Trello is a project management app based on the Kanban method of visualising workflow. It is an excellent and simple project and tast management tool for teams and individuals alike. Trello is geared towards those who are visual thinkers and planners.

The central concept behind Trello is that you create a different task board for each project, team, or anything else. For example, you can have a board for Sales, Marketing, Customer support, etc. and plan all tasks for each department in your organisation under respective boards. Or you can have boards that represent different projects/events you are working on. Under each board, you can add lists, and they can represent different steps in the workflow, categories, etc. The most common lists used in the Kanban method is 'To Do', 'Doing', and 'Done'. And under each list, you can further add cards. These cards usually comprise of tasks, information, ideas, checklists, due dates, etc. that's associated with your board.

Anytime anybody makes changes to a board, Trello makes a note of it, and everyone involved in the board can access this to check on the progress of work. This quick check-in of activity eliminates the need to ask co-workers for status updates.
