Hi Janelle,

 

Where are you seeing your boards and teams organized by creation date?

 

On the your Trello homepage that you see after logging in, you should be seeing your teams organizaed alphabetically, and boards alphabetically within those teams. At this time, it's not possible to change that.

 

What you can do, though, is star boards to bring them up to the very top "Starred" section that sits above your "Personal Boards" section. It's also possible to drag and reorder boards in your Starred Boards section: http://help.trello.com/article/965-starring-a-board

 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

I'm curious (1) why there's no feature to reorganize my boards (i.e., I'd like to reorder them by color, to keep my 1-on-1 meeting boards grouped by team - seems like a no-brainer) and (2) if there are plans to integrate that functionality in the future (and, if so, when)?  Thanks.

Hi Jason,

 

Right now, there aren't plans to allow all boards to be reorganized.

 

Why there's no feature like that? Because Trello is built on the concept of a shared perspective, we don't typically build a lot of features that allow you to view something about your boards in a way that's different from other people. For that reason, boards in the regular Boards list are always alphabetical.

 

Starring a board is something that's personal to you and doesn't impact any one else's display, and because it's generally a small amount of boards, those can be re-organized to help you keep your most frequently used boards easily and quickly accessible.

Hi Michael,

I am experiencing the same problem. It's really inconvenient. 

While I see your point in sharing the boards, why don't you keep this alphabetical order  rule only for Work Boards. As there is a separate area for Personal boards, a user should be able to re-organize it as he/she wish.

 

Or you could think of a feature like Master Board Owner where only the team lead who is primarily in charge of creating and sharing new boards is able to re-organize his/her organization's Work Boards as there is prioritization of projects and work. you know. I truly believe this will be a valuable feature and Trello's team will soon help companies organize their projects even better!

Cheers,
Villy

Hi Michael,

 

I would like to be able to organise both my teams and boards. If you unlock this feature you will make the product far more accessible and usable to people for all aspects of their life. This would expand the market for the product to individuals which would be a great land and expand distribution strategy for you because many of those people would inevitably then use in their working life. Please can you explore sorting features?

Hallow. You can reorder all your boards by adding numbers in front of title. YW

I'm on board with this. I'm a member of multiple teams and I have quite a few personal boards too.

I would like be able to organize boards. For example, when I am finished working with a client and their team, I world like to drag their team board to the bottom of my list.

I have a client whose name starts with an "A" and it is kind of cumbersome to always see her board at the top of my list when I am not currently doing work with her.

I have another client, a nonprofit, whose name starts with a "C" and I would like them to be on the top of my list instead of scrolling down and being distracted by non active clients.

I know we can star, but that's just another step we need to take. Please look into a drag and drop organization option. Thank you Trello!

Hi @Michael Labrecque-Jessen ,

Could you please ping the PM responsible for such a feature? The reason you gave, one dashboard for several people, does not stand. As you use logins, you can very well store in the account the preferred order of a user without impacting anyone else.

Multiple solutions exist, the feature is fairly simple, and there is a lot of request for it. It would be nice from Trello to consider it seriously.
