Create Trello tasks from Slack

Hi I would like to be able to create a task by right clicking on a Slack conversation. I have tried the slack integrations with trello but all i see is how to get slack notifications when my board changes. What I am looking for is the other way around. 


Message actions: I am able to create a task with asana, todoist, create a note in evernote, but cant figure out how to create a card in trello.

I know it's not the same as clicking actions, but if you've added the trello app, you can type "/trello add ______ " and it will create a card to whatever you call that. 


Another hack would be using Zapier. You can connect trello and slack to zapier, and set up a trigger for when a message is starred to create a card in Trello.  (See here.)

Are there any plans to add Slack message actions to the Trello app? It's the main flaw in my workflow at the moment that when I get a Slack message that I need to action or about a project, I can't add it to the necessary Trello board with ease. This is inefficient to the extent that we're considering moving from Trello to something else.
