Matching information to process is the heart of many projects and sometimes applications help you know what to do but not when to do it. It only gets weirder when you know when to do something but not what it is you have to do. Use Zapier to organize your activities around your issues with by sending Trello new card activity to GitHub as new issues. This is a great way to know what to do and when to do it.

Note: This Zapier integration doesn't import any existing card activities in to GitHub only new activities after you've set them up.

How It Works

  1. New activity on a Trello card triggers Zapier
  2. Zapier creates a new GitHub issue
