Yes, you can! All you have to do is type #xx where xx is the card number - as far as I know you can do this anywhere that you input text - I have tested it in descriptions and comments. For example you might have something like this in a card description: See also: --------- - Card #23 (Tidy shed) - Card #4 (Clear out garage) - Card #45 (Do that other ...

Yes it is possible to link individual cards and even move a card between boards. To find a card's link: Open the card (press Enter). Click the More... link at the bottom of the right side panel. You should see a text box containing the link. To move a card: Open the card (press Enter). Click the Move... button in the right side panel. Choose your ...

I don't think there is a way to display card numbers from the board view. You can suggest this feature at feature-ideas@trello.com A quick workaround for this until there is a solution is to hover over the card title in the board view. The URL preview provided by the browser (e.g. in Chrome the URL preview of the link is at the bottom left of the browser) ...

Zapier can do this with https://zapier.com/z/60m/zapbook/schedule/trello/9149/create-trello-card-every-month/! It is very simple but very powerful, you can even dynamically insert the day of week or time into the card (it doesn't have to be static content). Of course, you can also make this a daily or weekly task, you call! Here is the link: ...

You can do this for free with just a little extra effort. We have a specific board where all the cards are "recurring". No need to create a card for every occurrence of a task, just re-use the same cards! Our board has lists for Daily, Weekly, Monthly/Quarterly, Once and Completed/Retired task lists. Some cards have the day in the title (Tue: Clean Desk) ...

When you click to add a card, on the right side of the dialogue that pops up you can see a down arrow. Click that, click "position" and you can select the position from the right side of that prompt. You can also type your card content like this: Sample content ^top Then click the "top" prompt that comes up.

Trello is very much like a wallboard with Post-it note cards with lists. Anyone with physical (edit) access to the board can make changes. Currently, the best approach is to discuss the issues with your team members and set guidelines for everyone. You may not be able to enforce the guidelines, but card activity tracks who made what changes so you can ...

I think you could accomplish something similar to this by doing the following: Use your board's email-in feature (settings -> Mail Settings) to let users mail in new cards. You can even use IFTTT to do things like "If text message tagged #idea, Then send gmail to 1234+myideaboard@trello.com". Alternately, you could create a web form that emails to this ...

You may be a member of the 'Organisation' but not explicitly a member of the 'Board'. You can probably browse to the Board, but not make any changes, add cards, etc. Once you are a 'member' or 'admin' of the Board, you'll be able to do all these things. In summary, you need to be added to the individual boards as well as the organisation.

Trello uses Markdown in its description, not HTML. However, there are online tools that convert from one to the other, such as Pandoc. I don't think Zapier has any content conversion utilities, so you might have to do this manually after the card is created.

Zapier has access to the Trello API. IFTTT has access to a calendar. Both have access to Google Drive. Create an event that adds a Google Drive document once per month in IFTTT. I've done this step for you, if you want to use my recipe: https://ifttt.com/recipes/68810 Use the new triggered file in Google Drive as the event for a new Trello Card in ...

As far as I know it's the same thing except: You will automatically subscribe to new cards added to the board. You won't see the eye symbol on every card if you're subscribed to the board. From this card on the trello development board: Board and List Subscribe People are looking for a way to get notified of all actions on a given card, list, ...

From the Trello help guide: Organization admins can make the organizations visibility public or private. You can change the setting in the "Account" page. Private organizations will not show up on your profile when other people view it. They will also not show up in search results. Organizations also have admins which have the ability to add / ...

You can't do this by default, but if you're using Chrome, there is an Extension for this: Board Printer for Trello There is a big bunch of useful Trello Chrome Extensions in the Web Store.

If you go to a member's profile (such as https://trello.com/aarond), you will see a "Cards" link just like on your own profile. This will show all cards that the person is assigned to on any board that you are allowed to see. On a single board, you can open the right sidebar, open the "Menu", and click "Filter Cards" (or press 'f' on your keyboard). From ...

You could subscribe to the whole board, lists or cards and get notifications of what is happening there. This page will give you more information: http://help.trello.com/customer/portal/articles/930771-subscribing-to-cards-lists-and-boards Note: if you have a highly active board it will become in a nightmare... :D

Because many mail clients automatically hard wrap long lines, Trello ignores single line breaks. So if you send a message like this: Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to ...

In the description, at the place where you want to start copying, press the left mouse button and immediately start moving towards the end of the text you want to select. Then release the mouse button. After that, press Ctrl-C to copy the text selected to the clipboard. (In the title, the card immediately goes into edit-title-mode when you release the mouse ...

It's now possible to choose Monday or Sunday, reportedly: http://help.trello.com/customer/portal/articles/1277216-setting-the-first-day-of-the-week-for-the-calendar Browser locale is the language you've set your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer...) although in my case it doesn't seem to work in any of the views for English UK (using Chrome). ...

You can do this several ways, depending how you want to organize your lists and flow. There is no "this card is completed" function per se, it should be defined in a different way. The first (seperate list) is my favorite, but the second works as well for some projects. I wouldn't personally use my third option, but it is a valid method I guess. 'standard' ...

Update: Trello now has checklist reordering. (source) Since the lists sort alphabetically/numerically, a simple workaround is to number them. E.g.: 1 - My first feature 2 - Another feature etc.

Not currently, at the moment you must open the card to see which items have been completed. Without opening a card you can only see how many items that have been completed across all checklists (eg: 2/9, even if 1 item in a checklist of 4 and another item in a checklist of 5 have been completed).

It doesn't look like the file:/// syntax is supported. I tried Markdown and "plain text" formatting in the description and checklist items using file:///, mapped drive and UNC syntaxes, unfortunately none of the combinations worked. Typing a web address (http://) into a description or a checklist item works (even without Markdown, which checklists don't ...

You can copy a checklist on a board (Open card, "Add Checklist...", "Copy Items From..."), but there is no option to copy across boards, sorry. You might try out the API if you want something custom like that. You can also copy boards ("Options" > "Copy Board..."), if that helps.

The only way I can see this being possible at the moment is to use the Trello API and have an external system periodically "add" a card. The API call to use is listed on this page https://trello.com/docs/api/card/index.html

1 - Are you sure you made your email settings set to "Instantly?" If you have the "Periodically" option set, you will only receive an email every hour or so. 2 - On top of that, if you check Trello often (often enough to view the notifications directly before an email is sent), then you might not get email updates. You are emailed a collection of unread ...

I managed to resolve this, by simply restarting Chrome. I can only assume it was related to something going a bit screwy with the browser (or one of the plugins) For info, if anyone else has this problem, my plugins are as follows: Adblock Plus (Beta) 1.2 Facebook Disconnect 1.3.0 Minecraft Wiki Searcher 0.3 ScrewAds - Block, Skip, Remove YouTube Ads ...
