Benefits of moving from Free to Business Class

I'm trying to gather reasons as to why moving from Trello free to the Business Class is beneficial for my work team (and spending the dosh). I've checked your Business Class page and can see the benefits there, however I couldn't find information on data. We keep a lot of client related data on our free version, and I'm worried that it'll eventually disappear once we hit some sort of limit on the free version. Is this true?

 

On the free version, I’ve also been able to add people from outside our team (clients, contractors, etc.) to boards, same person to several boards. However on the Business Class it looks like I can only add a person from outside the organisation to one board as a guest and then I have to start paying for them (if I want to add the same person to several boards that is). Have I understood this correctly? Why is this possible on the free version but limited drastically on the Business Class version?

 

Trello also has a support page that says that removing a team member that no longer works in the company is possible, without removing their comments or work history on Trello boards. Is this valid also on the free account, or only on the Business version?

 

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi @Rebekka Scheller 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I'm trying to gather reasons as to why moving from Trello free to the Business Class is beneficial for my work team (and spending the dosh).

You don't lose any data from the board because there is no limit on the cards a board could have. You might face issues in power-ups, automation, boards(if more than 10), etc.

You can compare the features & pricing from this page and choose these suit for you and your team! https://trello.com/pricing

The business Class plan has a lot more features and functionality than the free plan doesn't offer!

It is valid on all the plans for Trello!

I hope I have answered all your questions!

If you want more advanced support on billing, pricing & features you can ask Trello support

Have a nice day!
