Four New Power-Ups Are Here To Boost Sales, Development & Design Workflows

Trello Power-Ups: Includer, Pipedrive, Marker, Burndown for Trello

Four new Power-Ups have just been released that are sure to excite anyone from Sales to Development to Design Teams everywhere. Pipedrive, Includer, Marker, and Burndown For Trello are exciting Power-Ups that help bring insights, information, and visuals directly to your team’s Trello boards. Plus, now they're incorporated directly into your team’s workflow.

Everything required to develop a product or fix a bug is all available in one centralized location, without the need to jump back and forth between apps.  Let’s take a look at the four new Power-Ups available today.

Pipedrive

Pipedrive Power-Up for Trello

When a member of a Sales Team closes a deal with a customer, they may mark that deal as “won,” but often the deal is far from over. Making a sale is just the first step in everything that comes next when fulfilling the contract. This could be as simple as delivering a product, all the way to developing an application, or building a rocketship. That’s where the Pipedrive Power-Up comes into play.

The Pipedrive Power-Up allows sales teams to seamlessly bring customer information from their sales pipeline right into their Trello boards. What’s even better is that the Pipedrive Power-Up can do this all automatically for you.  As soon as a deal is marked as “done” in Pipedrive, a new Trello card is created on the designated Trello board filled with contact details, service or product information, and business details.

Pipedrive Power-Up attach data to Trello card

Pipedrive data can also be attached to Trello cards from within Trello, making it simple to associate customers with their cards. This way there is no guessing what someone’s order or contact information is, and no need to hop back and forth between apps. We’ll consider that a win!

Includer

Includer Power-Up for Trello

How do you include stakeholders and clients in feedback and brainstorming sessions without adding them to your internal Trello boards? One word: Includer. Includer allows teams and stakeholders to asynchronously discuss features, development, and priorities, but on their own time.  This removes the need for time wasting meetings where it is often difficult to get everyone on the same video chat let alone the same room.

The Includer Power-Up allows your team to connect Trello cards on a board with an Includer session, which will pull the selected cards’ information into Includer so that customers, clients, or stakeholders can share their ideas and input without having to add them to the Trello board. It’s great for keeping that extra level of internal privacy on your board.

Includer sessions can also be attached to Trello cards so that product owners, designers, and developers can reference feedback from a client and make the changes necessary to ship the finished product as desired. Or if a new idea comes up during a brainstorming session in Includer, a card can be added to the team’s board with the details of that brainstorming session attached to the new card.

Marker

Ever see an image not fitting correctly on a site, a bug in the code, or a bit of copy that could be aligned better, but sharing that information is just too cumbersome? Taking a screenshot, finding a way to annotate it, and then sharing it with the design and dev teams is way too many steps! Luckily Marker is here to be your one stop shop for sharing visual feedback with your team without leaving Trello.

Marker lets you take a screenshot of an issue, annotate it, and add any relevant repro details. With the Marker Power-Up enabled this information can be added right to a Trello card so that devs, designers, and editors can see exactly what’s wrong and fix it during the next sprint.

Essential information such as the browser and operating system is added right into the description of the card for the bug, as well as the source URL from the screenshot, and the changes that need to be made.  Way less bug reporting steps for way more success.

Burndown For Trello

Burndown for Trello Power-Up

The Burndown For Trello Power-Up lets product managers and scrum masters visualize sprint progress and blockers in a dashboard view that’s accessible directly from the team’s Trello board. It is also possible to visualize other important agile charts like burnup, burndown by user, burndown by label, and more.

Development teams or anyone that incorporates an agile process into their workflow can set dates for sprints, and track cards from the backlog, to in-progress, to done. Even better, Burndown For Trello is compatible with the Scrum For Trello browser extension that adds story estimates to your cards.
