The reality of the matter is, the world is only becoming more mobile, and more cluttered. With emails piling up in your inbox, apps pushing notifications through every few moments, and group text conversations blowing up from last weekend's festivities, it's no wonder why many people have technology paralysis and can't seem to complete a simple project or task.
Enter Trello. Alright, yes, this is another technology tool, that has the potential of cluttering up your life, but used properly, it can bring order to the chaos of your computer and phone.
Trello is Workflow
Using a series of “Board”, “Lists”, and “Cards”, the workflow is in the hand of the board administrator. Trello’s layout and design follows a vertical and horizontal project structure. Task can be listed moving down the page, and lists span across the page horizontally. Through simple drag and drop features, tasks can move through a pipeline, down a list, or restructured in a matter of seconds.
Trello is Team Communication
Trello uses a feed system that makes communication and collaboration a breeze. Within each card, an ongoing feed keeps the conversation on topic, brief, and transparent. Using an “@” symbol followed by a collaborator’s handle will alert the correspondent that there is new activity pertaining to them on the card. Invite specific team members, clients, or collaborators to an entire board, or even just a single card.
Trello is Mobile
Truly cross platform, Trello is a web API, desktop application, and mobile friendly app. Push notifications keep lines of communication open at all times, and teams can update on the go, and pick back up a project from any technology platform.
