Before you get started

Before you initiate your Trello import, check out these key concepts to understand how your data will transfer over to Coda.

A Trello Board consists of:

  • Cards that are organized into Lists

  • Each card can be assigned to one or more Assignees (people you are collaborating with)

  • Cards can be tagged with Labels

  • Cards can also have Checklist items.

When importing your Cards into Coda, we'll create a new page for you based on the name of the board you're importing from. The data for each board will be stored in a single table with a row for each card. This table has columns for things like title, description, and assignees.

When you import you can optionally include checklist items. If you do, we'll create a second table for the items linked with a relation column to the owning card.

Initiate your Trello import

To import from Trello, type /import into the canvas, and select the Trello option.

Click Next and you'll be prompted for permission to allow us to access your Trello data. This may look a bit daunting, but good news: you're allowing us to read your data for only an hour. Once you click Allow you can then pick the board you want to import and optionally include the checklist items.

Voila! You're done.
