You're all done, you can now access your board in Gmail and sync actions in real-time between Trello and Gmail.

What can this integration do?

  • Export a Gmelius board to Trello. It will allow you to share it with stakeholders - not part of your Gmelius subscription, e.g., clients, partners.
  • Import a Trello board into Gmail to process your projects in Gmail and action all your emails as task cards- Converting emails into task cards can happen automatically or selectively via shared labels or your Gmelius buttons.
  • Rename and manage your board columns in Trello and in Gmail.
  • Delete boards from Gmail or Trello.

Task Actions

The current beta version allows you:

  • Create task cards from Trello or Gmail.
  • Automate the creation of email task cards in Trello.
  • Move task cards in Trello and Gmail.
  • Apply & update due dates.

What is synced inside a task card:

  • The task's description.
  • If an email task card, the description of the card will include part of the email body (n.b., character restrictions apply) and it will include the shared email permalink as an attachment.

Disable the integration
