Automation: moving cards from one list to another at specific time intervals

Hello, I have set up an automation that a card is created and added to a list based on a specific trigger.


I want now that card to move automatically between lists on the same board at specific time intervals. 


Can you let me know if this is possible please?

If i understand correctly - you want a card to move from one column to another at a set time and/or interval... If thats true then the easiest path would be to use an automation to change the status (since status controls which column a card goes into).

If you mean list like row, then i'd need to know how you are populating the swimlanes.

Hope that helps. Give me a little more info and i could offer more.


Thank you Shawn! 

Every time a client contacts me, a card gets generated and added to a list.

10 minutes after that card gets added, I want it to move to a new list. This move triggers an automated email. 

2 days after that same card is moved, I want it to move again to a new list that triggers a follow up email. and so on.

The email follow ups I have them set up via Zapier and Mailchimp.

But I can't get this automated flow to work.


Thanks for your help Shaun.

Is the intent of moving it just to send the email, or do you need both a list change and the email?

both the list change and the email so I can keep track of a work flow.

So, sorry if this seems obvious but i have to check... have you tried using a trigger based on the "in X mins" option (see below)?

Maybe send me a pic of your automation as is?
