Card Covers and Card Dividers

I love the new feature of card covers and card dividers using ---! 

I would like to use this for cards in lists that describe how to use the list.  I want it to be the first card in the list but there is no way to pin the card to the top of the list.  I often sort my cards by due date and I am constantly moving this card to the top.  

Question. Has anyone found a way to pin card to the top of the list?  Or is this a feature that Trello plans to release at some point in the future?

Hi @Beth Maxwell ,

Welcome to the community!

There are two workaround options if you don't want to use the Chrome extension. Just a word about this being a workaround that I use and works for me. I don't know if this fits everyone's needs, but works for me. Also, this is just a tip, it's not an exact "how-to"; no exact step-by-step. Just the big picture. If you need a step-by-step...ask. 


1) Enable Butler 

-> set to run automatically, such as when a card is added, by date, or by date and time

--> under "sorting" in Butler, determine how you want to "sort" (age of card, due date, label, etc)

---> click save


2) Enable Butler & Custom Fields (my favorite way)

-> set up the custom field (I set a checkbox that's called "details" or "pin" or whatever you want. You could call it "George" for all it matters). The checkbox custom field is on every card, so I can have multiple pinned if I want. 

--> set Butler to run automatically, such as when a card is added (I set it to run when a card is added so that whenever a card is added Butler automatically re-sorts to ensure the checkbox card is first

---> under "sorting" in Butler, select "sort the list by custom field", select your custom field, how you want it sorted (ascending or descending), click Add, and then save


The second workaround is great because you can sort according to the custom field and then sort again by another custom field or label or whatever. I have a few cards pinned on some lists and not others. With this, you can create a custom field sorting list that has multiple ascending "pinned" cards that always remain at the top.

This is good to know!! I see people asking about this periodically and didn't know there was a way to do this, but it makes sense! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you. I will try them both to see which is best.  I am hoping that Trello will do this natively in the future .
