Is it possible to count occurrences within Trello

Hi, I have set up a board within Trello to enable someone to request changes to a plan. A change to plan is to be requested in the form of a card. The card is reviewed by placing into the under review list. Once reviewed it will be moved onto Request Accepted or Request Rejected. I would like to be able to report on the number of occurrences. For example, how many requests to change have been recorded, how many have been accepted, how many rejected etc. Would there be a way to do this? I would like to report on this without having to keep a seperate spreadsheet. Thank you in advance for any support.

Try the Dashcard Power Up. 

Hi, thank you, that works great. One thing I do notice with it is that it counts the cards live in the list, so if a card moves then the count drops and increases in the new list. This is fine and working very well, however would there be a way to keep a count so it increases when entering a list but doesn't decrease when moving. I need this to be able to monitor the ongoing activity or cumulative number of entries over time in a list. Thanks for the help, Dashcards is very good, didn't know it existed.

The short answer is "Yes" but I am not aware of any COTS solution. All the actions on the board is kept so if you can have someone work with the data you will be able to tabulate what you need. Most people are interested in the time spent on the list and there are standard solutions for those.  Perhaps someone else might know and will answer your query
