I would like to use a simple kanban board to track what should I do. But obviously, the "Done" list will be larger and larger (I can archive, instead to move to Done list). Another problem, that I would like to see the completed tasks in a calendar, so I can see, that what did I do last Friday. Is that possible?
A Google Account with an IFTTT recipe can help you achieve this.
- If you don't use Gmail, you can sign up for a Google Account using your existing (non-Gmail) email address.
- Once you have a Google Account, you will have access to Google Calendar among other apps.
- Sign up for IFTTT if you don't have an account already.
- Navigate to the
Channelssection and link your Trello and Google Calendar to IFTTT.
Create a recipe to track cards added to your
Donelist in Trello on Google Calendar.
Every time you move a card to
Done, IFTTT will create the card as an event on your Google Calendar.
- The IFTTT recipe uses Gooogle Calendar's 'Quick Add' feature. So, all the information shows up in the title of the calendar event. You'll want to factor that in if you go with this approach.
If this setup works for you, consider setting up another IFTTT recipe that adds a new row to a Google Sheet you specify.
To have an overview of accomplished cards in Trello:
- When done, move a card to a list named like Done on day/week/month X
- At the end of day/week/month X move the list to another board named "Report on things done in 2015" or anything like that.
- On that board switch to the calendar view (free power-up) and see all the cards done by date in Trello.
- moving to another board helps to keep the active board clean and fast;
- you won't have a detailed view like checklists done, only cards;
- you won't see daily activity (liking moving cards, making comments, etc), which is quite a different aspect anyway; instead you get only cards 100% completed fair and square;
- you'll have either get things done in time at due dates :-) or adjust due dates to the date when they were really done right before moving to the report board.
