Is there a way to expand cards to show their description?

I use Trello for my University projects and I wanted to know if it was possible to expand cards to show their description.

It would be useful for me if I could see the description without clicking on each card. I often take screenshots of my boards to include in my coursework and having the description displayed would allow me to better show the progression of the board over time.

Hi Dean!


There is not currently a way to expand the description without opening up the card back.

I'd be glad to let our team know about your interest in this change though!

I'm looking for this expand function as well, so that I can view all of the descriptions at once..

Just looking at the header of the card doesn't give me enough information.

Please implement this feature! The title doesn't show enough information at a glance.

Yeah i second that. Also this  was asked in september 2018, did this ever get addressed?

Please implement this option. Without it, I will not use Trello. Otherwise, it is fantastic.

Agree! This would be great to have! So that you are able to see immediately content and not to have to open it.

I second the motion

This seems like a huge win for very little effort, please do find a way to implement this  much-needed feature!
