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

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.

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

Okay thanks for the answer, we will switch our tablets to Android. It also seems our ERP system (Exact) will soon be supporting Android

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...
