I am doing a demo of setting up a Kanban board using Trello. I can create boards, and associate them with a team (or vice versa). But... I can't seem to add members to my teams. The teams are fictitious as would be the members. Therefore the members have NO valid email addresses to use. How can I ADD members to a team without using an email address (...no invites need be sent...this is all for demo purposes).
Creating a fake email is a lot of effort just to make a placeholder. It would be great if this could be an added feature. I use Trello internally and want to create a placeholder for jobs I have sent externally - but I dont want them to have access or use our boards so visually seeing who I assigned it to would be great, But im not creating a fake email address just to do that.
Some email providers (e.g. gmail) allow you to add extra characters to an email and receiving the email to the same address. For example in gmail the following would be sent to the same inbox:
This allows you to construct email addresses as you wish and use them inside Trello.
You could create some dummy email accounts and confirm their email when creating a dummy trello account
or- there are some "bot" accounts you can add.
Thanks Matthew. I shall give this a try. I had asked Trello support and their response was basically it's not possible to do what I'm trying to do, i.e., build a demo Kanban with a fictitious cast of players (i.e, its only possible to invite folks to a Trello team unless said invitee has a valid email account AND has a Trello account also.)
But... Let me give your suggestion a try and I'll let you know what happens.
