Trello Power-Ups Directory tutorial

Believe it or not, there’s a snazzy way  to discover, enable, and manage Power-Ups on your Trello boards! The Trello Power-Ups Directory has a host of shiny, bright features such as search, categories, editorial content, featured Power-Ups (in multiple languages!), and more. 

It’s easy as productivity pie to find the perfect Power-Ups for your workflow, and add your favorite features and integrations to your Trello boards. That means less digging for information and more productivity. 

A Brief History Of Power-Ups

Since the launch of Trello’s Power-Ups platform in 2016, which allowed for developers to build their own Power-Ups, the excitement and growth in the platform has far outpaced the capabilities of our original directory. 

Today, there are over 200+ public Power-Ups for popular apps like Slack, Google Drive, and Bitbucket, in addition to thousands of private custom Power-Ups built to serve unique business needs.

If you are unfamiliar with Power-Ups, they are additional features and integrations that can be enabled on boards to provide a custom-fit Trello experience for your specific use case. 

For instance, Power-Ups can be used to add a calendar to your board or custom fields to cards, create automations with Butler and Zapier, or pull in up-to-date information from apps like Evernote, InVision, and Dropbox. You can enable unlimited Power-Ups on any Trello board for free!
