Using the Trello integration

Here's how the Trello integrations works: you connect your Status Hero team and Trello, select Trello boards to monitor, and Status Hero will match up relevant Trello card updates to your team members. Their updates will appear in the activity page and alongside their check-ins. (You'll need to be a Team Lead or Account Administrator to do this.)

Don't worry, only "team visible" and "public boards" are included. Activity from your private boards will remain private.



To set up this integration, visit the integrations page in the team settings in Status Hero. Click open the Trello panel and click the "Connect Trello" button. You'll be prompted to authorize the integration by Trello.

Once connected, select the Trello boards you'd like to monitor on the integrations page.  To select multiple boards, use ctrl+select (cmd+select on Mac).


When someone from your team adds, updates, or archives a Trello card, Status Hero will add the activity to their check-in.


Once a few activities have been logged, you can use the auto-complete functionality in check-ins and comments to auto-link to issues on your Trello board.

Simply type "#" and a string of text that is part of your Trello item and you'll be able to select and auto-insert a fully formatted link to the item!


  • Look for updates in the activity stream first. The check-ins on the dashboard will sum up commits from the previous period. (The check-ins essentially say "here's what I did yesterday, and here is the Trello activity to go along with that.

  • Make sure that the update authors match up by first and last name with people on your team in Status Hero.

  • Note that only team-wide boards will show up for selection in Status Hero, not private ones.

  • Status Hero won't be able to record data retroactively. Make sure you generate some activity in the boards you've selected in Trello in order to test things out after you've set up the connection.
