The offline Iphone version only works up to a certain extent, because a lot of my powerups don't work on the Iphone. When I added the desktop version of Trello to my Macbook, I mistakenly thought it would have offline capability. I would love to see this happen!
I'm wondering though, what is even the purpose of a desktop version? Don't both the web and desktop versions do the same thing?
Indeed, it's even counter-productive to work with software that can leave our work unsaved, anytime, because of a shaky connection.
Shall you find any reliable alternative which enables importing our boards, please let us know since this thread ironically pushes us to workarounds amid the silence of Trello folks.
I'm done waiting as well!
Something as simple as a desktop offline app....and these guys can't do it.
I'm again a commuter, in flight most of the time, and I find myself jotting tasks in notepad to wait to get back online to pass them to trello. How crazy is that in 2019!
In addition to that, my company policy doesn't allow Windows Store installs....moreover, if I want to use a privacy browser, I have to do 3-4 steps as part of the sign in before actually getting to my boards...
I'll be trying alternatives, despite most like i'll be losing many of the nice features of Trello like Google integrations etc...but waiting over 2-3 years?! that's just poor customer service and lack of tuning into your users/customers!
Same for me. I'm commuting a lot and internet access is often shaky, so working offline and getting stuff sync as soon as being back online is a must have for.
Will look for a Trello alternative but actually would love to stick with Trello - if an offline mode would be supported.
I work with a global team and am often in the air trying to follow up an dprepare for other aspects. Not having access on my desktop device means I'm really limited to what I can acheive especially when travelling can be up to 20 hours or more. And the cost of data in the air is prohibitive.
We need an offline version quickly otherwise I'll have to return to multiple applications which allow me to work offline.
My feeling is no. I haven't seen it discussed on any of the public boards they post to. Between this issue, the need to card sync and the need to make certain cards private on team boards, Trello has become a real source of frustration for me and is actually beginning to make my work even more complicated. I'm continuing to use the product, holding out hope that they will get it together, but at the same time I'm starting to shop for other options that might suit me better.
I think I might have! I came across the app Notion a few days ago. It seems really promising and I was able to copy all of my boards over in a few minutes. That way I can test them out simultaneously.
I plan on playing with it in depth while I’m on vacation next week.
A few things I really like so far:
1. Offline functionality, both on my phone and laptop.
2. You have the ability to use either a card layout similar to Trello or an outline style like Todoist.
3. It seems like it will work really well with my google calendar and gmail. I’m hoping it works with Outlook and MS as my company is planning on switching in the future.
4. There don’t seem to be a ton of extra fees for additional features. I’m a Trello Gold member, but it’s frustrating af, to have a 3 power up limitation. I have 15+ boards which at most use 1 power up, but my main dashboard uses all 3 and I could easily use 3 more given the opportunity. Charging me extra to make my boards flow seamlessly when I’m already paying and i know they’ve no plans to help their customers is frustrating.
I will try to update later on! If anyone has an opinion about Trello vs Notion, please let me know!
Even Notion is not so "pretty" as Trello. Offline client for PC is great and free version in enough for my projects. Even it is not so minimalistic and simple as trello... I can use it! Trello is perfect, but... cannot use it, I have stop using it.
If some one has another tip what kaban tool is promissing like the Notion. please suggest. thank you.
Almost 2 years since the request was made, any updates from Trello team ?? I find it absolutely meaningless that a desktop app can't be used once internet connection is lost or unstable!
I have never seen a productivity solution that makes itself unavailable like this! Please don't cite mobile apps because I just need the desktop app to fully take advantage of Trello.
We are waiting for your updates!
I will try to get their attention in somewhere else. Because it's kind of important to me to have an offline option, i live in the country side, and i have not always wifi or 4G. But i still want to use Trello because i am building team on 3 projects. Please check your forum, and answer us.
What a pity. I like Trello so much.
But since Covid I have to often work on my laptop with sometimes unstable cellular connection and Trello loses sync not allowing me to create or edit cards.
It's 2020 already! There are service workers, Electron with behind-the-scene updates and god knows what else.
I'll look for alternatives :(
I'm astonished by the nonchalant attitude of those who are are supposed to listen to their customers on such a trivial feature request. Either they don't check their forum, or they simply do not care, taking things for granted. Meanwhile, this thread has turned into a lookout for alternatives.
Electron would be a great candidate, is it possible to transfer boards, lists and cards we have invested much time polishing them ?
Sorry, Electron is a technology to run web application on desktop OSes, like Windows. It would be easy for the Trello team to create desktop app with it that would work offline finely.
I found two recent articles on Trello alternatives, you can read them.
Currently working to pitch trello to my superiors, in order to apply all the great features you packed into this marvel of a tool, within a hospital/retirement home setting.
Would do a whole world of good there, especially during the pandemic.
Big hurdle for digital upgrades, like trello is sensitive data-protection.
An offline-enabled Desktop app/payment plan, would clear a major roadblock.
Anyway - keep it up and thanks for the great work!
Nothing specific really, I was just thinking aloud.
Basically , if you are good with caching technologies like workbox.js , you can catch your trello assets each time they are fetched from the server and save them on your localstorage, as either json, images, or texts depending on whether whatever you want to access locally is a kanban board, an image or text.
You will have to do an extra work of writing to your local storage (cache) and create triggers to push your changes to the server when you are back online.
