Trello is arguably one of the best tools to help you stay organised. If you love having a quick overview of all your tasks, enjoy customisation options and checklists – you’ll love this nifty tool! Need more convincing? We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite features for you.

What is Trello?

Trello, an Atlassian product, is a visual collaboration tool that gives teams a shared perspective on any project. You can create boards, lists and cards to organise and prioritise your work. According to Wikipedia, the name Trello is derived from the word "trellis" which had been a code name for the project at its early stages.

Descriptive task cards

Each card can include a text description, checklist, file attachments, comments and more.

"Trello is lightweight and great for managing projects with large teams. It's intuitive and allows you to customise each task's card which is necessary when doing different types of work on a daily basis. It allows for a good collaborative working environment so everyone involved on a given task or project can all be on the same page." - Brent, UI Manager

A variety of attachment options

Want to add a Google Drive doc to a card? No problem! You can add attachments from the following sources:

  • Your Computer
  • Trello

Intuitive mobile app

Here at Byte Orbit, we love the flexibility of hybrid working, which is why we need apps to suit our lifestyle. Trello’s mobile app makes it easy to stay on top of things, even when you’re on the go.

Adding members is easy

Users can be added by simply putting their email address in. You’re also able to add members outside of your organisation.

Searchable database

There are a number of labels and searching filters available to help you locate the desired file in less than no time.

“I loathe scrolling back in history, which makes the ability to filter and search for cards so useful.” - Khanya, UI Designer

Notifications are seamless

Trello’s notifications make it so easy to stay on top of things. You can customise your notifications to receive an email after every update, including when a comment is made, tasks are removed or as a deadline reminder. If you’re using the Trello app, you’ll receive push notifications – so handy!

“Trello's easy notifications provide an easy-to-digest overview of the changes, updates or comments made by team members on various projects. In the mornings, I'm able to have a quick look before I deep dive into each notification, after I've had a sip of my coffee.” - Tahlea, Marketing Coordinator

As you can tell, our marketing and UI teams are big fans of Trello, and it’s easy to see why! Liked this post? Then you should check out our 5 Digital marketing tools for entrepreneurs article too.
