Trello has numerous keyboard shortcuts.

Is there a keyboard shortcut for the "Add checklist..." action on a card?

Use case

  1. Create a new card: N
  2. Select the card: Arrow key
  3. Open the card: Enter
  4. Add checklist to the card: ???

In step 4, after opening the card,

  • adding a label would be L,
  • assigning a member would be A,
  • but how to add a checklist with the keyboard?


I haven't found any issues or open tasks for that on the Trello development board.

The minus key "-" can now be used to create a checklist when you are in a card.


You can now create checklists from within a card by using the - key. All keyboard shortcuts can be found here.


The Minus '-' sign adds a checklist to the card enter image description here
