Hi @Valentina Solidani 👋

Welcome to the Community! To help with your Trello questions I've answered them point by point below:

  • Do we have to upgrate compulsory to Business Plan to access to Workspace? - The simple answer is no, you can access workspaces on Trello's free plan which are limited to 10 open boards at any time however it depends on you/your team's needs as there are limitations associated to the free plan. Read more here.
  • Can we keep the things the way they are now? - Yes you can, nothing has to change if the free plan is offering everything you need.
  • When I go to one of my boards and click on the workspace table, I get a message that says "Start free 14-day trial?" - The workspace table is a Business Class feature which allows a more collaborative view for you and your team. This is one functionality that is not offered in the free plan, however Trello offer a free trial so you can see if this new feature is beneficial for you.
  • Is it possible to use the Workspace tool for free, or do you need to upgrade? - It is possible to use the workspace feature on the free plan what isn't included is additional functionalities such as an unlimited number of workspace boards, workspace table view, timeline and calendar, and collections. You can find more information on this here.

I hope this has helped to clear your confusion but if you have any more questions please just ask away 😃

All the best,

Laura

thank you Laura.

 

If we decide to keep everything as it is . What will happen after the 28th April?

Just to clarify - Is that when your 14 day free trial finishes?

If we do not want to use Workspace at all and keep everything as it is now

I would recommend reading this article by Trello on the changes to workspaces as this should offer more insight in the changes coming >> https://help.trello.com/article/1263-moving-to-workspaces

Put briefly, Trello are changing Trello Teams (what you are using now) to workspaces and are requiring that all boards must exist within a Workspace. This can be done automatically so you do not have to worry.

Please keep in mind this won't change how you use and interact with your boards, it's simply a name change with extra features if you move to a paid plan.

What a horrible user experience. I don't want to hop on a free trial, and I don't want the stupid bar telling me I need to upgrade my workspace. 

Do I ever agre. Horrible user experience. "Simply a name change..." but everyone has to figure out what is all about, wonder what gets "broken" while bugs are sorted out, and determine what one needs to do. Poorly done, poorly explained, poorly presented, I would label this a PR debacle.
