The most interesting feature is attaching Slack conversations to a Trello card. For teams that use both products there is a tension between where conversations want to happen (Slack) and where project artifacts need to live (Trello). So it's great to see something that brings them together. I do wonder if users on my team, and others, will be diligent about adding those conversations to cards. It would be fantastic if there was a way to associate them automatically, but I'm not sure how that would work.

@mvboeke This has been my favorite feature. Alongside minimizing context switching between Trello and Slack one of our goals for the app was to make it super easy to add context to cards, especially when there's a conversation in Slack that leads to a Trello card. I've also found myself clicking that button when someone pastes a card into Slack and there's discussion

@hamidp Does this require a Trello Business account? And what is the difference between the Business account Trello integration and this new Trello for Slack? Thanks

@thomas_tomhawk_burningham This works for all teams, free and paid. Paid teams get access to a Power-Ups which extend Trello as a platform and pull in data from other other sources. So you can use the Trello app for Slack completely free, and if you want the Power-Up it's paid. We're planning on merging it all together at some point as well.

@hamidp @mvboeke silly question perhaps, but where / how does one 'attach' a Slack conversation to a Trello card?

@lee_stuttaford @mvboeke There's an Attach Conversation button that basically attaches a link to the message where the card was sent. Gives you context around conversations. So say you paste a link to a card and then a conversation about it happens. You want to note that conversation somehow for future reference - just click Attach Conversation

@hamidp @mvboeke Found it, thanks! (Had to activate the app on Trello too, to see it)

@hamidp Enjoying the new app so far, but one thing that could stand improvement is the install process. I think I had to go through 4 authentication dialogs before everything was up and running. I'm not sure if that's an artifact of having multiple connections via the Slack app and Trello Powerup.

It was a pleasure partnering with Trello on this. We're huge Trello fans at Slack, and are super excited to see this get so much better... and looking forward to continuing to work with you.

@freak4pc That link goes nowhere for me :)
Shai Mishali@freak4pc · iOS Lead, RBI Digital
@hamidp That's odd :) Anyways my question was about customization of cards. We have a ticket template we use and if creating a new card from Slack could use a pre-defined template (or copy a "Template" and use that card), that would be a killer feature for our workflow!

@hamidp This looks great! :) I was wondering if there is a way to restrict what Slack members get linked to the Trello team?

@pjvea Not currently. You want to say that certain Slack members cannot join the Trello team?

@hamidp I found the opt-in process quite complicated - do you think it will get easier in the future? https://twitter.com/olekeding/st...

@olekeding Yes, coming up. What parts of the process were the most frustrating for you?

@hamidp The lost oversight of where I have to access rights

Nice! Trello for Web and Mobile already helped a lot! This is a cool one. Nice to see that more devs are preparing their products for Slack.
