Trello in Cliq 

Trello in Cliq consists of a slash command and a message action. The initial steps to get started with Trello integration are consents and authentication as described below.

  • The first time you perform any action that has to connect with Trello, you will get an authentication dialog requesting permission to connect with your Trello account. After authenticating your account, the connection will be established between your Trello and Cliq.
  • Also on using any component of Trello integration the very first time, you will get a consents box requesting permission to access your data. This consents box is to ensure privacy by letting you know how your data will be handled. To know more, check out the related link at the bottom of this page.
