How to Sort lists numerically in Trello

I have a board with columns that have sometimes 300-500 cards. We identify each card by a number from 1-500. When we try to sort alphabetically the results are the following:

1, 10, 100, 2, 20, 200

what we would like to do is number them

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

is there a power up available? or a way we should code each card?

I am sorry if this has been brought up before.

@Oscar_Rodriguez there's no numeric sort option natively, but this Trellinator function would sort lists numerically by title when a card is moved into a list:

thank you for your help but i would not even know were to start

I recently had a similar situation with sorting in Confluence. I ended up numbering my steps 01, 02, 03, 04, 05 and so on to get them to sort correctly.

Not sure how high your numbers go, but you might renumber a few cards with a number format such as 001, 002, 003, and then 019, 020, 021, 022 and so on and see if that makes a difference.

we have over 1000's of cards 

i dont understand why they cant make a simple script or power to do it numerically 

 

and using the Trellinator above, i would not know were to start with all this coding.
