Power-Up Your Productivity

Bring your Trello boards to the next level with Power-Ups and integrations.

By now you understand the Trello landscape: boards, lists, and cards. Let’s take a look at the Power-Ups, integrations, and developer platform that are going to get you a lot more bang for your productivity buck.

Power-Ups

Listen, we know Trello isn’t the only app your team is using to get things done (what?!). Bring apps and services like Slack, Bitbucket, Google Drive, Salesforce, and more into your Trello boards to keep all your data located and accessible in one place.

In a glance you are able to keep up to date on all the work getting done across every app. Power-Ups can also be used to customize cards, add automation, or get a new perspective on boards with capabilities such as Custom Fields, Card Repeater, Calendar, and more.

It's easy to add Power-Ups to your boards:

  1. Click the Power-Ups button on a board’s menu to open the Power-Ups directory.
  2. Click “Add” next to the Power-Up you would like to add to the board.
  3. Click the gear icon next to the add button to edit its settings and link any accounts from the apps you are integrating with the Trello board.
  4. For most Power-Ups, open a Trello card and click the new button for the Power-Up to begin adding information, files, and more to your cards. Or, click the Power-Up’s button at the top of your Trello board.

Quick note: Every board can have one Power-Up enabled for free, and Business Class and Enterprise team members can enable unlimited Power-Ups on their boards.

Make A Power Play

Teams are using Power-Ups to turn Trello boards into the ultimate app for getting things done. A lightweight CRM for startup sales teams, an email-free content management system, a design team powerhouse, and more.

Here’s a quick look at just a few different ways your department can get more done with Power-Ups.

Marketing Editorial Calendar

  • Start an article outline in Evernote and attach it to a card to pitch the idea.
  • Create a new Google Doc from Google Drive directly from Trello and compose the article.
  • Set a due date for publishing and visualize the pipeline with the Calendar.
  • Attach a Drive folder to the card so everyone can access the image assets for the post.

Sales CRM Pipeline

  • Attach Salesforce leads and opportunities to cards to quickly access important information.
  • Create Custom Fields for requests, quotes, and additional data points.
  • Securely manage and share contracts and documents with OneDrive.
  • Keep track of scheduled meetings and calls with the Calendar.

Integrations And Extensions

Customize your Trello experience even further with browser extensions, add-ons, and connectors made by both the Trello team and third party developers.

Use the Zapier and IFTTT connectors to automate your workflow between your favorite apps or within Trello itself. For instance, use Zapier to automatically create Trello cards from new Typeform entries, Gmail emails, or Evernote notes, so that you can put your mind to more important things.

Use IFTTT to create new Trello cards when items are added to Google Calendar, or when you take a photo you can have it automatically attach to a Trello card. The sky’s the limit, and you can create custom automations for whatever you like!

Browser extensions let you tweak Trello to create a more personalized experience when using Trello in the browser:
