Trello Project Management

Posted 08 October 2012 - 08:32 PM

Working on several projects at any given time can be a challenging task, even in small groups. I've found a neat little collaboration/organization tool online called Trello. I thought some of you might actually appreciate it's functionality and ease of use.

I would have loved to test this thing but sadly it's not available for me.

Whoops, my mistake. It's available to me now. Going to check it out. ^^

Looks like a very nice collaboration tool! Very playful environment, but it looks like it takes some time to get used to doing stuff. I bet when a team gets the hang of this they'll enjoy it. I'm not going to use it for business apps though. ^^

You bet! There are iOS and Android apps for it too btw. I've been using it and so far no complaints.

There are mobile apps too? Hmm, I'm not sure if that's a good thing if you're really using this at work since this means your boss can nag you even from the comforts of home.

But yeah, for other projects, this is really awesome. I can imagine doing a birthday party or something where I need to collaborate with other people and we get to see in real time if stuff gets done like "John got the cake" and "Lizzy found birthday clothes".

By the way, the ability to chat will likely be a turnoff to companies with an enterprise setup.

Well, your boss is going to find one way or another to contact you :P But yeah the possibilities are plenty.

The team I work with is quite a small one but we're not together most of the times. So it works very well for us. Probably companies with an enterprise setup have other means of organizing and inter-team communication.

So true. Oh well. But of course if they want to contact me they have to show some effort!

Yeah, I'm pining for a loose environment where I can do stuff like this.

I've been using Trello for a little while with my artist friend on projects. He introduced me to it.

I showed it to my boss, who then showed it to my CEO, they liked it so much we now use it in the office for a bunch of stuff.

Lol, well I'm sure it will come up in your next employee review ^^ I just created an Account.

I'll play around with Trello and if I like it enough, I may show it to my Dev Team. Get rid of all the pesky walking between cubicles/emails that don't get responded to/phone calls to find out if people have completed a small task you are waiting on.

Personally I use Asana, it's completely free as well for up to 30 people so it's ideal for small to medium sized companies.

I like the look of Asana, but I am leaning more towards Trello for the simple fact that they have designed mobile usability for Android, not just the iPhone ^^ I'm more impressed by a product that caters to a wide field of users.
