Free Project and Task Management with Trello

Over the last few years, Trello as a service based (SaaS) product, has become an incredibly popular free project management solution. Now owned by Atlassian Trello joins powerhouses products like Jira and Confluence. Trello brings the Kanban project management methodology to the masses. That said, it is often used by Scrum, Agile and Six Sigma practitioners. Signing up for Trello is a breeze. Simply navigate to and click Sign Up in the upper right hand corner.

Unlike many competitors, the free version of Trello is ultra powerful. While not a comprehensive list, the free version of Trello includes:

  • Unlimited Personal Boards
  • Unlimited Cards
  • Unlimited Lists
  • 10 MB per File Attachment
  • 10 Team Boards

Captera describes Trello as a great solution “…for teams of all sizes, for the creators and doers, and for those who take dreams to done.”
