Bulter label rule?

I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to create a butler rule for example if I type Bob Smith's name on a label, can I associate it with his company label? that way it auto populates instead of me searching for additional labels each time?

If I have a label for Bob Smith and he works at ABC Plumbing when I label my card Bob Smith I also want it to label my Card ABC Plumbing?

You could make a Lookup Board, that has a card for every person-label, with the card description holding the company-label.

If all person-labels are blue, and all company-labels are green:

You can have a rule where: When the blue label is added to a card, Look up a card with the name {labelname} in board "Lookup Board", and add the green "{foundcarddescription}" label to the card.

I'm sure there are other configurations for the rule, the important bit is that you can use a Lookup Board to associate data and have Butler act on it.

I think you can do that. That's why many people use popular and catchy names for their labels. I think that's how this industry works. So if you want to create a brand, I will recommend you choose a name that will suit your brand the most and catch people's eyes. For instance, some friends of mine working in the PR section of a cooling company told me that people remember small and interesting names. So if you want your company to become popular and easily recognized, you better use this advice
