Have you ever used a board to remember all your ideas and tasks? Well, it needs a certain amount of space on your wall so you can hang it. Also, one board is usually not enough. Fortunately, there is a software that requires only a tab in your browser, to help you organize every single task. Its name is Trello!
Trello is an online tool that replaces traditional notes on your wall. Every important information that you have to save for later you can just pin to its interactive board. It’s a great project management software for individuals and teams.

A board is the biggest unit. Each board is built of lists which can be considered tasks. The lists contain cards – these are our tasks, subtasks, and ideas. You decide the structure of your Trello.
