Adding the name of Previous Month in card title


I'm attempting to write a rule that creates a new card on the first Monday of every month that reminds me to write a report for the previous month.

The problem: I'd like the title of the card to be "Write [PreviousMonth] [Year] Report" (e.g. on the first Monday of August, a card is created titled "Write July 2022 Report").  But I don't see a variable that does this in either the variables section for Butler, or the Arithmetic and formatting in date variables section.

Is there a way I can make it use the previous month name?

Hi @Leslie Rieger ! The variable you want is {lastmonthname} :)

It's all detailed here: (look under "Date Variables")

Oh my gosh, I completely missed it!  That's what I get for trying to create rules at the end of the day.
