Zenkit

The project management tool that grows with you

5.0/5
About

Zenkit is a tool you can use to organize anything: Collaborate with your team, track projects, build databases, or simply manage your personal to-do lists. Zenkit is flexible enough to fit any workflow, and powerful enough to run your business on.

Would you recommend this product?

Using Zenkit for a few months now and can't see myself going back to my old tool. The team has done a phenominal job of building an application that addresses the need of power users, light users, and everything in between.

Pros:

Kanban on steroids, constantly innovating new features, everything Trello was missing and much more, several ways to view your work.

Cons:

Offline and app access can still be a bit funky with syncing at times

Edited my review to reflect the awesome response time to problem I encountered. Incredible, hard working team and their app reflects the care and dedication they have put into Zenkit. Keep up the great work, Zenkit!

Pros:

Innovative concept, generous free plan, dedication to making it a rock solid application.

Cons:

Had an issue with a bug, but the team fixed it within hours.

Hi Yasmin, I'm the one who spoke with you on Facebook when you were having problems. The team was doing a scaling upgrade on the 10th. They chose a time that would make the least impact (Sunday the 10th), but unfortunately it affected some users. The good news is that Zenkit should be much faster now and future updates should not affect users. Please let me know if there's anything else that we can help you with.

I am using Zenkit with my team for a year now. I use it as a CRM system and an editorial calendar. It offers a nice overview, so my team always knows what to do and when to do it.

Pros:

Great tool for project management. Easy handling and great for my team. Love it!

Cons:

Waiting for mobile

I've moved to Zenkit from Trello. I find it superior at all the Kanban pieces, and the increased flexibility is a significant improvement for my workflows.

I can configure different "collections" to work in different ways - a quick board view like Trello, or list and grid views.

The mind map view is really good when doing an ideation session to get your ideas down, and then consolidate later.

The custom swimlanes are very good two.

The idea of being able to dynamically switch your swimlanes and columns to whatever you want is brilliant.

Pros:

Flexibility of display, custom labels and options, powerful custom fields

Cons:

No API available yet

Zenkit is the greatest tool out there for personal and project management. Great UI, simple structure and really intuitive but extremely powerful at the same time! I started to use it for my personal Todo’s a while ago as I had more and more on my schedule and now I have begun using it for project management. Everyone go and check it out, I’m sure you’ll love it and it’ll make your life easier!

Pros:

Simplicity, Overall functionality

Cons:

None

Zenkit allows me to manage my own development project. Setting deadlines and uploading documentation. It's way more flexible than Trello/Jira, IMHO.

Pros:

A simple, but powerful product management tool.

Cons:

Nothing really, maybe a deeper Google integration.

Great idea. We're always looking to integrate with other services. Google is obviously a top priority.

They are listening! Features are being added thoughtfully and team is responsive to requests.

Pros:

flexible, easily scaleable, customizable, and getting better at every turn!

Cons:

Gmail integration (on the way I'm told). Using zapier for now.

This is awesome! I've wanted desktop apps forever. Great job guys! Quick add is definitely going to be my go-to shortcut. Are they native apps?

Pros:

switching modus

Cons:

none so far

Although some features are hidden well (had to ask support twice, but they responded fast and it only confirmed the functionality I looked for was there), I love Zenkit. Their standard features and the clean interface just make it a no brainer for me to pick Zenkit over Trello. Really eager to learn how their product develops in terms of functionality.

Pros:

Unlimited custom fields, clean interface, different views (Kanban, list, table, calendar), the mobile and desktop apps

Cons:

None :)

This is a very complete product that helps you keep your organization focused.

It's simple yet powerful.

Some parts of the screen are not very well crafted. The UI of the popup is a little bit ugly (of course it's not an issue, just a point).

Pros:

Simple, clean, full of features (more than trello), card references, polymorphic and customizable card structure, multiple views

Cons:

Limitation of team members (less than trello), some ugly UI elements

Overall a great app with awesome performance!

Pros:

Ease of use, well sorted out, keeps getting better with every update

Cons:

iOS app could be better
