Setting up the CloudApp Power-Up in Trello

CloudApp makes communicating with your team fast and easy. Quickly create GIFs, screen recordings, and annotated screenshots with CloudApp. Then attach them to your Trello cards to get the point across. GIFs are great for adding context to bug reports. There’s nothing like annotations (and emojis!) to request design changes.

You can setup your free CloudApp account here.


To get started on setting up the CloudApp Power up in Trello you'll first want to enable the CloudApp Power-Up inside Trello. 

Enable the CloudApp Power-Up by selecting “Power-Ups” from the board menu and then by clicking on 'Enable' / 'Disable' to activate or deactivate CloudApp. You have to be a member of that board's team to enable Power-Ups.

Authenticating CloudApp in Trello

Once the CloudApp Power-Up is enabled, you'll next need to authenticate your CloudApp account so you can bring your content into Trello.

To get started, select the CloudApp Power-Up icon, click on 'Link your CloudApp Account' and a new window will open requesting that you enter your username and password or Google Login. If you don't yet have an account, you can sign up for free here.

How Does the CloudApp Power-Up Work?
