    Trello has some limitations in using it for GTD. Has anyone discovered any particular Power Ups to improve it's use?

    I'm not a Trello user, but watched the webinar on GTD Connect and read the Set Up Guide. I'm currently using Todoist, but have always loved the looks of Kanban boards!

    I am a die-hard Trello GTDer and love Power-ups. The main ones for me are:
    • Calendar (scheduled items)
    • Custom Fields (due dates, other relevant info)
    • Google Drive (file storage)
    • Snoozed cards (tickler items)
    The number one tool I use with Trello, though, is ButlerBot: https://butlerfortrello.com/butlerbot.html

    You essentially tell it to do things when triggers happen. Since ButlerBot is a "user", you can set rules, and rules fire, on every platform. I use it to add checklists to cards when certain labels are applied, to archive lists and create new ones at the beginning of each month, etc. It can do pretty much anything and makes Trello incredibly powerful.
