Adding checklists to cards

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


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

Add a checklist from the card back.


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.


Delete a checklist you no longer need by clicking "Delete..." to the right of the checklist name. Delete a checklist item by clicking the item to edit it, then clicking "Delete" in the bottom right.

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.

Import lists as checklist items.


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.

Turn a checklist item in to a card.

You can also click and drag to re-order checklists and checklist items. Click and drag to change the order of your checklists, or to move a checklist item from one list to another.
