If you're having trouble keeping an eye on changes to your Trello cards, this Zap is for you. Once activated, a new text file will be created in Google Docs for each activity item on your cards. This will happen automatically every time there is activity on a card, and you can select to watch for activity everywhere or only on specific boards, lists, or cards. It's an easy way to keep a log of everything that happens on Trello, or a way to backup your Trello cards to Google Docs.

How It Works

  1. New activity happens on a card in Trello
  2. Zapier automation creates a new text file in Google Docs
