Key Results from Trello


The Trello data connector for WorkBoard enables users to select boards they have access to, along with optional filters for the assignee, board lists, and date ranges. The completion progress of the Key Result is measured by completed cards, progress is updated in WorkBoard on the specified update cadence.


  • The IT admin for your organization may need to approve the connector for the first time if the App is configured to require approval.
