How To Share Trello Board

Trello is a fantastic project management tool that allows you to organize your tasks into boards. One of the best things about Trello is its shareability. Whether it’s for collaborative work, group projects, or just showing your work progress to someone, sharing a Trello board is straightforward and quick. In this blog post, we will guide you through the simple process of sharing a Trello board.

Create a Trello Board

Before we dive into sharing a Trello board, you need to have a board already created. If you haven’t done this, here’s a quick guide:

  1. Sign in to your Trello account.
  2. Click on “Create new board” on the left side of the page.
  3. Name the board and choose a background.
  4. Click “Create Board”.

And voila! You now have your Trello board ready to be shared.

Sharing Your Trello Board

Now, to the main event: sharing your Trello board. Trello allows you to share your boards in two ways: by inviting people to join the board or by creating a public link. We will walk you through both methods.

1. Inviting People to Join Your Trello Board

This method is ideal when you want to collaborate with specific people, or when you have a select group that needs access to the board. Here is how you do it:

  1. Go to your Trello board.
  2. Click on “Show Menu” on the top right of the Trello board.
  3. Click on “Invite”.
  4. Type in the email address of the person you want to invite, or if they are a Trello member, you can type in their username.
  5. Click on “Send Invitation”.

2. Sharing a Public Link to Your Trello Board

If you want anyone with the link to view the board, sharing a public link is the way to go. Do note that anyone with the link can see the board, but they will not be able to make changes unless you invite them to the board. Here are the simple steps:

  1. Go to your Trello board.
  2. Click on “Show Menu”, then “More”.
  3. Click on “Settings”, and then “Change Visibility”.
  4. Select “Public” (note that you need to be an admin of the board to change visibility).
  5. Once you have done this, you can copy the URL from your browser and share that link with anyone you want.

And there you have it! Those are the two ways you can share your Trello board. Remember, no matter which option you choose, you have the ability to manage who sees and edits your Trello board at any time.
