Trello labels from Google Sheets via ?

I'm having a hard time getting labels to transfer through from Google Sheets to my Trello cards. either doesn't add anything or gives an error, depending on the format I use.

I have tried using the label name (including making sure it's one word), the color, a number 1-9, and also the unique color ID.  Any suggestions on making this work?  

Zapier will bring in the label name but will add it as a new label with no color.  I would prefer to use though, but just including this as a note.

Thank you,

Hi Heather,

Crystal from Trello Support here. 

Unfortunately as is a 3rd party provider we don't have much information on their specifications. Perhaps Automate can run custom code? If so, you could use the API to add the label:


Let us know if there is anything else we can help with!



I found the solution : you "inspect" the page in Chrome and copy the id-label of your label into the column labels of your Google Sheets.

In your bot you put "use custom value" and you use the column "labels" of your sheet. It works perfect.
