The first step is to create a Trello card for the task or project that you’re working on. To create a card, simply click the “Add a card” button in the list where you want to add it. Give your card a descriptive title and click “Add” to create the card.

Step 2: Open the Attachment Section

Once you have created the card, open it by clicking on it. This will open the card details view, where you can add more information and attachments. To attach a shared OneDrive file, scroll down to the “Attachments” section.

Step 3: Click on the OneDrive Icon

In the “Attachments” section, you will find a variety of options for attaching files. Look for the OneDrive icon, which looks like a blue cloud. Click on the OneDrive icon to access your OneDrive account.

If you’re not already signed in to your OneDrive account, you will be prompted to do so. Enter your login credentials and click “Sign in” to proceed.

Step 5: Select the Shared File

Once you’re signed in to your OneDrive account, you will be able to browse through your files and folders. Locate the shared file that you want to attach to your Trello card. You can use the search bar or navigate through your folders to find the file.

Step 6: Attach the File

Once you have found the shared file, click on it to select it. You will see a preview of the file, along with some options for attaching it. You can choose to attach the file as a link or as a copy. Select the option that suits your needs and click “Attach” to attach the file to your Trello card.

That’s it! You have successfully attached a shared OneDrive file to your Trello card. Now, whenever you or your team members access the Trello card, they will be able to easily view and collaborate on the attached file.
