TrelloTrello

I'm comparing Aha!, Trello and Asana. We are looking for it as a Product Management Team. Jira handles all our development and storyboard etc. This is for Product Management for Roadmaps, Backlogs, future stories, etc. Cost is a factor, as well. Does anyone have a comparison chart of Pros and Cons? Thank you.

I just switched to ClickUp for my development agency - I am the product team, and I relay everything there betwixt designers, devs, and clients.

Clickup = Jira + Confluence but better - more ways to slice and dice your data & documents, make custom views, mind map relationships, and track people's work, plan goals... I even use it to manage project finances and household to-dos.

They have a very comprehensive free tier that never expires, and on top of that they're extremely generous with trials of their paid features, have more-than-fair pricing, and top-notch customer support.

A rapidly growing start-up in the biotech field. Main requirements not limited to, but include - cloud sharing, interacting through comments and messages, being able to specify deadlines, estimated time interval, time-lapsed/remaining, assign multiple tasks (task dependencies), and label their priority level, and have integration with a nice group of tools/apps (google and so on).

Basecamp is a great product for remote teams. It is a mindset. If you're looking for a standard project management tool with lots of features, ClickUp is a great choice. It's a bit slow (especially mobile), but in terms of features, it's unbeatable.

A good collaboration tool was always a big challene in the most team I've met. The main challenge is there are many tools with tons of features. They'r all great in the paper. But in practice, the team usually doesn't enjoy collaborating using them. This is the challenging part. The project management tools should be well designed to keep simplicity in combination with well-chosen features to bring the most productivity and activity among the team. I'm thinking about many of my stacks, ClickUp is one of the few choices which I've never thought about migrating about. I can't describe it in text, I just advise you to try it once and you'll understand. The team behind ClickUp is really active. They really care about delivering new features.

Both Asana and Trello support Kanban style project tracking. Trello is Kanban-only project management, knowledge management, actually card-management tools. Asana is much more complex, supports different project management approaches, well integrated and helpful for any style/type project.

We choose Asana finally, but still some projects kept in Trello

trello has a much simpler interface and easy to learn for any team member. asana might have more features and configuration options but do you really need a complex system for developers to manage tasks?

After Microsoft took over trello, it has become more restricted these days but still good for startups.

Keep it simple! Focus on your product, not tools.
