Automation - how to archive card and link this card in a checklist/attachment on another card

M105 June 23, 2023

Hello,

in the Trello Automation feature, i want to do:

1. On "card x" click "archive 2" button

2. This will trigger:

 --> Archive this "card x" card

 --> Link this archived "card x" card on another card's checklist/attachment which is not archived (goal is to easily find this archived card while keeping it tidy)

 

Is this possible? Been struggling.

 

Thank you!

Hi there! Welcome to Trello community!

I tested here and have a suggestion that could work for you! 
You'll create an automation button that when you click it on a card you want to be archived will do the following:
--> find a card with a title XXX (the card you want to save the links) and add the link of the card you triggered (using the variable triggercardlink) to a checklist XXX (that will keep track of your cards), then will find the original card that will be archived and archive it.

It will be like this:
find a card titled "CardTracking" in list "Track", add item "{triggercardlink}" to checklist "CardsArchived", find a card titled "{triggercardname}", find a card with link "{triggercardlink}", and archive the card

Hope that helps! You can find more about automation options and variables in the links below:
