Adding checklists to cards

Last Updated: Apr 17, 2014 03:44PM EDT

A checklist is a way of keeping track of subtasks within a card. You can add multiple checklists to a single card.

Adding

Add Checklists via the "Add Checklist" button in the "Actions" section of the card detail. Enter a title (or use the default "Checklist"), then click 'Add'. 
 

Add a checklist from the card back.

 

Editing

Add new checklist items via the "Add checklist item" input in a checklist. Mark an item as complete or incomplete by clicking the checkbox to the left of the title. Rename a checklist or checklist item by clicking the title, changing the text, and clicking save. You can reorder a checklist item by dragging.
 

Add items, check off completed items, rename your checklist and items, and drag and drop items.

 

You can also mention a board member or add emoji to a checklist item from the drop down menu when adding or editing a checklist item.

 
@ mention or add emoji to your checklist items.

 

Deleting

Delete a checklist or checklist item by clicking the menu button that appears when hovering, and selecting delete.
 

Delete a checklist you no longer need.

 

Copy Checklist Items

Copy the items from another checklist on your board to a new checklist by selecting the checklist you wish to copy from the "Copy Items From..." drop down menu in "Add Checklist."
 

Easily copy checklist items from another checklist.

 

Import Checklist Items

You can easily import items from a list (or a spreadsheet) to a checklist as long as each item is on a separate line.  Copy the list items and paste them in to the "Add item" field in your checklist and press 'enter.'  A separate checklist item will be created for each listed item.

You can also turn a checklist item into a card by clicking the item and selecting "Convert to Card". It removes the item and creates a card with the title of the item beneath the current card.
