Use Trello Backgrounds to Find Your Boards at a Glance

One of my favorite features of Trello is the ability to change the background color or image for each board. Not only does this help customize and beautify each board, the background color serves as a kind of shortcut in your browser, particularly when you have many tabs open. It's a small, but handy productivity boost.

Set up a different color or background image for each board by going to Show Menu > Change Background. Then when you have multiple Trello boards open, you'll be able to spot any board you need thanks to the different tab icons.

Trello's free plan gives you nine colors to choose from for your background. If you have the Business Class plan ($9.99/month), you can select photos or patterns and textures for your background or upload an image of your own for complete personalization. Even animated GIFs work as backgrounds!
