Moving a card from one Trello board to another has been implemented recently but I am still missing some basic "duplicate card" functionality. Is it possible to duplicate or clone a card on the same board as its original?

In my use case for some software development, I would like some sub-functionalities (listed in a card checklist) stay in my project backlog while others on the same card are brought to the next step toward life.

I am not asking for some split function inside Trello, which I guess would be relatively heavy to implement. Duplicate function would be convenient enough, as I would just have to delete checklist elements according to my reorganization instead of (currently) having to manually clone the card and all information inside.

Until the clone functionality implemented in Trello itself, you can use the Trello Clone Chrome extension


Good news! The "copy/clone/ template boards, lists, cards, and checklists" card is in the 'Next Up' "In Progress" column on the public Trello development board, https://trello.com/c/LIqasVwP; please vote it up, work ought to start on it soon!

    This shipped several months ago, if you happen to be looking at this now.

You can duplicate a card by selecting "Copy" in the "Actions" section on any card. (see Trello Help)
