Google Docs to Trello setup steps

1. Select Google Docs

Click the Google Docs icon to select it as your source of tasks and events.


2. Connect Google Docs

Note: Google Docs setup requires a two-step process to 1) connect your account, and 2) authorize access to specific Docs.  

Grant permission to connect TaskClone to your Google Drive/Docs account.  You will authorize access to specific Docs in a later step.  Be sure you're authorizing the specific Google Docs account you want to use. When you are returned to TaskClone, click "Next" to continue.


3. Select Trello as your destination

Click the Trello icon if visible or select Trello using search field. Click “Next” button to save and continue.


4. Find your Trello Email Address

Login to Trello in different browser tab, locate and copy the unique email address where Trello will receive and process the tasks we send. Learn more.


5. Enter Destination Email for Trello 

Paste unique email from Trello in the Destination Email field that appears in the TaskClone setup wizard.  


6. Finish 

Click Finish button.  You're now connected, but there is one more step.


7. Authorize Individual Google Documents

Because Google Docs requires granting access to each specific Doc you want us to process, we've built a simple Google Docs Add-on to make that easy from within Google Docs.  Install our Google Docs Add-on just once (see instructions) and then use the add-on whenever you want to grant access to one or more Google Docs (see instructions).
