Trello Checklist

Disclaimer: Novice user of Trello. Is there a way for the checklist to be the card? As in name the card CHECKLIST then the items on the card are the checklist? It seems to be a lot of duplication in the current set up. I have to name the card, then name the checklist on the card, then create the checklist. I was trying for like a 'daily to do' with checklist of items for that day but I can't see to find a good way to set it up. Thanks!

Hi @Melissa McMahan 

welcome to this wonderful community!

You are right - the way to generate a checklist can be long way! But you can easily shorten it:

  • Create a checklist card you oftenly use (as you wrote 'daily to do')
  • Go to 'Make template'
  • Done!

Now you can choose this template when creating a new card by clicking on this image.png

Hope this helps you! Feel free to ask for more help.

Thanks. I'd rather be able to skip the 'description' step and just have the card be a long checklist - like the name of the card be the 'To Do Today' then the rest of the items be the checklist but I don't think it's doable. Thanks for the response tho!
