Intuitive Project Management with Trello
There are many project management applications on the market that help you manage from simple, one person projects, to complex ones where all kind of departments and professionals are involved. Some of them have all the functionality needed but those get so complicated that are pretty hard to manage and are time consuming when comes about simple yet powerful actions. This is why there is always need of a simple but very intuitive application that can make your project management process to be seen like playing with tools rather then getting an headache understanding them.
In my search for such a software I have tested a lot of online solutions that keep up with trends, that may work on any device and also do their job in a simple way like it should. And, for my happiness, I also found one that I will need to present as it is very well done and seems the developers of it really know what they are doing. It is called Trello and works on any screen size and there are also available as an iPhone and Android App.
What can you do with Trello?
Don’t forget a thing
Add a checklist to keep on top of all those little to-dos. There’s also a nice, big progress meter, because who doesn’t love a nice, big progress meter?
Your files, right where you need them
Got a relevant file, image, or document? Attach it right to the card, and you’ll never have to go scrambling through your inbox looking for it later.
Bring your board to life
Attach photos, drawings, sketches, and mockups to quickly illustrate ideas at a glance.
Find cards easily
Customize labels for your cards, and use filters to only show what you want. You can also filter by keywords and by person (if you’re on a team).
Never miss a deadline
Attach a date and it will appear on the front of the card. When that date is approaching, it will turn yellow as a gentle reminder.
See into the past
Trello keeps a record of everything that’s happened on the card: comments, changes, additions. You’ll never wonder “How did that happen?” again.
Get everyone onboard
Invite as many people as you want to a board. Board members can all add cards, make changes, upload attachments, and more.
Collaborate in real-time
Changes made by others appear instantaneously on your screen. You never have to wait for a page to reload to see the latest.
Stay in the loop
Email notifications and an activity log keep you informed of the latest changes. You can also subscribe to specific cards to get timely information on what you care about the most.
Assign cards to board members, and everyone will be able to see what everyone else is working on. The assigned folks also get handy notifications sent to them.
Board members can vote on cards, so you know what everyone’s priorities are. Gain insight into what the team thinks and make informed decisions.
Everything in one place
Create a Trello organization to collect all your people and boards together in one place.
What is really good about Trello is that it is FREE and also user oriented. Is is made with passion and you will find nice ways to expand your experience with Trello in case you want to be part of the project development because you can use the developer API to create custom code and modules.
