Can you import into Trello?
Trello has some basic importing capabilities if all you need to do is
add tasks with specific titles. If that is all you need to do, simply
click to add a card in Trello, copy and paste your list of card titles
(one card per row) then hit enter and let Trello create your cards. If
you want to import other data alongside the card titles, such as card
descriptions, due date, labels, members, custom fields and checklists you will want
to use our imports Power-Up.
