Automatically follow the process of a card in list

smithbang October 22, 2022

I'm just getting started with Trello, but it's already proving to be a fantastic project management tool. We're using it to track submissions, in progress, and completed tasks on a number of projects. Now, we're wondering if there's a Power-Up that would help us automatically track the dates a card moves through the stages, without requiring us to set start dates and due dates. Does anyone have experience with something like this?

You should try looking at https://support.atlassian.com/trello/docs/butler-variables/ under the "Card's time" to see if the variables there fit your needs.

The link provided by @milynnus is great, definitely if you want to get very granular.

If you are just looking the capture the dates that a card is moved into certain lists you can do this quite easily with butler automation

  1. Create a custom date field for each event you want to timestamp (probably one for each "stage" of your process assuming your stages align to distinct lists
  2. Create a set of rules along the lines of, "when a card is moved into list name XYX,  set custom date field XYZ to now" 

No Powerup needed.  Hope it helps
