Hi @Jialing Xie ! I just stumbled across a board button that might do what you want. I didn't realize this was an option sorry!

Great! 🎉 Glad that works for you 😃

I also thank you  but how can I sort all the tasks that are in the list, for all the lists?

@Hannah Morgan  What you described is sorting the lists in the board, not the tasks inside the list.
Is it possible to sort the tasks inside the list, for all the lists of the boards, without sorting the lists? 
Building an automation for each list is possible, frustrating but possible because I need to build it for each list separately and if I change a list name or add another list, it stop working.

Are you wanting the actual full lists to sort alphabetically from left to right? You're able to sort the cards within a list, but I'm not sure about automatically sorting the way lists are displayed on a board. As far as I know, the only way is to manually click and drag the lists around your board to order it the way you want.

yes, you are correct, i would like to sort all lists by alphabetic order. sounds like this is not immediately available? i found this feature useful especially when i have an array of lists on the board needing to be sorted. when do you think this feature could possibly go live?

No, it's not currently available as far as I know. This forum is mostly made up of members who don't work for Atlassian/Trello; it's a community forum where anyone can answer questions, so you'll need to follow this guide here to submit your request:
