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.
