Trello today launched a “update once a decade“of its project management software, adding new visualization options and smarter cards to the platform. There are four new visualization modes for Trello boards: timeline, calendar, board, and dashboard. these are accessible by clicking on the “Table” tab, which now opens a drop-down list of the different options.
The timeline makes it easy to see projects that span multiple days or phases, showing more than two weeks at a time.
Calendar mode is exactly what it looks like – a traditional one-month calendar with cards with the appropriate dates. Moving a card to a new calendar day automatically updates its due date.
Table View allows users to organize multiple tables on a single page, arranged in a simple list with information including icons, labels, members, and due dates.
Finally, the dashboard provides bird’s-eye metrics breaking down your Trello situation into pie and bar charts.

Trello blog post. “Saved filters will allow you to instantly extract the information you need in the view you want, whether it’s a schedule of your work, a timeline of business projects or a chart. edge of current business workloads. “
Trello has also made its cards smarter. There are three types of cool cards: link, board, and mirror. Link Cards allow users to drop a URL into the title of a card and have it populate with relevant information, including previews of YouTube, Google Drive, Instagram, Dropbox, and other apps. Board cards allow users to drop a link to another Trello board in the title space, creating a direct link to that space. Mirror maps will arrive in the next few months, allowing users to clone a map across multiple boards.
The Trello logo, artwork, and the standard sidebar have also received a pin shine. The sidebar is now organized by workspace. So get to work, folks.
