(Free) Millions of people use this project management app, and for good reason. Here's how Trello works: You create boards for new projects, and within those boards you create lists, which you can then fill with cards that represent tasks or ideas. A popular way to use Trello is to create lists for each stage of a project, such as Incomplete, In Progress, and Done. That way, you can easily see where you are at a glance. In a nutshell, Trello gives you the freedom to structure your workflow in whatever way makes sense to you. Unlike the rigid structure of most to-do apps, Trello can hold huge amounts of formatted text, checklists, and comment chains within cards. This level of detail within a simple framework makes Trello an invaluable tool. As you use Trello, you naturally create a log of past projects, which you can revisit when training a new team member. Delving into a project history and reading through comments is a great way for a new employee to learn the thinking behind a project and how it developed over time.
