2-way Google Calendar integration

Synchronization with Google Calendar lets you combine your work and personal tasks in one place and get an overview of your whole schedule, so you can focus on the right things at the right time.

How it works

When you synchronize a Trello board with Google Calendar, all the cards on your Trello board with due dates will be added to your Google Calendar and vice versa.
