Embedding files in Trello

Whimsical files can be embedded in Trello Cards. Here’s how:

Open a card in Trello, and paste the file’s URL into the description field. Click “Save”:

The link is transformed into a “SmartLink” automatically. Hover over the SmartLink and click “Preview” within the thumbnail to display the board in a modal:


  • The file must be public if you want other people to view it. You do that by setting your Whimsical board to "Anyone with a link can view". — It’s not possible to view boards which require you to be logged into Whimsical.
  • Docs aren’t currently supported, only boards, wireframes and projects may be embedded.
