Is it possible to create a Checklist Template in Trello?

I'd like to be able to instantly add a checklist to each trello card - which I would ideally pre-create as templates. 

Is this possible?

Or are any kind of templates possible in Trello?

Thank you!

Hello, Hanna!

You can create template cards in Trello by simply making the card and stashing it somewhere for easy duplication. Then you can copy that card, and choose to copy over checklists and attachments. You can even hover over the card, hit CTRL+C, and then CTRL+V over the list you want to paste and the card will duplicate there!

As an example, I create "template" cards and stick them in the first list on my board, which I always reserve for board information. Then I can easily access them for duplication.

You can also create a card, and when you go to add a checklist, choose to copy a checklist from a card that already exists.

Hope this helps!

Thank you - this sounds really helpful - will try it out!
