Trello Review

A reliable and stable personal board for good monitoring of day to day tasks

What is our primary use case?

We are using the latest version, which is free and online.

I use the solution as my personal board for daily, project and operational tasks. 

What needs improvement?

As a team board it did not work well for us. It allows non-permanent members of the company or team to manage or delete posted tasks and notifications. It was a big problem for us that every member was able to delete or edit something posted by another and we felt the need to remedy this. We encountered a situation in which a member of the board deleted every task which he was assigned, which was a lot. We found ourselves trying to refill all the boards so that our stakeholders could have complete visibility of our tasks, a matter which concerned our finances and overall schedule. 

For this reason we made use in the bank of Microsoft Planner, which we already had in place. It has a feature that prevents others from deleting or editing notifications posted by another. This is nice to have when one must deal with six picky stakeholders.

As for the user interface, I am glad that Trello does not make alterations to this. I like that the buttons and colors which appear in a consistent manner and this is one of the reasons that I remain with Trello. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been working with Trello for nearly five years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The software is very stable. It never crossed my mind that there was a need for support or that something was working improperly. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We have had no need for technical support. 

How was the initial setup?

The installation was extremely straightforward. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I use the free version of Trello. It is sufficient for my day to day use. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Although I had evaluated Monday as well as another solution, I decided that Trello was the way to go, as I had been using it for quite a while. 

What other advice do I have?

Trello is cloud-based. 

For use as a personal board I rate Trello as a ten out of ten.
