@Judith Goode the calendar power up gives you an iCal feed that you can subscribe to from a calendar application (including Google).

Google allows you to colour code events, but this can't be communicated through the iCal feed.

However, you could use the Trello API and the Google API to create a synch that would create or update an event in a Google Calendar any time a due date was added or edited in a given board, and then update the event colour in Calendar to the same colour as an added label.

It would take a bit of digging in the Calendar API to see the exact code for how to do it, but it's certainly doable, here are the Trellinator commands that would achieve it, with the Calendar API functionality abstracted out for brevity:

You can set Trellinator up yourself or hire a contractor on Upwork to do this for you:

Alternatively this is something I can help you with, you can find a link to contact me in in my profile.
