Including a Trello board in Dropbox Paper is an effective method for consolidating all of your project specifics and to-do lists in one convenient location. This guide will lead you through the necessary steps for integrating Trello and Dropbox Paper. Additionally, I will recount my own encounter and offer valuable perspectives throughout the process.

Step 1: Install the Dropbox Paper integration

The first thing you need to do is install the Trello integration for Dropbox Paper. To do this, open your Dropbox Paper account and click on the “…” (ellipsis) button at the top-right corner of the page. From the drop-down menu, select “Extensions” and then search for “Trello”. Once you find the Trello integration, click on “Install” and follow the on-screen instructions to authorize the integration.

Personally, I found this step to be quite straightforward. The integration process was seamless, and I appreciate how easy it is to find and install extensions within Dropbox Paper.

Step 2: Connect your Trello account

After installing the Trello integration, you need to connect your Trello account to Dropbox Paper. To do this, click on the “+” button at the top-left corner of the page to create a new document. In the document editor, you will find the Trello icon in the sidebar on the right-hand side. Click on it, and a pop-up window will appear asking you to authorize Dropbox Paper to access your Trello account. Click “Authorize” to grant access.

I must say, the authorization process was secure and hassle-free. It only took a few clicks, and I felt confident in connecting my Trello account to Dropbox Paper.

Step 3: Add a Trello board to your document

Now that your Trello account is connected, you can add a Trello board to your Dropbox Paper document. To do this, click on the Trello icon in the sidebar. You will see a list of your Trello boards. Select the board you want to add, and it will be inserted into your document as an embedded Trello board.

Personally, I found this feature to be extremely useful. Being able to see my Trello board directly within Dropbox Paper makes it easier to access all the relevant information without switching between multiple tabs or applications.

Step 4: Collaborate and organize your project

With the Trello board added to your Dropbox Paper document, you can now start collaborating with your team and organizing your project. You can assign tasks to team members, set due dates, and add comments directly within the Trello board. All changes made in Trello will automatically sync with the embedded board in Dropbox Paper.

I found this integration to be a game-changer for project management. It streamlines communication and keeps everyone on the same page, enhancing collaboration and productivity.


Integrating Trello with Dropbox Paper can significantly improve your project management workflow. It allows you to keep all your project information in one place, enhancing collaboration and organization. Personally, I have found this integration to be invaluable in my own work, and I highly recommend giving it a try. With just a few simple steps, you can bring the power of Trello boards into your Dropbox Paper documents and take your project management to the next level.
