Key features

Trello is useful for organizing projects of any size. Create checklists, add comments, upload file attachments, and due dates, and more. Invite people to your board. Drag and drop people to cards to divvy up tasks.

The Welcome Board will provide you with lots of information about how to use Trello

  • Basics – will explain about cards and how you can add links and images to them
  • Intermediate – will help you add team members, order and allocate cards
  • Advanced – will provide you with some additional tips and tricks


You can easily create

  • a Board – a collection of cards ordered in a list of lists – useful to manage projects, track resources or organise anything
  • a Personal Team – a group of boards and people
  • a Business Team – this provides additional security and administrative controls 

When you create a Board, you need to first add a list (or lists) , and then to add cards to lists, as in this example below – Personal To Do List.  It’s also easy to see how useful it is to be able to move cards from list to list.


In the Menu, Trello, also gives you the facility to change the background, filter cards and create power-ups (as shown below).
