Do you manage projects in Trello? Trello is a great tool for small projects managed by small teams who need transparency of the Kanban board. Trello enables also the tracking of additional information. Anyway, once you think about Scrum, Trello becomes less useful as it lacks important parts that should be in the Scrum project. To find more, read Why is ScrumDesk better than Trello article.
If you have a lot of projects, or cards evidenced in Trello, you can import them directly into ScrumDesk very easily.
Create a new project
- Before the import, create a new project where all Trello cards will be imported.
- Invite your colleagues who should be able to access it.
- Now you can import cards from Trello.
ScrumDesk imports multiple entities from the Trello project:
- cards (even archived) as backlog items,
- tasks and their status (checked = done) from checklists as subtasks in ScrumDesk,
- labels as tags,
- colors of tags are assigned to ScrumDesk backlog item cards.
As Trello accounts are different from ScrumDesk, they need to be mapped before the import. Once the import has been started, it runs in the background and when completed, the user will receive a confirmation email.
