Adding a new member to Trello is effortless. As someone who depends on Trello for managing projects, I appreciate the ease of having all team members involved and working together seamlessly. In this post, I will walk you through the process of adding a new member to Trello, while incorporating my own personal tips and insights.

Step 1: Log in to Trello

Before we can add a new member, we need to log in to our Trello account. Go to the Trello website ( and enter your login credentials. If you don’t have an account yet, you can easily sign up for a free one.

Step 2: Open the Team Menu

Once you’re logged in, you’ll be taken to your Trello dashboard. On the left-hand side of the screen, you’ll see a list of all your teams. Find the team to which you want to add a new member and click on its name to open the team menu.

Step 3: Click on “Add Members”

In the team menu, you’ll find a list of options for managing your team. Look for the “Add Members” option and click on it.

Step 4: Enter the Member’s Email Address

A modal window will pop up, prompting you to enter the email address of the new member you want to add to your team. Make sure you have the correct email address, as this is where the invitation to join your team will be sent.

Step 5: Customize Member Permissions (Optional)

By default, the new member will have the same permissions as other team members. However, if you want to customize their permissions, you can do so by clicking on the drop-down menu next to their email address. You can choose from options like “Observer,” “Normal,” or “Admin,” depending on the level of access you want to grant them.

Step 6: Add a Personal Message (Optional)

Adding a personal message is a nice touch when inviting someone to join your team. It can make them feel more welcomed and give them a sense of what your team is all about. To add a personal message, simply type it into the text box provided in the modal window.

Step 7: Click on “Send Invitation”

Once you’re satisfied with the email address, permissions, and personal message (if applicable), click on the “Send Invitation” button. Trello will then send an invitation email to the specified email address, inviting the new member to join your team.
