The project administration software obtained by Atlassian in 2017 is now one of the most important updates nowadays, Trello, which is the board-centric project management technique in Kanban. Trello is among the best-known project administration tools with considerably over 50 million users, which in many aspects brought digital Kanban boards into the mainstream. With today’s release, this focus does not alter; however, the team presently adds a whole range of new views as well as capacities to just the cards which make up these views, with a particular aim to bring more than just the information from third-party tools correct into all those cards, besides several adjustments in the feel and look of its service overall.
Michael Pryor, the co-founder of Trello but now Head of Trello, Atlassian, explained to me before today’s official statement, “We have far over 50 million sign-ups, or that 50 Million numbers are from 2018 and something, they will not certainly give the current number yet. “We have a massive but also passionate public of people in the past.” The pandemic hit more than last year. We spoke of work’s future, right? And suddenly, it was all like: nope, it’s work only. Now, everything’s spread out. We compressed everything at once. And we’ve got this shift overnight. We’d talk about a blast of apps before, we’ll talk about all of the other browser tabs and the information that people are getting lost. Now it’s only turned on 11.”
The possible explanation behind many of the additional features has been to make it easier for customers to do even more work within Trello to get a better macro view about what teams work with themselves, as well as what happens within teams. The new Trello adds additional strategies to natively view information from other tools within the service without changing tools.
In practice, that implies Trello adds five new views to Trello:
- A team table view for cross-project and cross-company monitoring work in a spreadsheet-like manner
- Timeline views for data modification and roadblock management
- A calendar view for the time-sensitive tracking deadlines and tasks
- An overview of the map for localization users
The names here are mostly self-explaining. But perhaps the essential factor here seems to be that Trello’s first view of the new team table is the numerous boards.
“It increases your point of view to the level of your portfolio, not only at the level of the Board,” says Pryor. “All of the viewpoints will ultimately be doing the same, and therefore basically we will have the capacity to pivot as well as view your cards, when you’re on an onboard basis, depending on which is a project as well as how you need it.” Here the concept would onboard as well as extend the existing visual language of Trello to bring these shared viewpoints.
Pryor contends that perhaps this is even more essential than what Trello does with its new cards. The squad is going to add over 30 new types of cards whereby you can view previews about what you connected right into Trello only by adding a URL that connects to YouTube, Figma, Google Drive, JIRA or even other Trello boards.
“I believe that that raises the card from becoming one thing that is only available in Trello to portray work going on across all these other tools,” stated Pryor. “After your Trello cards, now your tickets for Jira can exist. As well as you categorize it and move and speak about it, irrespective of what happens in Jira — it can be linked to it, but it does add to the capacity to develop a dashboard which brings everything into one place.”
Pryor mentioned that perhaps the group needed to be using the simplicity of Trello’s users’ visual language but instead apply it to other instruments. “We could enter a race and only build project management characteristics,” he,” says. More than just a project management application, the team planned to develop. Trello is an app that supports users in managing all their projects. He argues that the only way to add characteristics would be to float. Instead, the team wants to take its card metaphor, broaden it and enable the use of visual language now also acquainted to its user groups to construct new solutions within Trello.
The mirror cards, which allow you to share the same card across the board, are yet another major update that is coming — as well as the Trello community expects for a while. That everything you must do is connect your source card to a new board card as well as the new card looks like the original card.
