How to show report Lists in the same order as shown on the Card

My Trello report seems to show Lists in a random order - I have them arranged on my Cards in a specific order that'd I'd like replicated on the report.  For example, on my Card I have 3 lists in the following order:

The report shows these in this order:

I have other lists that also show in a random order and each one is different - they are not all shown the same way (i.e. reversed).

I would like my reports to shown the Lists in the same order as they appear on the Card.

Hi @j_em_doubleu ! When you say "I have 3 lists in a card" are you referring to checklists? Also, assuming you're using Butler reports? When I pull a report including checklists, it shows in the same order as shown in the card. Are you able to share the butler command you're using?

Hi Hannah.  Yes, they are Checklists and yes using Butler to generate reports.

@j_em_doubleu Are you able to share the command you've created?

It is just made up of Butler commands, basically trying to show all incomplete checklist items.

The report itself is ok, although does show all checklist items, not just incomplete - the completed items are shown with a 'strikethough'.

Hi @j_em_doubleu 

It sounds like you're using the Butler/Automation reporting built in to Trello? There aren’t many ways to customize the way the data is shown in there, sadly.

You could look at 3rd party reporting tools, we have written up all the most popular ones here Or just check out Blue Cat Reports which is a highly customizable reporting tool that should help with this and more: You can sign up for a trial and see if it might solve your issue and even try out more reporting options.
