How do I share a link to a specific list within a board?

I have a board that has several lists. I want to start an online conversation with a colleague that is focused on cards within a specific list. How do I provide them a hyperlink to that list?

Gerrie, while not exactly what you want, I do have a suggestion. I too wanted to link to a specific list. I have a board that has a list for each project, and the first list is an index. It's where I start things before moving them to other boards to work on. I wanted to use the index list cards to jump to the list for each year of the project. Here's what I came up with.

Since you can link to a card, you can link to the first card in the list you want to go to. That way when you click on that from elsewhere, it will open that card thereby taking you to the list you want to view. I create a reference card for each list as the first card (with ideas and research), so when I want to link to a list I simply link to that reference card.

I hope that helps! It's working very well for me.

This is a good workaround, ty for sharing... still doesn't make sense why the actual feature not yet available though so hopefully we'll get an update from the Taco team soon.

Hi Gerrie,

Although you can link to a specific card or board, right now there isn't a way to link to a list in isolation. I'll let our team know that's something you'd be interested in. In the meantime, we'd suggest sending a link to the board instead.

I really hope you can implement this feature. I have all my clients into ONE board, but separate lists. It would be awesome if you could share the specific list to each client.

This is a critical gap in Trello's functionality.  Please give lists a unique url!

4 years in and this basic functionality is still unavailable? 

Also, I've just shared a link to a card and it didn't work without giving the individual access to the entire board. 

So it looks like one can share entire board but not an individual list or card within a list.

This is an obvious feature. Would love to know where it is in the queue, if it is at all.

Also needing this feature. Wonder why it hasn't yet been addressed? Is there some kind of technical hurdle?

I am also wondering why this hasn't been addressed.  Seems  basic and  tremendously useful feature to implement.  I understand the workaround and appreciate that, but really confusing how this capability is missing from Trello after this many years.  What am I missing?
