Targeted help to get up and running with Trello Enterprise.
Hooray! You’ve decided to upgrade to Trello Enterprise and fully unlock all that Trello has to offer. As an Enterprise Admin, use this guide to get familiarized with the specific features you’ll need to set your team up for success.
If you’re ever lost along the way, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Support and we will get back to you within a business day, guaranteed.
All teams use Trello differently. That’s why it’s important to think about how you’d like to set up your organization to benefit all your users.
We recommend setting up your Trello instance to reflect your current team structure. So for example, HR would be a team and have HR specific boards, Sales would be another team with Sales specific boards, etc.
Trello Enterprise offers organization level access - so the most important boards can be shared across teams if needed.
You can also organize your Enterprise by how your users and teams collaborate together. For example, your Enterprise might have larger, ongoing company initiatives that span multiple teams (eg. Employee Experience includes HR, Payroll, IT, Office Management).
Pro Tip: Trello Teams have a limit of 4,000 users so make sure you don’t hit that limit!
Once you’ve decided on your team structure, you will need to upgrade your team to access Trello Enterprise. To do that, follow these easy steps:
Pro Tip: Have multiple teams? No sweat! We just need one team you’d like to Upgrade in order to get started. If you have more, you’ll be able to upgrade them right from your Enterprise Dashboard.
For the newer versions of Trello Enterprise, SAML single sign-on (SSO) is available for Trello through Atlassian Access. Atlassian Access is a separate subscription that your company can enable across all your Atlassian products including Trello, starting at $3/month/user. The instructions below only apply to older versions of Trello Enterprise.
Trello currently allows for both IDP-initiated and SP-initiated SSO integrations with any SAML 2.0 SSO identity provider. We have pre-built integrations with:
Trello offers SSO both as a convenience feature and as an enforced security measure. If you already have an IDP that you’re using for SSO, you can enable SSO using this form.
If you’d also like to enforce SSO for your organization, Trello can automatically transfer your end-user accounts to your Enterprise team. The steps are below but more info is here.
Pro Tip: We normally recommend that the date be chosen at least 2 weeks in advance to provide your users with enough time to make a change.
After you pick a date, all users that should be part of the enterprise will receive both an in-app banner and an email notifying them that their account will automatically transfer on a set date. They will also receive a second reminder email 3 days before the transfer date.
Once the date passes, we will automatically transfer accounts to the Enterprise without any action or input required from the end-user.
You will also be able to see billable and free SSO-enforced users. Billable users mean that they are added to the Enterprise team and can see boards belonging to the Enterprise.
From here, you’ll be able to see domain-claimed accounts that are in and out of your Enterprise team on your Enterprise Admin Dashboard.
Give yourself a high five - way to go!
Trello Enterprise is the only way to control security and privacy settings across multiple Trello teams all from one place.
These Organization-Wide Permissions cascade down and affect all teams. But no sweat, if you want to set custom settings for each team you can do that as well.
These Organization-Wide Permissions include:
To excel at being an Enterprise admin, your job doesn’t end with only setting up Trello. The Enterprise Admin Dashboard should be your go-to place for seeing ongoing activity in Trello. It will help you manage incoming requests, billing, and data exports on an ongoing basis. The Enterprise Admin Dashboard also helps you manage incoming requests, billing, and data exports.
