The HourStack Trello integration allows your team to schedule and track time from the cards they’re already working on in Trello — which means no duplicating tasks, interrupted workflows, or jumping back and forth between applications.

You can connect or disconnect integrations anytime through your account settings. All integrations are scoped to you personally, meaning that nobody else on your team can access your integration connection or data. You'll have access to your Trello integration across all of your workspaces.

Connecting the Integration

To connect your Trello account, navigate to your account settings and find Trello under the available integrations and click "Connect". This will take you to Trello to login to the account you'd like to connect and to authorize the HourStack app to access your Trello account data. Once you've authorized the HourStack app, the integration will be connected and you can start using it immediately from your calendar.

Integration Settings

On your account settings page, click the "Manage" link next to your connected Trello integration to manage the settings.

Integration Configuration

Filtering and sorting selections you make within the integration will automatically be saved to your integration configuration so that each time you open the integration, it will be in the state you last left it, even across browsers or devices.

Trello Boards, Lists, and Cards

The Trello integration features three primary views; Trello boards, Trello lists, and Trello cards. To filter the list of cards you'll first select a Trello board and then a list. Boards, lists, and cards are all searchable and cards can also be sorted by name, order, date created, or date updated. The default order will be the same order that they are presented in Trello.

Creating Entries in HourStack

You can use Trello cards to create entries in HourStack by dragging and dropping them onto the calendar, or by clicking on the Trello card and selecting "Schedule card" from the menu. Notes from the Trello card are automatically copied over to the HourStack entry. Creating entries from integrations requires the same permissions as creating entries from scratch.

<aside> 💡 To create entries for other team members, the other_entries permission is required along with other_teams if the member you are wanting to create entries for belongs to a different team than you.

Project and Label Assignment

Trello doesn't support projects, but you'll have the option to select a project from HourStack before scheduling the card.
