Working remotely requires good organization skills. You have to be able to communicate effectively in order to complete a project successfully. It is also very important to be able to collaborate with your virtual co-workers using a good system. When I discovered Trello, I was instantly amazed by how easy to use it in terms of building a team, connecting with others, project management, brainstorming, and so on. It has definitely improved my workflows.

Here are some of the additional tips that would be very helpful in using your Trello account:

1. Try using keyboard shortcuts. It is a long list but you would be able to pick a few and memorize them.

2. You can send emails to your Trello cards. This is one of the coolest things that I have discovered in Trello. It is a time saver! Email ideas to your Trello cards. Each card has an email address. Copy and store it in your email contacts. I have tried this when I have gotten an email that I would like to share with my colleagues using Trello. You can stay organized when you are on the go.

3. You can copy an entire list. If you have checklists and links, just click. Rename the list. Change the date. I have lists that I would like to duplicate especially if I am doing them on a daily basis.

4. Use Power-Ups. Trello has a selection of Power-Ups that you can use. One of my favorite Power-Ups is Calendar. Using Calendar is a great addition because it allows me to track my tasks and prioritize the important ones.

5. Enable the Color-Blind Friendly Mode. I love seeing the different patterns on my labels. They look fun!
