How to Create Cards by Email in Trello

  • MORE

One of my favorite Trello features is probably one of the least-used by Trello users. It’s not their fault, as the feature is somewhat hidden by default, but the ability to send notes to Trello and automatically create a new card with them definitely makes the service more convenient. Here’s how it’s done.

7. Save it in the address book of your email provider. If you’re a Gmail user, you can just send an email using the address and it’ll automatically save it for next time.
