Automatically add list name to new cards in list?

Hello Awesome Trello Community,

I'm wondering if it is possible to automatically add the title of a list (not title of the board) to cards that are created in that list? E.g. If the list title was "Priority 1" and the card title was "Buy socks" the title would automatically become "Priority 1 - Buy socks". I just don't want to add the list title every time when I'm making a ton of cards. I'm wanting to find a way to remember which list the card came from when I have many lists. The list title would make it easy Seems like Butler/automate could do this, but I can't figure it out. Thanks for your time!

You can do this with Butler's variables. See


You'd probably want a rule like 'when a card is added to the board, rename the card to "{cardlistname} - {cardname}"'

Thank you! I'll give that a shot!
