I use Trello to upload blog articles so my team can see them, and select who will edit which post. Instead of uploading Word files from various computers, is there a way we could use Google Docs and Trello combined? Since I like the collaborative aspect of Google Docs for editing and I like Trello to organize who on the team is editing what and what phase in editing is a certain blog post. Any help on how I can incorporate the two?

    How about just the link to the respective doc?

There are two great Google Docs with scripts for working with Trello.

One for importing into Trello from Google Docs: http://www.littlebluemonkey.com/blog/online-scrum-tools-part-3-upload-existing-product-backlog-into-trello/

And another for backing up all your Trello boards and cards to Google Docs: http://www.littlebluemonkey.com/blog/online-scrum-tools-part-4-trello-backup/

So you can use these in tandem to manage your Trello boards from Google Docs.


We've started attaching Google Docs to every card for developers to write notes, and testers to write test scripts - It was a pain to do manually so I created a script that will add docs to all existing cards, and automatically add them to new cards as they are created:


There is no such feature built in to Trello, but adding a link to the Google Doc in the description or in a comment should work well.
