Is it possible to add label colours to several cards at once? Perhaps some kind of select all option?

No, it is not possible to select multiple cards and apply a label to them; you have to add the labels individually.

Using the 1 - 6 keyboard shortcuts can make this easier, because you can add the label without having to open the card or the labels menu.

  • Note that this answer is no longer completely accurate. While bulk update functionality doesn't exist in base application, there are power-ups that provide this. I have been using Bulk Actions Jan 3, 2021 at 15:04

Selección múltiple para Trello is an extension for Google Chrome that can handle what you're looking for.


I have been doing this using the free Trello power-up Bulk Actions. Works great.

I've just cooked up myself a tool that helps in these kinds of tasks:

Batch Actions for Trello. It is still a work-in-progress, but it can already add labels to multiple selected cards.
