Trello on a touch screen

We use SCRUM for various development projects, mostly from a regular whiteboard.  However, I have previously been very pleased with the ease-of.-use of trello when working in geographically dispersed teams, and now want to have the flexibility of merging things by gathering around a large touch screen in the office. 

However, I find that dragging cards between lists does not work at all.  Instead of moving a card, the entire view tries to scroll (e.g. left to right) as I attempt to drag. I found some old discussions of this issue (2014?) and was just wondering if there is a solution?  The problem seems to be agnostic to choice of browser.

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. It is the only one flaw with Trello which may cause me to completely drop this system, and find another.

Please do the reasonable thing, which is correcting this issue for your users.
Thank you.

Hi ANdrew. We use a zaagtech IR Frames from China which has built in HID (human interface device) drivers in the touch frame set up. We have been doing this for years. The IR frames work with all size screens. Thanks

Hey Jens!

Currently, the only "supported" touch screen capability is with the iOs and Android app version of Trello.  It may work hit-or-miss using a web browser, but it's not officilaly supported functionality.

I'd recommend submitting a feature request so they can know how many users really want the functionality, and potentially get supported soon!

Thanks Matt, wlthough not the answer I was hoping for .... :)


This is the nth time I've googled to see if this is done yet, and keep coming back to this post. Is there a feature idea for this that I can upvote?

My use-case is I have a touch-screen laptop and it would be great to be able to drag cards around.

Hrm... Maybe this could be solved with a tampermonkey script...

I have the exact same idea and was thinking of getting a touch screen monitor to mount on my wall for home project management using trello. I figure the touch screen is just an emulated mouse pointer that should do everything a mouse could. Guess it's not that easy.

It would be a big help if it would work on the WIN 10 App too. So one could use it on a big wall-touchscreen....

It works with a digi pen at least.
