This is a simple tool that allows you to visually organize and manage your work, either as an individual or as a team. With Trello, you can:

  • Make a list of your tasks, including:

    • Details

    • Checklists

    • Attachments

    • Due dates

    • Notes and comments

  • Assign tasks to other members of your team;

  • Receive email notifications when anything has changed in a task;

  • Organize tasks by state (e.g., pending, active, waiting for response, complete);

  • Create templates for tasks;

  • Include links to websites in your tasks.


A free version is available and has most of the functions that you and your team will ever need. There are two levels that require payment. You can look up the features and costs at Trello Gold and Trello Business Class. Please coordinate with your supervisor if you wish to use either of the paid versions.
