How to track card recycling frequency and durations

Peter Cranston May 19, 2023

Hi Folks,

I am using a Trello KANBAN to manage Engineering Non conformances. The majority of cards flow through the board in one pass however we have occasions when a card will recycle to an earlier part in the process potentially a number of times.

Would appreciate any guidance on how to track frequency of recycling and overall duration spent in recycling.

I also use NAVE Analytics and will ask Sonya if it can be done in NAVE.

Many thanks,

Peter C.

Hi Peter,

Card Time In List for Trello shows a cumulative duration of each time the card has been on a list. -It will add up all previous durations.

Hi Peter,

I don't know of anyone showing cards being recycled. But Nave and others will show time to complete or Cycle/Lead time. That is backwards looking though, if you want to see how long cards are taking to complete while they are still in process you could look at Corrello which has the WIP age chart and can highlight cards spending too long in progress. That should pick up slow cards whether they have been recycled or not :) Not exacly what you are looking for but wanted to mention it. 


Just thinking out loud a little, maybe there is something you could do with an automation to increment a counter in a custom field when cards hit a certain list/lists to you can see if a card has been moved to an 'in progress' list multiple times?

Hope that helps,

Hi Robin,

thanks for the suggestions. I will try out the automation that you suggest. 

In addition Sonya at NAVE has advised that they are now looking to add this as a future feature.


Thanks Again,

Peter C.
