Time Management and Communication Hack: Trello

Posted on April 28 2017 | Author: Sophie Wotten

In any organization, it is critical to optimize employee's time and skills. Organizations are continually looking for a way to streamline processes and improving communication within a team.

Trello is a solution that can simplify the way your team communicates. Whether you are working from home, another province or in the office, you are able to collaborate and organize projects from anywhere, anytime! Trello is a free project management tool that is easy to sign up for on your web browser. It provides a simple and sophisticated way to organize projects. As a visual learner myself, the project plans it creates are easy to follow and fun at the same time.

Trello makes it very easy to collaborate on various projects. The user is able to create a "board" which is known as the specific project. Once the board is created, the user can invite team members that are also working on the project. As an organization, you are able to create several boards for your staff, depending on the tasks at hand, and there is no limit!

Completing projects is more than just checking an item off your "to-do" list. Each project involves planning, development, revision and communication. It takes an entire team’s devotion to making a single project successful. Trello provides a platform to consolidate ideas and assist the best outcomes possible. It is a great tool that moves projects forward and can assist with keeping your staff on track.

Since using the Trello system, it has become a great system to use not only at work but also at home as well. Here are some of the features that make this system function for me.

Keyboard Shortcuts: Just like using your laptop, there are specific shortcuts designed to save you time and frustration. These functions are as easy as moving a board, creating a new list and pasting items.

Copy and Paste Multiple Items: Trello has the capability to copy and paste items from Excel and Word. It also can separate each line item into its own checklist – re-typing information no more!

Turn Emails into Action Items: Trello makes organizing your time and work tasks easy by transforming emails into board items – saving time from having to look for that "one" email.

Export to Excel: Exporting to Excel can generate a snapshot of a project or provide a status update.  is a fantastic way to take a snapshot of a specific project or the status of your workload. Before a meeting, you can easily download the information and a workflow chart.

Trello is a very user-friendly system with multiple capabilities. Once learning of this organizational tool, I have not used any other system. These few features have made using Trello stand out from its competitors. So why do I like using Trello more than any other project organizer?

 

  1. It is simple and very user-friendly.
  2. It's free! Once you sign up using your email address, you can start using Trello immediately. The system provides great tutorial videos making the learning process very simple.
  3. Trello can be used on any size of screen. It does not matter if you are using your cell phone, tablet or computer; the Trello site actually looks like an app!
  4. If you are working on a project in a team, you do not want to wait to review updates a day later. With Trello, it provides real time updates!
  5. Trello is compatible with other programs such as Excel and Word. Instead of typing in lists individually, you are able to import the list into Trello and it creates a new chart or checklist for you.

Trello is a great organizational tool that can assist with team communication and project management. Its user-friendly capabilities can allow for staff to learn the system easily. With numerous features that can assist with time management, Trello could benefit your team with their next project. If you are looking for an easy to use tool to help organize your workload, maybe Trello could work for you too!
