Sorting Cards Numerically in Trello

Good Morning,

 

I'll start off with an example to help me ask my question.  I have a list of cards that have numbers in the title. 

  • Example:  1200, 1120, 123, 5, 2, 7.
    • Currently Trello sorts like this:  1120, 1200, 123, 2, 5, 7.
    • I'd like the cards sorted liked this:  2, 5, 7, 123, 1120, 1200.

Is there a way to do this within Trello or with an add on?  If an add on is required, which add on would help this?

Please advise.

 

Thanks in advance!

@Roy Yoo Trello doesn't have any card sorting natively (does it?!) Butler will sort a list alphabetically, but you can ask it to sort numerically, if I recall correctly something like:

Sort list "blah" numerically

should work

I only see the following options for sorting:

  • Date Created (Newest)
  • Date Created (Oldest)
  • Card Name (Alphabetically)

@Roy Yoo oh right, strange I thought they had an option to sort numerically by card name. You can email their support to ask if they'd add it, they're usually pretty responsive.

Here is a Trellinator function that would do it:

You could install that Globally and any time you wanted to sort a list by name numerically just add a card "Sort" to it.

You can see more about how to install Trellinator here:
