Automate add and remove labels base on rules - nextgen


Is it possible to add labels to cards automatically base on some rules and remove the labels as well base on some rules ?

For example - in nextgen, label is the only way I can play as filter query .. so when a card is in a column, I want to be able to add the status of the column as the label and 

when the card to another column - remove the label and add the appropriate status label 

Is this possible ?

Yes, I think that this is possible using an Automation rule (more information here if needed).

However, I would rather recommend you tu use a Classic project instead of using a Next-Gen one, in order to be able to request directly on what you want instead of using a complicated Workaround.


Let me know if it helped,


I have used the classic project before 

I need the roadmap and few things in the nextgen 


I will check the automation link 




Hi Guilhem 

Have you tried the automation rule? i did set one up but doesn't seem to do what I am expecting it to do ...

any help will be great.. thanks 

I'm seeing that this use of automation REPLACES the existing labels rather than ADDING the new one :-(
