Automate cover color with additional triggers?

Hi all!

I'm wondering if there is a way to automate changing a cover color when certain triggers are met, such as when the card is marked complete, when a card changes to due soon, when a card contains certain words in the title, when a label is added to a card, etc. I know you can do this with the labels that are colored, but I'm hoping to do it with covers. It's a lot of clicks to go in to select the due date, select the label, and then add a cover on top of that.

Sort of copying an answer from another thread, but if you have API access there is a sort of work around that I have set up through Butler. Right now I have my board set up that if a particular label is applied to a card then the card will change its cover color.


(apologies I dont know the best way to format this in the comments)

You can try:

Create a rule. Set the trigger as "when [label] is added to a card"

Put to URL : "{cardid}"

With Payload: "{"key" : "[your api key]","token" : "[your api token]", "cover" : {"color" : "purple"}}"


It takes a moment but this seemed to work for myself and other users on my board.

Not quite yet, but our team is looking into it, and we hope that's something we'll be able to add to Butler soon!

Please - I also need it.
