How to automatically count amount of cards? In some list, or in the board.


Click on show menu on the right side of the board if its not visible.

From the Menu option select Search Cards.

In the text box type * to "filter by everything".

All cards will remain visible and you'll also get card counts at the top of each list.


This only works in the web version of Trello.

    Nice tip. If you're using the Android app, by the way, you have to type @ or # instead, for the count to show up. – Venryx Feb 20 '17 at 7:10

    Note that this method hides all cards as a result, so if your goal is to see cards AND the counters simultaneously, see other answers. – John G Hohengarten Aug 18 '17 at 17:32
  • If you are trying this and it's not showing the card count, you can also just type * to "filter by everything". All cards will remain visible, but you'll get card counts at the top of each list. – Myles Jan 30 '18 at 14:17
  • Sort it out Trello. When your users need to ask on a QA site how to view basic information you've messed up. I think most (I certainly did) expect to find this on the 3-dot menu attached to each list. – Damien Roche Nov 22 '19 at 9:56
  • Hello I am using this chrome extension. It's very nice. chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cardcounter-for-trello-wi/… – Henrique Brugugnoli Feb 22 at 18:00

If you use Chrome, there is an extension called CardCounter

It does the job but i'm looking for something nicer.

I am using this extension for Chrome: CardCounter For Trello.

This extension shows me the total cards that I have in my board.

All you have to do is keep the filter "*" on.

If you use the List Limits extension, it will count them for you. You have to add a maximum limit of cards the list can have, and it will show as ACTUAL_NUMBER / MAX
