How to move multiple trello cards to another list? Edited

Moving one card, all cards from a list or even a whole list is easy.

But every now and then I want to move from 3 to up to 30 cards from one list to another (on the same board, or to another board).

How can I do this?

If it's impossible: should I mail this question to feature-ideas@trello.com ?

Hey Ton

There's not a way to select individual cards to be moved, so that would be a feature request as you suggested.

However, there may be a workaround using labels and ButlerBot Automation.  Essentially, this could go as follows, using a red label named Move and a list named Move as an example:

command: when a red "move" label is added to a card, move the card to list "move"

Then, any time you add a red "move" label to a card, it will move to the list "move". Then, you can move the entire list "move" over to your new board. To easily assign the label to a card, you can use the keyboard shortcut number associated with that label (1-9). 

To add custom automation using Butlerbot, follow these steps:

1) Add Butlerbot to your board here: https://www.butlerfortrello.com/dashboard.html
-- A new list will be created titled "Butler"
2) Add a new card to the Butler list using the command mentioned above.  Once the command is accepted, you will see a green checkbox on that card, and then the automation will begin for every label added afterwards.

Thanks for the try, but with moving the cards individually takes less effort than labeling them and setting up the butler bot.

Yes - these basic feature requests and need to purchase Power Ups for basic functionality is super frustrating to use for small business - especially in touch C19 times...

agreed with Ailon & Darryl - if Trello's job is to move cards between lists, then moving a lot of cards is a pretty basic use case and should be handled both gracefully and without requiring additional tools.

Blows me away this isn't a quick feature. I just move the list next to the other and drag and drop.

The lack of core functionality here is infuriating. If anybody opens up a feature request, please share it in this thread so I can upvote it.
