I am trying out a new use case in Trello and playing with the idea of holding a list of Trello lists (Trello doesn't seem to support searching by lists).

Is this possible?

If you were able to create a link to a list, what would happen when you opened the link? (i.e. how would it be different from a link to the board the list was on?) – Daniel LeCheminant May 4 '12 at 15:40
@DanielLeCheminant Hmm I haven't thought about that. Seeing that there are only so many lists that can be displayed at once. Maybe it redirects to a view of the list on screen (an anchor?) Though that comes off as a feature request. So, let me give an example trello.com/board/stack-overflow-polls-and-lists/…;, say I have 100 lists of polls, they would just span the whole screen. What would be the easiest way to get to say the "What is the single most influential book every programmer should read?" list if it is not currently displayed on the screen? – phwd May 4 '12 at 15:51
There's already an implementation of displaying one list, sort of. If you make your window narrow (or view your board on iPhone), the display switches to a vertical format with tabs for each list. Clicking on a tab "scrolls" the window to put that list at the top of the screen. There's no direct link though. It would be weird to have this single-silo view show up in a typical wide browser window, but the example is a good jumping-off point for brainstorming Linking To A List. – slothbear Dec 31 '12 at 15:18

@phwd This question is in the right spot and a valid question as that (I typed exactly this wording into google). Your particular use-case may be different but the question should be open for others to opine, update etc – nhed Jun 24 '15 at 22:10

One of the ideas that's been brought up independently from several quarters is the ability to include a foreign list into your board, allowing you to create "mash-ups" of a bunch of different lists. It could initially be read-only, but later would allow you to copy or move cards from the included lists. Would this address your use case?

Maybe I'm not sure I feel as though this might be a bit leaning to something else. I'll try to gather my thoughts and shoot an email to feature-ideas@ if I don't find something that isn't in the development board. Thanks for trying to decipher – phwd May 31 '12 at 6:34
