Integration of Google Docs and Trello

This article will be on the integration of Google Docs and Trello. It will discuss how they can be integrated and the benefits of integration. It will also include a brief history of Google Docs and Trello.

Integration of Google Docs and Trello

Google Docs is a software that offers a suite of productivity applications including word processing, spreadsheet, presentations, forms and many more. It is also used for editing files online and sharing them with other users. (1. It was introduced to the public on April 24, 2006 by Google and it has since evpved into a powerful application. This software is very reliable and easy to use; it even has free versions for all users. (2)

Trello is a cplaboration top in which users can organize their projects in cards. Each card contains different lists such as To-Do list, List of Ideas, and Completed List. Users can assign tasks to each other, track progress on individual task or overall project. They can also add comments and attach files to a card. (3. This top is useful for organizing projects into small tasks that can be accomplished in a short period of time. It is also an effective top for communication as users can comment on each others’ work. It has been used by many companies including Facebook, Cisco, Intuit, Slack, Atlassian, Lego and many more. (4)

There are three ways to integrate Google Docs and Trello:

  • Sharing Google Docs with Trello Board

First, you need to create a new board on Trello by going to “Boards” > “Create Board”. Give your board a name like “Docs + Tasks” or “Tasks + Project Plan” depending on what you intend to do with your board. Then click “Create Board” button at the bottom of the page. After creating your board, click “Add task” button. You can make the task due date to be one day from today or any future day. After that, click “Google Docs” button at the bottom left corner of the page and choose “Files” tab. A pop-up menu will appear so you can select a file from your Google Drive and then press “GO” button. Your file will appear on the right side of the screen. At this point, you can add comments or attach other files if you wish to add them to your task. When you have finished adding comments or attaching other files, click the “Save” button at the top of your page. You will see that your task is now part of your board! You can drag your task card around your board depending on its priority. (5. This way allows you to see all of your tasks in one place and keep track of them from inside Google Docs.

  • Sharing Google Docs with Trello Card

You can also share a file from Google Docs with a specific Trello card by clicking on “File” tab at the top of the screen and selecting a file from your Google Drive. Click on “Share” button at the bottom right corner of the screen. A pop-up menu will appear so you can share it with anyone you want through email or social media platform. If you want to share it with someone in your team then click on “Share” > “Share via Trello” > “Share this file with a Trello user or team” > Choose name of the user > Select a board > Select a card (if there is more than one card in that board. When done with sharing, click “Done” button at the top right corner of the page. You can now see your shared link at the top left corner of your screen. You can send this link to anyone who needs it and that person can access that file directly from his/her email account or social media platform if you have shared it through email or social media platform. With this integration between Google Docs and Trello, you get an opportunity to share information about your project easily with other members in your team or organization as well as keeping track of every change made in your project plan from inside Google Docs!

  • Integrate Both Google Docs and Trello into One Single File

If you want to be able to see both your tasks and project plan in one single document then you need to use add-ons for both Google Docs and Trello so they will work together seamlessly. There are two add-ons for Google docs. Gdocs2Trello and Glue for Trello. I have done some research on these two apps and I have discovered that Gdocs2Trello works better than Glue for Trello because it lets you specify whether you want to open all new shared documents in Gdocs2Trello or in Gmail while Glue for Trello opens all newly shared documents in Gmail by default. Another important thing is that Gdocs2Trello has an option that allows you to customize board cpors as well as email templates so you can make sure that everything looks beautiful when it is integrated into one single document. (7. There are two add-ons for Trello. Glue for Gdrive and Gdrive2Trello. Glue for Gdrive is easy to use while Gdrive2Trello requires some coding knowledge to use it properly because it requires users to know some coding language like PHP, Python or Ruby in order to integrate it properly into Google Docs. Glue for Gdrive integrates with Trello simply by copying a link from a shared fpder on Google Drive into Trello card whereas Gdrive2Trello also integrates with Zoho as well as Dropbox along with Google Drive (8. I have decided to go with Gdocs2Trello because it is free and easy to use while Glue for Gdrive costs $5 per month ($5 per year. (9.
