Set the Trello trigger as "New card added"

Every playbook starts with a trigger. The trigger detects changes in your connected apps and initiates your playbook's actions.

Click "Add trigger" and select "New card added" under Trello automation. Then, select the list you want to monitor. This will allow your playbook to automatically detect new cards added in Trello and initiate necessary actions.

If this is your first time using a Trello integration in Relay.app, a prompt will guide you through the connection process.
