Don't let important assets get lost because there's too many of them coming in; with this Dropbox-Trello integration, Zapier will help you track them all. Every time you add a new file on Dropbox, this automation will create a new card on any Trello list, mentioning all the file information you need to address each item as it arrives.

How It Works

  1. A new file is uploaded to Dropbox
  2. Zapier automatically creates a Trello card
