Trello for touchscreen windows 10

We are starting to use Trello on tablets on forklifts in our factory. They are prefarably equiped with Windows 10  as our ERP systems also runs on Windows.  A swe tried this we found out that drag and drop with cards does not work (press and hold works as if it is a right mouse click)

There is a windows 10 trello app in the microsoft app store but now I read that it does not support non IOS and Non Android OS unfortunately. Is there any chance in the future that the app will work on Windows tablets?

Thx, Paul

This feels like a very basic functionality that should be standard... Moving cards is crucial to the entire work flow and if you can't do that I'm not sure how to get around it... 

Sorry to say. I have moved our company from Trello because of this issue. There's no excuse unless you don't want customers. We can't wait for 1 more year for such a barebones basic feature. And Atlassian is aware but doesn't commit the 10 man-hours required to fix this once and for all.

I'm also considering abandoning Trello because of this...

2019 and this still isn’t fixed!? Come on! I look like a moron carrying around a Bluetooth mouse with my tablet to meetings just so I can use Trello! This is way overdue.

+1000 for touch support for Trello on windows devices.  Useless on my microsoft surface unless I get a mouse.

Two years later and it's even more crucial but missing feature. Trello, please!

Hi Paul,

Right now, we don't have immediate plans for providing touch support outside of our Android and iOS app. While the browser version of Trello does work with some touchscreen devices, it isn't officially supported.

I understand that's disappointing, and I'll let our team know that this is something you'd be interested in. In the meantime, you can also move a card by opening that card and the selecting the "Move" button in the card's menu.

Please make this a priority. Touch isn't going away on Windows and drag-and-drop is necessary to make Trello worthwhile. Currently I can't even use the drag-and-drop in the Chrome version with my Surface, which really makes it an outlier. Support in the desktop version would be preferable though. Please at least put some minimal emphasis on Windows touch.

I agree with @ckain11 - Touch screen is getting more and more common on Windows machines

@Caity this is disappointing for sure. I just finished setting up a Windows 10 touch screen, and subsequently spent a bunch of time troubleshooting why cards could not be dragged in the app or in a browser. I assumed it was a Windows problem, but I can drag items in other programs successfully.

Please, I submit that it is valuable to support dragging cards in the world's most used operating system. 

In Windows Explorer, for example, a touch and drag gives priority to scrolling. Holding briefly, and releasing operates a right-click. Holding briefly and dragging behaves like click and drag. 

When would this functionality be fixed?

Any word on this? I would like to add my name to the list of people that want this.

Ping! Any update? I echo the sentiments of previous posts. Please add touch support!

Hey so is there any chance this is something that might happen in the future? I just spent a lot of money to have a 43" touch screen, only to realize I cant drag Trello cards around on windows. My IT department is not going to allow iOS or android devices to be hooked up to the network. I would really like to see this feature, Is there a way to properly ask for it?

Atlassian can you please explain why you refuse to implement this often-requested feature to bring the Windows app closer to feature parity with their iOS and Android siblings? Are we not worth the effort?

Wow, it's 2020 now and this feature is not here? I thought it was browser problem or Surface problem but only I found out you guys decided not to support it. Maybe it's time to google "trello alternative" now.

Please can the team at Atlassian/Trello explore implementing this, or at least provide reasons to the community as to why this hasn't been implemented yet? 

I can understand if this requires a whole back-end restructure, but I don't believe this is the case. Why hasn't this been prioritised as a feature for the thousands of Windows touchscreen Trello users?

Please can you provide us an update as it is now 2021.

Lol-ing at the fact that this thread has been going for nearly 4 years now and there is still no touch - drag-and-drop support.

Literally every single other kanban app has this now.

You risk falling behind here Atlassian.

Nearly half way through 2020 and no touch screen support, this is getting ridiculous 😂 can we go back to dos command prompt please?

I've just bought a new Ms Surface and i'm so greatly disappointed! I could not expect that from Trello team (

This is pretty crazy that it is April 2019 and Trello doesn't support touchscreens on Windows or the web, like the website on my iPad. I'm honestly shocked and swore I was using the app wrong at first. We have daily standups in front of our Perceptive Pixels (precursor to the Surface Hub) and it is a joke watching us move cards around and makes our standup take longer (which if you have daily standups, you know this sucks).

Please fix this.

It's very surprising that Trello staff seems to be showing no interest in correcting this issue.

I've been searching for a solution regarding this, and this is the only one flaw with Trello, that may cause me to completely drop this system and find another.

Please do the reasonable thing, to correct this issue for your users.
Thank you.

I'm an avid Trello user and moved my entire organisation over a few years ago. This year we've upgraded all of our laptops to Microsoft Surface Pros so are struggling now that we find it's incompatible without lugging a mouse everywhere.

Come on Trello / Altassian. Listen to users please. No support for touch costs a lot of customers money. I bought surface tablets, now the use is pointless. Every customer just assumes that it is supported. Like supporting svga and soundblaster. We also assume that......

Following this discussion for 2 years and never started using Trello for this reason. Having touch on Windows and browser is essential for us to get started with it.

Jan 2020 - looks like it’s still not possible to drag cards on a Windows 10 touch screen.

Pity because Trello is otherwise such a great program. But, yeah, it’s pretty useless without this. I mounted a touch screen to a wall in a common area planning to use Trello, but now I can’t. (I get that browser support for drag-drop is a bit sketchy at the best of times and most websites have s bit of trouble, but this is fundamental to the Trello workflow). We would all appreciate it if someone could please look into this. 

Dear developers,
please make sure that a modern operation for all end devices is possible. If you already offer a Windows-App then please also on the today's conditions of the time.

Thank you!

Common! Please add touch support for web and Trello desktop. it is possible :) 

1) I'm super surprised to find that dragging on a touchscreen in the windows app is not yet native

2) a bit surprised that this feature request has been going on all this time

3) not surprised at Atlassian's disregard of this request... we're slowly moving away from your products... we see you!

Also really really disappointed in Trello. Just bough a touch screen to have a smooth digital kanban board. Reading this whole thread, I started googling on 'Trello Alternatives'...

3 years later and still not fixed? It is very disappointing. I used to love Trello and used it for years both for personal and professional use but now that I have a windows surface I can't use it freely anymore and I will have to switch to another tool even if I liked it...

I just bought a brand new Lenovo X1 Titanium Yoga with a touchscreen. I asked in advance and was told that trello would not work on "large touch screens" (e.g. in factories) since it wasnt intended for that. On that basis, I also a bought a trello subscription.

 

I just started the laptop and guess what: It DOES NOT WORK. No way to use the Yoga without a mouse. So no tablet use.

 

Trello, please get this working asap...

Also das finde ich jetzt wirklich unter aller Kanone, dass sich Trello nicht einmal zu einem Statement herunterlässt!

A Gibt es eine Antwort vom Support direkt?

B Google Chrome / Flags hat bietet Sonderfunktionen, wäre das allenfalls eine Lösung?

C ist die Verwendung des Betriebssystems Android eine Lösung?

D Was ist die Alternative zu Trello, könnt Ihr mir einige Produkte nennen?

Beste Grüsse aus der Schweiz

I looked at a number of alternatives. One worth trying is ClickUp, which is a Trello-on-steroids! The reason that I did not switch over yet is because their Android app is still lacking some of the functionality that I need. But they are very active on processing user requests and communicating their roadmaps. (Btw, they even offer a function to import Trello projects).

Having a touchscreen laptop and using mouse to drag-and-drop feels really stupid.

Going to watch this thread and use Post-Its instead of Trello ... 

Can you please add support for touch on the Windows Trello desktop app?

I'm a big Trello fan and want to use it on my windows Surface. I'm not sure what adding touch support requires on the engineering side. The only aspect of it I really care about is being able to drag/move cards to reorder them and put them in different lists. 

I tired to buy surface for trello.

However I need to give up for this.

We just migrated our entire organisation off Trello because of the lack of touchscreen support. 

I'm contemplating the same thing. If you don't mind me asking, what platform did you move to and how do you like it?
