Counting Trello cards

Hi, Is there an easy way to have a count of the number of cards in each list.  I'd like to display this in the list heading if possible - or in a card placed at the top of this list.  Would be great to havethat automatically updated when a ne wcard is created by could also be ok if we had to manually generate somehow.

Hi Sally,

 

This is not natively possible in Trello, but Milt's workaround is a good one. Activating any filter (including with the 'Q' shortcut key) will temporarily show you a count of all cards in each list, but this isn't persistent and won't remain there permanently.

 

For that, you'd need to add a third-party Chrome extension, such as this one: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/original-card-counter-for/ggamggchfpnmhmkeicjgpedgjcllcefp?hl=en

 

These are built and maintained by third parties, but can add a great deal of functionality to Trello!

I'm new, as well. Learned this only today:

In the search field, enter an asterisk (*).
