Project-management service Trello has announced that its collaboration platform is making its way to desktop. The company says it will be bringing an app to the Windows Store and it will also land on Mac.
Until now, Trello has been available on mobile platforms and the web. By moving to desktop, the app will be able to deliver new abilities, such as keyboard shortcuts, notifications, and Touch Bar support for MacBooks.
Speaking of the decision, CEO Michael Pryor said the company has always planned to move to desktop:
“The desktop app has been on our roadmap and something we've wanted to do, but as a scrappy startup we couldn't do everything at once so we decided to focus on making our mobile and web experiences great for our users.”
Trello has been busy with new features recently. The service can now embed cards directly into services such as Dropbox Paper, Bitbucket, Confluence, and more. Attached cards can also be seen in a card view that shows due dates, list status, and checklists.
It is unlikely the desktop app will be aesthetically different than the web version, so users should be able to jump straight in an be available. As daily users of Trello to coordinate our work, we welcome the addition of a desktop version here at Winbuzzer.
Both the Mac and Windows versions of Trello are available from today.
Microsoft Team Integration
Back in April, Microsoft announced its Teams workplace chat solution now supports Trello. The new integration can be added through the ribbon on the channel. Users can then log in to Trello and manage boards. This is the full service, so users can do all the things they are used to doing without leaving Microsoft Teams.
This includes tasks such as creating cards, seeing the latest activity, edit cards, create cards, and just about everything else.
