Slack vs Trello: What are the differences?
Developers describe Slack as "Bring all your communication together in one place". Imagine all your team communication in one place, instantly searchable, available wherever you go. That’s Slack. All your messages. All your files. And everything from Twitter, Dropbox, Google Docs, Asana, Trello, GitHub and dozens of other services. All together. On the other hand, Trello is detailed as "Your entire project, in a single glance". Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what's being worked on, who's working on what, and where something is in a process.
Slack can be classified as a tool in the "Group Chat & Notifications" category, while Trello is grouped under "Project Management".
Some of the features offered by Slack are:
- Create open channels for the projects, groups and topics that the whole team shares.
- Search with context
- Autocomplete makes mentioning your teammates quick and painless.
On the other hand, Trello provides the following key features:
- Add a checklist to keep on top of all those little to-dos. There’s also a nice, big progress meter, because who doesn’t love a nice, big progress meter?
- Got a relevant file, image, or document? Attach it right to the card, and you’ll never have to go scrambling through your inbox looking for it later.
- Attach photos, drawings, sketches, and mockups to quickly illustrate ideas at a glance.
"Easy to integrate with", "Excellent interface on multiple platforms" and "Free" are the key factors why developers consider Slack; whereas "Great for collaboration", "Easy to use" and "Free" are the primary reasons why Trello is favored.
According to the StackShare community, Slack has a broader approval, being mentioned in 4795 company stacks & 3481 developers stacks; compared to Trello, which is listed in 2181 company stacks and 1770 developer stacks.
