Trello is about perfect for my basic organizational needs, but I can't come up with a solution on how to share card information with an outside user. I'm tracking questions/issues and when done I'd like to be able to send the results (without cutting and pasting) to an outside email. Any solution?

From the Trello help guide:

Organization admins can make the organizations visibility public or private. You can change the setting in the "Account" page. Private organizations will not show up on your profile when other people view it. They will also not show up in search results.

Organizations also have admins which have the ability to add / remove members, and edit the name and description. To add a member as an admin, click on their avatar in the member list on the profile, and select "Make Admin of Organization".

So it sounds like the only way to do this is to make your board public and share the link right now.

Alternatively, if you're okay with the end user seeing the Trello card in a different format (like in an email) I might recommend trying Zapier.

You could set up a new Trello List on your Board called "Shared". Then, use a Trello to GMail Zap which watches this new List for new Cards.

Trello to GMail Zap

When Zapier sees a new Card in your Shared List, it can automatically send the contents of the Card in an email.

You might consider putting the outside user's email address into the description field of the Trello card and mapping that over when you build your Zap. If you decide to do this, keep in mind you'll want to add the email address before putting the card into the Shared List.

It is now possible to share a link to a specific card.

From the Trello documentation:

To obtain a link to a card on your board, open the card, click "Share and more..." from the lower right-hand corner of the card back and copy the link to your card.

    we have a private board. we were hoping this would provide access to just this card, but no, it does not. again, it would be helpful if one could give someone read-only access to the card without opening up the rest of the board. – Ray Kiddy Feb 1 '17 at 1:37
