We have been using trello for about a year now in our shop to track the current status of our products running through production.
We use 15 lists on our Trello board and move cards around throughout the day.
Slim Lists for Trello has been the only way we found to reduce the width of the lists so they all fit on one screen. This is after we have ZOOMED out to the point were the text is just legible.
Now Slim Lists for Trello has stopped working, possible due to a Chrome update, and it has become a bit of a hassle moving cards around and having to continuously scroll back and forth.
I know it has been asked many times and I have spent hours searching. Is there any chance this feature will be added to Trello? Or does anyone know of another extension that will allow you to control the width of each list.
Have you tried the Chrome Extension Strelloids: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/strelloids-trello-on-ster/modiglgpojgocbnehgegipohkfejddfo
While it does not offer slimer columns, it offer collapsible lists and lists in multiple rows:
Thank you for the suggestion. I will definitely check it out.
I wonder why there has not been any other attempt, besides Slim Lists, to allow for column size to be adjusted?
I know it has been asked about so many times over many years.
Slim Lists is good, but it just takes the columns to 50% their original size. Which is great for what we need.
A workaround for those that were using Pro4Trello, or Slim Lists for Trello which broke in the recent Trello updates.
Go to https://trello.com/labs and disable the option “Board experience enhancements”
This will revert back to the old Trello and allow these extensions to work as they did before.
Of course you will loose any enhancement that Trello rolled out in the recent updates. But in our case, being able to continue using these extensions is crucial. When / if these extensions are updated to work with the new Trello changes you can enable this feature again.
Well it looks like Trello removed this 'Board experience enhancements' option as of yesterday. Or maybe moved it somewhere else?
Now we are forced to use the new Trello updates and the previous labs do not work anymore.
What a bummer.
I guess I don't quite understand why Trello does not add the option to control the width of the lists. It has been asked for for so many years.
I know Trello promotes using power ups from 3rd parties to get new features, but if they do not coordinate updates with these 3rd parties, it really hurts the end user.
Instead they say to reach out to the developer and ask them to make updates. But this is not always an easy task. Sometimes I miss the old desktop versions of software that just work year after year.
Anyway, I hope this gets addressed someday. As of now our board is a mess again.
