What's Trello

Trello is a productivity application that can be downloaded from the App Store onto your tablet or accessed from any browser. Both methods require the user to create an account. Trello syncs and stores items on the cloud so all devices are up to date. Trello is a simple, flexible tool that can be used to organize daily tasks or manage large events or projects. The application allows you to create customized boards with lists that can be filled with specific tasks.

Tasks can be attached with:

  • Check-lists
  • Images
  • Videos
  • Documents
  • Comments

Trello can also be used for collaboration. Boards can be shared with other Trello users. Specific tasks can be assigned and a log of user activity is documented.
