What is Trello?

Trello is a great tool for project and task management. It includes Kanban boards that can be easily shared and customized.

How can you use it?

Trello can create new cards for each customer that you add into LiveAgent, or add new cards for new activities, new comments, and automatically move each card into a respective to-do list. The integration can also work in reverse. Whenever you add a card into Trello, you’ll receive a ticket inside LiveAgent.


  • Advanced task management
  • Never switch between apps
  • Better workflow
  • Keeps track of everything important happening in Trello

How to integrate LiveAgent and Trello via Zapier

Zapier makes it easy to connect two applications in a matter of minutes. It helps you customize triggers and actions without any coding required.

Make sure you have a Zapier account. If not, you can create it at this link or directly on the LiveAgent and Trello integration page. When you’re there, you will see a trigger and action selection.

Select a trigger and an action. There are multiple options so you can pick one that fits your customer support team. The choice is yours. For this example, we picked the Trello trigger “New Card” and the LiveAgent action “Create Conversation.” When the action is executed, it will send an email into your email ticketing system every time there’s a new card created in Trello.

Click on the blue Connect LiveAgent + Trello button and you will get into the Trigger and Action configuration section. In our case, Trello comes first because it’s a Trigger. Customize the Trigger details according to your needs. Then click on the blue continue button. If you didn’t add your Trello email address, you can add it in this section or select it from a list of your accounts from previous integration setups.

Zapier will require you to test your Trigger. Make sure you filled out all of the options correctly and then test the trigger.

The next step is to configure your LiveAgent action. Decide what you want LiveAgent to do when the trigger is activated. This section requires you to fill out more detailed information but not all of it is necessary. You will be required to add or select your LiveAgent email address in this section.

When you’re done, another test will be needed to make sure the entire integration works according to plan. Go ahead and try it out. If there’s something wrong, Zapier will automatically offer you a troubleshooting guide to help you out.
