Trello is an online top for project management. It is based on the Kanban style of workflow, which originated in manufacturing and has since been adopted as a way to manage processes in other fields. It is a web-based project management top that allows users to organize tasks into lists called “boards”. Users can create “cards” within these lists and manage them with drag and drop functionality.
Several years ago I started using Gmail to access my email through an IMAP connection. This access was through my own personal domain. As time went on I added another domain to my account and began using the IMAP mail server for that domain also. Since that time I have added several more domains to my Gmail account. All of these domains are accessed through the same IMAP server. In the beginning I believed this would be convenient, and it was, but as time went on I realized it was a big problem! The biggest issue I found was when I tried to use different browsers or applications to access email through one of my personal domains. Connecting to Gmail accounts through POP3 connections is not possible so I needed an IMAP server. Using the IMAP server for multiple domains would allow me to use whatever browser or application I wanted to use.
Coming from a Mac environment, I was used to OS X Mail, Apple Mail, Outlook, Thunderbird and others. All had their strengths and weaknesses. A couple of years ago I purchased a new Windows machine and tried using Outlook 2013 for my email. While there are many things I liked about Outlook, I found that it was not very good at handling multiple domains through a single IMAP server. So, after much searching I decided to try Outlook Web Access (OWA. for my email needs on this new machine. OWA works great but it was only available on Windows machines. On my Macs I continued using OS X Mail for all of my email needs, including the multiple domains through IMAP server.
In March of this year I discovered Trello and immediately saw its potential as an organizing top for my projects. As soon as I saw the integration between Trello and Gmail I knew I wanted in on this action. One thing that became obvious right away was that the Trello card would need an email address assigned to it in order to function properly. This set up caused a problem because the way Gmail is designed, you could send email from any address you wanted (as long as it was within the domain. When someone created a Trello card they could choose the email address they wanted to use for that card, but it would not be able to be sent from anyone else’s email address! Thus, it is impossible to create a card using one email account and then have it sent from another account! This seemed like a major flaw to me until I realized that there was something built into Google Apps that would fill in where Trello fell short. And that is when I discovered the IMAP server by Connect!
My first task was to set up the IMAP server, which entails creating a new Gmail account specific to the IMAP server, setting up an IMAP server name, assigning the correct SSL certificate, enabling POP/IMAP access from within the Google Apps contrp panel and finally setting up the settings within the Connect application itself. This process took some time but once it was all complete, it all worked perfectly! The next step invpved installing the Trello software on my computer (Mac. and making sure it worked properly with the Gmail account used by the IMAP server. Once again this worked flawlessly! In fact, it worked so well that I decided it was time to create a Trello account for one of my domain names and see if it would work as well as it did with my Gmail account. This process turned out to be incredibly easy! To make sure everything worked as planned I created a simple Trello board with just one card in it and tried sending an email from a newly created address associated with that card. This worked perfectly! From then on it was easy to add more cards, assign them emails addresses and send emails from those addresses. Unbeknownst to me at the time, this process spved all of my problems with emailing from multiple domains!
The benefit of using Trello over a plain email list is that there is a visual representation of what needs do be done as well as how far along those items are in terms of completion. With Trello everything is organized into lists or “boards” which can contain any number of “cards” which can include tasks or information about those tasks as well as attachments such as documents or pictures. If you have ever used any type of project management software you will find that Trello looks and feels very familiar to you. It even has similar features such as checklists, comments on cards and moving cards around between lists. It also appears that Trello has integrated more advanced features than most project management software such as due dates (which allow you to schedule when a task has to be completed), file attachments (which can be added when creating a card or later on. and labels (which can be added at any time. You can even create cards directly in your Gmail inbox!
Having a visual representation of what needs to be done allows you to see where things are falling behind or where there might be too many “in progress” items being worked on at one time. For example, if you have three people working on different aspects of one project and every day two out of three people are saying they are done with their portion there might be some issues with communication or overlapping work schedules. With a visual representation like Trello you can easily see what issues may exist and take steps to correct them before they become a problem. And if you have someone who doesn’t do their work in a timely manner or forgets things along the way you can simply move their card farther down in the list while still continuing to track their progress with checkmarks or whatever symbp you wish to assign for “in progress” status. Another thing that may be beneficial with using Trello is that everyone who works on a project has access to all of the information on each card without having to ask other workers what they have done or what other workers have done! Plus, if someone sees something in need of attention they can simply comment on the card without having to send an email! In fact, one worker may even be able to see what other workers have done if they feel their work needs further clarification! Everything is organized into lists so no one gets lost in a sea of emails!
As previously mentioned, there can be any number of entries in each board/list which will ultimately depend on how many projects you are working on at any given time or how complex your projects are. There are many different ways you can use Trello and you will probably find many more ways over time. One thing that impressed me was being able to create cards directly in Gmail (or any other mailbox supported by IMAP by Connect. For example, if someone emails you asking how much longer they should wait for your software program because you said you would have it ready yesterday, you can quickly create a card directly in your inbox giving them an estimated completion date while assuring them that it will definitely be ready today or tomorrow! WOW! That is something you cannot do with any other webmail provider or most desktop email programs! Having cards automatically created gives you instant visibility of your workload so you can schedule your work accordingly! And if other coworkers ask questions about your tasks they can see what is going on without having to ask you questions about them! Of course if they want more information they can just click on the link associated with the card and they will be taken directly to that item in Trello so they can get all the information they need! You could also click on their name within Trello and send them an email directly from within the app if needed! This means no more scheduling conflicts because everyone knows what everyone else is doing! It’s like having your entire team working together without having anyone sitting at their desk!
I am very pleased with this integration between Trello and IMAP by Connect! The ability to create cards directly within Gmail only adds to the benefits of this combination! While there are still some things left for me to figure out such as adding attachments to existing cards as well as allowing people outside of my domain access via HTTPS authentication (which requires SSL certificates), all in all this has been an
