Adding your first board
A board is a product, project, resource, or organizational structure that is under continuous development, though a board can represent anything and have a variety of uses. Boards have a collection of lists, and lists contain cards.
Creating a New Board
Create a new board by clicking the "+" in the header and selecting "New Board…".
Here's an empty board. It's not really doing anything:
After adding a few lists, we start to get somewhere:
Now we add cards to the board to bring our project together:
Lists don't have to be about workflow. Sometimes you need a list just to collect ideas:
Pro Tip: Want to add pictures to cards like what you see above? Try attaching an image to a card. This will automatically create a card cover.
Cards represent the basic unit of a board and can move from list to list to indicate progression:
Click or tap on a card to open it. We call this viewing the "back" of the card:
Working with others
It's perfectly fine to use Trello on your own, but it really shines when you collaborate with others. To add members to a board, select "Add Members..." from the board menu. Search for a user by name or enter an email address and click their name to invite them to the board. If they are not a member you can invite them to Trello by entering their name and email and by clicking "Send". They must accept the invite before being able to interact with the board (move, edit, add cards, etc.).
