My company's main Trello board has a lot of different columns for different stages of our development process. I'd like to pin a card to the top of each list to describe when a card should be moved there.
Is there power-up that allows me to pin / stick an instructions card to the top of a list, so that it won't accidentally be moved down?
I've looked at the Readme power-up, but that only allows one readme for a whole board.
There are two work around options if you don't want to use the Chrome extension. Just a word about this being a work around that I use and works for me. I don't know if this fits everyone's needs, but works for me. Also, this is just a tip, it's not an exact "how to"; no exact step-by-step. Just the big picture. If you need step-by-step...ask.
1) Enable Butler
-> set to run automatically, such as when a card is added, by date, or by date and time
--> under "sorting" in Butler, determine how you want to "sort" (age of card, due date, label, etc)
---> click save
2) Enable Butler & Custom Fields (my favorite way)
-> set up custom field (I set a checkbox that's called "details" or "pin" or whatever you want. You could call it "George" for all it matters). The checkbox custom field is on every card, so I can have multiple pinned if I want.
--> set Butler to run automatically, such as when a card is added (I set it to run when a card is added so that whenever a card is added Butler automatically re-sorts to ensure the checkbox card is first
---> under "sorting" in Butler, select "sort the list by custom field", select your custom field, how you want it sorted (ascending or descending), click add, and then save
The second work around is great because you can sort according to the custom field and then sort again by another custom field or label or whatever. I have a few cards pinned on some lists and not others. With this you can create a custom field sorting list that has multiple ascending "pinned" cards that always remain at the top.
There is a part about agile project management within the most recent newsletter. Trello explains there, how a board can be used for agile projects.
I've only found this blog in German, so not sure whether it's also available in English.
However, I've commented this blog and referred to this feature request as I believe that making a card sticky might be also / especially a benefit for agile projects.
I did nearly the same of renot2020: I created a grey label called "PINNED CARD" and gave it only to the cards that I wanted to keep on top of the list, and then built a Butler's rule that sorts the cards by descending label order, putting in the label list of the order just the grey "PINNED CARD" label.
I am currently checking if this works, will write here if it's ok.
You might use Butler to automation it, what i dod, give all definition board a label called Definition, then setup a schedule activity thru calendar, all the cards on this list would be sorted by labels, Definition, High Priority, Middle Priority, Low Priority, then sorted by Due Dates at 1am every morning, so when the team back to work, all those back to order again even during day time, members move cards around...
