Trello is phasing out board descriptions. The button is no longer available for new boards or boards without descriptions. The problem was that most people didn’t know about the feature, and making it more prominent or further investing in it didn’t seem valuable. The team recommends adding a card on the top left that says “Hey, look here for information ...

You can remove the user from each board that they are on; that will remove them from all cards on the board. There is not (currently) an easier way to do this.

I have several boards that are dependent on each other, respectively, I have one project board with task and work packages and sub-boards with the more granular tasks. How I navigate between boards, respectively link resources, notably cards, from other boards is that I use the board's URL in the description or comments of dependent cards. While this does ...

You could subscribe to the whole board, lists or cards and get notifications of what is happening there. This page will give you more information: http://help.trello.com/customer/portal/articles/930771-subscribing-to-cards-lists-and-boards Note: if you have a highly active board it will become in a nightmare... :D

If you are flexible in your workflow, you could rig up a tool like Zapier to automatically create a new card with yourself set as the assignee. I am imagining a Trello to Trello Zap where you monitor any board for new cards and automatically create a copy of the card onto a "ME" board or list with yourself set as the assignee.

No, this functionality doesn't exist. If you'd like the Trello developers to consider this feature, please email feature-ideas@trello.com - this board is a more general forum for existing functionality of web applications, not development. Great idea though :)

Trello is a great project management tool for lightweight project management, but it lacks some sort of integrated workflow automation, so things like automatically showing a card on due date are not possible. To work around that, I created a bot for Trello that can do exactly what you want (and a lot more). It's been running for a while with very satisfied ...

An Organization (org) is a group of people (resources) in a company. A Board is similar to a Project that has cards (tasks) handled by resources (people) When you create an Org add all the people associated with that company that will be working on the projects. You can create as many orgs as you like. The key is setting up the boards Visibility ...

If you still maintain an e-mail account for this user you might temporarily re-enable it with a new password and then use that e-mail address with the "Forgot Password" login process with Trello. A change password e-mail should be sent. (You may need to know the username which should be in the original "Welcome to Trello" e-mail) Once logged in to Trello as ...

There's no way to do that; people can either see a whole board or none of it. You'll probably have to create a separate board for each client project.

See Changing the organization to which a board belongs On this menu on the right side of the board: … click "Additional Settings", then click "Change Organization…"

The best thing to do is add the members to the organization using the 'Add Members' button on the Members tab from the organization's page. Click on the org name link in the top left corner of any board to open the organization page. Since the members are part of a board already, it should be easy to enter the member names. Notes. If there is no ...

For the free account, the only track you can keep is when he/she changes anything on the board. Regarding read only access, there is no log you can check for that. If this is a critical thing you need to solve right now, consider asking Trello support and reading help if this is available to achive by upgrading to one of the paid plans. Still, I believe ...

No, you cannot remove the "My Boards" section. That section relates to boards not associated with any organization. While you cannot remove the "My Boards" section from the "left side panel" you mention, you can minimize the appearance by Click on the minus ("-") "Collapse section" icon to the right of "My Boards" in the left side panel. Star boards there ...

You need to have a paid-for Trello Gold or Business-Class account. Then you can upload your own background images, as well as do a bunch of other things.

This is not exactly possible, but there's something pretty close that might solve your needs. Go to "Options" > "Settings" > "Permissions". If you set the visibility to "Organization", you'll be able to enable "Allow organization members to join". Then any person in the organization will be able to add themselves to that board without having to be invited. ...

We use different methods depending on the situation. Everyone knows ahead of time how to determine who is next. Change the names assigned to the card. The next person listed in the description is now responsible for the card. This is the method our team preferred. The order is based on who is assigned now. Harder to keep track of the more people assigned....

If you can control the text in the email subject, you could use Butler Bot to automate moving the card to the right list by prepending a text to the subject of each email. For example, let's say that you want to email a card with the title "Card title", which would go in the subject of the email, and a description that goes in the body of the email. If you ...

I don't know if this is the best answer for your specific situation, in fact I think Eric's solution is better, but maybe you'll want to mix it with this one: You can use https://trello.com/cardsync, which is a Trello bot that I developed, to create cards that mirror each other, then you place one at each list. From the @cardsync description: Hello, my ...

Hope this link helps Understanding Notifications in Trello. Key Points from the article: Request the right amount of notifications Unsubscribe from all boards. This was a big mistake on my part. I had subscribed to the board itself. This created an enormous amount of noise and was why I ended up turning all notifications off and led to me missing the ...

You should take a look at @cardsync, a Trello bot that I wrote that does exactly this: keeps cards in sync. From the bot's own description: You can use me to create 2 or more twin cards in 2 or more boards. Whenever someone updates the name, description, due date, cover image, checklists and checkitem states, add or remove attachments or add, delete or ...

No, sadly that isn't possible. Well, I mean, it's possible to write a script to do that with the Trello API, but it's not possible through the Trello web app.

To handle notifications, the Google Chrome Extension Notifier for Trello https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/notifier-for-trello/apgmgifljeljdmgkgklphgmckihimami?hl=en-US is helpful to my opinion.

There are a number of ways to accomplish what you want. Experiment to see what works best with your team. We use recurring tasks to manage these (we had one board with lists for Daily, Weekly, Monthly and Annual/Once tasks) Method One: Each person assigned to a card will be subscribed to the card activity and therefore receive an email notice of activity ...

I wasn't able to search external users with name / trello account but using email address seems to work.

From my experience, it isn't possible to become invisible. Try looking it up at Trello Help pages.

The "left column" is the "list guide" (more info at http://blog.trello.com/board-and-list-subscribe-desktop-notifications-edit-comments-and-more/) You should be able to hide it by clicking the bar that appears when you hover the mouse to the right of the list guide.

I just set up gmail addresses for a few team members and got them onto the board that way. It's a bit of a long winded workaround but it gets things up and running and means they come into a functional team setup from the off. I used keepass to store all the usernames and passwords so logging into different gmail accounts to process the invitations is a lot ...

SteB's answer is right, but I think you'll find it helpful to know that after you delete the organization you can still view the boards by clicking the Boards menu on the top right by your profile pic and then click View Closed Boards at the bottom of the menu. You'll find your all your boards are available even though you deleted the organization they were ...

By default, when you add a user to an organization they get read-only access to the boards, only when they're added as a member of a board do they gain write-access.
