How to enable and use the Trello integration

Overview

Like other integrations, you need to be an admin in order to enable the Trello integration, but once enabled it can be used by any teammate.

The Trello integration allows you to link new or existing Trello cards to conversations in Front. They are a few key benefits:

  • Once a Trello card is linked to a Front conversation, you can easily access it directly from Front
  • When an Trello card is attached to a Front conversation, a link back to all related conversation in Front will be added as an attachment to the Trello card

 


Instructions

Admin steps

Step 1

Click the gear icon on the top right of Front and into the Company settings tab. Go to the Integrations settings, and select Trello from the list of integrations.

Step 2

Turn the toggle on to enable Trello.

Step 3

Click Save to finish enabling the Trello integration.

End-user steps

Step 1

Open a conversation in your inbox, and click the tag icon at the top right. Select Trello card.

Step 2

The first time you use the Trello card tag option, you will be required to sign in to Trello from Front using your Trello credentials.

Step 3

After linking your Trello account, complete the detail fields to create a new task. When you're done, click Create card.

 

Step 4

Your task is now be posted. You will see a tag to the right of the subject line of your email. You can click the tag to open the task in Trello.

  • Hi - We use Front to both send and receive Twilio SMS....and love it!

    I wanted to attach photos to some of our automated texts ... but we cant seem to get the code to work. Twillio has great documentation for sending MMS direct through them, but we want to send through Front so we have a send / receive history in our inbox.

    Can anyone help with the code for MMS / texts with image attachments?

    Below is the code snippet we are trying to use.

    It would be great if someone from Front could help.

    Daniel

    $sms_content = 'Twilio testing';
    $user_phone_no = "+12028177617";
    $twilio_data = array();
    $twilio_data['to'] = array($user_phone_no);
    $twilio_data['body'] = $sms_content;
    $twilio_data['attachments'] = array("url"=>"https://tableathome.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_3888-150x150.jpg","filename"=>"IMG_3888-150x150.jpg");

    $curl = curl_init($twilio_url); 
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, true);
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array(
                'Authorization: Bearer '.$twilio_token,
                'Content-Type: multipart/form-data',
                'Accept: application/json',
                ));

    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($twilio_data)); 
    $tw_response = curl_exec( $curl );  
    $twilio_response = json_decode($tw_response);
    print_r($twilio_response);
    if($twilio_response->status == "accepted"){
      echo "test";
