In my job of running ecosystem partner relationships for BlueJeans, I work with dozens of companies and often have multiple projects going on at the same time. I’m often asked, “what’s the status of our activities with XYZ?” As such, being able to quickly recall all the details across many relationships can be challenging.
There’s no shortage in productivity apps available, and I’ve tried many over the years. Most I’ve used for a few weeks only to abandon them due to their complexity or because I just couldn’t build the habit of making it my go-to-tool—until Trello, Atlassian’s project management tool.
About a year ago someone suggested I try Trello. Once I dug into it, I quickly realized its power for managing programs. Trello’s boards, lists, and cards enable you to organize and prioritize your projects in a fun, flexible and rewarding way, so that you can work more collaboratively and get more done.
This year, BlueJeans released a “power-up” to make Trello even more powerful. Power-ups are ways of integrating many different types of 3rd party applications into Trello. The BlueJeans Meetings Power-Up is built for teams to have superior video communications with each other right within the Trello board interface. BlueJeans’ download free browser-based experience is perfect for Trello users to conduct stand up and planning meetings.
With BlueJeans, power-up users can launch BlueJeans video meetings directly from within Trello to communicate live with one or more colleagues on a project all within the Trello interface. There’s no need to call or email someone for an update, and there’s no need to schedule a separate meeting toggle between apps to dig into an action item. Just point and click on the installed BlueJeans power-up and boom, you’re in a BlueJeans video meeting with your colleagues.
Now you know how Trello and BlueJeans can accelerate project timelines and increase productivity by connecting teams through embedded video meetings from directly inside the Trello application window.
You too can get the power of BlueJeans video communications from within Trello by visiting the Trello Power-Up network.
