and the state in which they are located....
    Excellent free tool for the control of projects, tasks among others, organizational and personal. What I like the most is its simple organization that allows creating boards, in which you can create different lists, and within these lists, cards. These cards change the list as they are made or pass through different lists: Tasks, in process and finished. The cards support everything: any type of documentation, images, videos, lists, comments, etc., so they also serve as an instrument of communication in working groups, about a certain topic. Tags help you organize tasks taking into account the location and / or the type of activity. For example: home, work, phone call, errands ... You can manage from an organizational project and invite employees to simple tasks, such as tasks to perform on a normal day in your home. and you can have your notifications directly in your email or cell phone, since it has an application that you can use in Android and IOS. The application allows you to organize your tasks in separate projects or folders. You can also customize the appearance of the application, for example, by choosing a different color theme. The application allows you to mark the status of your tasks; as: "active", "postponed", "completed", etc. and the best The best of all, is that you do not have to erase anything. When you want to clean up your tasks, you just have to archive them and they disappear. At any time you can see all the archived items, and make searches. Also ap
    It does not allow to create repetitive work lists to be able to do "cycles" of tasks (For example: X tasks every Monday, or the repetitive tasks of each beginning of the month).

    With Trello, Human Resource efficiency is achieved very well. Time & Money spent on meetings have been cut down to a minimum which leads to a huge savings by the company. The overall experience of using Trello has be beneficial and I would recommend this to all Small & Medium Enterprise as a tool to keep track of projects & tasks.
    Trello is very useful for any company especially when there is a project needed to be completed by the team. Firstly, organizing tasks for individual employees on individual boards is very easy. Once you login you can easily get around and figure things out because of the simplistic setup. Assigning & Archiving tasks is very simple. Secondly, Trello helps with a problem that is rife among companies in Fiji and everywhere else in the world. With Trello, Managers and supervisors have no need of calling meetings to check on the progress of each team member. In my experience, Trello saved us a lot of valuable time as my boss did not need to have a meeting to check on the progress of certain tasks assigned. Instead Trello was used as a gauge to see whether projects would be completed in time. Also, with Trello you can access all your tasks from your mobile device. You also receive real time notification if someone comments on your card or mentions you in a comment. This is very helpful especially when you are always on the go.
    Trello, although very effective, is also very limited in terms of the project it can handle. Small projects are perfect for Trello but not large scale ones. For example, in our company, we would use the app for things like ordering a helicopter part overseas and also handling the freight and shipping up until it is being delivered. Also, storage data is limited so attachments like mp4 videos & other large media files cannot be uploaded. Sometimes we would like to attach videos on Trello just to give a clearer picture to the Managers who would be reading it and its an issue when the storage space allowed is very limited. Moreover, a hindering component of Trello is the fact that without Internet you cannot view or update tasks. Since there is no desktop version it puts pressure on the employees to have data at all times to make sure they know what's going on with every single task.

    Overall we use Trello to track our active project/job status and information and share it with our project manager who is out in the field and uses Trello on his company iPad and mobile phone. It instantly updates on all devices when we make any changes which is great since we attack a work order PDF to each project for our manager to view in the field so he knows what the job entails.
    The basic version of Trello is free to use and it allows you to share your boards with 1 other user. We use a board to track jobs for our small business by making a card for each separate job. I love the simple layout and easy drag and drop option to move a card from one column to the next to track the status (we use columns such as Ready, In-progress, & Complete). The cards show very basic information to keep your Trello board (screen) streamlined and easy to view. Then when you click on a card, you get additional information such as notes, images, documents, etc. You can even type messages back and forth with whoever you share the board with and they will get an alert on their device to know they have a new message. Trello works really great on computer, tablet, and mobile. I use it regularly on each. Also, the ability to make a checklist and be able to check off items once they are complete for each project is awesome.
    There isn't much to not like about it, but I do wish it had a numerical value input option that could be used to calculate a numeric value of all boards in a column (such as hours or dollar amounts). However, there are options to upgrade your Trello subscription either by paying a minimal monthly fee. Sharing Trello with other people and getting them to sign up can also earn you some free upgrades.

    Trello is an easy to use to-do list/project management app. After being introduced to it 3 years ago, its the one todo list app that I keep coming back to. 1) The intuitive design of Trello makes it easy to get started. Its functions just work, whether its drag and drop, moving cards across lists, or setting up boards, you can easily get started using Trello in minutes. Trello's simplicity aids in its overall feel and use. 2) Trello's cards & lists allow you to really go in depth with project planning. While other platforms may have to do lists of sorts, with Trello's you get a checklist for each card, which can be a task with sub tasks. The use of the boards and lists also helps for those that need deep project management features 3) Trello has some hidden gems such as free downloadable boards, a Calendar view for lists vs using the standard board view, Power Ups and easy integration with email, shortcuts and more. You can use Trello to manage projects in many different ways. I like to think of it as a Swiss Army knife for Project Management. 4) Its mostly free. Its hard to really beat free stuff and Trello is right up there. Most features can be used without paying so thats really great.
    My only gripes with Trello are: 1) The lack of new features in a while. It feels like the only progress of Trello is coming from Power Ups. 2) I tend to whine a lot about mobile app support and while I feel the current versions are sufficient, but the lack of a dedicated Apple Watch app for example is a bummer. To Do list apps like Things have apps for every platform including Apple Watch. 3) Trello is great for smaller teams but if you have a large team collaborating on Trello can be cumbersome.

    i like it so much! I use it for personal tasks and projects sush as a wedding or a birthday party. We use it at wirk as a team. It is a great way to collaborate, to see the progress, to share, to comment, to do the tasks as a team. I like that it has a free version for both personal and team use. ITs interface is easy to use. Their Mascot Taco is awesome!

    I used Trello as a task/project manager at first, but never liked it. It was when I started using Trello to track books/TV/films/games progress that it became phenomenal. Trello's API allows me to easily send new items to the board and attach corresponding images (book covers, album art etc.) fetched from the APIs of other databases.

    I like Trello, but was a little bit concerned about the security. So I am switching it to pm tools that can be self-hosted. I compare the features and workflow of Jira and ZenTao, and chose the later for it supports the whole lifecycle of software development. Just a thougt.

    Provides Kanban board functionality for free. A reasonable entry in the market but it would certainly be worthwhile to check out other offerings in the market as well.

    What I like in Trello: links between boards, ability to use addons and plugins, Automatisation.
