Hi everyone! And thank you very much, @adrienm for hunting! I made this Chrome Extension because I use Trello as my main personal task management tool (I'm a huge fan), and I had found it hard to decide on which task to work on first, while working on 10+ projects simultaneously. I'm very happy to see that it's useful for other people too! 🤓 I'm grateful to Adrien and Max from Mangrove for their help on the landing page, and to Ben, Xavier, Anthony, Merlin, Mathieu, Julie and Camille for their feedback and support! 🙏 And special thanks to @lailo_ch for having encouraged me to turn this idea into a product, I'll keep posting ideas on Pitchcard! I'll be listening and replying to your feedback and ideas here, so don't hesitate to comment! ✍️ Cheers! NEWS: You can support the development of this project on Kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/proj...) or on my Patreon page! (https://www.patreon.com/adrienjo...)

Thanks for building it @adrienjoly. It's a simple and yet powerful tool . We, at www.pitchcard.io, use it every single day. 👍

@adrienjoly @adrienm @lailo_ch THIS IS A GAME CHANGER!! q: no way to add checklists for cards? only sub tasks in a card?

@adrienjoly · Web developer + JS teacher.
@shtooova what do you mean? checklists are already contained in cards... :-s
Steven H@shtooova
@adrienjoly for example: checking off " cook an omelet"

@shtooova You can quickly archive a card by clicking on the small "edit" icon that appears on the top-right corner of a card. This is a native feature of Trello :-)

@adrienjoly @adrienm @lailo_ch Awesome! I'd been using a bookmarklet to do the same kind of thing, but at a global level. It would be wonderful to be able to see these on the http://trello.com/my/cards page. That way I could see my next actions across multiple boards. Swoon! IIRC this is not a trivial thing to implement. I'm pretty sure the Trello API doesn't give you the checklists on the individual cards when you access /my/cards via the API. I eventually had to iterate through the cards returned and grab the checklists individually. But it would be very very powerful to get this level of insight.

@adrienjoly yes but for me I like to see all the projects I've completed .. and I move them all to one list

@adrienjoly Hi! I work at Trello and just want to say that we are loving this over here! Would love to talk about how we could work together in some capacity, or even just help promote it since it's so great for our users. Look forward to hearing from you and thanks for your awesome hard work! Cheers!

@richarmstrong Hi Rich! I finally received an email from you, thank you! Would you mind forward the bounce messages to me, so that I can investigate what happened, please?

The absolute must for Checklists addicts! I'm so glad someone made this. Thanks Adrien.

@j_henches We should start a "Checklist-holics Anonymous" group! ;-) Thanks for your kind and hearted support, Julie!
David Feng@davidsfeng · Co-Founder at Reamaze
@adrienjoly @j_henches I have like 7 different checklists running at the same time! Do I qualify? We use trello here and this is going to be a must have for me at least :)

@adrienjoly · Web developer + JS teacher.
@davidsfeng well I have about 20 checklists running on the same board, so I believe that the extension will work well for you too! :-)

Looks like an official feature from Trello!

@tchret That would be great!

@openwhyd Hi Adrien! Your plugin is a complete bliss! 🙌 Thank you very much. We use Trello in our team daily. And honestly I hate the checklists for 2 reasons: 1) You need to open a card (you got this! bravo!) 2) Every time I create a checklist it offers me to enter its title. But I always start typing in the first item by mistake. This drives me so mad! Any solutions from you? Anyway, Kudos Adrien!

@alexanderisora Oh yeah, I know exactly how you feel, I always get mistaken too when creating a new Checklist in Trello! That sounds like a great idea of next extension to make, thank you for sharing, Alexander!
Alexander Isora@alexanderisora · itmeo.com co-founder, CryptoHacker
@adrienjoly wohoo! I hope you will succeed and force the world to love Trello checklists 😀
Julie Henches@j_henches · Freelance * Storytelling
@adrienjoly @alexanderisora I would love that!

Hey I sent you this feedback privately but I thought I'd make it public, here are some ideas for continuing the product although they can be ludicrous: - Assign team members to next steps - Assign a deadline for steps, and enable calendar reminders (maybe a bit overkill) - Assign a 'Time needed to complete' with each next step, to improve planning. - Create a board view where the items that have already been done appear side to side with what still needs to be done - LAST STEP: ask users to create the 'last step' first, so we have a clear view of where this card is going and can reverse-engineer the process - Automatically create a "Done" list in the Board, where all the next steps that have been crossed go. - Send a daily digest to the team with all the done, then you can replace iDoneThis. - Card color that automatically changes from red to green depending on how many next steps are needed to completion (not sure this is either useful or good) - An "Invite your friends" button. I'm the only one using the feature and it would be better if others from my team could see the next steps. - A "Feedback" button so next time I can juste type it there :) Keep up the good work Adrien!

@nicknem92 Thank you for the awesome ideas, Antonin! :-) I love the "reverse-engineerable last step" idea particularly, btw! That sounds like powerful productivity advice! Maybe the root of my (or our) next product? ^^
