Instructions for using Trello academic writing templates:
- Sign up for Trello
- Access the Academic Writing Project Management Boards & Publication Pipeline board
- Copy the boards
- You won’t be able to edit the boards until you copy them to YOUR Trello account. To do this, go to the upper right hand corner and click “Show Menu.” Then click “More” and finally “Copy Board.” You’re done!
- Don’t see the “copy board” option?
If you have an existing Trello account and you can’t see the “Copy Board” feature, don’t worry! Just click on “Menu”–>”More” and then you should see a link that warns you that you have limited features. Click on that link and you will have access to all of Trello’s features, including the “Copy Board” feature.
