We have recently introduced Review: section here on Enfew.
In it we are taking a closer look at some great and useful web and mobile app projects. Get in touch if you want your product to be reviewed in this section on our blog.
This time we are exploring Trello – nice and easy to use tool for managing projects.
What is Trello?
Trello is a project management and collaboration tool that organizes your projects and ideas into boards.
Its as simple as having the board for each project with the lists and cards on them.
With minimalistic and intuitive drag & drop interface you can move cards from one list to another as your project progresses. There can be as many or as few lists as you decide.
Being collaboration a tool Trello allows you to add people to the project by simply finding them through the search field.
You can assign cards to specific people, add comments, to do lists and attach files.
Trello supports archiving, and sharing via shortened url’s.
And it is free online product.
How to start?
Sign up process is quite fast and smooth. You can create account by specifying name, email and password (email confirmation process is required) or simply use your Google credentials to log in. Once logged in with new account you will see an empty board list and your new project board is just a click away (click New Board link below your profile photo).
What else is good about it?
We ourselves use Trello for many projects. All the content calendar and any technical improvements needed for Enfew.com are currently being maintained via Trello. We just like simplicity and collaboration options this tool has. Trello now has mobile applications for iOS (iPhones and iPads) and Android powered phones.
And yes, being free it reduces costs for our team as well.
