Tame your email inbox and your Trello notifications
BenkoBoard is a unique and collaborative email experience. Connect your Gmail account to Trello. Reduce Trello notification "noise" and create one spot to manage internal and external communication.
How does it work?
BenkoBoard is a web application that connects Gmail to a powerful project management tool called Trello, so you can use Trello as your email client. Choose whether all or some of your email goes into Trello. Attachments are imported and you can reply directly from the card in Trello from any device (phone, tablet, PC). You can also create new emails from within Trello, send/receive/view attachments and automatically BCC in an address (like a CRM).
Will this work on my mobile or tablet device?
BenkoBoard runs in the background and not as a Trello power-up, and so it will work with any device. Emails move seamlessly into Trello, where you can prioritise, collaborate and reply to them. Trello works well on any device, and all your email stays safely in Gmail (both the inbound messages and any new emails or replies you send).
I don't use Trello, can I still use Benko Board?
Even if you already use another system for project or job management, chances are there is a gap it can't fill. Trello, in conjunction with our other automation packages, can fill that gap. So if you already use another system, we will help you determine how Trello and BenkoBoard can complement that system, however Trello is the only system that BenkoBoard works with so you have to use Trello, in order to use BenkoBoard.
I tried Trello and I didn't like it, does that mean I won't like BenkoBoard?
Chances are that when you tried Trello, the reason you didn't like it was because the notifications are too noisy, and it's hard to get a good idea of everything you are accountable for across all Trello boards in a way you can easily reprioritise. BenkoBoard fixes both of these problems. With these problems fixed, and in conjunction with our other automation packages, Trello becomes a transformational business management tool that is unparalleled in the productivity space.
What about security? Will I have to give you access to my email?
