Installing the Notejoy Power-Up for Trello

Creating or attaching a Notejoy note to a Trello card

With the Notejoy Power-Up installed, you can now access Notejoy from directly within a Trello card. From within a Trello card, you'll see a Notejoy option at the far right that allows you to create or attach a note.

Creating a note will do just what the name suggests, create a brand new note and attach it to the Trello card. Attaching a note will allow you to search notes within your existing Notejoy account and attach them.

Notes will directly open up within Trello, allowing you to easily view and edit without leaving the Trello application. Notes created or attached in Trello will also be accessible (and real-time editable) from within Notejoy as well.

At any time, you can remove a note from a card by selecting Remove at the top right of the Notes section.

A note on view permissions: Keep in mind that team members will only be able to view and edit notes when they have permission on the Notejoy side to do so. If they do not have permission to view a note attached to a Trello card, they'll see a link to request permission.
