GitLab Issue Boards vs. Trello
Work with your team
With GitLab your entire team has access to the project's Issue Boards.
Multiple Issue Boards
Asana let's you create multiple tasks lists. GitLab Multiple Issue Boards, available on GitLab Enterprise Edition, also makes it possible, improving your workflow by grouping different lists in multiple boards.
Create new issues from the board
With GitLab Issue Boards, you can create issues directly from the board and assign multiple labels allowing them to appear on multiple boards. With Asana you can create new tasks from each list but not assign them to multiple lists.
Add multiple issues to the board
From an Issue Board, you can add multiple issues to lists in the board by selecting one or more existing issues.
Keep focused on what's important
Trello is a good task manager with the ability to create cards about everything. With Issue Boards, you focus on getting the job done by organizing and prioritizing your issues.
Consistent labels structure
An Issue Board is based on its project's label structure, therefore, it applies the same descriptive labels to indicate placement on the board. GitLab Issue Boards not just position issue cards in a column, but also allows them to be in multiple boards and still have meaning without the context of a particular board.
