Trello vs. monday.com: How do they compare?
Get the most out of your Work OS: monday.com is a Trello alternative with all the functionality of a task management tool and then some. Access advanced analytics to make smarter decisions, collaborate with team members on documents in real-time without disrupting their flow, build your own apps, and more.
What can monday.com offer over Trello?
Though Trello's Butler feature can gather card information (such as how many tasks were completed during the week) and export the information into a spreadsheet, they offer limited reporting beyond that. For more robust reporting, you'll need a Trello "power up," a third party app or integration to get the data you need to make smarter decisions. On monday.com, organizations can pull up key performance indicators (KPIs) on budgets, how well team members are performing, how fast tasks get done, and more in just a few clicks.
On monday.com, customers can stay up to date on each project or task without needing to rely on email or chat. Updates allows you to have dynamic conversations about a specific task or project right from inside the board item. With this feature, you can: mention a team member or reply to an update, attach files, request updates from coworkers organization-wide, and more. Trello's project management software currently does not have a way for team members to hold conversations within the context of their work.
On monday.com, you can choose from calendar views, Gantt chart, Kanban, timeline, and more —letting you organize and view information exactly how you want. Choose which columns best suit your needs, no upgrades needed. With their "power ups," Trello allows customers to design cards, but if you want the option to completely customize your board to best manage your project—from adding different columns, summarizing data, creating dashboards, widgets, choosing a board view, and other additional features—monday.com gives users full control over their workflows.
Ability to scale
Trello is great for smaller companies and individual tasks, but you may want to look elsewhere if you manage several projects at once or rely on team collaboration. Trello's Kanban boards show projects in an easily digestible visual format, though boards can become hectic with too many cards. On monday.com, you can view several projects from a single board, each task, and its dependencies (which are collapsable to avoid clutter). Teams can communicate, attach files, update each other, and link boards in one place, easily keeping track of all moving parts.

“Trello is great for single projects, [but] if you work on numerous projects each week and want to track them on a single board, it becomes a bit complicated. It definitely isn't a sub for a heavier PM tool like monday.com."
Kimberlie F | Senior Digital Design, Marketing & Strategy Consultant
"Compared to competition's products like monday.com, the software is not very customizable. It is very hard. User experience definitely needs upgrading. monday.com is far better visually."
Robert W | Web Design and Development
"Sometimes I can spend weeks without gazing at Trello, I wish it was a little bit more like monday.com in terms of colors, and less limited in terms of power ups."
Diego D | Content Producer
"[Trello] is missing the tracking and metrics features of some of the more involved PM apps (like monday.com), which may be helpful to larger organizations who want data on things like completion time, time tracking, calendar, financial tracking, etc."
Julie G | Business owner
"This is a great platform for agile software beginners or the budget-conscious, as you can use Trello for free. However, it does not have the robust capabilities of its competitors like Asana/Jira or monday.com."
verified user | Sporting goods
"Overall, Trello is a great tool. It's user-friendly, very powerful and it works well for our team. If you're wanting something with more muscle, then I'd suggest looking at either monday.com or Airtable."
jared D | Onboarding & Services Manager
"Trello is great at allowing you to organise [your work], it's easy to create and move lists, as well as prioritise tasks. [But] the downside of using Trello is that there are more sophisticated task management softwares out there, such as monday.com with integrated chat etc."
I.E. | Tech Writer in Entertainment
"As a hub for sharing project visuals a team is working on, trello is pretty good. But for task management I tend to prefer leankit or freedcamp or monday.com. These provide you with a timeline and allow you to assign people to certain tasks etc."
