How do I copy a card from one Trello Board to another?

I am wondering if certain boards are set to be the mainboards and therefore content i.e. cards cannot be copied across from one board to another as is the case that I seemingly have

Hi @Craig Rook 

Welcome to the Community!

If you open the card and scroll to the bottom, there's an 'actions' list (usually next to the comments section on desktop), which looks like this:

You can click copy then select the board and list you'd like to move it to, you also have the option to keep the comments and change the title.

Hope this helps :) 

Hi thanks BUT this doesnt work

It will only allow me to move the card in the existing board

Hi @Craig Rook 

Thanks for getting back to me. 

This is what it looks like when I click 'copy':

If you click on the board in 'copy to' it will bring up a list of all the boards you have.

If this isn't available to you, could you upload a screenshot so that we can see, and we'll try and troubleshoot from there.

Esme :) 



This is the problem it doesn't bring up any other board than the one I am in even though the company has numerous boards therefore I can only move inside this board which I do not want to do always

Hi Craig

It might be that you're not a specific user type on the other boards?

It might help to look at this link that details visibility and control and see if you're not set up to be able to add cards to other boards?

It seems like it's a problem with your company's admin within Trello, not Trello itself.

Hi Esme - thanks will look and see
