Latest news about Microsoft Project and Trello:



10.01.17. Atlassian acquired Trello. Atlassian has acquired project management service Trello for $425 million. Just like with many of Atlassian’s other acquisitions, the company plans to keep both the Trello service and brand alive and current users shouldn’t see any immediate changes. With Trello, Atlassian is acquiring one of the fastest growing project management services. It now has about 19 million users. Trello brings more productivity to individual and team projects. It shows all of the projects from the entire team in a single glance. Assigning projects is easy, just put them in the assigned person’s or team’s list and when completed drag it to the completed list. Each “card” or task can be commented on and links can be added. Trello works across multiple devices and uploads files from Dropbox or Google Drive.



24.08.16. Trello makes its Power-Ups available to free users. Project management service Trello made its Power-Ups (third-party integrations) available to all of its users, including those who are on the service’s free tier. Until now, only paying users were able to use this feature, which includes integrations with products like SurveyMonkey, join.me, Github and Slack, among many others. Free users were restricted to using three very basic Power-Ups: Calendar for seeing Trello’s calendar view, Card Aging for slowly fading out cards as they age, and Voting for (you guessed it) adding a voting option to cards. Besides, Trello is launching integrations with Intercom, Github Enterprise and Screenful. Trello itself is also launching two new Power-Ups itself: custom fields for users who want to be able to create new data fields and visual cues for their cards, as well as a Card Repeater that allows you to set intervals for repeating tasks. With Card Repeater, you can set up Trello to automatically create copies of certain cards for recurring tasks like expense report due dates. This feature is currently only available as a public beta, though, and admins will have to request access to it.



26.01.16. Trello launched platform for developers. Project management tool Trello is opening its Power-Ups Platform to developers who want to integrate their services with Trello. Launch partners for Trello’s new developer platform include the likes of SurveyMonkey, Zendesk, join.me and Giphy. In total, Trello currently features about 22 add-ons in its directory. For Trello users, having access to these third-party tools directly inside the service means they won’t have to switch context quite as often to perform some routine tasks and will be able to automate more of their workflow inside of Trello. It’s worth noting that Trello has long had an API that gave developers access to some of Trello’s features from inside their own apps. With the new platform, though, developers can directly integrate certain features into the Trello user interface.



20.10.15. Project management service Trello adds tracking USPS, UPS, FedEx and others. Project management service Trello launched a new feature that brings shipping and tracking data from UPS, USPS, FedEx, OnTrac and LaserShip right into Trello cards. That’s a nifty little feature for existing Trello users, given that it now allows them to easily track their shipments in real time right from their project management tool. This means a small business could now use the service to easily track the progress of their shipments and as their status changes from in-transit to delivered, the card will automatically change colors from yellow to green (or to red when the shipment is delayed). Trello recently launched its revamped business offering, which includes a number of other third-party integrations, too. Like Atlassian, Trello is clearly looking to expand outside of the developer niche that first adopted the service.



17.09.15. Trello launched revamped business version. Project management service Trello launched  a revamped version of its business offering that introduces new features like third-party integrations with tools like Slack, GitHub and Salesforce. These new integrations — called Power-Up by Trello — will make life quite a bit easier for Trello users going forward. While you have long been able to connect Slack and Trello, for example, the new integration now lets you tell Trello to remind you of a card on one of your Trello boards in a few hours and then Slack will pop up a reminder later in the day. The previous integration only allows you to get an update in Slack when there was basic activity on your Trello cards, lists and boards. Similarly, the GitHub integration now allows you to see relevant details from GitHub (commit messages, pull requests, etc.) right on a Trello card that’s updated in real time. Other supported services include  Box, Google Drive, Google Hangouts, Dropbox, Twitter, Evernote, Salesforce, Mailchimp, Help Scout and appear.in.



01.08.15. Trello launched enterprise version with single sign-on support. Trello, the kanban-style project management app launched its enterprise service today. Trello already offered paid tiers for individuals and businesses, but enterprises obviously have slightly different requirements from startups and small teams that may or may not have gotten IT’s permission to use the service. So in addition to all the standard paid business features (permissions, membership control, etc.), the enterprise tier includes features like single sign-on support and intrusion detection. With the new single sign-on support, Trello users can integrate their existing Okta, OneLogin or other SAML-based login systems to use the service. The company’s regular business accounts are only integrated with Google Apps. In addition, the new paid tier includes phone and email support, as well as guaranteed file encryption at rest. Enterprise users will also get dedicated account managers.



19.09.14. Collaboration tool Trello hits 5 million users. Online project and task-management service Trello announced that it now has more than 5 million users. Functioning much like a visual to-do list, Trello shows what needs to be done, and what is happening at various stages of a project or assignment. The core Trello product is available for free, but it also offers Trello Gold as an option for users who want to take advantage of bigger file uploads, stickers, custom backgrounds and custom emoji support. There is also a Business Class offering for teams that want more granular control over logins, bulk-data exports and administrative-level controls. Still, most of the 5 million Trello users use the free version, and the company hasn't made a big push to convert users into paying customers.



2013. Trello introduced Business Class version. Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. It's used by thousands businesses and to meet theit demand, Trello is launching the Business version, that enables that extra control of the collaboration space. It features all the power of a Trello organization plus extra features like Google Apps integration, extra administrative controls for boards and members, one-click bulk data export, and a new, view-only observer role. Business Class gives administrators more control over your organization. With Business Class, you can connect your Trello organization to your business’s Google Apps account. On the Members page, you’ll see who in your organization has an account. If they aren’t in the organization yet, you will be able to add them with a single click. Since there are no member limits, you never have to worry about paying more for each new member.



2012. Microsoft Project will join Office 365. Together with SharePoint 2013 (probably in early 2013) Microsoft will release its project management system Microsoft Project 2013. These two systems have become inseparable, because SharePoint is used as a collaboration layer under the administrative component of MS Project. With the new version, this integration will become even tighter. You'll be able to start a new project by creating a simple page with a task list and calendar in SharePoint, and only when you need more close control over the project you'll be able to turn on this project management in the MS Project. But of course, the main news about Project 2013 is appearance of the online version Project Online, that will be available in the Office 365 cloud. And, (like in case with new SharePoint Online), developers will be able to create their own add-ons and even sell them via Office marketplace.


Project 2010
2009. Project 2010 to become a part of Sharepoint. Today at the MS Project Conference in Phoenix Microsoft previewed the next generation of its project management system MS Project 2010. And the new version is quite interesting. It's generally known, that the main lack of MS Project is that it's not suitable for collaboration. Common users never understood its interface, and it never provided collaborative tools. Microsoft fixed this problem in its own way. First, MS Project will work only on top of SharePoint 2010 Server and will be integrated in it. So users will be able to create a project site (with Gantt Chart and task list) and easily share it in Sharepoint. Second, Project 2010 will be connected to Exchange Server and all the project tasks will be available in Outlook, Outlook Web Access and Outlook Exchange for Mobile.
