How To Create Trello Cards From Gmail Emails (And Why Using A Teamopipe Gmail CRM Might Be More Convenient)

In today’s fast-paced digital world, the integration between our email and project management tools can significantly boost productivity. Trello, a popular project management tool, offers a way to create cards directly from Gmail emails. But before diving into the process, it’s worth noting that while Trello’s integration is useful, platforms like Teamopipe offer a more seamless experience, especially for SMBs. Let’s explore how to set up Trello cards from Gmail and why you might consider Teamopipe as a more convenient alternative.

Creating Trello Cards From Gmail Emails: A Step-By-Step Guide

1. Install the Trello Add-on for Gmail:
– Open your Gmail account.
– Navigate to the G Suite Marketplace and search for the Trello add-on.
– Click on the Trello add-on and select ‘Install’. Grant the necessary permissions.

2. Link Your Trello Account:
– Once installed, open an email in Gmail.
– Click on the Trello icon on the right sidebar.
– Sign in to your Trello account and grant Gmail access to your Trello boards and cards.

3. Create a Trello Card:
– With an email open, click on the Trello icon in the right sidebar.
– Choose the board and list where you want the card to appear.
– Modify the card title and description as needed. By default, the email subject becomes the card title, and the email body becomes the card description.
– Click on ‘Add Card’.

4. Add Attachments and Labels:
– If the email contains attachments, you can add them directly to the Trello card.
– You can also label the card for better organization.

5. Manage Cards Directly from Gmail:
– Once a card is created, you can move it between lists, add due dates, members, and more, all directly from Gmail.

Why Consider Teamopipe Over Trello For Gmail Integration?
