Default board for new card widget in Android app

I recently switched to a new phone. I placed the widget to create a new card on my start screen. But every time I use the widget it asks me again for the board and the column to place the new card in.

On my old phone I had this widget as well and I'm pretty sure this old widget remembered the selection of the board and the column. So every time I opened the widget the last used board and column were already selected.

Am I missing something or is "not remembering" the correct behaviour?

Hi @Marius  and @Jiri Skuhrovec,

Thanks for reaching out! Sorry for the trouble.

We've passed this onto our team, and they'll investigate further.

While I don't have an ETA on when a fix for the issue will be pushed, as soon as one is available, we will deploy it.

If there's anything we can help you with or if you have any other concerns, please let us know and we’d be happy to help.

All the best,

The Trello Team

Same here, old Phone (Android 10) remembers and new phone (Android 11) does not. Same behaviour within the app if you add card with plus sign. So no really quick add anymore, please fix it!

Same issue here (also Android).

This is super annoying. It used to be my default way of quickly taking notes (which I'd organize later). It was a 1-step process, which has now become too cumbersome to be useful. I'd really appreciate a quick fix.

Same here!

Would love to get my clicks down form 3 to 2 to creat a new card, THanks for an awesome app!

Same here.

Went back to my Samsung A71 (Android 11 OneUI 3.1) after a few months of using an iPhone and have just encountered the bug.

It was fine in August so the bug must've been introduced this autumn.

Hi everyone (& @BonarBeavis@Jiri Skuhrovec),

Thanks for your patience here!

A fix for this issue should be available in version 2021.17 of the Android app. You may be able to access this version earlier via the beta program:

Please let us know if you have any other questions, and we'll be happy to help.

All the best,

I just tried the beta version and it looks like this does indeed fix the issue. Thank you!

Jesus, this is absolutly critical. Friction in my neocortex is not acceptable.

Same issue here. This is nasty.
