2. Lists: This further keeps the various stages of progress organised. It can serve as a workflow where cards are moved across lists from start to finish, or simply act as a place to keep track of ideas and information. The number of lists one can add to a board is limitless, and they can be arranged however you like.


3. Cards: As mentioned, cards make up the board on Trello. Cards represent tasks and ideas to keep you focused and productive. A card represents what needs to get done. To use it, Just click “Add a card…” at the bottom of any list to create a new card, and give it a name as you want.


Users also customise cards to hold a wide variety of useful information by clicking on them. Add as many cards as you like.


4. Menu: Located on the right side, it serves as the mission control center for boards. It allows users to manage members, control settings, filter cards, and enable Power-Ups. Also, view all of the activity that has taken place on a board in the menu’s activity feed.


There is so much more users can achieve with Trello, start using it today. You can as well connect to other productivity apps like Slack from Trello.
