I can easily drag cards between lists, and I can also rearrange the lists in a board but I am not seeing a way to move a list to another board?

Is this possible?

Moving a list to another board is not currently possible, but it's an idea that's under consideration

    @ripper234 Yes, there is a way. First create a new board. Then for each card in the list you want to move, click its dropdown, select "Move" and select the new board (and potentially a list). Commented Mar 6, 2012 at 15:22

It looks like they implemented this a couple months ago. Hover over your list, click the chevron next to the title, and choose "Move List".

  • Strange that Move List can go to another board but Copy List can't.

  • Also strange that "Move all cards in this list" doesn't allow selecting another board, but "Move list" does??? Very weird.

First copy the list in the same board and after move the list to another board

  • How do you suggest copying the list? Can you provide more clear steps for users? Commented Jun 13, 2014 at 14:22

Moving a list to another board is definitely feasible.

You can follow the steps illustrated from the official help: http://help.trello.com/article/806-moving-cards-or-lists

Where it tells you that:

"You can also move lists to other boards from the list's menu. Click on the current board to select the new target board."

Notice that you have to click on the current board like the picture shows below:

enter image description here

Then it will open a pull-down menu and you can find what ever board you have created and choose any of them to move into.


This is what I did as a work around:

I opened boards in different browser tabs and copy and pasted the information in the from one board to another. It works nicely.


Yes, and you can do this as follows:

  1. Click the ... button of the list you want to copy
  2. Click copy list
  3. Click the ... button of the copy of your list
  4. Click move list
  5. Select the board you want to move it to
