I’ve been a big fan of trello for a long time. Long before Atlassian acquired them, which I have mixed feeling about. Atlassian development is painfully slow and now so will TRELLO’s. That said one of the big most recent complaints is that there are all sorts of docs about how to do this and that, and not one of them that I’ve found tells you WHERE you must be to see that, at all. Example. There is no way via tbe mobile app to leave a guest board. But it’s very easy on a desk. I found this out the hard way, and on my own. No docs mention this. When I asked for help NO ONE bothered to ask, or mention that I could easily accomplish this on a desk, where I RARELY go to use trello. When people can’t find something and you should know it’s different in different places, that’s question number 1. “How are you accessing the tool?” followed by “what you’re looking for may only be available via the desktop app or browser” all frustration would have been abated by that simple response or addendum to docs.
Good overall but there a few seemingly minor-to-add things that would be significant quality of life improvements. These are what’s missing that I think wouldn’t be hard to add that would be big improvements: ability to sort by due date on the app (this one is hugely irritating since this feature is available on the browser version), ability to select a default auto sorting (like to always have it sorted by due date instead of having to resort it every time after adding new cards), ability to set the times that reminders are sent (as it is it’s just auto set to send a reminder 24 hours before the due date set, and that’s not useful for a lot of things that I need reminders for in school). It would be nice if there was a setting that marked cards as completed in the due date box when they are moved to my “Done” column area, instead of needing to manually do it. It would also be nice if the icon for the checklist on the collapsed cards wasn’t checked off unless all the items on the checklist are checked off; it’s counterintuitive for the box to be shown checked off when I don’t have anything checked off on the checklist. Would be easier to manage what’s done and what’s not visually if the box were not checked until the checklist is completed. I still have to supplement this app with other reminder apps and google calendar and tasks because of the lack of ability to set reminders at specific times/days.
Trello has run my life for more than 5 years. The tool is so flexible and simple at the same time, the main limitation is your imagination. Recently the AI has started to make itself more obvious and helpful to my workflows. I’m enjoying an app that has been a core part of my life mainly in the past on web/desktop, now across web, phone and tablet even more than I have ever enjoyed it before. I have used similar and arguably more power tools like AirTable extensively. I might find my way back to that tool for some use cases, maybe such as programming integrations... but Trello is my home for what to do next, quarterly and yearly planning, goals, ideating, basic project management and recently it has sort of evolved into a personal diary of the day gone past. If I could ask one thing of the Trello team, it would be to have the power to turn off/toggle features/UI elements per board. Everything from labels, to activity, due date and members. This would make the tool comparable to airtable where you can customize the noise/size of each card to minimize unnecessary visual data overload per the specific task/data set you are utilizing the tool for. Thanks Trello Team. 💕💕 Trello so much, I even bought the yearly gold subscription even though I don’t need it.
I have been using Trello for about a month—for personal and project management at work. It’s best on a desktop, but the app is great too. The app feels a lot like the desktop version which is nice. Trello is flexible, with a simple interface, but has lots of power under the hood if you choose to use it. My boss likes it too, and I’m finally realizing my dream of having a shared company task list. This is definitely more than just a task list though. I’ve tried lots of productivity apps, and I like this one the best by far. Downsides: Desktop version does not work offline. Mobile does, so I use my tablet or phone as sort of a back up. I also wish it was a little quicker (less steps) to do some of the functions on the mobile app, especially to archive (delete) a card. You can drag it to a “done” list though and then archive all the cards in that list from time to time. That works fine, but once in a while I miss a checkbox style way of deleting that would be quicker. The widget allows a pretty quick card add function for doing a quick GTD style item-to-inbox capture, but if that was streamlined even more (less steps) that would be great. All in all I really love Trello a lot and have recommended it to others.
I NEVER rate apps when promoted, but I LOVE THIS APP! It works across the board on browser, Microsoft App, and Apple App seamlessly. You can always access all the information that this program has helped you do. It’s incredible. If you have a team or a boss that tracks updates or information is handed off to team members or otherwise at different stages of the project, this app makes it happen with no fumbles. It is about to replace all my daily recap emails that I send to my boss at the end of my day. He uses my updates as a reminder to him to make sure he doesn’t forget, but even if it is to make sure that an employee is actually completing their work properly, the presence of this app completely removes that “micro-managing” feeling. As a project manager, I am constantly asking a wide variety of people for things and then constantly following up. If I forget to follow up, then that blame is on me at the end of the day. This app lays the whole spectrum out for me and I don’t have to go digging in my email or set a ton of tasks that go off like ticking time bombs. Every step on every project is constantly in front of me and nothing goes unnoticed or forgotten if I have done my job and imputed the info. Obsessed.
I use this to plan and organize my goals and task list for business as well as for personal financial planning ideas and moves. I also have it for the Grocery where my wife and I add items off a staples list and other lists to a needed items grocery list. I have a basket list so while I’m the grocery you just slide items off the need list to in your basket list until all needed items are off the needed items list. I can even add items from home while my wife is shopping. A great communication tool also with my siblings to coordinate care for our parents. It keeps everyone up to date. No more trading emails. The uses of Trello are limited by your imagination. My problem is I have a large number of Trello lists that itself is manageable with a means of looking at all cards coming due chronologically across numerous lists. Now, if I can keep my wife from adding to my to Do house maintenance list I would have more time to relax. Seriously, give Trello a try! It’s so easy to use you have no excuse if you want to be more organize and get things done, including planning.
Trello is a pretty decent reminder app. If you're someone who's an intense organizer, this app gives you options such as creating boards that you can use to organize your lists in. It gives you little extras like including files, checklists, due dates, etc. and you can also create teams in this. However, there's one major issue I'm having and I'm not sure if it's just how the app is or if it's only me. The whole point of a reminder app is to, well, remind you, and this app isn't doing the job for me. It's great for creating lists of things you can easily forget about, but where are the notifications? I turned mine on but it doesn't work well. For an example of how this can become annoying, I constantly am forgetting that I must return my library books because it's not allowing me to ask for reminders set for specific times where I will remember to do something about my books before they'll be late and I fear I won't get them in on time because of this problem for me. Despite how amazing this app is for someone like me, I just can't accept no real notifications. If you're fine without them though then I highly suggest this app.
I started out 40 years ago using Day Timers to keep track of my Engineering efforts. I have seen other time management tools come and go, but I could always count on my personal setup. I have seen some Kanban board wannabes that disappeared quickly. The only time management tool that keyed my interest in the meantime was Getting Things Done. Pushed into the iPhone age, I really hadn’t found a tool that was digitally based that allowed me to keep track like I wanted. I was getting a young engineer into GTD because I wanted him to be able to keep track of the information that was being pushed his way. In the course of his studies in GTD, he came across Trello and suggested I try it. I am happy to report that I have finally found my lost digital tool. I am able to keep track like I want and have it available 24/7. It’s also lighter. It’s now an obsession since I have nearly 100 balls in the air right now. I actually getting sleep as well. Good product, great feature set, lots of platforms, etc. I highly recommend.
My brother showed me this app 3 years ago. Every week, I seem to add more of life’s work onto the apps shoulders. The app never crashes, there’s usually never any bugs. It’s very simply created. The developers really thought this out very well! It’s a neat interface! I use the app almost with muscle memory I don’t have to think about anything whenever I work on there. I use it on all platforms. If you design it right, you could spend an entire day on the app just planning your life out. The best part I like about Trello - it’s free. It’s free for functions that I would normally pay for! I have boards for all aspects of my life. I use the checklist function most often. I can plan my life on here and it has happily become a very important part of my life. I have never come across an app like this that allows you to map out exactly how you want to map it out. You’ve probably heard this before, but the developers did an amazing job! And they continue to do so! Dhruv Sarin (Customer since 2017!)
Trello is an intuitive way to make lists. I used to have paper lists, and it was time consuming to recopy them as things got done. With Trello, I can drag them to a “Done” list, which is a nice reminder of things accomplished. The app is most useful for keeping track of things that are important, but not urgent - the task reminders are better in Google Calendar. As I think of something, I can add it to the personal/family/work lists. Then, it’s easier to drag items up and down according to priority. Also helps keep family needs in sync with my spouse, as we can edit the lists on any device and they all sync. For us, Trello acts as a filing cabinet for what needs to be done at some point. For the most important/urgent things each day, I keep a very short (Top 3) paper list, to reduce how much time I spend getting distracted on my phone. Trello is super useful for building the daily list, then putting away until an idea/need pops up, and recording it until building the next day’s Top 3.
I absolutely love this app it works great for my network marketing business I’m able to keep track of all my potential‘s and my customers there’s only one thing that I wish was different which would be when you open the Calendar power up instead of showing what you scheduled for that day I wish it would show the persons name instead of what you typed in you had to do for that person that day. So on the Phone app it shows the task but when I open Trello on my computer and open up the Calendar power up it shows the name of the person I put on that card so I guess what I’m saying is I wish on the Phone app that it would show the name on the card that was created rather than the checklist that you added to that card. Maybe there’s a way for it to do that and I just don’t know how?? Also is there a reason why we can’t add checklists that are premade two cards through the iPhone app?? And lastly can we get the time stamps removed from the due dates or have the option of an “all day”.
I downloaded the Trello app at the beginning of the year and I’ve loved using it to stay on top of my tasks. I’m a Masters student studying Project Management and it’s been a VERY busy year, but using Trello has helped me manage everything I’ve needed to do. The only suggestion I’d make for a possible improvement is changing the view so that the only tasks you see are those that need to be worked on or that are due that particular day. Like I said, I study Project Management and this is mostly inspired by software like Jira— I think it would be great if there was some kind of backlog in Trello that you could add ‘to do’ items to, and then include a start and/or due date. Then when you finish adding them to the backlog and go back to regular view, you’re only shown the tasks you need to work on that day. As much as I like knowing what needs to get done, I also have anxiety, and seeing every single task I need to get done at once stresses me out. Just a thought!
Just play around with it until you figure it out. I’ll admit there were things I had to learn through trial and error but if you just start a personal board and use it for simple at-home tasks you will quickly get the hang of it. I organize everything with it now and it’s amazing. I wish I could make a career out of setting up Trello Boards for businesses. It’s so much better than email for internal communication and I definitely recommend using with Dropbox files to create a dashboard for viewing files in a more organized way. Being able to add backgrounds and cover photos to your lists makes it feel so much less like work when you’re looking at an aesthetically pleasing dashboard. I have everything from professional looking business boards with cover photos that help direct other members to the correct file locations to super glam and girly personal boards that speak to my soul. Trello is life changing.
Hi Trello, my church staff uses this app for many different things. This app has been great and still is. All though I’ve noticed something so simple yet effective?! We don’t have the option to change our profile name without having to delete our profile accounts... can you make this an option as it is for many many many different apps. The profile name selected for me isn’t what I want and unless there is an option that I don’t see to keep my profile account without having to delete it to change my profile name on Trello I would love to see an update for “ option to change profile name “ that would be great. Also maybe some minor detailed stuff to make our boards and conversations more well organized yet easy to follow and some capabilities to edit notifications. That would be great. Can you respond to this so I can know your interested in what your app users are saying to help make your app better? Thanks so much.
The best scheduling software app out there and free….
I love that I can use it with literally all clients and even employees….and I really think you should charge more so you can keep up with your great product and make it so much better than everything thats already out there as its already the best but it doesn’t have everything typical scheduling softwares do since I don’t think Trello ever meant to make it that way. Most other scheduling apps don’t even send alerts and I think that’s where the issue lies…this app actually is super easy to use and gives you the right to upload images, videos, comments, alerts by email, serves as a portal for clients if your business is set up towards trello. I think to make this the best app in the world you just have to integrate with companies like MORAWARE that are seriously lacking in this side of their business but have amazing take off capabilities that no other company has.
I use this app the chart my pets medications as well as my family’s personal schedule. I also use it to keep track of projects I am doing for work. It’s really easy and convenient. I really can’t say enough good about this app. I can easily add records individually to each individual project, as well as photos and documents. It syncs perfectly with the app in windows 10 computer as well. I can also add or delete others that I want to have input from in regards to a specific project. It interfaces seamlessly with several other applications, google photos, MS One drive and adobe just to name a few. Now that I have used this app for awhile and I have really gotten a handle on its features, I am pretty much using it exclusively for both business, and personal organization. It makes the separation of the two easy and it’s even kind of fun! I never thought I would say that about charting documents! Seriously, the best app ever!!
Update - I’ve used this app for several years and the past week it no longer works correctly. The app will load the home page but when I try to click the board I need, it freezes and shuts down. Extremely frustrating when this is the board I use to manage all of my project statuses for clients. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but with no luck. This JUST started happening a few days ago. I am going to continue using the desktop version; hoping that isn’t experiencing the same issues. This is a great app that I’ve used frequently, both personally and professionally. However, I really wish there was a way to turn off “Recent Boards”, or at least move it to the bottom of the list. It’s inefficient to scroll past and rarely useful. While researching if it was possible to hide, I can see posts about it back as far as 2014. Please implement what seems like should be a quick option in settings to hide this feature from your boards/team view.
Trello/Atlassian Support, I hope you are reading here bc i can’t send you a support ticket because I’m using the app and have no idea how to then send you a page URL from within the app. But you won’t let me report the bug without the page URL. My workflow has been slowed way down since the upgrade. If i drag a card to the next column and then try to open it I get a message saying “We had a problem displaying the card. Wait a moment and try again.” I not only have to wait for the disc to quit spinning showing that trello is updating the card in the new list, but I have to also wait a few more seconds or i get that red banner message. When the red banner pops up, it also sends my opened card back to the list. In my work, I do that motion of moving a card and updating it about 25 Xs a day. I pray that you are aware and already working on it. Thnx!
I’d love to have (or know if there is) a quick easy and sure way to know what knew information is shared on Trello that would give you a notification and be able to simply click a notification button to take you right to what new information is shared for that group that you are in. I understand that there is the @ button that people can use to notify you directly which is cumbersome and lots of steps to notify several people, but in general if new info is shared that we wouldn’t have to search through all of Trello to find it or wonder what we might be missing? Similar to Facebook notifications that you click and takes you right to it. Thanks! Otherwise Trello is great and a real good way of communicating and keeping everyone informed and share thoughts etc.
I used to love this app and the ability to create diff boards and diff lists. I have used it fir just about everything. Well just the last couple weeks I have gone in it to look at some of boards and they are now gone. Two diff boards I used less often than my others are gone as if they were removed and I am really upset at this. One was a board for homeschooling resources that had quite a bit on it and the other was gifts. I am tempted to not recommend people use this if our boards are just going to be erased. I have been using this platform since 2018 and if storage was changed I should have been informed instead of just deleting my storage without a word. I am really disappointed and hope this changes or there is a way I could get those back or I may be searching for a different platform that won’t just go and delete my stuff that I had because of the pay verses non pay platform changed in storage.
Ive been searching for an app to use for managing projects as a project manager and most have way more info than I need or just doesn’t have the ability to adjust for what I need. Being a bit OCD this app fit the bill perfectly! I manage up to 20 different projects at a time with projects being at various stages and the simplicity of this app along with the customization fives me the power to view and adjust from any device at any time. I recently started sharing the board with my sales team and they love being able to see in real time what is happening with their projects without me having to update them all the time. The program just informs them in an email anytime I update the cards that they are assigned too. Game changer for me where I was using 5 different excel spreadsheets to manage my projects, now I capture everything with Trello.
I was drawn to write this review because of how incredibly helpful Trello has been in helping me organize the process of setting up my new small business. I was looking for a cross between a To Do list and a Project Management tool. Most To Do lists were too simple. Most Project Management tools were too rigid and intimidating. Trello combines the two into an very intuitive and flexible interface. As a bonus, it easily allows for sharing with a team and assigning responsibilities. To be honest, I’ve only scratched the surface of what Trello can do. I may eventually get into Power Ups, which can automate of the of the processes. I guess what I’m saying is that it’s amazingly scaleable. It has the ability to grow with you and your your company or project. Do yourself a favor and try it out. You won’t regret it!
One things for sure. This app is ALWAYS getting better or trying their hardest to do it. I use plenty of Atlassian apps like confluence, Jira, Bitbucket. But the Trello team seems to be the forgotten child for some reason. To me...it is the All Star of the group. Trello isn’t as Rigid as Jira, yet it can accomplish anything Jira can. Jira is great to hit the ground running for Agile project teams that just want a good preset platform with awesome integration to Confluence. But Trello is the Canvass that belongs to the Artist! You decide what it does and what fields belong there. It has GREAT mobile support that matches the desktop experience pretty closely. You always feel in control and your limiting factor with Trellobis your own creativity. Butler bot is a great tool to have as well for the Trello Add ons. Special Thanks to the Trello team for working so hard to keep such a fine tuned app running!
I’ve been looking for an app to help me manage my swimming pool construction business and I have finally found it! This app is amazing! Everyone I am sure uses it in different ways, but it has allowed me to create customer job boards to help manage every step of my process. My employees can log in and see what needs to be completed and leave their own feed back on each job with pictures to document every job they perform. The best part is I can also invite the customer to the board so they can follow along and never miss a step! They will also always have a place to store all the info for their pool to keep a record from the construction of their pool, colors, warranty info and any services they have performed after the pool is built. Definitely a must have app for any business owner! Thank you so much!
I don’t know why anyone would prefer the app compared to the web version even on a phone. First, there is the friction that comes from the fact the app is similar but just different enough than the web version that it can throw off your flow. Adding a checklist to a card goes to the top on the app, but adding a checklist goes to the bottom on the web. So to get your checklists in order on the app, you have to put them in from last to first... what? (You can’t re-arrange them after you’ve made them, either.) This is just an example of the confusion and frustration a Trello fan will encounter because things are just a little different on the app, and sometimes they’re just missing altogether. Then there are the power ups. They’re awesome, right? Well, they don’t work in the app. It is probably for security reasons and not Trello’s fault — but again, just use the web version for a more consistent experience (same UI, same features).
I don’t look at this like a task management app, but I have not found anything better as far as project management goes. It seems to have a seamless flow. I’m primarily a visual and tactile person, and for me the versatility for organization is unmatched. Seeing cards rather than lists and being able to drag and drop is just more intuitive for me, and color coded labels are so helpful for me to track progress. Although I have not used this to collaborate, I can see how powerful of a tool it would be for a team. I also highly suggest Trello for those in small business. It’s so hard to keep everything moving when you do so many administrative tasks in house (accounting, hiring, training, social media management, marketing, operations, sales) With Trello you can basically make a Kanban board for each.
When it comes to organizing your workflow and collaborating with your coworkers this app is amazing !! There are a few quality of life improvements that I wish they were there : 1. When setting reminders for a card I wish there were some options like Morning , Evening, Night in addition to the time scroll wheel to speed up the process. Also 1 minute intervals is too short in my opinion but thats just a personal preference. 2. When it comes to Widgets on iOS and iPad OS i i think being able to see a single/Multiple Boards on screen is much more useful than being able to create a new card from home screen. All in all this is by far the best app I have seen for organizing workflow and I very appreciate the efforts.
I don’t use Trello the way you’re “supposed to” or at least I don’t think I do. I’ve found every web browser to be lacking in their “bookmark” world. I use Trello to organize all of my research, passions, recipes, work or design ideas into different boards, categories and pages. You can then use search to find any keyword on any of your boards! Research for example, I can find one or several websites that have information that I may want to reference in the future, I can make a list for them and add them one card at a time, or I can make one board and organize the research project in that manner. Versatile! THEN if I have a friend that is interested in learning whatever it is I just finished researching, I can give them a link to my board and they can have access to whatever notes I took, links and info that I found. I don’t enjoy using Pinterest, it’s too busy and assaulting to my eyes. I find Trello to be clean cut, and streamlined with only the visuals that I want shown. I also like that I can choose photos from upsplash to add into my pages, and that it automatically does a preview of whatever website I add. Love love love it.
I’ve only had this installed for a few hours, and in that time, I’ve gotten to know Trello’s neat and organized system. I don’t plan on using this for group projects— I’m using it to organize my writing. So far this app had been clean and easy to use after a bit of playing around with its features. I like how you can attach files (in my case, Google doc links) and write short notes about what’s been attached. The lists feature makes it very easy to organize my chaotic scenes into Beginning, Middle, and End lists, as well as make lists for the premise, characters, and questions I have about my writing so that I may further develop plot and characters. I was recommended this app while looking up tips for organizing my writing. Fingers crossed that this works!
Important Trello features from Web have been missing for years
I often want to make a new list right next to a current list, or in front of the first list. I can’t do that with this app and it seems like basic functionality. I would think I long-press anywhere in empty space and I get the option to do that. I realized I could probably hack an Automation to do that, but you can’t edit or make new automations in the app. These are 2 relatively important functions to Trello that haven’t existed for years in this app. Yeah, you can move cards and lists around, that is the basic functionality. That works well. Trello’s extra features are designed around power users and this app is not. EDIT: I found a workaround which is to copy an empty list into the position you want. So I upgraded review to 2 stars. “Add New List” is all you need in the … drop down though, and it’s not there.
If you are lost in the insanity of task management, start using Trello and look on the internet for the myriad of examples of people using it effectively. The ability to visualize my task list by breaking it up into organized parts has helped clear my head and equip me to get things done. I’m no longer a “deer in the headlights” when looking at my tasks, because now I only look at the “In Progress” list. When I’m done with the task(s) on that list, I drag them to the “Done” list and then pull another task or two and drag them to “in progress.” But the value of Trello goes way beyond task management. You can simplify any project, no matter the inherent complexity (I recently used it to organize our move to a new residence).
I am all in on Trello. I run my entire office through the service, and it is fantastic. But the app fails to take advantage of any of the wonderful features of the service. On my iPad I have run the service through a browser, which I invariably turn to after being unable to make the app work, which makes the app reminder floating at the top of the Trello web page the more infuriating. The app is unresponsive and slow, doesn’t work well with third party add ins (many of which are paid for), universal searches for individual cards don’t work and there doesn’t seem to be any way to search for cards within boards. With thousands of cards, this alone renders the app unusable. This review is not intended to bash Trello, but a cry for help for the developer to either put the same attention to detail into the app, or abandon it. This poor performance will only serve to tarnish a otherwise glowing reputation.
Trello has been a very useful tool for our team and organizing our operations. However, we have had to build many of our own security measures to make up for the lack of features Trello offers and the potential dangers of board raiders. Now Trello is spamming all of our organization’s members with 500+ emails each and loads of push notifications, and their support simply doesn’t care and suggests changing our usernames! Edit: After contacting their email provider’s abuse team they seemed to get a lot more concerned and actually got developers involved to fix the issue. They seem to have the resources but will only get involved when it also becomes a problem for them.
I opted to download this app for my personal use, not a team effort. I want to get to know it before I go any further, and being required to use a log in and password implies, despite words to the contrary, that one will eventually be locked out of one’s own files if one does not jump through some form of new hoop later on. Already experienced this before. It also implies that it can be used only if one is connected to the internet or the cloud. I’ve never seen the logic of having to syphon personal information, plans, ideas or thoughts through the internet in order to make use of them for one’s self. Besides, it’s just another password and user name I don’t want to commit to a keychain or have to remember myself. Perhaps you could grant the user the option of logging in or not, and explain the advantages/disadvantages for doing so. In the meantime, I’ll be deleting this app after only fifteen minutes on my desktop.
My bf and I use this app for grocery lists and to organize who and what we get for Christmas. I love that you can change the colors of labels; we use this to symbolize complete or incomplete gifting. The reason I rated it 3 stars is because of the way you delete a card. This app has the ability to move entire lists and individual cards, but not any easy way to remove them. Archive them? No I wish to delete them. It takes 4 clicks to delete a card. I cannot figure out how to delete lists, I have no idea how to do it. The standard is to swipe to your left and then possibly a prompt are you sure you want to delete this, but 4 STEPS? REALLY? How can there be a way to move a list around with no trash icon to put it in? This app could be much more efficient with minor updating. LISTEN TO YOUR USERS!
I work from my computer and a laptop doing web design, graphics design and online marketing for a series of clients. I used to be using apple Reminders for everything but it got so unorganized so fast. Trello is by far the best task list and organizing app that exists. I’m sure it’s great for teams and coordination but I have a lot of menial and diverse tasks on my plate at all times. Trello allows me to organize everything with due dates, checklists, categories, labels and a ton more. They also released a desktop app as well that syncs with your account. My productivity is through the roof and I find myself getting projects done long before their due dates. Don’t know how I did it before Trello.
When I realised that there was software out there to help me and my team get organized I went looking. I signed up for 3 or 4 productivity services but Trello outshined them all mostly due to its simplicity... it had the few tools I needed in easy to manipulate formats with all the share and team capabilities that I wanted. I understood it immediately. I have been using Trello for over a year now and I’ve only expanded its uses as I have slowly figured out how many more places it can apply. I started with simple to-do lists, but soon began to use lists as projects with cards tracking all the activities within those projects and checklists as quick get-‘er-done tasks. Love it Love it! Thanks Trello.
Where did my card go? Good concept, but still clunky.
I came back to this app after a few years. I like the idea, but it was too clunky 4 years ago. I have heard some good things about it and how it is smoother and the UI is more responsive. After using it, I agree that things are better. However, I have had three instances where I had created a card, put a lot of work into the content, only to have it be completely blown away because I touched in the wrong spot on my iPad. For reference, it was an accidental touch outside of the card I am working on. The thing, and the work, was up and gone. No where to be found. There does not seem to be a way to get the card back. Ouch. I also have a lovely Apple Pencil and would love to use it. Wondering if the devs could see fit to add an option to use it.
Trello is nice to use when I can see the things I need to get done. At the very least, it helps me know where I am with my projects across all of my apps. My only complaint about the app is that I use the Widget ability on my phone frequently; with other To-Do apps, I could see what I needed to do. I have terrible task permanence, where if I don't see it, I forget it's there. It would be nice to have the Widget able to display different boards like Apple's base To-Do List app. Overall, though, if you have a lot of things to do and need specific ways to organize your day and tasks, this is really nice to have! Especially if you move across multiple devices.
I have been a member since 2018 and still can’t find the proper way to use this.. maybe haven’t used it enough but my team and I have tried using this app many times but we never seem to go back to it. I don’t like how you can’t delete yourself from a board just because someone else put you in it even when you haven’t accepted to join a board you’ve been invited to. So now I have a list of boards on my account that because I wasn’t removed from them by the creator of the board it just shows there on my account. Can’t take myself off. Now I want to delete my account and start a new one. I like the concept and I love the different backgrounds it gives to personalize it but there are still functions I wish would make this more user friendly.
Aug 2018 The bug mentioned below after months of waiting was finally fixed and love the experience now as it’s a complete todo checklist for personal use as well as an excellent tool. Early 2018 I have been a long time user of Trello and a strong enthusiast of it. Have suggested it to multiple friends, colleagues and managed various projects on it. Although the checklist bug is now just driving me crazy and more so Trellos attitude to not fixing it. I did everything recommended , opened a bug ticket more than 2 months back, the bug has existed for much longer. Still no updates or any urgency in pushing the fix out. Here is the issue: Setting a checklist to Hide complete is only temporary and next time the card is opened, all the issues checked and unchecked - complete and incomplete can be seen. This is very frustrating as I heavily use checklists for my projects. The whole communication and non urgency in rolling out or fixing this bug is just abysmal, shattered my confidence in this app. So if you are a checklist person, may need to look for alternatives.
As a commercial real estate broker, I’ve been using Trello since 2014. I love it. Very versatile and easily modifiable to evolve as we grow. It’s like having a virtual white board on your phone. Everything we’re doing as a company is posted for the team to see. I know what others need from me (with a due date) and I can tell them what I need from them. We can create check lists when we take on a new assignment and easily check off each item when it is completed. I no longer wake up at 2 AM wondering if a task was completed. Now, I just drop a note into Trello and tag a colleague. When it’s done, we check it off!
Trello is an excellent way to get a birds eye view of whatever you’re working on. The ability to create boards and lists for anything with easily customizable cards makes this app so useful! I use it for organizing my editorial calendar, my schedule, as a digital bullet journal and for meal planning, among other things. I will say that the web version is better than the iPhone app when using Chrome to add extensions and customize it further, however, having everything at my fingertips and searchable is what I need most out of the phone version. I love this app and I highly recommend it to get your personal and work life organized!
I’m not using this in the typical way as it’s shown on the App Store. I’m using it to achieve personal and career goals. I’ve never been able to plan so perfectly, usually I put a plan together and do nothing with it because I end up overwhelmed with various issues, but for whatever reason this app has allowed me to plan the steps, but gives me the ability to focus. Now I find myself actually able to fill in the gaps of my longer term steps. I’ve never been happy with any of my plans until this app. The flexibility and customization really make this app shine.
The Trello app is more wedded to its data model than it is to streamlined user workflows. It eschews convenience. At the very least, I want quick access to cards with my face on them, across all boards. What I get on the home tab instead is a list of boards. Seeing everything I care about involves executing a cryptic search phrase over on the Search tab. It's also more wedded to its lists and cards interaction model than it is to the platform. This means tasks like list management feel completely unfamiliar because the app has gone far afield of standard table views, to no apparent benefit. Force touch is entirely absent within the app. Navigating backward by swiping isn't universal. Everything is just a bit slow—especially when deeplinked in from a notification. It's all too foreign, dissatisfying, and unexpected. I bet a purely UIKit Trello app would be delightful.
Edit: Thank you so much for the help! I got it figured out, and am ready to use. I’ve heard good things about the app, so I was excited to try. I can’t wait! Original: I accidentally selected to hide my email when making my account, and it won’t let me change it. I want to use my email. It gave me a temp email, and it’s making things difficult. I can’t access support because i don't have my email. I can’t delete my account because i don't have my email. I can’t change it in the settings because i don’t have my email. I can’t access the email that the app GAVE me. I really need help. :/
I depend on this app several times a day at least, but for the last week or so, every single time I add a new card to a board, it immediately disappears as it animates shooting off of the screen. EVERY SINGLE TIME. I was hopeful that this would be patched quickly, but here I am, a week later, and am left with my hands tied waiting for a fix. VERY frustrating when this is something I depend on so heavily. PLEASE FIX THIS UPDATE (7/8/22): I updated the app and was still seeing the bug. After deleting and reinstalling the app now, everything is working again! Thank you so much for your support
Awesome for staying on top of school work. I like making a card for an upcoming test and then making a list of test chapters in that card. The comments are great too because I can see the nuanced progress I’ve made on card...say if I didn’t complete something but worked on a big chunk, I can review my comments rather that having a daunting unchecked box. My only wish is for a cheaper paid option or a student discount. I don’t really need all the features enough to pay $45 a year, but I do enjoy the power ups and wish I could have 1 or 2 more. Anyway, I’ll keep using the free on because I love it. I highly recommend this app!
I have just recently been using this app since a friend recommended it and I LOVE it. This app is clean, organized, and allows you to perform tasks like create labels with such ease. Personally, I would rather write out plans, lists, etc but this is the first app that I’ve used which allows me to create things the way I would if I were to write them. The only difference is this app goes above and beyond in terms of what it can be used for. I find that it is very addictive and once I start creating a board, it is very hard to set it down. I have never taken the time to write a review for any app or product but I feel as if this app deserves it.
Not a absolutely comprehensive PIM, but flexible and usable. I use it daily. And with numerous teams for business tracking, projects, communicating, and with international teams and projects. Integrations with Slack and Evernote are also very productive. Evernote has become my dumping spot, and Trello is my active work and team spot. Keep up the good work. Also, a Done checkbox on each card should be standard. That is so basic. And a native way to export meaningful data, from select cards on select lists. A simple cvs to excel seems so reasonable. I use some Chrome extensions, but that feels like a workaround. Trello is one of my daily goto apps. I plan to stay with it for now.
