In Trello's current implementation, this is not configurable: lists are programmatically sized to be between 300–210 pixels wide depending on the available space.

Trello stores the due dates in UTC, however it displays (and interprets) due dates in your local timezone (i.e. whatever your OS/Browser are set to), so the due date will be correct for your entire team, no matter what time zone they're in.

A quick way to individually assign labels is to hover your mouse over individual cards and press 0-9 to assign the associated labels. To see ...

My approach is to: pick one of the cards as the master copy as much info as you practically can (or want to) paste the URL of the other card into the comments of the master archive the unwanted card. You can still access the info from the archived card if needed, it is not deleted.

Unfortunately, this is a little bit hidden in the current UI. Here's how you enable desktop notifications: Go to a board Scroll to the bottom of the "Activity" widget (lower right) Click "Allow Notifications" This setting is per-browser (so you'll need to re-enable it if you use a different computer), and only works in Chrome. If you don't see that link, ...

Some cards have the day in the title (Tue: Clean Desk) ...
