Trello

Trello is a collaborative task and project-management tool.

Setup

Account creation

Trello accounts support multiple email addresses, so you can use an existing account (if you have one) by adding your GSA email address.

If you do not have an existing Trello account, go to Trello, click the green “Sign Up” button, and create a Trello account by signing up with your GSA Google account.

Because Trello is a web application, there’s no installation necessary. You will just need to sign in or set up an account.

Make sure to set up two-factor authentication.

Requesting access

To get access to the 18F Trello team, ask for an invite in #admins-trello with the following script: “Please invite my Trello account “YOUR_USERNAME” to Trello at https://trello.com/18f3/members.” NOTE: If you don’t have a Trello account, feel free to ask us to invite your GSA e-mail address to create one.

There is no 18F-wide access to paid Trello features or add-on services yet. If you’re interested in those things, you may have to work it out with your team.

Rules

Abide by the TTS Code of Conduct. If you see anyone violating our Code of Conduct, see the reporting section.

Usage

People use Trello to track ideas from conception through execution. It’s common to see a working group using Trello to collaborate in creating documentation. Sometimes we track business development leads on a Trello board. Some individuals use Trello to help track and prioritize their own queue of work. Most commonly, Trello is used by 18F teams applying agile processes like Scrum and Kanban to deliver software.
