Link to a public board.

I am setting up a board for others, the majority will not be Trello users, to view the board by a shared link. Is there a limit on how many views or persons that can view this board. It would be a board for highway closures or lane closures that truck drivers could view to see this information when planning a trip. Would this be a good use for a public board? Or any rules against using a Trello Gold account for this purpose?

@Tom WadeA public board can be seen by anyone, and there's no limit on sharing the url.

My concern would be if it's easy to use for Truck drivers, and if a map based view would not be more appropriate.

A map based view would be easier to read and locate a closure or restriction but requires more time to keep up to date or add a location. With Trello using custom fields to show the start and end date of the closure of a road or restriction on the face of the card and using Butler to delete or archive a card once the due date (due date is the end of the restriction or closure) is past will help with keeping it up to date. I get updates for road closures and restrictions from the state site by email and it is easier to create a card and copy and paste a picture of the detour and/or location on the card then to put the location on a map with the information needed to show the time frame. During this time of year, there may be 1 to 10 new or updates for road construction. Thanks for your reply.

Hi @Tom Wade ,

You can use a map with Trello:

Just add the power-up to your board, and off you go.

Will have to try that. Thanks.
