How To Articles

Including a Trello task within Slack is an excellent method for staying organized and optimizing your workflow. As an individual who highly values organization and efficiency, I have found this integration to be extremely beneficial.

Step 1: Install the Trello App for Slack

The first thing you need to do is install the Trello app for Slack. To do this, navigate to your Slack workspace and click on the “Apps” section. Search for “Trello” and click on the Trello app. Then, click on the “Add to Slack” button.

Once the app is installed, you will need to authorize the integration by signing in to your Trello account.

Step 2: Connect Your Trello Boards to Slack

Now that the Trello app is installed, it’s time to connect your Trello boards to Slack. In Slack, open the channel or direct message where you want to add Trello tasks. Type “/trello” followed by the name or URL of the Trello board you want to connect.

For example, if you want to connect the board named “Product Development” in Trello, you would type “/trello Product Development”.

Step 3: Add Trello Tasks in Slack

Once you have connected your Trello board to Slack, you can start adding tasks directly from Slack. To add a Trello task, simply type “/trello add” followed by the task name and description.

For example, if you want to add a task called “Update website content” with the description “Review and update the website content to reflect the latest changes”, you would type “/trello add Update website content – Review and update the website content to reflect the latest changes”.

Step 4: Customize Trello Task Details

By default, the Trello task added in Slack will be created in the “To Do” list of the connected Trello board. However, you can customize the Trello task details by using additional commands in Slack.

For example, you can use “/trello add @member” to assign the task to a specific team member, or “/trello add #label” to add a label to the task.


Adding Trello tasks in Slack is a simple yet powerful way to integrate these two popular productivity tools. With this integration, you can easily create and manage tasks without having to switch between different platforms. By following the steps outlined above, you can enhance your workflow and stay organized in a more efficient and seamless manner.
