  3. For detailed instructions, follow Trello's getting started guides:

General Tips:

  1. When you start a large project, it's usually best to have a Trello card for it. Create this Trello card in the subteam board it applies to, and under the correct category within that board.
  2. Add members who are working with you on this project to the card.
  3. Add labels that apply to the card's contents.
  4. If a card has multiple parts to it, you can create a checklist for each subtask, and check them off to show progress.
  5. Add a due date to the card. For events, this is the start time of the event.
  6. When you have completed the task, archive the Trello card.
