I would like to know if it's possible to automatically name a (template) card upon creation of a board.


The board is always created from a template and the board name is assigned. Then the same name is assigned to the first card (in the first list) on that board 


I would like the card title to have the same name as the newly created board.


Is it possible to automate this?

Try Butler, which should absolutely help you with this.

Create a rule that renames the first card in the first list to match the board name. Here's an example rule:


* Trigger: Board is created from a template

* Condition: First card in first list has a generic name (e.g., "Card 1")

* Action: Rename card to the same name as the board


This way, when a new board is created from the template, the first card will automatically be named after the board. Give it a try.

Hope this helps - Happy to help further!!
Thank you very much and have a great one!

Warm regards
