What is the quickest way to add a new trello card to the top of a list?

Clicking add to card on the bottom and dragging to the top seems a bit slow

    I wish there was a way to add a card to the top on the iOS Trello App. – Matthew Lock Aug 14 '17 at 4:06

Click the list menu (icon appears on hover near the list title) and click "Add Card", which will open the add card dialog at the top instead of the bottom of the list.

You can hover over the top card in a list and press N

That will cause the card to go in in the #2 slot.

    Not on mobile though :( – Craig Ringer Dec 17 '18 at 1:36

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.

    Don't think that one works on mobile either. Drat. – Craig Ringer Dec 17 '18 at 1:36

    this is a nice hidden feature. you can also type in bottom and numbers to move to other positions. – gMale May 24 '19 at 22:47

The problem seems to be solved by adding "butlerbot" to your board, see detailed description below on how to do it:

  • Hi Hannes, could you add a brief summary of what's at the link in the body of your answer, please. I appreciate that you've mentioned the overall solution to the problem, but if the link goes dead, that minimal information is all anyone will have to refer to. – jonsca Mar 26 '19 at 1:23
  • @jonsca's case in point, butlerbot was acquired by trello and that link above isn't very helpful. The acquisition announcement suggests these butlerbot features will have tighter integration, later. Personally, I think butlerbot is overkill and prefer the simpler solutions mentioned in other answers. – gMale May 24 '19 at 22:56

On mobile app you can use move card functionality.

Click card and then three dots on the top right corner. From there choose "move card". This opens a dialog where you can enter a new position.

This way much easier than dragging if the list is long. Hope this helps!
