How To Watch A Trello Board

Trello is an effective tool that enables visual organization of tasks. A valuable aspect of this tool is its ability to “watch” a board. Watching a board ensures that you stay informed about any modifications or updates to the cards on the board. This blog post provides a comprehensive guide on how to watch a Trello board.

Steps to Watch a Trello Board

Watching a Trello board is quite straightforward. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Log in to your Trello account.
  2. Navigate to the board you want to watch.
  3. Click on the Menu on the right-hand side of the board.
  4. In the menu, click on More, and then select Watch.

That’s it! You’re now watching the board and will be notified of changes or updates.

For developers who wish to do this programmatically via Trello’s API, you would need to make a POST request to the following URL:{id}/members/me/watched?key={yourAPIKey}&token={yourToken}

Replace {id} with the id of the board you want to watch, {yourAPIKey} with your API key, and {yourToken} with your token.


Watching a Trello board is an excellent way to keep track of the workflow and stay updated with the tasks at hand. Whether you’re managing a personal project or collaborating with a team, this feature ensures that you don’t miss out on any important updates. Happy watching!
