Are you wondering how to use Trello? But do you know, what is Trello?
Here is a quick explanation.
Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, it tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process. Imagine a whiteboard, filled with lists of sticky notes, with each note as a task for you and your team.
In today’s blog post, I am going to show how to use this amazing tool.
So, if you are a beginner and don’t know where to start?
Then, keep on reading.
HOW TO SIGN UP IN TRELLO
Let’s start at the very beginning.
If you are new and heard about this organisation tool but don’t know where to start, know that I’ve got you.
So, first, you need to go on THIS WEBSITE and sign up for free!
By the way, Trello is a FREE tool. You can make as many boards as you want and use a lot of their features. You won’t have access to everything unless you upgrade to a paid plan.
But, the truth is that you don’t need a paid plan (just yet)
So, in this video, you will be able to create your Trello account with me.
It’s a tutorial on how to make a content calendar for social media in Trello, but I am also showing you how to create an account and set up your first Trello board.
HOW TO CREATE YOUR FIRST TRELLO BOARD
When your account is set up, you can start creating your very first board.
To do so, click on “Create a new board”.
Now, you have to add a board title.
so, for this example, I will call this board “DEMO”.
However, your first board can be about your GOALS, grocery lists, or whatever things you want to organize.
One of the best things about Trello is that you can customize your boards!
So, after you chose your board title and before you click on that green button.
Head over the white square and choose your board background.
It can be a color or a photo.
You’ve created your first Trello board.
HOW TO MAKE LISTS IN TRELLO BOARDS
It’s time to add your first list on your board.
So, think of the lists like the main thing you want to organize.
For example, if your board is your grocery list. Then, you will make different lists like:
Or you could meal plan and do
Etc. With the grocery, you are going to use each day.
HOW TO MAKE CARDS IN LISTS
Now, you need to add cards to your list.
So, the cards are the things you need to do.
In my demo example, I added the weekdays.
Each day, I am going to add cards that will be the things that I need to achieve during the week.
So, inside each card, you will be able to add:
- A checklist
- Due date
- Attachment and more
And just like that, you learn to start your journey in Trello!
