Trello To Go! Embed Trello Cards and Boards Wherever You Work

Embed Trello Cards, Embed Trello Boards

From the beginning, Trello has set out to bring perspective to people that are working together to organize and collaborate on all of their projects.

Power-Ups brought the apps and services you rely on right into your Trello workflow, and today we are breaking the board barrier by bringing embedded Trello cards and boards to your favorite apps like Bitbucket, Dropbox Paper, appear.in, Confluence Cloud, and more. Now, wherever you work, Trello is with you.

By embedding Trello cards and boards inside the apps you use to plan, work, and communicate, teams can stay connected and see who’s doing what (and what needs to get done) without switching apps. Less context switching means less distractions—and more productivity.

Embedded boards have the same great look and feel as boards in Trello, and include all of the flexibility and functionality you’ve come to love. Embedded cards look just like Trello cards, but have even more in store!

Not only do they display key at-a-glance information like the current board and list they are on, embedded cards also allow additional interaction like comments, voting, joining, and subscribing, right from the embed. Plus, you can embed board tiles as well, just like cards, to create visual links to Trello boards. Of course, anything embedded from Trello always displays in real time, no matter which app you are in.

Less context switching means more productivity. Take Trello to go with new embedded cards and boards. tiny_twitter_bird.pngTweet this
