Step 2

Next, click on the IMPORTS tab, then click on Trello.


Step 3

Name the import (this is important if you will be importing from several Trello accounts/teams and want to be able to tell them apart), then click Next when ready.


Step 4

You’ll then see the Trello authentication page. If you’re not logged in, you’ll be asked to sign in to your Trello account. Click Allow.

Step 5

Now you will be asked to select which team in Trello will be used for the import. Only 1 team can be selected for any import job, so if you have multiple teams you want to import you will need to do this process again for each team. Click Next when you have selected.

Step 6

Pick which boards you’d like to import. Place a checkmark on them, then, click Start importing.

Step 7

On the next page you will see a list of members from your Trello team. You can manage them on this page using the Actions drop down menu.

  1. Choose Invite to invite Trello users to Hubstaff Tasks.
  2. Choose Merge to merge existing Trello and Hubstaff users as one user in Hubstaff Tasks. Note that not merging existing Trello users into existing Hubstaff Tasks users will cause duplicate users.
  3. Hit Finish.
