Tame Your Inbox With The New Trello Add-on For Gmail

Trello Add-On for Gmail Tutorial

Ever since 1972, our inboxes have been expanding. Even today, email is still one of the most popular forms of communication: it’s often the first thing we check in the morning and the last thing we check before bed. Few (if any) of us, however, have become true email maestros, orchestrating our way to inbox zero.

How to use the Trello Add-On for Gmail

With the new Trello Add-on for Gmail, that’s all about to change. With the Trello Add-on for Gmail installed, click on the Trello icon next to any email to create a corresponding card in Trello.

  • Crank Up Your Productivity: Turn emails into to-do’s in Trello in a single click, and finally get down to inbox zero by never losing track of who you need to follow-up with and what needs to get done.
  • Never Miss A Beat: Subject lines become card titles and email bodies are added as card descriptions automatically, meaning you won’t miss a thing.
  • One And Done: Simply install the Trello Add-on once and it will be available in Gmail across all of your devices, no matter where you are.
