One major point of discontent was that it was difficult to see the tasks associated with the story. Tasks were captured as checklist items on the story card, but it is not easily viewable on the task board. One need to open up the card just to see the tasks. While this can be slightly mitigated through the use of “Next Step for Trello” extension, we still faced with the challenge of identifying which team member is working on which task and the task status.

Till Trello starts to introduce horizontal swimlanes, it will not be a good option for a team needing to clearly see the story and tasks association and status.
