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.

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!
