Disable label suggestions


is it possible to disable label suggestions? The feature does nothing more than add another list of labels, which makes it confusing to use especially once you get your label positions into muscle memory and end up clicking on the wrong thing. Also, it can be a bit difficult to notice the "suggested" and "labels" headers on smaller screens, making the label lists even more confusing. Especially if you are in a hurry and trying to get things done. Aka the main reason to use Trello in the first place. It might be handy to see suggestions if you have dozens upon dozens of labels, but if you have around 10 labels, the suggestions are completely pointless.

Hi folks,

I have got a reply from support just moments ago. They cannot remove users from testing features, but suggestions are now a core feature. That also means it can be disabled in the Trello account settings. Here is the screencap


Thanks. Would be nice if I didn't have to spend 5 minutes googling how to do that 😂

Where do you see label suggestions? When I add a card and click labels, I just see my open list of labels I've created.... no specific suggestions.

I see it exactly where you described. Click on the card, click on labels and there it is. Here is a screencap of what I see.

Oh interesting - this must be a new feature they are beta testing because I definitely don't see that on my cards. Feel free to email and they can probably remove you from that test.

perfect. I will give that a go. Thank you. Will let you know how I get on. By the way, the suggestions seem to appear only in the Trello desktop app. They don't appear in the browser version of Trello. Using browser access might seem like an obvious workaround, but unfortunately it's not in my case for few specific reasons.

Ah interesting! Good to know. I don't use the Desktop App often, so that's probably why I haven't seen it. Support should be able to help you out!


If you found this answer helpful, would you mind accepting it so others in the community know it's been addressed? Thanks!

Sure thing. I will flag it as answered based on the response I get from the support team.

@Martin S I don't mind the suggestions, but they hide when you start typing something which is a faster way to apply a label anyway, ie. hit the "L" key, type the first letter of the label name, hit enter
