Butler. Delete all cards with no description

Is there a way to delete all cards with no description from the specific list.

It would be great if such a script ran each week.

Use the calendar to set a trigger card, the actions when trigger will be to use cascade collect card > content > description is empty, into links under a checklist temp, and for each card linked in item , archive the card. Try it. Butler does not have a delete option

Thank you for prompt reply

The suggested solution would work well, the only problem is there is no cascade action for the calendar trigger

@Nick This Trellinator function would do it:

You could run that as an adhoc function in our BenkoBot platform:

just click "adhoc" in the top right once authenticated.

Unfortunately we don't have scheduled commands in BenkoBot (yet! coming soon!) but you could also run this as a Listener, by for example triggering the command by using Butler to create a card in the board called "DELETE EMPTY DESCRIPTIONS" once per week, then this install this listener code on the board:

This version would remove all cards without a description from anywhere in the board:

Your Butler command to trigger this would look like this:
