Trello - Add Checklist at Top by Default?

Instead of adding a Checklist at the bottom of the list of all Checklists on a card is there a way to reverse the order so added Checklist from the picker show up at the top by default? I'm trying to avoid having to drag/ drop most recently added checklists.

Hi Ken,

Marta here, from Trello Support.

Thanks for sharing that with us. I'm afraid it's not possible to change that behavior right now. However, I understand how this would be beneficial so I’ll pass your interest in this on to our team for consideration—let me know if there's any additional info you'd like for me to send their way.

If you're curious about how our team decides on what requests we work on, this article gives some insight into that process:

Thanks Marta-

I appreciate your swift response. And, makes me feel kinda good to know you think it's beneficial, being able to optionally add Checklists at the top of existing Checklists by default. 

Keep up the great work!

My best,


@Ken Wulf If you want to invest some time figuring out about Butler for Trello, then this might be a solution:

It does not work for me as I need the "add checklist to top of card" functionality on demand and not for all cards.

Hi Marta

I would like to re-iterate the need for the option to have new checklists go to the top of the card.

I have also sent a feature request email to the email address in the link you attached.

Hoping this feature gets implemented as soon as possible.



I, I suggest as well that Trello implements this option for having the new checklists on top of the card.



Yes, this must be implemented. It is limiting me incredible much in the way I am using cards and checklists right now, to the extent I am considering changing from Trello to something else.

Please take this request serious!
