Filter/show all cards with an alert/notification

I was wondering if anyone knows of a way that I can apply a filter (or maybe a Chrome extension) that will just show me the cards on the board which have an unseen alert/notification, like attached.

I have a few boards for projects with a lot of cards and labels which are red - which makes it very hard to see which ones have notifications and which don't.

Hi All,  I really needed an extension which just filtered the cards with unread notifications on my Trello boards.... So I built it myself. 

Here's the link to the extension if anyone is interested:

It's my first Chrome extension, so if you find it useful please leave a rating :)

Hi @Mitchell Page 

On any board, you can go to the top right next to your avatar, where the red bell will show again, and it'll give you a list of all the unread notifications you have across all your boards.

I don't know if this is helpful or what you're wanting, so please, let me know if it's not and we'll try again!

Hi Esme,  yes I know about this feature.  I've been using Trello since 2012 :)

But I have so many projects/boards and therefore this notifications feed is pretty overwhelming and useless for me to find just the notifications for the current board I am in.

Hi Mitchell, 

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

There's a Chrome extension called Notifier for Trello that might be what you need?


Not exactly (it doesn't allow filter by board). But closer than what Trello currently offers. Thanks

@Mitchell Page you might also like my product BenkoBoard which, in addition to letting you use Trello as a Gmail client, does the following for notifications:

1) Unwatches any card you're added to. This means that, unless otherwise specified, you'll only be notified about being added to a card, mentioned in a comment and removed from a card, drastically reducing the total of number of "noisy" notifications

2) When you're added to a card, creates a linked copy of that card in your BenkoBoard inbox, so you can clearly see in one spot all cards you're added to similar to the Trello Cards view, but with the ability to move the cards around

3) When you're mentioned in a comment, creates a link card in your BenkoBoard inbox with the comment text, similar to Trello's notifications view but with the ability to move the cards around

So your BenkoBoard becomes your "one board to rule them all" so you can easily get across everything you've been notified on and reprioritise quickly to get to your highest value work.

It's currently not verified by Google, so if you want to set it up probably best for me to walk you through it :)
