Have you tried out the new Trello text editor yet? Here's how to take it for a spin.
Trello Tip of the Week
Want to move cards quickly to the next list? While a card is selected, use the < and > keys to move the card to the bottom of the list before or after it (respectively). Hold down “shift” while you do it and it will move the card to the top.
Of course, if you need to move it over several lists, just click it repeatedly 😊

Short video this week (queue the sighs of disappointment that you don’t have to watch my face for a whole 10 minutes).
Trello has a beta feature right now for a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) text editor that lets you format descriptions and comments with a toolbar menu rather than having to remember the markdown shortcuts. It’s pretty handy! In this week’s video, you’ll learn how it works and how to enable it!
I’m trying out a tool called Endel, which creates “personalized soundscapes to help you focus, relax, and sleep, backed by neuroscience”. Although I’ve only been using it for a few days, I already feel like I’m into it.
I typically can’t fall asleep without listening to some noise, like tv, but I’ve been trying this out the last couple of nights and it seems to help me fall asleep quicker and I think I might wake up a little more refreshed, although it’s kinda soon to tell anything conclusive.
I also started using the music for focus, and it pairs really well with the Pomodoro method because you can set a timer for it to run for x amount of time with focus music and then chime with an alarm.
It’s available for Mac, iOS, google play, Amazon Alexa, and more!
How’ve we been liking the polls I’ve been doing? On my end, it’s been nice getting to know you all a bit more and help me shape the direction the content takes in the future! Here’s this week’s question:
What do you use Trello for?
