[We review Agile tools. Have you seen our Agile tools list?]
As more and more tools are being released to help people personally or in software development, I’m finding that some of the most fun tools to use are those that are not only simple, but aesthetically pleasing to use as well – Having JUST the right amount of neat features that don’t get in the way.
[Enter]: Trello – UBER Simple Collaboration and Task Management
After you sign up, jump right on in. The first board you’ll see is a walk-through board. Every single task on the board tells you some of the things you can do with Trello. I found this feature to be really helpful. No need to click through another walk-through of all the features. They are all right there!
And that’s pretty much all you need to know:
Summary? Well you have 3 things…
A board is a just a collection of lists (and lists hold the cards). You’ll probably want a board for each project you’re working on. You can add and start using a new board in seconds. You can glance at a board and get a handle on the status of any project.
Lists can be just simple lists, but they are most powerful when they represent a stage in a process. Simply drag your lists into place to represent your workflow. Move a card from one list to the next to show your progress.
Cards are tasks. You make a card to track something you or your team needs to get done. You can add attachments, embed video, assign users, add due dates, make checklists, or you can just add your card to a board with no fuss and no overhead, and know exactly what work needs to get done.
And there you go. See the video below for more fun stuff you can do with this app!
