How To Articles

As an avid user of Trello, I greatly appreciate the convenience of having all my tasks, projects, and notes neatly arranged in a single platform. One particularly useful feature is the option to access contacts directly within Trello. This allows for seamless collaboration with team members, sharing of contact details, and keeping all important information in a central hub.

To access contacts in Trello, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Install the Trello Contacts Power-Up

The first thing you need to do is install the Trello Contacts Power-Up. This Power-Up adds the functionality of accessing and managing contacts within Trello. To install the Power-Up, click on the “Show Menu” button in the top right corner of your Trello board, then select “Power-Ups”. In the Power-Ups section, search for “Contacts” and click on the “Add” button to install it.

Step 2: Add Contacts to Trello

Once you have installed the Contacts Power-Up, you can start adding contacts to Trello. To do this, open the card where you want to add a contact, and click on the “Contacts” button in the right sidebar. This will open the Contacts section where you can manage all your contacts.

To add a new contact, click on the “Add Contact” button and fill in the necessary details such as name, email, phone number, and any additional notes you want to include. You can also upload a profile picture for the contact to make it easier to identify them.

Step 3: Accessing and Using Contacts

Once you have added contacts to Trello, you can access and use them in various ways. Here are some examples:

  • Assign Contacts to Cards: If you have a card that requires collaboration with a specific contact, you can assign the contact to the card. This makes it easy to keep track of who is responsible for the task and ensures that all relevant contact information is readily available.
  • Share Contact Details: If you need to share contact details with team members, simply open the Contacts section, select the contact you want to share, and click on the “Share” button. Trello will generate a shareable link that you can send to others, allowing them to view the contact’s details.
  • Filter and Search Contacts: Trello also allows you to filter and search contacts based on specific criteria. This can be useful when you have a large number of contacts and want to quickly find a specific person.


Having the ability to access contacts within Trello is a game changer for efficient collaboration and organization. With the Contacts Power-Up, you can easily add, manage, and share contact details right from your Trello board. By integrating contacts into your workflow, you can streamline communication, improve task delegation, and keep all relevant information easily accessible.
