Anyone using Trello instead of a Facebook group or Might Networks?

Hi Community, 

I'm interested to hear if anyone is using Trello as a community platform for an online community, instead of for example Facebook group or Mighty Networks?

We really like the simplicity of the tool, but wonder how to use it with a group because as far as I know there isn't a way to notify all members about new content. Or is there?

I use Trello for managing communities on Discord, but not everyone is on board with using it. You could use Power-Ups like Board Chat for communication between group members on individual boards under a workspace. Notifying members about content can be done with a Butler automation that sends out emails to them.

I’ve done it before! Admittedly it’s hard if the other folks aren’t into trello or used to it. But it’s definitely doable! 

I used lists to organize categories, and each new card was a topic for discussion (like an article or question, etc.) people could engage by adding comments, creating their own cards with questions/topics, etc 


this was years ago when I tried it and I actually think it would work even better now with things like the voting power up to upvote topics, and automation to manage notifications and labels for topics, and dashcards or other reporting tools for seeing what types of posts are most popular
