I have a lot of big projects this summer. I have an independent study to plan a syllabus for, I need to research PHD programs, I need to keep track of my knitting designs, I need to plan my thesis, and I need to keep track of our progress with de-cluttering the house. I was looking everywhere for a good system that would allow me to have the flexibilty to organize mulitple projects all in one place. I found Trello! After using it and making progress towards my goals I thought it was a great site to share with all of you.
When you arrive at the page you can scroll down to learn more. To actually try it out, you’ll need an account.
To register click the blue Sign Up – It’s Free button in the middle of the page or the green Sign Up button at the top right of the page, both of which will whisk you away to the registration form. There you can select to sign up with your Google Account or fill out the form with your name, e-mail address, and create a password. I chose to log in with my Google account.
Once you’re logged in, I recommend that you click on the Welcome Board. This functions as the tutorial board. Read the boards from right to left and click on the cards to interact with them. I really like that as you work your way through the cards on the welcome board that you learn how to use them, but also that they provide links to resources and the FAQ.
To add a board once you’re done click the + button at the top of the page. This will give you the option to choose to create a new board or a new organization. I chose new board and started with one project at a time. Once I added all the necessary boards, I clicked + again and chose new organization. This way I had everything ready to go and could organize it all at once.
This site provides a very cool way to keep track of your projects and stay organized at the same time. Check it out today!
