Trello – Simple Collaboration with Cards and free


Share on LinkedIn

I have been invited to participate in a software beta test which is using an online tool called Trello to coordinate test feedback. Trello is very simple and powerful and sits halfway between a forum and a wiki. It is a great tool for capturing and structuring feedback from a community in a really easy way and very compatible with a bioteams style of working.

Trello. Organise Anything.

The first thing you do in Trello is to create a “board” which is simply a topic you wish to engage people on.

Next you invite people to join your board.

Once they have joined they can create cards, vote on other people cards and assign cards to people for action. When you click on a card you can see text or a list or a picture or any kind of web link.Trello runs over the web and also on smartphones and tablets.

There are so many potential uses for Trello – here are some which the developers suggest:

  • Event Plannning
  • Software Development
  • Personal To-Dos
  • Publishing
  • Recruiting and Consulting

In terms of pricing the developers say that Trello “will be free forever but that they may add pay-only features in the future, but everything that’s free today will be free tomorrow and forever.”

Heres a nice short Trello video on youtube to get you started:
