New updates to Trello mobile, controlling board roles, and a book tracker!
Hope you enjoy the new format, organized with useful Trello content throughout!
New format, who dis? Yes, my loyal readers, once again I'm trying out another format! Let me know what you think of this one, and @Andy we'll have to come up with fun titles for these sections 😂

New in Trello
Updates in Trello mobile! (I joined a Product Insider meeting at Altassian this week, and here’s the inside scoop on the latest stuff in Trello Mobile!)
Fewer steps for login and sign up flow (only 2 clicks to log in, and fewer than there used to be for signing up)
Request board access from mobile (I didn’t know this was not possible before 😂 but now you can do it!
Share content to an existing card (access Trello via the share options on your phone, and instead of creating a new card with the item, you can attach it to an already existing card- currently only on Android, but in the works to come to iPhone as well).
Edit card cover settings (set card covers to a color or image on mobile! this is being rolled out slowly so if you don’t see it yet, it should be available to you soon!)
Scan text with camera (update text fields like name and description by scanning text through your phone’s camera. I’m probably going to do a video on some cool ways to use this soon. Currently only on iPhone. )
Did you know you can control who can comment on your boards and who can add other people to your board? There are some special settings in your board but they’re hidden in your board menu settings!
Have you seen my Trello shorts series? I'm trying to release a couple of new videos each week that are less than 3 minutes showing you how to do specific things in Trello.
