Adding a calendar to Trello can greatly improve your productivity and help you stay organized. As a Trello user myself, I’ve found that having a visual representation of my tasks and deadlines on a calendar view has been incredibly helpful. In this article, I’ll guide you through the process of adding a calendar to Trello and share some personal tips and tricks along the way.

Step 1: Enable the Calendar Power-Up

Trello offers a variety of Power-Ups that can enhance your boards with additional features. To add a calendar to your Trello board, you’ll need to enable the Calendar Power-Up.

  1. Open the board you want to add the calendar to.
  2. Click on the “Show Menu” button in the top right corner of your screen.
  3. Select “Power-Ups” from the menu.
  4. In the Power-Ups directory, search for “Calendar” and click on the “Add” button.

Step 2: Customize Your Calendar

Once you’ve added the Calendar Power-Up, you can customize it to suit your needs.

  1. Click on the “Calendar” tab in the right sidebar.
  2. Choose the calendar view format that you prefer. Trello offers both a monthly and weekly view.
  3. Toggle the visibility of labels and due dates on your calendar.

Personal Tip: I find it helpful to color-code my cards using labels and assign due dates to prioritize my tasks. This way, when I view my calendar, I can quickly identify what needs my attention.

Step 3: Navigate and Interact with Your Calendar

Now that you have a calendar on your Trello board, let’s talk about how to navigate and interact with it.

  1. Scroll through the calendar to view different time periods.
  2. Drag and drop cards from one date to another to reschedule tasks.
  3. Click on a card in the calendar to open it and view its details.
  4. Add due dates directly from the calendar by clicking on a date and selecting “Add due date”.


Adding a calendar to Trello can be a game-changer when it comes to staying organized and managing your tasks effectively. With the Calendar Power-Up, you can visualize your workflow, set deadlines, and prioritize your work. Remember to customize your calendar to fit your preferences and incorporate personal touches, such as color-coding and due dates. Happy organizing!
