Data can be manipulated via an API 𐄂 𐄂
Short details Free-form outlines organized by virtual file folders. This application does allow you to create GTD-style task lists using the folders, but power users will feel the lack of sorting and filtering options. Utilizing Boards (projects) and cards (tasks), Trello solves about a dozen problems all at the same time over grid-oriented task lists, including: scanning to-do lists repeatedly, confusion about priorities of assignments, inability to see updates on what has changed in to-do lists, better team visibility and empathy on workloads, consolidating multiple lists used to compartmentalize, automatic reporting back and accountability, easy and persistent commenting around tasks that doesn't get lost, and several other needs.
