As I have already shown you what Trello is and how to create your editorial calendar, today I will explain how to integrate Trello with Google Calendar and iCal! This will allow you to see the due dates of your tasks along with the other tasks of your daily life.

Trello Calendar iCal

Basic steps for Trello

  1. Click on “Menu”, then “Power-Ups”
  2. Click on “Calendar”. This power-up has to be activated.
  3. Go back to your Trello Board
  4. Click on “Calendar”, then on the gear to open the settings of the Calendar
  5. Click on “Enable Sync”
  6. Copy the URL which is framed in the URL below:
    Sync your cards due date from Trello with your personal calendar
  7. Then follow the steps according to the type calendar where you want your Trello board.

Steps to add Trello to Google Calendar

  1. Go on Google Agenda
  2. As shown in the image below, select the small arrow to the left of your calendar. Click “Add By URL”
    Add Trello to Google Agenda
  3. Paste the URL Which we previously copied from Trello, then click on “Add Calendar”
    Add Trello to Google Calendar
  4. If you do not like the color assigned automatically to your new calendar, you can go to modify it as well as other parameters by positioning your cursor on the calendar then click on the small arrow that will appear to its right.

Steps to add Trello to iCal

  1. Open iCal
  2. Click on “File”, then « New calendar subscription… »
  3. Paste the URL of your Trello Calendar, then click on “Subscribe”
    Trello Calendar
  4. The window below will be displayed after. Enter the name you want for the calendar, change its color, and then for configuration, choose whether you want the new calendar to be stored directly on your Mac or iCloud. For automatic updating, I selected “Every day”!
    Trello Calendar
  5. Click on OK, and you’re done!


2 way sync of Trello and Google Calendar or iCal ?

As I am writing this blog post, it’s not possible to have a 2 way-sync between Trello and a digital calendar. I haven’t tried it myself, but I heard Planyway is a great alternative for this!



I hope you liked this article and that it will help you be a bit more organized. Don’t forget that I also posted other articles about Trello you might be interested in reading: one to explain to you how Trello works, and another one to show you how to create your editorial calendar!

Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring
on other blogs? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you
discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would appreciate your work.
If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

I tried to send you an email but it came back saying the email does not exist.
You can send me an email if you want!

Hi Marie,
Very useful tip. I love Trello. So good for planning a long travel.
If you can help me : I don’t find the menu, neither show menu on my iOS devices. Only on my MacBook. I ask help trello, I still have no answer.

Marie May 18, 2019 - 11:48 pm

Hello Gerard!

Thanks to your comment, I updated the step-by-step guide on my blog post to reflect Trello’s changes to their website!

However, you can only enable the synchronization to your personal calendar with the full version of Trello which is accessible on your Macbook only, not on iOS devices!

Thanks for this brilliant post.
I love using Trello. And I have always struggled with not being able to see my Trello tasks in my main calendar (Google). I tried to use IFTTT, but it’s usually hit or miss.
Now that I know how to achieve this, it will certainly make me more productive and efficient in my everyday life.
Many thanks for this

Marie October 1, 2019 - 3:31 pm

Glad to know I was able to help you be more productive! 🙂

Daphne November 20, 2019 - 8:57 am


I want my iCalendar to be as it is but in Trello. In my iCalendar I have many appointments that i want to be seen from my colleagues in Trello. The thing is that i do all the steps that you are explaining above but it doesnt work. I mean I do not see what already exist from my iCalendar in Trello.
Can you please help me? I dont know what to do

Marie December 29, 2019 - 10:00 pm

Hello Daphne,
The steps explained in this blog post are for sync Trello tasks in iCalendar, not iCalendar events to Trello.
I don’t think it’s possible to create Trello cards from iCalendar events.

Andy January 31, 2020 - 1:18 pm

iCal-Trello tip was extremely useful. First site to explain it clearly. T hank you.

Marie March 28, 2020 - 5:00 pm

Yay! Happy I was able to help!
