Gmelius Updated by Gmelius

This is the first two-way Gmail to Trello integration that allows you to sync Gmail with Trello and vice-versa.

In this article, we'll cover:

  1. How to set up the integration
  2. What the integration can do

Export a Gmelius Board in Trello

1) Select a Board to Export

First stop, your Gmelius-powered inbox.

Access your Gmelius boards from the "Boards" menu in your inbox's left sidebar, and choose the board you wish to Export to Trello.

Note that, like with other integrations, you need to be the board owner to enable the Trello integration.

Click on More > Board Settings.

Under the option, Trello sync & choose Export to Trello.

Click on Export to Trello, and do the following in the modal that opens ups:

Here's what you should see:

3) Import your Trello Board in Gmail

Choose a Trello Board to import into Gmail.

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 Gmail.
  • Delete boards from Gmail or Trello.

Task Actions

The current 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:

  • Notes and mentions from Trello to Gmelius and the other way around.
  • Card priority and tags.
  • Status change.
  • The task's description.
  • If a card is based on an email, the card's description will be a part of the email body (n.b., character restrictions apply), and it will include the shared email permalink as an attachment.
Closing an email in your Gmelius board will archive it in Trello, and archiving a card in Trello will close it in your Gmelius board.

Disable the integration

You no longer need to sync a board with a client or a team; a collaborator changed or got carried away and shared the incorrect board? No worries, you can as easily disable the integration.

Go to More > Board Settings > Settings > Trello Sync > click on Remove Trello Integration.
