Is there a way to show the checklist on the Trello board?


I'd love to have the checklist and/or details show up in the card on the board and not be hidden. Is this possible?

There isn't a vanilla Trello solution to this, but there are Chrome Extensions out there that can do this:

Thanks for sharing. Useful option. Likes :)

Yusss! Now I'm a trello user. 


Thx so much for posting that!

Is everyone else getting the full checklist? I only see the top item on the list on the cards.

I did find the option for the full checklist, btw. This makes trello tremendously useful.

Hi Tim, please can you show how you managed to get full checklist displayed?


Just click here.

Like Tim Boyle likes this Here is a tutorial it's right in front of your eyes though dificult to notice at first glance.

Also looking for this solution. Might be a make-or-break feature for using Trello! Please include this as a feature or power up.

Hey Jennifer

It's not actually possible to have the checklist show on the front of the card (what you see when looking at the board), only on the card back (what you see when you click a card). 

This would be a good suggestion to submit to Trello at for future consideration. 

Great, thank you. I will suggest to the Trello team.

Is there somewhere we can go to upvote Jennifer's suggestion?

We added Power-Up to display checklist at the front of the card.

If you have any questions please let us know, Thanks.

Hi - I have a request:

We have multiple users and multiple boards. When we go into subscribe, it only lets us suscribe per member (for unlimited boards), or per board (for unlimited members.)

This is too time consuming to go to each board or each user.

Can you add a feature to subscribe to the entire Trello Workspace and enable this for each user & each board?

Thanks in advance,

Hi @Don Nohavec , 

Thank you for your message.
Could you email us at: we can set it up.


Why your power up needs access to the trello board? Your powerup wants a lot of information for using it. I would like to use it but if t requires all these insight I'm not confogrtable.

Hi @Patrick Garcia ,

Thank you for your message.

We would like to request less permissions, unfortunately there is no option in Trello  to do this at the moment. Power-Up is requesting minimum permission available from Trello to access checklist.

We don't see any of the user data, Power-Up runs in the user browser and reads data directly from Trello to display them on the card. We can share more technical details, please drop us a line at


Aaaaand break. RIP trello.


We will use sth else.

Did you find something suitable?

This is a deal breaker for me to switch over full time from MS Planner. Just asked the same question before I found this thread. This would be a HUGE bonus

There is no chrome extension as MS Teams app.
