Best power ups?

Jeff Tillett Community Leader Apr 11, 2019

I attended a session on Trello power ups this year at Summit, and it got my wheels turning. Now, like all things, I am overwhelmed by the sheer possibility!

This is why I love the community, you all help make sense of things.

What are your MUST HAVE or favorite power ups for Trello?

Hi @Jeff Tillett  ‪I wrote a community article recently called "My Love of @trello Power-Ups"  Here is the link: ‬ ‪

Hope you find it helpful :)

@Jeff Tillett ironically, the only power ups I find useful are the ones provided by Trello, so they're basically features:

 - Custom fields

 - Calendar

 - Butler (formerly not provided by Trello but recently acquired :)

I couldn't agree more. I just spent a good amount of time searching a bunch. All but those wanted some sort of payment (understood) but seems way, way overkill for my needs. 

Would be nice however if trello allowed for (via Butler or some other method) a way to create a card link. But, the practice of having to open the card and then click on the link is not unbearable... just seems like the card link would be so easy and so appreciated by the tello faithful.

Next priority after that would be some form of Burn-down or Gantt similar to "Calendar" I see plenty of those but all for fee and as a 'normal' user, the fee is not justifiable.

@Joe Provenzano what do you mean creating a card link? You can also get access to the card link via Butler, for example this command would post a comment with the card link whenever it was created:

when a card is created post comment "{triggercardlink}"

But you can also just copy the URL of the browser when looking at a card (from the web app).

What's your use case for this?

I was referring to making the text on the card view work as a link. So instead of having to open the card and then click on the attached link (or some link embedded inside the card) you could do that without opening the card.

As an example. two ways they could do this is in the description field, allow the description to be a url link if the card creator wanted that. Another way would be for the paper clip - or add a new field with the link icon to be clicked. The result of that click would be to go to the URL specified in the card for that purpose.

As I said, this only saves 1-click. But it might be highly liked by the user base as it creates such a smooth transition between boards and/or cards, etc.

Like Joe Provenzano likes this

That's a good start. The people I share the board with would also need this extension (and use of Chrome) so it's not quite as ideal as if they just made it part of the UI, but good on Justin O'Niell for his extention. Thanks
