Hello, I'm a bit stuck with the Trello where I'm emailing to a card and I want a notification that there is a new card.  I've turned notifications on, pressed the 'eye' so its being watched and added an action to add my name to the card, but there is nowhere that I get a little mesage to say there is a new card...........


Is there an easier way to give the email address to a collaborator who I want him to email his task lists to me.  I believe the email to board is just for me................any help with this?

Hi @Terressa Elliott👋

Did you manage to set up your notifications?

I thought I would add, regarding your email query, if you are wanting to email in and out of Trello using your own/existing emails address, you might find our Power-Up useful: Email for Trello

Here is a quick summary article of how it works: How to send and receive emails in Trello

Hope that helps!

Feel free to reach out you have any questions

Hey Terressa,

I'm not 100% certain that I know what you want, but I think you are asking for notifications every time a card is added to the board?

I think it sounds like you are 'watching' the *card* (pressing the eye), but you can also Watch at higher levels too.

  • You can watch a list by clicking the 3 dots at the top right of a list and selecting Watch on the list actions menu
  • You can watch a board by clicking the 3 dots at the top right of the board and clicking the eye on that menu

BUT according to this you WON'T receive a notification for cards that you create.

It also depends how you want to receive the notification - is it just via notifications on the board? or do you want to be emailed every time? or emailed a summary?

Maybe it would work better for you to setup  email reports using Butler? There's more about that here;

Hopefully that helps,
