Butler - How to share Board button between my boards?


I've created a new Board button in the Butler, but I'm not able to turn on this button in my other boards. All other types (card buttons, rules, calendar, ...) are working perfectly across my boards. 

What should I make to make it work?

Hi @Jan Ševčík 

Welcome to the Community!

If you head into Butler on a board where the button is enabled, you should see something like this:

Let us know if this helps!

Hi Esme, 

thank you for a fast reply. Unfortunately, this board is not part of any team (and I don't want it to be), so I'm unable to check this option.

With the Card buttons, rules etc. it just work without anything else, but not with this type :(

Sorry about that @Jan Ševčík, maybe it's because I'm a team member that I can tick that button, even on my personal boards? Probably! 

What I've resorted to in situations like this (where I've needed to get something onto another board) is to have 2 instances of whatever browser you're using open - side by side (e.g. Chrome window 1 - tab one - current board button (open Butler and edit the button so you can see all the actions) > Chrome window 2 - tab one - open in the board you want the new button to appear, then click Butler and Board Button). Make sure you open the board button on one side, and create a board button on the other. This means that you have 2 browser windows with 2 tabs with separate Butler sites open - one you already know works and one you want to have it copied into.

By doing it this way, you can directly either copy & paste (in the case of using variables), or you can type/pick from the menu, so that both buttons look and behave in the same way.

Of course, you can do it with 2 browser tabs in the same window, but that's (quite frankly) a pain!

Let me know if this helps!

Esme :)
