What's the best way to manage TO DO lists

I don't like the way Trello saves every past to do list, and doesn't give you a simple way to edit previous ones (adding to do items to them, for ex.)

Is there a better way to do this?

@Mark C can you elaborate a bit more on the behaviour you're seeing? I'm not sure how Trello is "saving" past todo lists and not allowing you to simply edit previous ones.

sure sorry it wasn't clear.


I meant when Trello offers you a 'Copy Items from', it seems to just store all the previous To do lists that I've created.

The problem arises when I want to select an old To Do list from that Copy Items From, then add other to do items to that list. It then becomes confusing as to which list to choose from the CIF list the next time.

Would like to be able to delete past to do lists which are automatically saved in the CIF list, and edit the saved ones easier/ in a more logical way.

Hopefully that made sense?!

@Mark C Cool so Trello calls these "Checklists".

The easiest way to have template Checklists is to put them on a card with the name starting with "." that way they sit at the top of the list.
