Is there a way to add a new card in all lists on the same board ?

@Mahmoud Magdy so to clarify you want something like:

When a card is added to list "One" copy the card to all other lists in the board

Does that sound right?

yes .. that will work for me too

BTW .. I already tried to make a "rule" for one of the lists to copy the new card in it to other lists in the same board automatically  but it worked with most of lists but not all of them !

@Mahmoud Magdy can you post a screenshot of the rule you already created and let me know the names of the lists it works for and the names of the lists it doesn't work for?

Starting from the yellow part it doesn't work


Note : All lists names is in Arabic

@Mahmoud Magdy I think what you're running into there is the limit on the total number of operations in a single command.

Quoting from this link:

"To protect our systems and prevent strain on Trello’s resources, we apply some limits such as a rate limit on the maximum number of command runs per minute, a limit on the number of cards a single command run will affect, a limit on the total number of actions and operations performed by a single command run, and others. We reserve the right to change these limits at any time without notice to improve the performance of the system."

You might consider instead running this listener:

in our BenkoBot platform:

It will loop through and copy a card created in "Origin List" to the top of all other lists on the board.

BenkoBot isn't a "no code" tool but it can be useful to do some of the more demanding commands that Butler can't be used for. You get 5,000 execution minutes for USD$10/month.

Here's one possible solution.... You can hover over a card and copy it with cmd/ctrl + C and then hover over a list and paste with cmd/ctrl + V. "Pasting" will create a copy of the card in the new list.

Here's a video of me demonstrating this, though to be fair, keyboard gestures are not easy to see in a screen recording. Hope this helps! 

Nice tip Andrea .. I didn't knew that i can copy and paste a card by just hover over it

It will be helpful a lot but in this case i have more than +50 lists in the same board so it will be hard to do that .

Hi @Mahmoud Magdy ,

Thanks for posting and welcome to community.

Are you familiar with power ups? If yes, could you please check this power up - ?

There is a Trello article on mirroring -

Could you please accept the answer if it solves your query else respond and allow others to share input.

Stay safe and healthy.



Hi .. thanks for help but unfortunately it is not what i am looking for

Mirror can't copy a card in the same board and it also copy to just one list
