great tool for organizing

// Sustain at Ally

What do you like about Kanban Tool?

i liked the tool because of its simplistic but powerful design. I've don't believe i have maximized the tools use/purpose yet since i'm currently using it for personal needs but i don't believe i can accomplish the tasks i've done in recent months without this tool. i also liked that is has a phone app, so i can work on my PC and phone when on the go.

What do you dislike about Kanban Tool?

for now, the pricing
as this is more for my personal use and not really for a full scrum/sprint use, i hope they have a tier level pricing or like a packaged price for a period of time (year, months)

What have you been using it for and what problems did Kanban Tool solve?

I have been using this primarily for organizing my work and personal things, it helped solved my problem of listing task but not really showing me the progress and who it is waiting/pending on.

Irreplaceable

// Account Manager at Akiko Star

Since I first started using KanbanTool I just fell in love with its simplicity. I can't imagine working without it in my team now. Everyone found the software very intuitive and it helped us to divide tasks and collaborate more efficiently. And it is just as awesome for private tasks as it is for work!

Does the job with no added nonsense


It's the easiest to use kanban project management app that we've tried at the office. Others got us fed up after a few days, while this one we stuck with. There is no extra effort or particularly intense thinking needed to get our projects up on these boards. The overview is clear and neat. We recently started to also use the "hidden" features like recurring tasks and own scripts to make the boards precisely how we need it. The customization options are VAST. Could do with a nicer mobile app, we were told by their Support that it is on the way : ) Overall - top marks and full recommendation.

My new friend ;)


I started using Kanban Tool when my previous tool's price became too high for me. And it's great choice :)
What's good? It's simplicity, being easy and very supportive. I like the time tracking function, it helps me in controlling my co-workers work time without being too intrusive.
What's bad? The thing that I've to pay, I would love to have it free but this price's still much more friendly than these of other tools I know.
