How To Add A List On Your Trello Board

Do you need another container for your cards on Trello? Or do you want to add another list to organize new cards on your board? In any case, you can add new lists to your Trello board whenever you want. Follow our guide below, and we’ll show you the steps you need to know.


In Trello, lists are a collection of cards arranged vertically. With the help of this feature, you can group similar tasks, ideas, reminders, and other stuff.

Having multiple lists within your board can help you separate urgent tasks, ideas, and other information, to organize your board properly. Here’s our guide to creating a new list on your Trello board.

How to add a list on Trello

If you want to have another place on your board to compile new cards, you can create a new list on the board. After creating the new list, you can add new cards or move existing ones from other lists.

You can create a new list on your Trello board whether you’re on your phone or computer. Check our tutorials below, and we’ll guide you every step of the way.

On your desktop:

  1. Visit the Trello web app on your preferred web browser and sign in to your account.
  2. Go to the board that you want to manage.
  3. Head to the rightmost side of the board and click the “Add another list” button.

  4. Name the list and click the “Add list” button to confirm your decision.

That’s how you add a new list on the Trello web app. After creating the new list, you can add more cards or transfer existing ones from other lists on the app.

You can drag your lists to rearrange them across the board. Changes made to your board are visible to everyone that has access to it.

On the Trello app for Android:

  1. After signing in to your account, head to the board that you want to manage.

  2. Head to the rightmost part of the board and tap the “Add list” option.

  3. Enter the name of the new list and tap the check icon on the top right corner to confirm your decision.

That’s how you add more lists from the Trello mobile app. If you ever change your mind, you can always archive lists to remove them from the board.

Since deleting things is permanent on Trello, you can only archive a list to hide them from your active lists on the board. However, you can move all your archived lists to an inactive board that you can delete.

To wrap it all up

Now that you know how to create a new list on Trello, you can have another section where you can place new cards to organize information on your board. Always remember that you can archive lists that you no longer need to remove from your board.
