What is the easiest way to move a list from one board to another?


I want to move a complete list (or at the very least the content of a complete list) from one board to another board. For obvious reasons, I don't want to loose the history recorded for each card in the source list.

What is the easiest way possible to do this? I'm currently not able to move neither list to another board nor the cards in the list to a new list on another board.

A list can't be moved on an another board. 

But card moving between boards is possible. why can't you do this ? 

If you have not permissions, you can't automate this. 

I tried drag'n'drop between two different tabs in the browser (each with one board visible), but that doesn't work.

I assume that you need to have two boards visible in the same browser tab in order to drag'n'drop, but how do you manage that? Is there another way than drag'n'drop?

I should have permissions since all the boards are my own. Would appreciate some more info on how it should be done...


There are 2 ways.

One manual. Open each card, on the right-hand side, select "move", choose board and list, and confirm.

One automatised. All cards can be moved in one shot with a butler rule. 

@Jonas_Pavletic , in this case you can create a rule like this

Trigger : when a card with a black label is added in list "{*}"

Associate to this trigger actions like 

  • collect all cards in list "{wildcard1}" into linked items in checklist "Tasks"
  • It allows to link the triggercard with all cards in the existing selected list
  • for each card linked from an item in checklist "Tasks", move the card in the list "{triggercardname}" on the board "myboard" 
  • It allows to move cards in the new list which is specified by the name of triggercard (newlistname = cardname), make sur that the board "myboard" exists.

Then just create a card which name is the newlistname, add a black label, and move the card in the list where are the cards to move.

Thanks a lot Ludo!

Automations solved the problem for me, really appreciated :)
