How to Manage Projects with the Trello Calendar Connector

Ah, project management. So much to do and so many moving parts to coordinate.
The bigger the project, the more pieces of the puzzle there are to fit together, and the more you have to think about.
Trello is one of the world’s most well-known – and much-loved – project management tools. It helps you to keep track of all those moving parts in an easy-to-navigate and simple-to-use interface.
However, it’s not always the best tool for managing your time. There’s no way to set deadlines and compare those deadlines with the other projects you have going on.
The best project management tool…made even better
Our Trello Calendar Connector makes it easier for you to manage projects of all shapes and sizes.
Set deadlines for each stage of your project; sync your projects with your calendar; even block out time in your calendar to work on your project so that nobody can book meetings with you while you’re working on it.
Everything syncs between Trello and your calendar in real-time, meaning you don’t need to worry about conflicts or out-of-date information.
Trello + your calendar = supercharged project management
What makes the Trello Calendar Connector truly special is that you don’t even have to open Trello to manage your events – you can do it from your calendar.
Adjust how long a task will take, what that task is, or even when the deadline is.
Our Calendar Connector allows you to set deadlines for each of your cards.
These deadlines then sync across to your calendar, meaning that you can see them at-a-glance.
This also makes it easier when it comes to your other commitments, as you can schedule them around your project.
Plan your deep work
Knowing when you’re going to be doing some serious work on your project helps to keep you focused and allows you to plan in advance.
The all-day events feature means that you can set yourself a day to focus on your project. This day will then be blocked out in your schedule.
Should anyone using a calendar connected booking software try to organize a meeting with you, your day of working on your project won’t be suggested.
Reminders sent via your calendar ensure that no matter when your deadline is, you can’t forget it. You don’t need to try and memorize it, or login to Trello to check when things are due.
Any changes you make to your card are updated automatically in your calendar.
Likewise if you make any changes in your calendar, they’ll automatically sync across to your Trello boards, too.
Wait! Super cool discovery. With the direct trello integration you can't move the dates around on Google Calendar, BUT the cronofy connector allows such things. So if you need to readjust your time slots for tasks, you can just slide em around! =) SO good!
