  2. Select “Google Sheets” from the list of Power-Ups and click on the “Enable” button.
  3. You will be prompted to authorize Trello to access your Google account. Follow the instructions to complete this step.
  4. Once you have authorized Trello, you will be able to select a Google Sheets spreadsheet to integrate with your Trello board. Choose the spreadsheet that you want to automate and click on the “Save” button.

Creating Automations

Now that you have set up the integration, you can start creating automations between Trello and Google Sheets. There are several ways to do this, depending on your needs. Here are a few examples:

  1. Create a new card in Trello when a new row is added to a specific sheet or tab in Google Sheets.
  2. Update a cell in Google Sheets when a card is moved to a specific list or column in Trello.
  3. Trigger an action in Trello when a specific cell value changes in Google Sheets.
