Trello started experiencing issues in the mid-morning hours of March 24, throwing workplaces that rely on the list-making application into chaos. Issues cropped up once again on July 26, but were quickly resolved.

As with anything digital, Trello is bound to experience the occasional outage. When that happens, there are a few places you can check for information about problems, report your own issues, and check out a timeline tracking the outage.

How to check Trello’s status

The first and easiest location for information about Trello is the Trello status website. You’ll find it with any quick Google search for “Trello Status.” When the site is experiencing issues, it will note that “Trello is slow or unavailable” and also that Trello’s “engineering team is actively investigating this incident and working to bring Trello back up to speed as quickly as possible.”

The site also contains a handy graph detailing the history of each of Atlassian’s products when it comes to outages. The March outage was labeled as “major” and remained listed as “unresolved” for several hours. The July outage is labeled as “partial” and was reportedly resolved within a few minutes. Following @TrelloStatus on Twitter will keep users up to date on any changes or crashes within the Trello system.

Another option for a slightly more thorough look at Trello outages is downdetector. The website — which specializes in outages exactly like this — tracks outages, allows users to report issues and provides a timeline of problems.

According to downdetector, issues with Trello started right around 10:40am back in March. They peaked for hours in the morning, but by around noon were resolved for at least a portion of users. Issues were entirely fixed by the early afternoon. The problem was resolved even faster in July. The majority of people experienced issues with the website itself, according to downdetector, but a small percentage — 10 percent — also struggled with the app.
