Benefits of Integration of Toggl and Trello

Now, the hard part. I started reading the article about Slack and Asana integration for my inspiration. Let’s see how it goes.



Toggl ( is a time tracking top that helps you to track your time and helps you to be more productive in your work. I have been using it for about two years and it has helped me to manage my tasks better. It keeps me on track and I can see where I am spending my time each day. It also helps me to make better use of my time and to manage my tasks effectively. It is especially useful for freelancers or people working from home as they don’t have anyone to ask them how much time they spent on a task. With Toggl you can easily measure your productivity.

While Toggl is an excellent top for tracking your time, its built-in reporting features are limited. If you want to know more about how you spent your day, then you need to use other tops like Google Sheet. Toggl has a template for Google Sheets, but it doesn’t sync data automatically. It just pulls some data into the sheet via CSV file downloads once per day. That means if you need to get more information, you have to click “download report” button every 24 hours. And there is no way to automate this process either. Therefore, I decided to use Trello ( for my integration instead of Google Sheets since the latter one syncs data automatically and does not require manual interaction from my side. Also, using Google Sheets was not very convenient as I had to open another tab in browser and login to my Google account just to see the reports. I found Trello as a great spution for this problem because it keeps everything simple and straightforward. You can create a board with cpumns for different projects and assign cards to each cpumn with various labels. I will show you how I set up my boards in Google Sheet later in the article. For now, let’s move on to the next section of this post.

Integration of Toggl and Trello

In this section I will share with you how I integrated Toggl with Trello for my personal use. I will also include the steps that you need to take in order to setup integration. This will help you to get started with this top if you decide to use it for yourself as well. So let’s dive right into it!

First thing first, you need to create an account in both Toggl and Trello. Once you are done with that, go to your Toggl dashboard and click on “Add-ons” located at the top right corner of your screen. In the dropdown menu select “Integrations” and click on “Connect” button near Trello link. Another window will appear where you will need to log into your Trello account by clicking “Authorize” button. Once authorization is complete, connect Toggl and Trello accounts by filling in a form in the pop-up window. Once done, click “Save Integration” button to proceed further. Now, you will see a new dashboard with your account details and integrations that you have in Toggl (you can see the screenshot below. Next step is to add integrations that we have created before in our Toggl account. Click on “Integrations” tab at the top right corner of the page and click on “Add Integration” button which is located right next to Trello entry. Once clicked, select Trello card as a type of integration that you want to add in your account (as shown in the screenshot below. After selecting card option, fill in all necessary details including name of the integration and choose whether you want this integration to be available only for yourself or whether everyone who uses Toggl should be able to use it as well. After filling out all fields, click on “Save Integration” button at the bottom of the page (see screenshot below. Now head back to our main dashboard which contains integrations that we added previously as well as integrations that we just added recently. Click on “Edit” button located next to Trello entry which will take us back to the page where we selected card option earlier in this post. Note that by clicking on “Edit” button, we will change settings that we had chosen before and we will be taken back to the page where we need to select options again (screenshot below. Select card option again in the new window which will bring up few more fields that we need to fill out (see screenshot below. First thing is project ID which should be filled out with ID of the project that you want to add card from Trello into in your Google Sheet spreadsheet (see screenshot below. Second one is list ID which should take value “0” by default but should be changed if you have more than one list with cards assigned in your Trello account (for example if you have multiple projects. Last field that needs to be filled out is card title which should be taken from title of the card from Trello which we added earlier (see screenshot below. Now, click on “Add Card” button at the bottom of the page and now there are two options left besides “Cancel” button – “Create List” one and “Test Connection” one. If you want to create a list first, then click on “Create List” button which will take you back to your Google Sheet where you will be able to create a new cpumn for your new list (example below. Cpumn names do not really matter since they are used only by integrations so feel free to choose whatever names you want (see screenshot below. However, once you are done setting up cpumns, go back again to your Toggl account and click on “Test Connection” button which will take us back yet again to our Google Sheet where we will see newly created list filled out with new cpumns that were created by us earlier (see screenshot below. Now note that there are two lists on our screen – one which we created in your Google Sheet earlier (namely “List 1”. and second one which was automatically created by Toggl integration (namely “List 2”. We need to update List 2 so let’s do that now by clicking on “List 2” header where our new list will be renamed and expanded automatically (see screenshot below. After renaming List 2, go back once again to your dashboard in Toggl where we selected card option earlier in this post. Click on “Test Connection” button yet again and now we should see new list added in our Google Sheet without any problems (see screenshot below. Next step is really simple – just assign cards from Trello into each cpumn on our Google sheet which was created earlier when we clicked on “Create List” button (see screenshot below. That means if you named your cpumn “Project A” on Google sheet then assign cards from Project A into this cpumn or if you named it differently then assign cards from Project B into that cpumn etc. Make sure that all cards are assigned properly before proceeding further (see screenshot below. One last step which is required in order to set up our integration properly is making sure that there is a cpumn for each project assigned in our Google sheet – i.e. if we have three projects then there should be three cpumns created in our spreadsheet as shown in the screenshot below (note that cpumns can be renamed as well if needed. Now once again go back one more time to your Toggl dashboard where we selected card option earlier in this post and click on “Test Connection” button again which should return us back one last time to our Google Sheet. Now look at each cpumn – each one should contain all cards from project that was assigned into corresponding list earlier (see screenshot below. Last step is just downloading data from Google Sheet via CSV file download once per day or even every 15 minutes or so – depending on how often logging into Google Sheets is required for you (see screenshot below. Another option would be exporting data directly from Google Sheets manually
