How to Sync Trello with Google Calendar

Viewing all your tasks and events in one place is important for effective time management. With Trello, syncing your boards with Google Calendar is a crucial step in organizing your schedule and, hopefully, help you avoid missing deadlines or confusing important tasks and meetings. There are two main ways to sync Trello with Google Calendar.

Sync Trello with Google Calendar With the Calendar Power-Up

Calendar Power-Up adds a simple calendar view to your Trello board. It’s one-way integration, though, which means only the changes made in the Trello board are reflected in Google Calendar and not vice versa.

Another thing to keep in mind is that Google Calendar is assumed to update and sync once or twice a day. Therefore, you won’t see Trello updates instantly on your Google Calendar.

To set up the Calendar Power-up, launch Trello and follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to the Boards under your workspace.
  2. Select the board you want to sync with Google Calendar. Next, click on Power-Ups on the Trello Board, then on Add Power-Ups.

    Add Power-Ups
    Click on Power-Ups, and then click Add Power-Ups.

  3. In the search field, search for “Calendar” then Add the Calendar Power-Up.

    Add the Calendar Power-Up
    Search for Calendar and Add the Calendar Power-Up to your Trello.

  4. Click the Calendar Power-Up button on your Trello board. It will open a calendar- you can choose a weekly or monthly view.

    Click on Calendar Power-Up
    Click on the Calendar Power-Up on your Trello Board.

  5. Click on the Settings icon in the upper right corner of the calendar. It will provide you with an iCalendar Feed URL. Copy it.

    Go to settings and copy the iCalender Feed URL.

Your Trello board is now synced with Google Calendar.

In case you want to undo sync, there are two methods:

  2. Go to the Calendar Power-Up on your Trello board, click on the settings icon at the top, and select Disable sync.
