A Trello Review for You [Things We Like & Don’t Like about This Tool]


If you’re searching for project management and productivity tools to help your business thrive, then Trello is one to consider. However, just like with any other software on the internet, this tool has its fair share of pros and cons to consider before completely diving in head first. Greyphin’s Trello review aims to shed light on the things we like and don’t like about this tool so that business owners can glean more insight prior to making a decision to move forward with implementation.

If you’re unfamiliar with Trello, that’s too bad. Just kidding. As always, we’ll highlight exactly what the tool’s all about and then take a plunge into the pros and cons below.

What is Trello?

If your business has a variety of people working on the same - or different - projects all at once, then you should invest in a collaboration tool like Trello. Trello is a Kanban-style app that allows  users to view what projects are being worked on and who on the team is working on said projects. This helps teams understand the status of a project and if it is on track to meet a deadline. 

It’s pretty simple, really - but it’s very useful nonetheless.

Pros of Using Trello

There are plenty of advantages to using Trello. These include: 


Of course, if you’re searching for a good collaboration tool, chances are you need to improve organization with your team. Trello is a great way to keep track of tasks and projects as they’re being worked on by your team members. 


The bright, colorful layouts provided by Trello make this app easy to look at and also easy to use. Those new to this tool will begin with boards, lists, and cards, but there are more features to be discovered as you get more familiar with the app.


What’s better than a robot doing work for you? Trello’s Butler offers built-in automation features to help your team take care of common and repetitive tasks so that focus can be placed on more important things that need to get done.


Another thing we need to note in our Trello review is the fact that it can be integrated with other tools and apps. Some apps that can be connected to your Trello account include:

  • Slack
  • Google Drive
  • Dropbox
  • Evernote
  • and more!

Cons of Using Trello

While there are many great things about this app, here are some of the cons that come along with using Trello.

No Offline Mode

While this may not be a make-or-break point for some, for others, having an offline mode for the tools they use the most is crucial. For one, if there are tasks that need to be done but there isn’t an internet connection, and offline mode would provide users with the ability to still access their tasks or view the status of a project. Without an offline mode, users don’t currently have the ability to do so.

It Can Get Messy

As we said above, this tool is eye-catching and easy-to-use. But user-friendliness doesn’t mean that things can’t get messy in the long run. If you have a lot of projects with a lot of smaller tasks involved, your lists can get long and hard to keep track of. That is, of course, unless you have a team of creative people that can come up with a solution to make other lists or boards to prevent this type of overload from occurring. It just depends on your team and the amount of work at hand.

Pricing Structure

For those who have a small team or not many tasks to keep track of, then this may not necessarily apply to you. However, the pricing structure of Trello is based on a per-user structure. If you’re looking for an Enterprise account with added security, controls, and all the bells and whistles, things can add up quickly.
