Trello, the collaboration and project management tool, features thirteen new features for business users. These improve the control, security and management function. The new features have been rolled out over the past six months and represent the largest update to the platform since its launch in 2015.

With these updates, Trello wants to continue to position itself as the proverbial backbone of an organisation’s productivity. It is therefore a tool for project management, tracking tasks, keeping track of knowledge, agendas and goals. To streamline all this, it already offers more than a hundred integrations with other work-related tools.

Visibility and control

The first series of updates focuses on the visibility of an organisation’s work and the projects on which staff are working. These updates also focus on the control mechanisms that are important for these types of tools:

  • Visibility settings: A new privacy setting stands between the team and the public, making it easier for teams to share classified information with other teams.
  • Team visibility checks: admins can use these settings to make all business teams private, or to allow team administrators to decide for themselves whether they are visible within the company.
  • Team membership restrictions: admins can decide whether team administrators can set who joins a team.
  • Set up and remove restrictions on forums: team administrators can set up whether team members can set up public, only visible to the team, or private forums.
  • Invite restrictions to team forums: team administrators can set up or team members can remove forums within a team.
  • Limit Attachments: admins can streamline which attachments staff can upload to Trello.

Manage Trello

There are also a lot of new settings to manage a Trello. The following new functions have been added:

  • Automatic SSO imposition: claimed domain names can be transferred automatically, with e-mail reminders.
  • Manage public forums: admins can easily monitor all public forums connected to a company to make sure that everything is not just publicly accessible.
  • Upgrade admins: admins can set who in the team gets the same admin status and rights.
  • Deactivating / reactivating users: this can be done directly from the dashboard.
  • Deactivate in bulk: it is possible for admins to deactivate user accounts in bulk from the dashboard.
  • Filter by recent activity: admins can filter members by activity in the last 30/60/90 days.
  • Power-ups: admins can use this function to set which additional third party functions have integration with Trello. They can also see which power-ups are available within the team.
