Step 1) Create a free Zapier account

Zapier is an automation service which connects the apps you use every day with one another. To use Boords with Zapier, you’ll need a free Zapier account. If you have a Zapier account, sign in to it now.

Step 3) Create a Zap

Now that your Boords account is connected, it’s time to create a Zap! Give your new Zap a name; something like Boords Comments to Trello.

Select Boords as your Trigger App. If you can’t see Boords in the Trigger App dropdown menu, make sure you’ve connected Boords with Zapier.

Step 4) Set up your Comments Trigger

From the Boords Triggers menu, select ‘New Comment on Storyboard’. Every time you leave a comment on your chosen storyboard, this trigger will fire.


Next, choose the storyboard you’d like to connect to Trello:


Once you’ve selected your storyboard, Zapier will look for a comment which it can use to test your Zap. If there isn’t a comment on your storyboard, go ahead and add one now:

Once Zapier has found sample comment, it’s time to add your Trello Action step!

Step 5) Create your Trello Action

The possibilities are endless!
