Create A Team

Organize the boards and people you're working with to get things done.

 

Build Your Dream Team

Teams make it easy to organize all of your Trello boards and members in one accessible location. Trello Teams can be created for any group in your life: whether for work, family, friends, or just for fun.

There’s no limit to the number of boards or members you can have in a team, and no limit to the number of teams you can create. (Looking for additional security features, administrative controls, and unlimited integrations? Then a Business Class team is right for you.)

Starting a team is pretty simple:

  1. Click the plus button (+) in the Trello header directly to the left of your avatar.
  2. Select “Personal Team” or “Business Class Team.”
  3. Name your team after your company, family, PTA, book club etc, and click “Create.” Nice!
  4. If you’ve created a Business Class team, make sure to head over to our Business Class Onboarding guide.

Invite The Whole Gang

The Members tab of your team page is where you’ll add (or remove) team members. When adding members, think big! Don’t just add the department that you work with. Instead, add your entire company so that everyone can organize and collaborate in one centralized location. This also makes it easier for colleagues to join boards and get to work without any friction.

There are a few easy ways to invite your entire company, club, or family, to your Trello team:

  • Click “Bulk Add Members” and type or paste in their emails.
  • Click “Add by Name or Email” and send the special link to everyone you want to join the team. You can also just individually add members anytime by their email address or username.
  • 💼 Business Class teams have the option to link their Google Apps domain to their Trello team to invite their entire company in just a few clicks.

#TrelloTips: Link your Slack and Trello teams for the ultimate productivity powerhouse. Collaborate on Trello cards and boards without leaving Slack, and let Slack team members easily join your Trello team.

Make It (Team) Visible

When collaborating with a team in Trello, first make sure that your boards are associated with the team. To do so, go to your boards and change the visibility setting to “Team,” and select your newly created team. When a board is team visible it means everyone on the team can view and join the board without needing to interrupt an existing board member to gain access.

#TrelloTips: If your newly invited teammates have Trello boards they’ve been using that are relevant to the team, make sure they associate their boards with the team as well.

Onboard Your Team

Way to go! You’ve set up your team, associated your Trello boards, and invited everyone. 🙌
