Set up a Trello Integration

Connect your Trello account

To get started, go to the Marker.io dashboard and add a destination.

A destination helps link your website to your Trello project.

Connect your Trello account.

Add a destination

Select the Trello Board where you wish to collect website feedback and provide the website domain (optional) where you would like to install the Marker.io widget. Also, complete the Resolved list field if you wish to set up Status Sync on this board. See below for more info on Status Sync.

Configure forms

We fetch your native Trello fields into your widget form. You can show/hide any fields and preset fields with dynamic values. 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.

Install widget

The last step is to install the website widget. We have many options for installing our widget and recommend our manual JavaScript install in most cases.

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

Collect feedback

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.

Review issues

In your Trello project, you see the feedback arrive with the screenshot and automatically captured technical data, including:

  • Page URL

  • Browser

  • Screen size

  • Operating system

Communicate with reporters

With our communication portal, you can quickly contact your reporters, and conversations will be synced with your Trello project.

Synchronize Status

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.


FAQs

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?

Admin permissions are required on the Trello project you wish to connect with.

I can't connect my Trello account to Marker.io

Any issues setting this up? Try the following:

  1. 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.

  2. Reset your password in Trello

    Try setting a new password in your Trello account and see if that helps to resolve the issue.

  3. Still not working?

    Please start a chat conversation with us in the lower right corner of your screen.

How do I add custom fields in Marker.io via the Trello Integration?

Custom fields are a great way to make your boards more specific and customized. You can add new field types, like projects or deadlines, with custom data relevant to your teams!

1: Add custom fields in Trello

Note: You need to be on a paid plan from Trello to enable custom fields.

  1. Choose the Trello project where you wish to enable your custom field(s)

  2. Select “Show Menu” on the top right

  3. Select “Custom fields.”

  4. Here you can select some suggested fields and add them directly to your current project. The suggested fields are:

    1. Priority

    2. Status

    3. Risk

    4. Effort

  5. As well as the above, you can create your own custom field by selecting “+ New Field.”

  6. Give your new Field a Title.

  7. Select a type for your new custom. The types include:

    1. Checkbox

    2. Date

    3. Dropdown

    4. Number

    5. Text

  8. You can also show this new Field on the front of each card. This is useful if you do not wish to open your Trello issue to see this custom field.

You now can add as many custom fields as you wish to your Trello issues.
