How do I create a card on the top of the list without Butler?

How do I create a card on the top of the list -- without Butler?

I am using one of the lists as "my TODO" list.  I want to appear the newest card on top of the list. If it is possible, it will be very helpful so I can use it as todo-stack, not todo-queue. (Always doing older tasks taking time to remember about the task...)

How can I set the "default position for the new card added" to the top of the list, instead of the bottom?

As far as I know, there is two way to add a card on the top.
1. Use the Butler to move the newly created card to the top.
 -- I don't want to consume the automation counter on every card created, it will be run out on the first week of every month.
2. command ^1 to create a card on the top of the list
 -- It is OK with the desktop app but doesn't work with the mobile app. (Unfortunately, I am almost always AFK when I need to add TODO, I have two choices then -- Add it and move it to the top manually; otherwise add it on my desktop later. First one is too troublesome, Second one is, you know, my brain is not smart enough to remember the task, that's why we use tools like Trello)

Hi Kohta,

Thanks for reaching out!

On web, you can add a card to the top of the list by either double-clicking the space in between cards or by clicking on the 3 dot menu and specifying the card position there:

That said, these options aren't available in our mobile apps, so you would either need to create the card then drag the card to the top, or set up a Butler command.

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

All the best,

The Trello Team
