Card Annotations
for Trello

Radiate more information, decrease label overload, increase shared understanding and facilitate asynchronous communication around your board with the help of our power-up

Annotate your cards with emoji symbols

Emojis are great for emphasizing content and conveying information. They take up only a tiny space on your cards but are still expressive and don't clutter your cards if you use many of them.

With the help of Card annotations Power-Up, you can use emojis to organize, categorize and prioritize your cards.

Create personal and
shared annotations

Create personal annotations if you want to mark some cards only for yourself. For example, if you create annotations like "My favorite cards" or "My top priority tasks" and assign them to cards, you can easily view and review a list of these cards later.

Shared annotations are mainly about improving transparency, communication, and collaboration between Trello board members. A team can create as many annotations as needed and use them to express any kind of information relevant to their workflow. You can even mark different work item types, priorities, or card statuses.

Add context when annotating a card

Unlike labels, you can add a short message or note when you mark a card with a certain annotation.
For example, if you mark a card as "Blocked", you can add a little message about the reason, like: "We are still waiting for the design assets".

Collect votes around a certain topic

By using Card annotations power-up, board members can vote on a certain topic represented by a votable annotation. They are also able to leave a comment on their votes.

Overview all of your annotations in a single place

There is a central place - a simple board menu - where you can overview all annotations and all cards marked with these annotations. It provides an easy way to list your cards by category, priority, status, or whatever aspect annotations are expressed by.

If it's a votable annotation, you can order cards by votes and vote comments, making it easy to identify top voted cards and get more insights by reading vote comments in a single place.

Avoid label overload by list-specific annotations

Besides annotations are small, expressive, and intuitive, you can prevent label overload by setting up list-specific annotations.
Using annotations to mark some sub-statuses can be quite useful. For example, you can use them to mark ‘Ready’ state of the tasks in a development team's ‘Backlog’ list. ‘Ready’ state flag is essential only in the ‘Backlog’ list, so you can create an annotation that is only visible in that list. You can also easily record your team's ‘Definition Of Ready’ in context by adding it as description of ‘Ready’ annotation.

Foster effective collaboration with card comments integration

Unlike labels, annotations can auto-create a card comment when you annotate a card, add a message to an annotation, or vote on them. This way, board members can get a notification when important information is added.
