Trello: Can I import a CSV containing List / Card / Description columns?

I can find cut/paste and Zapier/GoogleSheets options to import cards in bulk to a list on a Trello board, but this only works one CSV column at a time.  Is there a solution that imports multiple cards containing a Title AND a Details from a CSV file?

 

For example, with a board in Trello called Fruit, and a csv list containing:

  • fruit, apples, My favorite apple is the MacIntosh
  • fruit, apples, I also like the Gravenstein
  • fruit, oranges, I always enjoy the Cara Cara orange


Currently, I can manually copy one column at a time, and get cards that say apples, apples, oranges, but the important details like MacIntosh, Gravenstein, and Cara Cara have to be added one by one to the cards.  

Is there a one step option?

Hi Methyl,

 

Zapier is the way to do that!

 

With Zapier, you can set up a Zap to watch a Google Sheet for new rows, and configure each row's columns to create a certain element on a new Trello card. So, your Zap could create a new card named whatever column 1 says, with the description from column 2, and populate a Custom Field with data from column 3. Then, copy the entire csv into that sheet to create the rows, and let Zapier pick it up.

Thank you for this.  Been looking everywhere for the answer. I wish they just had an import button and a template in Excel we could use.
