Trello is a web-based project management application that enables users to create boards to track tasks and projects. Boards can be populated with cards, which represent individual tasks or project milestones. Users can then collaborate on tasks by assigning them to other team members, adding comments, and attaching files. The application also offers a variety of integrations with other applications, such as Google Drive and Slack.

Searching vs. Filtering in Trello

There are two main ways of using Trello: searching and filtering—but which is right for you?

Well, if you know the name of the card or list you're looking for, you can search for it by typing into the search bar at the top of the screen. However, if you don't know exactly what you're looking for, filtering can be a better option. You can filter by the board, list, or card by clicking on the filter icon in the top right corner of the screen.
