Lots of us have our own ways of keeping track of everything that’s happening in our lives. However, if you want to digitize and keep all of the things you’re trying to stay on top of in one place, Trello would be a great place to do so.
While it is best known as a project management tool, there’s so much more to Trello than what lots of other people use it for. So much so that some users believe it can help you organize your entire life in a single account. It might sound like an exaggeration but with the right techniques, you can really get a lot out of this free collaboration tool.
As a project management tool, it’s most popularly used for project collaboration. It uses a list system called ‘cards’ where collaborators can add links, documents, checklists, photos, and comments. You can label each card with colors and add deadline dates. It’s designed to help users monitor and contribute to the progress of a project at a single glance.
Due to its impressive use of lists, you can also utilize Trello for personal goals and tasks. It works like a sticky note that you can arrange on a corkboard, giving you a nice visual presentation of the stuff you have to remember. It’s just better because you can search for, edit, share and get reminders for each entry.
You can also turn Trello into your personal planner. You can create daily to-do lists and recurring checklists. It will require you to link it with other web apps to get the job done, however.
Available in three packages (Free, Business Class, and Enterprise), you also have options in which features you’ll like to get from this web tool. Despite its relatively limited features, the Free package already meets the needs of many users – including those who use it for collaborative work. So with this, you can already be guaranteed that you’ll get a lot from this project management tool.
