Is there a way to Hide & Unhide a Trello list?

Or is there another kind of work around?

Currently, the only way to "hide" a list is to archive it.

Archive List on the List Popup Menu

You can view your archived cards and lists by clicking the "View Archived Items" button on the right side of the board.

No I don't want it to go to Archive but rather just hide it from the other Lists. It can still be opened/viewed as the items are still active. Archive is where we place our perm. closed cards so it become a nightmare to find something. –  Buddy Nov 30 '11 at 19:59

You can slide it all the way to the right so that if you have more than the ~5 lists that fit in the screen it will not be visible - but still active and accessible.


Another option: if you don't have a lot of cards you could add a label "Active" to the cards in the other lists and filter for that label.

+1 for options that work today even though they are not true full solutions. –  Chris Magnuson May 13 '14 at 15:23

I needed this myself, so I wrote https://github.com/shesek/trello-hide-lists. Check it out.

There's a similar question on stackexchange here, where Rich Armstrong of Trello mentions a proposed collapsible lists Trello feature you can vote on:
