What are Swimlanes?

How to use Trello Swimlanes

The first thing people often do is group by Member to see each team members work load individually. You can see who has the most work planned, who has work at what step of the process and etc. If you are using labels or custom drop down fields, grouping by those can be a great way to understand your data from a new perspective. You can even group by custom number or text fields.

You can also use Swimlanes to view your Trello cards as sub tasks. If you assign a custom field value as the top level task (ie website migration) then you can group by that custom field to see cards as subtasks of each parent task.

You can even drag and drop cards in the swimlanes view. For example you can drage between member swimlanes to change the assignment, or between labels and to add/remove the respective labels.
