Collect website feedback as new issues directly in your Trello projects. With our 2-way synchronization, your issue status, fields, and comments are always in sync.
Set up a Trello Integration
Add a project
To get started, go to the Marker.io dashboard and Create a project.
Complete the project form by entering a :
The website where you wish to collect feedback
Select your integration
Select the space within your integration where you wish to receive your feedback
If this is your first time connecting, you need to authorize marker.io to use your Trello account.
We fetch your native Trello fields into your widget form. You can show/hide any fields and preset fields. For example, set the default label as "Dev Team" to ensure your development team is aware of all new feedback.
Note: Marker.io members report through the Member form, while Guests and Public Reporters report via the Guest form. More on that in our User Roles Guide.
Alternatively, install the widget via WordPress plugin, NPM package, or send a request to your developer in one click.
Visit your website, refresh and check that the widget appears.
How it works
Reporters can submit their feedback directly to your Trello project without leaving their website. Their feedback will automatically include detail-rich technical data.
Let’s say the Contact Us button is broken on the About Us page. The reporter clicks on the widget and is presented with a screenshot and a feedback form to complete.
The screenshot can be annotated, and the feedback form can be as simple or as complex as you wish. We recommend keeping the feedback form as simple as possible for your non-technical reporters.
In your Trello project, you see the feedback arrive with the screenshot and automatically captured technical data, including:
Communicate with reporters
The "Contact via Marker.io" link opens the Feedback Page, where you can communicate with your reporters. All conversations will be synced with Trello.
Once you update an issue status to “done” within Trello, this will update the Marker.io status to resolved and notify the reporter via email that the issue is complete.
Is Marker.io secure?
We take your data and the security of our systems very seriously, using the most advanced security to connect with your account. See the latest version of our security policy at: https://marker.io/security.
What permissions are required to integrate with Trello?
Marker.io requires Admin permissions on the Trello project you wish to connect with to ensure seamless synchronization between the two platforms. By having access to all boards, Marker.io can:
Real-time Status Synchronization: This ensures that when a status changes in Trello, it's immediately reflected in Marker.io. This real-time sync prevents any discrepancies or confusion for your team.
Board and Card Mapping: To accurately map feedback or issues reported through Marker.io to the correct Trello board or card, the system needs to be aware of all available boards and cards.
Ensuring Comprehensive Integration: To provide a comprehensive integration experience, Marker.io must be aware of all boards, including any new ones that might be created. This way, you won't need to adjust permissions whenever adding a new board.
However, we would like to assure you that while Marker.io requires admin access, it does not store, share, or use your Trello data for any purpose other than to facilitate the integration and synchronization. Our primary goal is to enhance your workflow.
I can't connect my Trello account to Marker.io
Any issues setting this up? Try the following:
Log in to your Trello account
Log in to Trello in a second tab. This ensures that your password and username do not require additional security verification. When logged in to Trello, return to Marker.io and try connecting your Trello account.
Reset your password in Trello
Try setting a new password in your Trello account and see if that helps to resolve the issue.
Still not working?
Please start a chat conversation with us in the lower right corner of your screen.
