Trello for Project Management is Pretty Nice

The other day a friend of mine I’m working on a project send me a link to Trello.

Trello bills itself as project/team collaboration product.  What I can tell you is it works very nicely.

It’s always tough to find any project management tool that works for everyone.  The devs are using their dev tools and sometimes Basecamp or whatever, the sales team uses Salesforce, the product guys have some random Gantt charts .. personally, I’ve taken to Google Docs just because it’s easier to do everything in Google.  But it’s pretty bad at organizing things.

Trello works nicely.  The UI/UX needs some work, but in general, it’s totally obvious how it works, the feeds are great, and the front-end engineering is really nice.  Just drag everything when you want it.

My new tool for small collaborative projects.  Wish I’d used it for the last EchoSign holiday party 😉

  • Totally agree, have been using it for numerous projects/activities of late.

    Also, Trello have their own Engineering roadmap public on a Trello board too. Is a great way to see a lot of the functionality on offer in-action -> https://trello.com/board/trello-development/4d5ea62fd76aa1136000000c

  • That is pretty cool.

  • Have you used Asana before? I’ve heard good things about Trello lately, but I’d really love to hear from someone a pros vs cons for the two.

    We use Asana at Socialping and really like it, but I’m always open to try new tools.

  • I haven’t. I’m sure Asana is incredibly well designed. I was more impressed with how accessible Trello was to someone that doesn’t use project mgmt tools on a daily basis.
