Why can't I create a board?

Boards must be associated with a team. If you are unable to create, move, or copy a board, it’s likely because you do not have permission to do so in your existing Business Class or Enterprise team(s), and/or your free team(s) have reached their board limits. Let’s talk a bit more about why you might be facing those Team Restrictions and board limits.

Team Restrictions on Board Creation

On Business Class and Enterprise teams, team admins have the ability to restrict whether team members can create, as well as copy or move, boards within a team. You can contact a team admin to learn more. Teams admins are listed in the “Members” tab in the Team Overview page on the web.

Boards Limits for Free Teams

How are boards in free teams defined?

A free Trello team has a limit of 10 boards open at a time. When a board is open, it can be viewed and used - when a board is closed, it’s essentially archived. Closed boards can be reopened, as long as there is space for them in the 10-boards limit.

What is the benefit of organizing boards in a team?

You can think about teams as “workspaces”, be them a business workspace, a home workspace, or a book club workspace. We often see teams being used to keep together boards that are related to the same subject or workflow, or even to keep all boards that are important to the same group of people, regardless of the subject. When you add people as members to a team, which you can currently do on the web version of Trello, you also make it easier to keep all your collaborators in the same place. There are no limits to the number of members you can have in a team or the number of teams you can belong to in a single account.

Where can I see all my boards on my teams?

On iOS, you can visit the “Boards” tab. On all other platforms, you can see your boards, grouped by team, on the Home screen. On the web and desktop, navigate to the Home screen by clicking the “Home” icon or the Trello logo in the header. 

I want more boards on the same team!

Business Class teams allow for unlimited boards, along with other great capabilities like Unlimited Power-Ups. You can learn more here

If you're working alone or collaborating on small personal projects, you can close boards you don’t use or create a new team to hold your new boards.
