How do I invite members to a personal board without having to add the board to a team?

I used to be able to invite members to a personal board without adding the personal board to a team but now it seems to be saying I have to add the board to a team first. Is there something I am doing wrong in my settings or is this a deliberate change by Trello/Atlassian?

Hi @Johanne Gilroy 

Welcome to the Community!

This is a new change within Trello.

Personal boards are now even more personal, to be able to add someone else to a board, you have to make a team. You can make a free team, move the board to that team, then add the individual to the board.

Hope that helps!

This is very disappointing.  There should be an option. You don't need a team for everything. Where can we submit feedback for this?

We are moving to a model where you can think of Teams as workspaces and all boards will be in a workspace. There are a lot of small changes we need to make (and some big ones) to get there but you can imagine the end state as all boards are in a workspace (and a workspace is essentially what we call a Team today). 

One of these changes is that you will be prompted to put your board into a Team if you are collaborating with other people. (It’s rolling out in stages) .

I am having this same issue... I am not longer able to invite users to my boards. If I create a team I am only able to have 10 boards in that team is that correct?
