How To Add A Hyperlink In Trello

How To Articles

Including hyperlinks on Trello can be a valuable method to offer extra context or link to external resources in your cards. As someone who uses Trello, I have found this functionality to be exceptionally helpful in arranging and retrieving pertinent details. In this article, I will lead you through the steps of incorporating hyperlinks in Trello.

Step 1: Open the Card

To add a hyperlink to a Trello card, start by opening the card you want to add the hyperlink to. You can do this by clicking on the card’s title or by selecting the card from your Trello board.

Step 2: Open the Card Back

Once you are inside the card, locate the card back. You can find this by clicking on the “Open Card Back” button in the right sidebar. The card back is where you can add descriptions, comments, and attachments to the card.

Step 3: Add a Description

In the card back, you can add a description to provide more details about the card’s content. To add a hyperlink, simply type the text you want to use as the link and then highlight it.

Step 4: Insert the Hyperlink

With the desired text highlighted, click on the “Insert/edit link” button in the toolbar. This button looks like a chain link icon. A small window will appear where you can enter the URL you want to link to. Make sure to include the full URL, including the “https://” or “http://” prefix.

For example, if I want to link to a blog article titled “10 Tips for Effective Task Management,” I would enter the URL as:

Step 5: Customize the Link Text (Optional)

If you want to customize the displayed text for the hyperlink, you can do so by modifying the text in the “Text to display” field. By default, the highlighted text will be used as the link text.

Step 6: Save the Hyperlink

Once you have entered the URL and customized the link text (if desired), click the “Save” button to add the hyperlink to the description. The text you highlighted will now be clickable, leading to the specified URL.
