Trello, a great tool for collaboration and project management!
In today’s video, I give you a quick look at Trello, my favorite tool for collaboration and project management. It’s even great as a To Do App! (I use it for planning these blog posts and the accompanying episodes).
Trello is a tool that you can start using very quickly. It’s very self-explanatory. By moving cards around between lists, you can give them another meaning. For example, when you have a Backlog List, a To Do List, an In Progress List, and a Completed List, just by moving cards from one list to the other you can change the status. That’s so easy!
When you work in a team, you can assign team members to cards, and because everybody collaborates on the same board, everybody can see who’s doing what at any time. Not only that, but it’s also a great way to communicate with team members. Suppose you are working on an action that is described in a card, then you can ask one of your co-workers to have a look at something that you are dealing with. You don’t have to email or call. You just send the message from within Trello, and your co-worker can have a look. Every team member can look at the board in different ways. You can, for example, filter the board so you can only see tasks (cards) assigned to you.
There’s much more possible in Trello; I think it’s a great tool. Especially because the free version offers you almost everything you need. It’s almost too good to be true.
Today is just a quick look, but in a future video, I will go into much more detail. I will then demonstrate how Trello works. So stay tuned for that!
