Scanned document directed into Trello via Google Drive.


I'm new to Trello, and I'm loving it. 

I'm looking for the best way to deal with our incoming scanned mail/documents. At the moment we have set the scanner to save the scanned document directly in a google folder.

What I would like to do is automate the process, so that when the document is scanned in, it automatically creates a Trello card, as a few of us work remotely, everyone will be able to see the scanned item, and we can comment on the response.

E.G        1. To be filed

             2. To actioned

             3. Trashed etc.


I hope I'm making sense, I am sure there is an easy way of doing this, I'd like to find the best way to set this up.


Thank You :-)

Hi Tony,

While there's not a way to automate this within Trello, you can create a Zap on Zapier to integrate Google Drive with your Trello account.  

Thank you Matthew..., I'll take a look. :-)
