How To Add Trello Calendar To Gmail

Adding the Trello calendar to Gmail is a great way to organize your tasks and deadlines in one place. As a frequent user of both Trello and Gmail, I have found this integration to be incredibly useful. In this article, I will guide you through the step-by-step process of adding the Trello calendar to Gmail, sharing my personal experiences and tips along the way.

Step 1: Install the Trello Calendar Power-Up

To begin, you will need to have the Trello Calendar Power-Up installed in your Trello board. If you haven’t already, open your Trello board and click on the “Show Menu” button in the top right corner. From the menu, select “Power-Ups” and search for “Calendar”. Click on the “Calendar” Power-Up and then click the “Enable” button to add it to your board.

Step 2: Obtain the Calendar URL

Now that you have the Trello Calendar Power-Up enabled, you need to obtain the Calendar URL. Go back to your Trello board and click on the “Show Menu” button again. This time, select “Calendar” from the menu. In the Calendar view, locate the “Settings” icon (represented by a gear) in the top right corner and click on it. From the drop-down menu, click on “Calendar Settings”.

In the Calendar Settings, you will find the Calendar URL under the “Calendar Feed” section. Click on the “Copy” button next to the URL to copy it to your clipboard.

Step 3: Add the Trello Calendar to Gmail

Now that you have the Calendar URL, it’s time to add it to Gmail. Open your Gmail account and click on the “Settings” icon (represented by a gear) in the top right corner. From the drop-down menu, select “Settings”.

In the Settings page, navigate to the “Calendar” tab. Scroll down to the “Other Calendars” section and click on the “Add by URL” link. A dialog box will appear where you can enter the Calendar URL. Paste the URL that you copied from Trello into the box and click the “Add Calendar” button.

Your Trello calendar should now be added to Gmail. You can view it by clicking on the “Calendar” icon in the left sidebar of your Gmail account. The Trello calendar will appear alongside your other calendars, allowing you to see your tasks and deadlines all in one place.

Personal Tips and Commentary

As someone who juggles multiple projects and tasks, having the Trello calendar integrated with Gmail has been a game-changer for me. It eliminates the need to switch between Trello and Gmail to stay organized, saving me valuable time and effort.

One tip I have is to color-code your Trello cards to make it easier to distinguish between different tasks or projects. By assigning each card a specific color, you can quickly identify which tasks are associated with each project when viewing the Trello calendar in Gmail.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the Trello calendar in Gmail is read-only. This means that you cannot make changes to your Trello cards directly from the Gmail calendar view. To edit or update a task, you will need to go back to the Trello board itself.


Adding the Trello calendar to Gmail is a simple and effective way to streamline your workflow and keep track of your tasks. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can integrate Trello and Gmail seamlessly, allowing for better organization and efficiency in your daily life.
