Add hours to a task in a checklist of a card.

Elsemiek Gerritzen March 28, 2021

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know if there is a possibility to add hours to a task within an checklist in an card? For instance: we have a big client task, I make a card for that task. Within that big task we have subtasks. I want to give hours to that subtasks, so we know if we stay on track with the given hours to the client. Does anyone know if there is a power-up for this? I already know you can add persons to tasks from a checklist (I use the business Trello). 

Note: I am not searching for a tool to track my time per task. I want to give hours to task to see if we stay on track with the sold hours to my client.

Hello @Elsemiek Gerritzen 

If by 'task' you are referring to Checklist Items, then no, they do not have the capacity to track or store time, either started or elapsed; they have only a name, a due date and an assigned member.

My only suggestion would be to insert the time in the name of the checklist items, such as "Do this task in five hours - 05h", then export all the board data and create your own report / tool that parses the time from within the name and turns it into a number you can use for your purpose.

Hi David, 

Yes, bij tasks I mean checklist items. Shame there is no option for it yet. Thanks anyway for your reply and help.
