How do you export comments from trello?

The CSV file doesn't contain the comments of a board and the JSON doesn't appear to either.

Hi @Alvaro_Sassano ,

You can export your boards by visiting the board then click Show Menu -> More -> Print & Export




Visit the below link and install the plugin then you will able to export in different formats!

Hi @Paul ,

Welcome to the community!

Just visit the below link and install the power-up after that you will able to export from Trello!

Hi @Soumyadeep Mandal

How can comments be copied when I copy a board? Because I tried it and it can't. Thank you

Hi @Alvaro_Sassano

You can even copy entire boards! Open the board's menu, then click "More" and choose "Copy Board." When a board is copied, we'll copy cards and their descriptions. We don't copy comments or card activity, however. If you want a "full copy" of the board, the best bet is to copy each list individually and move it to your new board. You might also check to see if you want to change the board admins, or move the board to a new team, instead.

Hi @Soumyadeep Mandal Thank you!! Is there a way to backup everything (dashboard, lists, cards, comments, activity, etc.) in a more automatic and secure way? with a Power-up, direct from Trello, some script, whatever ... Thanks

Hi @Alvaro_Sassano 

Unfortunately, the Board Export Power-up does not export comments currently. It is however on our backlog and due for our next batch of work for this Power-Up.



Hello @Dan Ivory _Orah Apps_ , has there been any development on account of the backlog feature you are mentioning on your comment from a year ago? I am working in a consultancy company and we are currently switching ticketing tools for one of our projects.

Is there currently a way to export all tickets + their commenatry?

Hi @Ilina Stoykova 

Yes! We have just released this feature so you can now export comments and activity. They will appear on new tabs in your Excel file. 

Check out this video for a demo (start at 3mins if you want to skip to the comments part)
