Trello Room for Improvement

There aren't as many tracking tools.

If you use Agile as a methodology, Trello doesn't really fit very well. It cannot run at the speed of the team or show pending tasks and backlogs as well. Those types of features aren't really on Trello. Something such as Jira is much more adept at Agile.

The product doesn't handle heavy loads very well. The information does not load quickly once there's a lot of information in the system. IT needs some sort of load balancer to allow it to take on more information and load more quickly.

  1. Video call and messaging for the online conference: 2020 was the time for remote working and online conferencing while social distancing deterred people from going out. I think, as an online collaboration tool, Trello should include an online meeting feature as it would allow members to meet, discuss, and share ideas.
  2. Analytics: Trello could add an analytic tool that allows me to see the performance of each team member, answering questions like whether they meet the deadline or miss the deadline. Besides, I want to know the time spent on each project and the potential issues that occurred.

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.

Pricing can be improved. Maybe it would be better if they offered some extra tiers, so you don't have to go all the way up to the pro level. We're using the integrations on the other side, and I think you only get some of the things if you're not subscribed at a higher level. You only get a certain amount of features. For example, they have this thing called the Butler, and unless you're at a pro-level, you can only use one Butler feature. You have to pay more to unlock certain features.
