Hello there! Today, I’m going to share my personal experience and guide you on how to access Trello through Google. Trello is a fantastic project management tool, and integrating it with Google can make your work even more efficient and streamlined.
First things first, let’s talk about why you might want to access Trello through Google. The integration allows you to use your Google account to sign in to Trello, eliminating the need to remember yet another username and password. Plus, it offers seamless collaboration with other Google products like Google Drive and Google Calendar, making it a powerful combination for managing your projects.
To get started, make sure you have a Trello account. If you don’t have one, head over to https://trello.com/ and sign up. It’s free and only takes a few moments.
Step 1: Install the Trello for Google Workspace Add-on
The first step is to install the Trello for Google Workspace add-on. Open any Google Workspace app, such as Google Sheets or Google Docs, and click on “Add-ons” in the top menu. Search for “Trello” in the add-ons marketplace and click on “Install” to add it to your Google Workspace account.
Step 2: Connect Trello to Your Google Account
Once the add-on is installed, you’ll need to connect Trello to your Google account. To do this, open any Google Workspace app and click on “Add-ons”, then select “Trello for Google Workspace” and choose “Connect to Trello”. Follow the prompts to authorize the integration.
Step 3: Access Trello Through Google Workspace
Now that the integration is complete, you can access Trello through Google Workspace. Simply open any Google Workspace app and click on “Add-ons”, then select “Trello for Google Workspace” and choose “Open Trello”. This will open Trello in a sidebar within the Google Workspace app, allowing you to view and manage your Trello boards without leaving the Google environment.
I personally find this integration incredibly helpful. It enables me to have all my project-related information in one place, eliminating the need to switch between different apps constantly. I can create Trello cards directly from Google Workspace apps, attach files from my Google Drive, and even sync due dates with Google Calendar.
Some tips and tricks:
- Use the Trello for Google Workspace add-on to create Trello cards directly from emails in Gmail.
- Enable the Trello Power-Up for Google Drive to attach files directly from your Google Drive to Trello cards.
- Sync your Trello due dates with Google Calendar to stay on top of your deadlines.
Accessing Trello through Google Workspace brings together the power of two amazing productivity tools. It simplifies your workflow, enhances collaboration, and helps you stay organized. Give it a try and see how it revolutionizes the way you manage your projects.
