Yoke uses OAuth1 and secure REST APIs to connect to Trello.
You can track the following measures in your Trello account:
A machine learning algorithm figures out the regular update frequency for Trello items tracked in a Yoke card, and warns you if some items haven't been addressed in a while.
You can query your Trello cards from Slack using slash commands.
The Yoke Auto-Bookmarks Extension turns the Trello "cards" picked up by your Yoke cards into bookmarks in Chrome.
Trello is great for planning and review. Yoke cards help focus on execution, by turning complex boards into simple to-do lists and activity feeds.
If your team uses Trello for project management, you can keep track of "recent cards actions made by others" to stay up-to-date. This is also useful for public/shared boards with useful information such as Trello resources.
Kanban boards rely on the same cards moving down the lists from left to right. To maintain continuity, try to make the Trello cards self-sufficient in information. Track sub-tasks in each stage as separate checklists. Assign members to cards to clearly define ownership. Archive cards that don't require any additional action.
Consider a simple board with three lists: Ready to Develop, In Progress, Ready to Deploy. In a software team setting,
Trello lets users assign labels to cards to mark exception statuses such as "Blocked" or "Ready for Review". Managers can also use Yoke cards based on a Trello search string to pick up such exception cards.
