Because I have not found another method, I commonly use Trello checklists as collapsable ordered lists. In order to collapse a checklist, all items must be checked as completed, which changes all item text to strikethrough formatting. This is all wonderful for checklists, but makes ordered lists harder to read, meaning every item in the checklist is typically deselected for viewing and then reselected afterward.
Is it possible to add a checklist function to the checklist icon which would select or deselect all items in the checklist (depending on the selection state)? This would be immensely useful.
If this is not possible, would it be possible to create a secondary option to allow users to collapse entire checklists regardless of completion status?
I was having the same problem. This Chrome extension solved my problem https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/confluence-cloud-uncheck/mndfdglbjiklkaadbpbndpegplbacohb/related
It's not the best solution, but...
Our staff has been looking for a way to utilize the checklists for more routine tasks. Every Monday-Friday there's a certain list that has to be accomplished for each day and with interuptions and calls, it can be hard to refocus every 10 minutes to where you left off. Each day has it's set list. Each week our staff has to uncheck each item on a daily card "start over". We tried the repeater power up and while it does create a new card that has items unchecked, it doesn't delete the old cards. So the clean up time by deleting old cards takes just as much time. I think a select all toggle to select the check list items would save a bit more time. We are new to trello but love it so far. I even use it at home for taking care of an elderly parent to track medical care. If there is an easier way to help with weekly tasks, we'd love to hear about it. Thank you!
You can also have a card reset all checklists when moved into a particular column. So I have cards sent back to the to do column every day at midnight and automatically resets the checklists.
After six years, yes, please create checklist check/uncheck all button. Especially annoying for mobile users which cannot use browser extensions and scripting.
My solution to this problem is 2 steps: (1) set all checkboxes in the task list to "checked", (2) remove all the checkboxes marked "checked". Please see https://www.screencast.com/t/7MTxrrRuuV7
As you can see from the screenshot, I have added an html macro to my page, and inside the macro is the code, which I will share below so you don't have to type:
Hello @Ryder Wishart were you able to use this macro?
I changed this to use it with the click() like you said:
<a id="addAllcbx" href="#">Reset checkboxes</a>
$( "ul.inline-task-list" ).find( "li.checked" ).click();
But nothing happens on the page. And the developer tools are not helpful, no error message is shown.
You can create a custom button for checking all and/or unchecking all. Go to Automations>Custom Buttons>Card Buttons
Click Create Button: choose your icon, name your button, and click enabled by default if you want it to show up on all your cards
Click Add Action
Scroll down to the option 3rd from the bottom (at the time of this post) which says:
Check all the items in checklist checklist name on card
You can choose check or uncheck, you can select a specific checklist or you can apply the action to all the checklists on the card.
