Connecting your Google Drive account with Trello is a fantastic method to simplify your work process and enhance the convenience of file sharing and collaboration. As someone who regularly utilizes both Trello and Google Drive, I have discovered this integration to be immensely beneficial. In this article, I will walk you through the process of linking your Google Drive account to Trello and also provide some personal tips and comments.

Step 1: Open Trello and go to the board

First, open Trello and navigate to the board where you want to link your Google Drive account. It could be an existing board or a new one you create specifically for this purpose. Once you are on the board, click on the “Show Menu” button at the top right corner of the screen to reveal the board menu.

Step 2: Click on “More” and select “Google Drive Power-Up”

In the board menu, click on the “More” option, which is represented by three dots. A dropdown menu will appear with several options. Scroll down and select “Google Drive Power-Up” from the list. This will open the Google Drive Power-Up settings on the right side of the screen.

Step 3: Connect your Google Drive account

In the Google Drive Power-Up settings, you will see a button that says “Connect Account”. Click on this button to initiate the process of linking your Google Drive account to Trello. A new window will open, prompting you to sign in to your Google account if you are not already signed in. Once signed in, you will be asked to grant Trello access to your Google Drive account. Click “Allow” to proceed.

Step 4: Configure Google Drive settings in Trello

After connecting your Google Drive account, you can customize the settings for how Google Drive integrates with Trello. You can choose to display Google Drive attachments as links or preview the files directly in Trello. You can also choose whether to show the Google Drive logo on the front of the Trello card. Adjust these settings according to your preference.

Step 5: Link Google Drive files and folders to Trello cards

Now that your Google Drive account is linked to Trello, you can start linking specific files and folders to Trello cards. To do this, open the card you want to link the file or folder to, click on the attachments section, and select “Google Drive” from the options. You will be able to search for and select the file or folder you want to link. Once selected, the file or folder will appear as an attachment on the card.


Linking your Google Drive account to Trello can greatly enhance your workflow and productivity. With this integration, you can easily collaborate on files, access important documents, and keep all your project-related files organized in one place. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can seamlessly link your Google Drive account to Trello and take advantage of the benefits it offers.
