Exporting data from Trello

Trello currently has an export feature that is available to all board members, including board Observers. It can be found under the Board Menu > More > Print and Export. The format is JSON, which lends itself well to technical usages, but doesn't load into common programs like Excel. Thus, the export is primarily for people looking to crunch the data with programs of their own or just to back up their data in case of emergency. It is not currently possible to import a JSON export to re-create a Trello board. 

Export your board data from the board's menu.

As to our attitude toward your data, we are definitely pro-data portability. Please see https://trello.com/privacy.

Export all boards with Trello Premium

Trello Premium lets you export all of the boards in your Workspace in both CSV and JSON format. You can also include all of your attachments as a .zip file in their native format. To do so, go to your Premium Workspace page and select the "Export" tab. 

Please note that you'll need to be a Workspace admin to access the "Export" tab. See trello.com/premium to learn more.

With Trello Premium, export your Workspace data with just one click.

Export to Excel / Spreadsheets

If you need spreadsheet support, boards exported with Premium include CSV exports which can be imported into spreadsheet applications like Excel. Each user in a Premium Workspace (not including guests) has the ability to export the board as a CSV.

Personal Data Export

In addition to the above, you can also export your personal data. We have another article for that that you can find here.
