How To Make Trello Email

Trello is an incredible project management tool that simplifies team collaboration and makes it enjoyable. It is both free and adaptable, with a visual interface. Trello’s ability to send email notifications is a valuable feature. In this blog post, I will provide step-by-step instructions on how to configure Trello to send emails.

Setting Up Email Notifications

Trello’s email notifications keep you informed about what’s happening on your boards. You can customize the frequency of these notifications according to your preference. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Log into your Trello account.
  2. Go to your profile settings by clicking your profile avatar at the top right corner and selecting “Settings”.
  3. Scroll down to the ‘Email’ section.
  4. Choose your email notification frequency. You can select ‘Instantly’, ‘Periodically’, or ‘Never’.

Enabling Email-To-Board Feature

Trello’s email-to-board feature allows you to create cards by email. Once you enable this feature, you can create a new card on your board by simply sending an email to a specific address. Here’s how to enable this feature:

  1. Navigate to the board where you want to enable the email-to-board feature.
  2. Click on the “Menu” button on the right side of the board, then select “More” and “Email-to-board Settings”.
  3. Check the box that says ‘Enable’.
  4. Copy the email address that Trello provides. You can send emails to this address to create new cards on your board.

You can even choose which list the new card will be added to and who will be assigned to the card by default. The subject line of the email will become the card’s title, and the body of the email will be the card’s description.

Using Trello’s Email API

For developers who want to integrate Trello with their applications, Trello provides an email API. You can use this API to create, update, and delete cards via email. Here’s a simple example of how to use Trello’s email API:

    var Trello = require("node-trello");
    var t = new Trello("<your-api-key>", "<token>");

    var email = {
    subject: "New Card",
    text: "This is a new card.",
    };"/1/cards", email, function(err, data) {
    if (err) throw err;

Please note that you need to replace “” and “” with your actual API key and token.

That’s it! Now you know how to make Trello email. Use this feature to enhance your productivity and make your project management more efficient.
