TRELLO WORKFLOW

LAST UPDATED: 08/20/19

1. TAKING IN A NEW PROJECT

• Create a Trello Card for the project in To Do

• This can be done either by creating the card in Trello, or if the email request has enough info, you can forward the email to To Do and it will create a card

• Name the card according to agent/project type

• ex. a business card for Ann Porter would be named Ann Porter - BC

• Fill in the relevant custom fields, add label(s)

2. IN PROGRESS

• As long as you have all of the relevant information for the project, you can work on it!

• Move the card from To Do to In Progress

• *NOTE: Cards should only be in In Progress if you are actively working on them

3. OUT FOR PROOF

• Once you have a proof completed, check the due date as complete and it will kick over to Out for Proof, per the rule we set up. (Don’t forget to actually send it out for proof!)

4. REVISIONS

• If an agent comes back to you with changes, move the card from Out for Proof back to either To Do or In Progress, depending on your workload/when you can get to it and urgency

• Revisions should not take more than 2 business days to complete

• Once revisions are done, move back to Out for Proof.

• Repeat as necessary, until project is approved

FAMILY of COMPANIES

5. APPROVED | READY FOR PRINT

• Once the project is approved, move from Out for Proof to Approved | Ready for Print

• Proceed to order as outlined within the custom fields

• Example: Ann Porter loves her cards and is ready to order. I need her credit card info and billing address. Quantity, stock, finish, & printer should all be filled out in Custom Fields

6. DONE

• Once the project has been ordered, move the card from Approved | Ready for Print to Done!

7. STUCK

• If an agent sends in a project, but does not include all of the info you need before you can start working on it, move the card to Stuck and reach out to them

• If they still do not provide the necessary information, reach out in another two days and loop in ASC & manager, then every day after that until they respond

• If they decide to not move forward at this time, move the card to Cancelled, otherwise proceed with regular workflow

8. FOLLOWING UP

• Agents can be hard to get a hold of or get an answer from. If you do a project and don’t hear back, a follow-up is imperative

• If you send out a proof and don’t hear back within 2 business days, send a friendly reminder email, or give them a call to make sure they got the proof

• If you still don’t hear back another two days later, give them a call

• If they don’t answer and don’t call you back, send another email and loop in their ASC and manager

• Still having trouble getting an answer? Call and kindly let them know that you’re setting the project aside and that they can email or call you whenever they’re ready to move forward
