Is it possible to make a checklist the default on all new cards?

Every card I create needs a checklist with one item (the same item).  Is it possible to make that one item checklist active by default on every new card?

Alternatively, is there a way to add a yes/no checkbox as a default somewhere on the card?

Hi Jen

You can create a new card (let's title it Template Card', but you use what you want) with the checklist you want on it (plus any other attributes you'd like to repeat on it, labels etc). Then you can select 'Make Template option from the Action menu on that card. (I think you could do that with an existing card at any time as well, but I find it good to add recognisably titled Template cards for different purposes)

Once completed, it saves with a little symbol on it indicating it's a Template card. When you want to make a new card on a list, instead of clicking 'Add another card' at the bottom of the list, select the little symbol opposite.

That'll give you all the template cards you have set to choose from, as the starting point for a completely new card but you can edit it, title and descriptions etc, as you need from there once it's created and opened.

Hope that helps.


That is very helpful, thank you so much!

Actually, one more related it possible to set a default on the template for a due date?  For example, "two weeks from today" as the default.
