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.


Unfortunately there does not seem to be a shortcut for creating checklists. I have checked the Trello's keyboard shortcut list and tried a bit by myself. The most intuitive key for the task, c, is used for archiving.

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