More Trello Pros →

Cons
"Not a suitable solution for complex projects.""It would be great to have better email integration so that you could have all of your inboxes consolidated there.""While great, the shareable boards lack some features that normal boards possess and that’s a big burden for us.""We'd like to see less downtime.""The web page can be a bit buggy at times, especially after I switch to a different tab and then come back to the Monday site after leaving it idle for a few minutes.""I do wish that admins could edit everything, no matter who created a post/board/subitems, etc.""It would be quite cool if it could connect to my Outlook calendar and put the project deadlines in there.""The new Apple Mac Book Pro lineup was launched more than two years ago and still, this platform is not compatible with the Mac App."

More monday.com Cons →

"Having more integration with third party tools is an area for improvement in Trello. It would also be nice if it has a voice messaging functionality similar to what you have in WhatsApp, for quicker communication with colleagues.""It's really simple, which is a good thing, but it only does one thing for us.""As a team board it did not work well for us.""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.""There aren't as many tracking tools.""If there are pre-done templates or suggested templates for various fields, they would be helpful for me as a coach.""Pricing can be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I wasn't involved with the licensing, but I believe it's negotiable."
  • "The solution is quite inexpensive. For example, we pay $8,500 for 75 users. It's somewhere around $100 a user, approximately."
  • "The project manager would be responsible for any licensing fees. As an end-user, we just follow suit."
  • "Fees are paid monthly per user."
  • "The price is reasonable for the number of users we have."
  • "I am using its free version."
  • "We tell others it's about $2200 for a ten-person plan and it can be adjusted; it's easy to scale."
  • More monday.com Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "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."
  • "I use the free version of Trello, which is sufficient for my day to day use."
  • "I am tinkering with the free version."
  • "The free version of Trello covers all of the bases and all of our needs, so there's no cost involved for us. This is surprising for such a quality platform with no limitations on the key functionalities, though it also has a paid version."

    Hi Netanya, 


    If you want to reach a quick-wins at the portfolio level with an intelligent algorithmic and automated approach please look at my favourite tool called Aangine. 


    It gives you capabilities to run multiple What-if scenarios at the portfolio level, considering various constraints on capacity, budgets, timing and prioritization. It helps PMOs/SPMs very quickly to perform risk & value analysis and run impacts analysis to see what happens if suddenly priorities/capacity/budget will be changed. Visibility on future horizons, possibly bottlenecks and risks gives you the opportunity to compare and run an intelligent algorithm to optimise your future portfolio within a new reality immediately. As an outcome, in the first couple of quarters, you will get significant results on your execution side of the way of working.


    Regarding the execution part of the delivery for the corporate customers, I would recommend Micro Focus PPM review.

    Kind regards,
    I. Bayraktar

    I’ve used Trello, Asana, and Monday.com. 


    My favorite by far is ClickUp due to following reasons:


    1. It’s inexpensive. 


    2. Support is great. 


    3. Very flexible - we do sprints with points and it’s great for this. 


    4. They are constantly launching new improvements. 


    5. Most important - my team loves ClickUp and actually uses it! We particularly like the goals feature.

    Jira is what we currently use and I have no complaints about it at all.

    Since 1998 I have been using the Planisware project portfolio management solution for multiple pharma organizations. 


    The application initially had the esoteric name OPX2. For easier international name recognition, its name sensibly became Planisware in 2009 with the release of P5. Subsequent releases of Planisware P5 and Planisware P6 (or V6) and currently Planisware Enterprise (E7) have brought substantive improvements to the stakeholder community in user interface, capabilities, reporting, and performance. 


    Planisware documentation has evolved markedly with more frequent publishing of detailed functional guides, videos, and release notes, available online for customers and from within the application. For example, the fifth set of release notes for E7, specifically 7.0.4; March 2022, is 133 pages long. Planisware Academy is another tool for gaining proficiency with project and portfolio management. 


    What I especially enjoy with Planisware is unsurpassed flexibility for managing project activities--not just as list tables and Gantt charts, but also with Kanban cards, roadmaps, stage and gates, deliverables, ideas, etc. Modules for resource management and cost management have similar depth of execution. Another module for tracking risks and opportunities is selectable when needed.


    Planisware's implementation of activity types as a discrete breakdown structure facilitates the use of consistent, defined activities across projects and improves the accuracy of planning.


    Project templates and activity library features are valuable for creating new projects more efficiently.


    Data visualization is another Planisware strongpoint. It's possible to make dynamic slide presentations of working projects.


    Given the depth and breadth of Planisware modules and the software's overall capabilities, each corporate organization has to make a long-term commitment to adopting Planisware. Providing stakeholders the opportunity to gain needed proficiencies with Planisware is also essential for reaping the considerable benefits of using this fascinating enterprise solution.

    I have experience with Asana. It's an easy-to-use and configure solution, especially for medium and non-complex plans.

    David Tate, PMP - PeerSpot reviewerDavid Tate, PMP

    The real question is: what type of Project/Portfolio Management system do I need? 


    The Trello, Asana, and Monday.com types of products tend to be a bit more lightweight. Sometimes, they lack the structure that a more robust system such as Project Online or Project for the Web can offer. 


    If the organization is small(er) and or only a few individuals will be utilizing the system, then the former may work well. If a large(r) organization and many PMs /Portfolio Managers, compliance issues, etc., a more mainstream Project? A Portfolio Management approach may be needed. Look into a bigger player in the market. 


    Take a look at the Gartner reviews for additional suggestions as to what level and type of system may be the right one for your organization.

    Reviews from Real Users

    monday.com stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its task status feature and its ability to integrate with external apps. PeerSpot users take note of the advantages of these features in their reviews:

    Ben D., Front End Developer at a marketing services firm, writes of the product, “Their flagship feature, what used to be called the pulse, is great. Pulse offers great management. Being able to see everything at a glance and check task status, is wonderful. They use subtasks and the simple aspects of task management have been really helpful.”

    Another PeerSpot reviewer, the Head of Projects at Smart Media SA, notes, “The boards offer an amazing and clear view of my tasks, campaigns, and progress. Automations especially with Slack and Outlook help with keeping my team up-to-date always. Graphs and charts are valuable for reporting purposes and to track progress made. Workforms/surveys are valuable and a very cool added feature.”

    Trello is the visual collaboration tool that creates a shared perspective on any project. Trello’s boards, lists and cards enable you to organize and prioritize your personal and work life in a fun, flexible and rewarding way.
