How can I select multiple cards in Trello and move them to another board?

I frequently see people asking about how to select multiple cards at once in Trello. The typical use case is to move lots of cards from one board to another, or one list to another.

There is no "select multiple" option in Trello (because there is also not really any notion of "selecting" cards) but you can quite easily create a temporary list to grab a bunch of cards and then do something with them.

You can then move the entire list to another board and/or move all cards in that list to another list. Here is a quick video demonstration:


Thanks  @Iain Dooley  for the shortcut. i thought about it . but never use it

I like this idea, as it doesn't rely on an Power-Up!

For those who frequently need to manipulate multiple cards and don't mind Power-Ups, I typically direct them to the Bulk Actions Power-Up. Its user interface could use a little polishing, but it works.

I want to move up multiple cards. Or how can I see the newest cards on top. without moving them manually? > resolved. that was easy ;-) 

@Hannes S Hannes - how did you resolve it - did you add the power up - I'd much rather not add 'plugins' and have Trello add the obvious features themselves!

@Hannes S Yes, how DID you do it? It seems silly to me that we can select one card and drag it, but can't select multiples and drag them.
