Priority labeling on cards

My team has been working on a project for enough time now that we're in the thick of it and our Trello Board can sometimes seem like a maze! We're using stickers for major things but are looking for ways to spotlight the more important tasks that need to get done each day. We talked about using labels but don't want to have to go into each card every time as we often just look at the board as a whole and decide what's most important on each of the lists to work on each day and try to move those cards to the top of the list. I'm considering making custom stickers with "P1" for "Priority 1" and so on to help make these cards more noticeable but we're still wondering how to make them really jump out and grab our attention to help keep us organized and on track. What are some ways that your team prioritizes cards in a project with lots of things that need to get done?

@Anna Miller try using the keyboard shortcut "l" (lower case L not upper case i) to add labels without opening the cards. Hover over a card, hit L, start typing a label name and hit enter to add it, then esc to close the label menu. You can also navigate to the next card using the keyboard:

Labels are a good prioritisation tool because you can filter the board by label to see all cards of a given priority, but you can't filter a board by sticker:

Great! Thanks for sharing Iain! That is a shortcut that I was not aware of.
