Basically, we are repeating the same task. I would like to know if there are templates for checklist. This way, I don't have to retype it each time I assign it to someone.

There is currently a feature request card called Templates for boards, lists, cards, and checklists on the Trello Development board.

The note on it says:

We're still looking at how we want to implement this, but until we do, Phillip Epstein has created a Chrome Extension that does many of the things that people want.


Old card for checklists https://trello.com/card/board/make-checklists-re-usable/4d5ea62fd76aa1136000000c/4e1e0ab1802ec6e81c0ee19c

So the answer is no, checklist templates do not currently exist.

  • Nowadays, the answer is yes, checklist templates currently (since 2013) do exist. See help.trello.com/article/… that reads Create a card "Presentation Template" that contains checklists for all the things you need to do to prepare for a presentation. When you have to give the presentation again, just copy the card. So, the 'template' for the checklist is contained on a card. Copying the card will create a new card plus checklist according the original checklist. Jul 23, 2017 at 18:21

Yes, is is possible. The Trello help page on copying mentions how to do that.

For more background information, there is an earlier help page in Trello on templates, and the original Trello card for this feature.

  • Done. Although my restyled answer will not replace the (outdated) accepted answer. If it was you, you might remove your downvote. Jul 17, 2013 at 8:32
