Step 3: Create a Trello Board

Now that your Trello account is linked to Slack, you can create a Trello board. Open Trello in your web browser or use the Trello app on your mobile device. Click on the “Create new board” button and give your board a name. Customize the board according to your needs by adding lists, cards, and labels.

After adding the Trello app to the Slack channel, you will be prompted to select the Trello board you want to add. Choose the board you created in Step 3 from the dropdown list and click “Authorize”. The Trello board will now be added to the Slack channel.

Step 6: Collaborate on Trello Board within Slack

Once the Trello board is added to the Slack channel, you and your team can now collaborate on the board directly within Slack. You can view and interact with the Trello cards, add comments, move cards between lists, and even create new cards without leaving Slack. This integration makes it incredibly convenient to stay organized and keep track of tasks without switching between multiple apps.
