Trello Is Always Better When You Use Email

352 ratings | 38053 views
Did you know that each Trello board has its own unique email address? It allows you to create new cards just by sending an email. It’s great for transforming valuable messages directly into Trello cards. And of course, you can also create new cards just by sending a quick email to your Trello address. But that’s not all. Trello makes it super easy to reply to comments with your cards. If you receive notifications via email, you can reply directly to those comments without ever needing to open up Trello. Watch this video to learn how to use Trello and email to your advantage. Do you need help with Trello?

You are most welcome, Kylie. Enjoy trying out the new possibilities that email brings to Trello!

why is there no option on your gmail Add-in to add an comment on a task? it does not give an option to search for boards or cards either. There is only a create task option on your gmail add-on :-(
Simpletivity (3 months ago)
Yes, this add-on is primarily designed for getting info into Trello. Then you can start to add more details once the card is created.

+ANDY STRUNK hi Andy can you program in zapier a specific card (always with same card with check list, tickets and members) to be created with the new e-mails in
ANDY STRUNK (4 months ago)
Take a look at Zapier. I have a zap that creates a card every time I star an email in Gmail. You can create the card with any of the email details you choose, even attachments and a link back to the email.
Simpletivity (5 months ago)
That's true. I'm not aware of a way to easily link back to the original email from within Trello.

great video...thanks mate. quick query...in my trello board..i have a list called 'To Do' and in that list a card named 'Groceries'...the card just contains a check list of items to buy..say i have 4 items in that card at the mo...is there a way i can add a 5th item as check list in that card using this mail feature?
Tanmoy Roy (5 months ago)
+Simpletivity thanks for the confirmation mate... May be something for the dev to consider working in their next sprint cycle 😉
Simpletivity (5 months ago)
You can add a number of things to a card via email. But unfortunately, checklist items is not one of them. Sorry.

is there any way to have an alarm go off to remind you to open certain cards
Simpletivity (1 year ago)
Great question, Josephine. If you’re using Chrome, Safari or Firefox, your browser can generate desktop notifications. To turn this on in Trello, go to your Account settings and select “Enable Desktop Notifications".

thank you so much for this really helps alot. But do you think its "safe" to fwd. important personal emails to trello?
Simpletivity (1 year ago)
You can remove or edit stickers by following these instructions: http://help.trello.com/article/826-adding-and-removing-stickers-from-cards
LulusPlannerlife Gmz (1 year ago)
Thank you.😊 So very true though I try not too. And besides I only use it for personal planning. I really have groups but good to know. Im still trying to figure out how to undo stickers.
Simpletivity (1 year ago)
That's a very good question. We should always be mindful of who we are sharing our information with. And of course you may want to be extra careful when forwarding emails to a board you share with others.

Hi Scott, this video is very usefull, but I do not understand the second part from 6.00 min. How send me Trello this card in e-mail? I tried it but I did not receive it...
Csaba Kozma (1 year ago)
Thank you Scott, it is very helpful me. :-)
Simpletivity (1 year ago)
You will need to have notifications turned on in Trello in order to receive email updates. However, depending on your notification settings, you may not always receive every email. For example, if you have already opened that card in Trello (acknowledged the update), then Trello will not send you an additional email. You can find more details here: http://help.trello.com/article/793-receiving-trello-notifications

Hi Scott, in your video I see that you get an email as a reminder in Trello. How do you do that? I already have a 'Trello' agenda in my Google Calendar, but sometimes I would prefer an email as a reminder. Thanks a lot for your helpful videos. Since I discovered you I use Trello a lot. The best storage app for me is Evernote, but this is not so good as a project manager tool or a ToDo list.
Simpletivity (2 years ago)
You're most welcome, Christian. Thanks for watching and subscribing. To edit your email notification settings in Trello, go to your Profile Settings by selecting your name in the top right corner. Under Settings, you will see a section called Notifications where you can change the frequency.

I'm looking at my trello and I do no have the menu options that you do. Is this tip for the paid trello accounts?
Simpletivity (2 years ago)
+Phoenix Kelly TV Glad you found the Menu. There are a lot of great features you can find within.
The Stiletto Mogul (2 years ago)
Oh no, I've found it!
