Hi, I would like to know what happened with Trello Official Chrome extension
It has been down for several days
Just adding to the votes here to find the bandwidth on this - to me this is a really core feature of Trello (easy saving links from Chrome), and this extension has been the smoothest, least-click way to do it.
Re-enabling the extension helps - for now - but still makes for a weird user experience, and I am now worried that, if nothing done, Chrome will fully block it.
Hi, I would also like to comment on this - It's annoying that such a useful feature was removed without any communication?! And that it hasn't received a higher priority in the backlog?! From the comments, the shortcut b to search for a board, for me, is the best alternative. Not ideal though as it means an extra step multiple times a day.
Hi Everyone! A quick note from the Trello team. As you all know the official Trello Chrome Extension has been delisted by Google. We understand that might have impacted some of our users’ productivity. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience!
For now, we want to highlight these alternative options:
We are working behind the scenes to provide you with a better update on this, and we will be checking back soon.
Thanks for your patience!
actually using the chrome location bar and "t NAME_OF_BOARD" was/is the main feature of the extension I use.
As the extension was released by you I simply activated it again and ignore the policy warning. But the "b NAME_OF_BOARD" is also a great help.
Hope you can officially list the extension again soon
Firstly, thanks - I didn't know that existed, so that at least saves me navigating through the menus to find the right board.
Secondly, this is close to what I want, but I'm not generally already in Trello when I want to open a new board - I don't 100% live in Trello ;) The address bar "t" shortcut saved me first having to find a random trello page to open and then searching for the board...
So my life just got a bit better thanks to you, but it could still get even better...
So, maybe someone should tell the content team that this extension is no longer available as it was referenced in a blog post last month, pushed out in an email this week...
Funnily enough, I’m the one who wrote that post 😂 at the time I thought I was just having some issue on my computer accessing it because I found that same link referenced multiple times in other blog posts and I assumed the editing team would pull that out if it wasn’t true. I’ll make a note with them that they might wanna comb through all the posts that mention it since it can’t be downloaded anymore.
Oh I don’t work at Trello - just a massive fan and write some blog posts for them. But also I think this whole thread is all of us trying to champion for the feature, and even if every Trello product manager agrees this is a key feature, that doesn’t mean atlassian is for sure going to give the thumbs up to dedicate resources to it, or that it’s the only feature they’re getting feedback to prioritize. So I’ll keep chiming in here and advocating for it, but as one who now works in product development, I’ve started to get to see the other side of it and I know it’s not always as simple as “a lot of people say they like this”.
I totally agree, but Atlassian has famously removed features without any word about them (see Jira redesign and all of the features they dropped there) and it leaves a bad taste in all of our mouths. This isn't championing for a new feature, this is us saying WTF, this was here, something I used, and now its gone (without so much as a word from Atlassian) and that's shitty.
Update! I just noticed that chrome automatically disabled it because apparently it violates terms? But I can re-enable it by toggling it back on. (To do this, go to your chrome extension management and then search Trello and you'll see it. Click the gray toggle to turn it back on.) Sharing in case anyone else comes across this.
Yes, the extension still works just fine if you re-enable it.
I actually don't use the Quick-add at all, but use it to quickly search for a board by typing T <space> (trello board name) in the browser's addressbar/omnibox, which is a super fast way to get to the right Trello board. If there's an alternative for that, I'd be willing to switch.
@Sam Gilbert and @takesia.reid unfortunately i don't know how to restore it, but if you want to add a Chrome Extension called PixieBrix (it's free), you can create a similar functionality. Here's an article on how I did it: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Trello-articles/Trello-Customization-with-PixieBrix/ba-p/1857595
@Brittany Joiner, Unfortunately, I need the official version for Enterprise use. I was developing a use case for my corporate team. This totally shot my workflow and project to pieces. There's been a need all year. Users are wanting this back. I cannot use a third party sadly. Is there any timeline by chance? Thanks for your help.
Congratulations to @Laura Holton , our latest winner of Taco Tuesday! And thanks to @Kristjan Geir Mathiesen - Origo for sharing the picture of Taco having fun with his new friend...
