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.

  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”!

  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!

 

Conclusion

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!

Thank you so much. Even I could follow the instructions – It felt great being empowered to do the job myself instead of having to hand the issue over to someone else.

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.
Thanks

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!

Best,
Marie

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
