How to set up Trello-Outlook integration

As Outlook is one of the most popular email services, we believe that the problem of Outlook integration is highly important for the big number of Trello users. In this article, we’re going to share 3 powerful tips on how to sync both tools for different reasons and make your workflow much easier and more effective.

Sync Trello calendar with Outlook

If you’d like to have a single view of all your tasks and events across Trello boards and Outlook calendar, Planyway power-up may come in handy. It allows you to visualize your Trello tasks on the calendar or timeline view as well as connect external calendars like Outlook, Google, Apple, etc.

 When you have the Outlook account connected, you can not only view events along with Trello cards, but edit them if needed. 


Also, it’s possible to sync it the other way so that you can view Trello cards in Outlook.

Turn Outlook emails into Trello cards

Email is one of the sources where we can get new tasks, right? So rather than creating new cards in Trello manually, you can do transform emails into Trello cards automatically using the Trello board unique email.

Open Trello Menu, click More, and then Email-to-board settings. Here you can copy the email address for forwarding tasks from Outlook and choose the list where a newly created card will show up.


Link Outlook emails to card comments

If you already have some cards in Trello but want to automatically attach Outlook emails to their comments to keep communication task related, card unique email will be a helpful thing. Click Share inside a required Trello card, copy Email for this card and use it when sending the Outlook email.


Happy planning,
Your Planyway team ❤️
