Last week, multiple users in our organization began experiencing an issue when trying to create Trello Cards from Outlook using the Trello Add-in.
When a user attempts to create a Trello Card from Outlook using the Outlook Trello Add-in, and selects "Include email attachments" - the user gets the error message: "Sorry, your card could not be added to Trello, Try again!!"
If the user does not select to include the attachment, the card is created. Users can also create cards from Outlook email messages which do not have attachments.
The problem seems to be centered around creating cards to include the email attachment(s). The type of attachment does not matter. It can be a PDF or a Word document. It will not work when trying to create a card from an email for any kind of attachment.
Anyone else experiencing this problem? I reported it to Trello but they referred me to Microsoft (email@example.com). I reported this and other issues to this email address but I don't get a response.
Yes, this is what I received:
Retirement of Trello & Yelp add-ins for Outlook

The following Outlook add-ins are being retired:
Note: If your users do not utilize either of these add-ins, you can safely disregard this message.
When this will happen:
December 15, 2022
How this will affect your organization:
If users are utilizing the Trello or Yelp add-ins, they will no longer be available in the store or function, after this change. For users of the Trello add-in, this will not impact data in Trello only the integration with Outlook.
What you can do to prepare:
Communicate this change with users as appropriate.
This is so disappointing! This integration has been extremally helpful in improving my work and operating less out of my email inbox - referring to Cal Newport's book "A World Without Email". This is probably why Microsoft is retiring it, they feel threatened!
If you do a Google search regarding the best Outlook Add-ins, the Trello Add-in is always in the list! Numerous YouTube videos recommend it. Microsoft is shooting themselves in the foot with this decision.
I've always been a strong advocate of Microsoft products - I can't tell you how much this decision makes me sick.
