Tools for Remote Work: Trello for Project Management and Effective Collaboration

Collaboration is essential for remote working companies. You need to find a workflow that can manage the tasks of your team well, even if you don’t see each other physically. It’s quite tricky at first, but with the right tools, you can be even more productive than before.

One tool you can use is Trello. Trello is a project management tool that allows you to see the big picture and trickle down the tasks needed to be done to get it.

How to Install

First, sign-up your company email to the Trello website.

You will be asked to name your “Board.” Basically, this board is a bigger perspective view of the overall project. You can have a bird’s eye view of what is happening to your company, and who is assigned to do what.

Inviting Your Team to your Trello Board

The next step is to invite your team members!


Inviting Your Team to your Trello Board

You can do this by simply clicking “invite” at the top part. Or you can just send a link to them.

Assigning and Customizing Your Cards

These Cards are specific tasks or to-dos that are needed for the list. But you can further define the tasks and assign them to people by clicking it.
