How it's done

Mapping statuses and sections gives you the ability to decide where your work items will end up in each tool. For example, you can specify that a task that is in your To-Do List should go into the corresponding tool's backlog when it syncs.

This exact functionality will vary depending on the tools you integrate, but generally follows a similar set-up process. Here's how you would map sections when setting up a flow between a Trello board and a Jira project.

Scroll down to the lists mapping and click on the gear to the left of the mapping. This will expand the pairing.

Unito will automatically pair up lists and statuses with the same name. If the one you need isn't listed, though, you can add it by clicking on Add more lists & statuses.

From there, click on Select a value to pick a list and a status to pair.

And just like that, you've added a mapping! Note that you can also click on the plus sign on either side to add multiple statuses (or lists) to a specific mapping.

In this example, Trello cards in the In Progress list will be synced with Jira tasks with both the In Progress and Selected for Development statuses.

Example mappings

The exact fields you pair in this mapping will depend on the actual tools you're using. That said, here are some of the most common ones.

Trello ←→ Trello

Not all Trello boards use the typical to-do, doing, and done lists that so many boards do. If your Trello lists have different names, you'll need to map each pair individually. This can also be necessary if one Trello board has more lists than the other.

Trello ←→ Jira

What Trello calls lists, Jira calls statuses. Unless you've built a Trello expressly to represent work in Jira, you'll probably have to map them up individually.

Asana ←→ Trello

You might love your Trello boards, but they might not translate directly to how your Asana projects are structured. No problem! You can easily match your Asana project's sections and columns to Trello lists.
