Basically, I have a big project that involves 150+ individual stores. I will have a set checklist for each store and be moving the stores through various stages in my project.

I want to:

  1. Make sure I am going about this the right way (Making Stores Cards)
  2. Create 150+ cards
  3. If this isn't the best way, can you suggest a better way? The checklist will pretty much be the same for each store.

There is no technical limit to the number of cards you can have on a board, but there is a practical limit. You might want to adjust your process and break it down into multiple boards. You can easily move cards between boards using the "Move..." button on the back of cards.

Is there somewhere in the Trello documentation that confirms this? I couldn't find it anywhere in help, though I just tried it out quick and was able to add over 250 cards to a board. (the only limit I saw: can only 100 cards at a time) – sgryzko Jul 15 '14 at 23:34

If you use Chrome, you might use this add-on (Kanban WIP for Trello via the Chrome Web Store) to limit the number of cards. It doesn't block cards from being added when you go over the defined maximum, but it colors the cards.

A work-in-progress limit can be added to a Trello list by adding the limit to the list title in braces. If you name your list QA [5], this sets a work-in-progress limit of 5 items to the QA list. When the number of cards in the QA list exceeds 5, the list will be highlighted in red.
