    Integrate JotForm with Trello with feature to upload files that will send to trello

    Asked by CDICORP on May 04, 2016 at 11:25 PM

    Since trello has a direct to board email address is there a way to set up a form to get emailed to taht board but also include the file attachments from the form?

    Hello CDICORP,

    Currently, we do not have integrations with Trello, but you can connect your form with Trello with the use of a middleware called Zapier. I cannot however provide information on behalf of Zapier what the possible integrations could be done for JotForm and Trello.

    Regarding the attachments, I'm not sure I understand your concern properly. Do you mean that the file attachment will send to Trello?

    Further, I will also submit a feature request to the development team for this request. Once we have this integration feature, we'll inform you as soon as possible.

    If I forward an email from gmail to my trello "email to board" email address it will include any file attachments


    If I set a form to send the submission to that same email address all I get is a new card with text and no attachments that were uploaded.


    So that's why I was asking if there was a way for the uploaded files to come over as attachments and not links to the files

    Thank you for your response, CDICORP,

    For clarification: currently what you're doing is the attachment is sent to your email and the email sends to trello.  Apparently, we do not allow file attachments to be sent with email notifications. Which is why it will not be possible doing that. 

    However, I have added this to the feature request for form integrations with Trello. We'll inform you as soon as possible once we have the feature available.

    Thanks and warm regards.

    For some reason I remember being able to have the uploaded files show up as attachments from my jotform notifications.  Was that possible before, but no longer is?

    We never allowed file attachments to be sent via email alerts. The only attachment we allowed to the email alerts was the PDF version of the submission. Would it be possible that you're referring to that one?

    Thank you for your response, CDICORP. I see now what you mean.

    What that does is it loads the image from the body of the email. It actually does not come as an attachment but the image comes directly from the source where the file is hosted.  

    But nonetheless, we are grateful to learn that by displaying the image, it allows to attach files with Trello.

    Thank you and warm regards :)

    If you are looking to get the file uploads in the form as an email attachment then we have a great news for you. Files uploaded to your form can now be sent as an attachment on email notifications. Please give it a try and let us know if you have any feedback.
