Features:

  • Add simple automation to your everyday tasks.
  • Unlimited personal boards to work on.
  • 100+ native app integrations.

Cons:

  • Forever free plan available for unlimited personal use.
  • Paid plans starting from US$9.99 per month.

Easy to learn and integrate with other apps, Trello is the perfect way to creatively organize all of your pieces in one place, especially if you’re working in a design or product based market. With Trello, you can categorize cards into lists and add attachments, links, notes, checklists, due dates and so much more. Additionally, add team members to your board and collaborate directly in the comments of each card (we use this with our team members here at V+V!). Automations and power-ups also allow you to tailor your boards further with calendars and Google Drive syncing.

Trello is super visual, so if you’re someone who needs everything laid out in a way that almost feels physical, this should be your go-to.

Trello is great for small to medium projects. I use it for personal projects like planning a party as well as managing my content calendars for both my blog and YouTube channel. Trello uses visual Kanban boards to help you manage and track the progress of your project. I recommend Trello because it is easy to use, supports working with a project team, and it has a smartphone app that allows you to manage projects from anywhere.

We have tried and tested various apps and tools for improving our communication and collaboration as teamwork plays a pivotal role in the success of any organization.

Top 3 things to consider while choosing a project management software/tool:

1. Task Management: How easily you are able to create, assign, and manage tasks during the entire process.
2. Team Collaboration: The ability to have team discussions, private messaging and receive alerts for messages.
3. Integration with other apps: Does it allow integration with other apps or tools?

The Project Management tool used by our team is Trello.

1. It has different boards, lists, and cards that help us to organize and prioritize our tasks. We have a separate board for each project.
2. We can easily assign tasks to team members along with deadlines and keep track of each other’s progress.
3. We can easily comment, give feedback to others and share files on Trello which keeps everything streamlined and helps us to stay on top of things.
4. It has eliminated our email load and consequently enhanced our productivity. We don’t waste our time in checking endless emails or waiting for another team member’s response. Instead, we always work efficiently and are able to deliver projects on time.
5. We have integrated it with our other favorite tools such as Google Drive, Slack, and Evernote which is a huge plus.

This is an indispensable Kanban-style list-making app. We use it for everything from simple “to-do” lists, to extensive project tracking. The most challenging aspect of our business is keeping teams organized and goal-focused. Trello keeps everybody up-to-date on project status and workflow.

It’s an easy application to learn — like, 1-out-of-5 easy. There’s a mobile version of this app but we use the desktop, cloud-based version. Trello is great for task and project management. The information on the Kanban boards is available at a glance, and you can pack a lot of details on each card.

Everyone uses Trello for project management, but there is a reason to this. It’s design and user interface is something that everyone can learn to use very quickly. Some sites are overly complicated, for no real reason either, whereas Trello can allow for many tasks and projects, without making it something that people cannot use down to complexity. I would highly recommend this tool to people looking for a project management tool, especially for people who have never used one before.

Its task-oriented application on which we gather all the necessary tasks for the day and disperse it towards our employees. It’s a great platform for productivity and being efficient at work.

Pricing: Its a free application for the task manager.

This is how I schedule and plan all of my social media managing whether its content, managing staff involved with the social media management tasks for the day or more. I like to create all of my checklists and systems via trello (it’s free). Everything is available online so I can share with others team members the tasks for the day/week and I have a common place where I can plan and create all of my content or hashtags or ads.

Trello is great for planning out your milestones and making sure you hit your objectives. The visual appeal is great and everything is laid out simply. Add and subtract details, change due dates and assign tasks to different people.

For my personal to-do list and consulting projects, I use Trello. It’s set up in a Kanban board style and allows me to sort projects based on what’s assigned, completed and so forth. Using Trello feels a bit like playing solitaire in that you drag and drop your “project” cards into different columns based on the status. It’s very intuitive and great for those managing collaborative team projects like building a website or planning a wedding.

For business teams that look for simple, efficient and cost effective solutions to manage their (Agile) projects, I highly recommend Trello. It’s easy to setup and use.
