Generate email link of card in Description


My team members in the field need to upload attachments to cards from their phone. The problem is, the way they get the file is from another 3rd party app, and right now they share it using email.  They need to start using Trello because organization is becoming insane as we scale up.

The problem is, there is no way to add the attachement to the trello card without confusing them. They would have to download the file from whatever 3rd party app (instead of pressing a paper-airplane-share button) and then they would have to close out that app, open Trello and find the card and hit attach.

The 3rd party app allows us to share to Trello directly but it creates a whole new card, which bypasses templates I made and such.

I know we can email stuff into cards with the email link generated in Trello and it looks like

My question is, can we just have this email autogenerated and placed in the description when the card is created? That way, they can just copy it easily before they share a file via email in their 3rd party app?

@Andre BERTOMEU you can use my BenkoDesk product to connect a shared email to your Trello board:

When you send emails into your shared email, the attachments will be automatically added to Google Drive and attached to the card as a download link, with an "All Attachments" link that opens up a uniqe folder containing the attachments for that card.

You can then use automation to do other things with the attachments, such as put them onto different cards using templates, copy them, save them in special spots in Drive and so on.

Some of that automation can be done with Butler, but where the automation requirements are too complicated, you can also use the raw API or the Trellinator framework that I created to do some of the more complicated automations required for my clients:
