Microsoft Planner to Trello


I have been using Microsft Planner for managing projects.  I have recently hit a card limit, and want to come back to Trello.  There are so many limitations in Planner that we would never experience in Trello.

To do this, I need to get my cards fro Planner into Trello.

Is there an export tool, add-on or some tech sorcery to make this happen?

I am in a bind, and I need these cards all in Trello, so I can start adding new cards. I have a task list now living in excel of things that need to be added. 

Any help would be great, 

Thank you!

Hi Robyn,

Currently, there isn't a tool available specifically for transfering data from Microsoft Planner to Trello.

If you're comfortable with code or have access to a developer, you can use the Trello API to import the tasks that are currently in your spreadsheet into Trello. Our API is fully documented at

Another option would be to copy all of the task names from your spreadsheet and then paste them as the title for a single new card. That will give you the option to create multiple cards at once, one for each line:


One thing to keep in mind is that this will only import information from a single column, so you'd want to go back and add the details to each card later.

Thank you, I will see what I can do over here to convert my planner cards.
