Is there a way to have more than one list per column?


In Trello, is there a way to have a column with two lists? I have a user who has two lists that are kind of short and they would want to have them show in the same column. They have created a lot of lists and as a result, they have to scroll back and forth a lot and they find this not convenient.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thank you

You might want to look at using labels to categorize the cards in the list. So instead of adding a new list to categorize the cards, you create a new label. 

In this case, instead of having a list for "Client A Tasks", "Client B Tasks", and so on, you just have one main tasks list categorized by label.

Now, if you just want to see cards relating to Client A, you can then filter your board on that label.

Another way is using card covers to break out your lists like so:
