Viewing your cards’ due dates on a calendar in iOS

Currently, the calendar Power-Up isn't available for our mobile apps — however, you can still view your cards’ due dates by adding the board’s iCal feed to a third party calendar app. Two popular options are Google Calendar and the built-in iOS Calendar app.

Google Calendar

You can follow the instructions from this guide to connect your Trello board to Google Calendar. These steps won’t be available in the mobile apps for Trello or Google Calendar, so you’ll need to do this part either on your desktop or in your phone’s browser (make sure to change the view for Google Calendar to “Desktop” if you’re viewing the site on a phone).

  1. To enable the iCalendar feed for a particular board:
  2. Open the board menu
  3. Click "Power-Ups,"
  4. Click "Calendar." Enable the Power-Up if you haven't already.
  5. Then click the gear icon to see the "Calendar Settings"
  6. Once there click "Enabled" to enable the iCalendar feed
  7. Copy the URL from "Your Personal iCalendar Feed."
  8. Open Google Calendar
  9. On the left side, choose "Other calendars" > "Add by URL"
  10. Paste in the iCalendar URL you copied from Trello
  11. Click "Add Calendar"

Anyone with the iCalendar URL will be able to access your calendar, so don't post it publicly.

NOTE: Changes made in Trello won't instantly update to third party applications such as Google Calendar. We estimate that Google Calendar and other third party applications update their external feeds approximately once per day, but that is dependent on how frequently the third party application pings the Trello servers.

iOS Calendar app

Another option is to add the feed directly to your iPhone calendar by following these steps:

  1. Log in to Trello in your phone’s browser (not the app)
  2. Open the board you want to copy the calendar from.
  3. Open the board menu.
  4. Click "Power-Ups".
  5. Click "Calendar". Enable the Power-Up if you haven't already.
  6. Then, click the gear icon to see the "Calendar Settings".
  7. Once there, click "Enabled" to enable the iCalendar feed.
  8. Copy the URL from "Your Personal iCalendar Feed."
  9. Open your phone’s "Settings" app.
  10. Select "Mail, Contacts, Calendars", and tap on "Add Account".
  11. From the list, choose "Other", and then choose "Add Subscribed Calendar".
  12. Where it says "Server", paste in the calendar feed URL, and then tap "Next".
  13. On the next screen, you can change the description to something easy to identify, like the name of the board. Then tap "Save".

Once you’ve added the iCal feed to the calendar app of your choice, you can customize alerts for those due dates within the app.
