How To Get Trello Notifications

Ensuring that you receive timely notifications about changes and updates is essential for smoothly managing your projects on Trello. This guide will provide you with the necessary steps to ensure you never miss a Trello notification.

Enabling Trello Notifications

Before you can receive notifications, you need to enable them in your Trello settings. Here’s how:

  1. Log into your Trello account
  2. Click on your profile icon in the top right corner of the dashboard
  3. From the dropdown menu, select ‘Settings
  4. Scroll down to the ‘Notifications‘ section
  5. Turn on the notifications you want to receive
  6. Click ‘Save’ to apply the changes.

With these settings, you can choose to get notifications for a variety of events like card movements, due dates, mentions, and more.

Setting Up Email Notifications

Trello also allows you to receive email notifications, which can be highly useful if you do not regularly log into Trello. Here’s how to set it up:

  1. Follow the same steps above to get to your settings
  2. Navigate to the ‘Email Notifications‘ section
  3. Enable the types of email notifications you want to receive
  4. Click ‘Save’ to apply the changes.

Using Trello’s API

If you want more custom notifications, you can use Trello’s API. Here’s a simple example using Python:

       import requests
       key = 'your_key'
       token = 'your_token'
       idList = 'list_id'
       url = f"{idList}/cards?key={key}&token={token}"
       response = requests.request("GET", url)
       cards = response.json()
       for card in cards:
           print(f"Card name: {card['name']}")

This will print out the names of all the cards in the specified list. You could modify this code to send yourself a custom notification, like an email, whenever a new card is added.

To get notifications, be sure to replace ‘your_key‘, ‘your_token‘, and ‘list_id‘ with your actual Trello API key, token, and the id of the list you want to monitor.

Remember that managing your Trello notifications efficiently can significantly improve your productivity. So, take some time to familiarize yourself with these settings and set them up in a way that works best for you.
