Sometimes I work on a bus or in places, where I can't use internet.

Is there a way to use Trello offline?

There is currently no way to use Trello offline.

However, if you do go offline, Trello will inform you and will update your board when you're back online.

are there any plans to support this. This is a big blocker. Nothing worse than having a perfect list to only realize that you can't see it because internet connection is down –  leora Nov 20 '11 at 12:58

Leora, you can try the iPhone app, which stores your data offline. Adding offline support creates a lot of complexity (for both developers and users). User interfaces for merge conflicts are never simple. It's not out of the question, but it won't be coming in the near future. –  Bobby Grace Nov 20 '11 at 18:36

It should have the data from the last time you synced. However, it will only sync data from cards you have opened, not just cards you've seen in the list. For performance and bandwidth reasons, it doesn't load all the card data at once. –  Bobby Grace Nov 22 '11 at 21:38

is there a way to take a snapshot and/or download all the boards? –  cwd Oct 10 '12 at 20:17

As of July 2015, (question asked back in 2011) you still (!) can't do much offline beyond see lists of cards, but:

  • The Android app now (since 27th May 2015) has "Offline Support" in its "Working on" section (with a whopping 3122 votes - follow the link to vote and encourage them on). But don't get your hopes up, because here is what they say about it:

Yes, we are working on this. We have a plan on what we need to do. It's a big project and it will be a long while before we have something to show you.

  • For the iOS app, "Edit while offline" has been in the "Todo" category since August 2013 (with an impressive 1543 votes - follow the link to vote and encourage them on). However, the following are apparently already supported offline:

You can currently:

  • create cards while offline
  • add comments while offline
  • upload attachments while offline
  • view cached boards while offline

We are working on expanding this. We have a plan on what we need to do. It's a big project and it will be a long while before we have something to show you.

  • There's also a Windows 8 app. However, I can't find an equivalent status board, and here's what one reviewer ("0035", 7/15/2015, can't link to review) says about using it offline:

...unfortunately, other than viewing my lists, I can't do anything [while offline] without it falling apart.

Any editing to my board (e.g. adding a list, adding a card , editing card details) is usually not registered and, in some cases, causes the app to crash.
