How do I sort a list on Trello by most recent update to a card?

Sheri Tate July 25, 2022

Hi - I'm looking to have a Trello list sort daily in ascending order with cards that were updated most recently at the top.  I do not see that particular sort option in the drop-down which includes due date, age, start date, etc.

Hi Sheri, thanks for getting in touch!

Rafael here from Trello Support, I hope you're doing okay!

In order to make this happen, you need to store this information in a custom field when the card was last updated in order to be able to make an Automation that sorts using this information.

A workaround for this (and I think it gives you more options) would be using Card Aging Power-Up. You can take a look here:

I hope this information helps!

I would also love to see a default sort option that allows cards in a list to sort by last modified. I'm not keen on adopting these other two options. Specifically I would only want to sort the list itself, not all the lists on the board.

Hi @Sheri Tate

Is there any field storing the last updated date information on your cards?
