Exporting card with full checklists

I need to export cards into anything other than that useless json (excel, pdf or something). But I also need the complete checklists with all of their items. How can I do that? Can, for example, the Board Export power-up do this? Or do you guys have a better solution?

I work for a dental technician lab and we track almost every task we do for any given job on individual cards and their checklists and we want the cards exported for an invoice.


Thank you for your help!

@david b here is an example Trellinator function I wrote for someone this morning to export some details to a spreadsheet in Google Sheets:

If you had, for example, a Google Doc template for your invoice, with some placeholder content, then it wouldn't be too different to do the text replacement then save/send that as a PDF document.

Hi @david b,

The Board Export Power-UP can export most board and card items for you into various formats including CSV, Excel, PFD, jpeg.

However it does not currently support checklists. This feature is being worked on currently, and we hope to have it available soon.

I will try to post back here when it has been released to update you.



Hi @david b ,

As promised, the Board Export Power-Up now supports the exporting of checklists and advanced checklists (checklist due dates and assigned members) to excel, csv, and PDF.

We wrote up some more info about it in this blog.

Hope it helps! Any feedback would be very welcome.


Unfortunately, Board Export doesn't seem to separate each item in an Advanced Checklist (lumps all items into one field in Excel). Is there a way to do do this? 

Hi @Maria Puglisi 

There is a way to do this :)  

You just need to open the "Customisation" section on the left hand menu (click on the Board Export button at the top of your board to open this view)

Then you can turn this option on to separate Checklists out into individual cells.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have more questions (or ask our Support team via this link - they will probably be faster to reply!)

Thank you, Dan.  I did set up the Customization, however the Export to Excel doesn't separate the individual tasks within the checklist. The all end up in the same cell. See my screenshot.

I had to cut and paste each checklist item into its own cell. Was hoping this was an export option. 

I will also use the Support link you provided. Appreciate the response!
