Checklist questions


1) Is there a way to make new items entered into a checklist go to the top of the list instead of the bottom of the list?


2) Is there a way to hide or move items in the checklist that are checked off as done to the bottom or to hide them automatically.


Both of these features are present in Wunderlist and give it an advantage. In addition, Wunderlist has the filed for "add new item to list" at the top so you don't have to scroll to the bottom of a checklist in order to add a new item which is much more convenient.

Hi @Brian Miller if you hold your mouse over the checklist item you can drag it in the order you prefer (up or down in the list). Once you complete an item you can click on the "hide completed items" next to the name of checklist, or if you are on ipad you can swipe left on title of checklist for that option. I hope this helps.

Hi Brian, by default, Trello adds new items to the bottom of the list.

I just checked if Butler had an action that would allow to move new checklist items to the top (like the ButlerBot could), but unfortunately there is no such action.

It pretty much looks as if you have to move it manually.
