How To Articles

As a frequent Trello user, I often have the need to duplicate a Trello board on my iPad. Whether it’s for creating a new project template or having a backup of an existing board, the ability to copy a board proves to be highly convenient. In this article, I will walk you through the steps of copying a Trello board on your iPad, while sharing my personal thoughts and commentary.

Step 1: Open the Trello App

To begin, open the Trello app on your iPad. If you haven’t already, make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest version of the app from the App Store.

Step 2: Navigate to the Board

Once you are in the Trello app, navigate to the board that you want to copy. You can do this by tapping on the board’s name or thumbnail in your Trello home screen. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the board and its contents before proceeding.

Step 3: Tap on the “More” Button

In the top-right corner of the screen, you will find a button with three dots, often referred to as the “More” button. Tap on this button to reveal a drop-down menu of additional options.

Step 4: Select “Copy Board”

From the drop-down menu, select the “Copy Board” option. This will initiate the process of copying the board.

Step 5: Customize the Copied Board

After selecting “Copy Board,” you will be prompted to customize the copied board. Here, you can choose a new name for the board, select which lists and cards to include, and even specify whether to include members, labels, and due dates.

This is where you can truly make the copied board your own. Consider adding a personal touch to the board’s name or rearranging the lists to suit your needs. Remember, the goal here is to create a board that serves as a template or backup, so tailor it to your preference.

Step 6: Tap on “Create Board”

Once you are satisfied with the customizations, tap on the “Create Board” button to finalize the copying process. The Trello app will then create a new board based on your specifications.

Step 7: Access the Copied Board

Once the copying process is complete, you will be automatically redirected to the newly created copied board. Take a moment to explore the board and ensure that everything has been copied successfully.


Copying a Trello board on your iPad is a straightforward process that can be done in just a few steps. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily create a template or backup of your Trello boards, allowing for greater flexibility and peace of mind.
