Improving card creation from webpages while browsing


I've been experimenting using Trello for wishlists, and found the experience of creating cards while browsing cumbersome until I saw that ancient tool Trello had made specifically for adding cards. I hope to God Atlassian don't stop supporting this feature - that neat little javascript bookmark has become so useful to me. I would ideally hope that they could modernise, adding labels, extra attachments etc. but I suspect the more likely outcome is Atlassian would can the feature. I'd be interested if anyone knew of a "better" way to create trello cards quickly while browsing?

I did try the feature that lets you create link cards by copy-pasting but they have limited utility, you can't attach labels and none of the embedded information you would want gets preserved on converting to a regular ticket.

Ideally Atlassian would handle the conversion step better here so the workflow of manually adding extra information here wouldn't be excruciatingly slow and I wouldn't have to worry about relying on an ancient bolted-on feature that makes it at least a little quicker

Hi @Joe Whittles 

You could experiment with a few things...

  • Trello shortcuts can simplify/speed up the inputting. 
  • Adding Items quickly to a checklist and making an automation to convert them to cards...
  • The Trello mobile app for adding things, including offline capability.  I use this a lot to do brain dumps that I can clean up when I'm at my PC later down the line
  • Forms Power-ups for inputting data into Trello
  • can enable you to create browser mods that could turn things into Trello card.  Our very own @Brittany Joiner could help you...
  • Use integrations such as Zapier/Make to join Trello to just about anything...You can then create data in anything from Keep Notes, Jotform, Gmail....and it can be sent straight to Trello

Just some food for thought πŸ˜Š

Thank you, these are some great suggestions and will give pixiebrix a bit more of a proper try-out.

 @Brittany Joiner just modifying your excellent PixieBrix integration for my purposes, though it doesn't seem like they support adding to specific lists? There was a blog you had made earlier that implies you could though, so was hoping you'd know more about that?

Scratch that, found the answer! "New Card on Trello With Prompt" will always ask for the list, whereas it can be set as a variable in the ordinary "New Card on Trello" brick
