How are we using it at the Algonac Robotics Team?
A good example on how we will use Trello is described below. The scenario is that we need a small process to manage our thank you notes.
So, within our Trello account, we have a board called “Thank You Notes”.
When a thank you note is needed, we can quickly add a card with the known details in the description.
To create a new card, click on “Add a Card”
When a thank you notes is ready to be processed by the Business Sub Team, it will be labels with a green indicator. Different colors labels can be use.
A yellow label indicate that there some information missing and somebody needs to do something or provide more info.
If a problem prevent the task from being done, the labels should be change to red. This will provide a quick visual to everybody so it can be addressed right away.
To change the card labels, hover your mouse on the card and click on the “Edit” icon on top right of the card, then “Edit Labels”
You can then select or un-select the label color you want.
When a card is complete, you can simply clcik and drag the card to the appropriate board.
