Automating field values

I'm wondering if it's possible to automate the value of a field based on selections from a couple of custom fields.


For example, you have a field like scope (high / med / low) number of affected users (1, 2, 3)


then if scope is x and affected users is y then priority would be z.  Can you do something like this with just custom fields powerup?  Or do I need an additional powerup?

You just need to prepare 9 parameter cards, 3 custom fields and one butler rule. 

  • Create 3 custom fields scope, users, priority
  • Create list "Priority" which contains different parameter cards with
    • a name using this pattern scope - users (9 possible combinations) 
    • a description which contains the associated level of priority
  • Create a cardbutton which triggers this action :
lookup a card titled "{{%scope}} - {{%users}}" in list "Priority", and set custom field "priority" to "{foundcarddescription}" 

This rule allows to collect appropriate card regarding the value in custom fields scope and users, and to set the level of priority from  found card description.

Then just set custom fields scope and users, and press the card button.

Note: 9 cards can be stored in a parameter board to avoid to duplicate them in each useful board. In this case, precise in the rule the boardname. 

Thanks, thats working exactly how I wanted!! thanks so much!

Good news. Can you please accept the answer so that it can be referred by other users in future.
