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 ellipses (three dots - the apps menu) at the top of the space and select "Manage apps."

 

switch from trello to workast

  • This will open the apps dialogue for the space.  You'll find the apps that are not added to your current space under the "Add new apps" heading.  Find "Import tasks" then click "Add" to add the importer to the space.

  • Open the board you would like to import.
  • Go to Board Menu.  Select "More" and then select "Print and Export."
