Working with Cards in Trello

Adding Content to Cards

Clicking on the title of the card opens up the “back” of the card. Here you can assign members, add color labels, insert a checklist of tasks associated with the card, add a due date or insert an attachment. You may also add a description for the card and add a comment to the card. An activity list is kept for each card.
