Can we bulk assign cards to a member's replacement?

When we delete a member from a workspace then deactivate them too is there a way that we can bulk assign their cards to their replacement.


As well, what will happen to any boards that they are the sole member and admin for?


Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @Mark Baker 👋

Welcome to the Community! Let's tackle your questions...

  1. There are ways to bulk change a number of things on Trello, I would suggest visiting the Trello Power-Up store - I would suggest checking out Bulk Actions. If this doesn't offer what you need there are other ways to bulk change for example Multiselect for Trello via the Chrome Store (free).
  2. With their sole boards this will depend on the Trello plan you are on. If you are on Business Class there will be a super administrator attached to the account in your organisation who will be able to access these boards and remove the member/reassign boards. Alternatively you could ask for them to make you an admin on these boards as part of the handover prior to them leaving.

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions then ask away 😃

All the best,


Thanks Laura - we are business class and turning into power users as we build out our remote teams.  I really appreciate you assistance on this!

No worries at all Mark, happy to help 😃 If that's the case the main administrator of the account should have no problem accessing the employees boards after they leave.
