How to import tasks from Trello

To import your Trello board into Workast, you'll need to:

  • Add the task importer into the space where you'd like to import the tasks
  • Save your Trello board as a JSON file
  • Import the saved file into the space

Workast will import the list names, task names, task descriptions and due dates from Trello.  Assignees and the various attachment types will not be imported at this time.  

How to add the task importer to a space

  • Open the space in the Workast web app where you'd like to import tasks.  (You will need to add the task importer to each space individually.)
  • Click on the apps icon (grid) in the upper right-hand corner of your space.
  • Select "Manage apps."
  • The app page for the space will open.  Select "Add" next to "Import Tasks."
  • Click X on to top right hand corner of the page to return to the space.  

Saving your Trello board

Your Trello board needs to be saved as a JSON file so it can be imported into Workast.  To do so:

  • Open the board you would like to import.
  • Go to Board Menu.  Select "More" and then select "Print and Export."
  • Click on Export as JSON.
  • Save the JSON file.

Importing the saved Trello file into your space

  • Click on the apps icon (grid) in the upper right-hand corner of your space.
  • Click on "Import Tasks. (If you haven't added the task importer to your space yet, scroll up to the first step.)
  • Click on "From Trello."
  • Click "Browse" and select your saved Trello file.  
  • Click "Upload."
  • Refresh your space as directed. Your imported lists and tasks will be added to your space.
