Are there any tips or tricks integrating with Microsoft Team? Your feedback is appreciated. I am trying to expand use of teamwork within my organization and this will assist us.

Hi Erick,

At the moment we don’t have an integration with Microsoft Teams, sorry I don’t have better news!
Zapier is currently working on setting up a zap for Microsoft Teams, submit your email on this web page (https://zapier.com/apps/microsoft-teams/integrations) and you will be notified once it is available. When it’s released you will be able to integrate Teamwork Projects and MS Teams.

What happens to the checklists in Trello? One of the things holding me back from moving my Trello work into my TW account is that the TW board makes every task a card. Trello allows a card with checklist items for each step. Many of my Trello cards have 15 checklist items. This would make a TW board very crowded. I also don’t know how you would keep things together.

David Cannon

Hi John. When you import a Trello card into Teamwork Projects, it will be created as a main task and placed on the corresponding board column. Checklists for that Trello card will then be created as subtasks to that main task in Projects, but those subtasks are not added to the board columns to prevent over-crowding, as you mentioned. You can simply select the main task to then access those “checklist” subtasks. Also, just so you know, every task you create in Teamwork Projects does not have to show on your boards. It is completely up to you whether you want them to be visible there. If you create the task from within the boards, then obviously they will show there by default, but you can later remove them, or you can simply create them in your task list without specifying an associated board column. Then you will only see them in your task list, and not on your boards. Hope that helps.

In my experience, it requires little effort to make the system action-oriented. Its layout is great for running projects, keeping teams and processes on the track but in order to get task-level details in can be little complicated.

Andrea Russell

David, for the last few weeks I have been trying out Trello and one of the things that got my attention was the checklist. Now that you explained it as a sub-task I will try that. John thanks for posting.

Mike Szyszka

Right now we’re playing with a Zapier integration to create Trello Cards out of each Task in TeamWork so we can show tasks from multiple projects in one column.

I read a blog post from April 2017 when the Project Boards feature launched (https://blog.teamwork.com/board-view-arrived-teamwork-projects/) and it seemed the ability to show tasks from multiple projects in a Kanban-style board view was highly requested in the comments.

It was noted that this feature that was currently being considered and I’m wondering if Is there an update on this or should we still plan to utilize Trello for this going forward?
