Copying cards, lists, or boards

You can copy pretty much anything in Trello, making it really useful to re-use existing cards, checklists, lists, and boards.


Open a card and select Copy from the right sidebar under Actions. After clicking copy, you can name the copied card, choose what you want to keep when it's copied and where you would like to copy the card to.

You can also copy a card by right clicking the card from board view.



Copying a list will copy all of the cards on that list into a new list, including the checklists, attachments, and comments from the original cards. To copy a list, click the context menu in the top right of the list and choose Copy list. When a list is copied, we'll copy card descriptions, attachments, and comments. We won't copy card history/activity (like when a card was moved between lists).

You can even copy entire boards! Open the board's menu, then click More and choose Copy board. When a board is copied, we'll copy cards and their descriptions. We don't copy comments, card activity or archived cards, however. If you want a "full copy" of the board, the best bet is to copy each list individually and move it to your new board. You might also check to see if you want to change the board admins, or move the board to a new Workspace, instead.

Bonus! Checklists on cards

You can also copy just the checklists on cards. When you go to add a checklist, there's an option to Copy items from which will let you copy any other checklist on your board.
