Hello, WR-L-ers,

Iâve just started a new contract at a place thatâs using Trello boards. Theyâre enthusiastic for me to create a Tech Pubs board, and so Iâm looking for some best practices for managing doc tasks, which will range from high-level/complex items (âchoose an authoring toolâ) to low-level tasks (âRevise topic-A on the helpsiteâ).

Different groups seem to have different lists in their boards, so clearly I can create it as best suits Tech Pubs. Typical lists on many/most of their boards are Backlog, Roadmap, In progress, Recently Done, Done, ToDo, Shelved, Freezer (presumably means, âShelvedâ). I could see having lists for different priorities of ToDo (or is there a secondary property that would be good to use on items in the same list?), In-Progress, and Done. Not sure that I need much else?

I donât need a lot of detail here â not trying to resource planning a la Microsoft Project or anything. Itâs just a broad/high-level planning tool to make my work/plans easily visible to everyone.

Thanks for your lessons learned,
