I'm using Zapier to forward Gmail emails to make new Trello cards as they come in under a specific label. The emails are HTML emails and when Zapier creates a new card in Trello I see all the HTML tags.

Is there a way to enable HTML in Trello cards?

  • Where are you seeing the HTML tags? – Zoot Jan 7 '13 at 16:33
  • Thanks for the response. Here is what it looks like when the new card is created. - <html> <head> <title>New</title> </head> <body> <p><strong>testing</strong></p> <p>test1<br /> test2<br /> test43<br /> test4</p> <br> <p><strong>Instructions</strong></p> – Joe Z Jan 7 '13 at 17:02
  • This is in the card title, or the card description? – Zoot Jan 7 '13 at 17:04
  • It's in the card description sorry. – Joe Z Jan 7 '13 at 17:30

Trello uses Markdown in its description, not HTML.

However, there are online tools that convert from one to the other, such as Pandoc. I don't think Zapier has any content conversion utilities, so you might have to do this manually after the card is created.

  • Thank you so much. I was able to get his working. This may be useful to somebody else with a similar issue. I was able to use nl2br() function on my message data which put in the breaks where I needed them I ended up just using plain text and using a function I found on php.net/manual/en/function.nl2br.php which converts the breaks. Thanks again! – Joe Z Jan 7 '13 at 20:50
  • Hi, can you explain how you use this function? Does Zapier call the function before passing to trello? – electrique Apr 24 '17 at 15:10
