Limits to adding cards to a list?

I am new to Trello (yesterday) and am creating a board for a project. I have created a list titled "Stakeholders", but once I reached 14 cards on that list, I am unable to add another card. If I try to add a card to the Stakeholders list, it automatically pops up on my "Meetings" list. I have approximately 50 stakeholders to add - HELP!

I can't find a notification anywhere that I have reached some sort of limit. 

Thank you!

Hi @Kimberly Gordon sorry to hear this is happening to you. There is no limit to the number of cards on a Trello list, or at least it is not capped at 14 as I have a few lists with over 50 cards. What browser are you using? I use Google Chrome and ios and have never experienced this issue before.



Thank you for the speedy reply @Jodi LeBlanc.

Interestingly, I moved to Trello on my IPad & it worked just fine. I have a Mac so I am using Safari. It sounds like it might be best to use Chrome with Trello. I will try it. I appreciate your help!

Thanks @Kimberly Gordon I am glad it worked for you. Please let me know if it works in Chrome when you try it. Glad to hear it worked on your ipad.

Talk to you soon,

Also, you mentioned you are new to Trello, you may wish to check out the boards, they really helped me a lot for ideas, and the best part is if you see a board you like you can click copy board and it makes a copy for you that you can adapt for your own.

Have a great day!


Thank you, that would be VERY helpful! I’m bookmarking it now. 

Happy Friday!

Thanks @Kimberly Gordon Happy Friday to you too :)

I am using Google Chrome and also seem to be unable to add a card to a list of about 30 cards. It will also not let me start a new list.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Hi Bill, do you have the most recent version of chrome? You may also wish to reboot and try it again. I am using chrome with windows 10 and have some lists up to 50+ cards.
