Is it posible to make a sublist inside a Trello list? (It would be very useful.)

Do you mean adding a checklist to a card, or a sublist inside a checklist? – Kenzo Dec 20 '12 at 20:18
Can you explain use cases where it would be useful? Maybe it can be accomplished differently in Trello. – Dom Delimar Dec 27 '12 at 2:58


A list is collection of vertically-arranged cards. They may represent a collection of ideas, things to remember, or different stages of a workflow.

Sort of, if you ignore the semantics for a minute.

  1. Create a 'summary' board to summarize your different projects (each card = a project)
  2. Create a seperate board for each of those projects (each card = a task)
  3. Copy the hyperlink for each project board [click on the board name in the top left corner, then click share, then 'CTRL C' the hyperlink...], then go back to the 'summary' board and paste it into either the description or the 'activities' box of the relavent card for that project
  4. you can do this ad-infinitum to create (hyperlinked) boards inside boards inside boards...

You can try using Nests for Trello. It is a Chrome extension. It allows you to create a board as a card. Based on your structure,

  1. The "summary board" will be the main board.
  2. Each project will be a list within the "summary board"
  3. and within the list you can add a board for that project (which will show up as a card). but when you click on it, it will bring you to a new board (for that specific project).

This answer would be much more useful with a link to the extension. Also, if you have a vested interest in what you're recommending you must disclose it. Please see the help center. – Al E. Jan 14 at 0:47
