Are you looking for a way to integrate your Trello boards into Notion? If so, you'll want to check out this quick guide. This tutorial will give you the ability to see your Trello boards directly in Notion. It will also allow you to take advantage of all the features and benefits that both apps have to offer, in one place.
Trello is a Kanban-style project management tool that is a subsidiary of Atlassian. It is designed to help teams stay on top of tasks by creating boards for different projects. Each board has cards with specific notes or steps needed to complete a task. Team members can assign each other tasks from the board, comment on each card, and move them around between columns on the board as they progress.
Notion is a collaboration platform intended to help teams organize their ideas and data into one unified workspace. Notion is great for teams– for creating pages and sub-pages, and building dashboards and databases.
The best part about Notion is that it connects with hundreds of other apps such as Slack, Airtable, and Google Drive. This means that you can have all relevant information in one place without leaving the app.
Did you know that integrating Trello and Notion can help you create a powerful dashboard and increase your (and your team’s) productivity? This is because it unifies tasks, data, and information into one place. By combining the two platforms, teams can keep track of projects and tasks while still having access to all relevant data, in one single platform.
Below is a step-by-step guide with two methods to show you how to embed Trello boards and tasks in Notion.
Method 1: Using Notion’s built-in Trello integration
Step 1: Enable the share settings for your Trello board
First, open up your Trello account, and head to the board that you’d like to embed inside Notion.
Click on the top right button above your board that reads ‘Share’’. Make sure you toggle the option to “anyone with the link can view the board”.
Next, make sure that you’ve selected Notion’s built-in app integration for Trello. To do that, click on the Import button on the left-hand side of your Notion document. Then, click on Trello on the popup window.
Step 2: Embed the Trello board or task inside Notion
Head to your Notion document and type “/Trello” where you want to insert the board.
Once you've chosen to use the Trello import, Notion will prompt you for access credentials, to link the two apps. You will be requested to grant authorization in a designated pop-up window.
Once connected, select the board that you’d like to embed inside a new Notion document.
Please note - for some strange reason, Notion seems to have an issue embedding the Trello boards inside an existing Notion page. Instead, it creates a new Notion document by default once you authorize a Trello import.
One workaround suggested on Notion’s Reddit page is that you can embed individual Trello cards and not entire boards in your existing doc. Here’s how you do it - head to an individual card inside Trello and copy the card’s link. Once you paste the link in your Notion doc, the task and its updates will show up as an embed.
Need to customize and tailor what data to share from your Trello board without setting up integrations? Method 2 is the perfect solution for you, check it out below.
Method 2: Use Plus to embed Trello boards in Notion
Get the most out of Notion and Trello with Plus! Our Chrome extension transforms data from any app into a live Snapshot, that's updated in real-time. Here’s what you need to get started.
Before we begin, make sure to set up your Plus account & install the extension.
To use Plus, install the Chrome extension by clicking here. After installation, head over to your Trello board and click on the Plus icon in the top-right corner of your browser.
Step 1: Take a Snapshot with Plus
In this example, I’d like to capture and share a specific view from my Trello board. Let’s say, I want to share only the cards under the 'to-do' header, instead of my entire Trello board.
First, you need to click on the Plus extension on your browser, and instantly capture any area of your screen with just a few clicks.
Click the Plus extension and press the “Take Snapshot” button.
It's extremely simple to take Snapshots—draw a box around the area you’d like to capture. In this case, I’ll select only one header of cards from my Trello board and take a Snapshot of their details.
When the Snapshot is successful, an onscreen window will let you know it worked. Click on the button that says copy the link to the clipboard. It’s just like taking screenshots from your computer, except these are live and updated in real-time.

Your Snapshot will now appear as a live view within Notion—feel free to adjust it to fit your layout needs.
