Creating a new board

A board can represent anything and have a variety of uses. You could use it to manage a project, track your progress, or use it as a resource for anything you need to accomplish. Boards are an important aspect of Trello and where your Trello content will be located.

Adding a new board

Create a new board from anywhere in Trello by clicking the "+" button in the header and selecting "Create Board…" in the drop-down menu.


Add a new board or Workspace.

Before a new board is created, it must first be given a name and have a Workspace associated with it. Enter a name for your new board, select the Workspace that it should be associated with. You can also adjust the board's visibility or select a new background before creating it as well.

Whether creating a new board or copying an existing board, your board will need to be associated with a Workspace. You can select an existing Workspace for the board, or, create a new Workspace.


(When creating a Board, you can choose one of your existing Workspaces. You can also Create a new Workspace if you don’t have any available)

Organizing your boards into Workspaces also helps you to collaborate with your other Workspace members smoothly, giving shared access to all content within that space.

If you’re concerned about privacy within your Workspace, you can tweak the Board Visibility settings to decide who should have access to your board: everybody or just those you invite.

Existing boards can be moved into any Workspace for which you have the permission to add content:

Board Access

You can invite members to your board, your Workspace, or both. Granting members access to your newly created board does not automatically extend to the Workspace. To make sure members can access all boards within the Workspace, add the members to the Workspace with the following steps:

  1. Select your Workspace on the home page at

  2. Select the "Members" tab

  3. Click the "Invite Workspace Members" button in the left sidebar and enter the email address or Trello username of the individual you would like to add to your Workspace.

You can also invite others to your Workspace by sharing a special link with them. Read more about that here.

Note: You must be an admin of a Workspace to add members.
