Using Trello with Microsoft Outlook

If you use Microsoft Outlook for Windows, you can integrate any of your Trello boards' calendars with Outlook, so you can view your calendars and your cards with due dates together in one place. Right now, Microsoft Outlook for Mac doesn't support adding iCal subscriptions.

To begin, enable the iCalendar feed and find the iCalendar URL for your board.

  1. Open the board menu
  2. Click "Power-Ups,"
  3. Click "Calendar." Enable the Power-Up if you haven't already.
  4. Then click the gear icon to see the "Calendar Settings"
  5. Once there click "Enabled" to enable the iCalendar feed
  6. Copy the URL from "Your Personal iCalendar Feed."

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

Open Microsoft Outlook, and click the Calendar icon in the lower left corner to open the Calendar view. Then click on "Open Calendar" in the ribbon.

From the dropdown list, click on "From Internet..."

Next, paste the iCalendar feed URL in the box, and click "OK." You'll see another popup asking you to confirm adding the calendar—click "Yes" to confirm.

By default, Outlook will now display the Trello board calendar side-by-side with your Outlook calendar. You can click on any calendar name in the My Calendars box to enable or disable it from this view. Outlook can't pull the name of the Trello board, so any calendar you import this way will be named "Untitled."

From the My Calendars section, you can right-click on the calendar name, and click on "Rename Calendar" to rename it.

If you add several Trello boards, renaming them will help distinguish which board is which.

NOTE: Changes made in Trello won't instantly update to third-party applications. Outlook will try to update the calendar contents during each download interval, which is configurable within Outlook.
